When you think of donuts (or doughnuts for the old schoolers), you probably think of coffee (thanks, Dunkin’ Donuts!). That said, donuts and coffee seems like the de facto combo recognized by today’s homo sapiens, but if having an afternoon donut with a shot whiskey is your thing, well, then you are in luck cos’ one doughnut confectionary shop in Denver, called Habit Doughnut Dispensary, has just the kind of donut that will make you salivate. The outfit is serving what it calls Doughnuts Under-The-Influence, which is basically doughnut with a shot of liquor inside. Continue reading Move Over Coffee Cos’ Donut Has A New Worthy Companion: Whiskey
A contraption that feeds on paper and spits out paper plane is not new, but one that does the same using only LEGO elements, now that’s news. Granted that this particular work of art coming from Arrow Electronics is not news. It was posted on Arrow’s YouTube channel a little over a year ago, but hey, like I always say, if you haven’t heard of it, it is news. Am I right? Anywho, if you have seen it, I am sure you are beyond awe to be bother by its age, and if you hadn’t, well, enjoy this wonder LEGO creation conjured up by designer Arther Sacek. Continue reading Watch: LEGO Paper Plane Launcher Folds And Launches A Paper Plane
What you see here is a RC Batmobile from toy maker Mattel. So what’s with this RC toy that gets us so stoked? Well, first and foremost, it is an exact replica of the Batmobile that will appear in the upcoming DC Comics’ Justice League movie. As you can see, Bruce’s crimefighting automobile gets some serious boost in firepower with an over the top look for good measure. Hey, we are not complaining cos’ it’s Batfleck. But being a replica of the movie’s car is just half of the story. The other half being, it has a real exhaust that, you know, spews out white smoke (harmless smoke, Mattel assures) and a dashcam of sort so you can drive this badass ride with your smartphone as what Batman would sees. Continue reading Justice League RC Batmobile Spews Real Exhaust, Offers FPV Driving
If there’s one thing about the good’ol Transformers, i.e. the 80s cartoon variety, which boggles my mind is how the heck the huge-ass Decepticon, the equivalent of Autobot’s Metroplex, Trypticon, is not a human-like robot but a dinosaur (specifically, a T-rex)? This question lingered in my mind for quite sometime and gradually took a backseat until recent when we heard Hasbro has announced a new version of the good’ol classic Trypticon and man, does it look awesome. I’d be lying if I say I weren’t stoked. Targeted to be released this Fall, this $149.99 Decepticon monstrosity is not nearly as enormous as the Metroplex (that thing stands 2 feet tall!), coming in at 20 inches tall and 9 inches wide in Dino mode, and 36 inches across, 30 inches long, and 16 inches tall as a city. Continue reading New Hasbro Transformers Decepticon City Action Figure Is 20 Inches Huge!
If you scuba dive, you will probably understand the pain trying to put on the flippers after you have fully geared up. I mean, slipping on the flippers isn’t that hard; it’s those gears on you that hinders the process – more so, if the boat is tiny, but not for long, cos’ an Italy startup has came up with a brilliant solution that will make donning and doffing of fins a walk in the park. Called Finclip, this solely mechanical device is designed to be retrofitted to your flippers and once fitted, all you have to do is to slip in and step down, and voila, the flipper is secured to your foot. Just think ski bindings and it will give you an idea how awesome this is. Continue reading This Ski Bindings-like Device Lets You Wear Your Diving Flippers Handsfree
I would like to think the trend of not tucking in shirt stems from the fact that it gets untucked as easily as it was tucked, and as every men will agree, that is a hell of an annoyance. But what if you really need to tuck it in, like with formal attires? Well, wear a inverted garter belt then. Don’t laugh. I am serious because that’s what the NV S-Holder essentially is. It comes in a set of two, one for each leg, and it works pretty much like the garter belts wore by women in the 50s/60s to hold up their stockings. However, unlike the women’s undergarment accessory which basically pull up the stockings, NS S-Holder keeps the shirt pulled down thus preventing it from being untucked. Continue reading This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked
The world as it is, is facing a shit load of threats. Socially, the general population is frowning upon the prospect of robots taking over their livelihood and if that’s true, could this real-world fate apply to the world of comic? You know, such as for example, superheroes being replaced by robots? Well, that’s exactly the topic picked up by collectible figure maker ThreeAA, entitled Steel Age. Following the first robo-Batman, which apparently has yet to be shipped, is another cape crusader, dubbed Arctic Batman. Arctic Batman, as the name implies, is a robotic Batman armed for arctic operations and hence the off-white getup that feels rather steampunk-ish. Continue reading 1/6th Scale Robotic Batman In Off-White Is Kind Of Steampunk-ish
Snapback hat. It is either you are for or against it. Personally, I am not for snapbacks. Seriously, that crummy, plastic thingy is super ugly and that’s not to mention, it is totally uncomfy when you wear the hat backwards. Amazingly, despite the obvious shortfall, snapback hat’s design hasn’t changed much at all for like, forever. Even some expensive designer labels used cheap plastic for the snapback, which is kind of a reap off considering how much designer hats cost. But thanks to the righteousness in humanity, someone stood up and decided that enough is enough, and it is time for a change. And that change is known as Snappies Hats (or just Snappies). Continue reading Snappies Ditched Plastic For Leather, Made Snapback Hats Look Uber Classy
Remember the folks who kind of make carbon fiber mainstream on acoustic guitars and from there on, make traveling with a guitar less of a stress? Yes. We referring to KLOS Guitars. The guitar that’s built to stand up to the punishment of traveling without weighing you down while still performs like it should – like a full-size guitar which it is, btw, except that it has a more compact than usual body for ease of carrying around. It has got rave reviews all over and today, they are back with another carbon fiber six-string instrument that’s not only equally travel-friendly, but louder. Continue reading KLOS Super Durable Carbon Fiber Travel Guitar Gets Electrified!
What was meant to be a celebration of love and a month of romance has evolved into an obvious consumerism that businesses are quick to cash in on. But not all businesses actively cash on Valentine’s Day. Fast food restaurants for one, remain rather nonchalant about this ‘big event’ for lovers until of late when KFC New Zealand dished out KFC bouquets, and candlelight dinner over at White Castle and Waffle House. As it turns out, those weren’t the last of it. Burger King Israel also pulled off something rather unusual for this year’s day of romance. In response to how kids have ‘Kid’s Meal’, Burger King Israel came up with a novel idea of an Adults Meal just for this day. Continue reading Burger King Valentine’s Day Adults Meal Comes With, Well, An Adult Toy
