Cowabunga! Ninja Turtles Hoodies are Awesome

Ninja Turtles Hoodie0

The hare was always cooler than the turtle…until the teenage mutant ninja turtles came along, that is. If you’ve got TMNT fever and haven’t gotten over Michael Bay’s recent reboot, then here’s something you might want to add to your wardrobe: the Ninja Turtles hoodie that gives you your very own shell…or, well, lets you wear one anyway.

The best part is the hood with the mask fleece appliques. Since the mask is red, you’ll be dressing up as Raph.Continue Reading

TUL Suitcase Lets You Know How Heavy Your Stuff Is as You Pack

TUL Suitcase

 

Pack light if you can, bring a portable luggage scale when you can’t. Buying extra baggage allowance in advance costs way less than adding some extra kgs at the check-in counter. If you can’t be bothered to bring a portable scale (or keep forgetting), then the TUL Suitcase is a worthwhile and smart alternative to consider.

The TUL Suitcase has a built-in weighing scale, with a display by the zipper showing you the current weight of the stuff that’s in it. The suitcase doesn’t have to be upright or closed to work, so you can check the weight as you pack–convenient and fuss-free, just the way it should be.

It’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of AU$229 (about $205) will get you one of your very own.

Everybody Was Sumo Wrestling: Sumo Suits

Sumo Suits

Sumo wrestling ain’t sumo without the extra padding. And by padding, we mean all that extra weight (fat, muscle, and everything in between) on your body. The closest thing you can get to sumo wrestling is by donning this Sumo Suit and going at your opponent like there’s no tomorrow. Granted, you won’t be able to crush your opponent under your weight– I mean, it’s just a suit with lots of padding, for crying out loud– but the extra bulk will let you move and simulate the motions of an actual sumo wrestler.

At least, in theory. It’s available for $1,600 (or you could just, you know, buy a lot of Big Macs with the money and gain that extra weight for real.)

Oru is a Smartwatch That Can Charge Your Phone, Too

Oru smartwatch

Of all the smartwatches on the market, Oru seems to be one of the smartest. So it hasn’t exactly hit the shelves yet, since it’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, but the features that it comes with makes it a top contender for the title. The Oru is the first ever smartwatch that comes with a dual display: a full-color hi-res TFT touch screen and a low energy E-paper display so it can stay on 24/7 without draining the battery. Flipping from one display to the other is easy as pie, since all you’ll have to do is pull the watch crown and rotate.

The Oru runs on both Android and iOS and is powered by an 800 MHz single core processor with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of storage. Speaking of batteries, did we mention that the smartwatch also comes with a built-in power bank so you can charge your other mobile devices on the go?

World’s First Gold-Plated iPhone 6 is Now Up For Grabs

iPhone 6 Gold

The most blinged-out phone in the market has to be the iPhone. Those with money to burn have commissioned custom iPhones time and time again, adding jewels and crystals and even coating it in precious metals. The iPhone 6 is no exception, as a gold-plated custom version of the phone is now on sale.

Gold & Co., is offering a 24-karat version of the newly-released iPhone 6, and word on the street is that big-name celebrities, athletes (including Floyd Mayweather Jr.), and royalty (some UAE royal family members) are interested in owning one. The basic gold-plated version is priced at $50,000, while the bejeweled ones can go up at $130,000.

All that for a phone with an upgraded version coming in a few quarters or so? Whoa!

Can of Potato Chip Coasters: Yummiest Coasters Ever

Can of Potato Chip Coasters

Go for prevention instead of the cure. Not that water rings are a disease, but they eventually become a pain to clean up once you’ve left them on your coffee table long enough. Prevention has always been to grab a coaster and set it down onto the table before you put your glass down. It’s natural for people to forget (or be too lazy to get up and get one from the kitchen), so the solution comes in this little can.

It’s the coaster of Wavy Chips, and you’ll find a stack of coasters instead of potato chips inside this little canister. Go get your Pringles elsewhere because this can holds nothing but coasters. The quirky packaging lets you leave it right on the table, so it’s within reach anytime anyone needs one.

A can of four wavy chips coasters is priced at $12.99.

Mini Garage Houses Your Keychain, Holds Your Car Keys

Mini Garage Car Keys

Park your car in this! Well, the miniature car on your keychain, that is, because there’s no way your jeep will fit into this mini garage rack by Cairo. It was made for one purpose and one purpose only: to house the fancy vintage car keychain that it’s sold with, with your car keys hanging on the key ring on the other end.

Choose from a Porsche, Karmann Ghia, Jaguar E-Type, VW bus, or a VW Beetle– in short, cars you’d love to own within your lifetime.

Nintendo to Debut 3DS XL That Looks Like a NES Controller

Nintendo 3DS XL NES

A Nintendo 3DS XL that sports the classic look of the NES controller? Yes, please! This isn’t the first time Nintendo has released special edition designs for their 3DS portable gaming consoles, but it’s the first to feature a design of another console instead of a classic character, like Mario or Zelda. The box it comes in brings another bout of nostalgia since it was designed to look like the NES console.

The limited edition 3DS XL will be released with two other designs: the Super Smash Bros 3D XLs (which will come in red and blue) and the Persona Q.
