Regardless, it does make for a pretty awesome decorative piece, doesn’t it?

Strange, But It Just Might Work: Portable Folding Napkin Table

Foldable Napkin Table

 

Picnics are fun, but it’s hard to eat a decent meal without a table. That’s why most people pack finger food and sandwiches in their baskets instead to prevent any potential mess. A concept by Michael Jan, who’s an industrial design graduate from Taiwan’s Tunghai University, might soon change all that though.

Michael came up with this portable folding napkin table that’s essentially a cross between, well, a napkin and a table. Both ends are meant to be worn by people who are sitting opposite one another. The table-slash-napkin has slots for bowls and cups so you can have a proper meal without the fuss.Continue Reading

Five O’Clock Wall Clock: Because It’s the Best Time of the Day

5 Oclock Wall Clock

 

Five o’clock. It’s the time of day that you look forward to the most, each and every single weekday. And on weekends if you’ve got work on those days, too. It’s ironic how time seems to crawl by so slowly when you’re at work or doing some mundane chore or errand that you couldn’t get out of.

If you feel like that most of the time, then you might want to get one of these Five O’clock wall clocks. As you can see, it only has the number five printed on its face. All you have to do is glance over quickly to check how far or how close the hour hand is to five with no other numbers to distract you.

You can get the clock for $100.

OhGizmo! Review: The Ascent Vaporizer By DaVinci

davinci-ascent-burl-wood-all

The good folks at VaporNation sent us the Ascent vaporizer from DaVinci to review, and we’ve been spending the last week or so putting it through its paces. The Ascent is a portable unit with all glass tubing and a ceramic heating element that supposedly provides better tasting vapour. It also boasts a massive battery which is supposed to let you go long periods between charges. Its main claim to fame, however, is its ability to vaporize both dry herbs and oil concentrates. It’s a premium device, with a premium price. But does it live up to its claims?

Yes. It does. And we’d like to spend a few minutes telling you all about it.

‘Living Dead’ Costume Looks Like Something an Actual Zombie Would Wear

Living Dead Costume

Halloween is still a few months away, but it’s never too early to buy a costume, especially if it’s as awesome as this one.

You’ll probably be one of thousands of people who’ll be dressing up as zombies yet again, but get this Living Dead costume by DCATX and you’re guaranteed to look the most dead and zombiefied of the bunch.

The costume includes the suit coat, inner long-sleeved shirt, tie, trousers, and the dress shoes. Each article of clothing is in various stages of decay, with a generous smattering of bloodstains and rips all over for added effect.
