Dodecahedron Cat Litter Box: for Polyhedral Pooping

Dodecahedron Cat Litter Box: for Polyhedral Pooping
Litter boxes: they’re generally unattractive. Plus, they smell. That’s two strikes against them already. Looking to change that, the Pet Object Litter Box on Kickstarter is a cat litter box in the shape of a dodecahedron to compliment the rest of your tasteful geometric home decor.

Already available as a 1,023-piece, $140 set, LEGO has just announced an Ultimate Collector’s Series version of The Mandalorian’s Razor Crest ship, with 6,187 pieces and a price tag of $600. Ultimate Collector indeed – you’d have to be to shell out six big bills for a LEGO set.

7-Eleven Crocs: Convenience Store Colab
Multi-national convenience store giant 7-Eleven has teamed up with Crocs to produce a line of branded footwear sporting the store’s iconic (but not necessarily tasteful) orange, red, and green logo colors. Those…wow, those are really something.

Pure genius Instructables user mikeasaurus has created step-by-step instructions detailing how to create a Baby Flask, a doll baby in a chest-mounted baby carrier you can fill with booze. A lot of booze too. Goodbye, hip flask, hello, Baby Flask!

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine
Because almost every mode of transportation is improved with more horsepower, inventor and YouTuber Joel Creates replaced the pathetically underpowered 12-volt motors of a children’s Star Wars Landspeeder toy with a small jet engine. And, I think I speak for every speed-lover here when I say, where was this when I was a kid?

Barbie and Ken Doll in Boxes Couples’ Halloween Costume

Barbie and Ken Doll in Boxes Couples’ Halloween Costume
With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming Barbie movie (no? Just me?), it only makes sense someone would cash in on the craze with a Barbie and Ken couples’ Halloween costume. Officially licensed by Rasta Imposta and available on Amazon (affiliate link), the costume includes two giant doll toy boxes for your and your significant other (or a friend) to get inside and become the iconic couple.

James Webb Telescope Model Suggested on LEGO Ideas Website

James Webb Telescope Model Suggested on LEGO Ideas Website
Built by astronomer and LEGO maniac tonysmyuncle (that’s cool, Brent’s my uncle), this LEGO model of the James Webb Space Telescope is constructed as a replica of the one actually sent into space by NASA. It’s currently looking for support on the LEGO Ideas website to be considered for production by LEGO; it’s appropriately scaled to the size of minifigs, who I assume will use it to search for UFOs.

Harry Potter Wands That Shoot Actual Fireballs: Incendio!

Harry Potter Wands That Shoot Actual Fireballs: Incendio!
Because housefires aren’t going to just start themselves, manufacturer Wejioin is selling these Harry Potter inspired (but by no means officially licensed) wands on Amazon (affiliate link) that actually shoot fireballs. To operate one, you just pack a small piece of flash paper in the business end of the wand, then push the button at its base to heat the coil inside, igniting the flash paper and causing it to shoot from the end like a fireball.

Arcade Machine Coin Slots Gashapon Toys: Insert Coin to Play Anything
Modeled after the coin gobbling slots of vintage arcade machines, this Japanese gashapon (plastic toy capsule) series from Tama-Kyu features life-size realistic coin slots. They’re perfect for providing a constant reminder of just how many quarters you’ve pumped into machines over the years.

Student Develops Dissolving Ramen Noodle Packaging to Reduce Plastic Waste

Student Develops Dissolving Ramen Noodle Packaging to Reduce Plastic Waste
London-based Ravensbourne University student Holly Grounds has developed ramen noodle packaging that dissolves in hot water in order to help cut down on plastic waste. That’s a great idea! Also, I wonder if her parents had any idea they were *this close* to naming their daughter Holy Grounds.

SNB2: Sticky Note Bot 2, A Modular Desktop Organization Robot

SNB2: Sticky Note Bot 2, A Modular Desktop Organization Robot
Designed and sold by 3D printing shop Thin-Air 3D, the Sticky Note Bot 2 (SNB2 for short) is a modular desktop organizer in the stylish form factor of a little robot. Now, if only it could do some of my actual work for me instead of just sitting there holding paper and pencils.

The Entropy Chair Looks Entirely Chaotic

The Entropy Chair Looks Entirely Chaotic
Presumably inspired by the tangle of cords under my desk, the Entropy Chair created by Phillips’ Collection doesn’t look like a chair at all, just a cube of randomly strung wires. Those wires have actually been carefully placed to create a seat.

The MelGeek Pixel, A LEGO-Compatible Computer Keyboard

The MelGeek Pixel, A LEGO-Compatible Computer Keyboard
The MelGeek Pixel, at least according to the company that makes it, is the world’s first LEGO-compatible keyboard. And I’m inclined to believe them. Mainly because who would have thought to make a LEGO-compatible keyboard? I don’t want painful stud imprints on my hands and arms all day; I’m trying to type here.

Michael Myers Car Sunshade: One Deadly Driver

Michael Myers Car Sunshade: One Deadly Driver
Michael Myers: hands down one of the most iconic and best slasher film antagonists of all time. And what better way to let others know you’re deep in the Halloween spirit than with this Michael Myers car sunshade?
