TMNT Trailer Gives Rise to the Michaelangelo Meme

TMNT Meme

Michael Bay is at the helm of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie reboot and he’s caused a lot of buzz with the direction that he’s chosen to go with the franchise. Some die-hard fans were ticked off at Bay’s need to tweak the turtles’ origins, but they didn’t have difficulty finding humor in their appearance. Specifically, that of Michaelangelo.

The first trailer for TNMT was released recently and what stood out the most to some was Michaelangelo’s odd appearance. Mainly, the fact that he looks like a cross between Shrek and Lizard from the Amazing Spider-Man. This gave rise to a new meme that has since taken off: the Michaelangelo. Hit the break to check out more!

Pot O’ Green Gold: Luck O’ the Irish Green Hot Chocolate

Green Hot Chocolate

 

St. Patty’s day has come and gone, but if you’re still nursing a hangover–whether it’s from last night’s party or from St. Patty’s (whoa, just how much did you drink?)–then this little pot o’ green right here is just what you need. It’s Luck O’ the Irish hot chocolate and it’s colored green instead of the usual chocolate brown, perhaps to match the color of your face or the strange hue of your puke from the night before.

Luck O’ the Irish Green Hot Chocolate is housed in a reusable tin pot. Just add a couple heaping tablespoons to a mug, add hot water, and enjoy. It retails for $12.99.

B-Shoes Are For the Clumsy: Smart Fall Prevention Shoes

B-Shoe

If you’ve got two left feet and trip over stuff a lot, then you might need to trade in your Chucks for this pair of shoes. These B-Shoes are uniquely-designed footwear with an integrated fall prevention system to make sure that you stay upright–at least while you’re wearing them, anyway.

Kidding aside, the B-Shoes were made especially for older folks who are prone to spills due to their age and perhaps slower reflexes. The shoes aren’t called smart for nothing, as they prevent falls by kicking into action when they detect that the wearer has lost his balance and is about to fall backwards.

Screw It…With a Wink and a Smile

Screw Smile

Sometimes, even the smallest of details make all the difference. Take these screws that are aptly called the Screw:), for example. They look just like your average screw except for the head, which has a smiley face imprinted right on it. That means conventional screwdrivers won’t work with it either, because you can’t exactly jam it into the smiley face’s eye to screw it in. Instead, you’ll need a custom screwdriver with a protruding smiley face to be able to screw the Screw:) in tightly.

The Screw:) was designed by Studio Yumakano in collaboration with Japan-based screw factory Komuro Manufacturing.Continue Reading

TravelCard Smartphone Charger Fits In Your Wallet

TravelCard Charger0

 

There are many credit card-shaped charger adapters out there, but no actual chargers that fit right into your wallet–until now, that is. The TravelCard is slightly thicker than your average credit card and it holds up to five hours of extra talk time, 4.5 hours of Internet use, or 98 hours of standby time. That’s pretty impressive considering its compact size.

Using it is as simple as 1-2-3: just fish it out of your wallet, plug it into your phone’s hub, and you’re good to go. It comes built with either an integrated Lightning or Micro USB charging cable, so it’s compatible with most iOS and Android devices.Continue Reading

Brick By Brick: Build a LEGO Resume, Get a Second Interview

LEGO Resume

The Internet has seen its fair share of unusual and creative resumes that are essentially applications of that person’s skills and qualifications. For example, there was that programmer who turned his resume into an interactive one by creating a website that played like a video game as you scrolled down.

Then there’s this resume by Redditor Leah who made a LEGO set featuring none other than herself. It made perfect sense that she came up with something as creative and far out as this, considering that she was trying to get a job at an advertising agency.

They Don’t Stand a Chance: Pow! Splat! Fly Swatters

Pow Splat Fly Swatter

 

You can go for one of those electric fly swatters to zap those pesky flies and mosquitoes out of your face and into kingdom come–or you can go for these comic-inspired Pow! and Splat! fly swatters. Granted, it’s easier to get that insect, specially the fast flyers, with the tennis racket-shaped electric swatters. But if you’re out of juice and really need to get that thing out of the air, then this will have to do.

The expressions featured on the bubbles are pretty apt for their purpose too: Pow! to hit that bug in order to make it go Splat! Yowza!

The fly swatters are available online for $10.

Endless Calendar Goes On and On and On

Endless Calendar

Endless Calendar1

 

The Endless Calendar is a modular calendar of sorts that you can put on display and use and re-use for the months, years, and decades to come. It’s relatively simple, but it gets the job done. Each of the calendar’s components are printed by hand using wood types, which are then positioned and stored in a display unit that sort of looks like a napkin holder.

It won’t alert you to any meetings or special events, but it’ll let you know the date and what day of the week it is, and that should be more than enough for most people. The best part? No need to replace your calendar on a yearly basis anymore, obviously.

The Endless Calendar is available for $42.

Just Make Sure No One Else Sees: Birdhouse Key Hider

Birdhouse Key Hider

 

Running out of rocks and welcome mats and garden gnomes to stuff your keys under? Maybe it’s time to find a completely different hiding place that most people won’t even think of looking, like somewhere overhead, for example. You can do exactly this with this Hide-a-Key Birdhouse, which is exactly what it’s name implies it is.

It’s an actual birdhouse that has a discrete magnetic trap door underneath where you can hang your keys. So you get to give birds shelter from the elements while hiding your keys in a place where most burglars won’t really think to look at (unless they’ve read this post and recognize that the same birdhouse is hanging in your garden or porch, that is.) Now isn’t that nice?

The Hide-a-Key Birdhouse retails for $20.
