What Will They Think Of Next: Pillow Spoon Rest

Pillow Spoon Rest

So this is a pillow spoon rest. There’s not much to say, because the name says it all. It’s basically a miniature pillow made from silicone where you’re supposed to rest your mixing spoon on while you’re busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. You could use a plate, but then, where’s the fun in that? You could also choose to go without it and rest your sauce-laden spoon against the pan or bowl, but things can get messy pretty quick if you don’t clean off the spoon as much as possible before doing so.

The Pillow Spoon Rest retails for $7.99 and will be available later this September.

Frebble Lets You ‘Hold Hands’ With Loved Ones Who Are Far Away

Frebble

To say that technology has changed how people communicate is an understatement. Where people used to send telegrams and letters, we now send emails, instant messages, or SMS. Where people used to pick up the phone and talk to each other, we now use video chat and video conferencing where we get to see and interact with the people we’re talking to.

Taking things one step further are the folks behind Frebble, which look like modified joysticks that you’re supposed to grab with one hand as you would, well, a joystick. It let’s people “hold hands” even though they’re far away by communicating these sensations to the other party.Continue Reading

Uh, What? Washboard Will Mail You Quarters For Your Laundry

Washboard

 

The Internet is where you find all things absurd, kooky, and cool. Washboard is a little bit of everything, although its name doesn’t give much away. It’s basically a monthly subscription service of sorts where they’ll send you quarters which you’re supposed to use at the laundromat so you can do your laundry. It makes sense, considering most people have to scramble and look for change when they’ve got loads to wash.

The part that doesn’t though, are the rates. Under the $10 per month plan, Washboard will send you ten bucks’ worth of quarters for $15. For $20 in quarters, you’ll need to cough up $27. You don’t really get your money’s worth, that’s for sure. Washboard’s campaign was up and running but they had to pull the plug because their concept violated their payment processor’s terms of service.

So for now, I guess you’ll have to stick to change machines or get your quarters elsewhere.

No Thanks: Giant Isopod iPhone Case

arthropod-iphone-case-1

Is it an isopod? An arthropod? We’re no taxonomists and we really have no idea at the kind of life form we’re looking at. But we do know that it’s one of the strangest iPhone cases we’ve come across, and it’s definitely one you should be getting if you’re into being stared at in public transport. You’ll have to pay $80 for the silver version, and $120 for the gold one. They’re only making 500 of these, so any buyer can feel that they have something really special. As if sticking a giant… animal of some kind wasn’t special enough.

It seems to be Japan only at the moment.

It’s Almost Like They Want You to Slip: Banana-Shaped Caution Cones

Banana-Shaped Caution Cones

Making caution cones and signs a whole lot more interesting are the fine folks from Banana Products. You see, they’ve taken the conventional yellow cones that warn passersby about slippery floors and turned it into something far more eye catching: a gigantic banana peel. The irony and humor is not lost on us.

The Banana Cones are made from high quality polypropylene and have the warning message printed on all four sides in black and red print.Continue Reading

Facebank is a Creepy Coin Bank That Eats Your Spare Change

Face Bank

 

 

The Face Bank is one of the creepiest coin banks we’ve recently come across. It’s one of those electronic coin banks that don’t accept your deposits passively. You might remember those dog coin banks where an adorable canine hides in a box and reaches out to grab your coin when you put in on the slot.

Well, instead of reaching over or nudging the coin into it, the Face Bank gobbles it up instead. Just put the coin close to its mouth and watch it eat your spare change right up. It probably wasn’t made to look creepy, but it does.

A Pest in the Water: Giant Cockroach Float

Giant Cockroach Float

 

When you tell people that there’s a giant cockroach in the water, then you can expect a few of them to freak out and jump out of the pool because, well, there’s a roach. But put this particular giant roach into the pool, and you’ll get a few disgusted side glances at most along with a couple of double-takes.

The Giant Cockroach float is exactly what its name says it is, and while it may not feel as scratchy as an actual roach (“scratchy” being my choice of adjective, after several encounters with roaches that seemed to think that it was a good idea to hide in my shoe, of all places), it’s still very much capable of raising the hairs of those who are katsaridaphobic.

The float is available online for $29.95.

YankMe Candles Bring Disgusting Scents Like ‘Dutch Oven’ to Your Home–Well, Sort Of!

YankMe Candle

 

Can you imagine lighting up a candle that smells like urinal mints or skid marks? What about dutch oven and dog vomit-scented candles? Not very appealing, are they? These are exactly what the labels of YankMe Candles say, and those are the scents that’ll hit you the moment you open the lid.

Who in their right mind would buy candles with such unpleasant scents? Nobody, obviously. YankMe knows that, and they’re only yanking your chain because the candles don’t really smell like what their labels claim once you burn them. There’s actually smelly disc on the inside that’s emanating the stink of urinals and farts, but once you get that out of the way, you’ll be treated to soothing scents that you’d expect from a regular ol’ candle.

The candles retail for $14.99 each.
