For the Person Who Transformed You: Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Bumblebee is one of the most beloved Autobots from the Transformers franchise. He was the one of the first bots that we were introduced to in the first movie. It’s also worth mentioning that he’s been in every one of the movies, and that’s saying something, seeing as how Michael Bay doesn’t think twice about killing off some of the bots to get a point across.

That said, it makes perfect sense to feature Bumblebee on a Transformers-inspired ring–not only for his marketability, but for his bright and aesthetically-pleasing design. That and the fact that he turns into a snazzy Camaro seals the deal for me. The ring features Bumblebee’s playful mug right smack in the middle of an adorable sterling silver and gold-plated band.

It’s available from CustomMade for $299.

Leatherdos: Every Tool a Girl Needs That She Can Wear on Her Hair

Leatherdos Multitool Clip

This might just be the one accessory girls (and dudes with long hair) can’t live without: the Leatherdos. It’s a typical hair clip that can keep bangs and stray hair away from your face. It also happens to be a one-of-a-kind multitool that can do more than what you’d expect to be able to do with a hair accessory.

Designed by industrial design student Yaacov Goldberg, the Leatherdos packs in a wrench, screw driver, ruler, mini saw, and trolley coin. When you need to tighten a screw or measure something, just unclip and use as you please.

Tweet a Coke to Show Loved Ones You Care

Tweet a Coke

 

Sometimes, all a person needs is an ice-cold bottle of Coca-Cola. You don’t have to be close by to hand them their Coke, because all you’ll need is Twitter. The beverage company’s marketing team has upped their social media interactivity by allowing users to send friends, loved ones, and random strangers a bottle of coke…straight from Twitter!

To get started, users will have to authenticate their account and enter their credit card information. When they’re ready to send some Coke, all they have to do is tweet a link to their intended recipient. When opened, this link lets the receiver redeem their bottle of coke from participating Regal Cinemas locations. Pretty neat, huh?

OhGizmo! Review: The OGIO No Drag Mach 3 Motorcycling Backpack

smIMG_65426

Riding around town on two wheels is an amazing experience, but it’s also one that inevitably causes you to compromise on many fronts. There’s no storage space on a motorcycle if you don’t have saddle bags, for instance, yet you might still want to bring stuff with you on your rides. Regular backpacks flop around in the wind at higher speeds and tend to become annoying after a while. We were looking for something designed specifically for riding; after some research, we settled on the above. We’ve spent the last few weeks testing the OGIO No Drag Mach 3 Backpack, and we’d like to spend the next few lines telling you about it. If you’re not in the mood for reading, out here we can tell you this much: it’s fantastic and well worth the money.

This’ll Scare the Crap Out of You: Horror Story Toilet Paper

Horror Story Toilet Paper

Done reading all of the books and comics you’ve stashed in the bathroom? Then here’s one bathroom reader that might just literally scare the crap out of you: the Horror Story toilet paper roll. Sorry if that was a bit too graphic for you, but I just couldn’t resist. This is basically a roll of toilet paper with a scarier-than-though story printed on it.

The horrific tales are penned by Koji Suzuki, who’s known for writing the “Ring” and “Spiral” series. They’re sold in sets of three, with each one featuring a different story.

They’re available online for £9.99 (or about $17.)

This Borg Cube Fridge Is All The Refrigeration A Trekkie Needs

star_trek_borg_cube_fridge_1

“The first officially publicized Federation contact with a Borg cube took place in 2365, when the USS Enterprise-D encountered a single cube in System J-25.” This much we know thanks to Google and the first wiki we came across, but we’ll confess to not being familiar with Borg cubes. Seeing as it does look rather cool though, we decided to tell the Trekkies in our audience that they can get a tiny one that doubles as not only a fridge, but also a food warmer. Measuring only 11.5″ on each side, this cube won’t hold a ton of food, and we don’t even really know how it keeps food warm… but we suppose a cramped dorm room might be appropriate for something like this. It does glow green behind the Borg coating, as well as inside. The door does lock to prevent spillage, while the rubber feet prevent it from sliding around. It’s… as good as things are going to get for a mini Borg cube fridge we suppose, and we’re glad Thinkgeek is only asking $150 for it.

Great Scott! This Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger Will Juice Up Two Devices At Once

flux

There’s something about movie-themed merchandise that makes it almost irresistible to make movie-related puns and references. They’re usually really tacky, unless the writers are top notch. I’m bottom notch… so I’m not finding an elegant way to tie 88mph, Great Scott, and “Roads … where we’re going, we don’t need roads” all in one article. So I’ll just tell you that this USB car charger plugs into your cigarette lighter socket, charges two devices at once, and looks like the flux capacitor from BTTF. It’s $25.
