Deal Of The Day: Drunk Hunt Game Cartridge Flask

drunk-hunt

Well today’s deal doesn’t appear to be a deal at all, but it’s interesting nonetheless. It’s the Drunk Hunt Game Cartridge Flask, and it’s super cheap anyway, so I guess it’s a deal. Plus free shipping.

This classic cartridge will take you back to your gaming glory days, but now you’re old enough to drink too. With safe materials and a stellar retro design, this flask may be all fun and games on the outside, but it gets down to business fast on the inside.

A Hoodie For Lovers

together-wear-1

Together Wear is a line of hoodies that were designed with two people in mind. Not content with sporting kangaroo pockets in the front, the hoodies also have them in the back. This way when you and your better half hug, you can cosily put your hands in their back pocket. Why? Because the Internet, that’s why. Because people will make products and post pics that some sappy heads will see and go “aawww” and poke their boyfriends and say “buy me this” and next thing you know it’s a viral hit. Well, Together Wear is not a viral hit, not yet anyway. They’re getting funding on Kicktarter and haven’t quite reached their goal. But the hoodies do seem to be made with quality in mind, and at a $69 pledge for one, or more importantly $119 for two, it’s not outrageously priced. We’re not sure how to feel about them; ridiculous product or start of a new trend?

The Bunyanesque Hammock For You And All The Friends You Don’t Have

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 6.59.54 AM

Ok, we’re just being mean. Maybe you do have friends and we’re projecting. Whatever your social situation is, The Bunyanesque Hammock might actually appeal to you. It’s basically a giant tarp that you have to stretch out between trees or post or other structures.

“Four 20′-long, 1″-wide straps—each on its own rated to support up to 1,100 lbs.—secure the hammock’s four webbed type-12 bonded nylon corners to trees, posts, or other sturdy, immovable structures using eight stainless steel hooks.”

It’s rated to support up to 1,000 lbs, which is five 200 lbs. adults or about 72 kids. We think. Anyway, it’s a lot of people frolicking about in what looks like a ton of fun on a summer afternoon. It’s also a lot of money: $500.

Turn It Off And On Again? This Little Gadget Will Do It For You

Reset_plug2

Internet went out again? You probably know the easiest way to get that fixed is to walk to your router, unplug the darn thing and wait for things to fix themselves. Most of the time it works all the time. But it’s still annoying to have to get up off your couch, so the ResetPlug does it for you. Just plug your router into it, and then the device itself into your wall socket. It’ll connect to your WiFi network after being configured, and will periodically monitor your Internet connection; when it sees it went out, it’ll just cut power to your router, wait a bit, and power back up. It’ll keep doing this until your connection is restored. If you want to monitor more than one device, say a modem and a router, just use a power strip and voila! It’s great not only to save you the hassle of getting up, but if you have any home appliances or devices that rely on a working connection, like security cameras or smart appliances, the ResetPlug will make sure they keep on keeping on even when you’re away from home. It’s $60.

Awesome Infographic On The History Of Mobile Phones

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 6.28.27 PM

Any of you old enough to remember the days before mobile phones? It was a dreadful time, when you had to pick up these barbell-shaped plastic receivers with no screens and stand by the wall talking into them, like some lunatic. Looking into our super high definition phablets, these days, it’s easy to imagine things were always this way, but if you’re a day over 15 you know it isn’t true. Mobile phones have gone a very long way since they hit the market, and the folks at Broadbandchoices.co.uk have done an amazing job in putting together a genuinely engaging infographic on the history of the mobile phone. From the humble Motorola DynaTAC in 1983, through the awesomeness of the StarTAC, to the high tech glory of the LG G5, all the stars are there. We strongly recommend giving it a look.

Rolls-Royce’s Wraith Luggage Collection Costs More Than A Regular Luxury Sedan

rollys-royce-wraith-luggage-collection-11

If you’re going to drop six digits on a Rolls-Royce vehicle, you might be tempted to think “well, might as well drop five digits on a set of luggage.” That’s at least what the folks at Rolls-Royce are thinking with their Wraith Luggage Collection, for which they’re asking you to part with $45,854. That’s right, for the price of a well equipped luxury sedan you can get yourself a set of 6 bags to complement your brand new $300,000 RR Wraith. The set consists of

Two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekend bags and a Garment Carrier. The set was designed by Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke Design Studio to complement the cars. This plush luggage set will be available only with Rolls-Royce dealers, emphasizing its luxury credentials. The set is exclusively designed to complement the car’s look, so there are many points of symmetry between the bags and the car. For instance the stitching on steering wheel of the Wraith and handle of the weekend bag are identical, perfected by Haute Couture clothing. Obviously, the brand didn’t miss self-righting wheels and to emblazon the double-R logo almost everywhere, from wheels to zips.

Even if we did have that kind of cash lying around, we’re not sure how we’d feel about putting $40,000 bags in the cargo hold of a commercial plane, but then again we suspect the target market is here is the ‘private plane’ kind of crowd. Oh, and if $45,854 didn’t seem expensive enough, you should know the price goes higher is you want to customize the bags to your liking.

Anker’s (Not So) Portable Power Pack

powerhouse-1

There are portable power packs, and then there’s Anker’s PowerHouse. It’s about the size (7.9 x 6.5 x 5.7 inches) and weight (9.3 lbs) of a concrete construction brick, so might weigh things down a bit should you decide to toss it in a backpack. That being said, what you’re trading for that all that heft is a massive charging capacity. At 120,000 mAh, the 434Wh behemoth is able to fully recharge a laptop 15 times over. For reference, an iPhone 6 Plus has a 2,950 mAh battery. It outputs all that electricity through a 12V socket, an AC socket, or 4 USB-ports. It’s meant to take with you when you’re off grid and power your electronics for long periods. The PowerHouse is able to feed most things, like stereos, TVs, and lamps, but it might choke on higher-voltage appliances like toasters or hair-dryers. Still, no one is expecting you to try to blow-dry your hair while your husbands sets up the tent, so the point is moot.

It’s $500.
