Check Out Acer’s Selfie Hat for London Fashion Week!

Selfie-Hat

In recent years, people have reached new heights when it comes to vanity. Maybe the era of selfies began when phone makers began putting a camera with each smartphone they made. It exploded when front-facing cameras were upgraded and when monopods (aka selfie sticks) made their way to Amazon.

Someone already came up with the Selfie Brush. Now are you ready for the Selfie Hat? The latter was created by fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis in partnership with Acer. The pink sombrero is eye-catching not only because of all that glitter, but because of an attachment on the brim where Acer’s Iconia A-1 840 tablet is tucked in.

KFC Keyboard

A keyboard made by KFC that’s covered with tiny(but still yummy-looking) pieces of chicken and drumstick-shaped flash drives? Where else can you expect to find gadgets like these but Japan? Of course, it’s not complete without a mouse…so KFC Japan threw in a drumstick mouse into the mix, too!

Granted, the only letters you’ll find on the keyboard are K, F, and C. You’ll have a lot of guesswork to do with the other letters if you’re not used to typing without glancing down at the letters on your keyboard anymore.

Put on the HyperLip the next time you take a selfie and watch the likes pile up…not. It’s an unusual mouthpiece that forces the face of its wearer into a grimace. If you think only one kind of grimace exists, then think again, because these photos will prove you wrong. Who knew there could be so many ways to grimace–from smug and different to manic and just plain scary?

Nicolas Cage is a great actor, although he hasn’t been in many good movies lately. Regardless whether you agree or disagree with that, I’m fairly certain you wouldn’t want to see his mug plastered all over your computer screen. Unless you’re his ultimate mega fan, that is. A browser extension that does exactly just that is called nCage. It’s perfect for pranksters and for the aforementioned mega fans, because it basically turns every image on your browser window into a photo featuring none other than Nicolas Cage.

They’ve mixed it up, too, so you’ll be treated to a slew of Nic Cages with various expressions, hair styles, and eye sizes (yes, there’s one where he does the crazy eyes.) Check out nCage here.

Theradome helmet

Hair loss can be a pain to deal with. There are many hair growing treatments available, ranging from non-invasive shampoos and topicals to the excruciatingly-invasive hair plugs and implants.
