Doormat Scale Breaks Your Guests’ Spirits

And they really thought they could avoid weighing themselves by hiding their own scale. Nice try, fatty. There’s no way to avoid your morbid obesity now. There’s no blaming it on your big bones. The scale doesn’t lie. Either does the fact that you can’t fit through my door without shimmying ever so delicately. The Doormat Scale won’t let your ...

NES Controller Soap

If you’re getting sick of washing your kids’ mouth out with Gmail, maybe it’s time to make a soap switch. This NES Controller Soap is just as geeky, perhaps even more so, than the Gmail soap.

How To Convert Your Wall Outlet Into a USB Charging Outlet

The future is now… almost. Soon enough, we’ll have no need for conventional electronic outlets because everything will be powered via USB. At least until everything is powered by simple kinetic energy or just by the air itself. We already have a ton of gadgets which are powered via USB, most notably the iPhone and iPod. This awesome step-by-step how-to ...

H2OmNom: Periodic Table Cupcakes

The tastiest set of atomic goodness was hard to find, but we might have just found the winner. These Periodic Table Cupcakes emulate the elements. Not only are they color-coded and educational, but absolutely scrumptious looking. Despite lacking the scientifically correct Lanthanoids and Actinoids (What?

“Apple” Apple Pie

Dessert is one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving. An essential part and the perfect ending to a turkey and stuffing meal is warm apple pie. But you know us well enough now to know that we wouldn’t let the blatant Apple reference simply soar into the wind. There just had to be a way to make our apple pie ...
