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.

13 Year-Old Built A Tiny House, Makes Me Question My Childhood

While most kids of ages 12-13 were out hurling themselves into the creek or hole up in their home with video games and stuff like that, little Luke Thill spent his summer building a tiny house in his backyard. And he was 12 when he started the project. Luke has build very admirable, beautiful tiny house right in his home’s backyard. The idea came about when Luke became bored last summer and wanted something to do. The the light bulb moment struck after watching a bunch of videos on tiny houses on YouTube. At this point, I am feeling ashamed of myself. At that age, I was all over pop music, pixelated video games (Microsoft Decathlon PC game, anyone? LoL) and printing limited color ‘banner’ from Dot Matrix printer. Man. What was I thinking!? Continue reading 13 Year-Old Built A Tiny House, Makes Me Question My Childhood

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

Artist Tom Galle Turns Recognizable Corporate Logos Into Weapons

NYC-based Internet artist/digital creative Tom Galle has recently started a new project which we are pretty confident it is going to catch on with the Internet. Entitled “Corp Gear,” this new project is a collection of weapons fashioned out of corporate logos. As you can see from the images, Galle has done a brilliant job in turning iconic corporate logos that we are familiar with into weapons. The collection, which only started earlier this month, so far saw Galle turning Nike very recognizable Swoosh logo into a blade (‘Nike Knife’), McDonald’s iconic Golden Arches into a brass knuckleduster (‘McDonalds Brass Knuckles’), Facebook’s blue ‘F’ branding into a crowbar (‘Facebook Crowbar’), and Mercedes-Benz’s pointed star into Shuriken, AKA ninja star (‘Mercedes Ninja Star’).

The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

We have heard Volkswagen is rebooting the iconic VW Bus and if I ask me, I’d say the news come as both yay and nay. Yay because the microbus is coming back and nay because it will never be as cool as the iconic ride (cue The Doors’ Light My Fire). I guess somethings are best left in the era where it belongs. However emotionally tied we are to certain objects, we have to move on somehow. But moving on does not mean ditching your love for this cult phenomena vehicle entirely. You can actually still own it, but this time, it has to go into your kitchen because, the familiar lines now exist as a fridge. Yes. That’s a VW Bus refrigerator that we are talking about! Holy sh… Continue reading The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

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.
