It can accommodate seven adults, features dual independent hydraulic brake systems, has Porsche engineered rack and pinion steering, an internal dynamo that powers two headlights, and it will set you back $20,000.
Handmade in Germany, this three wheeled abomination has been designed to encourage social interaction and facilitate team building during rolling meetings for big-name clients such as Cirque du Soleil and Google.
How do you decide who gets to drive? If you have any chance of me getting on this thing, I better at least get to drive. The problem is, that’s exactly what the other six people are thinking and you know Bill the overly enthusiastic project manager gets the only steering wheel every time – friggin Bill.

I’m in my mid-thirties and I still game, there I said it. Now that I have a kid I don’t have the pleasure of butt numbing 8 hour sessions but, when I do, I still get into it. I know that I look and sound like a crazy person wearing my headset yelling out what sounds like the bizarre one sided conversation of a war torn mad man (that special look in wife’s eye reminds me) but, at least I’m not wearing a helmet.
If you’re the kind of person that changes into military surplus fatigues as part of your Call of Duty ritual, the Comrad gaming helmet is the next logical step into full first person immersion.

Kickstarter, the same crowdfunding website that brought the world technology advancing 3d printers, smartwatches, and even virtual reality gaming has officially furthered mankind with the now successfully funded, adjustable men’s underwear by UFM.
What good are all the gadgets in the world if men can’t keep that thing dangling in their khakis from sticking to their legs long enough to play with them? I’m sure that is exactly what creator Eric Schifone asked himself when he sought out to create these patent-pending phallus tamers.
Did you know that men waste upwards of 20 minutes a day adjusting, tucking, and itching their gigglestick? That sounds totally believable even though I just made it up! If it were true, we could say that UMF’s adjustable pouch not only keeps you comfortable but it also saves the world money and increases productivity by keeping things from bouncing around, falling out, and chaffing ever again.

Everyone wants a doctor with experience but, when it comes to prostate exams, no one wants to be a practice dummy. Introducing Patrick, the virtual patient that takes clumsy rookie resident fingers so you don’t have to.
This embarrassingly compromised medical device is equipped with sensitive sensors that can measure where a person’s fingers are wandering inside of the unholiest of places and even measure how much pressure they are using to examine the very realistic goods.
I’m not sure practicing with Patrick truly prepares residents for the inevitable awkwardness, but the creators have also built a little small talk into the virtual patient’s software to make the real unpleasant experience easier for everyone when that day comes.
One of the development team members Dr. Benjamin Lok says the whole process reduces the high cost of training while still enabling the system to “provide a realistic encounter” to both prepare doctors and “reduce anxiety generating interactions.” Next time it happens to you (if it hasn’t, it will), take some comfort in knowing, it’s not exactly a picnic for the guy on the other end either.

It might be a little early to declare a winner for best Holiday gift of 2013, it’s probably still too early to even be talking about the Holidays but, you might want to keep this iPad Commode Caddy in your back pocket for when you inevitably run out of ideas.
We all know the first 90% of the search is the easy part, it’s that last 10% looking for the crazy uncle, close cousin, or maybe even a difficult spouse that keeps you anxiously lying awake at night.
If that special guy in your life enjoys bragging about how great he is at multitasking, loves his iPad, and has a good sense of humor, this iPad stand will bring a smile to anyone’s face and severe numbness to their legs for under $100 this Holiday season.
The perfect complement to a roll of Charmin, this chromed steel stand with flexible 10” gooseneck holder will allow you to place your iPad in portrait or landscape at a comfortable 32” from the floor. A little known fact, 32” from the floor in landscape mode is the optimal placement for streaming Netflix movies while sitting on the thrown and doing your bathroom business.
Buying yourself a present before Christmas is never a good idea but, if you happen to be one of those guys with a magazine stack of Sports Illustrated dating back to when Jordan and the Bulls three-peated, it might be a good idea to start recycling and replace that old basket with digital version of your favorite mag ASAP.
Summer is here and the warm weather ushers in the season for camping. For the most part, camping is generally a 1-4 person per tent adventure, but the introduction of the London Underground Tube Tent now makes camping easier and slightly more entertaining for larger groups.
As the name suggest, the London Underground Tube Tent is designed to look exactly like the Northern Line train cars in London, right down to the way that the doors open. Naturally this tent won’t actually move on its own but, it might feel like it is after a wild night of barbecuing and drinking.
