Thumbs up for These Awesome Fingertip Portraits

Thumbs up for These Awesome Fingertip Portraits
Artist Dito Von Tease creates hilarious, yet totally recognizable portraits of famous people and pop culture icons by dressing up and manipulating close-up images of fingertips – including his own.

Space Invader Playing Cards Let You Play with the Alien Queen

Space Invader Playing Cards Let You Play with the Alien Queen
…no, not that Alien Queen, just the pixelated 8-bit type appears on these fun, officially-licensed Space Invaders playing cards.

iPhone Mini Vending Machine Case Won’t Eat Your Money

iPhone Mini Vending Machine Case Won’t Eat Your Money
I have a love-hate relationship with vending machines. They’re often loaded with tasty, junk food treats, but the type with those stupid turning wire racks often get stuck and you end up losing your money, or with a vending machine on top of you if you shake it too vigorously.

Emotional Dimmer Switch Wants to Keep You in the Dark

Emotional Dimmer Switch Wants to Keep You in the Dark
Set the mood for a romantic evening by dimming the lights. And if this particular dimmer switch had its way, then it’s going to stay dark and dim for good. That’s only if you want to keep it smiling, though.

Baby’s First Baby Doll is Horrifically Twisted, But Sends a Strong Message

Baby’s First Baby Doll is Horrifically Twisted, But Sends a Strong Message
A pregnant baby doll that has its own pregnant baby? This ‘toy’ would probably become every mothers’ worst nightmare, if it actually existed. Aside from that, the whole concept is just plain wrong and twisted. Fortunately, it’s not really a toy.

noPhoto Aims to Screw over Traffic Cameras

noPhoto Aims to Screw over Traffic Cameras
Yes, everyone hates traffic cameras. They catch you rushing through the intersection when the light changes from yellow to red, and if you make a right turn on red when you aren’t supposed to. The worst part is not even realizing you triggered a traffic camera, and just getting that damned ticket in the mail with a photo of your car.

Creeper Coffee Mug Is Oddly Square and Oddly Satisfying

Creeper Coffee Mug Is Oddly Square and Oddly Satisfying
Creepers always ruin your hard-earned progress in Minecraft, and it’s time to take revenge.  Don’t be a cotton-headed ninnymuggins, get the Creeper Coffee Mug, which has the face of your (least) favorite Minecraft monster printed on its side.  

Pokémon Etch-A-Sketch: Nintendo ES

Pokémon Etch-A-Sketch: Nintendo ES
When I was a kid, I never thought much of the Etch-A-Sketch. But a tool is only as good as the one using it. Did I just insult myself? I think I just praised Jane Labowitch, who calls herself Princess Etch-A-Sketch.

The Ultimate Medieval Beer Helmet Holds Two Flagons of Mead

The Ultimate Medieval Beer Helmet Holds Two Flagons of Mead
There’s nothing more obnoxious than one of those guys with a pair of camouflage party pants and a hat that you can sip beer out of. But leave it to the geeks of the world to make drinking beer from a helmet just a little cooler.

Cocoon Tree Tent Looks Like a Ball

Cocoon Tree Tent Looks Like a Ball
It wasn’t until recently that I realized that sleeping while hanging from the trees was a popular pastime. However, I guess that hanging tree tents not only give you a cool place to rest, but get you up off the ground and away from critters that can’t climb up and into your hovering outdoor domicile.

Spraytect Incorporates a Pepper Spray in Your Phone Case

Spraytect Incorporates a Pepper Spray in Your Phone Case
Phone cases are becoming quirkier and quirkier. This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen a pepper spray incorporated into the case (remember this one?). However, I think this different and newer variant called the Spraytect works and looks better.

Burger King ‘Fly Thru’ Now Serving Up Fast Food for Birds

Burger King ‘Fly Thru’ Now Serving Up Fast Food for Birds
Birds need their carbs and fats, too, right? It’s a good thing they can get their fill by ‘flying thru’ these Burger King ‘Fly Thru’ bird feeders. They look so well-made that you’d think the Burger King himself was behind them, but these were actually made by Brian Wolter.

Kyosho Space Ball R/C Chopper: Spaceballs: The Helicopter

Kyosho Space Ball R/C Chopper: Spaceballs: The Helicopter
Children are masters at breaking toys. They also have a doctorate in getting themselves hurt. Kyosho’s remote-controlled helicopter mitigates both tendencies with one feature. The entire thing is inside a spherical plastic cage that protects both itself and the people it will inevitably hit.

Takara Tomy Arts Penlight Helps You Draw Light Paintings with Ease

Takara Tomy Arts Penlight Helps You Draw Light Paintings with Ease
Light painting can be a pretty awesome technique, which involves the capture of a moving light source, using long-exposure photography. Photographers have created some pretty amazing images using the medium, but it can be complicated to pull off unless you know exactly what you’re doing, and have a camera with full manual exposure controls.

Felt Star Wars Creations: Stitch Wars

Felt Star Wars Creations: Stitch Wars
As you know, it’s pretty hard for us to pass up fun Star Wars items around these parts, so when I saw these quirky felt Star Wars plushes over on Etsy, I had to oblige and post them.

Ricky Bobby’s Wonder Bread Tracksuit up for Auction: If You Don’t Bid the Most, You’re Last
Thank you Lord baby Jesus… (and god bless the pygmies.) Ricky Bobby’s tracksuit from the movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is up for auction via a movie memorabilia company called ScreenUsed. The suit is an actual Sparco racing suit worn by professional racers, or in this case, Will Ferrell, when he played NASCAR racer Ricky Bobby.
