Plushie Octopus Baby Costume: Move Over, Baby Shark!
Seen here looking about as happy as I’d expect a child wearing a giant octopus costume to be – a baby models the Stuffed Octopus Toy Costume made by Musuos and available at Walmart. It probably goes without saying, but I just had the best idea for this year’s family Christmas card!

Tentacled Cocktail Glasses: Sipping Under the Sea
Looking for the perfect cocktail glasses to compliment your ocean-themed home bar? How about these octopus glasses from Cerahome?

Octopus + Purse = Octopurse

Octopus + Purse = Octopurse
With their big brains, eight tentacles, and lots of suckers, octopi are pretty amazing animals. But like most things with more than four legs, they can also look quite weird. If you think it would be cool to hang out with an octopus all the time, check out this crazy looking bag.

Octopus Chandeliers: 20,000 Leagues Under the Ceiling
I have a tendency to be pretty modern in terms of my design choices around the house, so traditional chandeliers aren’t really my cup of tea. However, I might make an exception if I could have a chandelier that looked like an octopus.

Chainmaille Octopus Hood: Eight Arms to Hold You
If Octopi had been on land during medieval times, this is what they would have looked like. That’s a scary thought. King Arthur would have been replaced by King Octo and the Knights of the Drowned Table.

Octopi are very intelligent creatures, and they want to be left alone. You try to get some footage of an octopus, and they will steal your camera because they don’t care about your silly YouTube channel. 

Octobot Is a Soft and Squirmy Robot

Octobot Is a Soft and Squirmy Robot
A team of researchers at Harvard have developed Octobot, what they claim is the first autonomous soft robot with no rigid components. That means it’s all soft and squishy (and creepy.) The octopus-shaped robot has a silicone body and uses a 50% hydrogen peroxide fuel that flows through a microfluidic circuit where it reacts with platinum.

Giant Octopus Kite Flies over Singapore

Giant Octopus Kite Flies over Singapore
Here’s something that’s truly amazing and hypnotizing to watch. Kite fanatic Erich Chew captured this footage of a massive octopus swimming through the air at the Marina Barrage in Singapore earlier this month. Either that, or it’s a drill from Cthulhu and his minions finally attack our reality.

Video Proves Why the Beach is a Terrible Place
I’m not a big fan of the Texas gulf coast, which is the closest beach to where I live. The water is not clear at all, which means Jaws could set upon you at any time with no warning.

Octodad Plushie: Just a Normal Guy

Octodad Plushie: Just a Normal Guy
I’ve always loved the notion of Octodad. The idea that an octopus could dress up in a three-piece suit and just carry on among humans as if nothing was out of the ordinary is pretty hilarious.
