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

Mega Hammock: Now You Can Chill With the Whole Gang

Mega Hammock_001

 

What can beat lying on a hammock on a warm summer’s day with a cold drink in hand and not a care in the world? Doing the same thing but with your friends, that’s what! Most people don’t have enough hammocks (or trees to hang the hammocks on) in their backyards to accommodate everyone in the gang, but that’s what the Mega Hammock is for.

It’s huge enough to fit up to three people, but a few more can probably squeeze in as it has a total weight rating of a thousand pounds. The lying surface measures 8 feet by 5 feet, so as long as you have a big empty space out back, then this should fit. The hammock is made from handcrafted from coated ripstop nylon by an FAA-certified parachute rigger, so you’re assured of its quality and durability.

The Mega Hammock retails for $375.

Mean Cards Unfold to Reveal Heartwarming Messages

Mean Cards_001

Sometimes, things aren’t always as they seem. A book with a boring cover might be the most interesting piece of literature ever written. A tough-looking guy might actually be the kindest, most soft-spoken guy you’ll ever meet. Cards with mean messages on the front might unfold to reveal words of wisdom and messages that’ll warm even the coldest of hearts.

The latter is what Etsy Shop FINCHandHare have created. Snarky, even rude, messages are printed on the front. However, once the card is unfolded, the true message is revealed to its recipient.

Where’s Waldo? Somewhere On This Shirt

Where's Waldo Shirt

 

Where oh where could Waldo be? Most of the time, it takes a lot of persistence and a sharp eye to spot Waldo from among the crowd on a page in one of his books. But what about on this oh-so-colorful shirt inspired by none other than Waldo? Waldo can be found (or rather, searched for) in all sorts of places around the world.

This time around, Waldo takes his adventure underwater, given that the shirt is blue and all. It doesn’t help that red-and-white stripes are everywhere–from the fishing boats to fishes and numerous dudes sporting the striped pants.

Up for the challenge? You can get one of these shirts for $22 from 80s Tees.

Need a Job? Brew Some Resume-Ale!

Resum-Ale

 

Traditional resumes just don’t cut it anymore. Oftentimes, those who get the job are the ones with credentials that stand out from the rest. However, aside from qualifications, here’s one other thing that you could do to up your chances of getting hired: come up with an unusual or creative resume that’ll get people talking. You know, like interactive resumes that play out like a game or LEGO resumes that you can build, brick by brick.

And then there’s Brennan Gleason’s Resum-ale. It’s a resume that comes in the form of a four-pack of the graphic designer’s special homebrew, something that prospective bosses will love for sure. Brennan explains: “I’ve seen beef jerky business cards and really weird stuff like that. So, I really wanted to do something along those lines.”

Weird? Yes. Cool? Definitely. So weird and cool it was that Brennan landed a job as a result with a Vancouver-based digital marketing agency. Sounds like a good fit, doesn’t it?
