On Amazon, You Can Buy This 40-Foot Shipping Container House For $36K

Amazon may be ousted as the biggest e-tailer in the world by Alibaba’s Taobao, but that does not mean what the Seattle-based online retailer giant peddles on its virtual storefront are anything less than eyebrow-raising. In addition to more mundane, run-of-the-mill stuff it sells alongside some super weird things you never knew you could buy online, apparently it now also sells shipping container house. Of course, shipping containers repurposed to serve a variety of other functions, such as construction site office, guard post, movable pools, and even homes aren’t new, but having it on sale on Amazon is something weirdly enough to be mentioned.

Mikiya Kobayashi’s Brass-infused Ping Pong Table Is Classy As F@*k

Not everyone fancy a less popular sport like Ping Pong, AKA table tennis, which naturally makes owning a ping pong table something of a connoisseur thing. But, but… not if the table tennis table is one from Masterwal called UA1, designed by 36-year-old Japanese designer Mikiya Kobayashi. Using a combination of brass, natural walnut wood and leather, and basing around simple lines, Kobayashi-san has created a ping pong table that is both minimalist and classy.

This Is Effie. It Will Dry And Iron Your Clothes For You In 3 Minutes

One of the most mundane tasks in life has got to be ironing. As if washing clothes aren’t bad enough, we have to put up with sucky weather that refuses to dry the clothes and after that, we have to iron them so we can look the best. That’s precisely I shy away from shirts. Any kind of shirt. However, for some, it is an inevitable chore. It is a must do. I feel sorry for them. But I am not that cruel to laugh at these folks. Instead, I want to introduce a new invention that could end this dreadful task for them. Even the drying part. Meet Effie. The robotic dryer and ironing machine. Invented by Rohan and Trevor who, you guessed it, have distaste for ironing. Continue reading This Is Effie. It Will Dry And Iron Your Clothes For You In 3 Minutes

Chewbacca Bean Bag Because, It Is Cool As Hoth And So Why Not?

Star Wars’ character Chewbacca is not lacking of fans who he would love to say “uughghhhgh huuguughghg huurh” to (which means “I love you all,” btw), but I am not 100 percent sure if Chewie would love the idea of his worshipers placing their bums on his head, or in this case, his mouth, as what this Star Wars Chewbacca Bean Bag from PBteen offers you to do. Yes. It is a bean bag, but it is not quite like any other bean bag on the galaxy, let alone this planet. It is made of modacrylic, acrylic, and polyester Sherpa for the ultra soft and plush feel.

Modulos Table Wants To Do What Project Ara Tried To Do With Phones

Table. The one furniture that almost always outgrown our needs. What happen when this happen is, we have to buy a new one. There are many reasons to why a simple piece of furniture, such as a table, becomes dated. It gets old and deteriorate in quality, it does not accommodate the new gadgets you own, or it won’t fit the new corner you want to move it to – just to name a few. While the rest of the world learn to live with this inevitable, a Croatian company, who call themselves Modulos Desk LLC, is determined not to. Their first product of the same name (i.e. Modulos) is a super customizable desk – thanks to modularity it is built upon.

MB&F’s Octopus-inspired Table Clock Is Really More Akin To A Robotic Spider

MB&F, AKA Maximilian Busser and Friends, has come a long way. It has progressed from making exotic watches to, in recent years, exquisite clocks that were pretty much out of this world. The Octopod is the luxury watch brand’s latest table clock that will leave sci-fi fans drooling all over. Assuming the form of a robotic octopus (hence, Octopod), the Octopod was a co-creation with L’Epée 1839 and features deep sea technology like the bathysphere (that’s a deep sea, spherical submersible, if you don’t already know) inspired by the late eighties sci-fi/horror flick, The Abyss (1989, 20th Century Fox) and it boasts no less than 468 fine-finished components behind the newly developed eight-day movement by L’Epée 1839 that makes it ticks. Impressive. Continue reading MB&F’s Octopus-inspired Table Clock Is Really More Akin To A Robotic Spider

The Nightmare Before Christmas Cuckoo Clock Is One For The Halloween

As if cuckoo clock itself isn’t spooky enough, the guys at Bradford Exchange has made it even more spookier with an iteration based on Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, yeah. What you have here is a Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas cuckoo clock, officially licensed, of course, and you know what I think? I think the marriage between the celebrated creepy animation and cuckoo clock is a match made in the deepest pit of hell. Which means, it made for the perfect addition to your Halloween decor. I see no other way of recreating a spookier atmosphere than having a clock playing back This is Halloween, accompanied by Zero, Jack’s faithful ghost dog, popping in and out of the doors atop of the Town Hall at every strike of the hour.
