Small Mic, Big Voice: Micro Karaoke Player

Micro Karaoke

You’re no Bruno Mars but you’re no William Hung either. But like the two, you have a passion for music and love to sing. If you can’t wait until you get home before belting out a few choice lines from your favorite song, then here’s something you’ll no doubt enjoy having: the Micro Karaoke Player. As the name suggests, it’s a handy karaoke player that’s small enough to fit into your bag or pocket.

Okay, so it’s essentially just a mini microphone that comes with echo features, but it’s the closest to on-the-go karaoke that you can get. The Micro Karaoke Player is meant to be connected to your music player and you can hook up earphones or speakers for the output.

From the earphones attached to the “mini karaoke”, you can hear a combination of the music from the music player and your own voice complete with echo through the microphone. It is as if you are singing the song you love at your favorite karaoke bar. 

Just make sure you have the songs pre-loaded onto your mobile device or music player. The Micro Karaoke Player is available for $38.90.

Look Closer: This Parrot is Actually a Woman

Bodypainted Parrot Lady

 

Not everything is at it seems. The title of this post isn’t meant to fool you, but unless you’ve got a really sharp eye, then you probably think you’ve been had because the picture is clearly that of a bird, not a woman–or is it?

It honestly took me a few minutes and several double-takes before I saw her. It’s so seamless that it’s easy to un-see even when you’ve already seen her. This work of impressive body painting art was done by artist Johannes Stoette, who’s eye for detail is truly something else. If you still haven’t spotted her, here’s a hint: check out the parrot’s tail first.

Bake, Eat, Repeat: Bakeable Kit Kats

Baked Kit Kat

 

Have a break, have a Kit Kat! But if your break is longer than the average, then why settle for a regular Kit Kat when you can have a baked one? This latest offering is only available at Japan’s Kit Kat Chocolaterie and is dubbed as “Delicious When Baked Pudding Flavored Kit Kats.” They’re essentially mini-sized, pudding-flavored Kit Kats that you’re supposed to pop into the oven before eating.

When heated in a toaster, the sugar content in the chocolate hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.

Tickle Generates Fake Phone Calls to Get You Out of Awkward Situations

)

What do you do when you find yourself in an awkward situation? Some people overcompensate by talking a mile a minute, while others fiddle with their phones or even fake making a call, just so they can excuse themselves. If you’ve ever tried going the latter route, then you know just how hard it can be sometimes to keep a straight face while having a fake conversation with no one.

Cue Tickle, a service that generates fake phone calls so you won’t have to pretend anymore. Developed by Alex Cornell and Phil Mills, the app “calls” you when you find yourself in a sticky situation or when you want to leave a potentially awkward or embarrassing scenario. All you have to do is move the phone in a jerky or “awkward manner” (check out the video after the break to see what the developers mean by this) and the app will get to work.

Songtapper: Find the Name of That Song By Tapping

Songtapper

 

So you just heard the most awesome song, but weren’t able to fire up SoundHound in time to capture enough snippets of it to search for its title. You could always look up the lyrics, but Google won’t be able to help you out if you can’t remember enough relevant lines.

Your last hope–and best bet, at this point–is SongTapper. It’s basically a search engine that searches for songs based on its beats. If you can hum along to the tune or remember the intro or sound of its chorus, then you can just tap out the rhythm by tapping on your space bar and SongTapper will do the rest for you.

It’s not the most accurate thing in the world, but the results might just amaze you. Check it out HERE.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Finally Gives You More Than Just Stories

Chicken Soup for the Soul

 

For decades, the Chicken Soup for the Soul series have touched people’s hearts and warmed their insides the way hot chicken soup can. What started out as a single title expanded to include dozens of books, each containing anecdotes and stories with a hidden lesson or two.

Its creators must’ve decided that touching lives with the written word wasn’t enough, because they now want to warm people up and feed their souls and stomach with actual chicken soup. The Chicken Soup for the Soul brand of Chicken Noodle Soup is apparently “inspired by your stories about food and feelings.” I’m not sure how you can add “feelings” to ready-to-serve soup, but I suppose that’s marketing for you.

Aside from instant soup, the brand will also be stamping their brand on broths, gravy, sauces, soup toppers, and even pet food. It doesn’t come as a surprise, considering there are numerous volumes under their Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul series.
