Ahoy, Matey: Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

 

It’s frustrating to use chopsticks when you haven’t gotten the hang of it. It’s worse when you’re doing so on an empty (or close-to-empty) stomach. But you’re not alone. The pirate at the end of these uber adorable chopsticks echoes your sentiments with his comically pained expression, and he wants to help you.

With his mere presence, he turns the chopsticks into sort-of clips that makes picking up food easier. They’re great if you’re just starting to learn to use chopsticks.

The Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks are available online for about $6.

Chuck Norris Would Approve: Nunchops Chopsticks

Nunchops Chopsticks

Eat ramen the way Chuck Norris would with these Nunchops Chopsticks. As its name so cleverly implies, they’re chopsticks linked with a plastic chain like nunchucks. You won’t be able to flip ‘em and twirl ‘em around menacingly to scare off your enemies, but you will be able to eat your meal like a boss.

The chain also means you won’t misplace one or the other, since the chopsticks are linked together.

It also happens to be a one-of-a-kind multitool that can do more than what you’d expect to be able to do with a hair accessory.

Designed by industrial design student Yaacov Goldberg, the Leatherdos packs in a wrench, screw driver, ruler, mini saw, and trolley coin. When you need to tighten a screw or measure something, just unclip and use as you please.

Tweet a Coke to Show Loved Ones You Care

Tweet a Coke

 

Sometimes, all a person needs is an ice-cold bottle of Coca-Cola. You don’t have to be close by to hand them their Coke, because all you’ll need is Twitter. The beverage company’s marketing team has upped their social media interactivity by allowing users to send friends, loved ones, and random strangers a bottle of coke…straight from Twitter!

To get started, users will have to authenticate their account and enter their credit card information. When they’re ready to send some Coke, all they have to do is tweet a link to their intended recipient. When opened, this link lets the receiver redeem their bottle of coke from participating Regal Cinemas locations. Pretty neat, huh?

Mini Me, Mini You: Shapify 3D Selfie

Shapify 3D Selfie

 

Taking selfies one step farther and giving them the 3D treatment is Shapify. Their service lets you turn your self-portraits into a three-dimension action figure that you can proudly display in your home or office. All you need is the Shapify app and a Kinect sensor (borrow your neighbor’s, if you don’t have one!) to 3D scan yourself.

When you’re done, send it off to Shapify to order your selfie figurine. We have to warn you, though, this definitely costs more than your average selfie, since it’ll set you $79 back.

Water Balloon Fights Will Never Be The Same

bunch-o-balloons-2

There’s nothing quite as much fun as a water balloon fight on a hot summer day. But it’s safe to say that water balloon warfare is a field that’s seen relatively little technological innovation over the years. That’s about to end with the introduction of the “Bunch O’ Balloons” product. It’s a device that allows you to fill up 37 water balloons at once, using nothing but a garden hose. It unites the 37 balloon stems into one large stem which is then simply screwed onto the end of the hose. Open the faucet, fill them up, then just shake them loose; a special clamp automatically ties them shut as you shake so you don’t even need to tie them individually. At this rate, you’ll be able to fill about 100 a minute, which should be plenty fast enough to keep you armed through an entire afternoon.

The Kickstarter understandably blew right past its $10,000 goal, and is sitting at $537,000 at the time of writing. People are excited about this, and at $17 for a pack of 100, it won’t break the bank. Shipping is slated for September, however, so unless you live in a hot climate, you might not be able to get this in time for this summer.

This Mirror Takes Your Selfies and Posts Them Online

Selfie mirror

Take a selfie every day? Then this mirror is for you. It’s aptly called the S.E.L.F.I.E.–which is the abbreviation of the “Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine.” It seems kind of forced, but at least they made it work with the acronym. Staying true to its name, the Selfie mirror takes your selfies without your outstretched arm or that monopod showing up in the frame.

It’s powered by a Mac Mini computer hidden on the other side. The mirror is equipped with a webcam and LED lights that are connected to an Arduino chip, which functions as your timer. All you have to do is say cheese, and voila! The mirror takes a snapshot and posts it to your social media profile in a snap.
