If It’s Firepower You Want, This Airsoft Grenade Launcher Has You Covered

airsoft-grenade-launcher

We were pretty impressed with the Echo1 M134 MiniGun Airsoft Machine Gun we wrote about in January. But if you decide to pair that with this ICS-190 GLM Grenade Launcher, then you’ve officially gone Full Rambo, and you can colour us awestruck. Now, if you’re going to go ‘Full Rambo’, you may as well do it Airsoft-style because no one really likes maniacs with real MiniGuns and grenade launchers outside of a military context.

The ICS GLM full size 6-round revolving grenade launcher is a sight to behold. It is a fully-functioning grenade launcher that features an impact-resistant polymer frame, with metallic revolving chambers that can house up to 6x 40mm Airsoft grenade shells.

The GLM also features a fully integrated rail system, which allows for easy installation of necessities such as grips, lasers, flashlights, and even has a top rail for optics (holo-sight on your grenade launcher, anybody?). A tactical ergonomic vertical foregrip is included in the package for shooting stability, and is removable should you want to replace it with a grip or other accessory of your own.

The rear stock is a tactical 6-point adjustable/retractable L.E. carbine-style stock, which is also adjustable to three different angles (for your shooting comfort) to dial in the optimal shooting position, whether you are standing, crouching, crawling, or running. Quick detach sling swivel points are also integrated onto the frame of the GLM to allow for easy sling attachment.

It’s $130.

Tablio Is A Tiny Desk For Your Lap

tablio-2

Working with a laptop is great, until you start craving the use of a mouse. “Deal with it” would be the advice of many, but Rodolfo Lozano believes it doesn’t have to be that way. He’s created Tablio, a mini desk with a ventilated surface to keep you cool while you work, and two slide-out surfaces for using a mouse and setting down your phone or anything else you want handy. It comes in 13in. and 15in. configurations, and is made from bamboo. A $87 pledge will get you one, but hurry since there’s only 38 left at that price.

Wood Veneer Cover For Your PS4

ps4-lifestyle-sd_1024x1024

Wood is the new black. Maybe. We’re not sure how cool wood is to be honest, but we can tell you we’re not hating on Balolo’s Wooden Cover for the Playstation 4. It’s made from a 0.7mm thin layer of actual wood, and you have the option of buying the cover and applying it yourself, or ordering a PS4 from the company with the cover already applied. You have a choice between walnut, bamboo, ‘zebra’, and cherry wood, and the cover only will set you back a hefty €149, or $205. Adding a PS4 along with that brings the price up to €599, or $826, which means there’s a roughly $200 bump for the cover’s installation. Maybe you can figure it out yourself?

Ball Shattering Glass At 10 Million Frames Per Second

high-speed-camera

There really isn’t much to say about the above, other than “Holy Crap!” The world is full of the infinitely small, infinitely big, and the ridiculously fast. For the latter, there are instruments like the HyperVision HPV-X Camera of Shimadzu. Shooting at a leisurely 10 million frames per second, the above animation apparently spans around 0.000024872s-0.000072s, depending on the actual playback fps (which we’re not sure about).

The Only Staircase You’ll Need: Comes With Shelves, a Cupboard, and a Desk

Haasnot Stairs Shelves Cupboard

 

Cities are getting more overcrowded by the minute. That means increased rent, smaller spaces, and more cramped apartments all throughout. It’s probably with this in mind that inspired Dutch design studio Mieke Meijer to come up with this four-in-one piece of furniture, as it combines a staircase, storage shelves, a cupboard, and even a desk.

The work was commissioned by designer Just Haasnoot and it’s definitely a huge space-saver, I’ll give it that. While it’s not the safest staircase in the world (no handrails and it’s pretty narrow), it makes the most out of limited space that plain old staircases typically occupy.

You can find out more info about it HERE.

Every Weight Watcher’s Dream: Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top

Caffeine Slimming Top

 

Breaking up is hard to do, but losing weight is even harder. At least, it is, for the people who have tried but constantly failed. It’s probably this group of people that the makers of this Caffeine-Infused Slimming Tank Top are targeting. As the name implies, this top apparently has slimming properties as it’s infused with green coffee and brown algae that’ll work on stimulating your body’s metabolism. That’s because the micronized caffeine stimulates lipolysis, which is the natural breakdown of stored fats, while the brown algae moisturizes the skin.

It also cheats because the top comes in black, and we all know black gives the illusion of a slimmer figure. The manufacturer claims that the top can help trim its wearer’s hips by up to 1 inch and thighs by up to 11/4 of an inch if it’s worth for eight hours a day for 21 straight days. Sounds too good to be true, I’ll give it that, but who knows? It could actually work.

The Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top retails for $85.

Case Hobo is the Swiss Army Knife for On-the-Go Diners

Case Hobo Knife

You can eat most take-out food with nothing but your hands and maybe some tissue, but there are some that can only be enjoyed with utensils (spaghetti, for one). Nothing is more infuriating than getting ready to chow down, only to realize that they forgot to include plastic utensils with your food.

Cue the Case Hobo, which is like a Swiss Army knife for people who eat on the go a lot, since it folds out to reveal a spoon, a fork, and a knife. With an amber bone handle and the utensils made from surgical steel, this is as fancy as portable utensils can get. Obviously you won’t be able to use all three at once, but it sure beats having to use your hands.

The Case Hobo is priced at $70.

Literal Branding: Jeans Label Carpet

Jeans Label Carpet

 

How many brands of jeans do you have in your closet? Probably not more brands than the ones on the Jeans Label carpet, which is exactly what its name implies it is. You won’t find a carpet quite like this one in stores. Sold by Kings of Sweden, these carpets are sown patch by batch using labels from discarded jeans. They probably aren’t the softest or most comfortable carpets to step on, but they’ll definitely bring a different vibe to whatever your room you decide to put it in.

The Jeans Label carpet is available in two sizes, 140x200cm and 160x240cm, and costs $560 and $760, respectively.
