Cat Ear Headphones Are A Thing Now

cat-ear-headphones-2

We have a sneaking suspicion that Axent Wear’s new Cat Ear Heaphones will find a strong market mostly in Japan. But they’re sure as heck intriguing enough to get us talking about them on this side of the pond. Although really, there’s not much to say about them. The cat ears are actually speakers that can blast your music outwards. There are LEDs throughout to accent the design, and thankfully both the cat ears and LEDs can be turned off if you don’t feel like being obnoxious at any given time. And that’s it. It’s a $150 pledge on Indiegogo, which includes shipping, taxes and import duties worldwide.

Scorpion Chair Is Very Scorpion-y

scorpion-chair-1

Thats a sick looking chair if we’ve ever seen one. Made by painter, sculptor, and woodcarver Vyacheslav Pakhomov. If the translation on his website is correct, it does seem to be available for purchase for the relatively modest sum of 230000 Russian Rubles, which translates to about $5,730 USD. Considering the amount of work that must’ve gone into something like this, evil hell Lords in the making should immediately go check if they have the available funds before it’s sold.

Ostrich Pillow Mini Softens Up Your Arms For More Efficient Napping

ostrich-pillow-mini

We’ve written about the Ostrich Pillows twice before, and each time the offbeat sleeping aids were a hit. But that was mostly because of how odd they looked. The Ostrich Pillow Mini also looks a little strange, making you look a bit like MegaMan or Popeye, but it is at least more practical than its predecessors. You simply slip your arm within and plop your head right down, presumably giving your nogging a more comfortable place to rest. There are holes for your hand and thumb, but the thing can be slid up and down your arm at your preference. It’s made from 95 percent viscose and 5 percent elastomero, which is presumably comfy as hell.

It’s currently undergoing the Kickstarter dance, and a $25 pledge will get you one. Hit the jump for another picture and links.

The Stuff of Nightmares: Web Spider Fangs Pillow

Spider Fangs Pillow

This pillow won’t help you sleep at all. In fact, it might even cause you to wake up screaming and sweating in the middle of the night. The throw pillow features a close-up image of Sydney funnel-web spider, which was taken by Alex Wild. The amount of detail he was able to capture is astounding. Even the fangs look like they’re popping out of the pillow.

If you feel at home with spiders–or, well, with larger-than-life images of spiders on a throw pillow–then you can get one here. The pillows are available in a variety of sizes, with prices starting at $28.95.

Use ‘Somebody’ to Send Messages to Friends Via Strangers

Somebody App

If you think about it, social media takes away from actual socialization because of the lack of in-person interactions. Aiming to inject a little bit of that back into social-centric apps is Somebody. The app literally lets you use somebody (while using Somebody–get it?) to send a personal message to your intended recipient, wherever they may be.

Here’s how it works: the user composes his message and includes any special instructions to the messenger, such as extra notes on how to deliver the message or any accompanying actions. He then chooses another user of the app in the vicinity of the recipient to deliver the message.

Eyeball Bowling Ball: All Eyes on the Pins

Eyeball Bowling Ball

 

So you probably shouldn’t get this particular bowling ball if you don’t want all eyes in the bowling alley on you. The Eyeball bowling ball is unusual, even grotesque, and it’ll make some people lose their lunch, what with the veins and red stuff behind the cornea and all. But if you’re the king of pins and don’t mind the attention that using this ball will get you, then by all means, get it and give it your best shot.

The Eyeball bowling ball is available online for $140.

Telephoto MegaFon Loudspeaker Lets You “Yell” at One Person Only

Telephoto MegaFon

So near, yet so far. You might be able to see the person you want to talk to, but the din of the outside world won’t allow him to hear your voice. That and the fact that what you want to keep your message private makes yelling out of the question. Addressing this first world problem is Fuji Xerox.

After a lot of detailed R&D, they’ve created the Telephoto Megafon which is basically a targeted megaphone of sorts. The 3D-printed gadget will let the user “speak” to someone far away by simply pointing the Megafon towards that person.

A Different Kinda Dinosaur: Tricera Hi-Tops

Tricera Hi-Tops

You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate the awesomeness of the Tricera Hi-Tops. Aside from the uber-clever name, it’s a fun take on the typical hi-tops that you see in stores these days. The shoe features the head of a triceratops in all it’s three-horned splendor. Remember Cera from the Land Before Time? Yeah, she was a triceratops.

The shoes feature a Velcro closure, so they’re perfect for lazy folks who just want to slip their feet into their sneakers and go about their day without having to ever tie their laces.
