Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Light Switch

han-solo-light-switch

Star Wars related? Check.

Han Solo related? Check.

A little dirty? Check.

Oh, we’re already tired of this “question, check” way of writing… The point is, you’re looking at a pretty cool light switch that’s also somewhat obscene. Perfect for any geek that doesn’t mind offending a little bit. And it should go without saying that this is in no way endorsed by LucasArt, or Disney, or anyone. It’s handmade by someone on Etsy, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they were to receive a C&D shortly, so get yours quick.

It’s $40.

Simple Design Element Gets Rid Of Coffee Drip Marks

drip-free-mug

It’s the simple things, right? Like the above mug, called the Drop Rest, which features a small groove around its body that catches coffee as it inevitably makes its way down the side and onto your nice coffee table, sure to make yet another coffee ring. As long as you’re not dropping half the contents over the side, it should do a decent job a catching it all. Of course, what you’re really doing is trading a relatively easy chore (wiping a table) with a potentially harder one (getting coffee out from that recess). That might be the reason the Drop Rest isn’t available for purchase. But with a good number of you now in possession of a 3D printer, this could make a fun weekend project, no?

This Is A Body Pillow With A Hole For Your Breasts

comfybreasts-pillow-1

Us dudes have it easy: we can sleep face down without anything getting in the way. And while we suspect that given the large number of women who also sleep face down, having breasts isn’t that much of an obstacle. Yet, it’s nice to know that someone out there has your comfort in mind, ladies, especially those of you that are… gifted. Michael C. Riley is in the process of getting funding for Comfy Breasts™ Relaxation System (that’s right, trademarked), a full body length foam pillow with an opening for your bosom. So you can lay flat, face down, in comfort. There are a number of sizes, and a selection of unfortunately awful patterns for the cover, but hey… this is the first we hear of anything like this, so we’re going to cut Michael a little slack for his questionable taste in interior design.

The body pillow is $50, or $100 if you want it with the matching head rest. If fully funded, it’ll ship in June.

SURESwivel Dog Tether Sure Is Better Than A Stake

sureswivel-360-degree-swiveling-tangle-free-pet-tie-out-1

Being a dog in this world can be as fantastic as it can be gruelling. We suppose we could say that about humans, but let’s not digress. The point is, well-taken-care-of animals have responsible owners constantly on the lookout for their best interests. If your canine is of the outdoors variety and you care for him, you’re going to have to think about how to keep him inside your yard, while allowing it to move around somewhat at will. A chain is a common solution, but it can limit his freedom of movement. The SURESwivel tether is infinitely better than planting a stake in the middle of the yard because no matter how many times Rex runs around it, the ball-and-socket mechanism will keep the chain from getting tangled up in the anchor point. It comes with six spiral stakes that you hammer into the ground and which securely fasten the device to prevent even the most enthusiastic dog from pulling free.

It’s $70.

BBQ Bruce Handrail Grill Lets Your Enjoy The Summer Right On Your Balcony

bbq_bruce_handrail_grill

Living in a small apartment with a tiny balcony has a way of giving you perspective on how much space is “enough” space. But aside fro being a lesson in spatial frugality, it can also be a frustrating stumbling block on one of the summer’s greatest pleasures: BBQing. If that balcony of yours simply doesn’t fit a regular sized grill, along with a couple chairs and a tiny table, then perhaps you should consider the BBQ Bruce Handrail Grill. Taking up no more space than a regular plant pot, the charcoal powered grill gives you just enough space to flip a couple of burgers. That’s more than enough, and at 59€ (roughly $77), should be every living-in-a-box-of-sardines’ urban dweller next purchase.

You should, of course, make sure you’re actually allowed to use this on your balcony first.

Bathing Bad Bath Salts

bathing bad bath salts

That seems like a combination made in Hell. Bath salts are all the rage amongst the drug-consuming, face-eating scum of the Earth. Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that Breaking Bad is only three months away from returning to the tube, so it only makes sense to combine the excitement of one with the… allure of the other in a product that Walter White would surely approve of. Bathing Bad Bath Salts are “a blend of coarse and jumbo ancient salts and organic essential oils, which create a relaxing and rejuvenating bath time experience.” And if truly made in Albuquerque, New Mexico (as the label seems to indicate), we would be impressed enough to keep these around as a prop, and just not use them to even bathe in.

It’s £15 or roughly $23.

Worst Alarm Clock Ever

simple-flip-over-alarm-clock-xl

The Lexon Flip Alarm Clock is a simple alarm clock that you turn off by simply flipping it over. We think it’s stupid, because honestly, who’s going to wake up when it’s this darn easy to turn the alarm off? Sure, you could argue that pressing a button isn’t all that much harder than this, but think about it. Pressing a button requires a little more coordination than just flipping an object over, maybe just enough coordination to force you awake.

It’s £29 or roughly $44.

These Are Fancy Corn On The Cob Holders

dino-corn-1

Lana Filippone designed the above T-Rex corn of the cob holders. She actually designed a bunch of them as part of a design competition for Imm-Living, which she won. That means that not only are they really cool to look at, they’re going to be made available for you to purchase soon. We’re not sure when, or for how much. But you can hit the jump for more pictures and links.

Would You Care For Some Mana… Tea?

manatea-tea-infuser-xl

Quirky tea infusers are popular round these parts. Remember the Mr.Tea infuser from last October? Or the Deathstar infuser from last August? Or even the Robot Tea Infuser from last November? We think the ManaTea takes the cake. Just look at him, just chilling on that tea cup, soaking his silicone bottom for your drinking enjoyment. And he’s all of $10, a steal!
