Soap Chair

This is a chair. It has many features that most chairs carry, including but not limited to a base, wheels and a backing. There’s just one slight difference between this chair and others: it’s made out of fucking soap. Don’t ask me why creator Nancy Wu created this. Maybe she’s dirty all the time and instead of bothering to bathe, ...

Mii Cupcakes

Delicious but not nutritious! If these cupcakes are anything like the Wii, you’ll love them when you first get them and after a few weeks, they’ll sit on your kitchen counter growing stale by the minute. Or should I say miinute? Ha! Get it? I’ll see you in hell. Link

Beat Blender Prototype

The Arduino continues to power innovation and creation well into 2009. This blender, created by Matti Niinimaki, is rigged to create beats. No smoothies here, folks, just pounding techno full of cheesy sound FX. The Beat Blender prototype reads fruit embedded with RFID tags that are dropped into it. Hitting different blending speeds (Puree, Liquify, Blend, Grind, etc.) will add ...

Super Mario Bros. Matryoshka Dolls Remind Us of the Motherland

Ahh, matryoshka dolls. What man hasn’t dreamed of ripping a woman in half only to find another woman inside and so on and so forth? I know I have! These matryoshkas just happen to be Super Mario Bros.-flavored. Custom designed by Flickr user cmsturmhous, these dolls would look awesome in any gaming room if you could somehow convince the maker ...

Extreme Sheepherding: Now With More LEDs and Less Anal!

I don’t trust sheepherders. While I’m sure that many of them live an honorable and hardworking existence, I can’t help but shake the idea that most herding-peoples have some sort of animal-sex fetish. I know, it’s a problem. I’ll be seeking therapy soon. I blame the media. Now, extreme sheepherding on the other hand is a lamb of a different ...

Cupcake CNC Machine Kit

Jakob Lodwick, founder of Vimeo and online entrepreneur, has thrown a lot of money at DIYers Bre Pettis and Zack Hoeken. So much, in fact, that they decided to start a robot company called MakerBot Industries. The company’s first product is the Cupcake CNC machine kit. As it implies, it’s a kit that lets you build your very own CNC ...

Smashing Pumpkins: The Video Game?

Billy Corgan and the Smashing Pumpkins are sadly no longer in their prime. It seems that most of Corgan’s uncanny song writing ability went out the window about the same time he ditched his hair. But Pumpkin fans continue to worship the band’s original genius. YouTube user elmacbee created this ultra-fake Smashing Pumpkins video game, which is pretty much just ...

Turn Your Roomba Into a Horny Toad

Mmm, I’m not sure how I feel about this “mod” for the Roomba. While the furry cover for the vacuum is welcome, the strange look this toad has on its face is somewhat like the Mona Lisa’s smile: creepy and mysterious. That’s probably ’cause it’s made with real glass eyes. I get the whole toad thing, but how come I’m ...

Skiing the Slopes as You Drop The Browns Off at the Ole Swimming Hole

Talk about being scared shitless. Coca-Cola has gone all hardcore with the marketing of their new Georgia Max Coffee brand, redesigning a number of toilets at some of the most popular ski resorts in Japan. And really, where else could something this absurdly awesome exist? The fully wrapped bathroom walls simulate the experience of a skier on all sides of ...
