Wearable Sled Legs

Well, winter is coming to an end in most parts of the northern hemisphere. But there’s still a little bit left, and some of the more motivated among you might want to squeeze every last drop out of it. These Wearable Sled Legs look like a ton of fun, turning your shins and knees into a sliding surface so you can tear those mountains up in a completely novel way. It’s being billed as a hybrid between skis and sleds, is meant for riders 5 feet and up, and can handle up to 250bls. They’re padded on the inside, so you won’t have to worry about hurting anything, except maybe if you slide right into a tree or something. We’re sure these aren’t a new product, but we bet at least some of you have never seen them. They’re $60.

Santa’s Stocking Flask Is Our Kind Of Flask

Look, you can hang stockings on the fireplace mantel and fill them with useless doodads no one really likes. Or, you can try to live life a little and hang this, ‘Santa’s Stocking Flask’ instead. It stores up to 2.25L of whatever party liquid you want to put in there, and there’s a handy tap at the bottom for easy dispensing.

This year, however, the elves are sending stockings down south before the holidays to liven up all your festivities! These BPA-free stocking-shaped flasks will be the hit of the holiday party, although we don’t recommend bringing them to your CEO’s house.

Smart Products Are Not Just For Us — They’re For Our Pets Too!

61ze00qsr2l-_sl1000_

Come on humans, our fur babies only deserve the best! Let us not deprive them of the cool benefits of using smart products.

When we think about it, they do need these things because: 1.) We leave them at home alone and sad on most days. 2.) They’re the superstars in our lives and we can’t bear to see them sad, don’t we?

Why don’t you get your pets a little smart something this Christmas? Here are some cool pet gift ideas.

Cameras That Dispenses Treats

Aside from keeping you connected with your dog during your lunch breaks at work, pet cameras like the Petzi Treat Cam can dispense treats to your pets when you’re away. Keep them happy and watch them catch the treats. Snap a photo for memories too.

Fitness Trackers

Surprised? See, it’s not only you who need Fitbit. Track your pet’s health and make sure that they get enough exercise by making them wear FitBark. You can easily share the data with your vet so you can keep them at their top shape.

Smart Toys That Keep Them Active

During playtime, I bet it’s you who always run out of breath first. Well, there are smart toys that can let your pets play to their hearts’ content! The Petcube comes with a laser pointer which you can program. Another one is iFetch; it lets your dog play catch the whole day if they want to. These toys are best if you want to keep your dogs active, but you lack the time to regularly walk or play with them.

Give your pets any of these smart products and get a lick!

Feisty Pets Are The Perfect Gift For That Kid You Don’t Like

feisty-pets-1

As far as we’re concerned, we’d be buying every child on the planet one of these, considering how little we think of kids in general. But we’re horrible human beings, so don’t pay too much attention. “These” are called Feisty Pets and they look like a normal, cute little plushie at first sight. But when you give them a hearty squeeze (as kids do), they instantly turn into nightmare material. It’s pretty amazing what a few fangs and frowny eyebrows can do to a face, but there you have it: instant children’s tears. They come in bear, cat, dog, or monkey variations, and cost all of $20.

The Piggyback Driver Helmet Is Where Dignity Ends and Parenthood Begins

the-piggyback-driver-helmet-is-a-great-reason-to-put-off-having-kids

Presumably, carrying your kid on your shoulders is a fun experience. But now you can make that experience even more appealing, if perhaps only to your child. The Piggyback Driver Helmet is meant to give your kid some handlebars while they’re riding high on your shoulders. Certainly it beats choking you from behind with their tiny hands, but it’s once you discover its features that you realize this device just literally turns you into a steed. Turning the handlebars one way or another will light up an LED patch on either side of the helmet, letting you know when your toddler wants you to turn left or right. A horn button will attract the attention of anyone nearby to your complete abandon of any self respect, while a turbo button will give your kid a chance to further humiliate you by encouraging you to run faster. All in all, it’s one of those things that looks totally cool… for someone else to own.

It’s not a product that you can buy just yet, having only recently been demonstrated at the New York Maker Faire. The creators are in the process of looking for backers to bring this project to market, though we wonder why they aren’t just Kickstartering it.

The Can Cannon Will Launch Your Suds Across A Football Field

can-cannon

You own an AR-15 or M16 rifle, but you’re getting tired of shooting real bullets at stuff? Yeah, a company called X Products hears you and in response, they’ve developed the Can Cannon. It’s a system designed to launch full, unopened aluminum beverage cans to an average distance of up to 105 yards. It uses blanks as propellant, and apparently will accommodate other similarly sized objects, like tennis balls. The company is even developing more products that will fit the Can Cannon, like a grappling hook or a net launcher. It’s a fun, non-lethal add-on to your rifle, and it’ll set you back $400.

Office Warfare: Q-Tip Crossbow

qtip_crossbow_1

You’ve been wanting to get back at Tim from accounting ever since he covered your seat in Scotch Tape, but unsure how? The Q-Tip Crossbow is just the right type of weapon for this job. Just crank it, place a Q-Tip and pull the trigger cord. You’ll hit your target up to 20ft away, and Tim will never be able to get upset at you because, well, it’s paper and cotton for crying out loud. Some assembly is required and it comes with 25 Q-Tips, but it’s not like you can’t buy 1,000 for $5 at Costco or anything. It’s $10 from Thinkgeek.

Battling Star Wars Drones Are A Thing That You Can Buy

Propel-RC-Star-Wars-Battling-Quad-Drones

When we write about Star Wars merchandise, it’s usually just some stuff that looks like something in the movies, and doesn’t do much, like a lamp or a toaster or something. But these Propel RC Star Wars “Battling Quad” Drones are something else: they carry lasers that can tag their opponents, grounding them after three successful hits. You’ll thus be able to conduct some pretty gnarly aerial dogfights, since these are some pretty powerful drones too, reaching their 25mph top speed in only 3 seconds. They come in 74-Z Speeder Bike, Tie Advanced X1, T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, or Millennium Falcon variants. But since we’re talking about serious toys, we’re also looking at serious prices ranging from $325 to $400.

Spot It: There’s A Cellphone On This Rug

cell-phone-on-rug

Let’s play a game of Where’s Waldo, only now we’re looking for something else. On the picture above there is a table, a rug and a cellphone. Only you’re not going to find the cellphone. At least we don’t think you will, not without a hint. If you do, you got some skills, hermano. It’s a picture taken by Facebooker Jeya May Cruz and has gone completely viral, even appearing on mainstream TV shows, like the Today Show. She claims she just dropped her phone and couldn’t find it… but then how did she take this picture? It’s not like anyone has standalone cameras anymore. We say she planted it there, knowing full well the firestorm she would ignite. Well played, Jeya, well played. Ok so… where is it?

SPOILER ALERT. Don’t keep reading if you want to find it on your own.

Look just to the right of the right table leg. See it? It’s face down with a flower pattern case. No, really, it’s there.

Ok, we’re done here. Carry on.
