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.

elJtW9W

 

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 Stimulates Hair Growth By Shooting Lasers At Your Scalp

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. Somewhere in the middle of this is the Theradome, which is a helmet that shoots lasers at your scalp to simulator hair growth.

The Theradome is the brainchild of Tamim Hamid, a former NASA research engineer. The headgear should be worn twice a week for 20 minutes. Users can expect to see results in 3 to 4 months, as the helmet’s lasers will retard the shrinking of hair follicles to prevent hair loss.

So This Guy Turned His Shower Head Into a Girl…

lady-shower-head-sadness-1

The title says it all. A man who goes by the handle ARuFa was bored and lonely, so he embarked on a small DIY project to transform his shower head into something more…personal, weird, and downright creepy. As you can see, he built a girl right over his shower, for lack of a better word.

With a mask, acrylic paint, some newspapers, and duct tape, ARuFA created the face. He completes the look with a wig, a pair of balloons which are stuffed into a hastily put-together body that’s dressed in flimsy lingerie. Either he was really bored or…really bored.

Hit the break to check out in-the-making pictures of the sort-of human shower head.Continue Reading

Modest Urns for Modest (and Cheap) People

Modest Urns

These Modest Urns by Archie McPhee are a novelty or joke at best. I think. They’re McPhee’s “most modestly priced receptacle” which can hold up to 62.8 cubic inches of ashes or whatever else you want to put into it. I say “ashes” because they’re being marketed as uber-affordable urns for your ashes, your pet’s ashes, or for whoever else’s ashes. For all intents and purposes, it should be able to get the job done.

Each Modest Urn is priced at $9.50. If you want to be even cheaper more modest, then you can get one of these for free (well, almost) by buying a can of coffee and recycling it when all the coffee’s gone. Because yes, as we can all clearly see, the Modest Urn is basically a decorated coffee can.Continue Reading

Fierce Fashion: Jeans Distressed By Tigers, Lions, and Bears

Zoo Jeans

Got a passion for fashion? Well, so do the animals at the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. A volunteer group called the Mineko Club teamed up with the zoo to create the Zoo Jeans which are truly like no other. These distressed pants are ripped and customized by none other than the tigers, lions, and bears of the zoo!

The handlers basically wrapped the animals’ favorite toys–rubber balls and old tires–in denim and gave it back to them. After they’re done gnawing and clawing at their denim-wrapped toys, the denim was then used to make the Zoo Jeans.
