Game Boy Alarm Clock Wakes You Up To The Tune Of Super Mario Land In 8-bit

In this smartphone age, there is hardly the need for a clock. Personally, I don’t even wear anything on the wrist if not for the fitness tracker I am committed to use to track my lazy ass. But somewhere, somehow, somebody managed to come out with certain clocks that make certain people unable to say no to a clock. The Game Boy Alarm Clock is just one of those clocks and its target market? Consumers like me who grew up with Game Boy and to a larger extend, Nintendo. At this point, we probably don’t see the need to even tell you what it is. Continue reading Game Boy Alarm Clock Wakes You Up To The Tune Of Super Mario Land In 8-bit

Giant Image Of Your Face On A Suitcase Cover Ensures No One Messes With It

How many of you here use a suitcase cover? From my little travel experience, I’d say not a lot. I do, in case you are wondering, because it not only helps to protect my precious luggage from nasty scratches, but also make it more recognizable when it rolls out on the luggage belt. Granted, my suitcase covers are from Samonite and American Tourister, which means, just about anyone could be using the same stuff and thus, there is a slight chance that it will be hard to identify right away. So far, I have yet to come across the exact same cover, but if you want to be sure, then a new suitcase cover called Head Case will be the failsafe solution.

It is has been proven (kind of) that men are better at the BBQ pit. You know. Flipping patty and stuff and so it is only logical for any man who love doing that to equipped to the occasion like donning a tactical apron and perhaps, flipping the meat patty with a, what? Machete? Or maybe not. Perhaps, a spatula style like machete like the Machete Spatula from Slam Design is more appropriate. Seriously, you are dealing with slabs of meat which probably does not involve hacking of coconuts and I am sure your regular gardener will be able to handle those overgrown bushes too. This Machete Spatula makes presiding over the barbie looks a little more ‘brutal’ and some say, macho. Whatever it is, it is bound to impress (or strike fear. Either way, it is a good thing) and best of all, it has not one, not two, but three bottle openers built into it. Continue reading You Can Own the Barbie Like a Boss with this Machete… Spatula

This Brushed Aluminum Pen Is Also a Stylus and a 700 mAh Portable Battery

Well, you need to write in ink at some point. You also need a stylus at some point too and there is little doubt that we always in need for battery juice. So then why not grab a Power Pen? As the product name implies, it is a pen, but what it didn’t say is, it is also a stylus and packed inside its unassuming writing instrument form is a 700 mAh battery. At a swivel of the tip, you can quickly switch between a stylus and a ballpoint pen, and twisting the mid-section off, you will find a tip, a choice of Lightning and microUSB, that would let the 700 mAh juice flow to your device of choice. And on the other end, is a USB connector for recharging the internal battery, either through any powered USB port or any AC wall outlet. Granted that 700 mAh is barely enough for most of today’s smartphones, it should provide you that much needed jolt of power when you needed most.

Mad Men Print by Needle Design [Poster]

Mad Men appeal may not as far reaching as mafia series like The Sopranos, or fantasy drama such as the Game of Thrones, but still the series is no less acclaim and certainly not any less awesome. in fact, we think the show is absolutely cool (and it is also one show that reminds us to stay clear of advertising line) and so is this non official poster Mad Men Print by Needle Design. we love the retro 60s styling with simple palette, accompanied by a slight touch of rustic look, which fits the series perfectly. in short, the poster has it all: the atmosphere of the 60s where the series is set in, the white collar dude typical of the advertising industry (they just can’t loosen up like the Mountain View folks, can they?), and the obvious Manhattan skyline where the frictional Sterling Cooper is located. Needle Design basically brings the key elements of the TV show into one super cool illustration poster. available in either framed (450 by 620mm, or 17.7″ x 24.4″) or unframed (420 by 590mm, or 16.5″ x 23.2″) for £29.99 and £19.99, respectively. another look after the break.
