when it comes to furniture, the words ‘World’s Fastest’ hardly come into play, except if your furniture – a couch, in this instant – has an internal combustion engine under the hood, or should i say, under the seat. that’s truly one hot seat that would require you to don a full racing suit, racing shoes, and of course, a helmet when piloting it. especially so when it could hit 101 mph (163.12 km/h). this world record holder for the world’s fastest couch comes complete with a table (and a bowl of fruits to boot), not because of complimenting sake but rather, a necessity to improve its aerodynamic performance. this is one furniture that should compliment Perry Watkins’ world’s fastest dinning table and also betters Chris McIntosh’s leisure motorized recliner chair.

the next time when someone comes around and ask to lend a hand, he’s probably asking if he can borrow your iPhone. i am referring to this creepy case from Dokkiri, the same folks who brought to you the Japanese Beetle case. i have no idea why would someone want to produce a case with such a life-like rubber hand stuck to its back. perhaps, it is for some shock-factor? or there are those who feel the need to hold someone’s hand when making a call? regardless, it looks pretty awkward to hold. anyway, despite its creepiness, this might just be another mobile conversational piece. thankfully, Dokkiri decided not throw in some fake blood at the wrist cut off area.
