Who doesn’t love Shiba Inu dogs? We have a couple of them living next door to us, and they’re the cutest. And then there’s the Doge internet meme, along with the DogeCoin cryptocurrency which it inspired.
Currently on display at the Nina Mall in Hong Kong, China, what you’re about to witness is the construction of the Guinness World Record holder for the largest Rubik’s Cube, measuring a very respectable 2.503 m x 2.505 m x 2.502 m – or about 27 square feet.
The great outdoors: it comes with a lot of bugs. And what if you don’t like those bugs? Enter the WalkingPod Mesh personal anti-insect tent, a wearable fine-gauge mesh tent that prevents pesky bugs from getting too close.
Sandwiches: what would I do without them? Probably starve, or at least go hungry for lunch. Well, now mechanical engineer Yuto Kuroki of Meiji University in Tokyo has made the entire sandwich-making process easier, thanks to a 3D printer that’s been modded into a 3-axis robotic manipulator.
Because it was inevitable we reach the pinnacle of human achievement at some point, researcher Marc Teyssier has developed the Eyecam, a webcam that resembles a moving, blinking human eyeball. One thing’s for certain: it’s going to be nearly impossible to look away from the camera during Zoom meetings now.
Remember making pillow forts as a kid? Those were the days, weren’t they? The only thing missing? Magnus, the magnetic play couch. It can be assembled as a children’s sofa or disassembled and built into various fort configurations using its integrated magnet system.
Stressed out? I think we all are these days. You need an outlet for that stress, or it will eat you up like the shark in Jaws. Enter these anti-stress Push Pop Pads, a stress-reliever and fidget toy for people like me who recognize they’re entirely too uncoordinated to operate a fidget spinner.

The brainchild of maker Greg Daville, this is an LED icosahedron crafted using a total of 2,400 LEDs, all placed individually by hand. Wow! I’m not sure if I would have had the patience for that, but I definitely don’t have the know-how to build an LED D20.
Volkswagen messed with people earlier this week by trying to convince us that they had changed their name to “Voltswagen.” It turned out to be an April Fools joke in the end, but it definitely ruffled some feathers because they made the announcement on March 30, which convinced journalists that it was actual news.
Tacos: you need something to hold them upright so none of those delicious ingredients spill out. Enter the $15 TacoCat taco holder (affiliate link), an upside-down cat that prevents your taco from falling apart while at rest.
Fingers: after a long day of typing they just want to let loose. And what better way to let your digits go wild for a bit than with some rhythm-based finger dancing with this $43 Finger Dance Machine available from Firebox?
Because there’s a market for absolutely everything, this is a good luck Maneki-neko (“beckoning cat”) statue with a giant muscle arm. Obviously, if the luck it brings is directly proportional to the protein shakes the cat has had, you’re in for a metric ton of good luck.
