Smoon Ombrella Lamp Looks Like a Flying Saucer Overhead
This funky modern lighting fixture might be named for its umbrella-like shape, but to me it looks like some sort of alien jellyfish is about land its spacecraft in your living room.

Phones That Look Like Food Don’T Seem So Delicious
I had no idea you could get custom phones to look like food products, but I’m here to tell you that you can, and they’re… um… unique. It all started when I saw this phone that looked like a sandwich, or rather, that looked like a phone horribly smooshed into a sandwich.

Man Purse Deters Criminals (and Draws Cops)

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a very good golfer. If you take par, then multiply it by a factor of 1.5x, that’s about what I usually hit. So I guess I was pretty pleased to see that this little robotic golfer doesn’t play any better than I do.

‘Wasp Knife’ Will Stab Your Victims Then Freeze Their Organs
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.

Cheese Wheel PC Doesn’t Come With a Mouse [Casemod]
I’ve seen some offbeat casemods in my travels, but I haven’t seen one quite this odd in a while. Apparently, some guy from Holland came across this cheese display prop and said to himself, “I’ve always wanted a PC that looked like a wheel of cheese”.
