Belty Knows When to Loose or Tighten Itself, Based On Fitness Data

Belty

Just when you think that you’ve seen it all when it comes to wearables… along came Belty. It’s a smart belt with the unique “autoadaptability” feature which adjusts the belt automatically, depending on what you’re doing. That means you won’t have to tighten or loosen the belt in between activities, like say, standing up or working on something while crouched on the ground.

Belty also has a built-in fitness tracking feature which works in conjunction with your mobile device to keep track of your waistline and other stats over time.

Poop Emoji Pillow is the Crappiest Pillow Ever

Poop Emoji Pillow

So this is the Poop Emoji pillow, and it’s the crappiest pillow that you can get. Not crappy, as in, sucky, but crappy because, well, that’s what the design is all about. You use emojis all the time these days, whether it’s in emails, text messages, or instant messages, and now that they’ve crossed over into the real world via Throwboy, then why not use it as well?

It’s as cushy and comfortable as you’d expect a pillow to be. The Poop Emoji pillow retails for $19.99. Apparently, poop is popular these days, because it’s currently completely sold out.

Beagle Dog Mailbox: A Mailman’s Best Friend

Beagle Dog Mailbox

If you’ve always wanted a beagle but never got one, then here’s your change. Granted, it’s not an actual live beagle, and it’s far from being the next best thing, but hey–at least you can say you finally have one! The Beagle mailbox is definitely awesomer than your average mailbox, plus it’s a canine that’s a welcome change for your mailman.

It’s handmade, and the beagle wooden structure is basically built around a steel, standard-sized mailbox. If you’re a cat person, then there’s a Whimsical Cat mailbox that’s also available.

They’re available at Jimmy Warren’s Etsy store for $110.

Lather Up: Crystal and Geode Hand Soaps

Crystal Hand Soaps

Why do you have a rock on your sink?
Huh? What rock?
That crystal, geode, whatever–that one!
Oh, that’s just my soap, dude.

That’s one of the conversations you might find yourself having if you bin your existing hand soaps and replace them with one of these awesome crafted soaps by RockHoundSoap. They look nothing like your typical hand soap; instead, they come in all sorts of rocky shapes and formations. Go for the topaz and crystal soaps if you want to hold something fancy-looking each time you wash your hands. You can opt for the geode-inspired soaps instead if you want something plainer.

These Geeky Christmas Sweaters are Perfect for the Season

Geeky Christmas Sweatshirts

When people talk about Christmas sweaters,”ugly” isn’t too far off. However, these particular ones designed by artist Drew Wise are anything but ugly. They’ll probably even appeal to the non-geeky folks who don’t get what’s being references in the designs: Guardians of the Galaxy featuring none other than the four guardians and the scene in the beginning when Peter gets abducted; Star Wars featuring R2D2, Darth Vader, lots of Stormtroopers, and the Death Star; and Doctor Who featuring otherworldly creatures, the Doctor, and of course, TARDIS.

Hit the break to check out the rest of the designs and the actual sweaters.

Bad-Ass Illumination: Breaking Bad LookaLite

Breaking-Bad-LookaLite

Breaking Bad may have ended a couple of years ago, but the memory of it– and people’s love for the show–is still very much alive. One of Walter White’s signature looks, if you could call it that, was when he was dressed in his yellow Hazmat suit and gas mask. So it’s pretty appropriate that they chose to dress this lamp in that, and more than apt that they decided to call it a Lookalite.

It’s basically a lamp that looks like a miniature and chubbier version of Walter. In short, it’s a lookalike that happens to be a lamp, too. Clever, clever. The Breaking Bad Lookalite is available online for £19.99 (about $31.)

Nutshell Lets You Take A Break From The World

Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 9.38.25 PM

Considering products like the Cozy Room (an isolation room) exist, it’s tempting to think the world is becoming increasingly hectic, enough so to warrant physical separation from your surroundings. And perhaps it is, so we won’t pass judgement on the Nutshell. It’s a simple… tent that unfolds around the upper portion of your body and allows you so block out the outside world. The visual part, anyway. With it, you can read a book even in a crowded hallway while pretending to be alone. You can take a break from having to interact with people, and you know, socialize. We sound critical, but we’re really not; it’s just a difficult need for us to wrap our heads around, but we acknowledge and respect the fact some may legitimately want this. Sadly, it doesn’t look like you can actually buy Nutshell. It’s the project of New York’s School of Visual Arts design student Eden Lew, and isn’t being commercialized.
