The Elbow Reinvents the Portable Cassette Player

The Elbow Reinvents the Portable Cassette Player
Somewhere in my basement, I have a box of old cassette tapes. Most of them aren’t store-bought ones, but custom made mixtapes that I created for myself, back in the days long before CD players, MP3s, and streaming media.

Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets

Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets
Operation was one of my favorite board games growing up – because it really wasn’t a board game at all, but an opportunity to play around with electricity and pretend to be a surgeon. So what could be better than combining this fun game than an edible version made from cake?

Flat-pack Star Trek Starship Kits Let You DIY Starfleet
If you’re a Star Trek fan, here’s something a little different for your collection. These kits from OzpinsFactory let you assemble your own starships from sheets of laser-cut birch plywood. These models are really nifty, and come in a variety of designs based on ships from the Trek universe.

RIZE Ferrofluid Display Mesmerizes with Magnetism

RIZE Ferrofluid Display Mesmerizes with Magnetism
Lava lamps are so 40 years ago. If you want a cool moving display for your desk, you’ll want to check out RIZE, a slick desktop plaything which uses the power of magnetic ferrofluid to create a neat, spinning design.

Stegosaurus Lamp: Pretty in Prehistoric Pink

Stegosaurus Lamp: Pretty in Prehistoric Pink
I have it on good authority that stegosauruses (or is it stegosauri?) were not green or brown as we originally thought. It’s a fact that they were entirely pink. I recently learned this while shopping on UK gift and gadget shop Firebox, so it’s definitely true.

Road Runner vs Wile E. Coyote LEGO Build: Beep Beep Zip Bang!

Road Runner vs Wile E. Coyote LEGO Build: Beep Beep Zip Bang!
Road Runner… The coyote’s after you… Road Runner, if he catches you, you’re through! Now you can’t get that theme song out of your head either. Maybe this awesome LEGO build will get your mind off of it.

People with Geeky Glass Sculptures Shouldn’t Throw Stones

People with Geeky Glass Sculptures Shouldn’t Throw Stones
I think glass is one of the most amazing art mediums out there. It’s really difficult and dangerous to work with, but in the right hands, it can create amazing, intricate forms. If you’re into collecting art glass, but want something a little different, then check out these sculptures I spotted over on Etsy.

Open Your Bottles with a Beetle

Open Your Bottles with a Beetle
I don’t know what it is about horned beetles, but I find them quite creepy. I think it must have been that scene from The Mummy where one crawled under the guy’s skin, or when thousands come crawling out of the ground in The Mummy Returns.

Literal Cigarette Lighter: Ready, Aim, Fire!

Literal Cigarette Lighter: Ready, Aim, Fire!
I don’t smoke, nor do I advocate filling your lungs with tar and nicotine. But if you must reach for a cigarette, let it be this one. This whimsical lighter is designed to look just like a cigarette, but you can use it to do healthier things like lighting candles, or starting a campfire.

Let’s Taco ‘Bout This Goofy Pool Float

Let’s Taco ‘Bout This Goofy Pool Float
For many of us, summer means heat and sweat. And there’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer day than a plunge in the pool. But if you’re going to float around in there, you might as well look like you’re having fun.

Funko x Fantastic Mr. Fox: For DIY Wes Anderson Animation

Funko x Fantastic Mr. Fox: For DIY Wes Anderson Animation
Fantastic Mr. Fox is still one of my favorite Wes Anderson movies, if not one of my favorite stop-motion animated films of all time. It was clever, hilarious, well-directed, and visually impressive. As a fan of the film, I’m not quite sure how I missed these neat collectible figures when they first came out.

Robot Smartphone Holder Comes in Piece(s)

Robot Smartphone Holder Comes in Piece(s)
There are a million and one smartphone stands on the market, but how many of them look like a robot? Not many, I’d venture to guess. But here’s a cool robot phone stand I found from the crazy gadget guys over at Hong Kong outfit Brando.

Jabba the Hutt Soap Doesn’t Smell as Gross as It Looks

Jabba the Hutt Soap Doesn’t Smell as Gross as It Looks
There are few more rank, nasty, and vile characters in the history of film than Jabba the Hutt. This disgusting fat worm of a creature took our princess hostage and subjected her to horrible humiliation, and kept a frozen Han Solo in his collection.

Skmei Ninja Watch Looks Like Something The Predator Would Tell Time with

Skmei Ninja Watch Looks Like Something The Predator Would Tell Time with
Remember that cryptic wristband that the Predator wore? You know, the one that he used to blow himself up with at the end of the first movie? Well if he wore a wristwatch, it might look something like this.

We Can Hardly Bear How Cute These Battery Packs Are

We Can Hardly Bear How Cute These Battery Packs Are
These days, we use our mobile gadgets so much that we invariably need to carry a battery pack just to make sure we don’t run out of juice halfway through the day. There are thousands upon thousands of battery packs on the market, so how do you know which one to buy?

The Dark Tower POP! Figures Have Moved On

The Dark Tower POP! Figures Have Moved On
Of all the stuff that Stephen King has written, his best work by far in my opinion is The Dark Tower. The way all of the characters are woven into the body of work is incredible, plus it’s got guns and stuff.
