These days, it’s important that we maintain our distance to prevent the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus. While the best thing you can do is just stay home, sometimes you have to go out to buy groceries or other essentials.
Between the coronavirus outbreak and the impact it’s having on lives and livelihoods, there’s a lot of stress in our world these days. While they’re not going to solve any big problems, stress balls can help you work out some of your tension.
Are you feeling lazy? Me too. As I write this, it’s 7:00am, and I should either still be in bed, or chilling on the couch, and not clicking away at my keyboard. Alas, the Internet never sleeps, and therefore I don’t get to either.
If you’ve ever visited Japan, you might have come across some tiny samurai swords being sold as souvenirs. It turns out that some of these are actually designed to be letter openers. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly reduced tourism throughout the country, so fewer people can get their hands on these tiny katanas.
When it comes to truly wireless headphones, the design of the charging case they come in is almost as important as the earbuds themselves. That said, it looks like accessory maker Razer has created the ultimate headphones for Pokémon fans.
When it comes to scary monsters from science fiction, Doctor Who’s Daleks rank high on the list. These soulless robotic aliens go around the universe, exterminating all those who stand in their way. So what better way to get people to stay inside of their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, then to bring a Dalek to their doorsteps?
Razer is best known for its bold and highly stylized computers and computer accessories. The vast majority of them are done up in black, with accents of neon green, and maybe some color-changing LEDs. But Razer also makes one product that stands out from the rest, and they’re pink headphones that look like cat ears.
Of the many things I’ve enjoyed in my life, LEGO bricks and belgian waffles are pretty high on the list. So I was pretty stoked when I saw this waffle maker that lets you combine these two passions of mine into one.
A few years back, we came across a pasta strainer inspired by the famed Flying Spaghetti Monster. Now you can turn any bowl of noodles into a pasta monster with this pair of serving utensils that look like a couple of googly alien eyeballs.
Despite some early worries, Japan has so far managed to keep the COVID-19 outbreak relatively well contained in their country. It certainly could spike, but I’m hopeful that their efforts to reduce social interaction, and to quarantine people with the virus have paid off.
Whether you have the heat cranked up during cold weather, or live in the desert or mountains, extremely dry air can be quite hard on your system. The best thing you can do besides gulping down buckets of water is to get yourself a good humidifier.
With all the craziness about COVID-19 going on, there’s been a major run on toilet paper. Now why everyone has made wiping their bottoms one of their top priorities during the virus pandemic, who knows? I’d think maybe food and water might take priority, but that’s just me.
With Easter coming up, it’s almost egg decorating time! A few years back, LEGO builder Jason Allemann aka JK Brickworks made his own version of Evil Mad Scientist’ Eggbot using the parts that are in the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit 31313.
One of the best parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Avengers has got to be Mark Ruffalo as Hulk. He’s my favorite actor in the role, and does a great job doing the whole Jekyll and Hyde routine as the bounces between mild-mannered doctor and angry green monster.
If there’s one thing Minecraft fans can rely on, it’s those green and block Creepers, and their ability to blow up at the most inopportune moments. Well, now you can keep a Creeper right on your desktop to keep an eye on it, and I’m pretty sure it won’t blow up the place.
If you are more aligned with the Dark Side than the Light Side of the force, I just found your new office chair. Just sit your butt on the Emperor’s Throne Armchair and you can watch space battle from your throne room, with your withered face and evil smile.
