Would You Trust This Robot to Stick a COVID-19 Test Swab Up Your Nose?

Burger Socks: Hold the Pickle, Hold the Lettuce Between Your Toes
Hungry? How about a delicious, juicy cheeseburger? That sounds yummy to me. What if I told you somebody’s stinky feet had been touching your sandwich? You’d have second thoughts about cramming it into your mouth for sure.

From our smartphones to our laptops to our cars to our kitchen appliances, touchscreens have turned up just about everywhere. But touchscreens are generally limited to flat, squared-off surfaces.

This SNES Is Now a Nintendo Switch Dock
The Nintendo Switch and its docking station are pretty good looking the way they come from the factory. But that hasn’t stopped people from wanting to customize their game systems to their own liking. If you’re into the look of classic Nintendo game systems, then you might want to build a Switch dock like this one, which a modder built into the case of an old Super Nintendo console.

Don’t Try Drinking This Fake Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Push Pins
It’s like 90ºF and 80% humidity here in Chicago this week, so the idea of sipping a hot beverage doesn’t have much appeal to me at the moment. But when the weather inevitably cools off, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a nice cup of hot cocoa, along with a bunch of mini marshmallows floating on top.

Looking for a unique piece of furniture for your living room or game room? Well, skip the IKEA and go for something a bit more geeky, I say. This cool coffee table has LEDs built into its top which can display a colorful light show, or even play simple video games.

Rubik’s Tactile Cube Puzzle Lets Blind People Join in the Frustration
As much fun as it is to play with a Rubik’s Cube, it can also be quite frustrating if you don’t know the proper algorithms to use to solve it. There are countless videos and reference materials which show you how to solve the puzzle, though they assume that you can actually see the colors.

Thomy Rot-Weiß Is Ketchup and Mayonnaise Packaged Like Toothpaste
Ketchup, mustard, mayo, teriyaki, bbq sauce, sriracha… Let’s face it, I’m a big condiment fan. While I don’t always mix my condiments, some combinations work better than others. Ketchup and mayo generally work well together – especially on a cheeseburger – and actually are pretty good on french fries too.

Take a Noodle Bath and Swim with Some Ramen
Don’t you just love ramen noodles? Well, now you can enjoy some instant ramen every time you take a bath. I’m not talking about nuking a package of Nissin or Maruchan and taking them into the tub with you (though you could do that.)

That Time Someone Sang Eminem’s “Without Me” in Klingon
The internet is a strange and wonderful place. The nature of its persistent storage means that you sometimes discover things within 10 seconds of them going live, and other times 10 years after they’re posted. This is definitely one of those 10+ year situations, but it’s too good not to share.

You Can Make a Face Bookshelf Like This One
Despite the amount of content I consume via digital screens, I still like to dust off the occasional paperback when I’m feeling the need for something more tactile. While I store my books in an an ordinary IKEA bookshelf, I’d much rather have one of these shelves that looks like a giant face.

BTTF Time Machine Bass Guitar: Bass to the Future
In Back to the Future, Marty loved to play the guitar. I’m thinking if he ever asked Doc Brown to make him a musical instrument, it might have looked like this. Sure, he’d have to learn to play the bass, but I’m sure he’d be fine with that.
