The Simple Rubiks Cube’s Got Nothing On The X-Cube

the-x-cube

Look, there are people solving Rubiks’ Cubes in less than 6 seconds; the world record stands at 5.25s! So as much as the little puzzles do stump the average, casual player, it’s fair to say that an upgrade was needed. That’s where the X-Cube comes in. It’s the next generation of complexity in 3D puzzles:

The X-Cube can take on 594,469,003,618,866,131,911,871,299,584,000,000,000 (5.94*10^38, or 594 novemdecillion ) different permutations. That’s over 13 quintillion times more permutations than the original 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube.

Is it impossible to solve? Well, according to the company if you can solve a 3X3X3 Cubiks, you can solve this. Eventually. Maybe with some help.

It’s $32.

Opposuits Releases Star Wars Suits

screen-shot-2016-09-26-at-7-22-58-am

A little over a year ago we wrote about Opposuits’ PacMac Suits. We thought back then that these were the bee’s knees, but now that we’ve seen the company’s Star Wars suits, we have to reconsider. They come in two flavours called “Strong Force” and “Stormtrooper” and will definitely make… some kind of statement wherever you wear them. What’s even better is you’ll be able to own either one without breaking the bank, since they asking price is $110, with up to a 10% discount if you buy 10 of them at once.

Pepsi Is Releasing A Limited Edition ‘Pepsi Perfect’, The Soda from BTTF II

pepsi-perfect-2

In a few short days, October 21st 2015 will arrive. That happens to be the day Marty McFly arrived in the “future”, where he was welcomed with a laundry list of then-futuristic innovations that mostly failed to come to market. Except of course for those that didn’t, because of a marketing tie-in from some clever company. This time it’s Pepsi, and they’re releasing a very limited edition of Pepsi Perfect, the soda you see in one of the scenes in the movie.

Fans located in the U.S. can get their hands on 1 of 6,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles, each outfitted in a special collectible case. The 16.9 oz. bottles will contain Pepsi Made with Real Sugar and will sell for $20.15.

Well, that’s a lot of dollars to pay for something you probably won’t even drink because you realize it’s a collectible and might be wroth a couple extra dollars on eBay in 15 years from now or something. Then again, it’s a collectible, so if you’re a BTTF fan just suck it up and pony up.

The Mewgaroo Hoodie Has a Special Pouch To Carry Your Cat In

mewgaroo-1

You love your cat and want him with you at all times; in this respect you’re a normal human being. Now, since you love him so much, you could always carry him around in your arms (if he lets you)… but why be so primitive when you can don a hoodie specially made for the occasion? The Mewgaoo Hoodie has a special pouch that’s large enough to accommodate a kitty. There’s a removable liner so things don’t get too gross in there. And to further emphasize that this is a cat-centric garment, the hoodie features cat ears on the hood, and cat paws on the sleeves. So by buying this piece of clothing you accomplish a few things: you provide your feline friend with a more comfortable vehicle, and you proudly proclaim to the world that you may have a… robust love of cats. Nothing too weird with that, to be honest, and at ?5,980 (about $50), it doesn’t cost a fortune.

Steel Star Trek Coasters Boldly Go Where No…

startrek_coasters_1

You know… we’re groaning at the thought of having to write yet another pun-filled headline that’s a Star Trek or Star Wars reference. So you get the idea. Here are some coasters with the Star Fleet insignia stamped on them. They come in a set of 5, are 4″ on each side, and are made from 3/16” thick, Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel with a felt backing, so they’ll feel heavy and premium. There are many other ways of keeping your drinks from ruining your tabletop, but very few that proclaim quite as loudly just which brand of nerd you are (and by the way, we mean “nerd” in the best possible way here). The Star Trek Coasters are made by Easy seller ApocalypseFab, and cost $44 for the set.

Arby’s Has An Off-The-Menu ‘Meat Mountain’ Option

Meat-Mountain

A while ago, Arby’s got tired of people thinking they only serve roast beef. To fight that perception, they created the poster pictured below; it’s a gigantic creation featuring a sample of every type of meat served at the restaurants. It was only meant to be illustrative, but then of course customers started asking for the very sandwich on the picture. Can you blame them? Arby’s, loathe to turn down anyone’s money, accepted the challenge and started serving the ‘Meat Mountain’ to customers who’d specifically request it. It’s a $10 sandwich, and it’s not on the menu, but they’ll sell you one if you ask for it. And here’s what’s in it:

2 chicken tenders
1.5 oz. of roast turkey
1.5 oz. of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 oz. of corned beef
1.5 oz. brisket
1.5 oz. of Angus steak
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1.5 oz. roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon

Science: What Does The Fox Really Say?

No, it’s not “Tchoff tchoff tchoff, tchoff tchoff tchoff tchoff, tchoff tchoff”!

Yes, we’re a few months late on the Ylvis craze, but in our defence, the above video from SciShow just came out. If the song left you wondering what a Fox actually says, the answer is 3 minutes away.
