Now That’s Discreet: Clifton Slim Engagement Ring Case

Clifton Slim Engagement Ring Case

 

Ready to pop the question? What you’re about to do might be painfully obvious if you’ve got a huge bulge in your pocket while you’re having a fancy dinner or romantic date with your significant other. An alternative is the Clifton Slim engagement ring case–and when they say “slim,” they mean it.

The credit card-sized case folds to a profile of about a centimeter thick, so it’s sleek and discreet. When you open it, the ring pops out of the seemingly flat case, bringing the element of surprise back into proposals.

Even if you don’t have any intentions of proposing or are done with it, the case can still come in handy when you’re traveling or headed somewhere and need to stash your ring for one reason or another.

The case is available online for $100.

Scribble Pen: So Is It Too Good to Be True?

Scribble Pen Video Inconsistency

Scribble took the internet by storm when it was announced back in May. Artists, geeks, and tech enthusiasts, yours truly included, were blown away at the premise of having a pen and stylus that could copy and paste colors from actual objects. All you would have to do is point the built-in scanner to any object, and the Scribble would replicate its color and let you draw on a tablet or phone or on paper, depending on which type you had.

The project launched on Kickstarter last August 11th and surpassed its target goal in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there.Continue Reading

Sleep In a Pool.. Well, Sort Of, With Snurk’s Pool Bedding

Snurk Pool Bedding

Fancy sleeping on a pool? Not in a pool or on a water bed, but on a pool? Now you can, although it isn’t exactly an actual pool with Snurk’s pool bedding. The duvet cover set features a photographic print on both sides of the bottom of a pool. The water looks inviting and oh-so-refreshing. It’s definitely a welcome sight after all these too-warm and humid days we’ve been having lately (or in my part of the world, anyway.)

The set includes pillow cases so you can sink into a deep slumber and drown in sweet dreams. The Swimming Pool-themed beddings are available for €59.95 (about $79.)

Kickball Ice Cream Maker: I Kick for Ice Cream

Kickball Ice Cream Maker

 

 

Kicking a ball is lots of fun, and ice cream is always a welcome treat. I think it’s safe to say that something that combines both is destined to become a huge hit, like the Kickball Ice Cream Maker. The name is pretty much self explanatory. Just pour in cream, sugar, vanilla, and your flavoring of choice into the ball’s food-safe sealed compartment. Fill the space outside of that compartment with ice and rock salt, seal it up, and start kicking the ball around.

Twenty minutes of play will give you one pint of delicious ice cream to enjoy. Not bad, considering everyone had a ton of fun while making the icy treat.

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is available online for $35.

Eyeball Bowling Ball: All Eyes on the Pins

Eyeball Bowling Ball

 

So you probably shouldn’t get this particular bowling ball if you don’t want all eyes in the bowling alley on you. The Eyeball bowling ball is unusual, even grotesque, and it’ll make some people lose their lunch, what with the veins and red stuff behind the cornea and all. But if you’re the king of pins and don’t mind the attention that using this ball will get you, then by all means, get it and give it your best shot.

The Eyeball bowling ball is available online for $140.
