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.

Notably Fashionable: Composition Notebook Tie

Composition Notebook Tie

 

So you can’t write on it, but the Composition Notebook tie is still pretty damn cool. It has just one ‘leaf’ and features the instantly-recognizable pattern on the front that you find on most composition notebooks. It’s made from smooth satin weave microfiber and is uber soft to the touch. It would make the perfect gift for that teacher who made an impact in your life, a writer, or your dad (who could be both.)

It’s available in traditional, modern, and skinny widths from Welltied for $40.

This Pen Transforms Into Optimus Prime and Vice Versa

Transformer Convoy Pen

What’s cooler than robots? Well, robots that can transform into cars and helicopters and other stuff, like pens, for instance. For the first two, you’ve got the Transformers that do exactly just that. For the latter, you’ve got the Transformer Convoy Pen by Sentinel. It’s not exactly the most comfortable or handiest pens to use or hold when it’s in pen form, but the awesomeness of it when it’s in robot toy form more than makes up for it.

And who else should it transform to but Optimus Prime?

Functional Decoy: Security Camera Birdfeeder

Security Camera Birdfeeder

The Security Camera Birdfeeder lets you be nice to birds and have something hanging outside your home to deter criminals and hoodlums from attempting to do something that they shouldn’t. Granted, it obviously doesn’t look real during the day, but only the foolish (or the most foolishly daring) would choose to attempt a break-in in broad daylight.

The birdfeeder is ready to hang and can hold up to 2 cups of seed for your avian buddies.Continue Reading

Be Gotham’s Reckoning: Voice-Changing Bane Mask

Voice Changing Bane Mask The voice-changing Bane mask is available online starting at $52.

The trailers for The Dark Knight Rises pitted Batman against Bane, but little did people know that his true enemy was someone much closer, someone whom he never suspected. Bane was a worthwhile opponent and definitely appealing to the masses: strong, well-built, and mysterious, with an interesting back story. He was also sometimes unintelligible when he spoke with that distinct accent of his because of his mask.

Bane claimed to be Gotham’s reckoning, and now you can channel his character (or at least his voice) by donning this Bane mask. Not only does it give you that bad-ass look, but it also comes with an integrated voice changer to make you sound more like Bane.

Don’t Need It, But Want It: Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

 

If you take your canine best friend everywhere and do everything with him–including swim–then it’s time to get him a life vest of his own, just in case. What better one than this Shark Fin life jacket that keeps him afloat while making him look like the most adorable doggy that ever lived?

As the name implies, the life jacket has a little shark’s fin at the back, which you can use to help pull your dog out of the water if you need to. The life jacket keeps your dog afloat, whether or not he’s doing the doggie paddle or not. With the life jacket on, you don’t have to worry about him going under, although you should keep a close eye on him while he’s in the water with you.

The Shark Fin life jacket costs $39.98.

Keep Cards Like a Boss: Mini Briefcase Business Card Case

Mini Briefcase Card Case

This looks just like one of those briefcases that the girls on Deal or No Deal brandish until their number is called and they have to open it to reveal the amount within. However, the only thing you’ll find when you flip this open are business cards, because that’s the only thing that’ll fit inside it.

Pictures don’t lie, but they can be pretty deceiving. For instance, what you see above is actually the Mini Briefcase Business Card Case, which looks just like the regular-sized version at first glance.

Fashion Has Changed: Tron Hoodie

Tron Hoodie1

 

Tron’s legacy goes on. You might not agree with the computer effects the moviemakers used to make Jeff Bridges look several decades younger, but you have to agree that the Tron cycle was truly something else. And now you can wear it–or at least, a hoodie inspired by it–and look just as awesome.

This Tron hoodie was designed by HDDoobie and it even sports neon strips that actually glow for good measure.
