    For those of us without millions of dollars, this is the $6 Pizza Night Light designed by Steph Mantis. It looks like a little slice of cheese pizza on a paper plate and helps keep monsters away while you sleep. Plus illuminate the walk to the bathroom for that 3AM spicy jala... / Continue →

    Because every single product should be available in both Star Wars and dinosaur themes, this is the $15 silicon T-Rex Oven Mitt designed and sold by ThinkGeek. It can pick up hot pans with its mouth without burning your hand. Presumably, it can also be slathered with lube and... / Continue →

    This is the Edible Spoon Maker, a real coming-soon product. You just use the included spoon-shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough of your choice, put it in the molds, and 3 to 4 minutes later, BAM -- edible spoons. What kind of dough would you use? I'm gonna go with Play-Doh... / Continue →

    This is the $32 Melting Toht Candle available from Firebox. As it burns, it looks more and more like brutal Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht as his face melts off at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Nazis open the Ark of the Covenant and suffer the wrath of God. T... / Continue →

    This is a video from Vat19 of an employee sinking into a bathtub filled with 500 pounds of their Liquid Glass Thinking Putty, then trying to get back out. Liquid Glass Thinking Putty is basically clear silly putty. At rest it's almost perfectly clear. I feel bad for that guy... / Continue →

    Power Toothpaste is toothpaste infused with caffeine. That caffeine will be absorbed by your gums when you brush in the morning (you do brush your teeth in the morning, right? I don't, then I come to work and talk as close to everyone's face as possible), helping you wake up.... / Continue →

    The Ruggie is an alarm clock in a rug that only turns off after you stand on it with both feet for three seconds or more (it can be programmed for longer). It's supposed to get you out of bed in the morning without snoozing. The alarm runs on 3 AAA batteries, and comes with a... / Continue →

    Forget pillow hoodies, I wanna learn to hover-sleep like that guy! The Hypnos is a hoodie that has an inflatable pillow insert in the back of the hood. That way you can sleep anywhere, not that I've ever had a problem sleeping anywhere. Okay that's not true, but when I do ha... / Continue →

    The Technomancer 2.0 Digital Wizard Hoodie is a $120 hoodie available from ThinkGeek (previously an April Fools' joke that they made real). The hoodie has accelerometers in the sleeves programmed to read nine different spell-casting arm movements, each one of which produces a u... / Continue →

    The Mewgaroo Hoodie (~$50) is a hoodie with a giant pouch on the front for a kitty to curl up in. Also works for small dogs. The pouch has a removeable, washable liner so it doesn't get all funky in there. Plus the hood has little ears and the cuffs have paw pads on them so ... / Continue →

    Because I'm convinced it's somebody's (and possibly multiple people's) job to make sure every product is available with a Star Wars theme, this is the $15 Star Wars Lightsaber Flatware Set available from ThinkGeek. Just to be clear though, $15 only gets you a single set (one L... / Continue →

    This is the Star Wars Ewok Knit Hooded Scarf available from ThinkGeek. It costs $25 and kind of makes you look like an Ewok. I say kind of because I can still tell the girl in the picture is human. I am a detective. Besides, you don't want to look too much like an Ewok anyw... / Continue →

    Groupon (of all places) is selling these clip-in man buns for men who want hair buns but don't have the hair or know-how. They're allegedly a $65 value (AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA) but only $10 if you act now. Over 5,000 have already been bought, presumably as gag gifts or I don't want... / Continue →

    This is the $11 Star Wars Chewbacca Can Cooler available from ThinkGeek (previously: this much less furry one from Entertainment Earth). It gives a user that authentic drinking-out-of-a-rug experience. You like hair in your mouth? Who DOESN'T like hair in their mouth? In my... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Death Star Waffle Maker available from ThinkGeek. It makes a single 7-inch Death Star waffle at a time. Now, by a show of hands -- who likes pancakes more than waffles? Now everybody look around. The people with their hands up clearly don't appreciate syrup ... / Continue →

    Thanks to the request I made in that article about Fallout beer, Bethesda has announced a partnership with Jones Soda to bring real Fallout Nuka Cola Quantum exclusively to Target stores on Fallout 4's release day (November 10th). The drink is actually a repackaged version of ... / Continue →

    This is Outer Space Vodka. It costs $40 for a 750mL bottle and has been distilled through actual meteorites four times for EXTRA SPACE CANCER. Obviously, nobody is going to buy it except for the glass alien head bottle. If I was in college I would buy a bottle, finish it, then ... / Continue →

    This is the Darth Vader silicon oven mitt available from ThinkGeek for $15 (previously: this space slug oven mitt). It looks like one of Vader's gloves and has the Imperial crest on the palm. Darth Vader's actual gloves did not have that because it would have gotten in the way... / Continue →
