Do you imagine a world where humans and dinosaurs live in peace and harmony? I love that idea, but the Jurassic Park movies have taught me not to get my hopes up too much for friendly raptors and and brontosauri roaming the streets anytime soon.
The only thing better than a good piece of sushi is one that comes delivered right to your face on a train, ready to eat. The sushi train is quite popular in Japan, but has also popped up in cities around the world in recent years.
If you’re into playing the electric guitar, you probably have a bunch of foot pedals on the floor, ready and waiting for you to add noise, wah-wah, echo, and other effects. But I bet you don’t have an effects pedal this cool.
Built by Sizzorfite Studios for Vinyl Ventures, this awesome foot pedal is built into a Batmobile.
The next time you want your “Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.” you may want to serve it in this awesome Star Trek Captain’s Tea Set. Who said that tea parties were just for little girls? You calling Jean-Luc a little girl?
Are you less than 12 inches tall? Or do you just like tinier than normal stuff? Well good news, everyone! The fine folks at Firebox have got you covered with their selection of teensy-tiny versions of objects.
Among the items are a miniature record player, microscope, vacuum cleaner, Etch-a-Sketch, a zen garden, leaf blower, dumbbells and more.
Do you like burritos? So do I. So it’s no wonder that this burrito-inspired blanket is making my mouth water. It looks just like the delicious, slightly charred dough from a flour tortilla, but human-sized. I’ve been to a place that sells burritos as big as your head, but never ones this big.
While you or your kids can fit inside of these, I don’t recommend trying to take a bite, nor do I suggest slathering the inside of the blanket (or your family members) with beans, rice, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo, and grilled meat.
A while back we found out that Funko was readying a new POP! figure based on the iconic Kool-Aid Man, but all we had was a terrible placeholder illustration of the character. Now, the actual figure is starting to turn up, and it looks awesome.
The rotund kids’ drink mascot is perfect in Funko POP!
Do you love to play foosball, but don’t have room in your house for a full-size table? Then check out this teensy version of the popular pub game that’s small enough to fit on a bookshelf or your desktop.
This handcrafted mini foosball table comes from Victoria, Canada’s miniLAND, and is spot-on accurate to the real deal.
Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me.
I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.
If you ever played any of the Crash Bandicoot games, you’re familiar with the masks that float around the game. The one that offers you help and makes that great “rutabaga” sound effect is called “Aku Aku,” while the bad guy boss is called “Uka Uka.”
Have you ever wondered why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters? Perhaps they’re not getting enough Vitamin C? Or is it that the lenses of their helmets distort their vision?
There have been lots of cool things going on to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 moon landing, but this might just be the coolest. Off-road vehicle maker Polaris Industries created a virtually perfect replica of the original NASA Lunar Rover Vehicle (LRV), which first appeared on the moon in 1971.
Polaris teamed up with the U.S.
I’m not sure what Cookie Monster did to deserve being skinned alive, but I’m guessing that he stole some chocolate chip cookies from these kids – and they were having none of that. Seriously, though, this Cookie Monster shag rug that turned up over on Instructables is awesome.
It was designed by contributor Mikeasaurus (who I think should change his middle name to “Rex”), and despite its sheer awesomeness, is very simple – it’s just a layer of blue shag costume fur, with a couple of balls of yarn with buttons attached for eyeballs.
Tardigrades are one of the strangest creatures known to exist. These microscopic organisms – also known lovingly as “water bears” are best known for their incredible ability to survive just about anything. Apparently, they can survive extreme temperatures, complete dehydration, and even the vacuum of space.
The dot-matrix printer may seem like a relic from the past, but just about every TV set, mobile device or laser printer still relies on creating images from a matrix of dots. They’re just smaller, and perhaps more colorful than the old Okidata Microline 320 from your youth.
