Wake Up to a Cup of Joe: Barisieur Coffee Maker Alarm Clock

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nothing beats waking up to the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee, just as no other alarm clock can beat the Barisieur Coffee Maker Alarm Clock because it makes the former possible. The uniquely-designed alarm clock also happens to be a coffee maker that works on brewing you a cup of Joe that’ll be ready by the time your alarm goes off.

Not only does it do the work in brewing that cup of coffee for you, but it also gives you extra motivation to wake up and get out of bed.

Cloud to Butt Plus Browser Extension: Save Files to the Butt

Cloud to Butt Plus

 

Would you like to save those files to the butt? You might want to upload backups of your photos to your butt, too, in case you’re running low on storage.

No, we’re not confusing the cloud with butt, because it’s Cloud to Butt Plus that’s doing all the mixing up for us. The Chrome browser extension swaps out all mention of “cloud” with “butt” because it’s funner and funnier that way. Plus, it injects a bit of humor into an otherwise boring and typical day at the office.

Butt atlas, butt storage, butt management, butty with a chance of meatballs… the list goes on and on. You can install Cloud to Butt Plus here.

Ahoy, Matey: Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

 

It’s frustrating to use chopsticks when you haven’t gotten the hang of it. It’s worse when you’re doing so on an empty (or close-to-empty) stomach. But you’re not alone. The pirate at the end of these uber adorable chopsticks echoes your sentiments with his comically pained expression, and he wants to help you.

With his mere presence, he turns the chopsticks into sort-of clips that makes picking up food easier. They’re great if you’re just starting to learn to use chopsticks.

The Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks are available online for about $6.

Stumble Upon is a Rug and Coffee Table Combo That You Can Literally Stumble Upon

Stumble Upon

There’s StumbleUpon on the world wide web to help you stumble upon sites, articles, and blogs that you might find interesting. There’s also a Stumble Upon for the real world which happens to be an unusually designed piece of furniture: it’s a rug that doubles as a coffee table as well. Designed by Alessandro Isola, the Stumble Upon might just literally make you stumble upon a magazine on the table by tripping you up. I doubt that’s Alessandro’s intention with his design, though.

His project called ‘stumble upon,’ Alessandro Isola uses these folds and curves to an advantage that creates a flexible and practical coffee table”

Awesome Ads: Tap Your Beer Bottle, Unlock a Movie

Movie Unlocker

There’s nothing left to do with the bottle once all the beer is gone…or is there? Russian design studio Heads and Hands came up with a fun and unusual way to reward those who drink Grolsch beer by incorporating a movie unlocker right onto the bottle. After taking the final swig, beer drinkers can tap the empty bottle onto their phone, tablet, or laptop and enjoy a movie on the house (or is it, on the beer?)

The whole thing is possible thanks to iBeacon bluetooth technology and the Movie Unlocker app. A beacon is actually hidden under the Grolsch beer cap, which sends out a bluetooth signal to the device that in turn connects to the server to unlock the movie.

Creep on your neighbours? Freak people out with how weird you look while wearing them? The possibilities are definitely not endless, but there’s a fair amount of fun to be had with the Chameleon Vision Goggles pictured above. They give you the ability to look in different directions, with each eye being independent from the other. You can even look behind you with the included side mirrors.

Sure, it’s a novelty item with limited use, but at least you won’t break the bank with the $11 asking price.

Oral-B’s Connected Toothbrush Might Make Brushing More Fun

Oral-B_SmartSeries_Bluetooth_Toothbrush

Connected devices are all the rage these days, and the toothbrush appears to be the latest to receive the treatment. The Oral-B Smart Series are a line of electric brushes that connect to your smartphone through Bluetooth 4.0, and give you the ability to track a number of brushing-related metrics. From how often, to how long, to how well you brush will be instantly visible on the app, and perhaps serve as a visual encouragement to practice better oral hygiene. The brushes themselves feature all of Oral-B’s abilities, such as 3D cleaning action and visible pressure sensor lights that warn you when you’re brushing a little too vigorously. Price and availability are unclear at this point.
