Functional Fashion: Flask Bracelet

Flask Bracelet

 

 

It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. If you can’t be bothered to tote a water bottle in your bag at all times, then what about wearing one around your wrist? The Flask Bracelet was designed with women in mind, but brave dudes can sport one if they don’t mind the inevitable teasing that’ll come from colleagues who’ll wonder why in the world they’re sporting this huge bangle on their wrists.

Designed by Cynthia Rowley, the Flask Bracelet is exactly what it’s name says it is: it’s a bracelet that doubles as a flask and vice versa. It can hold up to 3oz of your beverage of choice, be it water, juice, or beer. Granted, it’ll probably give you sore wrists at the end of the day if you fill it up to full capacity. Is the added convenience worth the pain? You decide.

The Flask Bracelet is available online for $225.

Must Try: Kono Serves Up Pizza in a Cone

Pizza Cone

Pizza comes in many shapes, sizes, and flavors. Now you can enjoy your favorite snack-slash-meal fuss-free and minus the mess that comes when you use your hands with these cone pizzas thanks to Kono Pizza. The chain operates in 130 locations worldwide and offers pizza cones filled with typical pizza toppings like cheese, bacon, ham, and sausages, to not-so-typical fillings like Tiramisu with cream, biscuit, and coffee syrup.

Kono also claims that their pizza cones are healthier than your average slices, thanks to their thin crust, reduced grease, and “low-moisture cheese.” The first two we get, but we’re not so sure about the last one. Regardless, these pizza cones are worth trying, especially if you’ve got a Kono near you.

Bake, Eat, Repeat: Bakeable Kit Kats

Baked Kit Kat

 

Have a break, have a Kit Kat! But if your break is longer than the average, then why settle for a regular Kit Kat when you can have a baked one? This latest offering is only available at Japan’s Kit Kat Chocolaterie and is dubbed as “Delicious When Baked Pudding Flavored Kit Kats.” They’re essentially mini-sized, pudding-flavored Kit Kats that you’re supposed to pop into the oven before eating.

When heated in a toaster, the sugar content in the chocolate hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.

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.”

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?
