Universal remote pillow

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

This pillow will let you channel surf, but not rest your head at the same time. It’s a pillow. With a remote crammed inside. The folks at Brookstone have turned this dream into a reality. They say that this unit can be programmed to work with over 500 devices.

Even better, there’s a power-saving auto shutoff feature that can be overridden by your squeezing. It’s probably not very comfortable as a pillow, but for $29.95 it’s a fun remote. It will require 2 AAA batteries.

CarLashes for your headlights

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

Every car has a unique personality, but if you don’t like your car’s personality, or want to make it look sexy to other cars, why not try carLashes? They go just above your headlights to make it seem as if the car is making goo-goo eyes at you.

The Bug does look pretty cute, but this would look horrible on some cars. If you want, you can even get them with crystal eyeliner to make it look like a real tramp.

Phoneballs iPhone case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

Dropped calls? This iPhone case has dropped balls. Normally a case will protect your phone, but I’m not so sure this one will. After all, haven’t countless videos shown us that balls are like magnets when it comes to being kicked and punched in them?

Seems like it would draw some sort of vicious ball attack. They come in blue and peach and will cost you $15. Not sure why you would want that end near your mouth while using your phone, but at least 10% of all proceeds go to testicular cancer research.

Gear Shift Radio

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on April 13th, 2010

Changing radio channels is like racing with this Gear Shift Radio. It’s designed to look like a car’s gear system and requires that you shift gears in order to control the radio, thereby adding some unnecessary work to what would otherwise be an enjoyable listening experience.

No drivers license required, but you do need some AAA batteries. The Gear Shift FM Radio will cost you $24. Now maybe you can get a dashboard display to go with it.

Zap aliens with the Alien Hunter Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2010

I don’t care what kind of alien you are, if you wake me up, you’re getting zapped by a laser gun. Unless you’re one of those grey abducting bastards, in which case I’ll probably get anal-probed and forget the whole thing. But anyway, the Alien Hunter alarm clock is designed to make waking up a game.

That alien coming out of the gooey egg wakes you up and you shoot it dead. Can you imagine this going on every day? That’s how aliens are, they never stop. The Alien Hunter alarm clock is priced at just $19. You can get a lot of kills for that price.

Feel free to curse and call them names as you uncork the bottle, pretending that you are sticking it in some banker’s ear…Or other orifice.

USB Pet Rock is still useless

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on November 25th, 2009

USB Pet Rock is still uselessRemember the old Pet Rock craze of the 1970s? Well, it’s back and with a USB upgrade no less. I never understood the appeal of Pet Rocks myself, but maybe that’s because I’m not a sucker. This USB-powered update just sits there, like it’s predecessor and does nothing.

Much like the Tauntaun sleeping bag, the USB Pet Rock was an April Fools Day joke that has turned into a real product. For some reason.

Forget Air Guitar, play the Rock Guitar Shirt

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

Forget Air Guitar, play the Rock Guitar Shirt Now you can retire from your gig as air guitar rocker and play your shirt instead. This Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt even has its own mini amplifier. When you strum the shirt with the special magnetic pick, it delivers some awesome distorted-sounding guitar chords.

You can’t rock individual notes, but there are 15 different power cords, covering all the major keys. Once you figure out where to activate each of the chords on the shirt’s “frets,” just press your finger there and start strumming.

Kill the undead with the Zombie Shooting GalleryZombies are constantly in the news these days. Or they would be, if it wasn’t a conspiracy run by the media. Anyhow, with so many zombies on the loose, you have to practice and keep your aim sharp. After all, if you fail to get a headshot, you may get bitten and become one yourself.

Video games are good practice. So is this Zombie Shooting Gallery. Keep it in the office and unleash your fury on tons of undead while killing time as well. You have to kill the zombie that pops out or it eats a human hostage. The zombies will pop in and out faster as it continues.

Elite Marshmallow Blaster

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2009

Elite Marshmallow BlasterA few years ago we covered the Marshmallow Blaster. Now the Elite Marshmallow Blaster is here. I’m not sure if they are trying to say that this is an actual improvement on the original or not, but they added the word Elite, so it must be better right?

The Executive Elite Marshmallow Blaster delivers a soft blow to your enemies. It’s a pump-action single shot weapon that fires standard marshmallows up to 40 feet and arrives in a briefcase.
