Cat Ear Motorcycle Helmets Are A Thing That Exists

casco-moto-orejas-gato

We’re all for having a little bit of originality, but we’re not sure how to feel when that effort involves strapping something like these cat ear motorcycle helmets to our heads. They’re called the Neko-Helmets and they use a IXS-1000 base, which is then customized with these fibreglass ears. They apparently offer no additional wind resistance up to 60mph, and will break off in case of a fall. At 1,780 grams, they’re not the lightest helmets on the road, but it’s not like you were expecting that when purchasing a novelty item. Prices start at $495 and go up to $660.

Star Wars, Star Wars, Windshield Wiper Covers, Star Wars, Star Wars…

lightsaber-windshield-wiper-covers

When Disney bought Lucasfilm and the rights to the Star Wars franchise, we figured they’d recoup their investment quite fast. Considering the apparent fact that pretty much everything and anything is now a Star Wars product, we’re more than certain we were right. Consider these rear windshield wiper covers in the shape of a Lightsaber. They don’t actually do anything useful, like most other Star Wars merch, but if you’re somehow running out of ways to showcase your undying love for George’s little creation, you now have yet another item to add to your collection. They cost $15 and come in a variety of colors. The company, WiperTags, also makes a bunch of different non-Star-Wars rear windshield wiper covers, like daggers, swords, and chainsaws.

Of Course There’s a Napping Aid Shaped Sort Of Like A Hand

chin_rest_1

Well, maybe calling it a ‘napping aid’ is a little much, since you’re unlikely to be able to actually sleep on this thing. You will however have both of your hands free to continue doing whatever it is you do at work, while a third, plastic hand holds your head up. Sure, The Chin Rest Arm is promoting somewhat of a slacker style of doing things, but you can convince yourself that it can help you improve your posture or has some other health benefits. It’s completely adjustable, attaches easily to a desk, and it has a soft, cushiony exterior for your comfort. It’s 4,980 yen (about US$40).

Planetary Paperweight For The Science Geek In Your Life

planetary-paperweight

Are we talking about paperweights on OhGizmo!? Yes, yes we are. It’s not any ordinary paperweight though, but a Planetary Paperweight, not unlike the Planetary Lollipops or Planetary Glass Set we wrote about a while back. It’s a fun reminder that our little planet is nothing but a speck of dust in our vast universe, and a cool visual nod to the tiny neighbourhood of our galaxy we happen to inhabit. It’ll look great on the desk of any science-minded loved one in your life, and at $38, it makes a great stocking stuffer for the upcoming Holidays.

Pizza Wrapping Paper Is Perfect For The Holidays

pizza-paper-1

You spend a lot of time thinking about what gifts to buy your loved ones over the Holidays, but let’s face it, you usually just grab whatever wrapping paper they have at the local drug store and call it a day. Taking the time to select carefully shows that extra touch of care, and what better way to show your love than you have your presents wrapped in paper that looks exactly like NYC style pizza? The Gift Couture Pizza Wrapping Paper is a Kickstarter that pitches just that, a pizza-patterned wrapping paper made from 30% post-consumer waste, acid free and archival quality. A $20 pledge will get you 2 sheets of paper, 2 pizza boxes and 2 labels. The sheet measures 18″ by 24″, and the box is 6″ X 6″ X 1.75″.

Clip-On Man Bun

clip-in-man-bun-1

So this exists. We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. Women have had fake boobs, fake butts, fake nails… Give us men a chance, right? Right? No, to be honest, this is an atrocity, yet it hasn’t stopped over 5,000 people from ordering them according to Groupon, the site they’re being sold on. Considering they’re $10, we suppose it’s just the kind of thing someone might order on a whim, to check it out, only to toss it in shame after a few seconds. At least we hope.

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck

pizza-pouch

Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.
