Your Water Bottle Looks Too Naked? Put Some Underwear On It!


Because, yeah, sure, why shouldn’t this exist? Right? Underwear for your water bottle? That’s, like, totally normal. And yes, it sure looks like it’s a real product that you can spend $2 to own. For that amount you apparently get 7 different styles, which is about 6 more styles than your average guy has.

We think it might be an attempt to keep your hand dry in the case of a cold bottle condensing water on its side. But still: underwear for your water bottle.

What a time to be alive!

What Your Office Chair Always Needed Was a Batman Cape


Look at that crappy office chair you’re sitting in right now. Just look at it. It’s… well, it’s just a chair, right? Haven’t you ever asked yourself “why isn’t this office chair a superhero chair?” You should have, friend, you should have. Because it turns out now it can be, thanks to the Batman Classic Chair Cape. This wonderful novelty accessory is being made by Entertainment Earth, and first sold at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon. They’re making 2,400 of the things, and if any are left after the show, they’ll sell them to any of you who pre-order one now. These capes are 24-inches long, and should fit just about any type of chair. And we imagine that if they’re successful enough, it’ll be just a matter of time until you find them in other superhero varieties. It’s a very reasonable $25.

Shoes With Light Up Soles


You don’t know you want shoes with light up soles until you want shoes with light up soles. It’s one of those things that only a very narrow demographic band will enjoy, like fans of electronic music and chemical “mood enhancers”, for instance. They’re a bit of a novelty item, sure, and you couldn’t just wear them anywhere, but in the right time and place, these are great. Better yet is the fact you’ll have to pay only $79 to get a pair, which isn’t all that bad considering the 8 hour runtime, and optional cycling colors.

Beer Bottle Stein Lid Is Cool, Somewhat Useful


You guys remember the Das Can in Stein attachment that turned any beer can into a cool beer Stein. Well, the Oktoberfest Party Favor Beer Bottle Stein Lid isn’t quite that elaborate, but it’s still awesome. It’s a metal lid that clips onto the side of a standard beer bottle and prevents insects from taking a swim in your drink; in the process it makes it look a little bit like a Stein. It’s just a quirky way to decorate your drink with a smidge of functionality on the side. At $9, there are worse novelty items to spend your money on.

Gallium Is A Metal That Will Melt In Your Hand


Here’s a fun gift for some science minded friend of yours. Or just about anyone with a slight sense of wonderment at nature’s cool toys. It turns out you can buy a chunk of Gallium, which has a melting point of 85.85F. And, unlike Mercury, it’s non-toxic. This means you can warm it up in your hand to the point where it starts melting. Then we’re not sure what you can possibly do with it, but that’s pretty cool as it is. Many reviewers have mentioned that their children became interested in science and chemistry after they witnessed metal melting in their hands, so we’re pretty confident you’ll love it too. It’s $15 for a 20g sample of 99.99% pure Gallium.

Text Breakups Are Out, In With The Break Up Beans


It used to be that you would break up with your significant other in person. Then, we started doing it over text. Lame, we know, but people will be people. But why stop there? The Break Up Beans seem like the new perfect way to tell your formerly-loved one that you’ve had enough of them. Water the little pot and 5 days later you’ll see two lima beans sprout, with the messages “It’s Over” and “Let’s Be Friends” written on them. By then you’ll have had enough time to pack your bags and rent a motel room somewhere, so it’s brilliant. And it’ll only cost you $7, so you’ll have plenty of cash left over for Late Night Lonely Pizza.

The Strong Enter Key Will Take Your Abuse, So Your Laptop Doesn’t Have To


Think about it: where do you most often take out your petty online frustrations, if not on the Enter key? That troll pissing you off? You’ll punctuate your message with a heavy blow on the key. That browser not loading your website fast enough? You’ll mash the key a few times. Right? They’re built to last, sure, but sooner or later they’ll give up the ghost. So, to save your keyboard, you can purchase the Strong Enter Key. It’s made to do just one thing: serve as an alternate return carriage key. It’s large, presumably made from strong materials, and costs 2,500 Yen (approx. $21 USD).

Disco Dog: Put Your Dog To Work With This LED Dog Vest


It’s cool that you’re taking your pup on a walk, but there he is, enjoying life and getting exercise, while he could be doing something useful instead. If you manage to get your hands on the Disco Dog, a cool vest covered in LEDs, you’ll be able to get your canine friend to display messages in what is sure to be an attention-grabbing fashion. Each vest contains 256 RBG LEDs, which allow you to display any color, scroll text, flash and do a number of animations, all of which are controlled through the companion app. There’s even a Lost Dog function that displays those exact words if Fido wanders out of range of your smartphone, encouraging passersby to help your puppy find his way back to you.

Yes it’s mostly a gimmick, but it’s a fun one and a potentially successful one given people’s general enthusiasm towards dogs. You’ll have to pay a good chunk of change to own a Disco Dog, though. The small vest costs a $300 pledge (and is sold out at the moment), while the Medium is $350 and the Large $400.

These Are The Cutest Tissue Holders You’ll See All Day


Etsy seller shopSparklyPony makes some pretty cool tissue holders. They’re in the shape of various animals, from dinos to whales, and the tissue always comes out of some orifice, which can be both cute and funny. Bunny poop tissue, anyone? Anyone? Ok, we know it’s supposed to represent the bunny’s tail, but, you know… No?

Ok… we have the sense of humour of a 5 year old. Sigh.

In any case, you can get one of these tissue holders for $40. They’re hand-made, one by one, out of wood and latex paint, and “each elephant is stamped, dated, signed, and numbered with its order of purchase.”
