The WineOvation Is A Gun-Shaped Bottle Opener


We’re not sure who this is going to appeal to, aside from maybe the most fervent NRA members, but there you have it: a gun-shaped wine bottle opener. Yes, the WineOvation is a device meant to look exactly like a revolver, and whose only purpose is to open wine bottles. You unholster the thing, insert the bottle, and pull the trigger. The mechanism will slowly pull the cork out and stop when it’s done; pushing the trigger the other way will spit it back out. We suppose it’s worth a couple of comments from your guests the first time they see it, and for $40, we suspect it’s worth the novelty.

There’s Catnip Wine So You Don’t Have To Drink Alone!


You fancy a little nightcap before hitting the sack? Or maybe you don’t want to think of it like that, maybe you’re more upfront: you like getting smashed by yourself? Look, we don’t judge, but if you’ve grown tired of doing that alone, but still can’t stand the company of humans, you might want to consider enrolling your cat into your solo drinking activities. Yes, your cat. Pictured above is The MosCATo, and the Pinot Meow, two catnip-based non-alcoholic drinks for your feline friend to enjoy. They’re made from a proprietary blend of catnip, fresh beets, and natural preservatives. And what do they do to your cat?

Well, depending on how much they drink – the effects will vary. When cats smell catnip, they tend to get funny, move around and play a lot. The exact opposite occurs when they ingest catnip. They normally will become more “mellowed” out when they drink the wine so it might actually help for those restless nights.

Mellowed out kitty? Yeah, they already spend 3/4 of their life asleep, so we’re not sure where the fun is in this drink. But we imagine it does’t matter anyway, you’ll be too smashed to care. It’s $12 for an 8 Mewounce (get it?) bottle.

Wonder How Your Baby Feels In That Stroller? You Can Find Out With This Adult-Sized Version


Because you can never be too sure that your baby is comfortable enough, the US baby products company Kolocraft has created an adult-sized version of their Contours Bliss stroller for you to try out. That’s right, it’s an exact replica of the baby stroller, only it’ll fit a fully grown adult and give him or her the riding experience of a lifetime. You can find out what it feels like to be pushed around by someone, and get a sense of just how comfy your little one is in the company’s stroller. It’s not for sale, obviously, but you can book a ride when the company has their next test-drive at Chicago’s Mary Bartelme Park, on June 7th. Sure, there might be a lineup for your turn, but you’re all adults and no one is going to throw a tantrum, right?

The Tables Have Turned: You Can Be The One Licking Your Cat This Time


Cats are great. Even their little raspy tongues licking you is kind of fun. But haven’t you ever wished you could be the one liking them, rather than the other way around? No? Well… neither have we. But the folks behind Licki Brush seem to think there’s a market for this. Either that, or we’re looking at a very late April’s Fool. The Licki Brush is meant to be inserted in your mouth, and used to brush/lick your cat without getting his fur in your mouth. There’s a website, and they mention an upcoming Kickstarter, though that’s all the info we have. How much? Is it real? Is anyone going to buy this? It’s all up in the air now, but we thought it cute nevertheless.

Floor Cleaning Slippers


You guys remember the Baby Mop? It was a onesie lined with microfibre finger pads that cleaned the floor as your toddler crawled around. That was an awesome product! Well now you can have the same sort of “innovation” for the rest of the family. The Floor Cleaning Slippers’ soles are lined with microfibre finger pads as well, which pick up dust and small debris as you walk around. Sure, it’s only going to clean the most walked-around areas in your home, leaving corners to collect all the dust bunnies you didn’t pick up. But we suppose it’s better than nothing. The soles do detach easily for cleaning. And at $5 for a pair, who not get one? Oh… ‘sexism alert’: they only come in ladies sizes 6 to 9.

What’s The Point: Champagne Machine Gun


So, are you one of those people that goes to clubs, gets table service, and then proceeds to shower everyone in your vicinity with obscene amounts of Champagne? Probably not, I mean, why would you be reading this website if you’ve got so much money burning a hole in your pocket. In the off chance you wandered here by accident though, can we interest you in this Champagne Machine Gun? It just holds your bottle so you can look like you’re shooting people as you spray them with your overpriced bubbly. There’s no real mechanism there; you still have to open your bottle manually, and shake it up, and even put your finger over the opening to get any kind of real pressure. Well, we’re not sure about the finger part, since it does come with a “diffuser” spout so we think maybe that does the job. Oh, and it’s $459. It comes in Gold, Chrome, and Rose Gold colors, and considering the price and ostentatiousness, we think there’s a decent chance there’s a market for this. We just don’t think they read this site.

The Beer Briefcase Is A Thing That Exists


Spending too much on craft beers might not be enough to make you feel like these beers are really special. What you need is to wrap them up in a special briefcase with a beer-shaped foam placeholder, so that way you can look like a true fancy pants beer connoisseur when you get to the party. The Beer Briefcase does just that, and it comes with 6 fancy pants craft beers already: Titan IPA by Great Divide, Two Hearted Ale by Bell’s, Hop Ottin’ by Anderson Valley, Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point, Racer 5 by Bear Republic, Indian Brown Ale by Dogfish Head. We don’t know the first thing about fancy craft beer, so we’re hoping they, and the briefcase, justify the $75 asking price.

Global Warming Mug Shows You What Happens When The World Gets Hotter


As far as pick-me-ups go, waking up in the morning to a visual reminder that a good chunk of the world will one day be under water is about as good as it gets. The Global Warming mug uses heat sensitive paint that shows you just which parts of the world are likely to end up underwater once the planet gets hot enough. Which it will, since we’re pretty much cooking the crap out of it. Looks like Florida’s a goner, along with most of the Eastern sea board and… is that Panama there in the middle? In any case, for $19, it could make an awesome gift for that Global Warming Denier in your circle…

Minimaterials: Like Real Building Materials, Only Mini


Maybe you sometimes fantasize about how cool it would be to play around with bricks, and cinder blocks, and mortar, and just build shit. But then reality sinks in and you see how impractical it would be; what would you even do with the stuff you build? It’s not like you’re ready to commit to making an actual structure… Well, that’s where Minimaterials comes in. They make miniature versions of the big boy materials you can’t play with. Yes, real concrete cinder blocks, real mortar, real wooden pallets. The cinder blocks, for instance, measure 1.3″ x .66″ x .66″, and a 24-pack that comes on a wooden pallet costs all of $15. They even have Jersey Barriers and red bricks for your mini construction needs.
