Remove All Cable Entanglements with Soba the Sliced Bread of Wiring

Post a Comment

Think back on the time spent trying to re-organize that tangled nest of wires from your home or office system, think of the failure, and get ready for the Soba’s revolutionary system for wiring cleanly.

Use Soba’s ortex tubing to easily tie, add, and subtract cables.

What is it exactly? Soba is a zippable sheaf used to hold your myriad wires for power supplies, your bevy of HDMI and other visual/audio cables (dare I say three-wire component) in a streamlined, sharp looking Vortex tube.

Haven’s Smarter Door Lock Puts the Deadbolt to Rest

1 Comment

The smart TV, the smartphone, the smart (or stupid) motion action X-box, the smart thermostat, and yes, even the smart deadbolt all pale in comparison to the Haven’s “smarter” door lock in terms of home safety.

haven-smart-door-lock

The perpetrator subtly popped the front door’s deadbolt with ease, and then he was in. The house and all of its domestic treasures, a vintage 1964 Godzilla action figure that guarded an Amazing Spiderman # 21 comic book encased in UV protective plastic, was ripe for the picking.

It seems that one of the other prevalent ways that a break-in occurs is with the simple kicking in of the door. Who knew?

Regardless of how smart the home security alarm or even deadbolt is, none of these systems can prevent the actually battering down of the building’s door.

Avantconcept’s AirBulb – Let There Be Light, and Sound, and Bluetooth

3 Comments

You know what I was thinking the other day? “Gee, I wish there was some way I could combine the endless joy of light bulbs with my deep-seated interest in alarm clocks.”

airbulb-music-lightbulb

A moment of honesty: I was joking about that last sentence. But Hong Kong based engineering team Avantconcept are dead serious about their AirBulb which – I kid you not – combines a standard LED light bulb with a speaker.

That’s right boys and girls, it’s a lightbulb with a speaker in it.

Feed Boba Fett To the Star Wars Sarlacc In Your Toilet

2 Comments

If you are feeling brave in your bathroom, then attempt to save Lando Carlissian from suffering the same fate as Boba Fett and falling prey to the infamous pit of Sarlacc In Your Toilet.

sarlacc-in-the-toilet

“Boba Fett, where?” Han Solo yelled in blind exasperation.

And with that Han accidentally bumps into Mr. Fett’s jetpack and pitches him into the oddly feminine pit. The galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter and badass dies – not by being cut into shreds by a raging Skywalker laser sword, but like a little bitch.

The desert monster opens its . . . self . . . and swallows Boba Fett with a satisfying burp for good measure.

Time to Ridicule Squirrels – They Had it Coming

Post a Comment

I bet you didn’t know squirrels mate twice a year, have sweat glands on their feet, and are highly intelligent rodents. No, you didn’t because people don’t like squirrels. Why would you? They are arrogant and pompous — it’s about time they were humbled.

horse-head-squirrel-feeder

Chew through the roof of my garage, dig holes in the yard, eat all of the seed out of the birdfeeder and then just sit and stare with that cold grey smug face? Look who’s laughing now.

This won’t be the typical longwinded article describing a bunch of cool specs and stats… it’s a horse head squirrel feeder. The squirrel puts its head in – looks like a horse – get it?

Does anyone know PETA’s stance on ridiculing animals?

Molten Aluminum + Ant Hill = Art

1 Comment

It’s an interesting day for nature based art and a terrible day to be an ant.

ant-hill-art-aluminum-sculpture

Anthillart uses the natural voided structure of an ant colony as a typical sand cast for a sculpture-creating, ant-murdering, liquid aluminum hell. After the molten metal hardens, ‘Art’ simply digs up the mold, hoses off the dirt, and scrubs off some ant legs to reveal the final product.

Once you get past the fact that this is the grownup version of torturing bugs with a magnifying glass, the intricate results are inspiring. It should be noted that Anthillart does prefer abandoned nests but, doesn’t seem all that picky. Don’t judge, you probably use pesticides in your own yard.

Take Your Dog Around The Block And Get Ready To Rumble

Post a Comment

If you ever wanted to combine the process of taking your dog out for a walk and the process of getting ready for 80’s movie style street fight, than the Tactical Dog Leash is for you.

tactical-dog-leash

The Tactical Dog Leash is the newest product by Alpha Innovations, an online retailer of that specializes in frightening self-defense products like the “Kubaton,” a baton like apparatus which is perfect for taking out an opponents knee caps. They also make the “Jaw Jacker,” which is essentially just a regular brass knuckle made of reinforced polymer that they suggest is for “novelty purposes” only.

This functional leash follows the same concept as the Jaw Jacker (see comparison photo below), but is much lighter and is attached to a classic blue or red strap so you can be on the ready each time you take Fido out for a walk in your rough and tumble neighborhood.
