For Lethal Couplings: Gas Mask Diamond Ring

Gas Mask Diamond Ring Rings are a symbol of love and commitment. They’re indicators of your fashion sense, sentiments, and even your political views. Where the Gas Mask diamond ring falls under, I’m not sure. Probably all of the above, although I’m unsure on the love and commitment part for obvious reasons.

The ring is adorned with gorgeous black and white diamonds, which are set on 18-carat gold with a black finish. Wear it in protest, wear it to showcase your sense of style (and deep pockets), or simply wear it because it’s fun.

The price? $7,000.

Now This is Putting a Ring On It: Giant Cathedral Ring

Giant Cathedral Ring

Take a cue from Beyonce and put a ring on it! It doesn’t have to be a ring with a huge rock or something that’s over-the-top fancy, because what’s more important is what the ring symbolizes. However, if you can afford it and know your fiance would want something that’s larger than life, then maybe this giant Cathedral ring will do.

Its maker, MetalCoutureJewelry, didn’t hold anything back when they design the humongous ring. Something they probably didn’t consider though: the wearer poking herself in the eye when she reaches up to fix her glasses or hair or something.

Thumb Extender Stylus To Help You Use Giant Phones With One Hand

fngext64-003

It’s an undeniable trend: smartphone screen sizes are getting bigger. And while bigger is better, those of us with shorter thumbs may beg to differ, as one-handed use of these larger devices becomes almost impossible. Thanko, Japanese retailers of many oddball gadgets, are selling these thumb-extending styli that look stupid, but do allow you to reach the upper corners of your screen that were previously too far. We’re not sure why it needs to be shaped like a thumb, but as long as it gets the job done we suppose some people might not mind the indignity. Good luck getting your hands on one, however. Even though it’s cheap at 1,480 yen (or roughly $15), we don’t believe Thanko will ship directly stateside. Those of you who are more motivated might want to look into a service like White Rabbit Express.

Mondo 237 Clothing

The pattern on the fabric used was designed by artist Sal Giliberto.Continue Reading

Fashion Has Changed: Tron Hoodie

Tron Hoodie1

 

Tron’s legacy goes on. You might not agree with the computer effects the moviemakers used to make Jeff Bridges look several decades younger, but you have to agree that the Tron cycle was truly something else. And now you can wear it–or at least, a hoodie inspired by it–and look just as awesome.

This Tron hoodie was designed by HDDoobie and it even sports neon strips that actually glow for good measure.

So This is a Vibrating Pill That Can Cure Constipation

Vibrating Pill

 

In a nutshell: constipation sucks. Aside from being unbearably painful, it’s also leaves you feeling queasy, gassy, and uncomfortable for most of the day. There are a handful of medication available to treat constipation, but if you’re not big on ingesting chemicals to alleviate the symptoms, then here’s an alternative: a revolutionary vibrating capsule by developed by Vibrant which is currently being tested by a team of researchers headed by Yishai Ron.

The vitamin-sized pill is programmed to start vibrating six to eight hours after it’s swallowed. Instead of dissolving, it vibrates as it moves down your system. Eventually, it will pass the lower intestine, where it will theoretically induce movement to push waste down and prevent constipation from rearing its ugly head. A study done on 26 patients who had bowel movements only twice a week tried the pill and noticed an improvement with their pooping habits thereafter.

What do you think?

This Poster Plays Music With Every Touch

Playable Poster

If you’re thinking that this doesn’t look like your typical poster, then you’re spot on, because it isn’t. Beck’s playable poster is different in the sense that plays music when you touch it. It may look like a mere image of a speaker, but touch a couple of knobs and buttons and tunes from selected bands will begin to play.

The posters were commissioned by Beck’s to promote New Zealand’s local musicians, and this is truly an innovative way of doing that. Beck’s playable posters use conductive ink, with parts of the surface linked to an embedded flat panel speaker at the back, which in effect, makes the poster a speaker in itself.

Honda’s Mean Mower Clocks In At 116MPH

Fastest Lawnmower

 

Honda’s Mean Mower is exactly what its name implies: mean. It’s exactly that as it speeds down the road at a whopping 116MPH. Honda didn’t exactly make this for people to use on their front lawns, because God knows what you’ll cut or how you can mow when you’re moving at that speed. Rather, it was made to break a world record–and break a record it did, as it is now officially the record holder for world’s faster lawnmower.

The Mean Mower is actually a modded, souped-up version of the HF2620 Lawn Tractor tweaked by the British Touring Car Championship squad Team Dynamics.
