Stamp Yo Face, Watch Yourself: Custom Rubber Stamps of Your Face

Stamp Yo Face

You don’t have to be crafty or artsy to appreciate the awesomeness of Stamp Yo Face. The online business offers something that no other company has offered before: custom rubber stamps that bear your image and likeness.

You can use it to “sign” letters, personalize stationary, decorate labels, and basically just stamp stuff to revel in your good looks (and be appropriately embarrassed over your vanity.)

Mogees Turns Anything and Everything Into a Musical Instrument

Mogees1

There’s more to the world than meets the eye–and ears. There’s art in everyday things, from leaves turning into beautiful shades of auburn to the blues, red, and orange that paints the sky with every sunset. You can also make music using the stuff that you see around you, too, although you’ll need a little help from Mogees to actually play it.

Mogees is a small musical instrument that can play anything, from balloons and books to windows and cushions. Conceptualized and created by Bruno Zamborlin, Mogees’ sensor looks like a stethoscope of sorts. It works in conjunction with an app which interprets the signals it receives and transforms it into music.Continue Reading

So This is an iPhone Case Made From Chocolate

iPhone Chocolate Case

 

Phone cases come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. One of the most unusual we’ve seen so far are these iPhone cases made from blocks of dark chocolate. The cases are a result of a love project by Grove, which is a designer of handcrafted wooden tech accessories, and Charley Wheelock of Woodblock Chocolatete.

The edible chocolate cases are compatible with the iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C. Like most cases, they allow access to the phones various ports and buttons. They’re described as being sleek and thin, and even smooth to the touch. They probably won’t stay that way, especially if the phones are being used in the sunny outdoors.

Grove co-founder Ken Tomita explains: “This was a great opportunity for us to team up with another locally owned business and combine our crafts to create something even Wonka would be envious of. They’re not for sale, mainly because we can’t keep making them without gunking up our machines, but don’t worry, all the manufacturing waste is being recycled in our bellies.”

This is a $14,000 Zombie Apocalypse Cabinet

Zombie Apocalypse Cabinet

 

If you believe that the zombie apocalypse is coming, then it’s time to save up for the Wolfram Cabinet aka the Zombie Apocalypse survival cabinet that is filled to brim with everything you need to survive. The steel-walled cabinet measures 43″ (W) x 65″ (H) x 18″ (D) and comes stocked with 170 items that includes tools, cooking utensils, camping supplies, water, food, and emergency supplies, among others.

The price? $14,500, but the retail value of all its contents combined are probably equal or more than that value. The complete list of items included can be found here, in case you’re interested.Continue Reading

Eterni.me Lets Users ‘Chat’ From the Dead, Creep People Out

Eterni.me

 

Eterni.me is one of those services that attempt to defy death in some way by allowing people to maintain an online presence, even when they’ve already passed on. It’s a start-up that came to be thanks to MIT’s Entrepreneurship Development Program, and its creators claim that it’s a piece of technology that can digitally reconstruct your personality after your death, so you can live on and still interact with friends and family online.

The Eterni.me website explains: “Eterni.me collects almost everything that you create during your lifetime, and processes this huge amount of information using complex Artificial Intelligence algorithms. Then it generates a virtual YOU, an avatar that emulates your personality and can interact with, and offer information and advice to, your family and friends after you pass away. It’s like a Skype chat from the past.”

It’s an interesting concept, but to be honest, it’s also extremely creepy. What do you think?

‘Intersections’ And Its Four Walls of Intricate Shadows

Cube Lamp

There’s nothing simple about this cube right here. Dubbed as “Intersections,” it has intricate patterns on each of its six faces that are projected onto the walls of the room that it’s in when the light placed inside its chamber is turned on. Clearly, this is not your regular lamp. It’s actually an art installation by Anila Quayyum Agha which measures six-and-a-half feet on each side.

Anila explains that the project is an exploration of “intersections of culture and religion, the dynamics and interpretation of space and sight as it threaded through cultures and emerged as varied expressions that redefine themselves with the passage of time.”

This Pillow Nudges Your Snoring Spouse, So You Don’t Have To

nudging-pillow

Ever spent hours wide awake staring at the ceiling, at 3 in the morning, wondering how you could have married this earthquake-inducing snore machine? Only to finally nudge them in the hopes that a change in position will calm the noise? Yeah, well with this Snore Activated Nudging Pillow, you don’t have to do a thing. A microphone will pick up the snoring and the internal mechanism will slowly inflate an air bladder, with the hopes that the changing shape will prompt the sleeper to move a bit. The microphone’s sensitivity can be adjusted, as well as how much the bladder inflates.

It’s said to be comfortable, although even if it isn’t the Pillow From Heaven™, your ability to sleep is worth even a little bit of discomfort on the part of your spouse, isn’t it? Right. It’s $150.
