Build It, Code It: Kano DIY Computer Kit

Kano DIY Computer Kit

 

Some people like to play games. Others like to build stuff and learn to code as they go along.

If that’s how people describe you, then you would probably enjoy having a go at the Kano. It’s a DIY computer kit where you can build your own computer. It’s meant for people young and old who are passionate about learning what makes computers tick. Each kit contains all the necessary parts needed to make a working computer–but the fun doesn’t when it’s all assembled. In fact, that’s when the fun begins, because the computer can be booted up to write basic programs, hack stuff, and even program games.

The Kano DIY computer kit costs $100.

Custom Printed City Sights Photo Pillows

City Pillows

Lay-N-Go Traveler Makes Packing and Unpacking Easier

Lay N Go

Whether it’s a day trip, a weekender, or a week-long trip, the Lay-N-Go Traveler will be able to make packing and unpacking a whole lot easier for you. It’s a bag can be unfolded and transformed into a mat, effectively laying all your stuff in front of you. That way, you won’t have to rummage through your bag (and mess everything up in the process) in search for a single object.

The Lay-N-Go Traveler isn’t meant to hold your clothes or extra shoes, given the size, but it’s perfect for personal effects and smaller essentials, like your toothpaste, glasses, razor, deodorant, and phone charger and cables, among other things. It’s also available in another size, the Lay-N-Go Lifestyle, which is a larger version that you can use to carry more stuff like food for a picnic or toys for kids to play with at the beach.

The Lay-N-Go Traveler is priced at $29.95, while the Lifestyle costs $49.95.

Two Stroke Smoke Candle: Fill Your Home With the Scent of Motorbikes

Two Stroke Smoke Candle

Close your eyes and take a whiff of the scent that emanates from the Two Stroke Smoke candle. Memories of hours spent riding a motorbike out in the country or weaving a snowmobile on the slopes will eventually come to mind. The smell of Blendzall Racing Castor 2 stroke oil isn’t the most pleasant scent in the world (frankly, it stinks) but the memories it conjures up are just all too precious.

If you feel nostalgic and are missing the good old days, then light one of these up and immerse yourself in the distinct high-octane fragrance of these candles.

Super awesome custom blended candle by Maplewood’s very own Maven. It’s made with real live Blendzall Racing Castor 2 stroke oil with high-octane fragrance.

The Two Stroke Smoke candle is available for $20.

They’re actually sold in sets of 32 decals, where 23 of these are based on characters from Star Trek: The Original Series. Mix and match and throw in some random Tribbles when you feel like it (there are actually five of those included in every set). Each set is priced at $14.99.

Power Ranger Onesies for Your Little Power Ranger

Power Ranger Onesies Remember the good old days when you’d sing to theme of Power Rangers as the live action program began on television? The show has evolved over the years (it went back on air last February with Power Rangers Megaforce.) It’s got a lot more competition on the small screen but if you grew up with the crew, then there’ll always be that spot that nothing else can replace.

Start your child on the path of righteousness early by dressing them up in these adorable Power Rangers onesies! They might not grow up to love the show as much as you did, but you can always teach them a thing or two about what the Rangers stand for while they’re in their Ranger garb.

Available in blue, green, black, yellow, red, and pink. Where’s the onesie for the White Ranger?

Check Out This Fancy $500 Ready-to-Eat Dinner

Expensive TV Dinner

TV dinners often look crappier in real life than what’s being advertised on the box. If you think about it, you shouldn’t really expect a completely satisfying and wholesome meal out of the box, since it did come frozen and is ready-to-eat after nuking it for a couple of minutes.

Redefining ready-made dinners  is Chef Charlie Bigham and his extremely fancy dinner creation that will please even the pickiest of people. It’s being dubbed as the fanciest, most luxurious TV dinner that money can buy. For starters, there’s the amuse-bouche of Beluga caviar. The main course of lobster, wild turbot, fresh diver-caught scallops, smoked salmon and oysters that are poached in Dom Perignon champagne sauce follows. If that’s not enough, there’s also fresh white Alba truffle with creamy mashed Yukon Gold heritage potatoes on the side and a 24-carat gold leaf crumb to complete the meal.

The entire dinner costs £314.16 (about $500) and was available starting last December 4th.
