Captain Kirk Bookend: Space Librarian

Captain Kirk Bookend: Space Librarian
ThinkGeek is selling this cool Captain Kirk bookend/sculpture, and yes, that is singular, you only get one. If you want a pair, you’ll have to pay twice as much. Isn’t a single bookend about as useful as a single sock?

Honda & Hitachi Breathalyzer for Car Smart Keys: Keytotaler
These days, you can have a breathalyzer installed in your car, but someday the life-saving device may be able to warn you while you’re still at the party. Honda and Hitachi say they’re working on a breathalyzer that’s compact enough to be integrated into a car’s smart key.

Dress Your Roomba like R2-D2: Vacuudroid

Dress Your Roomba like R2-D2: Vacuudroid
Roombas are pretty boring as far as droids go. They don’t beep or bloop or toss you a lightsaber when you need one. They just do one job. Vacuum your floor. Your Roomba may lack R2-D2’s personality, but not for much longer.

The BBQ Toolbox: Hungry Man Dinner

The BBQ Toolbox: Hungry Man Dinner
There are only two things a man needs. His toolbox and a BBQ grill. The BBQ Toolbox combines both, creating a powerful new man-accessory. It looks like a toolbox from the outside, but it is actually a portable barbecue grill.

Life-size Juggernog Fridge Replica: Merch-A-Cola
When Jelssin needs to feel big and strong, he can reach for Juggernog tonight. Or any night. The PS4 owner and Call of Duty fan recently won a real-life replica of the Juggernog refrigerator from CoD’s Zombies mode, courtesy of Super-Gamer Builds.

Fallout 4 Sugar Bombs Cereal Bowl Begs for Crunch Berries

Fallout 4 Sugar Bombs Cereal Bowl Begs for Crunch Berries
In Fallout 4 it seems like I find boxes of Sugar Bombs cereal everywhere I go. It’s only slightly less prolific than bottles of Nuka Cola. I’ve often wondered what Nuka Cola tastes like, I assume it’s sort of like generic Coke (or maybe the sticky sweet “New Coke”).

Lolita Knives are Handmade and Will Julienne the Crap out of Carrots

Lolita Knives are Handmade and Will Julienne the Crap out of Carrots
Check out these wacky knives. These aren’t any normal knives though, they are made in Japanese Lolita style. They don’t roll off an assembly line somewhere; they are made by fourth-generation Japanese bladesmith Shingeki Tanaka. One of them is a girly looking pink with hearts carved into the blade and is called “Lappin.”

Dell XPS 12: Packing Productivity and Portability

Dell XPS 12: Packing Productivity and Portability
Over the years, I’ve worked with all different sizes of laptops, from tiny 10″ netbooks to hulking 17″ luggable workstations. Each of these served its purpose, but the fact is that unless you’re doing heavy duty content creation, 15″ and larger laptops are too bulky for most users to carry around, so a 12″ or 13″ model is ideal for everyday productivity.

Giraffe Tape Measure Sticks out Its Neck for You

Giraffe Tape Measure Sticks out Its Neck for You
Tape measures come in all different forms, but most of them have boring designs. Not this one. This tape measure goes by the name of Miss Meter and it is shaped like a tiny giraffe. It is probably the most adorable way to take measurements that was ever created.

Tesla Vs. Edison Fighting Game: Now You’re Playing with Power!

Tesla Vs. Edison Fighting Game: Now You’re Playing with Power!
Dayton, Ohio based art collective Real Art had a great idea for a Mortal Kombat style video game so they got to work and built an arcade cabinet. But this version of Mortal Kombat is a little different.

Instant Dry Umbrella: Shake to Dry

Instant Dry Umbrella: Shake to Dry
As handy as umbrellas are, they have some drawbacks. After your umbrella has protected you from the elements, you have to put it away somewhere so it can dry. If you put it on your hardwood floor, it leaves a puddle, and if you just toss it on your rug, it might even stain it.

Graphene and Gold Diabetic Wearable Makes the Prick Smaller

Graphene and Gold Diabetic Wearable Makes the Prick Smaller
My mother is diabetic and while she has to prick her fingers multiple times per day to check glucose levels, she doesn’t have to give herself injections. For the numerous diabetics out there that have to prick fingers and give themselves insulin shots, diabetes can be a big pain.

NASA Sends Compact Workout Machine to ISS for Testing

NASA Sends Compact Workout Machine to ISS for Testing
Astronauts have to work out for at least two hours per day or they can experience muscle or bone density loss. I can only assume not working out for a few days means that their bodies will quit on them in the exact way that Rigby’s did in that episode of Regular Show where he refused to eat a salad.

Champagne Gun: Super Sobriety Soaker

Champagne Gun: Super Sobriety Soaker
The lives of the rich and famous are not like our meager lives. The filthy rich light their cigars with cash. They have toilet paper rolls of thousand dollar bills in the bathroom. You know what else they do?

Retro NES Shower Curtain: Super Shower Time

Retro NES Shower Curtain: Super Shower Time
Forget Super Mario Bros. Cleantendo’s Super Shower Time was the game to beat back in the day. You got the high score by soaping up and scoring extra hygiene points. At least that’s what this cool retro shower curtain implies.
