Scrubba Wash Bag: For Last Minute Laundry, On the Go

Scrubba Wash Bag

There are two types of people in this world among the many different classifications: those who underpack, and those who overpack. Of course, sometimes you get it right once in a while and pack just enough, but it’s often one or the other. For those who belong to the former, there’s the Scrubba wash bag.

The Scrubba looks like a plain bag on the outside, but it’s packed with row upon row of nodules on the inside that function as an internal washboard. All you have to do is fill it up with water, detergent, and your dirty clothes and rub the Scrubba this way and that for 30 seconds to 3 minutes.

Unload and hang your stuff to dry, and you’ll have a fresh change of clothes in no time. The Scrubba is available online for $55.

Penball Erasers Let You Have an Impromptu Game of Foosball

Penball, Soccer Player Erasers1 .

Erasers don’t get any funner than this. You probably don’t need an eraser at this point in time, but you might still want to get them anyway because they’re more than just erasers. You can think of them as attachments that turn plain old pencils into (partial) rods that you can use to play an impromptu foosball match.

It’s nothing like the real thing, obviously, but it provides some fun where there used to be none.

Because, Bacon: Bacon Scented T-Shirt

Bacon Scented T-Shirt

 

This is the official shirt from the United Kingdom of Bacon, and the awesome part is that it smells just like the real thing. It’s all thanks to the special scented ink they used when the design was screen-printed, which treats people who are as far as six feet away with the delightful scent of everyone’s favorite breakfast meat.

The scent only lasts for up to 20 washes, but hey, it’s great while it lasts. Plus the design is a classic. The shirt is available online for $28.

Need to Get Someone’s Opinion? Get the ‘Ethan’ App and Ask Ethan!

Ethan app

There are just some things you just can’t ask Siri–and for that, you’ve got Ethan. Think of him as the friend you never had, only cooler, because he created this awesome app (which he aptly named after himself) that lets anyone get in touch with him, anytime, anywhere. Ethan Gliechtenstein originally made the app so his friends could send him a message, but when random people downloaded the app and sent him a message, well, he didn’t disappoint.

But then random people started downloading and I became sort of a virtual assistant at one point, finding music for romantic dinner or animes with dragons for them. Sometimes it’s hard because they keep asking me questions while i’m sleeping. That’s why I added the rules on the home page.

I downloaded Ethan and sent him a few messages, just for curiosity’s sake, and got a couple of responses faster than I expected. You can get the app for free from the iTunes app store.

For Dramatic Exits: Breakaway Sheet Glass

Breakaway Sheet Glass

 

You’ve seen it done in movies and on television shows. Now you can do the same in your very own home.

We’re talking about jumping through a glass wall and emerging relatively unscathed, much to shock and awe of whoever is in the room when you decide to do your little stunt. The breakaway sheet glass looks and breaks just like real glass. It’s not exactly cheap, so you might want to save breaking it for a truly special occasion.

It’s available from Thomax Fx for $53.

‘Refold’ is a Portable Cardboard Standing Desk

Refold Standing Desk

 

Standing desks are all the rage these days. There are a number of purported health benefits to working while standing up, although they come with several risks and warnings too. At the end of the day, it all boils down to preference. If portability and cost are high up on your list, then you might want to get Refold.

It’s a foldable standing desk made from cardboard components, which makes it light enough to be assembled, disassembled, and transported by a single person. And since it’s made from cardboard, it’s 100% recyclable. Just don’t get it wet, and you should be fine.

Refold is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $115 will get you one of your very own.

Yovo Photo-Sharing App Messes Up Screenshots to Protect Your Pics

Yovo App

So a lot of snaps that were taken and sent using Snapchat were leaked recently. I, for one, am a firm believer that if you need to have an image deleted mere moments after you’ve taken it, then you probably shouldn’t be taking that picture in the first place. Scores of people disagree, so if you’re looking for an alternative to Snapchat, then you should check out Yovo.

It’s an image sharing app created by ContentGuard and it uses a simple but ingenious way to keep your images private. All pictures taken using the app have a blurred grill overlay added to it, which isn’t apparent when you’re checking out the picture. However, it effectively ruins (or rather, blocks) the image when the recipient tries to take a screenshot.

Chestburster Drive Thru Prank: Would You Like a Side of ‘Alien’ With That?

One of the scariest elements of the Alien franchise has got to be the chestbursters. Even the mere thought of having an alien creature growing and feeding inside you before bursting out of your chest, causing excruciating pain is hair-raising. This holds true, even if you haven’t watched any of the movies, and prankster Rahat is well-aware of this.

That’s probably why he chose to do the alien chestburster prank on unsuspecting drive-thru workers. (On a side note, he’s done a lot of these drive-thru pranks so it’s only a matter of time before they wise up to Rahat’s ways, right?) Check out the reaction that his prank elicits from the drive-thru people, some of them are just priceless!
