Spirited Away Kaonashi Musha-Musha Coin Bank Wants To Devour Your Coins

Holy mother of… it looks like fans of Japanese anime fantasy flick Spirited Away are in for a treat.

Officially called Spirited Away Kaonashi Musha-Musha Coin Bank, this novel, you-can’t-help-but-want-to-save adorable coin bank works pretty much like the popular Itazura Kitty Coin Bank in that it has an automated mechanism that makes depositing coins into a coin bank a little less mundane.

Meet The Straw, A Straw That Lets You Drink From Two Layers In One Suck

Tech innovation is hardly something you will associate with fast food chain, McDonald’s, but every once in a while, it happens, like for example for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day, McDonald’s has came out with a new minty shake called Chocolate Shamrock Shake. Why, of course, it is shamrock! But no, the innovation isn’t in this cold, sludgy beverage; it is in the straw. That’s right. The Straw. I know right? Just when you thought this sucking tube needs no further innovation, it had one and it had a fancy name too, called Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal which, not surprisingly, arrived to the acronym STRAW. Ingenious? Maybe. Continue reading Meet The Straw, A Straw That Lets You Drink From Two Layers In One Suck

Burger King Valentine’s Day Adults Meal Comes With, Well, An Adult Toy

What was meant to be a celebration of love and a month of romance has evolved into an obvious consumerism that businesses are quick to cash in on. But not all businesses actively cash on Valentine’s Day. Fast food restaurants for one, remain rather nonchalant about this ‘big event’ for lovers until of late when KFC New Zealand dished out KFC bouquets, and candlelight dinner over at White Castle and Waffle House. As it turns out, those weren’t the last of it. Burger King Israel also pulled off something rather unusual for this year’s day of romance. In response to how kids have ‘Kid’s Meal’, Burger King Israel came up with a novel idea of an Adults Meal just for this day. Continue reading Burger King Valentine’s Day Adults Meal Comes With, Well, An Adult Toy

Edible Mixed Tape Is Probably The Best And Coolest Valentine’s Day Gift Ever

Valentine’s Day is viewed by some as a business conspiracy to reap more money from consumers. You don’t need to look far to believe that this conspiracy theory may hold some truth. Just look at the bouquets’ price hikes. They are beyond horrendous. Perhaps, it (the price hike) is a way to make up for the “losses” through the many sales event through the year. I don’t know. Anyways, if you refused to partake in this reap-off fest, then why not make something for your love one? You know, like making a mixtape for him or her? But being the future, this mixtape is just a symbolic object that doesn’t actually record music or playback tunes.

3.5” Floppy Disk Lives Again, But This Time, It Is Used To Recharge Your Phone

Here we are, thinking that the good’ol 3.5-inch floppy disk is dead. Actually, it couldn’t be more dead. That’s the fact. 1.44 MB available on the storage media we once depended on has no place in today’s world and that’s not to mention the horrendous read/write speeds. No wait. Actually, it does have a place today but definitely not as a storage media. The Floppy Disc Powerbank by thumbsUP! is not quite the floppy disk you knew. While it may bear the same likeness as the forefather of digital storage, save for the increased thickness, it is actually a powerbank, AKA portable battery, that offers 2,500 mAh of juice to revive your dead phone.
