Razor Makes Adult-Sized, Driftalicious Crazy Cart XL

crazy-cart-xl-2

A while ago we heard about the Crazy Cart, by Razor. This was a small, one-wheeled, battery-powered cart with a hand-actuated lever that would lift the back end and allow it to swing freely from side to side. This meant one thing only: drifts galore! But it was pretty small and would handle people up to 140 lbs at most. Now, however, comes news of the Crazy Cart XL, a version made to handle adult-sized adults. Along with the larger frame (which can accommodate a person up to 240lbs) comes a more powerful 500W electric motor that can reach a speed of up to 17 mph. The one high-torque wheel can turn 180 degrees in either direction, providing propulsion forwards as well as backwards. And battery run-time will have you doing donuts and going sideways for up to 40 minutes at a time.

Watch the video, you’ll understand why this little cart is deserving of the “crazy” moniker. At $800, it seems reasonably priced. But know that they’re only making 1,600 units, which are available for pre-order on Toys R’ Us.

Finally!: Groot Toy Dancing to Stores This December

Dancing-Groot-toy

You’ve been waiting for it, and it’s finally here. Well, almost here. Guardians of the Galaxy enthralled audiences and broke box office records, and the ending sequence made people fall in love with dancing baby Groot. Figurines, models, and toys featuring Groot have been released, but none of them ever danced the way Groot did.

That’s going to change with the release of the new dancing Groot toy in a few months, which was a product of Marvel’s collaboration with KIDdesigns. The best part? He’ll be grooving to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” It’ll be available for $14.99 by December, just in time for Christmas. Check out a clip of dancing Groot after the break.

Cucumbo Makes Cucumber Coils

cucumbo

There are those who cook because they have to eat, and then there are those who do because it’s fun. If you’re in the second camp, maybe you’ll get a kick out of Cucumbo. It doesn’t really do anything other than to slice a cucumber in a coil pattern. Stick it in there, and twist. The end product looks kind of cool, and we suppose presentation is important. It’s a cheap and simple way to have a little fun in the kitchen. $13.

Giant Sausage Pillow: Sweet Dreams are Made of Meat

Giant Sausage Pillow

You probably should avoid this pillow at all costs if you’re on a diet or trying to go vegan. As its name implies, the giant sausage pillow is just that: a larger-than-life pillow that looks like a delicious grilled sausage. Isn’t your mouth watering already? Put one on your couch, on your bed, or on the floor–wherever you might feel like snuggling against it, actually.

Its makers were able to make the print look so realistic by using a special sublimation technique after shaping the pillow into a giant, bent sausage.

I Are Blockhead: Giant Robot Block Head Costume

Giant Robot Block Head Costume

Don’t be another zombie in the crowd this Halloween. Be a robot instead–a robot with a block for a head. For 30 bucks, you can wear whatever clothes you want but still be in costume with this thing over your head. The only downside is that you can’t eat or drink when you’re wearing it, but you can always take it off when it’s time to chow.

The robot head’s highlight? It’s LED eyes that’ll hypnotize anyone who stares at it for too long.

Sleeping Bag Suit is a Mattress You Can Wear

Wearable Air Mattress

Too lazy to change into your PJs before turning in? With this suit on, you won’t have to. In fact, you don’t even need a bed, because this thing is a mattress in itself. It’s the King Jim wearable futon and it’s a viable alternative for frequent travelers who can’t be bothered to bring a futon, mattress, or sleeping bag when they’re out and about.

All you have to do is whip it out, wear it, and lie down. If you’re using it as a coat, the bottoms can be folded up to adjust the wearable futon to your height.Continue Reading

For the Unpicturables: Paparazzi Thwarting Reflective Visor

Paparazzi Thwarting Reflective Visor

 

So this is the paparazzi-thwarting reflective visor. It makes life a living hell for paparazzi because they’ll never be able to take a proper photo of you when you’ve got this on. You probably won’t have much need for this if you aren’t a celebrity, though. Come to think of it, we’re not even sure an actual celebrity would wear it because it’s not exactly fashionable or attractive. But if you care more about your privacy than making a fashion statement, then you should definitely get one of these.

The visors are available from Hammacher for $49.95.

Farm of the Undead: Grow Your Own Zombie with Chia

Chia Pet Zombie

Ever since The Walking Dead took the world by storm, people have become pretty obsessed with the undead. Companies have also been scrambling to take advantage of the trend, and Chia is no exception. You might be familiar with Joseph Enterprises’ line of Chia Pets, where you basically just water it until the chia grows and covers the planter that it came with.

You’ve already seen the kitten or puppy versions– now check out the Zombie-themed ones. There’s the Creepy Holden, which features a zombie head poking out from your (soon-to-grow) garden. Then there’s Lifeless Lisa, his female counterpart, and the Restless Arm which features none other than a, well, restless arm.

You can get them from Amazon or Home Depot for $30.

3D Printed James Harden Flash Drive: Pull Beard to Access Data

James Harden Flash Drive

If you’re a fan of the Houston Rockets, then you probably know who that USB–er, guy–up there is supposed to be. He’s James Harden and he’s an NBA player known for his foundational type of play. He’s also known for his ever-present bear. He probably won’t be shaving it off soon, but you can remove his beard anytime with this fun and cleverly designed Harden flash drive.

At first glance, it looks like a mere miniature model of Harden. But pull the beard and you’ll see that it’s actually a USB drive. Clever, clever.
