The Great Shark Knife: Looks Good, Cuts Through More Than Just Water

Shark Knife

 

So this is the shark knife. The things that you can do with it are limited, but the awesomeness of how it looks strapped onto your arm might just make up for it. The knife features an array of razor sharp blades arranged and positioned this way and that. Clearly, its maker valued aesthetics more than function and safety, but that’s probably the whole point of coming up with something like the shark knife in the first place. If the wearer isn’t careful, it looks like he’s walking away with a cut or two care of his very own knife…

You can’t buy a shark knife, but you can make your own.

Launching Spitballs In 3, 2, 1: Leonardo da Vinci Catapult Kit

Leonardo da Vinci Catapult Kit

 

You’re too old for spitballs, but you’ll never be too old for a miniature catapult. The fact that said catapult can be used to lob super wet spitballs at your worst frenemies is just a plus. Not everyone possesses a knack for design or carpentry, but the Leonardo da Vinci Catapult Kit has got you covered. It comes with all the stuff you need to assemble one of your very own.

Just pull out all the pre-cut parts, use the included glue to stick one part to the other (don’t worry, instructions are included) and you’ll have your very own mini catapult in no time. You didn’t have one as a kid so at least that’s one childhood fantasy fulfilled. It’s available online for $28.

Ghastlier As They Burn: Melting Zombie Candles

Melting Zombie Candles

With these ghastly candles, you’ll be able to hit two birds with one stone. First of all, they’re candles, so when the power’s out, just light ‘em up for some much-needed illumination. Second of all, the design is just perfect for Halloween: bloody zombies with bulging eyes and disfigured faces that ups the creepy factor at your place.

And as they melt–boy, oh boy, they’ll look even creepier than they already are. The candles are handmade and you can get them from Stexe’s Etsy shop for $15 each. Creepy doesn’t come cheap.

Scorpion Chair Is Very Scorpion-y

scorpion-chair-1

Thats a sick looking chair if we’ve ever seen one. Made by painter, sculptor, and woodcarver Vyacheslav Pakhomov. If the translation on his website is correct, it does seem to be available for purchase for the relatively modest sum of 230000 Russian Rubles, which translates to about $5,730 USD. Considering the amount of work that must’ve gone into something like this, evil hell Lords in the making should immediately go check if they have the available funds before it’s sold.

Because You’re Super: Batmobile Slippers

Batmobile slippers

 

Real men wear pink…and plush slippers. Okay, so I made the last part up, but who can resist these adorkable Batmobile slippers? I’m sure even Christian Bale can’t. They’re fashioned after the Batmobile featured in the 1989 Batman movie. Granted, it’s not as sleek or tech-heavy as the Batmobiles of the recent past, but the Dark Knight’s 1989 ride is easily one of the most recognizable.

The best part? They do just what they promise to do: keep your feet warm and comfy. The Batmobile slippers are currently on sale and you can get your very own pair for just $16.

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
