Eyeball Bowling Ball: All Eyes on the Pins

Eyeball Bowling Ball

 

So you probably shouldn’t get this particular bowling ball if you don’t want all eyes in the bowling alley on you. The Eyeball bowling ball is unusual, even grotesque, and it’ll make some people lose their lunch, what with the veins and red stuff behind the cornea and all. But if you’re the king of pins and don’t mind the attention that using this ball will get you, then by all means, get it and give it your best shot.

The Eyeball bowling ball is available online for $140.

Telephoto MegaFon Loudspeaker Lets You “Yell” at One Person Only

Telephoto MegaFon

So near, yet so far. You might be able to see the person you want to talk to, but the din of the outside world won’t allow him to hear your voice. That and the fact that what you want to keep your message private makes yelling out of the question. Addressing this first world problem is Fuji Xerox.

After a lot of detailed R&D, they’ve created the Telephoto Megafon which is basically a targeted megaphone of sorts. The 3D-printed gadget will let the user “speak” to someone far away by simply pointing the Megafon towards that person.

SwivelCard is the Smartest Business Card Ever

swivelCard

Business cards just got smarter with swivelCard. At the outset, they look like typical cards. But fold it in half and push the tab at the bottom out, and it transforms into a fully-functional USB drive. The storage capacity is small, but you don’t really need more than a few kilobytes as it only serves to direct the recipient of the card to your website or portfolio.

The QR code on the back of the card makes it mobile friendly, too, in case the one who has the card doesn’t have a laptop or access to a computer at the moment.

Smart, isn’t it?

Windcatcher Air Pakk: Carry Stuff and Sleep On It

Windcatcher Air Pakk

So you’re tired and feel like taking a nap in the middle of nowhere. You’ll have no problem getting comfortable with the Windcatcher Air Pakk, as it’s a backpack that doubles as a pillow when you need one the most. It also transforms into a seat pad so you can sit in comfort, even when you’re seated on the floor or on rough surfaces that might not be very tush-friendly.

As if that’s not enough, the Air Pakk also turns into a sleeping pad when you really need to catch some Zzz’s and there’s no bed in sight. The coolest part is that the bag self-inflates, so you don’t have to lug around a pump, or worse, have to inflate it manually.

A Different Kinda Dinosaur: Tricera Hi-Tops

Tricera Hi-Tops

You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate the awesomeness of the Tricera Hi-Tops. Aside from the uber-clever name, it’s a fun take on the typical hi-tops that you see in stores these days. The shoe features the head of a triceratops in all it’s three-horned splendor. Remember Cera from the Land Before Time? Yeah, she was a triceratops.

The shoes feature a Velcro closure, so they’re perfect for lazy folks who just want to slip their feet into their sneakers and go about their day without having to ever tie their laces.

Prehistoric Cycling: Homemade Raptor Three-Wheeler

Raptor Bicycle

Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they will live on forever in the imaginations of folks like you, me, and Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. His latest creation is this raptor three-wheel bike that makes it look like the cyclist is riding on the raptor. It’s bulkier than the average bike, that’s for sure, but its awesomeness more than makes up for it.

To support the extra weight, Markus added another wheel on the front, because dinosaur’s are anything but light, you know. Even fake ones. Check out more shots of the raptor bike after the break.

Sushi Socks: Looks Yummy Rolled Up and On Your Feet

Sushi Socks

 

These delicious pieces of sushi might just knock your socks off–literally, because you’re supposed to pull them over your feet and wear them, not eat them. Each one features a sushi pattern that doesn’t look too out there when they’re on your feet, so you shouldn’t be afraid to wear them, even if you’re not big on colorful clothing or socks with loud patterns.

It’s a completely different story when the Sushi Socks are all rolled up and folded in your sock drawer, though, because they look just like delicious sushi!

The sushi detail is knitted into the sock with colored thread instead of being printed. Seven versions are available: Masuzushi (trout sushi), Shrimp, Octopus, Red Caviar, Tuna, Salmon, and Egg.

The Sushi Socks are available for $5.39 a pair.

There’s Nothing Puzzling About This Rubik’s Cube Mini Fridge

Rubik’s Cube Mini Fridge I’ve never mastered the skill of solving Rubik’s cubes, but there should be nothing puzzling about this Rubik’s Cube mini fridge. It’s basically a larger-than-life version of a typical (unsolved) Rubik’s cube. Pull on the discrete handle at the side to reveal the insides of the fridge that can fit up to nine cans of stacked soda cans.

Of course, the exterior doesn’t actually turn, so it will remain unsolved forever–or until you replace it. The fridge also comes with a warm and cool setting, so you can use it to keep stuff like leftovers warm and drinks cool.
