Wearable Feeder Mask Lets You Get Face to Beak With Hummingbirds

Wearable Hummingbird Feeder Mask

Calling all lovers of birds! A contraption called the ‘Eye to Eye’ is now available so you can get up close and personal with hummingbirds while you feed them. It’s basically a wearable bird feeder that lets you literally come face to beak with the birds as they feed. A miniaturized feeding tube is embedded in the middle of the mask, which means the birds will be in your face while it feeds.

For $80, you’ll get two feeding tubes, two laminated inlays, and one face shield (of course you need one.) Is it worth it? Is it not? That depends on you and on the experience that you’re hoping to get out of it. You can get the ‘Eye to Eye’ mask here.

These Protein Bars Are Made From Cricket Flour

cricket-flour-protien-bars-640x533

Has the Paleo craze gone too far? These Exo Cricket Flour Protein Bars are said to have been developed by a “three-Michelin-starred chef”, which we’re presumably being told about to convince us they don’t taste like crap. The fact remains that they’re made from flour derived from an insect. That wouldn’t be so bad on its own, since insects are indeed more protein dense, and are even being considered as a solution to world hunger. But each bar packs in only 10g of protein, while clocking in between 280-300 calories. That’s not a whole bunch on its own, but for how little protein you get, we’re a little let down; we thought the point of putting up with cricket meat was for its higher protein load.

The bars are “Paleo Compliant”, and come in Blueberry Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon & Cacao Nut flavours. It’s $10 for a sampler three-pack.

Chesters Tennis Flops: I’m Walking On Tennis Balls

Chesters Tennis Flops

You can walk on sunshine, and you can do it while walking on tennis balls, too. Well, not on actual balls per se, but with Chesters Tennis Flops, your soles will be resting on the same felt material that the balls are made of. In case you’re worried about the slippers getting dirty from the rain and from the typical wear and tear that flip flops are normally subjected to, don’t. They’re covered with a non-toxic protective silicone-based coating which makes them resistant to water, sweat, and dust.

Chesters Tennis Flops are available for $27.

‘Tiny Hands’ Gives You Creepily Small Hands–Well, Sort Of

Tiny Hands

 

No, there’s nothing wrong with that dude’s hands. You should be able to tell easily if you look closely, because they’re clearly made from plastic. What he actually has is a pair of Tiny Hands and it’s exactly what its name says it is. Molded from plastic, you can use these unusually small plastic human hands to pull pranks, scare the bejeezus out of people, and shoot some pretty gnarly photos.

There isn’t anything particularly funny about a person’s hands. Unless, of course, they’re about five times too small for their body. The set includes one right and one left miniature mitt so you can make a silly salute, give a hilarious high-five, and maybe even pop some bubbles on the Lawrence Welk show.

Tiny Hands are available for $8.99.

Pepperoni Pizza Onesie

 

Can’t get enough of pizza? You can do more than just eat it now, since these Pepperoni Pizza onesies actually exist. Yep, that’s right: you can now wear your all-time favorite food! While the onesie won’t make you full, you will get stares, double-takes, and the occasional drooling admirer every once in a while.

Too bad the fabric isn’t edible (and pizza-flavored) right? The Pepperoni Pizza onesie is available online for about ~$100.

‘Project:HumanHelmet': Custom-Made Helmets Of Your Head

Custom Head Helmets

Not a fan of the helmets currently available to motorists? Then you should have a word with Jyo John Mulloor, who disliked them so much that he sought to design his own. Dubbed Project:HumanHelmet, his lightweight helmet features a very unusual (and personal) design: your own head. An image of your head is basically taken and used to “design” the helmet, so it’ll look like you’re not wearing one.

Enforcers checking if you’ve got a helmet on or not might not be fans of this, but motorists who appreciate a unique design might.

Go From Scrawny To Brawny In Seconds With These Muscle Suits

muscle-suit-1

Spending hours at the gym is for chumps. If you want to look ripped, at least at first glance, pumping iron isn’t the most efficient way to go. No, these muscle suits from Flex Design Constumes will get you looking like a Greek God in the time it takes to put them on, and that’s the kind of efficiency we can get behind. Hand-made and airbrushed for a natural look and feel, these suits come in various, uh, sizes: lean, standard, super, giant, and mega muscle suits. If ‘mega’ isn’t beefy enough, you can apparently ask for a custom build that might push you up to ridiculous proportions; maybe you’re going for that Incredible Hulk look… There’s an option to add veins, for even more realism. But of course, when it comes to quality hand-made items, you’re going to pay a premium. The Lean Muscle Suit starts at $919, and prices go way up from there, to $3,499 for the “Mega” suit. For that amount of money you could probably get some psychotherapy to help you figure out why you would want to spend $3,500 on a fake muscle suit, but hey, we don’t judge.

Get a (Sugar) High With Every Sip: Marshmallow Peeps-Flavored Milk

Marshmallow Peeps Flavored Milk

It was bound to happen, and it finally did: Marshmallow Peeps-flavored milk. Kids will love it, while adults will either love it or hate it. One thing’s for sure: it’s guaranteed to give everyone who drinks it a sugar high, regardless of age. The limited-edition milk is being introduced by Prairie Farms and it will come in three flavors: easter egg nog, chocolate marshmallow, and regular marshmallow.

Each serving contains 37 grams of sugar. To put that into perspective, a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola has 35 grams of sugar. To drink or not to drink? That is the question.

Of Swings and Booze: Bar With a Swingset for Seats Exists

Swingset Bar

 

There’s another way to get dizzy when you’re at the bar, but it doesn’t involve knocking back more shots. Rather, all you need to do is push off the ground– that is, if you happen to be seated on one of the swings that serve as seats on this unusual bar. Instead of the usual stools, it has a number of swings surrounding it. You obviously can’t push off as hard as you like because you’ll probably end up banging your knees (while damaging the bar in the process.)

It’s being sold by Duffy London and comes with a pretty hefty pricetag: $37,465.
