Sonic Nausea gadget makes people queasy

Sonic Nausea gadget makes people queasy

Pardon my ignorance, but I'm just not seeing the practical purpose of this gizmo. The Sonic Nausea device is an electronic gadget that can actually make people around it feel sick to their stomachs out of the blue.

The device is meant to be placed in a specific location and then it will send out high-frequency signals of all sorts, which can apparently make people that get within range feel nauseous. All of the varied soundwaves this thing outputs makes it difficult for a person to process directional source information, resulting in sweating, nausea, vomiting, headaches and irritability. Well, that's just lovely. I mean, is it supposed to be a gag (pardon the pun) device, or what?

We're thinking crowd control or something like that. Perhaps a Tazer alternative? Regardless of this thing's purpose, the Sonic Nausea device will cost $29 and runs on a single 9-volt battery.

Garden Zombie protects your flowers from small children

When you walk by most peoples' gardens, you'll see some kind of cute statue, maybe of a gnome, or a deer. Those are nice and all, but what if you want something a little bit scary for your garden? I don't know about you, but I love this Garden Zombie.

Camouflage for your satellite dish

Camouflage for your satellite dish

It's been a little while since I had a satellite dish last, but I remember all too well how grand it looked mounted to the front of the house I was renting. It was a tiny house too, so even being a small satellite dish it seemed to eat the entire front of the place.

Glowing Doorknob grips are cheap, slightly pointless

Glowing Doorknob grips are cheap, slightly pointless

This is officially the doorknob that will end all of those strange black eyes. No longer will women be running into doors and achieving black eyes. Alright so domestic abuse might not be all that funny, but I've always found that excuse incredibly comical. Me being one of the clumsiest people I know, if I can't manage to get huge facial bruises from doors, then no one can.

The hangman table lamp

The hangman table lamp

I have over time gotten a bit bored of my bedside lamp. Yes, it shines on my nightly read, but it's just so normal. It doesn't move, do tricks or even have a geeky flare. However, I think my search is over, this hang man is perfect for my bedroom.

Yes, it might creep out anyone who spots it, especially in the bedroom, but it's just too morbidly fascinating to pass up. The table lamp called Colgao was handmade by en Pieza! studio.

The materials used were electric wire and iron which was treated to prevent corrosion. It was created sometime in 2007 but the site does not state how to get a hold of the product or when it might be released.

Poseidon Mk IV Discovery – dive system recycles O2

Using a Lithium-ion battery, some CO2 scrubbers and oxygen cells they are able to extend the amount of time you are able to spend under the water. No word on how long you can stay underwater as that’s got to be at least partly depending on the size of battery and size of your air tanks and how you breathe, but sometimes even just a half hour is enough to see the fish you went down looking for in the first place.
