Office Wars: Laser-Guided Tactical Necktie is All You Need and More

Laser-guided tactical necktie

 

Be ready for anything you might encounter at the office and look spiffy to boot with the laser-guided tactical necktie. It’s basically the most bad-ass tie you can ever own, with a MOLLE system sewn right onto it with a built-in D loop. It also comes with a removable pouch that you can fill with your small but essential stuff, like a multi-tool or mints or something.

The coolest part? The second removable pouch, which houses the class II laser pointer that you can use when you’re presenting something or when you just want to mess around with the people on the other end of the room.

The tactical necktie is available online for $29.99.

Functional Decoy: Security Camera Birdfeeder

Security Camera Birdfeeder

The Security Camera Birdfeeder lets you be nice to birds and have something hanging outside your home to deter criminals and hoodlums from attempting to do something that they shouldn’t. Granted, it obviously doesn’t look real during the day, but only the foolish (or the most foolishly daring) would choose to attempt a break-in in broad daylight.

The birdfeeder is ready to hang and can hold up to 2 cups of seed for your avian buddies.Continue Reading

Donor Cable Bracelets Lets You Share Power to Those In Need

Donor Cable

So your phone’s running low on power and you forgot to bring your cable or charger (or both) with you. You’re in the middle of typing out an email for your boss or getting the hang of the game that everyone at your office is playing. Whatever it is you’re doing, you’re desperate for power. Unfortunately, nobody around you has a charger on them either. If only there were some way you could bum some power off of their phones…

Well, if you had the Donor Cable, then that’s exactly what you can do. It was distributed byAzerbaijani cellular network Nar Mobile to anyone who bought an Android phone. It starts out as a bracelet but unfolds to turn into a cable that allows you to connect your phone to someone else’s for battery power transfer.

Hadu-Coins: Street Fighter Ryu Money Box

Street Fighter Ryu Money Box

 

 

Collect spare change and make a pledge to save at least a dollar a day the fun way with the Street Fighter Ryu Money Box. It’s basically the coolest piggy bank–or is that Ryu-bank?–that features a pixelated Ryu from Street Fighter doing what he does best. Ryu’s actually in mid-Haduken but I’m sure he won’t mind if you interrupt him to put a few quarters in.

The Ryu money box is 11 centimeters tall and it would definitely look awesome on your bedside table or wherever you decide to put it. It’s available from Fancy for $16.

Strange, But It Just Might Work: Portable Folding Napkin Table

Foldable Napkin Table

 

Picnics are fun, but it’s hard to eat a decent meal without a table. That’s why most people pack finger food and sandwiches in their baskets instead to prevent any potential mess. A concept by Michael Jan, who’s an industrial design graduate from Taiwan’s Tunghai University, might soon change all that though.

Michael came up with this portable folding napkin table that’s essentially a cross between, well, a napkin and a table. Both ends are meant to be worn by people who are sitting opposite one another. The table-slash-napkin has slots for bowls and cups so you can have a proper meal without the fuss.Continue Reading

Another Use for Trolls: Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot

Treasure Troll Air Plant Pot

 

Remember those troll dolls that you used to collect back in the nineties? Well, they’re back in the form of these Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots, and they’re greener than ever. The makers of the pots have removed their signature mop of neon hair to make way for a living “wig” that you’re supposed to provide.

Looks like trolls have found a new use–and a new hairstyle in the process! Mother Nature would approve.

The Treasure Troll Air Plant Pots are sold for $35.

It’s white and fluffy as a cloud should be, giving whatever room you decide to put it in an ethereal feel. And since it’s a lamp, it provides you with some much-needed illumination so you can get some reading done.

For Your Convenience: Trudeau Bottle Cap Opener and Catcher

Trudeau Bottle Cap Opener-Catcher

 

These days, numerous contraptions and accessories exist to help you do even the most mundan things. Take, for example, this little thing Trudeau came up with that’s both a bottle opener and cap catcher at the same time.

It works simply enough, and it does save you from a potentially sore back, especially if you’re having a particularly large group of friends over. You can get one online for $12.
