Stylish Concrete Ping Pong Table Looks Cool, Will Cost You An Arm and a Leg

Stylish Concrete Ping Pong Table

 

 

Playing ping pong on concrete? That should be nothing new–but we don’t mean playing on a concrete floor. No, we’re talking about playing on a concrete table! Designer James de Wulf has built a name for himself when it comes to concrete furniture, and now he’s built what could be the world’s first concrete ping pong table.

From the legs to the tabletop, the entire thing is made from concrete– except for the net, of course. The price? A whopping $9,320. Not exactly sure if concrete makes ping pong tougher to play or not, but make sure to bring lots of extra balls.

Giant Sausage Pillow: Sweet Dreams are Made of Meat

Giant Sausage Pillow

You probably should avoid this pillow at all costs if you’re on a diet or trying to go vegan. As its name implies, the giant sausage pillow is just that: a larger-than-life pillow that looks like a delicious grilled sausage. Isn’t your mouth watering already? Put one on your couch, on your bed, or on the floor–wherever you might feel like snuggling against it, actually.

Its makers were able to make the print look so realistic by using a special sublimation technique after shaping the pillow into a giant, bent sausage.

Dining In Your Skivvies: Lapkins are Napkins for Your Lap

Lapkins

 

Lapkins are for your lap, while napkis are for your naps…er, okay, so that’s not quite how it works for the latter. Both actually serve the same function, since lapkins are basically napkins with a quirky design. And by quirky, we mean images of underwear, so it’ll look like you’re dining with nothing but your skivvies on.

They’re sold in sets of 24 and feature three designs: a pair of men’s briefs, ladies’ undies, and a fig leaf for the daring. The Lapkins are available for $14.

Portable is a Flexible, Wearable Smartphone

Portal Wearable Smartphone

You don’t have to worry about Bendgate with the Portal, because its makers let you know upfront that it bends and is definitely more flexible than your average smartphone. The Portable was designed to be a wearable phone, so it should bend to follow the natural curve of your arm. It’s also shatterproof and waterproof for up to 10 meters, so you can wear it even when you’re hard at work or play.

Portal is built with a multicore CPU that comes with 2GB of RAM. Its 3200 mAh battery is also flexible, as expected, and can last for up to 8 hours of talktime. Continue Reading

Suitsy Looks Sharp But Is as Comfy as Your Pajamas

Suitsy

 

Get rid of those sweatshirts and jeans and pull on the Suitsy instead. It’ll instantly transform your look from drab to dapper because, really, what guy looks bad in a suit? But let’s backtrack a little as to how it came to be.

Regular suits are far from being comfortable, which is something real estate expert Jesse Herzog knows firsthand. After wearing suits for 10 years, which was expect of him because of his job, he decided to make something that looks just as sharp minus the discomfort. That’s when Suitsy came into the picture.

A Drumstick For Your Ear? KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

 

KFC Japan is at it again. Remember the chicken keyboard and mouse they recently offer to their patrons? It looks like their higher-ups decided that that wasn’t enough, so they came up with the drumstick iPhone cover. It’s so ridiculous that it almost makes you want one, just for the heck of it. Even Colonel Sanders looks like he’s rolling on the floor laughing like there’s no tomorrow (in case you’re wondering, his speech bubble says something along the lines of “Why is it so big?”)

Well, that’s what we’re wondering, too. The only way to get one of the cases was to win it from KFC Japan. Dang, that’s a huge case. Ironically, it’s making me not want to eat chicken after looking at it.

Clever Candle Holder

tealight-candle-holder-with-match-slot-0

Oh, this is probably as old as the world. But had you seen it before? We hadn’t, we think it’s pretty cool, so we’ll tell you about it and you can direct your “Your stuff is stale as day-old farts!” comments to our legal department (hint: it doesn’t exist). Although, really, there’s not much to say. It’s a candle holder with an opening so you can light it with a match without burning your fingers or being forced to light the candle first and then having to insert it while hoping it doesn’t tilt around too much and extinguish (we get stressed out by simple tasks). It’s $16, which is probably too much, but we’re not about to start looking for another, cheaper purchase link.

3D Printed James Harden Flash Drive: Pull Beard to Access Data

James Harden Flash Drive

If you’re a fan of the Houston Rockets, then you probably know who that USB–er, guy–up there is supposed to be. He’s James Harden and he’s an NBA player known for his foundational type of play. He’s also known for his ever-present bear. He probably won’t be shaving it off soon, but you can remove his beard anytime with this fun and cleverly designed Harden flash drive.

At first glance, it looks like a mere miniature model of Harden. But pull the beard and you’ll see that it’s actually a USB drive. Clever, clever.

Cowabunga! Ninja Turtles Hoodies are Awesome

Ninja Turtles Hoodie0

The hare was always cooler than the turtle…until the teenage mutant ninja turtles came along, that is. If you’ve got TMNT fever and haven’t gotten over Michael Bay’s recent reboot, then here’s something you might want to add to your wardrobe: the Ninja Turtles hoodie that gives you your very own shell…or, well, lets you wear one anyway.

The best part is the hood with the mask fleece appliques. Since the mask is red, you’ll be dressing up as Raph.Continue Reading
