There’s a Tinfoil Hat On Kickstarter, And It’s Not Quite Tanking Yet

signal-proof-1

Albert Einstein famously said “Only two things are infinite, the Universe and Human Stupidity. And I’m not so sure about the Universe.” When we come across things like the Shield: Signal Proof Headwear, and we realize that they’ve got over 200 backers as of this writing, we are reminded of how right he was. This particular product is a hat you wear to help protect your brain from all that electromagnetic radiation that surrounds you, from “cell phones, wi-fi, satellites, tv and radio, microwaves, electric devices, lights or heavy doses of cosmic rays during the flight”. It’s made from a “special signal proof fabric (100% silver coated shielding fabric)” that allegedly blocks most of these signals. Never mind that there’s no scientific proof that electromagnetic radiation is dangerous to humans, better be safe than sorry, right? A £16 (around $23) pledge will get you a beanie or a cap.

Wanna Make You Cat Feel Like An Astronaut, Try This U-Pet Bubble Carrier

u-pet-carrier-1

He’ll be like a cat astronaut… a catstronaut, you know? No? Ok, before we show ourselves out, you have to check out this U-Pet Innovative Bubble Carrier. It’s a lot like a regular pet carrier, except instead of the usual mesh window that your cat gets to look through, he gets a plexiglas bubble. It’s… totally going to make his experience more exciting, as evidenced by the not-freaked-out-at-all cat in the picture below. Everything else seems to be standard issue pet carrier stuff, with ventilation holes, a soft washable pad, and top & side entries for maximum accessibility. Prices start at $80, but at least one of them is out of stock right now.

You Can Buy A Remote Controlled Wienermobile

RC-wienermobile-3

Some people are pretty passionate about their hotdogs. We’re fans of Oscar Mayer’s wieners as much as the next guy, we just don’t know that we’d want to buy a remote controlled Winermobile. We bet some people will, though. It’s a smaller version of the largish off-road RC toy they came out with last July, only you can actually buy this one. It’s $25 and can actually carry two hotdogs, so it’s a toy with a practical use beyond entertainment. Getting your hands on one will be hard though, since the company plans to sell them in batches, and you’ll have to follow their Twitter account to know when the next batch is up for purchase. Pretty clever, as far as a marketing ploy to get people to follow them is concerned.

This Alarm Clock Slaps You Awake

Face-slapping-Alarm-Clock-by-Simone-Giertz-Featured-image-672x372

Hot on the heels of the alarm clock that physically tosses you out of bed comes news of the alarm clock that slaps you awake. Because placing your alarm out of reach and forcing yourself to stand up isn’t good enough for some, electronics tinkerer Simone Giertz created The Wake-Up Machine, a device that literally slaps your face in the hopes of getting you out of bed. “It is a composition of a rubberized fake arm, a standard alarm clock and a powerful brushed DC motor that runs at 165 rpm – rigged to an Arduino UNO.” Watch the video below to get a breakdown of what Simone’s made.

Clip-On Man Bun

clip-in-man-bun-1

So this exists. We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. Women have had fake boobs, fake butts, fake nails… Give us men a chance, right? Right? No, to be honest, this is an atrocity, yet it hasn’t stopped over 5,000 people from ordering them according to Groupon, the site they’re being sold on. Considering they’re $10, we suppose it’s just the kind of thing someone might order on a whim, to check it out, only to toss it in shame after a few seconds. At least we hope.

Aw: Cat Gloves Make Your Index Finger Look Like A Tail, Work With Smartphones

cat-tail-gloves

That headline pretty much sums up the product. It’s just a quirky little glove with a cat printed on the back, and if you wiggle your finger across your smartphone’s screen, it looks like a wagging cat tail or something. They’re obviously Japanese, where we imagine this sort of thing wouldn’t have people shaking their heads in bewilderment as we think they’ll do here. They seem to cost around 3,980 Yen, which is around $33.

I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore: Bridal Selfie Sticks Are Now A Thing

Reem Acra Bridal Fall/Winter 2016 Runway Show

Selfie sticks… you either hate them or love them. Considering their popularity, we suspect we’re the ones being snobbish about a product the marketplace is clearly clamouring for… but there’s just something so freaking irritating about them. Maybe it’s their intrinsic narcissistic quality, the fact that they’re built specifically for taking better pictures of yourself. Maybe you just look like a tool holding one. Whatever the reason, we can’t help but shake our heads when reading about the Bridal Selfie Stick, pictured above. Because yeah, it totally makes sense that you’d be walking down the aisle with a bedazzled selfie stick pointed at your face. Yeah, no, it’s not like you’re supposed to be excited about joining your life to that of another person, right? It’s much more important that the world knows how you looked while doing so.

Cultural criticism aside, there’s a glimmer of hope in the fact that these don’t seem to be available for purchase just yet. They were spotted at bridal-and-evening-wear-designer Reem Acra’s fashion show recently, and there’s no word that they’ll ever make it to market. But of course, once an idea is out…

Finally: A Nutella Lock

nutella

Wake up in the middle of the night with a Nutella craving, only to find your jar nearly empty because your significant other got to it before you? Yeah, it happens, but you can put a stop to this nonsense. The Nutella Lock is an acrylic contraption specifically designed to accommodate the iconic jar. It’s being sold on eBay Germany, and doesn’t ship stateside. It started out as a bit of a joke by Daniel Schlobloch, a German furniture designer who was tired of his kids stealing the sweet concoction, but now over 250 of these have been pre-oredered and it seems to be taking a life of its own. It’s €9.99 (approx. $11 USD).
