Suitcase Turns Scooter Turns Suitcase!

Scooter

Dragging suitcases about has always been a hassle for most of us; but now, things are about to take a dramatic turn. He Liangchai, a Chinese entrepreneur, has come up with a unique concept of a suitcase that can be transformed into a scooter. The scooter, which is capable of transporting two people, is a multi-functional commuter that is equipped with features like a GPS navigator, a horn and even a burglar alarm. The handle of the suitcase is the scooter’s handlebar, which, when pulled up, allows drivers to use it as a steering input, brake and throttle. It features a built-in lithium-ion battery that can cover a maximum distance of 37 miles at 12 miles per hour. When it hits the market, the price estimate is between £380 (about $640) and £2,800 (about $4,700), depending on the type of model.

Shower Gel Dispenser that Will Make You Go “Eeew!”

Nose shower gel dispenser1

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.

YankMe Candles Bring Disgusting Scents Like ‘Dutch Oven’ to Your Home–Well, Sort Of!

YankMe Candle

 

Can you imagine lighting up a candle that smells like urinal mints or skid marks? What about dutch oven and dog vomit-scented candles? Not very appealing, are they? These are exactly what the labels of YankMe Candles say, and those are the scents that’ll hit you the moment you open the lid.

Who in their right mind would buy candles with such unpleasant scents? Nobody, obviously. YankMe knows that, and they’re only yanking your chain because the candles don’t really smell like what their labels claim once you burn them. There’s actually smelly disc on the inside that’s emanating the stink of urinals and farts, but once you get that out of the way, you’ll be treated to soothing scents that you’d expect from a regular ol’ candle.

The candles retail for $14.99 each.

Garden Godzilla Eats Your Gnomes

gnome-eat-2

Garden Gnomes are so passé, and if you want to make a loud statement to that effect, look no further than the Rampaging Kaiju Garden Gnome. We’re not sure why it’s still called a gnome, since it’s depicted actually eating a bunch of these, but hey, we didn’t pick the name. All we can tell you is that this statue is made of resin, stands 9″ tall by 6″ wide at base and 7″ deep (inc. tail), and is unfortunately out of stock at the moment. But if you wait until the end of June, you can own one for all of $25.

Five O’Clock Wall Clock: Because It’s the Best Time of the Day

5 Oclock Wall Clock

 

Five o’clock. It’s the time of day that you look forward to the most, each and every single weekday. And on weekends if you’ve got work on those days, too. It’s ironic how time seems to crawl by so slowly when you’re at work or doing some mundane chore or errand that you couldn’t get out of.

If you feel like that most of the time, then you might want to get one of these Five O’clock wall clocks. As you can see, it only has the number five printed on its face. All you have to do is glance over quickly to check how far or how close the hour hand is to five with no other numbers to distract you.

You can get the clock for $100.

7-11 Caters To Hipsters (Maybe?) With The Mason Jar/Mustache Straw Combo

140512_slurpeejar

Mason jars and mustaches galore, it’s a hipster party that I adore! See, we’re poets?…

Or maybe not.

Anyway, that was our half-hearted attempt to segue into the news that 7-11 stores are announcing the launch of the above novelty mustache straws and Slurpee mason jars. We believe they’re catering to hipsters not only because of the obvious association, but because the company appears to admit as much in their press release with the words “on-trend Slurpee accessories”. We think, however, that they’re poking fun at the trend more than anything; it’s not like any self-respecting hipster would ever be caught dead in a 7-11. And that’s just fine by us.

There are four straws, unofficially named “The British, The Handlebar, The Hogan after wrestler Hulk Hogan, and The Swanson.” It’ll cost you $3 for the jar, $1 for the straw, and the first slurpee is included.
