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.

iRecorder iPhone Speaker: Play New Beats With a Vintage Vibe

iRecorder

 

Remember those vintage recorders that you used to carry around way back when they were the hottest gadgets around? Digital music players and smartphones have rendered them obsolete, but they’re about to make a comeback in a roundabout sort of way.

The iRecorder Speaker is a handy speaker that’s compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5. It sports that vintage recorder look on the outside, but it won’t be able to play your old cassette tapes. However, it will be able to play the tunes on your phone. Just pop your mobile into the cassette slot and push down the orange play button.

The iRecorder comes with a pull-out carry handle and a USB charging cord. It can be powered by a micro USB or batteries, just like your old recorder. It’s available online for $50.

‘Everyday Racism’ App Shows You What It’s Like to Be In Someone Else’s Shoes

Everyday Racism App

 

In this day and age, you’d think that racism would no longer be an issue. Unfortunately, it still is. While it isn’t as widespread as before, racism is something a number of people have to deal with on a daily basis. Whether it’s microaggressions or a bit of unfair treatment here and there, it’s still racism all the same.

Shedding some light on the discrimination of racial minority is the Everyday Racism app by All Together Now, who worked with the University of Western Sydney, Deakin University, and Melbourne University on its development. It plays out like a game of sorts, where the user chooses to play as one of three characters, all of whom are based on actual people and their real-life experiences. Four scenarios will play out over the course of one week, where you will be subjected to discriminatory treatment that real people have faced while going about their day.

You can also choose to play as yourself, where you will be able to see how discrimination plays out in society and how it affects others from a third-person perspective.

Everyday Racism can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

Maple Bacon Coffee Beer? Really? That Settles It: There Is A God!

maple-bacon-coffee-porter-xl

Like hitting a royal flush, this Porter beer by Funky Buddha Brewery straight up mashed all our happy buttons at once. Maple syrup, bacon, and coffee flavours in a beer? Good Lord, we’re so excited we’d rather let them describe it:

Evoking a complete diner-style breakfast in a glass, Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is a complex beer with a multitude of flavors at play. It pours an opaque ebony brew with a frothy tan head. Aromas of sticky maple syrup, coffee, and cream creep forth from the glass. The mouth feel is luxuriously creamy, with layers of sweet malt, toffee, and roast giving way to waves of smoke, coffee, and salted chocolate. It finishes sticky, rich, and sweet, with the flavor of maple syrup lingering pleasantly on the tongue.

It’s a special release brew with 6.4% alcohol content. We’re not sure where it’s available, but the company’s website is solid and should be able to point you in the right direction.

Incidentally, you should check these guys out altogether. They have a bunch of other funky flavours, like Raspberry Habanero and Reece Peanut Butter Cup.

Pure-Bottle is a Glass, Lantern, and Spoon Set In One

Pure Bottle

Sometimes, things are not what they appear to be. For example, the Pure-Bottle might look like a mere bottle at first glance. Its name even suggests that it’s just a bottle, but you’ll notice that a couple of things are off if you take a closer look.

First of all, there are cuts where there shouldn’t be and lines that you normally wouldn’t find on regular bottles. That’s because the Pure-Bottle technically isn’t a bottle anymore. With a few choice cuts and after sanding the separated parts, it is now a spoon, a lantern, and a drinking glass.

World’s First Pure Milk Vodka Sounds Intriguing

black-cow-milk-vodka

We absolutely judge people based on the drink they hold in their hands; let’s face it, everyone does. But we’re entirely at a loss on what to think of someone holding a drink made from milk. Black Cow Pure Milk Vodka forgoes the grains that typically serve as a vodka base, and instead uses the whey that remains after cheese curds have been separated from the milk. The whey is fermented into a beer, which is then distilled into the vodka you see above. There’s some filtering and blending going on as well, in a proprietary process, but the result is said to give “a sweet creamy taste with subtle hints of vanilla and cinnamon.” The libation is manufactured in the West Dorset countryside, in England, by one Jason Barber and his 250 grass-fed cows. A 24oz. bottle will set you back £29, or roughly $47.
