Slap ‘Em and Wear ‘Em: Slap Band Sunglasses

Slap Band Sunglasses

Remember those slap bands of the nineties? They’re making a comeback– well, sort of — with the Slap Band Sunglasses. As the name implies, it’s unique because it has slap bands that serve as the temples of the frame. Aside from the novelty and nostalgic factor, having slap bands attached to your shades actually makes carrying them around more convenient. In fact, you won’t have to carry them around because you can just wear it.

The Slap Band Sunglasses are available for £19.99 (~about $31.)

I Do: Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring


Would you say yes to this? This Doctor Who-inspired TARDIS engagement ring will make most girls happy (provided the right man is asking), but it’ll make Whovians over the moon with joy because it’s, well, a TARDIS ring. The double band is generously studded with diamonds, while the miniature TARDIS itself is covered in blue sapphires and even more diamonds.

The design, which was originally posted on Etsy, has since been sold, but fret not. You should be able to ask your jeweller to come up with an inspired design, if you want one.

Cup Of Wine On The Beach? Unthinkable Until You Get ‘The Beach Glass’


All roads lead to Rome, and it’s true that you can choose to get drunk any way you want; in the end you’re just as drunk. But there’s a certain appearance of class that comes with drinking wine out of a wine glass. Good luck projecting that “sophisticated” image while on the beach tough, unless of course you get yourself a Beach Glass. It’s all “Wine cup up top, and bloody spike at the bottom” so that all you have to do to keep your drink upright is to stab it in the sand. It’s a simple design, and with summer in full swing we suspect it’ll be popular with the beach bums among you. Of course, if it works in the sand, it’ll work in other surfaces like snow, grass, dirt, or anything that can get stabbed. It’s $10.50 for one.

Boomerang Wok Helps You Keep Your Food From Flying Around


It’s entirely possible that you stopped yourself from ever making any recipes that required sautéing, like many Asian dishes, because you were worried about ending up with all your food on the floor. There is a certain technique to tossing your stuff around in a hot pan, and we can’t entirely blame you for being afraid. But look at the Boomerang Wok! Doesn’t it make you want to give it another shot? The special cupped edge lets you turn food with a simple push of the pan, making sure that whatever gets tossed in the air always lands back inside. The Teflon-coated surface is non-stick, and the whole thing can go in the over at temperatures up to 320F. It’s a little on the expensive side however, at $133. At that price, we might be tempted to make an effort at actually learning how to stir-fry properly.

Brick Lamp Doesn’t Have An On/Off Switch


The Brick Lamp is an intriguing looking lamp with a minimalist design whose main “feature” appears to be the absence of a power switch. Instead, you turn the bright LED light on by placing it on its side, and turn it off by placing it face down. Integrated batteries provide up to 5 hours of use on a charge, while a charging cable lets you run the lights indefinitely. It’s great as a desk lamp, night light, or any other type of light that has to be directed at an angle down onto a surface, or straight up at the ceiling. One version is “made from a special mix of cement and fine grain sands. It is cast in a high quality rubber mold to create a super fine and smooth finish”, while the other is made from “an authentic single piece of wood lumber, coated with an all natural eco-friendly clear stain to give it an elegant finish.” They’re meant to look good, while providing a modicum of function, and you can get the concrete version for a $120 pledge, while the wood version will set you back $145.

Circular Skates “From The Future”


Now that it’s 2015 and it’s clear we won’t be getting in our hoverboards anytime soon, maybe we can start thinking about some other futuristic-looking alternatives to our current skates and rolling boards. The Sidewinding Circular Skates are some people’s idea of what that might look like, except they’re available now… and they’ll make you look like a tool. But hey, we don’t judge:

These are the annular skates that are propelled by leaning side to side, allowing you to skateboard without having to push off the ground. Riders simply place their feet on the two platforms and lean side-to-side to rotate the rubber wheels around the feet, propelling riders forward in a serpentine motion similar to longboard skateboarding. Since the wheels are not connected, riders can easily perform 720° spins and turn on a dime, while stopping is achieved by placing toes on the ground. The wheels are 10″ in diameter, allowing them to traverse short grass and dirt surfaces.

There’s an included rod with which you can join the wheels and stabilize them to make your learning experience easier. And to be honest, we imagine we’d need that rod if we were trying to learn to ride these; “placing our toes on the ground” as a method for stopping sound like a few broken bones waiting to happen. If you like to live dangerously, it’ll cost you $100 to own.

A Collapsible Bike Helmet, For Your Convenience


Despite your brain being protected by nothing more than a slim bony shell that tends to fracture if you knock it a little too hard, plenty of cyclists still opt to ride without a helmet. It’s somewhat understandable, given their bulk. But the Closca Fuga Black collapsible helmet offers a potential alternative that might sway those who would wear protection if only it would fit in their bags.

The helmet is made of three circular shell components, which fold down and nest inside each other to make a package that fits inside a bag. According to manufacturer Closca, the helmet has passed certification in Europe, Canada and the States, thanks to a combination of polystyrene and polycarbonate in the shell.

The helmet even features hidden air vents, so you won’t overheat in the hot summer sun. It’s not necessarily the prettiest thing to look at, but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in convenience and protection. It’ll set you back €72.00 ($77USD), with shipping in Spring.
