Never-Ending Birthday Card Goes On and On and On

Never Ending Birthday Card

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is the card you should give to frenemies, friends, and family who you want to annoy the crap out of– but while still being endearing– at the same time. The card starts playing as soon as its opened, and as its name suggests, it won’t stop until it runs out of juice. That’s an estimated 3 hours of playing time, which should be enough to drive most people bonkers.

The best part? There’s no way to stop it, because it will keep on playing even if you tear, submerge, or burn the card. How’s that for dedication?

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is available for £9.99 (~$16.)

The SkySaver Backpack Is Your Lifeline Out Of A Burning Building

screenshot_211-620x442

We can’t imagine too many people think daily about what they’ll do if they ever have the misfortune of being caught in a burning building. It’s a terrifying thought, and we understandably don’t spend our waking hours thinking about all the horrible things that could happen to us. Still, if you’ve ever experienced this nightmare, or worry about it more than others, know that there may now be a product that can save you in such situations. The SkySaver backpack contains everything one would need to rappel down a building, in the scary case that the fire department is unable to get to you. There’s a body harness, a window anchor bolt (which needs to be pre-installed), and a special winch that will lower you no faster than 6.5 feet per second. It’s still fast, but not terribly so; you’re going to want to get out of Dodge quickly anyway, so don’t fret. Backpacks come in 80, 160, and 260 feet lengths, so you’ll want to get one that’s appropriate for the floor you live/work on. Costing $750, $800, and $850 respectively, they’ll be “available soon.”

Would You Ever Use A Portable, Inflatable Bathtub?

inflatable-bathtub

File this under novelty items, but it’s interesting nonetheless. The Inflatable Bath Tub for adults is exactly what it sounds like: a bathtub that you fill up with air, and can use “anywhere”. It comes with its own air pump, and when deployed, will fit a person up to 6’5″ and 280 lbs. Of course, you’ll have the issue of figuring out how you’re going to fill it with water, and then drain it afterwards. Although it comes with a 4 foot accordion drain hose, we imagine that setting up an inflatable bath tub on your fifth floor apartment poses more challenges than most people imagine. Still, if you like to live dangerously, you can own one for $179. And unlike the girl in the picture, it’s totally ok to get in with your clothes off.

This Giant Free-Form 3D Printer Can Print Houses

branch-3d-printing

The good folks at Branch Technology, a startup founded by architects in Chattanooga, Tennessee, are developing technology that would allow architects and constructors much more freedom in the kind of buildings they erect. Using a repurposed automotive manufacturing robot made by Kuka, the Branch team developed a giant free-form 3D printer that extrudes a mix of plastic and carbon fiber. This is used to create a 3D lattice which is then reinforced with denser, stronger materials like concrete, eventually becoming a solid structure. The idea being that walls of pretty much any shape can be pre-built this way, and sent in scaffolding form to the construction site. Once there, construction workers assemble them and fill them with stronger materials, turning a fanciful curved wall into a permanent structural element. Each modular element fits together with the others like LEGO, making it possible for a project manager to simply send a digital file to Branch, only to later receive a completed framework for their building, ready for solidification and assembly.

Currently, Branch’s facilities allow for the production of up to 20 homes a year, with plans to expand as demand increases. Branch founder and CEO Platt Boyd says “We want to be the Shapeways of architecture.” They certainly seem to be off on a good start for that.
