A Drumstick For Your Ear? KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

 

KFC Japan is at it again. Remember the chicken keyboard and mouse they recently offer to their patrons? It looks like their higher-ups decided that that wasn’t enough, so they came up with the drumstick iPhone cover. It’s so ridiculous that it almost makes you want one, just for the heck of it. Even Colonel Sanders looks like he’s rolling on the floor laughing like there’s no tomorrow (in case you’re wondering, his speech bubble says something along the lines of “Why is it so big?”)

Well, that’s what we’re wondering, too. The only way to get one of the cases was to win it from KFC Japan. Dang, that’s a huge case. Ironically, it’s making me not want to eat chicken after looking at it.

Farm of the Undead: Grow Your Own Zombie with Chia

Chia Pet Zombie

Ever since The Walking Dead took the world by storm, people have become pretty obsessed with the undead. Companies have also been scrambling to take advantage of the trend, and Chia is no exception. You might be familiar with Joseph Enterprises’ line of Chia Pets, where you basically just water it until the chia grows and covers the planter that it came with.

You’ve already seen the kitten or puppy versions– now check out the Zombie-themed ones. There’s the Creepy Holden, which features a zombie head poking out from your (soon-to-grow) garden. Then there’s Lifeless Lisa, his female counterpart, and the Restless Arm which features none other than a, well, restless arm.

You can get them from Amazon or Home Depot for $30.

Everybody Was Sumo Wrestling: Sumo Suits

Sumo Suits

Sumo wrestling ain’t sumo without the extra padding. And by padding, we mean all that extra weight (fat, muscle, and everything in between) on your body. The closest thing you can get to sumo wrestling is by donning this Sumo Suit and going at your opponent like there’s no tomorrow. Granted, you won’t be able to crush your opponent under your weight– I mean, it’s just a suit with lots of padding, for crying out loud– but the extra bulk will let you move and simulate the motions of an actual sumo wrestler.

At least, in theory. It’s available for $1,600 (or you could just, you know, buy a lot of Big Macs with the money and gain that extra weight for real.)

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: Hungrier By the Letter

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.

HyperLip Plastic Lips Forces Any Face Into a Grimace

HyperLip

 

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?

The HyperLip was created by French designer Sascha Nordmeyer back in 2009 as an art project. Now they’re back and are being used at the Olympus Photography Playground traveling exhibition, with the next event taking place in Cologne, Germany on September 11th to October 5th, 2014.

Whistle Straws Let You Whistle While You Sip

Whistle Straws1

 

 

Feel like annoying the crap out of your friends? Nothing does that better than these Wet My Whistle straws. First and foremost, their design is based on slide whistles, which are played by blowing on one end while sliding the other in and out. They’re easy to play, but difficult to master.

The Whistle Straws build upon this concept, only you’re supposed to slide the straw in and out of your drink. The varying beverage levels changes the amount of empty space in the straw, which allows you to produce different tunes as you go along.

Japan is known for many things. Futuristic gadgets, capsule hotels, sumo wrestlers, and yes, their vast range of facial exercises that are as bizarre as they come. The latest of these is the Facial Fitness Pao, which looks a lot like a toy helicopter’s main rotor blades, only it’s noticeably less stiff.

It also has a mouthpiece in the middle, which you’re supposed to pop into your mouth before bouncing your head like a madman to exercise your facial muscles. Can it actually sculpt your facial muscles, as it promises to? Let us know if you decide to fork $135 over to try it out.
