You know the Terminator franchise has officially jumped the shark when 1) Terminator: Salvation can get trounced at the box office by a Ben Stiller movie and 2) they start making bobble-head versions of the deadly T-600.
My goodness. I’m trying to postpone making another edition of Why? Why not?, because my nose is still bleeding a bit from last time. But the internet is merciless, relentless; it just keeps on giving. Do you have your Advil ready?
Ever wondered if there was a way to turn any surface into a trampoline? Me neither. But there is an answer to that non-existent question that doesn’t involve taking illegal substances: wear Air-Trekkers. They’re 3-foot long jumping stilts with an aluminum frame & carbon-fiber springs.
This lamp makes me want to do another edition of “Why? Why not?”, but I’m too tired to be bewildered today so I’ll let you guys be the judge.
The yolk-light is also the switch; press it to turn the light on/off.
If this lamp concept from designer John Nouanesing is ever turned into a real product, it’ll be one of those things that’ll amuse you for a day or two. Afterwards it’ll just be a conversational piece, something to show your date while you figure out what to say – or do – next.
Welcome to the latest edition of Why? Why not?, where we look at concepts and creations that exist for no real reason. Yes folks, I’m talking about products of democracy, of free will, and most of all of too much free time.
If you’re on a diet, Kitsch’N’Fun’s talking fridge guard can be your conscience: record a message in the can – like “I sure hope you’re just getting water” or “Hey Hurley. Stop eating!” – and then leave the can inside your fridge.
If the Mac Mini’s 5 USB ports are still somehow not enough for your needs (and you don’t have one of these), then get one of these bad boys.
As you can see, you can connect this multi-ported monstrosity to 2 computers, but they can only access the hub one at a time.
Brando, producer of gadgets that are mostly devoid of sense, is at it again with their latest flash drive, the “jewel bug necklace flash drive.”
Look at all the shiny plastic. Brando is kind enough to include a chain so that you can make a necklace with the bug as its pendant, although why anyone would do so is beyond me.
I believe this is what people call “pure win”:
It took Flickr user Kaptain Kobold just a couple of minutes to whip up his LEGO masterpiece, and now it has given him Internet Fame. You know the next step Kaptain: merch merch merch.
Do you have friends who constantly brag about imaginary achievements? Are you tired of salesmen harassing you at the mall with their 5 minutes a day = 6 pack! exercise machines? Is your kid always making up excuses for failing — let’s not go there.
Panasonic demoed their own robot floor cleaner at the Tokyo Fiber Senseware exhibition in Milan. It’s called the “fukitorimushi” (wipe-up bug), although if you ask me “Creepy Pillow” would be a better name for it. The high-tech pillow cleaner detects dust and dirt using “blue-white light” and then cleans ’em up using a cutting-edge nanocloth developed by Teijin Ltd.
This week’s words of wisdom come from five English women with somewhat talented songwriters: Too much of something is bad enough (bad eno~ugh). Alas, such is the case with the Lingo, a wireless mouse from Japanese company TEC.
