Fish Tea Bags: Truly Fish Out Of Water

Fish Tea Bags

 

Gold fish swimming in the tea that you’re about to drink? Sounds pretty nasty, but these fishy tea bags will make most people wonder why you’re sipping that tea so calmly while a goldfish swims leisurely in your cup…

The company behind these creative tea bags is Taiwan-based Charm Villa. The tea bags look like typical tea bags when they’re out of the water, but submerge it in hot water and watch it transform into the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in a cup. Beauty in tea bags? Now that’s not something you see or hear about everyday.

Of Swings and Booze: Bar With a Swingset for Seats Exists

Swingset Bar

 

There’s another way to get dizzy when you’re at the bar, but it doesn’t involve knocking back more shots. Rather, all you need to do is push off the ground– that is, if you happen to be seated on one of the swings that serve as seats on this unusual bar. Instead of the usual stools, it has a number of swings surrounding it. You obviously can’t push off as hard as you like because you’ll probably end up banging your knees (while damaging the bar in the process.)

It’s being sold by Duffy London and comes with a pretty hefty pricetag: $37,465.

Popcorn Monsoon Puts The Fun In Pop… corn

popconr-monsoon

Yeah, that’s a sad headline, but there you have it. The Popcorn Monsoon is a little appliance for making popcorn, well, more fun. At least the popping part of it, since eating it is always kind of cool. The conceptual device uses hot air to get the kernels popped, which is healthier than oil. And then the popped corn gets pushed up this bent plastic tube and falls into an awaiting bowl. Kids can watch as the snack gets made, and they may look forward to eating it despite it being bland as heck.

Yes, this particular product has existed for ages, only this one has a longer neck and bright colors. But that’s just it, isn’t it? It’s amazing what a little design change can do to brighten up an otherwise bland and unassuming appliance. Sadly, it’s not a real product, though we suspect it would do well in the marketplace if anyone took the time to manufacture it.

BelfieStick: For That Perfect Butt Selfie

BelfieStick

Selfies. They’re annoying, but you’re probably guilty of taking a couple of ’em from time to time. If you’re tired of having Facebook feed is flooded with selfies of people making duck faces, cross eyed, or sticking their tongues out, then start a trend of your own–or provide a breath of not-so-fresh-air–by posting a Belfie.

A belfie is, crudely put, a butt selfie. Taking one isn’t as easy as it sounds, so you’re better off taking a self butt portrait using the Belfie. It’s like a selfie stick, only it’s for, well, taking pictures of your butt.

It’s available online for $80.

Poop Emoji Shirt and Sneakers1

Would you wear a shirt that’s covered in poop? What about high tops smeared with crap? You probably wouldn’t, unless it’s the ones made by Betabrand. At first glance, the shirt and shoes look like it’s feature an intricate pattern but look closely and you’ll see that it’s the crappiest shirt in the world–literally in a figurative sense of the word.

Because while they aren’t really covered in poop, they are covered in poop emojis. Close enough?

Handicorn is a Unicorn Finger Puppet

Handicorn

 

Unicorns are what little girls’ (and some little boys’) dreams are made of. If you’re bored and happen to have six bucks lying around, then you might want to blow it spent it on the Handicorn. It’s a clever play on words, but it’s basically a teeny tiny finger puppet unicorn.

The Beagle mailbox is definitely awesomer than your average mailbox, plus it’s a canine that’s a welcome change for your mailman.

Just hook the nifty little gadget to your laptop and snap the sensor onto your subject’s finger. It keeps track of the person’s pulse, which will most likely speed up when they’re about to tell or are telling a tall tale.
