Glowing S’mores Sticks are Camping Necessities

Cyclops Visor Flamethrower: You’ll Burn Your Eye out, Kid!

Cyclops Visor Flamethrower: You’ll Burn Your Eye out, Kid!
I don’t know about you, but I was always taught to keep my face away from fire. Only an insane person would break that rule by wearing a helmet that shoots fire from right in front of his eyeballs.

This TV Repels Mosquitoes

This TV Repels Mosquitoes
Yes, this really exists. LG is now selling a television set that drives away mosquitoes with ultrasonic sound waves. Because I always like to leave every door and window open while I watch TV, letting mosquitoes inside.

Emoji Billiard Balls: PoolMoji
What do you do when you and your co-workers get a new pool table at work? Naturally you decorate all of the balls with hand-painted emoji faces. Why not? It’s a pretty fun way to play a game of pool.

This Glass Slide on an L.A. Skyscraper Is Terrifying

This Glass Slide on an L.A. Skyscraper Is Terrifying
Heights. I hate them. Get me up on anything higher than a playground slide and I’m not comfortable. So there’s no way in hell I would be sliding down The Skyslide, which is a see-through glass slide fixed onto outside of the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

Othermill Pro Etches, Mills, and Prototypes Precise Circuit Boards on Your Desktop

Othermill Pro Etches, Mills, and Prototypes Precise Circuit Boards on Your Desktop
It wasn’t long ago that if you wanted to create precise circuit board prototypes, you’d have to send them out to a shop to be made. That approach isn’t exactly conducive to fostering creativity, and limits engineers’ willingness to experiment.

Civilization VI Cities are Something Completely Different

Civilization VI Cities are Something Completely Different
One of my all-time favorite video games is Civilization V. The ability to build an empire and take it from the stone ages up to space flight is incredibly fun. I had high hopes for Civilization: Beyond Earth but that game turned out to be pretty crappy.

PizzaDome Makes Roughing it Less Rough
I like to camp, but in Texas we have only two seasons- hot and August. In August, ole Beelzebub won’t come to Texas.

Build Rick and Morty’s Portal Gun for Cheap

Build Rick and Morty’s Portal Gun for Cheap
By now you’ve probably seen many builds of Rick and Morty’s portal gun, but this version from DIY Prop Shop looks pretty amazing. Makes me want to get schwifty. Take a sh*t on the floor! A giant head must have shown up at DIY prop shop and bellowed, “Show me what you got!”
