LEGO Finally Made The Foot Protectors They Should Have Made Ages Ago


It’s well known that in Hell, you burn for eternity while walking barefoot on LEGOs. It’s in the Bible. Recognizing this reality, LEGO has finally decided to make things a little bit right by releasing a set of slippers meant to protect your feet from the unmentionable pain of walking on its bricks. Made in collaboration with Brand Station, it’s advertising agency, the slippers are made to look sort of like a brick. They’re part of a limited run of 1,500 only available as a prize in a contest you have to enter here.

LED Beer Pong Table Amps Up Your Party

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 12.01.00 PM

Being 35, the days of playing beer pong are far behind, sadly. But I don’t remember it ever being so big of a ‘thing’ as it seems to be now. There are even tournaments for the questionable “sport” in places like Las Vegas (and plenty of others, I assume, I just don’t get out much)! So I shouldn’t be surprised to hear about the LED Beer Pong Table. It’s a pretty awesome looking table with an infinity mirror, and hundreds of LEDs that create an illusion of endless space beneath the surface. The lights change and flash to the music, and can be controlled with an IR remote. Seen in action, it seems to be just the thing that drunken frat kids would love. The full metal construction means it won’t easily break, and magnetic locks keep it closed when folded. It’s “regulation size”, so, you know, you can even do tournaments we suppose.

It’s a $629 pre-order.

A Road Legal Little Tikes Cosy Coupe For Not-so-Little Kids


Back in 2013, U.K. Attitude Autos took a Daewoo Matiz and spent 16 weeks customizing it to make it look exactly like a Little Tikes Cosy Coupe. What you see above is the result of that effort, and now, after spending a couple of years appearing at charity events and raising money, the car is up for sale on eBay. It’s fully road legal, and can reach speeds of 70 miles an hour (112.6 km/h). “The eBay page has it listed at £21,500 (about $33,200 USD), down from what Attitude Autos says was the car’s initial appraisal of $46,000 USD.” Keep in mind it’s a stick shift, but that’s at least a couple notches better than having to push it with your feet.

StashPad Holds Your Booze and Cigars Discretely

iPad Flask

If you’ve been caught sneaking drinks in one too many times, then you should do away with your old methods and try using the StashPad for a change. It looks like an iPad (okay, maybe a knockoff iPad seeing as it’s way thicker than Apple’s tablets), but it’s actually a flask and cigar case in disguise. It’s thick for a good reason too– all 12 ounces of it, because that’s the volume of drinks it can effectively stash for you.

Just make sure you don’t attempt to actually use the StashPad, whether as a tablet (in case you forget) or as a flask, in front of your boss or you’ll risk giving yourself away. The StashPad is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $15 will get you one of your very own.

This Spiral Staircase Attaches To A Tree


There are many ways to climb a tree, but very few of them involve comfort or ease. Whether it’s mocking around on a bare trunk, or even using a ladder of any type, you’ll find yourself exerting yourself, potentially above your personal comfort levels. But there’s very little to find difficult about climbing a tree outfitted with the CanopyStair. It’s a set of stairs that attach to a tree trunk via ratchet straps. Install each step one by one, in a spiral pattern, and in less than half an hour you’ll have an easy and simple way to make yourself to the canopy. What you do once you’re there is another matter altogether, but at least the climbing part will be simple. There’s no word on price or availability, but it does seem to be a real product that will be available at some point in the not too distant future.

Check Out These ‘Magic: The Gathering’-Inspired Business Cards

Instead of handing out plain old boring business cards, she customized a set inspired by Magic: The Gathering to make players and non-MTG players pay attention.

$10,000 Gold Apple Watch Gets Crushed Between Two Huge Magnets


Destroying expensive things for views on YouTube; if that’s not the epitome of Western style capitalism, we don’t know what is. We certainly don’t know just how many views YouTuber Taras Maksimuk, better known as TechRax, will need to break even on this particular act of wanton destruction, but considering he’s gotten over 2 million subscribers breaking stuff, we suspect he’ll be alright. In this video, you’ll get to see what happens when two huge neodymium magnets smack together with 650 lbs of force, with an 18K Gold Apple Watch sandwiched in between. Hint: the watch loses.

Were you hoping for something more? No, just watch the vid. It’s fun. Then move on. Or not. We’re just sayin’.

LEGO Labyrinth Maze To Become Reality


LEGO has a section on their website where you can submit your ideas for what the next set should be. When your idea reaches 10,000 votes, the folks at LEGO look at it, often approve, and then make the set. We’re used to seeing pop culture related items, but it’s the first time we run across an approved project for a tilting Labyrinth Maze. Submitted by Jason, who goes by JK Brickworks on the Ideas site, the Labyrinth Marble Maze was approved some months ago and is apparently in the pipeline. It’s not a traditional Marble Maze set in the sense that balls only become stuck in the holes; they don’t fall underneath to be returned to you. You do get to customize the ball’s path and make it as challenging or as easy as you’d like. It’s an interesting idea that should get kids young and old alike learning about LEGO mechanics.

Also, in celebration of having reached 2,500 votes, Jason even built a ‘Legends of the Sea’ maze that will have you simply running through the maze as fast as possible; there are no holes for your ball to get stuck in. LEGO only recently officially announced they’ll be releasing the set, although price and timeline haven’t been announced yet.

Here’s Something Fun You Can 3D Print


Buying a 3D printer is all fun and games until you realize you’re running out of fun things to print. Now and then, however, we see something cool, like this Dremel Devil. It’s a plastic fan inside a cylinder, and it’s meant to be launched off a Dremel rotary tool. If done right, you’ll see this little toy soar up to 200 feet up in the air.

It’ll require a little bit of trial and error to figure out just how much pressure to use when inserting the Dremel Devil in the adapter, but a small learning curve shouldn’t keep anyone from having fun with this for at least a day or two. The file is free on the Thingiverse.
