Scrub and Dance: Octaloofah is a Massager, Loofah, and Speaker In One

Octaloofah

This eight-legged thing is about to become your best bathtime bud. It’s the Octaloofah and it was built with one thing in mind: to make each and every bath a pleasure for you. The device is a loofah, massager, and Bluetooth speaker in one. Use it to scrub the grime from your body, hit the massage function to de-stress, and turn the volume up to play your favorite tunes while you shower.

It seems like a strange trio of features to have in one gadget, but somehow the Octaloofah is trying to make that work.

Princess Leia Ladies’ Fleece Robe

Now This is Handy: Hair Drying Gloves

Hair Drying Gloves

These look like your average pair of gloves, but they weren’t made to keep your hands warm and toasty. Instead, a pair of these might soon replace your regular old towels. They’re made from a unique micro-weave fabric that’s super absorbent, so all you have to do is slip them on and run your gloved hands through your hair to dry ‘em.

The gloves will dry your hair twice as fast versus a towel, and gives you tousled hair for a fun ‘do.

They’re available online for $19.95.

Fresh Air Plus Does Away With Nasty Smells After You Do a Number Two

Fresh Air Plus

There’s nothing pleasant about poop. Not it’s smell, not it’s appearance, not it’s texture–nothing. There’s little you can do about most of these without having to change your diet, save for the smell, because you can actually minimize it (well, sort of) if you get one of these Fresh Air Plus units. It’s basically a fan that’s specially designed to fit your toilet bowl.

When you sit on it, a sensor triggers the unit’s fan to turn on, which subsequently filters out the nasty smells of poop through a hose and out of the bowl. This way, the smell won’t overwhelm your senses by the time you’re ready to flush.

TowlHub Holds Paper Towels, Charges Phones

Towlhub

 

It’s a towel holder, it’s a charging hub–no, it’s the TowlHub and it’s actually both. Everyone needs a holder for paper towels because it’s just inconvenient to use them without one. At the same time, people use their mobile devices so much that they need to be recharged every day (or a couple of times a day, if they’re really used that much.)

So presto: instead of being just one or the other, the TowlHub combines both so you can make the most out of your space and your towel holder. Win-win.

The TowlHub retails for $49.99.

Viteo Shower: Shower From the Ground Up

Viteo-Shower

 

Step out into your garden and into the Viteo Shower to stay cool, even under the summer sun. It’s too nice outdoors to stay cooped up in your room. And because it can get too hot for comfort, it makes sense to have something like this out on your lawn so you can cool down when you need to.

You can switch the sprinklers on and step into their inconsistent spray–or hook the Viteo Shower up to a hose and step onto it to get rained on from the ground up. Your body weight sets of the Viteo’s shower jets, so water gushes up from below and over your head before falling once more like drops of rain.

The Viteo Shower is available online for €750 (about $850.)

Dry In 30 Seconds: Body Dryer Eliminates Need to Towel Off

Body Dryer

So this gadget right here that looks almost like a weighing scale (oh wait, it actually also happens to be one!) could get rid of towels once and for all. Aptly called the Body Dryer, it promises to dry you off in half a minute or less, which is way faster than you could ever dry yourself off with a towel.

The Body Dryer has been in development for over two years, creator Tyler Overk explains. He adds: “We realized that there’s so many germs, so much bacteria that we’re reusing and putting back onto our bodies after we’ve cleaned ourselves from the shower or even coming out of the pool. We came up with eliminating towels.”

Lather Up in Imaginary Riches With BitCoin-Inspired BitSoaps

Bitsoaps

 

You can’t hold Bitcoins in your hands but you can lather up a storm with BitSoaps. The two are in no way affiliated with each other; one is an a cryptocurrency you can actually spend, while the other one is a giant coin-shaped soap that comes in three variants.

BitSoaps are made by an enterprising young couple who were “fascinated by [the] concept and versatile utility” of the Bitcoin currency. So they decided to jump on its popularity and come up with soaps inspired by it. On their website, they explain: “Our love for nature and passion for exciting endeavors has drawn us to creating this project. A project that merged environmental mindfulness and digital currency. Marrying these polarized ideas has, therefore, given birth to BitSoaps.”

There are three kinds of BitSoaps to choose from: Bitcoin Hemp Oil Soap Bar, Bitcoin Valentines Lavender Hemp/Castile Soap Bar, and Litecoin Castile Soap Bar. Each coin–er, bar–is priced at $4.42.

His and Hers: Star Wars Han and Leia Hand Towels

Star Wars Han and Leia Bathroom Hand Towels

 

There’s nothing like love that transcends borders. Kind of like the one Princess Leia and Han Solo share. Back in 2005, Lucas confirmed that Leia and Han did, indeed, live happily ever after. That’s something everyone already assumed, but still, it was nice to get confirmation. Now you can be reminded of that fact every day with these Han and Leia Hand Towels that’ll add a little extra something in your bathroom.

These soft towels have silhouettes of Leia and Han on one side and the Rebel Alliance insignia on the other side. It isn’t complete without the Star Wars logo, so you’ll find that in the corner. You’ve always said it with roses; why not declare your love with towels this year?
