‘Refold’ is a Portable Cardboard Standing Desk

Refold Standing Desk

 

Standing desks are all the rage these days. There are a number of purported health benefits to working while standing up, although they come with several risks and warnings too. At the end of the day, it all boils down to preference. If portability and cost are high up on your list, then you might want to get Refold.

It’s a foldable standing desk made from cardboard components, which makes it light enough to be assembled, disassembled, and transported by a single person. And since it’s made from cardboard, it’s 100% recyclable. Just don’t get it wet, and you should be fine.

Refold is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $115 will get you one of your very own.

Yovo Photo-Sharing App Messes Up Screenshots to Protect Your Pics

Yovo App

So a lot of snaps that were taken and sent using Snapchat were leaked recently. I, for one, am a firm believer that if you need to have an image deleted mere moments after you’ve taken it, then you probably shouldn’t be taking that picture in the first place. Scores of people disagree, so if you’re looking for an alternative to Snapchat, then you should check out Yovo.

It’s an image sharing app created by ContentGuard and it uses a simple but ingenious way to keep your images private. All pictures taken using the app have a blurred grill overlay added to it, which isn’t apparent when you’re checking out the picture. However, it effectively ruins (or rather, blocks) the image when the recipient tries to take a screenshot.

Chestburster Drive Thru Prank: Would You Like a Side of ‘Alien’ With That?

One of the scariest elements of the Alien franchise has got to be the chestbursters. Even the mere thought of having an alien creature growing and feeding inside you before bursting out of your chest, causing excruciating pain is hair-raising. This holds true, even if you haven’t watched any of the movies, and prankster Rahat is well-aware of this.

That’s probably why he chose to do the alien chestburster prank on unsuspecting drive-thru workers. (On a side note, he’s done a lot of these drive-thru pranks so it’s only a matter of time before they wise up to Rahat’s ways, right?) Check out the reaction that his prank elicits from the drive-thru people, some of them are just priceless!

Win the Sumo Wrestling Match, Get a Giant Green Macaron

Giant Green Macaron Sumo PRize

Boxers get cash, but sumo wrestlers get an even better prize (subjectively speaking, that is): a giant macaron. At least, that’s what the second placer was awarded at the recent Sumo Senshuraku tournament in Japan. The giant green dessert was prepared by renowned French pastry chef Pierre Hermé, which made sense since the match was part of the France-Japan Friendship Cup.

Now that’s delectable to ginormous proportions!

iPhone Case Puts the Feeling of Green Grass In Your Hand

Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case

Lush greens, the feeling of freshly-cut blades of grass on your feet.. what does that imagery remind you off? Whether it’s a golf course or a typical summer’s day when you get to do nothing but lie back on a hammock, it often brings back fond memories (with the exception being those who had to endlessly mow other people’s lawns, that is.)

Now you can revel in those grassy memories by getting the Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case which is exactly what its name implies it is. The case is wrapped all around in a lush field of faux grass that looks and almost feel like the real thing. It’s not the practical or most durable of cases out there, but that isn’t really the point with this case, is it?

The Shibaful phone case is available for $84.

Cat Clutch, Ladies?

cat-clutch-purse-1-595x680

Since we’re on the topic of cats, some of you ladies out there might be interested in this cat clutch. It looks ridiculous. And it’s awesome.

It’s supposed to be a Halloween thing, we think. But we can totally see you rocking this year round. You’ll only have to pay $38 for the privilege, which is really very little for such a fashionable item. Being sold at Asos, with free shipping both ways (if you want to return it, say).

Cat Ear Headphones Are A Thing Now

cat-ear-headphones-2

We have a sneaking suspicion that Axent Wear’s new Cat Ear Heaphones will find a strong market mostly in Japan. But they’re sure as heck intriguing enough to get us talking about them on this side of the pond. Although really, there’s not much to say about them. The cat ears are actually speakers that can blast your music outwards. There are LEDs throughout to accent the design, and thankfully both the cat ears and LEDs can be turned off if you don’t feel like being obnoxious at any given time. And that’s it. It’s a $150 pledge on Indiegogo, which includes shipping, taxes and import duties worldwide.
