Fuel Emergency Charger Gives Your Phone Some Extra Power When You Need It the Most

Fuel Charger

There are a number of portable phone chargers currently available, but most of these are bulky and are pretty much a hassle to carry around–especially if you’re a guy (who doesn’t carry a bag) or a girl (who doesn’t carry a purse).

And then came the Fuel emergency charger. It’s creators claim that it’s ‘the world’s smallest cell phone charger’, and they might just be right. It’s the same size as your typical keyring–it measures 1.3 by 0.9 by half an inch–but don’t let it’s compact size fool you.

Stinky Footboard: Now You Can Play Games on Your PC With Your Foot

Foot Controller

Gaming is about to be revolutionized with the coming of the Oculus Rift and controllers that won’t require you to use your hands when you play anymore. One of these is the Stinky Footboard, which was recently unveiled at PAX East 2013 in Boston. It was designed by Stelulu Technologies’ Stephane Rivard and Luc Levasseur, and it’s aptly but unfortunately called ‘Stinky’ for short.

The Stinky is basically a very sturdy metal D-pad that lets you play your games with your foot.

Puzzle Keyboard: Rearrange Your Keyboard However Way You Want To

Puzzle Keyboard

If you haven’t gotten used to your keyboard’s configuration by this time, then I doubt you ever will. It’s in cases like these where concepts like the Puzzle Keyboard will come in handy. It’s basically a modular keyboard that lets you arrange letters and characters based on your personal preferences. If you’d like ‘M’ to take the place of your ‘A’, then all you have to do is switch the keys over and snap them back into place.

With the Puzzle Keyboard, everyone and anyone can modify and customize their keyboard based on their typing habits.

Rice Krispy Treats Zombie Wants You to.. Eat Its Jello Brains?

Zombie Rice Krispies Cake

Do zombies have brains? I used to think that they didn’t, considering the fact that they move like unthinking beings. At least, that’s what they do on The Walking Dead anyway. Note that I said I ‘used to’, because if this edible bust of a zombie is to be believed, then it means that the undead are walking around with a brain in their not-so-thick-skulls–a brain made of Jello.

Obviously, I only mean this extremely awesome-but-gruesome zombie cake that was made by the Artisan Cake Company using Rice Krispy Treats, fondant, petal dust, and a whole lot of food coloring.

The Cake Hotel: A Sweet Escape for One Night Only

Cake Hotel

Hansel and Gretel’s gingerbread house has got nothing on the Cake Hotel. For one, the witch-made house in their story obviously can’t hold up to harsh outdoor conditions. It has pretty crappy interiors, too, considering the fact that it was pretty bare except for a huge oven (or cauldron–depending on which version of the story you’re reading) where the kids were supposed to be cooked in.

On the other hand, the Cake Hotel put up by refinery Tate and Lyle Sugars is all about comfort and luxury. The lush room was decorated with elaborate and edible trimmings and furnishings, with vanilla sponge cushions propped up on the bed and a hand-stitched meringue rug that you’re supposed to chew on, now walk on.

Muzzle Suppressor Shaped Shot Glasses Are For The Hardcore Drinker

Muzzleshot Shot Glass

You can take your shots in those chintzy Mariachi glasses your friends brought you back from their Mexico vacation. Or, you can bust out the heavy artillery and have some drinks in the above Muzzleshots. Machined out of a solid block of aluminum, the glasses are shaped like an M16′s A2 flash suppressor, and are then Mil-spec anodized for a army matte finish. They’re virtually indestructible, and will definitely look pretty badass next time you bust them out at a poker game or something. Each 1.5oz. glass is $35, but if you want four of them in a custom-desgned Pelican case, it’s going to cost you $200.

V12 Inspired Espresso Veloce For Gearhead Coffee Lovers

v12-espresso-machine

Not much is known about the above machine, the Espresso Veloce. It looks like a tiny V12 engine, but it makes coffee of a quality that we can only assume is superior. It’s made from premium materials like titanium, magnesium, and aluminum, and is limited in production to just 500 units. This means it’s likely in the same price range as the kinds of cars that sport V12 engines. It does seem to come with some nifty piston-shaped mugs, though that’s pretty much all we can tell you about it.

Tongue2Teeth Mouth Accessory Lets You Clean Your Teeth With Your Tongue

Tongue-Toothbrush

Ever run your tongue over your teeth after not brushing them for a day? It’s pretty gross. But what if instead of grossing yourself out, you could clean them, discreetly, while doing just that? The Tongue2Teeth hygiene product is a tooth cleaning product that slips over part of your tongue, and allows you to get at least somewhat clean while on the go. The product has a coating that kills bacteria, as well as freshens your breath and whitens your teeth. The bristles presumably do a little mechanical abrasion to remove some of the harder deposits as well, though we really think you shouldn’t use this as a replacement for a full toothbrush.

There’s no word on pricing or availability, but you can sign up on their website to be notified of when they’ll be on shelves.
