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.

Beeracuda Is The Perfect Drink Chilling Sling

beeracuda-1

Are you a beer lover? Well, who isn’t? I personally don’t know of a person who wouldn’t enjoy a chilled beer when offered one. The point, however, is to keep your beer chilled, always. Well, indoors it’s possible with a cool fridge, but what about outdoors? How do you keep your beer cold when you’re out and about? You definitely cannot carry an ice box along wherever you go. So what helps?

The answer is: a Beeracuda! It’s an insulated beer sling made by Burton that can keep your 6-pack of beers, or soda, chilled and cozy, stacked inside its insulated zippered tube. There also is a double-sized Beeracuda that has the ability to store 10 cans of your favorite beer. And, the shoulder strap comes with a koozie, so you have easy access to one chilled beer without having to open the entire sling bag. So, party whenever and however you want to with your Burton’s Beeracuda, which will only set you back $20 or $25.

This Hodor Door Stopper Is A Hit

hodor_hold_the_door_stop_1

So… not to spoil the show for those who haven’t watched yet, interesting things happen to Hodor in Game of Thrones. It involves several things, among them being him holding a door in a very important scene. So it stands to reason that you’d see a Hodor door stopper skyrocket in popularity on Kickstarter: a project that started out seeking a modest $5,000 is up to $84,000 as of this writing. It’s 6 inches tall and 3D printed out of, well, plastic. Apparently making this out of metal would raise the costs “to over $500 per unit”. We question the company’s ability to accurately gauge the cost of metal door stoppers, but it doesn’t matter anyway, since it’s a freaking door stopper and who really needs it being made out of metal. If you want your own “Hodoor” Hold the Door Doorstop, you’ll need to pledge $37 or more.
