Barrel Mug Is Classy Way To Serve Beer

Barrel Mug Is Classy Way To Serve Beer
These handcrafted Barrel Mugs are made individually from American white oak slats and lined with stainless steel. That means that every mug is a beautiful one-of-a-kind product. They won’t alter your beverage’s taste, but it will up their presentation for sure.

Burger King Cheetos Chicken Fries Will Turn Fingers Orange
The fast food industry hasn’t been afraid to make some really weird snacks. Typically, these strange foods are offered in Japan, like those pumpkin and chocolate fries that McDonald’s offers. Now Burger King has rolled out Cheetos Chicken Fries, and they’re available right here in the good old U.S.

The New York Public Library Is Getting a Book Train

The New York Public Library Is Getting a Book Train
You know what libraries need? Trains. Trains that can carry books from one part of the library to another. That way librarians can wear conductor hats and say, “all aboard!” and “choo choo!” while stamping books.

Watching Cars Get Smashed by a Huge Concrete Block Is Wonderfully Satisfying

Watching Cars Get Smashed by a Huge Concrete Block Is Wonderfully Satisfying
It’s no mystery what happens when you drop a huge concrete block onto a car. The car gets completely obliterated and smashed. It is one of those destructive things that is oddly satisfying and a guilty pleasure to watch.

Winter is Coming, Better Get These Dragon Scale Crochet Gloves
It’s that time of year again. Winter will be here soon and that means it is just about time to start wearing gloves. This pair of dragon scale gloves by Etsy artist Mareshop is way better than anything you own. The gloves are out of stock right now due to being completely badass and in demand, but Mareshop says they’re crocheting as fast as they can.

Voyager Golden Record Vinyl Box Set

Voyager Golden Record Vinyl Box Set
Space geeks are going to love this. Remember Carl Sagan’s message for extraterrestrials? Right now it is about 13 billion miles away from Earth aboard the Voyager I spacecraft. Hopefully some aliens (or the crew of the Enterprise) will find it soon.

Unicorn Poop Scarf Plush is Buttifull

Unicorn Poop Scarf Plush is Buttifull
Not too long ago I talked a bit about that zombie plush scarf that has bloody entrails to keep your neck warm. Now we have an ever weirder and cooler plush scarf to check out in the form of a stuffed unicorn.

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul
Well folks, we are yet one step closer to creating a real life Hector robot that will come and rip off your head and wear it while chasing your girlfriend around the building. The Ghost Robotics‘ Minitaur robot reminds me of a cross between a really weird, really excited cat, and that BigDog robot. Minitaur is much smaller than other quadrupeds and is cheaper to boot.

This Gigantic Clock is Made from Trucks

This Gigantic Clock is Made from Trucks
Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy. I mean time-voy. As you might imagine, to maximize profit, tractor trailers need to stay on the road for as long as possible. Time is money.

Ears-on Review: Focal Utopia Open-Back Headphones
If you’re a serious audiophile, nothing less than the best headphones will do. There are a handful of players at the very top end of the headphone market, and now French audio equipment maker Focal has joined the ranks with their ultra-premium Utopia headphones.

The Metallophon Is a Musical Instrument You Play with Bullets

The Metallophon Is a Musical Instrument You Play with Bullets
Vitaly Kryuchin is the head of the Russian Federation of Practical Shooting. Apparently, he also loves music, so naturally he combined both to create one strange musical instrument. Kryuchin built something he calls the Metallophon. It is basically made from different-sized sheets of metal, which each deliver a different tone when you strike them with a bullet.

Billionaire’s Son Buys Dog Eight iPhone 7’s
See this dog in the pic? That’s Wang Sicong’s dog Coco, and he’s now the proud owner of eight iPhone 7s. The phones were a gift from his master, which is crazy. A rich dog doesn’t need more than four iPhones.

If you have ever dreamed of battling Space Invaders in real life, here’s one unique way to do it. For GeekCon 2016, a team led by Tomer Daniel created a game of Space Invaders that can be played for real. There are some computers involved, but the gameplay itself all takes place in real life.

Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-lacing Sneakers: HELLLOOO McFly!

Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-lacing Sneakers: HELLLOOO McFly!
The DeLorean time machine was certainly the thing I wanted most from the Back to the Future movies. I would have also settled for that hoverboard McFly rode around on. I’m not really into footwear, but the thought of shoes that tied themselves and had lights on them was very appealing when I was a kid. Nike has a modernized version of McFly’s shoes coming out this year. 

McDonalds Japan Rolls out Pumpkin Chocolate Fries

McDonalds Japan Rolls out Pumpkin Chocolate Fries
Literally, the day September rolled around, I started to hear advertisements for pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that on the radio. I can only assume this means that on college campuses everywhere girls are now wearing vests, tights, and Ugg boots while they sip their mocha crappuccino pumpkin spice lattes.
