Hermès Takes Foosball To The Luxury Realm With A $68K Foosball Table

Yup. You heard that right. A freaking $68K foosball table only from Hermès. Never would I have imagine the Parisian fashion house to turn out “luxury” recreation equipment, let alone a foosball table. But here it is, the Hermès Foosball Table. It is real, it is outlandishly lavish, and it is probably one of the most luxurious, if not the most luxurious, foosball tablet there is today. Featuring a maple construction, wrapped in Swift calfskin, the Hermès Foosball Table is all about elegance and attention to details. Attention to details like satin metal hardware (knurled where appropriate), stitched leather handles, carefully color matched score posts, and highly detailed soccer players who are, in the spirit of the fashion label’s branding, actually jockeys.

Nothing Much Here. It’s Just A Round Take Of The 1984’s Three Man Chess

The old adage of “two’s company, three’s a crowd” is obviously not true with the 3 Man Chess. First invented by George R. Dekle, Sr. in 1984, the 3 Man Chess you see here is a new take of the original while retaining the same principle of three’s not a crowd by allowing three person to play a game of chess together. For the uninitiated, George R. Dekle, Sr.’s original design was a hexagonal board comprising of 96 quadrilateral cells. But in the case of this 3 Man Chess set, it sports a round board that measures 19 inches (48 cm) in diameter and comes in at 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick. Continue reading Nothing Much Here. It’s Just A Round Take Of The 1984’s Three Man Chess

You’ve Always Felt Carnival Games Are Scammy, Now One Guy Prove That It Is

Been to a carnival? Good. Now, if you felt carnival games are a little scammy. Well, the good news is, you are not wrong. I mean, seriously, you didn’t think that could have it this easy, did you? Paying some loose change and you’d get guarantee yourself a big-ass plushy to impress your girl? That would be too easy. Usually you had to drop more than a few loose coins because the truth is, it will take more than a few times to actually ‘win’ – that’s if you even can win. And the event that you did win, you’d be overpaying for the perceived “expensive” plushy. Continue reading You’ve Always Felt Carnival Games Are Scammy, Now One Guy Prove That It Is

You Can Relive The Grandeur Of Inflight Dining With Pan Am Experience

Before the inflight meals became a flying horror story, inflight dining, particularly in the 50s to 70s, was an experience to behold. In fact, it was an upmarket kind of experience where meals are served hot in real China and sometimes, even silverware. Also, seats weren’t this cram back in those days (the future could be worst, btw). Clearly, today’s microwave oven varieties in shrink-wrapped in disposal containers certainly can’t hold a candle to what the 50s-70s airlines had offered. But fear not, one aviation enthusiast/Pan Am aficionados, Anthony Toth, has taken upon himself to bring back the glory days of inflight meals, recreating the grandeur of inflight meals once experience by our forebears by replicating it onboard a replica Boeing 747-200 jumbo jet.

Intex’s New Inflatable Bull Lets You Do Rodeo On Water, Friends Not Included

Mechanical bull is fun. It challenges one’s strength and sense of balance on an unpredictable mechanical animal without actually abusing the animal and since it isn’t a real bull, you won’t risk being trample to death. Though it could be dangerous if one’s not careful enough and being a person of caution, you probably want to stay away from a raging mechanical bull. Well, not if you are taming the beast on water because that’s what above ground pool specialist Intex’s Inflat-A-Bull Inflatable Pool Toy lets you do. Unlike the mechanical bull, this one isn’t mechanical. It is just an inflatable float in the shape of a very unhappy bull rigged to an oversized circular float.

Clue Game: Star Wars Edition Lets You Have A Hand In Destroying Death Star

Think Clue Game and now think Star Wars. Well, the two doesn’t quite appear to be a match, isn’t it? I mean, come’on, people die all the time in Star Wars and if it is set in the Death Star like this game does, you are going to have shit load of suspects, though the finger will almost likely point to Darth Vader. Anyways, while we think it is not quite a match, Hasbro didn’t think so and has in fact turn out the Clue Game: Star Wars Edition. But unlike your regular Clue Game, there’s a plot twist here: there’s no death involved and therefore, there’s no murder mystery to solve.

We See A Tint Of The Fifth Element Vibe In Luc Besson’s New Sci-Fi Flick

As you may have already known, we don’t normally take up an entire post to talk about a movie trailer unless it is really, really a huge deal and today, the huge deal is upon as and this ‘huge deal’ is Luc Besson’s much anticipated sci-fi flick, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Ever since The Fifth Element dropped back in 1997, it forever changed how we looked at sci-fi movies. It became the benchmark of sci-fi movies and it was also a movie that deeply ingrained in us the exciting (or not, depending on your state of mind) prospect about the future where humans and aliens interaction is a commonplace and also, awesome flying cars.
