NoPhone Is A Piece Of Plastic That Helps You Cut Your Smartphone Addiction

nophone

Your smartphone is always in your front pocket, reassuring you with its hefty weight, giving you a solid block to periodically touch and remind yourself that yes, you’re connected, yes you can be reached, yes you can Instagram any second you’d like… But if that life of an addict is no longer for you, and you’ve decided to ditch your phone for good (bold move, my friend!), the NoPhone might help you transition. It’s just a piece of plastic. But it’s a piece of plastic meant to mimic the look and feel of a phone. You carry it in your pocket as you would a phone, and it gives you the same tactile feedback, minus any functionality whatsoever. It weighs between 2.82 and 3.5 ounces (between 80 and 100 grams), and its measurements are as follows: Height: 5.5 inches (140 mm), Width: 2.6 inches (67 mm), Depth: 0.29 inches (7.3 mm). Standard smartphone dimensions.

A selfie upgrade is available, which consists of a mirror, and can send you your own selfies to yourself in realtime. You can even “add a verbal hashtag by syncing your brain and vocal cords.” It’s brilliant. Best of all, it’s only $12 and should be able to ship in time for Christmas.

‘You Suck At Parking’ Business Cards

you-suck-at-parking-business-cards-640x533

We’ve all seen ‘that guy’ with the Hummer, parking between spots like he owns the place. It’s infuriating, not the least of which because ‘that guy’ is usually not around for you to glare at and at least have a shot at letting him know just how pissed off you are. But if you’d been carrying these cool business cards, it would have taken you all of 5 seconds to send a clear message, just by slipping one under his wipers. You’d then be free to go inside your store and smugly shop, with the comforting knowledge that in a few minutes someone is going to get insulted, and you won’t even have to confront face to face.

It’s $5 for a 10 pack.

New Pills Make Farts Smell Like Chocolate

chocolate-fart-pills

The Holidays are under way, and that means you’ll soon be putting your intestinal tract through some rigorous quality testing. Much gasses will be made, and wouldn’t it be great if these didn’t suffocate your guests? A 65 year old French man, Christian Poincheval, claims to have invented pills that can give your flatulence the sweet smell of chocolate. He sells these on his website at the reasonable rate of $12.50 for 60 capsules, and apparently has been selling similar pills that make your farts smell of roses for years. Whether any of the fart fragrances actually works is not known, but we’d love to hear from anyone that’s tried it.

Creepy But Awesome: Raiders Of The Lost Ark Melting Nazi Face Candle

Raiders Of The Lost Ark Melting Nazi Face Candle

The Melting Toht candle looks like your regular old candle-in-the-shape-of-a-man-with-his-mouth-open candle at first glance. But light it up and you’ll see that it will slowly transform into Gestapo agent Toht from Raiders of the Lost Arc from that unforgettable scene towards the end of the movie.

Even if you haven’t seen the flick, the candle’s still awesome to watch as it burns. Hit the break for a video of that scene we’re talking about (it’s not for the faint-hearted!)

Beware of H2O: Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

 

Water is more dangerous than you think…not. Okay, so it could be, but only if you consume hideously excessive amounts of it in a short span of time. So fool a couple of people of people who don’t really know the facts about H2O by pranking– er, gifting– them with one of these ‘Scientific Side Effects Water’ bottle. A bold warning about what happens if you drink too much water is printed on the side.

It reads: “May cause diaphoresis, micturation, and acute tissue hydration.” In normal human speak, that translates to: “May cause you to sweat, pee, and be adequately hydrated.” Doesn’t sound so dire now, does it?

It’s available online for $18.

Jason Hockey Mask Spoon Evokes Terror With Every Bite

Jason Hockey Mask Spoon1

Jason Voorhees is a name that evokes terror in the hearts of those who believe (and to all those who watched every movie in his horror franchise.) If his name doesn’t, then perhaps his hockey mask will…and now you can have your daily fill of horror with these spoons inspired by the latter.

Use the spoons to stir lattes, to drink soup, and to spread peanut butter and horror all over your toast. The spoons are available on Etsy for $38.

Dunking Buddy Helps You Dunk Your Cookies

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 1.19.01 PM

Living in the first world sure seems to make it possible to think it’s necessary to design things like the Dunking Buddy. It’s a little gadget that helps you dunk your cookies in milk, because apparently holding them in your fingers is either too hard or too annoying. You could, after all, drop one in… and then that would be disastrous. So the Dunking Buddy attaches to the side of your glass with a magnet (with one part inside) and gives you a tiny plastic tray in which to place your sugary flour discs. That way the rampant danger of drowning cookies is mitigated, and everyone can snack stress-free.

It’s still under development, with a patent pending (!) and an undisclosed price. But you can sign up to be notified of when it’ll be launched.

Cat Clutch, Ladies?

cat-clutch-purse-1-595x680

Since we’re on the topic of cats, some of you ladies out there might be interested in this cat clutch. It looks ridiculous. And it’s awesome.

It’s supposed to be a Halloween thing, we think. But we can totally see you rocking this year round. You’ll only have to pay $38 for the privilege, which is really very little for such a fashionable item. Being sold at Asos, with free shipping both ways (if you want to return it, say).
