Pizza Hut Australia To Launch Meat Pie Stuffed Crust Pie

pizza-hut-meat-pie-1

Over the years we’ve come across some creative offerings from Pizza Hut. You guys remember the Cheeseburger Stuffed Crust Pizza? Or the Hot Dog Crust and Shrimp Tempura Pizza? Yeah, well the latest creation has the company stuffing tiny Meat Pies in the crust. Pizza Hut Australia is partnering up with Four’N Twenty, and they’ve announced this new venture with a series of tongue-in-cheek jealous tweets describing a romance gone wrong, and the birth of a lovechild, the Four’N Twenty Stuffed Crust Pizza. We don’t know how long this will last, nor if it’ll ever be exported to Pizza Huts outside of Australia, but we like the way the company is thinking. Because who hasn’t thought “gee, I’d really like some meat pie with this pizza.”? Amirite?

GravityLight Is Back, Brighter, And More Robust

GravityLight-2-Gravity-powered-LED-Light-Featured-image-672x372

The GravityLight is powered by, well, gravity. You attach it to a strong beam, tie a 12kg weight to it (made from rocks or sand), and let gravity pull it down. As it does, it powers a set of gears inside, which drive a DC generator that produces one-tenth of a Watt. That’s enough to power the LED for up to 25 minutes at a time. When that’s over, just hoist the weight back up and keep going. This is great for developing nations which often rely on Kerosene lamps that are not only polluting, but noxious, and potentially dangerous. The makers of the GravityLight already made one last year, but this new model is brighter, more robust, easier to use, and can provide light even as it is being charged. More importantly perhaps, it is being assembled right in Kenya, which will provide some jobs to the very people it is meant to help. You can get one yourself for a $70 pledge, all the while knowing you’re contributing to a good cause.

SensorWake Alarm Wakes You Up With Nice Scents

sensorwake-1

Typical alarm clocks rely on loud, jarring sounds to wake you up. It’s effective, but it’s also a pretty rough way to get your day started. Guillaume Rolland, an 18-year-old French entrepreneur, thought there was a better way to go about it and created SensorWake. It’s an alarm clock that releases a scent, and in testing is able to wake 99% of people up within 2 minutes. Scents are stored in special replaceable pods, and range in variety from “Continental breakfast: Espresso & Hot Croissant” to “Candy Rush: Sweet peach & Strawberry candy”. If you fail to wake up after 3 minutes, then SensorWake will revert to a backup audible alarm so you don’t miss your important meeting. Each scent pod lasts up to 60 times. You can get in on the action with an $89 pledge, which includes a 2-capsule pack.

Man Adds Distorted Sticker To Selfie Stick, So It Comes Out Looking Normal On The Image

90_skull_v2

We wrote about anamorphic designs before, and you guys were impressed. These types of designs look off and distorted when looked at from most angles, but straighten out when looked at from a specific vantage point; it’s a clever way to make a 2D image appear 3D by using perspective rules. Pablo Garcia set out to use this type of image in his project called Memeto Mori, which he describes like this:

Using principles of anamorphosis, or obliquely distorted perspective, the printed graphics are applied to the selfie stick. The smartphone camera is the only vantage point capable of decoding the image, inserting a graphic into your selfie. Perhaps it’s a sober reminder of your mortality in the midst of your vainglory, or simply a pile of poop with eyes

In plain english, he took some images, stretched them out in a specific way and printed them. He then stuck the printouts on a selfie stick, so that the stretched out print looked like the original image to the phone’s camera. It sounds weird when described, but just look at the GIF, and pics, and you’ll understand.

There is no mention on how to make these, nor whether he even sells them, but how hard can it be to figure it out? Now that you have the idea, it’s just a matter of acquiring a little bit of know-how. The question is: is this worth any more than a passing “huh, neato!”?

Someone 3D Printed A Save Button

boton-guardar-3d

I don’t want to live in this world anymore.

Ok, so maybe it’s a hoax. Maybe it’s real, and some kid just has no idea that the “save button” used to be an actual thing. Whatever the explanation is, one thing is certain: I’m old. If you saw the above and realized this scenario is, sadly, totally possible, then you too are old, my friend.

The “not wanting to live in this world” comment? That’s just age-related depression; it happens at 30, and that’s a fact.

Ok, moving on…

Yes, The Electric Wakeboard Is Happening

Wakejet-Cruise

The thing about electricity-powered vehicles is they have to reach a critical mass, a point at which their use doesn’t involve a dramatic sacrifice of convenience, for consumers to pay attention. Tesla cars, for instance, don’t compromise on range, performance, or safety, and are thus enjoying widespread adoption. Electric wakeboards, however, could have easily been ignored if they didn’t have the kinds of numbers the Radinn Wakejet Cruise has: 25 knot speeds, for 30 minutes, at full speed, with a 1 hour charge. That’s 28.8mph, or about 46.3kph, which is pretty darn fast for a floating board. It accomplishes this with a carbon fiber and kevlar construction, which keeps the weight down to 29kg (63.9lbs), and an electric brushless motor that’s “nearly silent”. You don’t need waves wherever the Radinn Wakejet Cruise goes, but… you do need a heck of a bank account. It’s a $19,375 purchase. Yeah, so, about that critical mass… it sort of goes like this: affordable – good range – fast, pick two.
