Wrap-a-Nap Travel Pillow Lets You Sleep Anywhere


There’s all kinds of travel pillows out there, some of them with pretty high-tech features. We’re rather fond of this particular contender however, the Wrap-a-Nap Travel Pillow, because not only does it let you rest your head against any hard surface (an airplane window, for instance), it also wraps around your eyes, blocking the sight of other disgruntled travellers in one fell swoop. Even better, it blocks sounds too! In one cool pillow, you get to rest your head, shut your eyes, and close your ears so your undignified ride can pass by an uneventfully as possible. And it’s only $20.

A Cat Suit With A Pouch For A Cat Is The Catsuit You’ve Always Wanted


Aw man, we’re surprised the Internet didn’t break when news of this Cat Suit came out. It’s a lot like the Mewgaroo Hoodie we wrote about in May, it even bears the same name, only it’s a jumpsuit with cat ears and cat tail, or a Catsuit if you will. And like it’s hoodie cousin, it has a special pouch with a top opening in which you can stuff your cat, to complete the image. Oh, and a trap door so you can do your business while still carrying your kitty, which will undoubtedly make him happy and not freak out at all. Crazy cat ladies everywhere will jump at the opportunity to make a trip to the local Walmart donning this most awesome cat-loving and sanity-defying costume. It’s 8,000 Yen, or about $65.

Girl Makes $700 Cat Bags


No, these are not taxidermied. They’re hand-crafted bags made by Japanese artist Pico. She makes them one at a time, probably takes forever, and so feels entitled to charge $700 for them. If I were to spend ungodly hours making cat bags, I probably would add a zero to that figure, but that’s just me. They’re actually up for sale on a Japanese Yahoo Auction website, so maybe $700 is what one of them sold for while other may fetch different prices (after reading another article on the topic, that’s exactly what it is. Still… $700?!). I’m not sure since everything is in Japanese and I can’t find proper information. So instead of being an informative post, just revel in pictures of super cute kitty purses and if you’re feeling adventurous, try to navigate the links to figure out how to get your own.

Star Wars Shoes With Lightsaber Heels


Another day, another semi-ridiculous piece of Star Wars merchandise. This time we’re looking at shoes from UK retailer Irregular Choice. They’ve created a collection of themed shoes, some of which include lightsaber heels and… curtain tie laces? They’ll definitely stand out and loudly proclaim your love for the franchise. The company will also be selling C-3PO flats and R2-D2 themed heels. The collection comes out on October 30th, but there’s no word on price.

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck


Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.

This Needs To Be Made: Finger Cookies


Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: these don’t actually exist. Or at the very least, they can’t be bought right now. The Finger Cookies are a design by Paolo Ulian, and they allow you to do pretty much what the picture already tells you. You put the thimble-shaped cookies over your fingers and dip them in any delicious liquid you want. Rinse and repeat. It’s a genius idea, and one that really shouldn’t be too hard to bring to market. Now… let’s get someone on this case, shall we?

Taco Bell Testing Taco Shell Made From Crispy Chicken


Don’t go looking for it at your local Taco Bell just yet, unless you live in Bakersfield and Lost Hills, California. That’s where a Reddit user spotted the above. It’s called Naked Crispy Chicken Taco, and it’s a taco with a shell made of crispy white meat chicken. The other ingredients include lettuce, cheese, tomato and avocado ranch sauce, so… no extra meat. But who cares? It’s $2.99 for one, to $4.99 in a combo. We don’t know whether the chain will expand the offering statewide, but we sure hope so. We suspect that some people in Colorado might be down.

Werewolf Dog Muzzle Will Scare Old Ladies, Make You New Friends


This is a dog muzzle shaped like a giant set of rabid teeth. It’s badass. With this muzzle on, your dog is sure to turn heads, for reasons good and bad alike. The old, frail, and nervous will not take the time to realize it’s a muzzle, and will run away screaming, likely calling authorities of some kind in the process. Most of the rest will probably look at the owner (that’s you) with a mix of apprehension and curiosity. And some will walk up to you and want to shake your hand because, well, damn if that’s not the creepiest looking canine they’ve ever come across. The best part is that it apparently is up for purchase, at $30 on some Russian website. Whether they ship stateside is anyone’s guess at the moment. Any Russian speakers want to clear that up for us?

EggMap Lets You Zoom In By Squeezing


The iPhone brought us “Pinch-to-zoom”, but the EggMap is hoping to get us acquainted with “Squeeze-to-zoom” instead. It’s a conceptual creation by Denes Sator, a product/industrial/graphic designer based out of Budapest, Hungary. And it consists of a flexible air-filled ball with a detailed map printed on it. In its normal state, you will have trouble distinguishing details, but if you squeeze it, a portion will be enlarged and the details will then become visible. It’s a cool concept, plus it can double as a stress ball, which your fancy iPhone certainly will have trouble doing. Sadly, you can’t actually get your hands on it yet, but it looks like Denes is making some efforts to bring it to market. You can sign up on his Facebook page to get updates on the EggMap.
