Critter Fingers? Totally

animal-rings-1-595x446

We suppose these are just one step removed from Crazy Cat Lady status, and that just may be enough to motivate some of you to get them. These handmade animal rings are made by Japanese artist Jiro Miura and come in almost endless varieties. They’re made to order, which could mean that it’ll take a while to get your order, but the website is in Japanese and Google Translate isn’t cooperating. So explore, poke around, and discover if you’ll be able to place an order for a set of Animal Rings.

0000302_sunrise-pinnacle

So… it turns out that what was sorely lacking from your Apple Watch was… yet another watch. That’s right, you’re looking at the Nico Gerard Sunrise Pinnacle Watch, which uses the Apple’s overhyped timepiece as an accessory. In other words, it’s a $9,000 watch with a special band that attaches to your Apple Watch. Yes, yes, you’re reading this right: on the upper part of your wrist, you are to see the Sunrise Pinnacle watch face, and on the underside of your wrist, you will have access to the Apple Watch. Because having two wristwatches is totally normal. Oh, and if you thought spending $9,000 wasn’t enough, there’s an upgraded 18-carat gold version called the Sunrise Pinnacle Reservation that costs $112,000. Luckily, that Gold Apple Watch is included.

People Have Too Much Money: Japanese Tour Bus Seats 10, Costs $1,200+ Per Passenger

Japanese-bus-tours-1

Would you pay $1,200 for a bus tour? Some people in Japan are. As a matter of fact, $1,200 is the cheapest ticket for a special bus tour by Japanese company Isetan Mitsukoshi Travel; the bus only seats 10 people, and carries passengers in luxury similar to that offered in first class flights. More expensive options range up to $2,665. Sure, you get tons of leg room, drinks and meals, toured outings, and even stay at some fancy hotels… but you’re still paying $1,200+ for travel in a road going vehicle. Trips leave Tokyo and take passengers to cities like Nagano and Gunma, though destinations vary by season. By the looks of it the company is doing well, which just goes to show that this world is full of people with too much money.

This Spiral Staircase Attaches To A Tree

spiral-staircase-people

There are many ways to climb a tree, but very few of them involve comfort or ease. Whether it’s mocking around on a bare trunk, or even using a ladder of any type, you’ll find yourself exerting yourself, potentially above your personal comfort levels. But there’s very little to find difficult about climbing a tree outfitted with the CanopyStair. It’s a set of stairs that attach to a tree trunk via ratchet straps. Install each step one by one, in a spiral pattern, and in less than half an hour you’ll have an easy and simple way to make yourself to the canopy. What you do once you’re there is another matter altogether, but at least the climbing part will be simple. There’s no word on price or availability, but it does seem to be a real product that will be available at some point in the not too distant future.

Time To Chill: Rough Day Wine Glass

Rough Day Wine Glass

There’s nothing like unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. But how much wine is just right or just enough for whatever stress you’re trying to relieve? Although not accurate for everyone, the ‘Rough Day Wine Glass’ provides a good-enough estimate. Have half a glass for a day that was just like any other, pour more into your glass if you had a particularly rough day, or fill it up to the brim if you just want to forget it all.

The quirky wine glass is sold in pairs and is available online for $24.

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

undewear-for-bottled-water-1-595x335

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

batman-office-chair-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.

The Xtensor Hand Exerciser Is The Reverse Of One Of Those Hand Grip Strengthener… Things

The-Xtensor-a-Handy-Reverse-Grip-Hand-Exerciser

There’s all kinds of ways to isolate and work out just the muscle groups you want. Over the years, we’ve seen them all, but it’s the first time we realize a neglected exercise: the hand extensors. You’re likely familiar with those Hand Grip Strengtheners, which rely on you squeezing to develop the muscles of the forearms. But the opposite of squeezing, extending your fingers, seems to go largely ignored. That’s what the Xtensor Hand Exerciser is all about. Insert fingertips in rubber rings, and gain some strength with the resistance provided. We can’t really tell you why you would want to develop that particular set of muscles, aside from maybe being better at flinging stuff off your finger tips. Or maybe relieving ostheo-arthritis symptoms, as the makers suggest. It’s $30.
