I Think I’ll Pass: Zombie Booze Brewed With Actual Brains

Zombie Beer

As much as I love the Walking Dead and everything else inspired and associated with it, I’m not too keen on Dock Street Brewing’s Walker beer. It’s an American pale stout that was made in honor of the show’s season finale, and in keeping with the comic book-turned-television show’s theme, it’s brewed with smoked goat brains.

Dock Street Walker gets its blood red hue thanks to organic cranberries and not the brains, so that should set your mind at ease–even just a little bit. The beer is 7.2% alcohol by volume and will be released at Dock Street Brewing Co. on March 30. You might want to drop by if you happen to be in the area.

Rockin’ Bricks: 20 Famous Bands Recreated In LEGO

LEGO Bands

What you can make with LEGO bricks is limitless, especially if you’re creative and have the ability to envision while you put them together, brick by brick. These are qualities that LEGO builder extraordinaire Adly Syairi Ramly doesn’t have a shortage of, which his latest work clearly shows.

Adly has recently unveiled a gallery of twenty iconic bands recreated using nothing but LEGO bricks, including the likes of the Beastie Boys, Beatles, Smashing Pumpkins, and Foo Fighters.Continue Reading

Small Mic, Big Voice: Micro Karaoke Player

Micro Karaoke

You’re no Bruno Mars but you’re no William Hung either. But like the two, you have a passion for music and love to sing. If you can’t wait until you get home before belting out a few choice lines from your favorite song, then here’s something you’ll no doubt enjoy having: the Micro Karaoke Player. As the name suggests, it’s a handy karaoke player that’s small enough to fit into your bag or pocket.

Okay, so it’s essentially just a mini microphone that comes with echo features, but it’s the closest to on-the-go karaoke that you can get. The Micro Karaoke Player is meant to be connected to your music player and you can hook up earphones or speakers for the output.

From the earphones attached to the “mini karaoke”, you can hear a combination of the music from the music player and your own voice complete with echo through the microphone. It is as if you are singing the song you love at your favorite karaoke bar. 

Just make sure you have the songs pre-loaded onto your mobile device or music player. The Micro Karaoke Player is available for $38.90.

Make It Real: Doctor Who LEGO Set

Doctor Who LEGO

It’s surprising how something–or rather, someone–as popular as Doctor Who still doesn’t have a LEGO set to call his own. That might soon change if the set created by Andrew Clark gets enough votes on the LEGO Cuuso website. It’s currently has about 8,600 supporters, which is short of the 10,000 required before LEGO reviews the design and gives the decision on whether or not they’ll make the set into a reality.

Andrew’s Doctor Who set features all the well-known elements from the hit show, including the Doctor (of course!), his sonic screwdriver, and TARDIS.

Halfbike is Essentially a Pedal-Powered Segway

Halfbike

 

Want to ride a bike without actually, well, riding one? Sounds impossible but that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do with the Halfbike. As the name implies, it’s an alternative mode of transportation that’s inspired by the bike–or at least, half of it. It’s basically a pedal-powered Segway of sorts that comes with a single brake and a handlebar that looks like a gigantic joystick.

It was created by Kolelinia, who explains: “Halfbike is great for commuting and transforms it from a monotonous task into a vibrant part of our everyday life. It is suitable for short distances and in conjunction with public transport could be taken on board for longer trips. Halfbike is compact enough for an elevator, light enough to carry it on stairs and fits into spaces too small for a normal bike.”

The winning point has to be the one about portability for me, although you might want to go for a regular bike or a car, even, if you’re going someplace far. The Halfbike is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $899 will get you one of your very own.

Commute Case Folds Open and Transforms Into a Scooter

Commute Case

The Commute-Case looks like something you’d see on the Jetsons with its sleek and futuristic design. While it looks like some strange contraption to be used to wheel your briefcase around, it’s actually much more than that. It’s a compact electric scooter that folds into a briefcase or trolley when it’s not in use.

When you’re ready to go, just fold it open and scoot along. The Commute-Case weighs 27 pounds with a weight capacity of 275 pounds. It has a top speed of 12.5mph and boasts of a 25-mile range. Like most scooters, it’s weatherproof and comes with a manual handbrake.

Look Closer: This Parrot is Actually a Woman

Bodypainted Parrot Lady

 

Not everything is at it seems. The title of this post isn’t meant to fool you, but unless you’ve got a really sharp eye, then you probably think you’ve been had because the picture is clearly that of a bird, not a woman–or is it?

It honestly took me a few minutes and several double-takes before I saw her. It’s so seamless that it’s easy to un-see even when you’ve already seen her. This work of impressive body painting art was done by artist Johannes Stoette, who’s eye for detail is truly something else. If you still haven’t spotted her, here’s a hint: check out the parrot’s tail first.
