Skull Doorknob: Do You Dare Enter?

Skull Doorknob1

“Do not enter” and “keep out” signs on your door won’t really keep anyone out, especially people who are used to barging into your room without knocking. If you’re looking for something that’ll really stop people in their tracks when they see it on your door, then the Skull Doorknob by Forever Fineness might just be the thing for you.

As the name implies, it’s a doorknob that comes in the shape of a skull. Not just any skull, but a particularly grotesque one at that. The coolest part? The key which comes in the shape of a bone (pretty apt, don’t you think?)Continue Reading

Revijour True Love Tester Bra: If It Ain’t True Love, It Ain’t Unhooking

True Love Tester Bra

Japanese lingerie company Ravijour has come up with a revolutionary albeit unusual piece of lingerie dubbed as the “True Love Tester Bra.” As its name implies, the brassiere comes with built-in sensors that monitors its wearer’s heart rate and vital stats. The sensors also keep track of the secretion of a certain hormone called Catecholamine, which apparently is secreted only when a women is truly in love.

Data on these stats are sent via Bluetooth to a smartphone that’s running the bra’s companion app, which measures heart rate elevation, to determine whether it’s the real deal or just a fling. When it’s deemed to be the former, the app will wirelessly unhook the bra.

Want to Snuggle With Bunnies? At The Rabbit Cafe, You Can

Rabbit Cafe

Bunnies. What’s not to love?

I’d say nothing, but parents who’ve had to take care of the pets their kids brought home (but neglected to care for) will have plenty to say about that. Truth be told, there’s a lot of work involved to make sure that the rabbits are well-fed and are living in a clean environment. The thing is, most people, young and old, just want to cuddle with them without having to deal with the mess.

The solution? The Rabbit Cafe. It’s another one of those unusual cafes in Japan that allow people to drop by for some coffee, sandwiches, and cuddle time with bunnies.

These Headphones Will Mess With Your Head

reverse_610x288

The nice thing about art is that is often makes ‘why’ irrelevant. Granted, sometimes the artist will pay lip service for why he’s done this or that, but art is supposed to evoke emotions within you. Looking at the above Reverse Listening Device, we can’t help but think “WTF is that”, which we’d immediately qualify as effective art. Even briefly delving into the “why” of the thing sort of takes away from its beauty. But in the interest of sound reporting (something we’re definitely known for), the above is the creation of UK artist Dominic Wilcox, who wanted to create a display at Selfridges department store in London as part of an exhibition called the “Festival of Imagination.” It’s called “Variations On Normal”, and is simply a set of headphones that take sounds coming from the left and funnel them to your right ear, and vice versa. The sensation of wearing it is described as “very strange”. Artists are known to give enlightening descriptions.

No, no, this isn’t going to be made into a real product. We’d still like to give it a listen though.

Eat This: Geometric Molds For the Best Muffin Tops Ever

Geometric Muffin Tops

Nobody wants to hear about muffin tops, especially those who are particularly conscious about their figures. But “muffin tops” don’t merely stand for body parts that most people want to get rid of; they also stand for actual muffin tops. If you’re a huge baking buff and want to give your muffins a bit more personality and pizzazz, then these geometric molds will do the trick.

Just pour the batter into the bottom tin and top it with the Bakeshape muffin toppers before popping them into the over. The results are freshly-baked muffin goodness that look store-bought because of their fancy schmancy shapes.

Chips and Soda In One: Mountain Dew-Flavored Cheetos

Mountain Dew Flavored Cheetos

 

Mountain Dew goes great with Cheetos, but it doesn’t necessarily follow through that Mountain Dew-flavored Cheetos would taste good. It sounds extremely strange and unusual, but it’s an actual snack that’s available in Japan. It’s packaged in cups and were “made in cooperation with Pepsi, to ensure an authentic taste experience.”

It’s hard to imagine Cheetos not being cheesy or Mountain Dew not being fizzy–but hey, we won’t knock it until we’ve tried it.

Mountain Dew-flavored Cheetos is being sold for $3.80 a cup.

Bacon Drink Tabs

 

If you think that bacon was the greatest thing to ever come along since sliced bread, then you might be one of the few who can actually drink the resulting concoction when a one of these effervescent bacon tabs is dropped into a glass of water (or even worse, into a glass of juice or soda!)

These are what its name claims they are. Bacon is the meat that has inspired dozens upon dozens of stuff, from pillows and soap to deodorant and coffee, but sometimes, you have to wonder where to draw the line between cool and quirky to plain weird and gross. Well, these bacon tabs will let you add that distinct smoky, meaty flavor to any drink you desire. The only question is: can you stomach it?

A tin of effervescent bacon tabs costs $2.35.
