    This is the $30 Dick Tie (currently a Kickstarter campaign with only $149 raised towards its modest $900 goal). It's a men's dress tie with a discreet penis shape. That way you can attend business meetings with a giant pecker tied around your neck and nobody will be the wiser... / Continue →

    Forts, not farts. Squishy farts are totally different and, at least in my experience, often result in running to the bathroom to check your underwear. These (the blue pieces) are Squishy Forts, modular pillow fort construction kits designed by Ross Currie (and not Marie Curie... / Continue →

    That's not the same blue! This is a Kickstarter for Nix, a $99 Bluetooth enabled smartphone accessory that can identify the color of anything you rest it on, so you can paint your office the exact same color of that coffee shop you really love. Granted it won't look as good i... / Continue →

    This is the Omni 'Move Naturally In Your Favorite Game' system. Oh, it's not actually a treadmill by the way, it's just slick plastic that you wear special shoes on that give just the right amount of slip and traction so you can run around in there chasing bad guys and shootin... / Continue →

    This is the Mutator, a small plug you insert into your iPhone's headphone jack that, with a twist, completely silences your phone from audio stemming from games, videos, apps, alarms, Siri, etc. etc. You know, because the little switch on the side doesn't work for that (althou... / Continue →

    Remember back in February, 2011 when Detroiters pulled together and funded a Kickstarter to build a giant RoboCop statue? Can you believe that was over two years ago? TIME IS FLYING. I feel like I'm going to wake up tomorrow and be 60 and be all, holy shit, nobody ever chang... / Continue →

    This is the ComfyBreasts Relaxation System. It's a full body pillow with a hollowed out section to rest your breasts in and relieve pressure on them. Because remember ladies: a comfy tit is a happy tit. Also: a boob in the hand is worth over a dozen in the bush. The ComfyBre... / Continue →

    Because scooters and pogo-sticks are both cool, but not like super cool, somebody combined the two into the JumpX, a poorly named (come on -- PoGooter) pogo-stick/scooter hybrid. Does it do tricks? You bet your sweet padded ass it does tricks! You get good at this thing and ... / Continue →

    Heat: it's bad for your nuts. That's why balls actually hang -- to keep them further from the body and a couple degrees cooler for MAXIMUM SPERM PRODUCTION. That's also why you shouldn't drive to work every morning with a hot cup of coffee between your legs. A Slurpee, absol... / Continue →

    The Klymit Ulaar Jacket is a jacket that has a bunch of air pockets that can be inflated a la Reebok Pumps. Allegedly they help keep you warm, but I couldn't reach my weather wizard on the crystal ball this morning so I have no idea if that's actually true. I think he's busy b... / Continue →

    Boob-dialing: up 2,000% since 2012. This is the Joeybra, a bra with an elastic pocket on the side that's large enough to hold your phone, cash, and credit cards. How you're supposed to access them is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with taking your shirt off in... / Continue →
