These Are The Cutest Tissue Holders You’ll See All Day

dinosaur-tissue-holder-595x365

Etsy seller shopSparklyPony makes some pretty cool tissue holders. They’re in the shape of various animals, from dinos to whales, and the tissue always comes out of some orifice, which can be both cute and funny. Bunny poop tissue, anyone? Anyone? Ok, we know it’s supposed to represent the bunny’s tail, but, you know… No?

Ok… we have the sense of humour of a 5 year old. Sigh.

In any case, you can get one of these tissue holders for $40. They’re hand-made, one by one, out of wood and latex paint, and “each elephant is stamped, dated, signed, and numbered with its order of purchase.”

The Motorized Tie Rack Will Make You Look Richer Than You Are

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 1.59.04 PM

You could keep your ties in a heap, like most guys we know do. Or you could get the Motorized Tie Rack, and be ‘that guy’. You know, the one who calls you over to his bedroom, excited to show off his latest gadget? And we have to say, this would looks pretty interesting to a specific demographic; we’re thinking recent graduate, less than one year at a new office job, and with enough disposable income to purchase a completely unnecessary, but sort of cool little gadget for the home. This rack accommodates 72 ties, and 8 belts. The LEDs stay on for 10 seconds after the rack stops moving, to give you some time to find your way around in a dark closet. It’s all of $49.

The Home Lie Detector Test Will Enliven Any Family Argument

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 3.55.04 PM

There’s no better argument than the one you can call BS, and then back that up with hard data. Yeah, you’re looking at a lie detector test that you can use at home. It uses the same principles as the polygraphs law enforcement agencies use (heart rate and skin conductivity readings, compared to a baseline), and can tell you with a similar degree of accuracy if your brother really, actually, seriously didn’t flush your hamster down the toilet as payback for you setting his turtle free in the backyard by accident. The device will need to connect to a PC or Mac to work, and unfortunately costs an outrageous $400.

Kernel Filtering Popcorn Bowl Means No More Busted Teeth While Watching Movies

kernel-filtering-popcorn-bowl-1-595x318

Ok, we don’t actually think you can break a tooth if you accidentally bite on an unpopped corn kernel, but it’s sure as heck unpleasant. The above Kernel Filtering Popcorn Bowl tries to mitigate the “danger” by featuring a small compartment at the bottom, covered with a sifting filter that lets only kernels pass through. Fill your bowl up, give it a few good shakes and in theory, you should be able to scarf your popcorn down without worrying about your chompers. It’s made from ceramic, which might help explain its outrageous price: $75.

This Borg Cube Fridge Is All The Refrigeration A Trekkie Needs

star_trek_borg_cube_fridge_1

“The first officially publicized Federation contact with a Borg cube took place in 2365, when the USS Enterprise-D encountered a single cube in System J-25.” This much we know thanks to Google and the first wiki we came across, but we’ll confess to not being familiar with Borg cubes. Seeing as it does look rather cool though, we decided to tell the Trekkies in our audience that they can get a tiny one that doubles as not only a fridge, but also a food warmer. Measuring only 11.5″ on each side, this cube won’t hold a ton of food, and we don’t even really know how it keeps food warm… but we suppose a cramped dorm room might be appropriate for something like this. It does glow green behind the Borg coating, as well as inside. The door does lock to prevent spillage, while the rubber feet prevent it from sliding around. It’s… as good as things are going to get for a mini Borg cube fridge we suppose, and we’re glad Thinkgeek is only asking $150 for it.

Swash Clothing Care System Refreshes Dry-Clean Only Clothes

swash_clothing_system

The thing about clothes that require dry cleaning is that you have to make the trek to the cleaners. That’s a pain, which means they’ll often go for longer periods without getting the attention they need. If you still want to wear them and don’t feel like scaring your companions off, the SWASH™ Express Clothing Care System is able to refresh them between washes.

Simply place clothing inside, insert a SWASH PODS™ cup and press start—your items will be restored and ready to wear in just ten minutes. Removes light wrinkles and neutralizes doors, restores fit that’s lost after wear without pilling or fading, and is safe for most fabrics, including denim, wool, polyester, lycra, cotton,cashmere, sequins, beading and lace; not recommended for silk, leather, velvet, suede or fur.

This kind of convenience clearly comes at a price, and the Swash system is no exception with its $500 price tag.

oldandcold_bookrack

Looking for a creative and appealing way to free up some space in your house? The all-new hanging book rack will allow you to do just that, or at least to get rid of your current bookshelves and racks, and give a unique appeal to your drawing room. You can hang up to twelve books along the wall, giving you a fresh perspective on space management. The strings that hang from the rack are wax-cottoned, and can act as bookmarks, too. You can either hang and display the books like in a normal book shelf, or swivel them a bit to display their titles; and if you adjust the position of the wooden plates, books can be uniformly hung in a straight line. With tons of varieties and wood types to choose from, the hanging book racks are sure to add some flair to your home. Available at Etsy in two variants – the MINI for $110 and the Standard for $210.

Creativity seems to have no boundaries or limits when it comes to making new devices that are not just practical but visually appealing as well. One such creatively designed device is the shower gel dispenser that is shaped like a human nose. A gadget that can be hung over a wall, the dispenser will make you go “eeew!” when the time comes for you to get some shower gel. To get your dose of gel, all you have to do is squeeze the nose until it oozes out from the nostrils! The nose shaped dispenser has three suction cups that make it easy to attach to the wall or shower stall door. Besides it can be easily refilled as well – you just need to unscrew the cap at the back of the dispenser and refill the shower gel. Definitely a creative addition to your bathroom, and only $8.
