The Sizzling Scooper is the brainchild of Matty Benedetto of Unnecessary Inventions. It’s an ice cream spoon with an integrated lighter beneath for melting hard ice cream before scooping. Is it practical? Probably not. Is it necessary?
If Back To The Future II taught us anything, it’s that the future will be filled with holograms. Of course, Back To The Future II was supposed to take place in 2015, and we haven’t realized even a small fraction of the technology it promised, but enough about my resentfulness; this is about the Proto Hologram “M,” a compact holographic display and media device made for home use.
Designed for use in workshops and garages by people who are all too familiar with their hands being covered in grease and/or fresh wounds, Vyper Shop Chairs are a high-end line of chairs designed with both comfort and functionality in mind.
Because dream it and you can achieve it, modder Michael Pick (aka the Casual Engineer) went and built himself a custom MacBook Mini, which he considers “the world’s smallest MacBook Pro.” It doesn’t actually run iOS, though, instead, it’s powered by a Raspberry Pi 4 running iRaspbian OS.
Because if you make it, somebody, somewhere, is going to buy it, VIVOUNITY has created the Phone Umbrella Suction Cup Stand (affiliate link), a device that acts as both a smartphone sunshade as well as a stand.
Because everyone has experienced the pain of stepping on a LEGO brick and cursing life itself, Matty Benedetto of Unnecessary Inventions has created the Suck It, a vacuum attachment that not only vacuums up the little plastic landmines but also sorts them based on size.
Been holding out on buying a resin 3D printer because all the available options just don’t look enough like an astronaut helmet for you? Well, it’s finally time to pull the trigger on that space blaster of yours, because the AstroFab Resin 3D printer is a dead-ringer for a traditional NASA-style astronaut helmet.
Because Star Trek is just as determined as Star Wars to have every product made available with their own theme, here is an officially licensed Klingon Bat’leth 6-in-1 multi-tool. The tool, available on Amazon (affiliate link), features a bottle opener, three different hex wrenches, a flat head screwdriver, a Phillips head screwdriver, a cord cutter, and a butterfly wrench.
Have trouble expressing your emotions? I’m with you; my couples counselor says it’s something I really need to work on. And here to help is the Qudi Mask, a full face mask consisting of translucent ski-style goggles with LED eye rings and a bottom portion with 199 smart LED lights for better expressing yourself.
Porch pirates: there are very few things worse, and if I caught one right now you better believe they’d be walking the plank straight into shark-infested waters. Here to help prevent porch plundering in the first place comes the Box Gobbler from MB Sentinel, an in-home package drop-off door that allows delivery drivers to place your packages in the safety of your home or garage instead of leaving them out in the wild.
Because gaming should be all-inclusive, inventor Akaki Kuumeri has created a snap-on attachment for Playstation 4 DualShock controllers that allow a player to operate all the peripheral’s buttons one-handed. The mod, which is constructed entirely from 3D printed pieces, even enables the use of the right thumbstick (typically for adjusting camera view) by moving the whole controller around a hinged pivot resting against your leg.
Because nothing says true love like setting things on fire together as a couple, this heart-shaped lighter from Draworld and available on Amazon (affiliate link) combines both a traditional butane lighter and electric coil lighter. Obviously, I’ll be using this lighter to ignite all the romantic candles around the bedroom this coming Valentine’s Day.
Filed under products I didn’t know I needed but am now questioning how I ever lived without, the BAGO keeps bags standing upright in your car while driving to help prevent spills or damage to their contents.
It’s important to keep your hands at peak performance for gaming sessions, otherwise, you might misclick and kill a teammate instead of an enemy. Trust me – it happens, and I’ve been kicked out my fair share of guilds and clans to prove it.
