Fish Tea Bags: Truly Fish Out Of Water

Fish Tea Bags

 

Gold fish swimming in the tea that you’re about to drink? Sounds pretty nasty, but these fishy tea bags will make most people wonder why you’re sipping that tea so calmly while a goldfish swims leisurely in your cup…

The company behind these creative tea bags is Taiwan-based Charm Villa. The tea bags look like typical tea bags when they’re out of the water, but submerge it in hot water and watch it transform into the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in a cup. Beauty in tea bags? Now that’s not something you see or hear about everyday.

Game On: Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

I’m sure your mom taught you not to play with your food or goof around at the dining table. But I don’t think she ever said anything about playing with condiments– specially with the salt and pepper shakers– because play is exactly what the folks behind these uber-fun S&P shakers want you to do, seeing as they’re made in the same shape and form as your typical air hockey pusher.

The added bonus? It comes with a puck so you don’t have to use biscuits or frozen slices of ham to play a round or two.

Of Swings and Booze: Bar With a Swingset for Seats Exists

Swingset Bar

 

There’s another way to get dizzy when you’re at the bar, but it doesn’t involve knocking back more shots. Rather, all you need to do is push off the ground– that is, if you happen to be seated on one of the swings that serve as seats on this unusual bar. Instead of the usual stools, it has a number of swings surrounding it. You obviously can’t push off as hard as you like because you’ll probably end up banging your knees (while damaging the bar in the process.)

It’s being sold by Duffy London and comes with a pretty hefty pricetag: $37,465.

Edible Art: Candy Craft Pen Uses Chocolate Ink

Candy Craft Pen

 

The pen you’ve dreamed of having ever since you were a kid is now a reality. Sure, a lot of folks are working on 3D chocolate printers and food printers. Most of them cost an arm and a leg, so if you’re just a typical foodie with a sweet tooth, then the Candy Craft Pen is a worthwhile alternative.

Instead of ink, the pen uses chocolate, so you can “draw” all sorts of sweet and delicious creations and eat ‘em all afterwards.

Deal Of The Day: Power Vault 18000mAh Portable Battery Pack For $29

redesign_1764_PowerVaultBattery_MF1

18,000 mAh is a lot. Consider that your iPhone 6 has a 1,810 mAh battery, so the Power Vault 18000mAh Portable Battery Pack would be able to charge it almost 10 times over before it needs its own top up. That’s a heck of a lot of electricity to carry around in a 6″ × 3″x .4″ package (yes, not even half an inch thick). Better yet, it’s got two USB ports, so you can juice up two devices at once. One of the ports outputs 1A, while the other kicks out 2.1A. And all this in a $29,99 package? It’s practically a steal!

KFC UK To Offer Coffee In An Edible Cup

kfc-scoffee-cup-2

It seems KFC will be offering Seattle’s Best Coffee branded brew in a special drinking vessel soon: edible cups. That’s right, after you’re done sipping on your cup o’ Joe, you can just eat the container it came in. KFC did this by partnering up with

food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

We don’t know for how long the cups are able to keep the liquid in without leaking, but for those of you who like to sip on cold coffee throughout the day (like me), this might be a risky proposition.

The cups are being introduced to mark the launch of KFC’s Seattle’s Best Coffee across its UK branches. They aren’t ready yet, so don’t go running to your local branch just yet; the hope is that they will be by summer.

Umbrella Packs Bluetooth, So You Don’t Leave It Behind

davek-alert-umbrella

Like most people, we like to get cheap umbrellas so that we don’t feel too bad the next time we forget them somewhere. And that happens often enough, so it’s not necessarily being overly cautious. But if we wanted to get an umbrella that isn’t made from cheap materials, and doesn’t turn inside out the second the wind picks up, we’d have to consider the Davek Alert Umbrella. There’s a Bluetooth chip in its base, powered by a watch battery with a life of 1-2 years, which will connect to your phone automatically. Then, once it senses you’re more than 30 feet away, you’ll get a notification alerting you that you might be leaving it behind. Sure, there’s the possibility you’ll get notified if you simply walk to the kitchen after leaving the thing in the entrance lobby, but you can just dismiss it and carry on, we suppose. At $80, the Davek Alert Umbrella isn’t cheap, but you should know it’s made by a company that sells even more expensive umbrellas, and has been doing so for years; presumably their stuff isn’t low quality, and your pledge is safe with them.

Deal Of The Day: Last Chance To Get The Limited-Edition ‘Code Black’ HD-Camera Drone At 55% Off

redesign_redesign_BlackHawk_MF2_1014

This little drone has proved very popular over the last months. And why not? It’s got a 720p camera, as well as 6-axis gyro technology that makes it stable and smooth to fly, for up to 10 minutes at a time on a single charge. The Limited-Edition ‘Code Black’ HD-Camera Drone is palm-sized, does flips in any direction, and comes with two flight modes so that operators of varying skills can enjoy it. The best part is that when it runs out of juice, a 30 minute charge will get it back in the sky.
