Taco Bell’s New App Lets You Order Food, Skip The Line

tacobelllead

It’s lunchtime and your bowels are seriously hankering for a beating? No better way to go about it than to stuff your face with some tasty Taco Bell. But hey, that long line just to place an order? Ain’t nobody got time for that, so Taco Bell’s just released an new iOS and Android app that not only lets you place your order before you even reach the restaurant, but also customize each item to your liking and pay from your phone. The company won’t actually make the food until you reach your closest location in order to safeguard its “freshness”, but at least you won’t have to wait an hour while hungry patrons stare at the menu while making their minds up; there will be dedicated mobile pickup lines, separate from the regular lines. Interestingly, the app uses your location to determine when to prompt you to confirm you’re ready to have your food prepared. When you accept the prompt, the order is sent directly to the kitchen and your name will be called when it’s ready.

Illumibowl Lights Up Your Toilet Bowl

It’t the middle of the night and you have to pee. You get to the restroom, then are faced with a choice. Pee in the dark and risk missing your target, or turn the lights on and blind yourself for a couple of minutes. If only there were other options. There are, my friend, there are, and the Illumibowl is the latest. It’s a combination motion detector and bright LED that turns on as soon as you walk into the restroom. It simply clips to the side of the commode, so requires no installation or fussing about. It’ll cycle through some colors while you’re there, and then turn itself off after a minute if it senses no motion. Best of all, it’s super cheap, costing only a $15 pledge to get yours by January, and that’s including shipping.

It’s stuffed with Oscar Meyer bacon bits It’s only available in a few select stores in the US right now, but will be expanding soon. Apparently it goes really well stuffed into a French Toast.
