    This is the Star Trek Borg Cube Fridge available from ThinkGeek ($150). It can hold nine cans of soda plus a little extra and glows green inside and out. Nine cans of soda isn't that many, but the thing is only a foot square so it doesn't take up a lot of room either. You kn... / Continue →

    This is the 6-foot, 20,000-brick LEGO Bender sculpture created by LEGOmaniac Adrian Drake. His stomach door opens to reveal space for several bottles of booze inside. Would you drink something that came from the stomach of a robot? I think I would. I mean, just as long as i... / Continue →

    This is the Bibliochaise from Nobody & Co. It's a chair that can hold up to 300 books or even more nudey magazines. You have to email them for the price though which means it's gonna be ungodly expensive. Anybody here a carpenter? "I am." YES -- please tell me your name is... / Continue →

    This is the Death Star cookie jar available from Firebox (and probably other places) for $56 (previously: just a concept). It's perfect for the person with a Star Wars themed kitchen. Don't have a Star Wars themed kitchen? It's never too late to start. Those cookies in th... / Continue →

    This is the $1,050 DNA Bookcase made by Milano Furniture. It's six feet of spiraling shelves shaped like a double helix so you can arrange your books to look like little genome sequences. No lie, I have a friend who used to be a personal assistant for this rich lady and one d... / Continue →

    So, what do you wanna do tonight? We can watch the TV or my jackets and shoes. This is the Living Cube designed by Till Könneker. It's not actually alive though. It's FOR living, not living itself. Although I suppose the wood was alive once. Now it's dead. Tree bones. I... / Continue →

    Pocketbands are rubber bracelets with a small hidden pocket on the inside for storing money, keys, and drugs. They're currently a Kickstarter campaign created by Devin Eisner but have already been funded and the bracelets will go into production this month. Granted they're no ... / Continue →

    This is the Good Vibrations cabinet designed by Ferruccio Laviani. It's a real, impressively hand-carved storage unit created to look like a glitched tv or computer screen. It hurts my eyes, and not in a good way like rubbing them really hard when I'm stressed. This is defin... / Continue →

    This is the Handlebar Minibar (links to Kickstarter page) by Yannick Reading (of attaching a train horn to a bike fame). Basically you cut the ends of your existing grips off the handlebars, then stuff these little plugs in. Unfortunately, each bottle only holds 5ml, so even ... / Continue →

    This is the $2,060 Eastpak Sofa. It's a little sofa made out of backpack fabric that has a bunch of pockets for all your stuff. Like so many other things, I half want it and half think it's stupidest thing ever made. I would like it more if all the compartments were detachab... / 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 →

    Want to make your own Zelda treasure chest complete with 'opening' sound effect? Well now you can, provided you're still in your parents' good graces and one of them agrees to supervise so you don't wind up supergluing your genitals to a kitchen stool again. A list of supplie... / Continue →

    We've already seen ninja-star and joystick coathooks, so why not $15 knife coathooks? Yes, why not knives? "Because they promote violence?" Um, no, stop being stupid. I'm not even allowed near safety-scissors and I'm still one of the most violent people I know. Seriously, ... / Continue →
