CaffeinAll’s Got All the Caffeine You Need

Caffeinall

 

 

Need a dose of caffeine without the bitterness? Most energy drinks have an aftertaste that makes some people nauseous, and if you’re not a fan of coffee, then you’re left with few alternatives. What you need at this point is CaffeinAll. It’s basically powdered caffeine that you can sprinkle all over your food and into soups and drinks so you can get that extra kick while you’re in the middle of a particularly long and tiring day.

CaffeinAll is being marketed as an affordable alternative to typical sources of caffeine. Plus the fact that you can sprinkle it to almost anything means that you can “create” your very own energy food, anytime, anywhere. Each sprinkle contains about 100mg of caffeine, although three shakes is the recommended maximum daily intake so you don’t become an over-caffeinated mess.

CaffeinAll is up for funding on Indiegogo, where a pledge of $15 will get you a bottle that can give you up to 200 shakes.

Need an extra kick in the morning with your pancakes? No need to double up on your espresso, because what you might need is a little bit of whiskey instead of that extra dose of caffeine. Whiskey and pancakes might not sound like a good combination, but whiskey-infused Jim Beam syrup is.

This unusually-flavored pancake syrup incorporates Jim Beam’s signature flavor with the sweetness of syrup that’ll change how you have breakfast and pancakes, for sure. It’s available for $29.99 online.

Suitcase Turns Scooter Turns Suitcase!

Scooter

Dragging suitcases about has always been a hassle for most of us; but now, things are about to take a dramatic turn. He Liangchai, a Chinese entrepreneur, has come up with a unique concept of a suitcase that can be transformed into a scooter. The scooter, which is capable of transporting two people, is a multi-functional commuter that is equipped with features like a GPS navigator, a horn and even a burglar alarm. The handle of the suitcase is the scooter’s handlebar, which, when pulled up, allows drivers to use it as a steering input, brake and throttle. It features a built-in lithium-ion battery that can cover a maximum distance of 37 miles at 12 miles per hour. When it hits the market, the price estimate is between £380 (about $640) and £2,800 (about $4,700), depending on the type of model.

Shower Gel Dispenser that Will Make You Go “Eeew!”

Nose shower gel dispenser1

Creativity seems to have no boundaries or limits when it comes to making new devices that are not just practical but visually appealing as well. One such creatively designed device is the shower gel dispenser that is shaped like a human nose. A gadget that can be hung over a wall, the dispenser will make you go “eeew!” when the time comes for you to get some shower gel. To get your dose of gel, all you have to do is squeeze the nose until it oozes out from the nostrils! The nose shaped dispenser has three suction cups that make it easy to attach to the wall or shower stall door. Besides it can be easily refilled as well – you just need to unscrew the cap at the back of the dispenser and refill the shower gel. Definitely a creative addition to your bathroom, and only $8.

Fart Code App Evaluates Food According to Fart Power

Fart App

Everything you put into your body eventually comes out on the other end. If it’s bad to begin with, then you can expect it to be a wee bit worse by the time it passes through your digestive tract. An app that checks out the nutritional value of food by way of “fart power” is the Fart Code app.

Once it’s all fired up, just use your phone to scan the code on your processed food of choice. The app checks out the food’s individual ingredients and uses an algorithm to determine how toxic a fart would be, based on those ingredients.

Fart Code is available for iOS and you can download it for free here.

Why Invest in Land When You Can Have Your Own UFO Crash Site Soil?

Roswell-Soil-Sample

Well, of course it’s a little bit ‘out there’, but anyone who is a fan of anything and everything extraterrestrial must own something ‘out of this world’, right? So here’s a chance to buy a genuine, honest-to-God piece of the sky. This season, Amazon is going where no man has gone before, and providing buyers with the opportunity to own their own UFO crash site soil! The 1947 report of a UFO crashing in Corona, New Mexico, is apparently not entirely unsubstantiated. The Roswell Army Air Field press release at the time clearly stated that they believed they had found the “remains of a crashed flying disk.” No wonder the reddish soil comes with a certificate of authenticity from the seller, Image SI Inc. And at $12.95 a bag, the price isn’t that astronomical either. Get it on Amazon!

Viteo Shower: Shower From the Ground Up

Viteo-Shower

 

Step out into your garden and into the Viteo Shower to stay cool, even under the summer sun. It’s too nice outdoors to stay cooped up in your room. And because it can get too hot for comfort, it makes sense to have something like this out on your lawn so you can cool down when you need to.

You can switch the sprinklers on and step into their inconsistent spray–or hook the Viteo Shower up to a hose and step onto it to get rained on from the ground up. Your body weight sets of the Viteo’s shower jets, so water gushes up from below and over your head before falling once more like drops of rain.

The Viteo Shower is available online for €750 (about $850.)

Napkin Table Is The Best Idea For A First Date Yet

napkin-table-1

Created by industrial design students in Tunghai University of Taiwan, the Napkin Table lets two hungry people get their grub on even when they don’t have an actual table around. It wraps around each of their necks, tying them together and forcing them to balance their food between each other. It’s a bit weird, a bit awkward, and 100% the best way to make an awesome impression on a first date. It’ll force you to have a conversation, and you’re sure to have a couple of laughs… if neither of you is too stuck up, that is. After you’re done eating, you can just fold it up and take it with you. Or at least, you could if this was an actual product you can buy. Sadly, it’s just a student project with no real plans at commercialization. That said, once the idea is out in the wild, who knows when an enterprising Kickstarter will pop up?
