Arm Tattoo Oven Mitt Promises Painless Tattoo Removal

Arm Tattoo Oven Mitt Promises Painless Tattoo Removal
I’ve had various points in my life where I thought it might be cool to have a tattoo, and then I wimp out and decide not to go for it. I’m not sure if it’s my aversion to pain, or the idea that I might wake up one morning in 20 years and have to change that “Winona Forever” imprint to say “Wino Forever.” And since I don’t think they’re putting temporary tattoos in boxes of Cracker Jacks anymore, I think I just found the next best thing.

Doctor Who TARDIS Backpack: Get off My Back, Gallifrey
Women can’t shove enough stuff in their purses, and guys can’t shove enough crap in their backpacks. What you need is something with more capacity on the inside. Like this TARDIS backpack. It will hold all of your stuff, and probably a small timelord and his companion.

Joystick Shift Lever: Now Change the Steering Wheel to a Keyboard
Geek Greek was “looking for a fun mod” for his car. He turned to his love for flight simulators and ditched his car’s boring gear stick and replaced it with an old PC joystick. Now all that’s left is to turn his car into an airplane.

NERF Vulcan Sentry Gun: Ready! Aim! Fire!
When I was a kid, about the only NERF things you could buy were footballs and basketballs. These days, you can get some pretty amazing toy weapons which fire soft NERF darts. But this highly-customized sentry gun could be the best NERF build ever.

Superman Cereal: Part of a Nutritious Breakfast (on Krypton)
I just got back from seeing Man of Steel, so I’ve got Superman on the brain. It’s also time for breakfast around here, and I could use some cereal. Thanks to designer Phil Postma, I can enjoy both Superman and breakfast cereal at the same time.

Shape-It-Up Lets You Tweak 3D Shapes Using Simple Hand Gestures: Pottery Simulator
The researchers behind Shape-It-Up call it a “Hand Gesture Based Creative Expression of 3D Shapes Using Intelligent Generalized Cylinders”, but it’s totally a pottery simulator. Decades from now, if – when? – Paramount Pictures decides to remake Ghost, the characters will be using Shape-It-Up while a dubstep remix of Unchained Melody plays in the background.

mpup Dog House Sofa Gives Pups a Couch of Their Very Own
While your cat might already have a sofa, dogs shouldn’t feel left out from your living room much longer. While you certainly can let your pooch up on the couch and sit on your lap or cushions, I’m sure some of you prefer to keep the dog hair away from where our guests sit.

Space Invaders Silver Pendants Drop Down and Invade Your Neckline

MiG-23 Arcade Cabinet Perfect for Playing Flying Games

MiG-23 Arcade Cabinet Perfect for Playing Flying Games
I just recently had a custom arcade cabinet built for my basement. And while it’s totally awesome, mine has a classic arcade style to it. Had I known that having one built to look like an old Soviet MiG fighter jet was an option, though, I might have at least considered it.

Pokémon Poké Ball Cup: When You Gotta Catch a Drink

Pokémon Poké Ball Cup: When You Gotta Catch a Drink
I’m sorry to disappoint athletic Pokémon fans out there. This is not a jockstrap, it’s a drinking cup shaped like the monster catching Poké Ball. I’m not sure if it’s licensed, but I’m pretty sure Nintendo would rather license this and release all of its games on iOS than approve a Pokémon Ball Cup.

Leeds Phone Boxes Get Turned into TARDISes, Become Wi-Fi Hubs
It’s about time somebody started painting UK phone boxes in TARDIS blue. My only question is, what took so long? This is now happening in the city of Leeds. They are repainting their red phone boxes in a shade of TARDIS blue.
