redesign_lootcrate_mf

Remember that Family Guy episode where Peter gas to choose between a yacht and a mystery box? Admit it, you’d choose the box too, and now you can. The Loot Crate: Epic Gamer Gear In A Box is a monthly subscription based product that comes, well, in a box. Meaning, you’ll get a box each month containing all kinds of stuff gamers might like. There’s “gear, collectibles, toys, apparel, art, and other goodies”. It’s like nerd Christmas every month. And with today’s deal, you’ll pay $48 for 3 months of this, rather than the usual $56.

Iron Throne iPhone Case

So There’s This: BloodRayne ArmBlade Replica

arm-blade

We can’t really think of anything useful you might want to do with the above ArmBlade, but that shouldn’t stop you from buying it. After all, if you only ever bought stuff that’s actually useful, you’d likely have a lot more money in your bank account. Measuring a healthy 17-3/8-inch long, the thing is made from one piece of hard-anodized black stainless steel. Along with the blade, you get all the other hardware needed to assemble it, including the grip and forearm strap. The best part, perhaps, is that you’ll have to pay all of $18 to own it. Which, all things considered, isn’t a whole bunch of money to spend on something not entirely useful.

GoTenna Keeps You Connected, Even Off The Grid

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 6.31.50 PM

There are times when cellular services just stop working. Whether it’s because we’re off the grid in the wilderness, or in the middle of a natural disaster, our lives have become dependant on being able to communicate with one another and when outages happen, we tend to freak out. GoTenna is a device that connects to a smartphone and allows it to communicate with another GoTenna-connected phone, even when you have no service. It uses low-frequency radio waves to transmit low-density data over long distances, which in ideal conditions can give you a 50.5 miles range. You can send texts to one another, or share locations so you can find your loved ones even when everyone around you is desperately trying to use their cellphones to do the same. You can even send encrypted messages to one another which aren’t stored anywhere.

It’s a powerful device with tons of features and we feel it completely warrants the $150/pair asking price. That’s the pre-order rate, which is expected to go up to $300 for a pair once it fully hits retail distribution. It ships in late Fall 2014.

Tikker Is A Watch That Counts Down Your Life

tikker-watch

We’re all gonna kick the bucket, sooner or later. And while some of us are aware that every passing minute is precious, others might need a more visual reminder. The Tikker wristwatch pictured above serves as a powerful expression that your time on this planet is limited, and it does this by displaying not the actual time of day, but how long you have left to live. The way it works involves answering a questionnaire (probably to determine your likely life span), and deducting your current age from the result.

Aside from doing its duty as a powerful symbol of your mortality, it’s also a statement to others that you take life seriously and intend to make the most of it.

We’re not sure whether Tikker also displays the actual time of day, but we’re going to go ahead and assume it does. A $39 pledge will get you one.

Fan Of Reading? Amazon Launches Kindle Unlimited

KU_featureDoc_top_header._V347166684_

If you’re on this website reading the words rather than just looking at the pretty pictures, there’s a chance you’re also into reading other stuff. Like, you know, books. Amazon has recently announced the launch of Kindle Unlimited. For $9.99 a month, you’ll have unlimited access to their entire library of digital books, more than 600,000 strong. Additionally, you’ll receive a 3-month membership to Audible, where you have access to yet another library of professionally narrated audiobooks. This works across devices, and not just on the Kindle family of products. That means tablets, cellphones, and even computers.

The kick in the nuts, however, is that if you’re not living in the states, you’re out of luck for the moment. Still, the company claims to have plans to expand the service, so stay tuned.

So This Guy Turned His Shower Head Into a Girl…

lady-shower-head-sadness-1

The title says it all. A man who goes by the handle ARuFa was bored and lonely, so he embarked on a small DIY project to transform his shower head into something more…personal, weird, and downright creepy. As you can see, he built a girl right over his shower, for lack of a better word.

With a mask, acrylic paint, some newspapers, and duct tape, ARuFA created the face. He completes the look with a wig, a pair of balloons which are stuffed into a hastily put-together body that’s dressed in flimsy lingerie. Either he was really bored or…really bored.

Hit the break to check out in-the-making pictures of the sort-of human shower head.Continue Reading

Record Anonymous Video Confessions With the ‘Awkward’ App

'Awkward' App_001

Got something that you want to say out loud, but can’t because it’s something that’s meant to be kept private? Then download the Awkward app and start filming. It’s an app that lets you record blurred video confessions so you can get them off your chest without compromising your identity.

Created by Redcyan, Awkward lets users film themselves for up to ten seconds. It then provides options for the degree of blurriness that the user wants his or her video to be. They can also opt for zero blur, if they’re ready to let the world (or whoever uses the app) about their deepest, darkest secrets. After the videos are uploaded, they can be embedded to websites and shared via email and social media.

Awkward can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store.
