‘Break Club’ is Where Angry People Go to Vent and Break Stuff

Smash Club

Have you ever gotten so angry that you just felt compelled to start breaking things? You see it often enough in movies where the lead characters blow off some steam by breaking stuff. I guess it works somewhat, because people actually do it in real life, too. Back when I was still in high school, I was sleeping over at a friend’s house once when her mom flew into a rage and threw a couple of plates around. Needless to say, she regretted breaking her fine china the next morning and it was one of the worst sleepovers ever.

The good news is that there’s now a place where people can go if they want to break stuff without regrets. At least, for those in Buenos Aires, Argentina, anyway. It’s called the Break Club, and it’s a place where members can throw things around and hit stuff with sticks to release (and hopefully, be rid of) their pent-up anger.

Oublio Shows You What’s Hot on Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, and More

Oublio

A few minutes of Reddit a day keeps the worries away. I don’t know about you, but that statement definitely applies to me, at least, especially when I’ve had a really long day at work. Sometimes, I try to sneak a peek or two at my favorite stress-relief sites during my lunchbreak, but since I don’t have the luxury of time, I browse on over to Oublio instead.

It’s a site that shows the most popular image on Reddit and a bunch of other micro-blogging sites and social networks like Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Flickr. You might not see much, but it’s enough to let you know what’s currently trending on all five sites without having to check out all of them.

Pierpaolo Lazzarini’s Water Jet Looks Like Something From the Future

Jet Capsule

It’s not a boat and it’s not a jetski, but it looks like a cross between the two, albeit a really futuristic one. This is the jet capsule designed by Pierpaolo Lazzarini in collaboration with Luca Solla from S3. The egg-shaped boat is built with a fiberglass hull with stainless steel handrails, with a plush interior and comfortable-looking seats that can accommodate up to eight people.

The craft measures just 7.5 meters and has a powerful 325-hp Yanmar diesel engine with a Hamilton waterjet to reach speeds of up to 25 knots. The boat’s designer explains that the idea for the craft was based on “having a boat small enough to be easily maneuvered, yet spacious enough to take a handful of friends out for drinks, over to a port for an evening’s entertainment.”

Let Her Rip: Shreddies Underwear Will Filter Out Your Farts

Shreddies

Do you fart a lot? If you do, you’ve probably already mastered the after-fart poker face where you just sit still with a stony expression and continue doing whatever it is you’re doing, so as to deflect suspicion that you are, indeed, the farter. If you don’t, well, you probably don’t like beans that much.

Frequent farters will be happy to hear that fart-filtering underwear now exists. It’s called Shreddies, and it has an embedded layer of Zorflex, a thin and flexible carbon cloth that’s behind the underwear’s flatulence filtering action.

Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.

Shreddies is available for men (as boxer briefs and support boxers) starting at $40 and for women (as briefs and high-waisted briefs) starting at $30.

Mood Cars? This Nissan Changes Color, Depending on the Temperature

Mood Car

Remember those mood rings that were so popular back in the day? The ones that came with a fancy stone in the middle that apparently changed color, depending on your mood? You probably already know by now that those rings didn’t really change in color based on your mood; rather, they turned from one shade to another because of the temperature.

Following the same concept is UK body shop Auto Kandy who coated this Nissan with temperature-sensitive paint, effectively turning it into a “mood car” of sorts.

Spoiler Shield Filters Spoilers from Your Facebook and Twitter Feeds

Spoiler Shield

Got friends who are blabbermouths? Then you need Spoiler Shield. It’s a filter that identifies and blocks spoilers on your Facebook and Twitter feeds, so no one can spoil the ending of your favorite TV show or reveal who won in the finals of whatever sport you’re into before you get a chance to see it for yourself.

The app is essentially a viewer for your social media accounts. You’ll have to link your profile to the app and grant access to it before it can do its thing. You will then be asked to select items that you’d like to “shield” yourself from, which is provided in a pre-set list. For example, under the NFL and MLB categories, you can choose teams that you don’t want to hear about from the list. There’s also a TV show category, which includes the likes of True Blood, Game of Thrones, and American Idol.

Spoiler Shield is currently available for iOS and can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store. An Android version is currently in development.

Japan’s Seven Stars Steampunk Train Offers Luxurious Cabins for $11,500

Japan Steampunk Train

If you’re a tourist in Japan, then you have to try riding their bullet trains at least once during your visit. They’re definitely fast, but some might argue that they don’t offer the most comfortable of seats on board. That might be true–until the Seven Stars train came along. It’s a train that’s decked out in steampunk-style exteriors on the outside and luxurious comfort on the inside.

For example, Deluxe Suite A features a spacious 226-square meter room and a five-foot panoramic window that offers a gorgeous view of Kyushu from the rear end of the train. Every one of the cabins is covered in intricate wood decorations and high paneled ceilings.

Rumor Mill: Google’s Nexus 5 to be Released on October 30th

Nexus5

There’s no denying that Google came up with a phone that’s worth every buck with the Nexus 4. It’s got impressive specs for the display and the hardware, and it sports a sleek design on the outside too. Forgive me if I sound biased, but it’s the second smartphone that I got and after making the switch from iOS, I’m finding that it meets most of my expectations and more. 

But will Google raise the bar and do it again with the Nexus 5? The phone hasn’t been released yet, but speculation is running high regarding its specs and release date. Rumor is that Google will be unveiling their latest smartphone by the end of the month, as a case for the device was recently spotted on Amazon’s Italian site.

The release date? October 30th. It makes sense for the case to be released on the same day as the phone, right? So that’s what a lot of people out there are going with.

Attention-Powered Car Slows Down If You’re Not Concentrating

Attention Powered Car

Driving isn’t rocket science, but it still requires a good dose of concentration so you can react quickly to unexpected situations (like another car suddenly swerving into your lane) and avoid accidents. A lot of people like to text or use their phones while they’re driving, and this is one of the most common causes of car accidents. Not only does this put the driver’s life at risk, but it also endangers pedestrians and other drivers and their passengers as well.

With this in mind, Emotiv and the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia have teamed up to develop the Attention Powered Car. It comes with an EPOC neuroheadset by Emotiv that the driver is supposed to put on. The headset measures electrical activity in the brain that can determine the driver’s focus while he or she is driving.
