When I Said I Needed a Car Charger for My Phone, This Isn’t What I Had in Mind
External batteries are great to keep our mobile devices juiced up, but I’ve never seen one in a car form factor before. Now we have one.

The Force is Strong with This Star Wars Dress Made from Bedsheets
We’ve seen some fun Star Wars dresses, but this is one of my favorite yet. It looks so awesome because it is made from vintage Star Wars bedsheets. That material makes this dress authentically vintage, while being a totally fashionable dress you could wear out on the town.

These ‘Fur’ Coats Are Actually Made Using Men’s Chest Hair. Yuck.
I don’t care much for people who wear fur because I think there are many different and much more humane ways to keep warm when the weather’s being particularly unforgiving. I have no such objections to this ‘fur’ coat commissioned by dairy company Arla, because the ‘fur’ part actually stops at its name.
