Toothbrush Sanitizer: the Toothbrush of Toothbrushes

Toothbrush Sanitizer: the Toothbrush of Toothbrushes
“Your toothbrush cleans your teeth. What cleans your toothbrush?” Nice tagline. If your answer to that question is “umm..” then you might want to take a look at the VioLight Zapi toothbrush sanitizer. I think we all have to take a look at the VioLight Zapi toothbrush sanitizer, because really, what cleans your toothbrush?

Frozen Smiles Add Bite to Your Beverages

Frozen Smiles Add Bite to Your Beverages
There are a lot of offbeat options if regular ice just isn’t good enough for you, but if even those aren’t as weird as you’d like, you can always try some denture-shaped… uh… “cubes.” Frozen Smiles are styled as “not your grandfather’s ice tray,” but they don’t promise they aren’t made from your grandfather’s actual dentures. You never know–those icy grins may be perfect for your next Halloween party, or any other time you want to break the ice with unusual cocktails.

Happy V-Day: Love You More Than Xbox

Happy V-Day: Love You More Than Xbox
If your significant other is starting to suspect you may care more about Master Chief and Major Nelson’s Twitter, it might be time to offer tangible (and hilarious) proof to the contrary. Especially with Valentine’s Day coming up and all. This card tells it like it is (or like you want ’em to believe) with a simple message: I love you more than Xbox.

Akashi: Mario and Mickey Mouse Melded

Akashi: Mario and Mickey Mouse Melded
I never thought I’d have a reason to write about Mario and Mickey Mouse in the same article again. Go figure. This strange character imagines what would happen if everyone’s favorite video game plumber stepped into the teleportation chamber with the world’s most famous four-fingered rodent and got all BrundleFlied. Created by sculptor Dave Bondi, AKASHI is the ultimate mashup between Mickey and Mario.

Victorinox Targets Handyman Geeks With Presentation Pro

Victorinox Targets Handyman Geeks With Presentation Pro
I saw this comic strip where everything that the characters needed for camping – pots, pans, tents, sleeping bags, bonfire, even a fridge – was tucked inside a swiss knife. It’s funny, sure, but it would really be neat if there were Swiss knives like that, ala Dragonball‘s capsules. 

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360
So maybe you like to play the latest and greatest (arcade) games but you don’t necessarily like the latest and greatest controllers. The answer, clearly, is to build a hybrid monster of controllers to suit your specifications.

Mp3 Belt Buckle Perfect for Wrestlers, Truck Drivers

Mp3 Belt Buckle Perfect for Wrestlers, Truck Drivers
What could say “I really know how to dress myself” more than a nice big brass belt buckle. You know – the type that’s so huge that you dare not try to bend at the waist, lest you puncture an internal organ?

IPhone 3g Kings Spits in the Face of the Economic Crisis

IPhone 3g Kings Spits in the Face of the Economic Crisis
For me luxury items are those that are not only ridiculously expensive but are also very impractical or unnecessary. Personally I think the iPhone is still quite expensive. I think it spreads itself too thin in trying to be too many things at once.

Time to Crash Some Servers: Download Links to Windows 7 Beta

Time to Crash Some Servers: Download Links to Windows 7 Beta
Windows users, start your browsers. The folks from Sizzled Core are pointing the way! They posted direct download links to both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of the beta version of Windows 7, also called Windows Vista Home Business Basic Premium Ultimate We Screwed Up Here’s The Right Version.

Remote Control Light Switch: No Deal!

Remote Control Light Switch: No Deal!
Maybe it’s just me, but this wireless remote light switch makes me think of the button you’re supposed to press when you want to keep the money on Deal or No Deal. You know, the one that most of the losers on that show don’t bother to take, even when the offer is well into the 6-figures and they’ve been living on welfare most of their lives. Designer Tobias Wong’s On/Off light switch will remotely control anything you can plug into an outlet.

We Love Katamari Paintings

We Love Katamari Paintings
The Katamari Damacy games are beautiful, addictive… and kind of a pain in the butt. You’ve got to get all this stuff, and the King of All Cosmos is so specific, and then there are all the cousins.

Fridgebuzzz Atari 400 Synth has Buttons, Knobs Galore

Fridgebuzzz Atari 400 Synth has Buttons, Knobs Galore
This wild looking analog synthesizer gets its body from a classic Atari 400 computer – but none of its brains. Created by Paul Rothman’s Fridgebuzzz Electronics (yes, that’s supposed to have 3 “z’s”), the simply named Atari Synth has more buttons and knobs than you can shake a stick at. The Atari Synth is a polyphonic 12-oscillator, 3 modulator square wave synthesizer that’s controlled by arcade-style pushbuttons and potentiometers.

Pac-Man Gets the Mosaic Treatment

Pac-Man Gets the Mosaic Treatment
Here’s a piece of art any retro game fanatic would be proud to hang on their wall. It’s a handmade Pac-Man mixed media piece, using teeny ceramic tiles in place of pixels. Perhaps inspired by the oh-so-awesome Ms.

It’S a-Me, Your Best-(Sorta)-Selling Game Ever! Wii Sports!

It’S a-Me, Your Best-(Sorta)-Selling Game Ever! Wii Sports!
Nintendo’s first money printing machine was Super Mario Bros., which sold 40 million units. What kind of game do you think could top that? A Zelda game? Pokemon? Another Mario game?  It’s none of the above, because a certain bundled game called Wii Sports has now sold at least 42 million copies. According to VGChartz, Wii Sportz achieved that in just over 2 years thanks to Nintendo’z marketing skillz.

Dragon Cake!!!!! *Head Esplodes*

Dragon Cake!!!!! *Head Esplodes*
In a marmalade forest (forest), between the make-believe trees, in a cottage cheese – cottage, lives not Albi but this head – esploding Cake Dragon. I meant Dragon Cake. WHAT’S UP. WHAT IS UP. Some guy named John got this as his birthday cake.
