Handicorn is a Unicorn Finger Puppet

Handicorn

 

Unicorns are what little girls’ (and some little boys’) dreams are made of. If you’re bored and happen to have six bucks lying around, then you might want to blow it spent it on the Handicorn. It’s a clever play on words, but it’s basically a teeny tiny finger puppet unicorn. Just insert all parts–er, legs–on four of your digits, and put the head on your middle finger, and you’re ready to go finger-corning.

Need it? No. Want it? Yes. The Handicorn is available online for $6.

Deal Of The Day: X8+ Premier Power Drone

X8+ Premier Power Drone

 

Drones let you record imagery and capture the world that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to from the ground. A good option to consider when you’re just starting out with drones is the X8+ Premier Power Drone. It’s a powerful, ready-to-fly and Follow-Me compatible drone that you can use for photography, for art projects, and even for delivering small precious cargo.

The X8+ has an expandable platform to carry goods to be delivered or your GoPro. While it can carry up to 1 kg, heavier loads will slow the drone down, so you might want to think twice before loading it up to the max. The X8+  stores flight data so you can generate point clouds for precision surveying and fully-automated flight control makes it easy to fly.

The X8+ is available for $1,300.

Anti-Paparazzi Collection Makes You Unphotographable

Anti-Paparazzi Collection

You might not be as popular or sought after by paparazzi, but you’ll find the Anti-Paparazzi amusing, if not relevant, if you value your privacy. The collection currently includes a blazer, scarf, and hooded jacket, but creator Chris Holmes might add more types of clothing depending on the need or demand for it.

Basically, the clothing line uses reflective thread so it reflects light back from cameras, effectively ruining the photo in the process. Whether it’s a digital camera or a phone camera, these threads have got you covered.

Bulletproof Baseball Hat: Protects You From Bullets, Not Balls

Bulletsafe

Protect your noggin but look hip while you’re at it with BulletSafe. As its name implies, this baseball cap keeps you safe from bullets. The rest of your face is still exposed, but it protects the back of your head– or at least half of it, anyway. What BulletSafe gives you that other bulletproof gear for your head is discretion, as the embedded ballistic panel is virtually undetectable. And since it looks like a typical baseball cap, would-be assailants will be none the wiser.

Bulletsafe is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $99 will get you one of your very own.
