Fidget spinners have been done to death, so I was pretty sure I was never going to write about them again. But this gadget is just too silly not to mention. What you’re looking at is what is purportedly the world’s first cell phone that doubles as a fidget spinner.
The Chilli K188 is a very basic phone, but what makes it unique is its propeller blade shape and a spinny ball bearing mechanism in its middle.
Until now, the only things that were truly cheezy about the Star Wars universe were the prequels, especially Jar Jar Binks. But now you can have a Star Wars and cheese combo any time you desire, thanks to this fun stormtrooper cheese board set.
This cherry wood cheese board is laser engraved in the shape of a stormtrooper helmet, and when you remove the mask, you’ll find a Stilton knife, a Cheddar knife, a hard cheese knife and a cheese fork hiding underneath.
I think that’s it’s a much better idea to go with knives than laser blasters, since we all know that a stormtrooper can’t hit the broad side of a space freighter, let alone a block of gorgonzola.
Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice is still one of my favorite movies of all time. It featured a great mix of wacky characters, funny dialogue, clever stop-motion animation, quirky visuals, and lots of weird and creepy stuff too.
I like to think by the time we make it to the 23rd century, we won’t be using wall plugs, and all power will be completely wireless. But Trekkies living in today’s world must suffer through the act of connecting their electrical devices to a wall outlet.
I’ve got a pretty slick custom arcade cabinet in my man cave, but it really takes up quite a bit of space. Original arcade cabinets needed all of that room for a big CRT monitor, multiple circuit boards, and ventilation.
The smartphone era hasn’t been kind to Microsoft. From their clunky early Pocket PC-based devices, to the stillborn Microsoft Kin, to their too-little-too-late Windows Phone tie-up with Nokia, the company has tried and failed many times to stake a claim in a world dominated by Android and iOS.
Do you like puzzles? Well you won’t have any fun solving this one, because not only does this Rubik’s Cube come solved straight from the factory, it’s not really a puzzle at all. But there is one good thing about this version of the classic ’80s puzzler.
There are few things in this world that say “middle aged Dad” than a beer gut and a fanny pack. Now, thanks to one clever inventor, you can have both even if you don’t have the beer gut yet.
The DadBag is at once a ridiculous and clever idea.
Do you need to light up something you’re working on and need both hands free? Well sure, you could get a lantern, or maybe one of those lights you wear on your head, but I’d much rather have a robot hold the light for me.
Is your park’s basketball court busy all day? Or do you just not get to play until after work? As the days get shorter and with Daylight Savings Time coming to an end soon, night will be upon us earlier and earlier too.
Who doesn’t like waffles? I could eat my way out of a roomful of ’em. And what about role-playing games? Well of course, any good geek loves those. So why not combine both of these divine pursuits with a single purchase?
These days, all kinds of desktop playthings take advantage of magnetic levitation, from speakers, to gadget chargers, to clocks. Now, you can have your own personal hot air balloon that uses magnets, not hot air to float.
Despite numerous Star Wars films being released in the 3+ decades since its release, The Empire Strikes Back is still the best movie in the saga for many of us. Sure, The Force Awakens was very good, but it’s a tall hill to climb to best the 1980 classic.
While you could decorate your table with a bowl of fruit (real or fake), I like the idea of this shiny golden pop art banana lamp so much more. It looks so good that it just might attract monkeys into your place, and they could make a mess of the joint.
These banana lamps were designed by Belgium’s Studio Job and produced by Seletti.
Just in time for Force Friday (didn’t we just have May the Fourth?), LEGO has revealed a new assortment of 11 kits for fans of the Star Wars universe. The kits are all based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and include some brand new vehicle variants and characters – though they’ve been careful not to offer up much in the way of plot spoilers at this point.
