Gemy bathtub and shower in one

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

Can’t decide if you want a bath or a shower? Then why not check out this combination of both. Take a bath, take a shower or both at the same time. You’ll get massaging jets of water that will ease away all of the stress and worries of your day, while an integrated thermostat ensures that the water remains at the same temperature at all times.

Everything about this luxury spa tub/shower is computer controlled, like the intelligent water level check, ozone sterilizing, massage jets. A few headrests and the automatic cleaning system to make life joy. I almost feel relaxed already.

Double Room Circulator: Two fan heads are better than one

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2010

Fans are good for circulating the air in your room or your home in the summertime. So it makes no sense that they just point in one direction. The double room circulator makes more sense. It’s a double-headed fan that can be pointed in two directions at the same time for maximum circulation.

This design speeds up the circulating air, clearing the hot air from your home and cooling you down efficiently. Single head fans are for suckers.

Illuminated door handles warn you that the restroom is occupied

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

You know how it is. When you have to go, you have to go. But you don’t always know if someone is in there already. And from the other perspective, when you are doing your business, it’s annoying to hear someone knocking to rush you long.

Well, these neat illuminated door handles begin to glow when the door is locked from inside. It just takes a single AA battery to operate and anyway it makes your home look that much cooler.

Art Lebedev’s Battery Mug tells you how hot your coffee is

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2010

Pour your favorite hot beverage into Art Lebedev’s Battery Mug and the indicator on the side will show you how hot the liquid inside is, as long as it’s above 96.8°F. As you drink it, the green indicator will show you how much is left, and if its temperature gets too cool, the green indicators will fade to black.

Art Lebedev does it again, taking something familiar and making it even better. This mug is just $28. You need this right?

Girlfriend body pillow is perfect for geek with no girl

Posted in Home,Humor by Shane McGlaun on April 22nd, 2010

I have seen some weird things pop up for sale online, but typically, the major retailers like Sears stay away from anything that might be controversial typically. Sears has a new body pillow for sale that has boobs. The pillow is called the DeluxeComfort.com Girlfriend Body Pillow.

The pillow has a pair of boobs and an arm to wrap around your neck. I guess this would be perfect for the geek who has no girlfriend but wants to feel like they do. I am sure buying this pillow will mean you will never have a real girl though.

Spray bottle turns water into sanitizer

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2010

Spray cleaners that are antibiotic are expensive. That’s because of all the chemicals in there. But this new Ionator turns regular water into an ionized spray that kills 99.9% of common bacteria. It’s magic.

You just keep refilling it with water and you won’t have to buy those expensive cleaners any more. Thing is, the household version of this thing costs $169, so either way you are spending a lot of money. But if getting away from chemicals is important to you, this might be worth it.

Beer bottles blown into glasses are sweet

Posted in Home by Shane McGlaun on April 9th, 2010


The weekend is here, you might have one thing on your mind about now, kicking back, and grabbing yourself some Heine, you know Heineken beer. Make has posted up some cool glasses made out of old beer and soda bottles.

The glasses are made by glassblower Nick Paul in Chicago. I guess needing to make the glasses is a good reason for drinking lots of beer and soda. These glasses remind me a lot of drinking out of Mason jars for some reason.

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2010

We’ve never seen a toothbrush like this one before. These Hammacher Schlemmer super toothbrushes promise to clean all of your teeth in just 40 seconds.

It has four heads that will clean the front, back, and chewing surface of your top and bottom teeth all at the same time.

Why not decorate cables when you can’t hide them?

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

If you can’t hide them, you may as well decorate them. These decorative cable clips are a perfect way to do it. Once you have embraced the decoration of cables idea, the possibilities are endless.

You could have little Army men climbing them, you could give the cable a hundred legs like a centipede, etc. You are only limited by your imagination. It’s much better than just living with the mess they make.

Glow in the dark toilet paper

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2010

Or as we like to call these glowing rolls: Light wipes. We told you about glow in the dark tp back in August, but since the blogosphere seems to think this is a new thing, and since you may not have seen this before, we thought we would revisit this amazing development in luminescent wiping technology.

It’s great if you are wiping your crack in the dark, sure. But during a power outage it can actually help you find your toilet. Surely it’s safe to wipe with something that glows like radiation.

Heat Changing Arcade Mugs

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

You can never have too much Pac-Man in your life. Or Space Invaders. Excuse me, “Pac Boy” and “Space Intruders”. You could buy yourself a regular mug featuring arcade scenes, but these mugs from Thinkgeek react to the heat in your drink and actually do things.

For instance the Pac Boy mug starts off with an empty maze, but when you add heat and it gets filled with detail. Same with the Space Intruders mug.

‘Hershey’s Kisses’ CD holders

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2010

These Hershey’s Kiss CD/DVD holders are not very practical, but they sure look delicious, even if they aren’t real. If you want CDs all over your desk, this is the way to go. Of course, before you know it, you will break down and buy some real Hersey’s Kisses. Then you can just use the real thing for the same purpose.

At that point you can mix them up and play Russian Roulette with your teeth. Choose wisely and you have a tasty treat, if you don’t you will be breaking some teeth. You should probably just by the real candy and prop up your CDs that way.

Want to help the environment? Sure, we all do. One thing you can do is minimize your waste to reduce the amount of water you use. But it isn’t easy keeping track of how long you’ve been in the shower, and that’s where the Water Drop Shower Timer can help.

It attaches to your shower wall, allowing you to monitor your time in the shower. It will even alert you when you’ve used up your fair share of water. It will cost you $12.99.

Lots of kids and more than a few adults are instant gratification sorts. It’s hard to get some people to save money and teaching kids to save can be a bigger challenge. A new bank from a company called Ekomini aims to make teaching kids to save a little easier.

The bank plugs into an internet connected computer via USB and lets the kids keep up with how much change they put into the bank. The bank connects to an online virtual world letting the kids play games that encourage investment and saving.
