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.

If you don’t have a watering can and just fill old water bottles up to water your plants, then the Rainmaker is something you need to get. It’s an attachment for plastic bottles that basically transforms it into a watering can of sorts so you can make it rain for your plants with a quick squeeze of the bottle.

The Rainmaker is compatible with most water or soda bottles, although it works best with 1 to 2-liter cola bottles. They’re available online for $11.99.

VGA Connector Stand: So That’s Where It Went!

VGA Connector Phone Stand

 

What’s hot one moment can quickly go obsolete in the next. The VGA connector has been a staple in terms of connectors, but someone could come up with an alternative any moment now to replace it. Before it completely disappears (and goes out of style?), the enterprising folks at Meninos decided to hollow it out and transform it into a stand for your smartphone.

A suction cup is attached on one end to hold your phone in place, while the rubber stand is shaped with a flat bottom so that it can rest steadily on any flat surface. The VGA Phone Stand is available for $8.90.

Lather Up in Imaginary Riches With BitCoin-Inspired BitSoaps

Bitsoaps

 

You can’t hold Bitcoins in your hands but you can lather up a storm with BitSoaps. The two are in no way affiliated with each other; one is an a cryptocurrency you can actually spend, while the other one is a giant coin-shaped soap that comes in three variants.

BitSoaps are made by an enterprising young couple who were “fascinated by [the] concept and versatile utility” of the Bitcoin currency. So they decided to jump on its popularity and come up with soaps inspired by it. On their website, they explain: “Our love for nature and passion for exciting endeavors has drawn us to creating this project. A project that merged environmental mindfulness and digital currency. Marrying these polarized ideas has, therefore, given birth to BitSoaps.”

There are three kinds of BitSoaps to choose from: Bitcoin Hemp Oil Soap Bar, Bitcoin Valentines Lavender Hemp/Castile Soap Bar, and Litecoin Castile Soap Bar. Each coin–er, bar–is priced at $4.42.

Cinnabon Air Freshener

 

The stench of mildew and other household odors don’t mix well with fruity or flowery-scented fresheners. While Air Wick’s Cinnabon-scented air freshener won’t exactly make poop smells yummy, it’s a welcome change from the usual freshener scents available. The scent is described as being “one-of-a-kind cinnamon and cream cheese frosting that make Cinnabon cinnamon rolls so unforgettable.”

Eau de cinnamon ana cream cheese frosting with a spritz or two of this? Yes, please.

Touché, En Garde: Fly Sword Swatter

Fly Sword

Mosquitoes are carriers of various diseases and resulting bites from females are annoyingly itchy. You could go for one of those electric fly swatters that look like smaller versions of badminton racket, where a push of a button is enough to zap the pesky insects to death. But if you’ve ever gotten an electric shock from using one of these things (I have, and boy, does it sting), then you might want to go back to old-school fly swatters– and they don’t come any cooler than the Fly Sword Swatter.

As the name implies, the swatter has a handle that looks like that of a sword. The actual swatter part, in turn, looks like a shield. Touché!

The Fly Sword Swatter is available online for $13.
