Your Everyday Shed The Tetra Shed Is Not

tetra_shed

You think assembling IKEA furniture is challenging? Try the Tetra Shed on for size, then. The modular, multi-use cabin comes flat packed and can be assembled in a number of different configurations, depending on your needs. You’ll get a whopping 28 sq. ft. of storage, where we hope you’ll park something just as luxurious and valuable than this shed. Considering you’ll have to spend $25,000 to get your own, there’s a chance all the stuff you own is also worth a pretty penny.

These Glasses Have Eyes On Them So You Don’t Have To Feel Awkward, You Know, Looking At People

glass-eyes-1397147175192

Being comfortable in public and knowing what to do with your eyes is natural to some, but a nightmare to others. To help you with the social discomfort, Dr. Hirotaka Osawa from Tsukuba University, in Japan, has developed the AgencyGlass. They’re a pair of glasses outfitted with OLED screens, an accelerometer, Bluetooth, a camera, and a micro controller. The idea is that if you’re having trouble figuring out just what to do with your eyes, these could do it for you.

The digital eyes blink when you nod or shake your head, look up when you tilt your head down and (best of all) it stays open even while you doze off, all thanks to a gyroscope and an accelerometer that detects head movement. That’s not all they can do, though — the eyes also automatically look up when the system determines that a person is looking at you, as taken by the accompanying camera.

As you can imagine, the AgencyGlass is not commercially available. But the idea of using technology to help wearers overcome something like social discomfort (or what Osawa calls ‘Emotional Labor’) is a good one and we hope to see more of this kind of technology make its way to consumers in the future.

Grush is a Gaming Toothbrush That Turns Brushing Into a Game

Grush

 

Kids are sometimes unaware of the importance of brushing at least thrice a day until it’s too late. Cavities, gum disease, bad breath–you name it and you’ll get it if you don’t brush regularly and practice good oral hygiene. You’re past that age of ignorance and unawareness, but your kid probably isn’t. So if little Junior ain’t brushing like he’s supposed to, then here’s something to convince him otherwise: Grush, which is a smart toothbrush system that turns brushing into a game.

The toothbrush hooks up with an app that displays a virtual set of teeth. Brush for the minimum required amount of time and the monsters that lurk in that certain area will gradually disappear on the screen.

Lix is Everything a 3D Printing Pen Should Be

Sleek 3D Pen

Lix isn’t the first 3D printing pen on the market, but it definitely has a leg up against one of the first that were released (read: the 3Doodler) because its shaped and built more like a pen than some over-sized marker. That means the user can create three-dimensional renderings with better control and more precise strokes and movement.

The Lix 3D printing pen was developed by Anton Suvorov, who will be launching it on Kickstarter in the new few weeks.

Small Speaker, Great Sound: Aiia Ssssspeaker

Aiia Ssssspeaker

 

Big sound, small speakers. That’s probably what best describes the Aiia Ssssspeaker. At first glance, the speaker with the unusual name doesn’t really look like much of a speaker. In fact, it probably looks more like a hockey puck when it’s not in use. But pull the collapsible cone out from the base of the speaker and get ready to get lost in your favorite tunes.

One major downside? Aiia isn’t built with Bluetooth so you won’t be able to hook it up with your music player or smartphone wirelessly; instead, you’ll have to hook it up via the 3.5mm auxiliary port.

Only For the Gutsy: Blood and Guts Tent

Blood and Guts Tent

This tent by artist Andre Hasler wins the award for World’s Goriest Tent, hands-down. Even people who would normally opt for comfort and protection from the great outdoors would probably opt to sleep outside of it, because it’s really too grotesque for words. You could say it’s literally a pile of raw, bloody, gunky-looking goo.

Well, that and the fact that it’s made from sculpted fiber glass that’s coated with wax, because what’s the point in freaking yourself out if it isn’t comfortable at all? Hit the break for more pics of the tent.

Want This: Iron Throne Chair Backboard

Iron Throne Backboard

 

Everyone on Game of Thrones is fighting for the throne, but you can have it–at least, your very own, non-iron throne–thanks to Telegraph UK and Now TV. The pair are giving away a replica of the throne of swords that comes with the throne backboard and a cushioned seat. Actually, it’s more of a seat than an actual throne since it’s meant to be attached to an armchair or an office chair.

The bad news? The competition is only open to UK residents (so if you are from the UK, then lucky you. You can head on over here to check out the giveaway deets.) You can probably make your own if you’re resourceful and actually have the time to put one together.

Chocolate Toothpaste: Have Dessert, Brush, and Have Dessert Again

Theodent Chocolate Toothpaste

 

Remember how you wished that chocolate-flavored toothpaste existed back when you were still a kid? Well, you might have grown several feet since then but now Theodent has made that wish come true with their new line of fluoride-free, chocolate-flavored toothpaste. This probably isn’t the first time someone decided to make toothpaste that made it seem like you were brushing chocolate all over your teeth, but Theodent is different in the sense that the chocolate flavor isn’t there just for novelty’s sake.

Rather, it’s there because of Theodent’s toothpaste formulation that contains a patented substance obtained from the cacao plant that gives it its distinctive chocolatey flavor. It’s called rennou, and it’s non-toxic and safe-to-ingest (although you probably shouldn’t squeeze it and eat it right out of the tube), so you won’t have to worry about kids accidentally ingesting it while brushing.

Theodent Classic is sold at $10, while the extra-strength variant Theodent 300 is priced at a whopping $100.
