The Strong Enter Key Will Take Your Abuse, So Your Laptop Doesn’t Have To


Think about it: where do you most often take out your petty online frustrations, if not on the Enter key? That troll pissing you off? You’ll punctuate your message with a heavy blow on the key. That browser not loading your website fast enough? You’ll mash the key a few times. Right? They’re built to last, sure, but sooner or later they’ll give up the ghost. So, to save your keyboard, you can purchase the Strong Enter Key. It’s made to do just one thing: serve as an alternate return carriage key. It’s large, presumably made from strong materials, and costs 2,500 Yen (approx. $21 USD).

HUMMbucker Electric Kazoo Will Make You The Best Neighbour


The sound of a kazoo already ranks up there amongst one of the most annoying things that can fall on your eardrums. But what kazoos have always lacked is the ability to project their melodious wail much further than a few feet. With the HUMMbucker Electric Kazoo though, you’ll have the power of electricity at your side. Just plug your kazoo (hard not to laugh just writing those words) into your amp, crank the volume up to 11, and prepare for the onslaught of angry taps, kicks and punches to your walls and ceiling from your now incensed neighbours. Or, you know, don’t be a prick and just use this as it’s intended: in a melodically dubious hipster concert.

It’s $17 and comes with a 15′ cable and a 1/4″ jack.

Burger King Japan To Release Whopper Fragrance


Considering Burger King Japan will be “releasing” this on April 1st, I’m not 100% sure this information is legit and isn’t a simple Fool’s Day prank. But just in case it’s not, we’d like to inform you that for 1 day only, the burger maker will apparently be selling a little bottle of Whopper Fragrance for 5,000 yen or about $42, and it comes with a Whopper to boot. We don’t know what it actually smells like, but we sure hope it’s exactly what it sounds like. Additionally, you’ll apparently be able to purchase a Whopper Pass for $41, which gives you 30 days of Whopper meals. Considering it’s usually around $7 each, this pass is a heck of a bargain. And yes, it’s one day only. And… only if any of this is actually true.

KFC UK To Offer Coffee In An Edible Cup


It seems KFC will be offering Seattle’s Best Coffee branded brew in a special drinking vessel soon: edible cups. That’s right, after you’re done sipping on your cup o’ Joe, you can just eat the container it came in. KFC did this by partnering up with

food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

We don’t know for how long the cups are able to keep the liquid in without leaking, but for those of you who like to sip on cold coffee throughout the day (like me), this might be a risky proposition.

The cups are being introduced to mark the launch of KFC’s Seattle’s Best Coffee across its UK branches. They aren’t ready yet, so don’t go running to your local branch just yet; the hope is that they will be by summer.

Chill to Warm Up: Icycls are Fruit-Flavored Ice Pops Made With Vodka


If you can’t handle regular shots or just feel like trying out something new, then you might want to stock up on these Icycls. They bring something new and different to liquor that makes it easier for you to get your liquor fix. They’re basically fruit-flavored ice pops made with vodka for that extra kick.

They contain 6.4% ABV, so you should definitely hide them away in your freezer where kids can’t find them.

Invisible Boyfriend (And Girlfriend) Is A Service That Lets You Fake Being In A Relationship


Oh let’s face it, it’s never easy to admit you’ve been on the shelf, gathering dust, for the last couple of years. Maybe you liked the idea of curling up with your four cats on a Friday night while watching Frazier reruns at one point, but that’s gotten old fast. And while you may have a bit of trouble actually doing something about it, Invisible Girlfriend and Invisible Boyfriend hopes to make it easier for you to at least give the appearance of being shacked up. The service will provide you with all the evidence you need to successfully fake having an SO, by providing you everything from pictures, to a credible backstory, to an automated SMS companion and possibly at one point a social media profile you can “be in a relationship with” (provided of course this doesn’t violate any TOS, which seems unlikely). But yes, you read that right, you can text your fake boy(girl)friend, and they’ll answer right back!

Right now the company is in a private beta, and you’ll have to apply to join. Once in (and don’t ask us how tight the admission is, because we don’t know), you’ll be all set to create your virtual boyfriend/girlfriend.

Anti-Paparazzi Collection Makes You Unphotographable

Anti-Paparazzi Collection

You might not be as popular or sought after by paparazzi, but you’ll find the Anti-Paparazzi amusing, if not relevant, if you value your privacy. The collection currently includes a blazer, scarf, and hooded jacket, but creator Chris Holmes might add more types of clothing depending on the need or demand for it.

Basically, the clothing line uses reflective thread so it reflects light back from cameras, effectively ruining the photo in the process. Whether it’s a digital camera or a phone camera, these threads have got you covered.

Pong Traffic Light Lets You Play With Folks On the Other Side

Pong Traffic Light


Pong. What’s not to like? It’s a fun, simple game that makes you forget your problems…until the next stoplight, that is. This would be the case if you were playing Pong on these newly-installed systems that are attached to the base of traffic lights in Germany. When the lights are green, pedestrians can play a round of Pong with folks who are on the other side of the road while they wait.

Hit the break for a video of the awesome street Pong system!

The Whisker Dam Protects Your ‘Stache From Dipping Into Your Suds


It’s the little inventions that get us excited. Tiny doodads that can make a world of difference in some settings. Take the Whisker Dam for instance. It’s a metal object whose only purpose is to keep your moustache dry while you drink beer. This is a problem any self-respecting moustachioed man will know about: suds-infused hairs following a good sip of a properly poured beer. Well, the Whisker Dam attaches to almost any drinking vessel and creates a smaller opening through which your beer can flow, but which keeps your face adornments nice and dry.

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

Granted, you may also miss out on the head itself, which beer aficionados will tsk-tsk you for, but if all you want is to get some liquid cereal down your gullet without making a mess of your facial hair, we totally dig the $20 purchase.
