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

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.


Chinese Voice Changing Telephone

I guess that’s the official U.S. product title, anyways, it’s a standard telephone that has voice changing capabilities built right in. There is no need to go buy a separate box to change your voice, and that way it’s harder for the police to figure out what’s going on when they raid your house.


OTTO Sound Amplifier

I’m fond of white noise, in fact, I’m quite dependent on it because silence bothers me. I feel a whole lot better about that fact now that I’ve seen the OTTO sound amplifier… I’m not the only one out there who feels this way.

I own a lot of stuff as I’m sure all of you do too. Having such a large amount of stuff can sometimes be a hassle when trying to remember exactly which items you do own and which you’ve yet to purchase. The Groqit personal inventory management system is a device that will solve this problem for you.


Lawnbott LB3200 New and Improved

You may recall the LB2000, a robot that will mow your lawn for you. Well, it’s been revamped and reintroduced as the LB3200 and has a new exciting feature.


Flying Stick Cam Looks as silly as it sounds

I’m reminded of a flying fairy doll my little sister had as a child every time I look at the Flying Stick Cam. The idea behind is moderately cool but the design falls completely flat, in my opinion.


EasiShelf gives you a shelf for your charging gadgets

The EasiShelf is a little dorky. I can imagine finding it in the colored plastic bins at a flea market or finding a baggie of them in my grandma’s cabinet. However, it is useful and I would like one.


Message Tape fakes digital messages

If you told me about an item from a store called SuckUK I’d think one of two things: you’re crazy or perverted. If you went on to tell me it was message tape it’d still be a toss up. However, message tape from SuckUK is pretty nifty once you get past all the names.


Gamercize PC lets you exercise at your desk

A lot of spend a lot of hours working at a desk and not so much exercising. We all know it’s important but we make excuses, most of which are that we don’t have the time. The Gamercize PC helps make time for exercise while you’re working at a computer/desk.


The Cup Noodles Timer

All of us have been at that point in life when we are stuck eating Ramen or Cup of Noodles. Whether in college or just when money is a bit tight, sometimes the need pops up for the slightly cheaper alternative. I still eat it as a snack from time to time, even though I’m not quite broke enough to be forced to live off of them.
