Steampunk Light Switch

Are you still into Steampunk, the retro-futuristic Victorian-era-inspired aesthetic that was all the rage a couple years ago? Well, have we ever got a light switch for you. It fits over most standard wall switches in the USA; just unscrew the plate cover and screw this one in instead.

My lever system has a bolt and nut design that allows you to adjust the amount of torque needed to flip the lights on and off. Your purchase comes with a small, matching wrench to help you adjust the bolts. It also comes with a steel spacer plate that ensures a tight seal against the wall and also prevents wobbling and unsightly gaps.

This design is compatible with toggle switches. If you have a dimmer or rocker switch, I can include a 15A-120V toggle switch with your order at no extra charge.

It’s actually made from plasma cut steel, which makes it look and feel more authentic. And by the way, if your home has more of an industrial feel (the grown up version of steampunk), it’ll work just as well there. It’s $65.

Another Use for Trolls: Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot

Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot


Remember those troll dolls that you used to collect back in the nineties? Well, they’re back in the form of these Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots, and they’re greener than ever. The makers of the pots have removed their signature mop of neon hair to make way for a living “wig” that you’re supposed to provide.

Looks like trolls have found a new use–and a new hairstyle in the process! Mother Nature would approve.

The Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots are sold for $35.

Here’s A Pretty Spice Rack


No one is going to get excited over a spice rack, let’s be honest. But if you’re in the middle of decorating a new home, you’ve probably realized that God is indeed in the details. While you might have spent a ridiculous sum on that chandelier, or that fancy stainless steel talking fridge, you’ll be sad if you can’t store your spices in a way that does them justice. For this reason, we kind of like the Cylindra Spice Rack:

A modular spice rack that can be freely placed on any counter or mounted on the wall, its petridish-like cover allows you to load spices cleanly or pinch as you like. A movable band in the middle slides smoothly to sprinkle a bit–or a lot–of flavour, as you place your cylinder on its perimeter.

And that’s enough said about this item. It’s $15.

Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Door Decal


You can’t help but be amazed at the longevity that the Star Wars franchise has, especially in the merchandise department. Granted, it’s partly because of people like us who constantly go on about all the things you can buy and who keep the brand alive, but we only do it because it still resonates with our readers. Take the above Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Door Decal for example. It’s a life-size $140 sticker that you place on your door. And we bet some of you are going to think “hey, that’s pretty cool!” Matter of fact, we don’t even hate it; we’re just impressed that 36 years after the first film came out people are still buying this stuff. Whether that’s a testament to how good the movies were or about how effective a marketing effort the folks at ILS (or whoever is behind this movement) are making, we’re not going to speculate. All we can do is tell you a bit more about this sticker and move on: it’s repositionable, and is finished in matte but you can ask for it to be done glossy.

One-Of-A-Kind Web Of Plastic Caps Turns Bottles Into Fancy Vase


As the technology matures, we’re starting to see an increase in 3D printed products hitting the market. It’s usually stuff you wouldn’t normally find in a store, but since these things don’t exist until you order the, they don’t take up valuable shelf or storage space. That’s how the Screw You Vase came into existence. It’s a matrix of 12 PET plastic bottle caps that accommodate standard bottles. The caps have a hole at the top, so once you’ve inserted your bottles, filled them with water and popped a flower in each, you’ve got yourself a unique vase that none of your friends is likely to have. Granted, you’re going to have to spend a pretty penny to get this, $150 to be exact, but we suppose that’s what happens with a time-consuming process like 3D printing.

Awesome Chandelier Casts Creepy Forest Shadows All Over Your Room’s Walls

Forms-in-Nature The above chandelier is a “light sculpture” by designers Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz, from the design firm HildenDiaz. When the light is switched on, it casts creepy, yet awesome shadows of vines or a forest all over your walls. It’s called Forms in Nature, and was “partly inspired by Ernst Haeckel’s (1834-1919) detailed plots from nature.” And although it currently only exists as a one-off unit, there are rumours that the pair is looking into launching a Kickstarter campaign after viral interest generated a large demand for the product. Until they do, however, we don’t know how much it could possibly cost or even when it might ever be available for purchase.
