Watch What Happens When This DeLorean iPhone Case Reaches 88mph

back-to-the-future-delorean-iphone-case-1

Remember that Batmobile iPhone case from a week ago? Well, retailer Bandai is back with another cool case, and this time it’s a DeLorean. Right in time for 2015’s BTTF2 “future”, the case lights up when you get a call, and various ports let you access common buttons as well as create an opening for the camera. So that means your phone will remain mostly functional while you can still proclaim to the world “well, damn, I may not have a hoverboard like I was promised, but at least I got my DeLorean phone.” Which is totally not something anyone would say, and is just filler fluff we had to write because there’s really not much else to say about the $50 case.

“It’s a $50 DeLorean iPhone 6 case that lights up and stuff.”

That would have done it.

Walter White Would Be Proud Of This Breaking Bad Fries-enberg Mr. Potato Head

potato

Recently shown off at the NYC Toy Fair, the Mr. Potato Head Fries-enberg is the perfect toy to get… well, not your kids, that’s for sure. Well… maybe your young kids were allowed to Watch Breaking Bad so it might not be that inappropriate for them, but we like to think this particular toy offers more appeal to the grown-ups who have an appreciation for the famed TV franchise, and who still carry a bit of youthfulness in their hearts. You can of course argue about the ethics of having a potato head also be a meth dealer, but we imagine you’re not supposed to overthink this $25 purchase, which will be shipping in April and is available for pre-order now.

Hasbro To Launch A Make-Your-Own Line Of Lightsabers

do-it-yourself-lightsaber-kits

It’s pretty clear there’s a new Star Wars movie in the works because the merchandising machine is starting to run full steam. Hasbro has announced a cool line of lightsaber toys that can be customized in many ways, allowing children young and old alike to create lightsabers that are as weird as they’d be potentially lethal to the person who wields them.

The main Jedi Master Lightsaber set (for ages 4 and up, $49.99 includes a lightsaber with lights and electronic sounds, a pair of lightdaggers, an expansion hilt and a variety of connectors.

From there, kids can mIx and match from three other assortments with connectors and lightsaber blades tied to various characters. The electronic lightsaber ($19.99) comes in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker flavors, the foam lightsaber ($14.99) has Yoda, Vader and Luke variants, and the extend lightsaber ($9.99) offers something for Luke, Vader and Anakin Skywalker fans.

The line was on display at New York’s Toy Fair last week and will be launching this fall, in time for the release of the new movie in December.

Keep Your Shoes Clean With The Shifter Boot Protector

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 11.47.37 AM

Riding season is upon us, which is hard to believe considering the gargantuan amounts of snow currently on the ground. But it is, and that means you’ll have to once again start making choices about what to wear on your motorcycle. If you haven’t adopted specialized riding shoes, you might be familiar with the issue of having to pick footwear that you don’t mind getting a little dirty or scuffed where they contact the clutch lever. That concern might have limited your options before, but if you get the Shifter Boot Protector, you can just slip it over your shoe and wear any fancy boots you like without damaging them at all. It’s elastic so it will fit over any size boot and costs all of $8.

Are 49 Ports On A USB Hub Enough?

49-port-hub

Like cupholders, you apparently can never have too many ports on a USB hub, although it’s hard to see how you might ever want more than the 49 that Brando is offering. We imagine this monstrosity is aimed at IT departments who might have to charge the entire office’s inventory of phones or tablets or anything else USB-charged. It’s capable of reliably outputting 0.5A-1.5A at each port without overheating or becoming a fire hazard; you will have to purchase your own ATX power supply for it however, and it’s recommended that you get a 60A 5V supply if you hope to output 1.2A to each of the 49 ports simultaneously. And even though it is totally meant for a commercial/industrial use, at $174 it’s not entirely out of range for the home consumer.

Deal of The Day: $65 Off On Extreme Micro-Drone 2.0 w/ Camera

redesign_redesign_Microdrone_MF-3_0914

Drones, drones, drones. They’re all that anyone talks about these days, from the White House to the FAA. So, why not get in while it’s still cool? The Extreme Micro-Drone 2.0 w/ Camera is a small, easy to control quad copter drone that also happens to carry a camera. Granted, it’s not the most high-resolution camera, clocking in at 640 pixels. We’re not sure if that’s 640 X something, or 640 altogether, but it’s still better than nothing. Mind you, let us remind you that you’re looking at a drone that fits in the palm of your hand, flies up to 400 feet away for up to 8 minutes at a time, does flips and self-stabilizes, and costs less than $80. Actually with today’s deal, it’s $74.99, down from $139.

time-locking-container-640x533

If you’ve gone all Cookie Monster and are looking for a way to control the cravings, while still being able to indulge once in a while, you might want to consider the ‘Kitchen Safe: Time Locking Container’. It’s a plastic container that locks up once you’ve filled it with your favourite snacks. Simply put the food in, set the timer from 1 minute to 10 days, and lock it. It won’t open until the timer runs out, and there are no overrides! The only way you’ll get to your M&Ms is by either braking the 3X-thicker-than-a-typical-container plastic walls, or going out to buy more.

This will help you with your diet, considering you’ll be able to set a reasonable timeframe when you’re full and won’t be able to change your mind once you start getting hungry again; this is, as many of you know, the typical scenario that anyone with weight control issues faces daily. The Kitchen Safe has tons of 5-star reviews and works perfectly. The batteries last between 6 to 12 months, and it stores 3.5 quarts or about 25 ounces of stuff.

Oh, this would make Kramer proud. The Bookniture is a 13 inch coffee table “book” that unfolds into a fully functioning piece of furniture… which you can then use as a coffee table! The sturdy honeycomb structure is capable of supporting up to 375 pounds, and can serve as the aforementioned coffee table, or as a stool, a footrest, or anything else you can think of doing with a 13 inch tall cylinder. When you’re done, just close the “book” and you’re ready to go. It comes with its own felt top in various colors, and you’ll have to pledge $70 to get yours, with a delivery in May of this year.
