Why Not: A Tungsten Sphere As A Desk Toy

tungsten-sphere-22701

There’s a literally endless array of things you can purchase to decorate your work desk. What you decide on says a lot about your personality, so if you opt for the above Tungsten sphere, we imagine you’re telling the world that you’re a little geeky and can appreciate the beauty in having a ball of relatively uncommon material just lay there, inviting conversation. Tungsten, incidentally, is the material from which lightbulb coils are made of. What’s cool about it is that it’s quite dense: a 2 inch sphere weighs 3 lbs! It comes with a plastic 3D printed base, and for a limited time the manufacturer will throw in a 1 inch Tungsten cube. The very dense sphere costs a very dense $229, but if you’ve got the spare cash, we think it’s a great purchase, if only just for kicks.

OhGizmo! Review: The Uuni 2S Is The Portable Wood-fired Pizza Oven You’ve Been Waiting For

Uuni-20160127-7306

There’s a bunch of ways you can make your own pizza at home, but if you ever have a chance to get it cooked in a wood-fired oven, you’ll realize just how awesome these are. Unfortunately, these tend to be huge, not portable in the least, cost a fortune, and therefore are out of reach. The Uuni 2S that we received as a review unit a few weeks ago however is none of the above. It’s extremely portable and costs a very reasonable $300. It uses granulated wood pellets as fuel, which are energy dense and low in cost, and is able to reach temperatures of 900F (480C) in as little as 10 minutes of heat-up time. That’s hot enough to cook a pizza in 2 minutes. Or at least, this is what the company claims. So how did it do? Let’s find out.

Rocket Coffee Table Is For Adult Children

rocket-coffee-table-stelios-mousarris-575ea9378402d__880

Cyprus based artist Mousarris makes some cool furniture. Previously we featured his Wave City Coffee Table inspired by the movie Inception. And now we bring you news of the Rocket Coffee Table. Using a combination of 3D printing, resin casting and traditional hand carving, each leg looks like a rocket taking off. They’re not attached to the glass top, so the owner is able to use them as he wishes, although if you’re going to pay the $5,645 asking price, you might as well use it as-is.

“I have been collecting toys and action figures and anything nostalgic from my childhood until this day,’ says Mousarris on his website. ‘Every time I take a look at my collectibles I remember my childhood, when I used to play for hours on end without a care in the world. I wanted to recreate that feeling of carefreeness and nostalgia with the Rocket Coffee Table.”

We feel you, brother, we feel you. And if we had $5k burning a hole in our wallets, we might’ve already placed an order.

This Is The World’s Ugliest Color, Find Out Why We Use It

worlds-ugliest-color

The color you see above is called ‘Opaque Couché’, also known as Pantone 448 C. It is now officially, at least according to a study conducted by an agency hired by the Australian government, the world’s ugliest color. You might be wondering why the Australian government would go to the effort of hiring an external agency to determine this, and it’s simple: it is hoping that slapping this color on cigarette packagings will discourage smokers. This, along with already-present graphic warnings, definitely makes cigarette packs look fugly… but is it enough? We don’t know what sort of impact this research and effort might have on future sales, but American, Irish, and French governments seems to think it’s worth a shot, as they’re following suit and doing something similar.
