Britain is reportedly on alert for the wasp knife, a knife that can “deliver a ball of compressed gas capable of killing its victim at the press of a button.” A needle in the tip of the knife’s blade shoots out a little frozen gas ball which instantaneously grows to “the size of a basketball” and freezes the victim’s internal organs.

The Progressive International Microwavable S’Mores Maker is an unnecessary gadget that makes s’mores in the microwave for you, which I thought was a jolly headless robot.
It’s more of fauxbot (faux robot.) That is to say, it sort of appears to be robotic but in fact it just has bendy arms that a human has to manipulate, which is a huge letdown for those of us who dream of robots performing simple everyday tasks like making our daily s’mores.
