For the Adventurous: theQ Waterproof and Social Camera

The-Q-Camera

 

Bright colors. Waterproof. Filters. 3G connectivity. What more can you ask for from a camera these days? TheQ camera isn’t made for editorials or photo shoots, but it should be more than enough for your social photography needs, AKA selfies, couple shots, groufies, and whatever else you post on social media these days.

Its built-in 3G makes sharing images a breeze, without having to go through the process of transferring your pictures to your laptop to do so. If you’re into filters, then tweak your shots on TheQ Lab online before uploading them to your profile.

Where’s Waldo? Somewhere On This Shirt

Where's Waldo Shirt

 

Where oh where could Waldo be? Most of the time, it takes a lot of persistence and a sharp eye to spot Waldo from among the crowd on a page in one of his books. But what about on this oh-so-colorful shirt inspired by none other than Waldo? Waldo can be found (or rather, searched for) in all sorts of places around the world.

This time around, Waldo takes his adventure underwater, given that the shirt is blue and all. It doesn’t help that red-and-white stripes are everywhere–from the fishing boats to fishes and numerous dudes sporting the striped pants.

Up for the challenge? You can get one of these shirts for $22 from 80s Tees.

Need a Job? Brew Some Resume-Ale!

Resum-Ale

 

Traditional resumes just don’t cut it anymore. Oftentimes, those who get the job are the ones with credentials that stand out from the rest. However, aside from qualifications, here’s one other thing that you could do to up your chances of getting hired: come up with an unusual or creative resume that’ll get people talking. You know, like interactive resumes that play out like a game or LEGO resumes that you can build, brick by brick.

And then there’s Brennan Gleason’s Resum-ale. It’s a resume that comes in the form of a four-pack of the graphic designer’s special homebrew, something that prospective bosses will love for sure. Brennan explains: “I’ve seen beef jerky business cards and really weird stuff like that. So, I really wanted to do something along those lines.”

Weird? Yes. Cool? Definitely. So weird and cool it was that Brennan landed a job as a result with a Vancouver-based digital marketing agency. Sounds like a good fit, doesn’t it?

Canned Awesomeness: Canned Dragon Meat

Canned Dragon Meat

 

Canned dragons are mythical creatures that have fascinated people since day one. Now you can give the gift that will fulfill the fantasies of those who are enthralled by these magnificent beasts–after they get over the initial shock, that is–with a tin of Canned Dragon Meat. The can’s label itself looks nasty enough, so the recipient will probably expect the worst.

That and the fact that the can contains nothing but an adorkable plush dragon will more than make up for the initial dread. Each tin of Canned Dragon Meat costs £12.99 (about $23.)

Bear Skin Picnic Blanket is All Sorts of Adorbs

Bear Skin Picnic Blanket

 

It doesn’t make sense to use a bear skin rug as a picnic blanket, but it makes all sorts of sense to use this bear skin picnic blanket. It has the typical red checkered pattern you’d find on most blankets with a marked difference: it’s shaped like a bear! A bear skin rug, actually, with the grinning face of an adorable bear.

The blanket is generously sized so your usual picnic party can fit right on it. Just pack it with a well-stocked picnic basket and you’ll be good to go.

The Bear Skin Picnic blanket retails for $49.99.

Perfect for Road Trips: Inflatable Car Bed

Inflatable Car Bed

Road trips are fun, but long-distance trips will take a toll eventually because cars aren’t exactly made with comfort in mind. Cue the Inflatable Car Bed that transforms the entire row of seats into a comfortable sleeping area for one person. It makes most sense to have one of these if you’re driving a van or something with more rows of seats or space, because you can’t exactly fit more than one person on this thing comfortably.

It’s pretty compact when it’s folded, so you can just keep it in the trunk when you don’t need it. The bed is constructed from high-quality PVC with a soft surface, which makes it more than perfect for on-board snoozing.

Personalised Superhero Action Figures

 

If you could be any superhero, who would you choose to be? The choices are limited when it comes to Firebox’s personalized superhero action figures, but they’re still awesome all the same. Guys can decide to be Captain America, Iron Man, or Thor, while the ladies can pick between being Catwoman or Wonder Woman.

The DIY kit contains a superhero action figure with its original head attached, epoxy putty, and a white tack. To truly make it your own, Firebox will print a model of your head in 3D and include it in the kit. All you have to do is take two pictures of your head (one front view and one side shot) and they’ll take care of the rest.

At Last! A Never-Ending Treat for the True Slinky Connoisseur

neverendingslinkymachine

If you love the Slinky so much that you can’t even go a day without nudging one down the stairs to see whether it will keep going, crash or simply get tangled up before reaching the bottom, then this is the gizmo for you. Project NESM – a severe-sounding acronym for Never-Ending Slinky Machine – is on the designer’s block awaiting crowd funding through Kickstarter. For a pledge of just $59, you can help push it through to production. The makers (Creatables Labs) have already reached their target of $33,660, so if you pledge you can count yourself among the few lucky people that will get a production model NESM. Designed with a simple conveyor belt mechanism tilted at just the right angle, this unique machine will keep your slinky going on and on. And on, until you tire of it and simply let it walk off the machine. USB powered and speed-variable, this is the hottest thing since…well, the Slinky.
