The Lean, Mean Weaponized Mecha Machine Smartphone Holder

Mecha Smartphone Holder

Transform your smartphone into the ultimate fighting machine–well, sort of–with the Mecha Machine Smartphone Holder. As the name implies, it’s a contraption that’s designed to hold your phone in the most menacing way possible. The holder might look like it was put together using random screws, hinges, and other spare gear that you can find in a typical tool shed, but we’re willing to bet that making it called for a bit of skill and loads of creativity.

A variety of other holders are available on MechWorld‘s Etsy shop. He’s also got some pretty nifty-looking robot toys and Transformers figures on display.

They Don’t Stand a Chance: Pow! Splat! Fly Swatters

Pow Splat Fly Swatter

 

You can go for one of those electric fly swatters to zap those pesky flies and mosquitoes out of your face and into kingdom come–or you can go for these comic-inspired Pow! and Splat! fly swatters. Granted, it’s easier to get that insect, specially the fast flyers, with the tennis racket-shaped electric swatters. But if you’re out of juice and really need to get that thing out of the air, then this will have to do.

The expressions featured on the bubbles are pretty apt for their purpose too: Pow! to hit that bug in order to make it go Splat! Yowza!

The fly swatters are available online for $10.

Endless Calendar Goes On and On and On

Endless Calendar

Endless Calendar1

 

The Endless Calendar is a modular calendar of sorts that you can put on display and use and re-use for the months, years, and decades to come. It’s relatively simple, but it gets the job done. Each of the calendar’s components are printed by hand using wood types, which are then positioned and stored in a display unit that sort of looks like a napkin holder.

It won’t alert you to any meetings or special events, but it’ll let you know the date and what day of the week it is, and that should be more than enough for most people. The best part? No need to replace your calendar on a yearly basis anymore, obviously.

The Endless Calendar is available for $42.

Functional Fashion: Flask Bracelet

Flask Bracelet

 

 

It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. If you can’t be bothered to tote a water bottle in your bag at all times, then what about wearing one around your wrist? The Flask Bracelet was designed with women in mind, but brave dudes can sport one if they don’t mind the inevitable teasing that’ll come from colleagues who’ll wonder why in the world they’re sporting this huge bangle on their wrists.

Designed by Cynthia Rowley, the Flask Bracelet is exactly what it’s name says it is: it’s a bracelet that doubles as a flask and vice versa. It can hold up to 3oz of your beverage of choice, be it water, juice, or beer. Granted, it’ll probably give you sore wrists at the end of the day if you fill it up to full capacity. Is the added convenience worth the pain? You decide.

The Flask Bracelet is available online for $225.

Every Weight Watcher’s Dream: Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top

Caffeine Slimming Top

 

Breaking up is hard to do, but losing weight is even harder. At least, it is, for the people who have tried but constantly failed. It’s probably this group of people that the makers of this Caffeine-Infused Slimming Tank Top are targeting. As the name implies, this top apparently has slimming properties as it’s infused with green coffee and brown algae that’ll work on stimulating your body’s metabolism. That’s because the micronized caffeine stimulates lipolysis, which is the natural breakdown of stored fats, while the brown algae moisturizes the skin.

It also cheats because the top comes in black, and we all know black gives the illusion of a slimmer figure. The manufacturer claims that the top can help trim its wearer’s hips by up to 1 inch and thighs by up to 11/4 of an inch if it’s worth for eight hours a day for 21 straight days. Sounds too good to be true, I’ll give it that, but who knows? It could actually work.

The Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top retails for $85.

DreamPad Plays Tunes Only You Can Hear

DreamPad

 

Nothing beats listening to some soothing music before heading off to dreamland. But what’s music to my ears might not be for my roommate, who thinks the Rolling Stones sing the perfect lullaby. Two speakers in one room? Not a good idea. But what’s a good idea is the DreamPad, which is a pillow that plays songs that only you can hear.

The DreamPad works by using conductive technology to send the tunes straight to your ears, so that even someone sleeping next to you won’t be able to hear them. It also makes bedtime jamming more comfortable, because if you’ve ever slept with headphones on, then you know what a pain that could be.

The DreamPad comes with five music programs that you can choose from upon purchasing. You can download the tunes to your smartphone or opt to include a Sony Walkman MP3 player in case you don’t have a music player yet. It’s available online for $179.

Want This: Transforming Hulk Toy is Smashing!

Hulk Smash Transformation Toy

Now this is one toy that stays in keeping with the personality of the character that it features. It’s the Transforming Hulk toy which, as its name suggests, has the hulk transforming into his ginormous green form and smashing through the walls of the city. All you need to do is add water (because it’s water that makes him hulk out, not adrenaline–at least, for this particular toy) and wait for five days for his “transformation” to be complete.

This type of “add-water-and-watch-it-grow” toy isn’t new, but it’s awesome nonetheless. When you’re hulk is all hulked up, just remove him from the tank so he’ll return to his original form. When you want him to hulk up again, well, you know what to do.

Transforming Hulk is available from ThinkGeek for $13.99.
