Star Wars Shoes With Lightsaber Heels

heels2

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

pizza-pouch

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

1442015847-0

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

taco_bell_chicken_taco_shell_thumb1

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

russian-werewolf-dog-muzzle-3

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

eggmap-1

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.

People Have Too Much Money: Japanese Tour Bus Seats 10, Costs $1,200+ Per Passenger

Japanese-bus-tours-1

Would you pay $1,200 for a bus tour? Some people in Japan are. As a matter of fact, $1,200 is the cheapest ticket for a special bus tour by Japanese company Isetan Mitsukoshi Travel; the bus only seats 10 people, and carries passengers in luxury similar to that offered in first class flights. More expensive options range up to $2,665. Sure, you get tons of leg room, drinks and meals, toured outings, and even stay at some fancy hotels… but you’re still paying $1,200+ for travel in a road going vehicle. Trips leave Tokyo and take passengers to cities like Nagano and Gunma, though destinations vary by season. By the looks of it the company is doing well, which just goes to show that this world is full of people with too much money.
