Blow Up Couch Doubles as a Flotation Device

Tell me this wouldn’t have come in handy during Hurricane Katrina. Made out of dunnage bags, Malafor’s Blow Sofa is a mobile piece of furniture which lends its self to easy transportation thanks to its ability to flatten into two empty bags. Both inexpensive and easy to replace, the Blow Sofa appears to be just as comfy as an air ...

I’ve been on the market for weapons now for a decent amount of time, and it seems everywhere I turn there are just more and more weapons made to cause no physical pain or damage to your enemies. What’s the point? To have fun? Screw fun. Where’s the blood? Now that’s fun! Despite my obvious blood-lust, I can see the ...

Switzerland: Flying In Style

Is this a museum? An art installation? Absolutely not. This is an airplane and its destination is Switzerland. Swiss Airlines is offering up gorgeous work cubicles for its fliers who need to get work done in style. Need Internet? No problem. A little TV for you, sir? Of course, of course.

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL Shoes

Nike is no stranger to designing lightweight footwear. An old pair of Air Mercurial Vapor IVs I used to own were the lightest shoes I had ever touched on this planet. Now Nike is telling me that I’m an idiot and that these $400 Mercurial Vapor SL (“Super Lite”) shoes are the next generation of Nike. Designed for soccer, these ...

DIY: Paper Airplane Launcher

Now, this is interesting. An electric paper plane launcher kit that you put together yourself. Too bad the entire point of crafting a paper airplane is to wing it at someones head. With this launcher, you not only miss out on choosing your targets, but you also waste precious time building it. Time that’s better spent putting together more paper ...

WaterMill: Making Water As Common As Air

I don’t understand why I can’t spend three hours in the shower or courtesy flush twice during a massive number two.

NES Air Max Sneakers Are Not As Cool As They Try To Be

At first, these shoes don’t look much like a classic Nintendo Entertainment System. Look closer. These kicks have D-pads printed around them. Look even closer. See the “Start” button? It’s trying very hard to look like the one on the controller. Definitely a cool design, but is it cooler than Hennessys Cognac Kicks? Absolutely not. Not even close. There is ...

Hot Air Balloon Soars To A Galaxy Far, Far Away

In a world of good-guy smugglers and noble Jedi, one Sith must instill fear any way he can. That’s why Darth Vader built this hot air balloon. Not just because the town fare is approaching and Vader wanted to make sure he’ll be soaring high next to the Yogi bear and Batman inflatables but because Vader wishes to scare away ...

Blood By Air – The Medical Robot Carrier Pigeon

The practical uses for unmanned aerial vehicles are proving limitless. Once used for espionage and photography, these airborne spy bots just fell victim to a role reversal: they’ve gone from spy to medic. Well, while they don’t exactly heal wounds out on the battlefield, they do provide air transport for supplies needed in dire situations. Think of them as carrier ...
