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.

KFC Keyboard: Hungrier By the Letter

KFC Keyboard

A keyboard made by KFC that’s covered with tiny(but still yummy-looking) pieces of chicken and drumstick-shaped flash drives? Where else can you expect to find gadgets like these but Japan? Of course, it’s not complete without a mouse…so KFC Japan threw in a drumstick mouse into the mix, too!

Granted, the only letters you’ll find on the keyboard are K, F, and C. You’ll have a lot of guesswork to do with the other letters if you’re not used to typing without glancing down at the letters on your keyboard anymore.

Giant French Fries Bed: Lay On a Bed of Ketchup

Supersize Bed

 

You probably shouldn’t get this bed if you’re on a diet. In fact, you shouldn’t be thinking about how much you want it either, seeing as you’re turning over a new leaf and aiming for a healthier lifestyle. But you want it anyways.

Fries are fatty, greasy, and totally unhealthy…but you love them anyway. Not that this Supersize Bed is anything like the real thing, but you won’t be able to stop thinking about fries and how much you want to stuff your face with them since you’ll be lying on gigantic fries pillows all night.

Sleep In a Pool.. Well, Sort Of, With Snurk’s Pool Bedding

Snurk Pool Bedding

Fancy sleeping on a pool? Not in a pool or on a water bed, but on a pool? Now you can, although it isn’t exactly an actual pool with Snurk’s pool bedding. The duvet cover set features a photographic print on both sides of the bottom of a pool. The water looks inviting and oh-so-refreshing. It’s definitely a welcome sight after all these too-warm and humid days we’ve been having lately (or in my part of the world, anyway.)

The set includes pillow cases so you can sink into a deep slumber and drown in sweet dreams. The Swimming Pool-themed beddings are available for €59.95 (about $79.)

Kickball Ice Cream Maker: I Kick for Ice Cream

Kickball Ice Cream Maker

 

 

Kicking a ball is lots of fun, and ice cream is always a welcome treat. I think it’s safe to say that something that combines both is destined to become a huge hit, like the Kickball Ice Cream Maker. The name is pretty much self explanatory. Just pour in cream, sugar, vanilla, and your flavoring of choice into the ball’s food-safe sealed compartment. Fill the space outside of that compartment with ice and rock salt, seal it up, and start kicking the ball around.

Twenty minutes of play will give you one pint of delicious ice cream to enjoy. Not bad, considering everyone had a ton of fun while making the icy treat.

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is available online for $35.

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.
