For the Person Who Transformed You: Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Bumblebee is one of the most beloved Autobots from the Transformers franchise. He was the one of the first bots that we were introduced to in the first movie. It’s also worth mentioning that he’s been in every one of the movies, and that’s saying something, seeing as how Michael Bay doesn’t think twice about killing off some of the bots to get a point across.

That said, it makes perfect sense to feature Bumblebee on a Transformers-inspired ring–not only for his marketability, but for his bright and aesthetically-pleasing design. That and the fact that he turns into a snazzy Camaro seals the deal for me. The ring features Bumblebee’s playful mug right smack in the middle of an adorable sterling silver and gold-plated band.

It’s available from CustomMade for $299.

Leatherdos: Every Tool a Girl Needs That She Can Wear on Her Hair

Leatherdos Multitool Clip

This might just be the one accessory girls (and dudes with long hair) can’t live without: the Leatherdos. It’s a typical hair clip that can keep bangs and stray hair away from your face. It also happens to be a one-of-a-kind multitool that can do more than what you’d expect to be able to do with a hair accessory.

Designed by industrial design student Yaacov Goldberg, the Leatherdos packs in a wrench, screw driver, ruler, mini saw, and trolley coin. When you need to tighten a screw or measure something, just unclip and use as you please.

You Need One: ‘Doctor Who’ Sonic Screwdriver Bottle Opener

Sonic Screwdriver Bottle Opener

When it’s not TARDIS, it’s the Sonic Screwdriver. These are two things you’ll find the Doctor constantly reaching for in times of need or whenever he feels like it. You won’t be able to get your own real-life time travel machine, but you can buy a replica of the king of all multitools that does one thing and one thing only: open your bottles of soda and beer.

Having a bottle opener that looks like the Doctor’s screwdriver might be a bit of an overkill, but it’s an awesome thing to behold that’ll make you the envy of your friends every time they come over for drinks. Plus, you can totally use it as a prop when you do cosplays or when you want to dress as the Doctor at a costume party.

The Sonic Screwdriver bottle opener retails for $24.

You’ve Got Time On Your Hands: Ritot Projection Watch

Ritot Projection Watch

Why sport a plain, old, boring analog watch when you get can something like the Ritot? Instead of reading the time on its face or having it displayed on a digital display, the Ritot projects the current time on the back of your hand. It’s kind of like what those people from that movie called In Time had, only it displayed the amount of time they had left to live rather than the current time of day.

With the Ritot, you also don’t have to worry about people getting into your personal space anymore when they’re asking you for the time. Simply stretch your hand out and let them check it for itself. Aside from the time, Ritot also gives you access to your text messages, called ID, Facebook feed, Twitter updates, and many others.

Happy Poo Happily Takes the Place of Your Plunger

Happy Poo

It happens every so often to each and every human being around the planet. After taking a particularly large (and satisfying) dump, the toilet decides that it’s way too big for it to handle and before you know it, the entire thing is clogged. If you’re not a huge fan of the plunger–I mean, who is?–then here’s an alternative for you: the Happy Poo.

It’s a disposable seat cover of sorts that attempts to let you “re-flush” the toilet when it’s clogged without having to use a plunger. Just peel it off from the protective backing, make sure it’s attached all around to the seat, flushed, and press down.

Disposable E-Cigarette is the Next Best Thing to a Cigarette

disposable E-cigarette_001

E-cigarettes are one alternative for people who want to ease off smoking or for those who want to keep smoking without all the negative effects that come with it. Somewhere in between real cigarettes and e-cigarettes are the YJ4931 disposable e-cigarettes by the FirstUnion Group. The company has dubbed it the “world’s first long-lasting disposable e-cigarette” and claims that it can provide up to 400 puffs.

The disposable e-cigarettes utilize new battery materials with a new circuit controller and provides ultra-thick vapor, even under low voltage. The design itself replicates the typical look of most cigarettes. Continue Reading
