The Stuff of Nightmares: Web Spider Fangs Pillow

Spider Fangs Pillow

This pillow won’t help you sleep at all. In fact, it might even cause you to wake up screaming and sweating in the middle of the night. The throw pillow features a close-up image of Sydney funnel-web spider, which was taken by Alex Wild. The amount of detail he was able to capture is astounding. Even the fangs look like they’re popping out of the pillow.

If you feel at home with spiders–or, well, with larger-than-life images of spiders on a throw pillow–then you can get one here. The pillows are available in a variety of sizes, with prices starting at $28.95.

Giant French Fries Bed: Lay On a Bed of Ketchup

Supersize Bed

 

You probably shouldn’t get this bed if you’re on a diet. In fact, you shouldn’t be thinking about how much you want it either, seeing as you’re turning over a new leaf and aiming for a healthier lifestyle. But you want it anyways.

Fries are fatty, greasy, and totally unhealthy…but you love them anyway. Not that this Supersize Bed is anything like the real thing, but you won’t be able to stop thinking about fries and how much you want to stuff your face with them since you’ll be lying on gigantic fries pillows all night.

ElectroVine: A Green Extension Cord

ElectroVine

You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. That applies to a lot of things, extension cords included. Okay, so it’s not like they’re that offensive, but they do make nightstands and shelves and wherever else they can be found look very unsightly. If you’re particular about how your home looks and want an alternative to the usual bright orange cord you’ve got, then here it is: the electroVine.

It gives your home a touch of green, even if it’s artificial. It’s basically an extension cord dressed up in the guise of vine. It adds to the decor of your home while being completely functional at the same time. What’s not to like?

Mega Hammock: Now You Can Chill With the Whole Gang

Mega Hammock_001

 

What can beat lying on a hammock on a warm summer’s day with a cold drink in hand and not a care in the world? Doing the same thing but with your friends, that’s what! Most people don’t have enough hammocks (or trees to hang the hammocks on) in their backyards to accommodate everyone in the gang, but that’s what the Mega Hammock is for.

It’s huge enough to fit up to three people, but a few more can probably squeeze in as it has a total weight rating of a thousand pounds. The lying surface measures 8 feet by 5 feet, so as long as you have a big empty space out back, then this should fit. The hammock is made from handcrafted from coated ripstop nylon by an FAA-certified parachute rigger, so you’re assured of its quality and durability.

The Mega Hammock retails for $375.

Fuut Desk Foot Rest

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t–and when it doesn’t, then that’s when the Fuut Desk Foot Rest will come in handy.

Think of it as a hammock for your feet, since it already looks the part. Just attach the strings to the side of your desk tot stretch it out, and voila! It’s ready to use.

A Welcoming Prank: 50 Dollar Bill Welcome Doormat

50 Dollar Door Mat

Now isn’t this is a welcome sight for anyone who comes wandering to your front door: a 50 dollar bill on the welcome mat, ripe for the picking. They’ll quickly realize they’ve been had the moment they bend down to pluck the bill off the mat. That’s because the hyper-realistic fifty dollar bill is imprinted right on the doormat itself, so the fact that it’s fake isn’t obvious until their face is a few inches away.

You won’t make new friends with this doormat out there, but you’ll be able to have a laugh or two at the expense of your older friends. The 50 Dollar Bill Welcome doormat retails for $24.

What Will They Think Of Next: Pillow Spoon Rest

Pillow Spoon Rest

So this is a pillow spoon rest. There’s not much to say, because the name says it all. It’s basically a miniature pillow made from silicone where you’re supposed to rest your mixing spoon on while you’re busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. You could use a plate, but then, where’s the fun in that? You could also choose to go without it and rest your sauce-laden spoon against the pan or bowl, but things can get messy pretty quick if you don’t clean off the spoon as much as possible before doing so.

The Pillow Spoon Rest retails for $7.99 and will be available later this September.

Shell Stool Showcases Explosive Design

Shell Stool

 

You don’t have the bite the bullet to show everyone how tough you are. Instead, sit on one, and look cool while you’re at it with these Shell Stools designed by Jake Phipps.

They might fit best in the dens of hunters and other hobbyists, but don’t count them out just yet because they’ll add some glitz to whatever room they’re added to, regardless of the homeowner’s particular hobbies or interests. The stools basically look like giant spent ammunition cartridges. They’re available in a bronze or silver finish, and the coolest part? They can be joined together to form a low table or a bench. Pretty neat, eh?

Meet Haiku, The Connected Fan

haiku_smart_ceiling_fan

It’s getting to the point where every single home furnishing will be connected and controllable through smartphones, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We already have smart locks, and smart smoke detectors, so why not add smart ceiling fans to that list? The Haiku Fan with SenseME technology connects to your WiFi, which allows you to control it via your smartphone. Add to that an infrared motion detector, a thermometer and a hygrometer (for humidity) and you’ve got a fan that knows when to speed up or slow down all by itself. It’ll start up as you enter the room, and adjust its speed based on your preferences and current conditions, which you set through an app. It’ll wind down as the night falls, while a special “Sleep Mode” slowly lowers the air speed as you fall asleep. There’s even an alarm mode that’ll try to wake you up with a combination of air, lights and sounds.

Unfortunately, we’re looking at a high-end ceiling fan, which means a high-end price. It’s $1,045 for the fan with SenseME tech, and $900 for the same fan without any of the connected features. That means you’re paying a $150 premium for the SenseME technology, which isn’t that much more when you’re already considering a $900 ceiling fan purchase. But for anyone else, well, turning a knob isn’t that hard, is it?
