Review: ExoLens iPhone Lens System with ZEISS Optics

Review: ExoLens iPhone Lens System with ZEISS Optics
These days, smartphones can take some pretty great photos all on their own, but the biggest limitations of their cameras is the size of the lens and the size of their image sensors. Built-in lenses are usually set to a middle-of-the road field of view, so they’re usually best for…

Roomba Beer Pong Ups the Ante

Roomba Beer Pong Ups the Ante
Beer Pong has been around for ages, but maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Something that makes the game a bit more challenging. Someone came up with just the right idea: involve Roombas in the game. Megan N documented this game of beer pong being played using two Roomba robotic…

Selk’bag Original 5G Onesie Sleeping Bag: Sleep Walker

Selk’bag Original 5G Onesie Sleeping Bag: Sleep Walker

This Strandbeest Inspired Bike Is a Slow Ride
This is the sort of nightmarish bike H.R. Giger might sell you if he owned a creepy bike store. It’s slow, creepy and inspired by the Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. This thing was built by California art and engineering collective CARV. Obviously, they don’t have to get to places fast. This…

Labyrinth Funko POP! Figures Won’t Steal Your Baby Brother

Labyrinth Funko POP! Figures Won’t Steal Your Baby Brother
I watched Labyrinth growing up and the movie seriously creeped me out. Still, it had Miss Hottie 1986 Jennifer Connelly in it so I watched. David Bowie was one weird bastard in this movie.  Still I have fond memories of the ’80s thanks in part to this film. Fans of…

Ghostbusters Hamburgers: I Ain’t ‘Fraid of No Clogged Artery
I sort of wish someone here in the US would make the sort of weird hamburgers that they get in Japan on a regular basis. J.S. Burger Café in Japan has turned its burger grilling skills to making Ghostbusters themed hamburgers and they look oddly appetizing. I mean, I’m not…

Awamoko Pen Uses Soap Bubbles to Make Art

Awamoko Pen Uses Soap Bubbles to Make Art
When my kids were really small, I found it highly entertaining to use gobs of bath bubbles to create little wizard hats and beards on their little chubby faces. The trick was to see how tall you could get the hat before one of them crushed it or ate a…

Fire UP Charcoal Starter Wand Lets You Ditch the Lighter Fluid

Fire UP Charcoal Starter Wand Lets You Ditch the Lighter Fluid
One of the worst things about cooking burgers or steak on the grill is having to start the charcoal. For me it always seemed like the charcoal started up well enough, and then as soon as the fluid burned off, the coals were cold as ice and the meat never…
