Elvie Revolutionizes Breast Pumping With Cordless, Wearable Breast Pump

I don’t have kids. Neither am I a woman, but I do have sisters and cousins who do. From them being pregnant and subsequently giving birth, breast pumping is a necessary routine. Often, they have to excuse themselves to breast pump and if they were in nearby room, you can hear the whirling sound of the machine working hard. Them excusing themselves and the machine making a ding does not belong to this high-work world we live in. This is where British brand Elvie wants to make the difference. The company has developed Elvie Pump. Continue reading Elvie Revolutionizes Breast Pumping With Cordless, Wearable Breast Pump

Mass Shooting In School Is So Bad That Bulletproof Backpack Is A Thing Now

It is sad that we have to come to this. I am talking about escalating number of mass shooting incidents in school in the U.S. that resulted in concerned parents rushing to grab bulletproof backpacks for their kids. It is that bad. According to the FBI, of the mass shooting incidents between 2000 and 2013, nearly one-quarter happened in school or educational institution. While schools have taken steps to mitigate this situation, parents are rushing to grab bulletproof backpacks for their children in case anything of such nature were to happen (knock on wood!).

Blatant Copy Of LEGO Betrayal At Cloud City Is Already In The Market

Well, pretty damn fast, isn’t it? The recently announced LEGO 75222 Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City is not due to hit the shelves until September 13, 2018 but already, the most prolific LEGO counterfeiter Lepin has already put a copycat version up on sale on AliExpress. If you haven’t heard, a South Korean man was recently charged in court for possession and selling of fake LEGO sets made by Lepin. LEGO had the help of South Korean police who raided the home of this fake LEGO dealer.

LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

If you are NOT a huge fan of Batman, but adore his rides, then this adorable LEGO 76112 App-controlled Batmobile may appeal to you. I am not totally sold, though because, it is a tad too cute for my liking. I mean, the look is OK, but TBH, I can’t look at it without conjuring the image of Ryu Nakanishi’s armored amphibious tank, the G-5 Mecha, from the iconic Gatchaman anime. It has the same chubby form, but instead of tracks, this cute Batmobile had fat wheels. Continue reading LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

Finally, Iconic Scenes From Empire Strikes Back Gets Its Own LEGO Set

We all know this is coming. I am talking about a LEGO set based on one of the most iconic place and with it, the scenes, that happened in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (Twentieth Century Fox, 1980). Yes. It is the Cloud City. I am not going to lie, I was half expecting a Death Star kind of set with dollhouse-style play set and not just a level of Cloud City. Am I asking for too much? I think not. This place deserved to be the entire Cloud City. Continue reading Finally, Iconic Scenes From Empire Strikes Back Gets Its Own LEGO Set

In Thailand, Realistic-looking Giant Cockroach Plush Toy Is A Thing

Cockroach is not even remotely close to being adorable. In fact, it is one insect that is being frown upon by nearly all humans, but that does not stop one store in Thailand from selling plush toys of giant roaches that even has a rather endearing name, ‘Peter the Cockroach’, to boot. If the looks didn’t get you, perhaps the name will? Maybe? As you can see, Peter is very, very realistic. I’d say it is photo-realistic – short of being hyperrealistic – and it is anatomically correct too, complete with the requisite antenna (feelers?), spiky legs, wings and the works.

Startup Solved One Major Issue With Water Gun, Made It Very High Tech

The original Super Soaker pretty much reinvented water gun. It was considered the most advanced water gun of its time until it was usurped by swappable magazine variety and subsequently, the one that shoots water pellets, and now this: Spyra One. Billed as the next-generation water gun, Spyra One promised to deliver consistent pressure, right until the last drop. Speaking of last drop, Spyra One’s innovative design shoots not in spray, but it ejects “water bullets”, each containing 30 ml (1 fl oz.), without actual encapsulation like the Xploderz.
