KFC Makes Nail Polish That Tastes Like Chicken

kfc-nail-polish-e1462378160998

Their slogan is “Finger Lickin’ Good”, so it sort of makes sense, doesn’t it? See, as part of a promotional effort in Hong Kong, the local KFC office has apparently created nail polish that looks just like regular nail color, but happens to taste of delicious fried chicken. That way, well, you can spend your days looking entirely normal with your fingers in your mouth. They come in two flavours: Hot & Spicy, and Original Recipe. They were conceived and developed by McCormick, the spice company behind KFC’s secret spice and herb mix, and are allegedly completely safe to consume. The polishes are not being mass produced yet; the company is showing early prototypes off in promotional pics and asking fans to vote on which flavour they’d actually like to see being made. Whether it does ever make it into the wild, let alone stateside, is anyone’s guess.

The GoBoat Is Functional, And That’s All That Matters

goboat

You want a watercraft that packs in the trunk of your car, works well, and lets you go fishing all by yourself without too much trouble? Look no further than the GoBoat. Weighing only 15 lbs, the boat assembles in minutes, with different parts simply snapping together. You’ll need a pump to inflate the bladder (high velocity hand pump included), and then a bit of elbow grease to drop the transom mounted trolling motor (sold separately) in once it’s set up. But no big deal. It’ll accept most types of such motors, which themselves weigh about 30 lbs and cost maybe $100. The GoBoat itself is a $199 pledge, with shipping in September 2016 if funding is successful.

The Flatev Is Like A Keurig For Tortillas

flatev-1

Keurig is probably having a fit at its brand name being used this way, but perhaps they should be happy that they’re now so closely associated with pod-based single-serve appliances. In this case however you won’t be brewing yourself a steaming mug of Joe, but a crispy tortilla instead. The Flatev uses pods, much like the Keurig, only these ones are filled with all the ingredients necessary to make a tasty, fresh tortilla at home. Pick your dough, and your crispiness level, press a button, and sit back as the machine does the rest. To get your own, you’ll have to pledge at least $239, but you get a batch of 48 pods to start with. We don’t know how much each pod will set you back but it’s not like this is meant to be the most cost-efficient cooking method.

The Roomba Is Not The Only Cleaning Bot On The Market: Meet The ILIFE A4 Smart Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

ilife-3

The nice thing about capitalism is competition. In a perfect world this means better prices for the consumer, more choice, and a greater incentive for manufacturers to produce quality content. Now most people are aware of iRobot and their line of Roomba vacuum cleaning bots. They do their job well, of course, but they’re also not cheap. The ILIFE A4 Smart Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is a cool looking alternative from our up-and-coming Chinese friends, and for the asking price we’re pretty impressed with what it claims to do. If you’ll pardon the slight Engrish, allow us to paste here some of the product highlights:

Automatic Cleaning for home and office, large area available up to 180 – 200 square meters
Smart Sweeping Cleaning Modes, it can meet your different needs, you can choose the dry or wet mop
Anti-collision System: It can better protect the furniture
Intelligent Drop Avoidance Induction: IR sensors at the bottom detect the high gap, avoid the dropping, it will avoid the obstacles and change direction automatically by inductor
Daily / Schedule Cleaning Plan Available: Set the start time, and make the cleaning daily at the fixed time even you are not in office or at home
OBS Sensors, 1 set wall sensor, 5 IR receivers on the body make this robot vacuum cleaner recognize the barrier and avoid being collided
Timing Function: You can set up time to clean the room
7.6cm Slim Design enable this cleaner working in the narrow space, it is possible to clean the bottom of furniture and corner
Less Than 65dB Low Noise Design: Easy to help you solve the noisy problem

In other words it looks like they’ve incorporated most, if not all, the features expected from these types of products. But they’ve done so at a $150 price point! When you consider that a new Roomba is probably around $500, the ILIFE A4 Smart Robotic Vacuum Cleaner might end up being the average man’s alternative.

The Hammocraft: Because Why Not?

hammocraft-1

“Screw-it, let’s do it” has got the be the most American, and awesome, attitude in approaching new product design. It’s definitely what the makers of the Hammocraft told themselves on a beer-fuelled brainstorming session, but what they made is both amazing and ridiculous at the same time. Mostly ridiculous, yes, but amazing for being so. It’s a watercraft first and foremost. And it’s also four hammocks. So that’s it. It’s so that you can go fishing while laying on a hammock. We think.

It’s not even really a water craft, actually. It’s more like a $1,000 kit so that you can make your own craft using two paddle boards, which are not included. Also not included: the hammocks. So yeah, you’re being asked to spend one large on a metal frame that might end up turning into what you see in the pictures. Also required, you and three friends. Not two because balance. And make sure one of them is not super fat, because also balance. It… I mean, it’s a cool idea, sort of. Or maybe not even… Geez, we get it: it’d be awesome to just drink beer all day, while lazily throwing a line down and laying in a hammock. We’re just not sure the Hammocraft is going to get you there.

Nevermind Baby Wipes, Adults Use Life Wipes

lifewipes-640x480

Baby wipes are great, and not just for babies. I know enough girls who carry them around everywhere because they think their skin is as soft as a baby’s bum, and deserves the same kind of treatment. Ok, fair enough, but for those of us who need a good wipedown and aren’t so fussy about hypoallergenic this, or no-scent that, there’s Life Wipes. Their claim to fame isn’t that they’re not super soft, because they probably are. No, it’s that they’re super big. One wipe measures 1′ X 2′! That’s not a wet towelette, it’s straight up a wet towel. So when do you need it? How about when you go camping, get all muddy and dirty and shit, but what… you’re gonna shower? Soak in a cold stream? Didn’t think so. You’re gonna wipe yourself down with these and call it a day. It’s great!

A 10-pack will set you back $25, which seems like a lot until you remember these aren’t freaking baby wipes. These are Aloe Vera soaked, “all-natural spunlace biodegradable cotton”, Vitamin E totin’, adult-wipes for when you don’t wanna wash properly but don’t wanna look all dirty. There’s a place in the market for them, for sure.
