You Can Now Enable Spider-Man Skill On Alexa-enabled Devices

Fans of Spider-Man may want to know that you can now enable Spider-Man dynamic content on Alexa-enabled devices. Amazon described it as adding new skill to your device in which, when enabled, will let you use the Spider-Man invocation word in addition to the usual Alexa to learn more about the wall-crawler. You can, for examples, say “Alexa, ask Spider-Man for my countdown,” or “Alexa, ask Spider-Man for today’s update.” So, as you can see, you will have ask Alexa to ask Spider-Man which is kind of lame, but it will be probably fun for the first ten seconds. Definitely a novelty and not nearly as cool as Star Trek wake word, “Computer.” Continue reading You Can Now Enable Spider-Man Skill On Alexa-enabled Devices

Scratching These Cards Will Let You Sniff The Scent Of A Pet’s Belly

There’s no secret that Japanese love cats and dogs, but we didn’t expect it to get this far: scratch cards with belly smell of cats or dogs. No, seriously. It is not even April. This novelty item is as real as it can get. So, yes, it is REAL!. Brought to you by the other all-thing weird and quirky Japanese retailer Felissimo, the belly scent of an animal is released by the simple act of scratching (more like rubbing, really) the card. Not surprisingly, the card features an image of either fido or kitty with its belly exposed, so you can simulate scratching the pet’s abdomen. I know right. It sure sounds weird as f@*k, but then, it is expected of the Land of the Oddities. Continue reading Scratching These Cards Will Let You Sniff The Scent Of A Pet’s Belly

Flashing LED Eyelashes Are A Thing Because, Why Not?

When it comes to fashion, it is far from futuristic. Rightfully, it need not be, but that’s not what sci-fi novels and movies have thought us. Truth be told, we don’t even have a clear concept of what constitutes to futuristic fashion. Perhaps, a dress that displays tweets, or one that, for some reasons, turn more and more transparent when mobile data is collected, qualifies as fashion of the future? Whatever it is, we bet these Lighted LED lashes will be more than fitting for the future and the good news for all fashion futurists, the future is now. Continue reading Flashing LED Eyelashes Are A Thing Because, Why Not?

Centre Spin Is A Minimalist Fidget Spinner That You Never Knew You Need

If you have been following this blog, you will notice we hardly mention fidget spinners until of late when one custom fidget spinner actually piqued our interest. Sorry to say, I am in the camp that thought fidget spinners are kind of lame (though we don’t discriminate them, just so you know), but when I first lay eyes on the Centre Spin, I felt compelled to share it with you folks because it is, you know, classy. Before you get acquaint with Centre Spin, may I suggest you purge everything you know about fidget spinners because Centre Spin is unlike any other. It didn’t even look one to begin with and that’s just one of the many beauties it possesses. Continue reading Centre Spin Is A Minimalist Fidget Spinner That You Never Knew You Need

Gunsticles Give Your Firearm Balls And Yes, Gun Nuts Is A Thing

Believe or not, gun nuts is a thing now. I know it sounds a little wacky, or even weird, but like I said, it is a real thing and surely, this being 2017, nothing is quite impossible, really – including gun testicles. Developed by Working Rich Laboratories, the aptly named Gunsticles was born out of wackiness than necessity (obviously). But be warned, Gunsticles is strictly reserved for gun nuts (pun intended) with an incredible sense of humor and those without (sense of humor) will be offended, very offended. But what exactly is Gunsticles? Continue reading Gunsticles Give Your Firearm Balls And Yes, Gun Nuts Is A Thing

A Custom Fidget Spinner That Makes Mario Runs Is As Cool As It Sounds

I never understand the fidget spinner hype. Perhaps, I am a little too old? Or maybe, my digits do not find the need to, you know, fidget? That’s not to say I am a non-fidget saint. When I was younger I did fidget, but back in those days, we never had novelties like fidget spinners. We twirl our pens instead and I am not going to lie, during my entire student life, I always find myself twirling a writing instrument. In fact, I was getting pretty good at it to a point that I started “studying” the balance of each pen or pencil to determine which make/model was the best to satisfy my need to fidget. I only fall short of modifying the writing instrument to meet my restless digits’ needs. Continue reading A Custom Fidget Spinner That Makes Mario Runs Is As Cool As It Sounds

This Flying Butterfly Makes Physical Greeting Card Valid Once Again

In this digital age, is there still room for greeting cards? Probably, but greeting card’s relevance is diminishing. Except for the lack of tactile feel, what physical greeting card can do, can be achieved by a hassle-free digital card. At least, that’s my line of thought, until I came across The Magic Flying Butterfly. While some cards feature pop-ups to delight the recipient, this butterfly thing takes a step further: it sends a craft butterfly soaring into the air – up to 20 feet (about 6 meters), we heard, once the recipient opens the card. Now, that’s a surprise that will probably send hearts racing, but mostly because of a pleasant surprise (tho not if butterfly is monster to them).

Metallic Ink Printed Garments Remind TSA X-Ray Operator Of Your Rights

We totally understand the threat of terrorism when flying and because of this, we put our faith on the government to ensure a safe air travel. However, being humans, sometimes even government organisation can take things a little too far in the name of safety. Take for example, in the U.S.A, the Transportation Security Administration, or more famously known as TSA, is the authoritative figure to ensure our flight is free from terrorist-related dangers, but the search methods, like the full body scanner, is nothing short of controversial. It was with this in mind, designers Matt Ryan and Tim Geoghegan came with a line of clothing appropriately called 4th Amendment Wear.
