This Fruit-Flavoured Cup Tricks Your Brain Into Thinking Your Water Is Sweet


Obesity is rampant, and sugary drinks play a huge part in this epidemic. You can replace sugar with artificial sweeteners, but some people will tell you they’re bad for you (we don’t believe this), or maybe you don’t like the way they make your liquids taste. Well, there’s another option. The Right Cup is a regular drinking vessel that’s had fruit flavours baked right into the material its made of. This way you can drink plain water while smelling sweet aromas, and trick your brain into thinking you’re drinking something sweet; 80% of what you taste comes through your nose anyway, which is why you don’t taste a thing when your nose is blocked. Considering it’s a $25 pledge for one, and the smell will allegedly last up to 6 months, we say it’s a worthwhile purchase.

Chromecast Audio: A Must Have Wireless Music Streaming Device


The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group – Ed

The Google Chromecast is an audio-focused device that plugs into your speakers and streams music via Wi-Fi. If you have an interest in streaming wireless audio on your smart phone, tablet, or to any of the speakers at home, and are on a tight budget, seriously consider purchasing the Chromecast audio device.

This cute little device looks like a cross between a microscopic vinyl record and a lens cap. One side of the device has a smooth surface and the other has molded grooves. The device has a micro USB port (for power) and the 3.5 mm input jack enables it to connect to virtually any audio system. The Google Chromecast supports both optical and RCA inputs as well. Google thoughtfully included a five inch auxiliary cord and power adapter in the box with the Chromecast.

Pizza Wrapping Paper Is Perfect For The Holidays


You spend a lot of time thinking about what gifts to buy your loved ones over the Holidays, but let’s face it, you usually just grab whatever wrapping paper they have at the local drug store and call it a day. Taking the time to select carefully shows that extra touch of care, and what better way to show your love than you have your presents wrapped in paper that looks exactly like NYC style pizza? The Gift Couture Pizza Wrapping Paper is a Kickstarter that pitches just that, a pizza-patterned wrapping paper made from 30% post-consumer waste, acid free and archival quality.

Ono Bikes Are Made To Stand Out


You can add all kinds of useful features to a bicycle, and it’ll be just that: a useful bike. But you can take another route and simply add aesthetic features whose only use is to make the bike look beautiful. In this regard, we’d say Ono Bikes, from Serbia, has succeeded. Its first model, the Archont, is certainly a looker. 9 feet long, and weighing in at a hefty 20kg (44lbs), this stainless steel easy rider features Shimano components and Schwalbe 26″ and 28″ wheels. The electric version is even more interesting, topping out at 49mph (80kph) on a 60 mile range. We don’t know how much they’ll set you back, but we imagine it’s one of those “if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it” kind of items.

This Hooded Scarf Makes You Look Like An Ewok


With the release of The Force Awakens barely a month away, Star Wars fever is at an all time high. So of course the merchandising machine is running full steam. With it being the Holiday season, it’s practically hysterical. There won’t be any surprise then that we see stuff like the Star Wars Ewok Knit Hooded Scarf popping up. It’s a cute piece of clothing that presumably will keep you warm while also sort of making you look like an Ewok. You won’t fool anyone into thinking you’re an actual Ewok, however, because you don’t look ike George Lucas and everyone knows he made those in his image. Well, maybe he didn’t but I always thought he looked like an Ewok. Amirite? Anyone?

Ok, I’ll show myself out. But not before telling you the thing is $25.
