Damnit, Expelliarmus: ‘Harry Potter’ Dementor Prank

Remember those soul-sucking creatures from Harry Potter that can seal your fate with a single, fatal kiss? If you’re a fan of the franchise, then you probably do. Two dudes decided to have a little fun with the character by bringing it to life. Save for a hooded black robe and a dude who does a good impression of being possessed, the duo don’t have any props but their little prank was still a roaring success. I almost feel bad for all the people they scared…well, almost.

Half of them probably didn’t get the Harry Potter reference but seeing such strangeness right before your very eyes might be enough to freak an average person out. I know I probably would’ve been, too. Check it out!

TMNT Trailer Gives Rise to the Michaelangelo Meme

TMNT Meme

Michael Bay is at the helm of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie reboot and he’s caused a lot of buzz with the direction that he’s chosen to go with the franchise. Some die-hard fans were ticked off at Bay’s need to tweak the turtles’ origins, but they didn’t have difficulty finding humor in their appearance. Specifically, that of Michaelangelo.

The first trailer for TNMT was released recently and what stood out the most to some was Michaelangelo’s odd appearance. Mainly, the fact that he looks like a cross between Shrek and Lizard from the Amazing Spider-Man. This gave rise to a new meme that has since taken off: the Michaelangelo. Hit the break to check out more!

MacGuyver Tool Is More Puzzle Than Useful

macgyver-kit

That’s sort of the point of a MacGuyver Toolkit though, isn’t it? Of course this one isn’t called “MacGuyver Toolkit” for trademark reasons, but calling a little tin box containing seemingly unrelated and potentially useless things an ‘Action Hero Toolkit’ isn’t fooling anyone. You’ll probably spend more time trying to figure out how to use the items than doing anything useful with them, but that’s half the fun in this. So what does $10 buy you?

Bobby Pin – Pick locks or keep your mullet funky fresh with this heroic hair product.

Strike-Anywhere Match – Seven second campfire.

Rubber Band – Bazinga!

Bubble Gum – Not just for chewing.

Birthday Candle – Suitable for a “Happy Birthday MacGyver” cupcake. Or slow burning fuse.

Paper Clip – TPS reports should be stapled. Bombs should be defused with a paper clip.

Shoelace – Makeshift handcuffs. Makeshift shoe binder.

1¢ Stamp – Cover your laptop webcam to protect yourself from the NSA. Or send a postcard in 1873.

Duct Tape – Exactly as strong as MacGyver’s jawline.

Cloak App Helps You Avoid Those You’d Rather Not See

cloak app (620x350)

There are many applications that let you find your friends nearby; Cloak does the exact opposite and gives you the tools to avoid those you’d rather not run into. Created by former Buzzfeed creative director Chris Baker, Cloak lets you tag some of your friends as “undesirables” (say a nasty ex, or that creepy guy at the office that you have no choice but to work with) and then keeps track of their whereabouts through their own check ins and public geo information. If you happen to wander within a preset radius of their known location, Cloak notifies you and gives you the chance to run away.

The tagline is “incognito mode for real life” and we’re kind of really digging the idea. It’s free, although iOS only at the moment.

When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go: Airpnp Bathroom Rental App

AirPnP

 

Music festivals and events like the Mardi Gras are all fun and games–until somebody needs to use the toilet and discovers that there’s not a public restroom in sight. Not to worry though, because Airpnp is here to save the day. It’s an app that hooks you up with a private toilet that you can pay to use at a location near you. If you’re up for making some extra cash, then you can also log on to Airpnp and put your bathroom up for rent.

Airpnp came about from the personal experiences of its founders, who are both New Orleanians who’ve gone through the pain of being unable to find a place where they can pee in peace–and legally.

The founders are both born and raised New Orleanians and during the Mardi Gras they routinely experienced the pain point of having no place to legally urinate. This problem is often solved by using what is known as a “rogue pee.” If caught the person faces a weekend in Orleans Parish Prison. Yet this stiff penalty doesn’t stop thousands upon thousands of “rogue pees.”

You can check out Airpnp HERE.

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.

Pet Safe Pet Paint: It Exists

white

Some of your will roll their eyes and want to tell us that this has been around for years. It probably has, but guess what, we’d never seen it. Shame on us, we suppose. But for those of you equally in the dark, PetPaint seems to be the most effective way to strip your pet from whatever dignity a pet might have. It’ll make you look like that guy (or gal) but hey, if getting noticed is your thing, you’re but a few clicks away. This product is safe for the animals to lick and chew, and is usually applied with the use of a stencil. A can of spray costs around $10, while a stencil is $5.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures of dogs being treated like art class projects.

Flappy Bird Playing Robot Is Better Than You

Flappy-Bird-Robot

We’d like to think the Flappy Bird mania is dying down, but we’re not sure. Just a couple of days ago we found out that someone had sold an iPad Mini preloaded with the game for $8,000, so crazy people are still crazy it seems. And it’s in the midst of all this craze that we now turn our attention to Liu Yang and Shi Xuekun, two developers from the Shaanxi province of China, who’ve created a robotic contraption that plays the game, and plays is well. Using a webcam, the swing arm of an old hard drive and a stylus, this machine manages to blaze through the pipes like nobody’s business.

The point? Really, there isn’t. This is just a fun project and maybe a demonstration of skill from two guys who claim they took only four days to build and code the whole thing. Check the video out to see how it fares.
