you don’t need to be a firearm enthusiast to feel the need to decorate your home with Loaded Objects’ ceramic lamps styled in firearms, because they look so cool that you will forget that you are an anti-firearm lobbyist. no seriously. they looks too stylish to be ignored and besides, they makes a good conversational piece. Loaded Objects current work include single 9-mm pistol-style wall lamp (9mm Gun Sconces), AK-47-style standing lamp (AK-47 Stand Lamp), triple 9-mm pistol arrangement lamp (Tri-9mm Gun Lamp) and a non-lamp related Pawn Grenades chess set, which are up for grab as individual Pawn Grenade. all items made of ceramic by hand and are available for purchase through Loaded Object’s store on Etsy. prices ranging from $35 for a single Pawn Grenade (though, it would look nicer as a set) and runs up to $445 for the AK-47 Standing Lamp.

alternative alarm clock – alarm clock and electric outlet roll into one

Alternative Alarm Clock 544x408px
after viewing the video and reading the write up that Kihyun Kim has written, i am still not clear what the alternative alarm clock proposed to do. obviously, Kim’s concept is an alarm clock and electric outlet rolled into one. ok, i got that part. anyway, this is probably how it’s going to work out: suppose you are the morning coffee dude and Kim’s concept could do you some good if you hook up your coffee maker to it. as the alarm sounds off to wake you up, electric current is supplied to kick off the coffee making process (assuming you had all the prep work done the night before) and thus, when you finally managed to unglue yourself from the cosy bed, you will have a pipping hot pot of coffee waiting for you. it couldn’t get clearer then that. does it?

SureFire 6PX Tactical and 6PX Pro Flashlights | from US$95.00 | www.surefire.com

if not for the nature of light and the law of nature of day and night, we wouldn’t need a flashlight or any light for that matter. since we can’t change the nature, we embrace it by making simple things like flashlight a joy to use. sure, i was stumped by the Invictus price but then again, i probably don’t need such a high-end flashlight since i am not in an SWAT team. hence, the SureFire 6PX Tactical and Pro flashlights might be a good alternative. with a price tag starting from $95, it is still not cheap but is certainly way cheaper than the professional-grade Invictus.

Luke, i am your father and i am a hairdryer too!

Dart Hairdryer 544x408px
i confess. i was tired from a day’s running and thought of calling it a day, until i saw this shiny gadget. i am a Star Wars fan (note: just a fan, not a nerd or geek) and this hairdryer, dubbed the Dart Hairdryer, based on the evil sith’s mask has exerted its dark force on me, pulling me towards it and had me wanting one badly. unfortunately, this Darth Vader’s electronic mouthpiece hairdryer is all but a concept. it tickles me and leaves me dry. damn. if only this is a real product but then again, if it is, i am quite sure George Lucas would be running after designer Tembolat Gugkaev. next, we love to see a pair of shades or 3D glasses based on Vader’s mask.

we have seen our fair share of opulent throne, and there’s even one that’s was adorned with Swarovski Crystals but one that’s completely encrusted with these gorgeous crystals got to be the first. instead of just a handful crystals, this ultimate in bling bling throne is encrusted with 10,000 Swarovski Crystals. for three weeks, three employees from Let’s Crystal It spent 40 hours each week, painstakingly hand-set the gorgeous crystals onto the toilet bowl. in fact, it feels kind of rude to be terming it as a toilet bowl. with such a bling, it should be worthy to be called the throne.
