Satisfying: Watch 10,000 Buckyball Cube Get Destroyed

vxz1gigw6qxr7ugpgaks

Remember the Buckyballs, these tiny magnetic balls that could be arranged into fascinating 3D arrays? They’re now banned, you know, because we’re all kids and we need the Consumer Product Safety Commission to watch over us like hawks… But even though new Buckyballs can’t be sold, that doesn’t stop people from having fun with the millions that were sold before the ban. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you should watch the video below, featuring a 10,000 ball cube getting smashed to bits. It’s therapeutic in a way, knowing someone spent countless hours building it, only to smash it for our viewing pleasure.

That is all. Carry on.

Whistle Straws Let You Whistle While You Sip

Whistle Straws1

 

 

Feel like annoying the crap out of your friends? Nothing does that better than these Wet My Whistle straws. First and foremost, their design is based on slide whistles, which are played by blowing on one end while sliding the other in and out. They’re easy to play, but difficult to master.

The Whistle Straws build upon this concept, only you’re supposed to slide the straw in and out of your drink. The varying beverage levels changes the amount of empty space in the straw, which allows you to produce different tunes as you go along.

Nicolas Cage is a great actor, although he hasn’t been in many good movies lately. Regardless whether you agree or disagree with that, I’m fairly certain you wouldn’t want to see his mug plastered all over your computer screen. Unless you’re his ultimate mega fan, that is. A browser extension that does exactly just that is called nCage. It’s perfect for pranksters and for the aforementioned mega fans, because it basically turns every image on your browser window into a photo featuring none other than Nicolas Cage.

They’ve mixed it up, too, so you’ll be treated to a slew of Nic Cages with various expressions, hair styles, and eye sizes (yes, there’s one where he does the crazy eyes.) Check out nCage here.

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.

Build ‘Em Then Eat ‘Em: Functional Chocolate LEGO Blocks

Functional Chocolate LEGO

So you’ve been taught not to play with your food. But what if those morsels you can chew are actually toys at the same time? Cue Akihiro Mizuuchi and his chocolate LEGO bricks. They look just like LEGO and work like LEGO, too. This means you can connect and stack them one upon the other to come up the final figure you had in mind.

Making them isn’t exactly rocket science, but it’s not that easy, either. Chocolate is basically poured into precise molds, where they are cooled before being popped out and used as bricks. The fun part is making them using various types of chocolate, include dark, white, and even strawberry-flavored.

Better Than the Truck? Retro Game Console Transformers

Retro Game Console Transformers

Everyone has seen Optimus Prime transform into a truck and back again, but have you ever seen him transform into a Playstation 1 and vice versa? Thanks to toymaker Takara Tomy, you will.

Awesome: We Are Handmade Little Groot Figurines

Groot Handmade Figurines

There’s no doubt about it: Groot made quite the impression as one of the leads in Guardians of the Galaxy, and he isn’t even human! He doesn’t say much, so he lets his actions do the talking instead–and if you saw the hit movie, then you’ll get what I mean. It was only a matter of time before little dancing Groots made their way to store shelves, both real and digital, and these particular figurines by by Kelsey Wailes are nothing short of awesome.

Her first batch features little Groot in 13 different poses, each one showcasing a particular dance pose and facial expression.
