Rainmaker Turns Old Soda Bottles Into Watering Cans–Er, Bottles

Rainmaker

 

House plants need constant watering and it’s always better to spread the water out evenly rather than just pouring it on. If you don’t have a watering can and just fill old water bottles up to water your plants, then the Rainmaker is something you need to get. It’s an attachment for plastic bottles that basically transforms it into a watering can of sorts so you can make it rain for your plants with a quick squeeze of the bottle.

The Rainmaker is compatible with most water or soda bottles, although it works best with 1 to 2-liter cola bottles. They’re available online for $11.99.

Chasing After Daleks: Doctor Who Invades Pacman

Doctor Who Pacman Game

The Doctor isn’t one to run from a fight, but he’s smart, so he’ll run if he has to. Like in the Doctor PacMan game, for example. It’s essentially PacMan injected with Whovian elements, where the usual yellow dot-chomping dude is transformed into Doctor Who with the addition of a messy mop of hair and a pixelated bow tie.

Instead of the usual ghosts, ghastly Daleks (that’s Caan, Thay, Jast, and Seec, if you’re curious) are chasing Doctor PacMan through the labyrinth, where the occasional sonic screwdriver will turn the tables and have the Doctor chasing after them instead.

The game was made by Ruben P. Vargas from Rarity Workshop and you can play it HERE.

Two Eggs and a Face With Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper

Gregg Fried Egg Mold

Sunny side ups aren’t just mere sunny side ups when you’re cooking them with Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper. With a few flicks of your hand, some extra (and preferably colorful) ingredients, and a whole lot of creativity, you can transform eggs into funny faces and fun works of art with this silicon egg mold.

Ideally, the yokes go into the eyes, but there’s no rule that says you can’t just scramble the eggs so you’ll end up with a scrambled egg face that you can top with your favorite omelette toppings.

Play Tetris on the Coolest Business Card Ever!

Tetris Business Card

 

If you failed to make an impression in person, then the only chance you have left is to make an impression with your business card. Plain old cards are boring. The way to go these days are interactive business cards and Bateske Design definitely got it right with their Arduboy digital business card.

It’s essentially a miniature, Arduino-based card that lets people play Tetris on it. How they managed to cram an OLED screen, capacitive D-pad, A/B buttons, and a piezo speaker into the 1.6mm-thick card is a feat in itself.

Not Bigger On the Inside, But Still Awesome: Stand-Up TARDIS Cardboard

Doctor Who Box

 

If you have two hundred bucks to spare and are a die-hard Whovian who would give anything to have his own TARDIS, then this cardboard stand-up that looks just like the one the Doctor has might just be the thing for you. The exterior features the time machine’s signature blue hue with the familiar “police box” sign painted right on top.

The cardboard stand-up measures 55-inches square by 180-inches tall and is big enough to fit a fully-grown man (and several more–although you shouldn’t expect it to magically expand to fit your entire gang!).

It’s available from Urban Collector for $225. Alternatively, you can just go and get some paint from Home Depot and paint over an empty refrigerator box.

Lather Up in Imaginary Riches With BitCoin-Inspired BitSoaps

Bitsoaps

 

You can’t hold Bitcoins in your hands but you can lather up a storm with BitSoaps. The two are in no way affiliated with each other; one is an a cryptocurrency you can actually spend, while the other one is a giant coin-shaped soap that comes in three variants.

BitSoaps are made by an enterprising young couple who were “fascinated by [the] concept and versatile utility” of the Bitcoin currency. So they decided to jump on its popularity and come up with soaps inspired by it. On their website, they explain: “Our love for nature and passion for exciting endeavors has drawn us to creating this project. A project that merged environmental mindfulness and digital currency. Marrying these polarized ideas has, therefore, given birth to BitSoaps.”

There are three kinds of BitSoaps to choose from: Bitcoin Hemp Oil Soap Bar, Bitcoin Valentines Lavender Hemp/Castile Soap Bar, and Litecoin Castile Soap Bar. Each coin–er, bar–is priced at $4.42.
