Why didn’t anyone think of this awesome concept before? ‘E-Nabling The Future’, an organization that creates prosthetic limbs for children in need, came up with the concept of superhero-themed prosthetic arms. So instead of an average prosthetic arm, kids would get a prosthetic Wolverine arm, complete with claws! Now who wouldn’t get excited over that!
To the average tourist, Japan seems to have more than her fair share of drunken salaried men, impossibly cute girls and geeky college kids passing out on the streets, in stairwells and inside train carriages pretty much every weekend. The Yaocho Bar Group has been diligently looking for these comatose drunks. When they spot one, […]
Leftovers, you have met your match! ‘Cover Blubber’ is an elastic, reusable wrapping material that kinda looks like some type of alien goo, but is really just an airtight seal for your food.

The Blobfish might have been dubbed as the ‘world’s ugliest animal’ but at least it’s much cuddlier than you – at least in plush form. Online purveyor of cool stuff, ThinkGeek, is selling a plush version of the grumpiest cat of the sea. The website says it’s super soft and made for hugging, just like […]
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth has long been the fancy of geeks with its diverse and magical world filled with Elves, dragons, dwarves, Hobbits, and an evil oversized eye that’s on fire. Soon, we could be exploring the fantasy realm ourselves with the help of Danish programmers, who are attempting to create a digital world that matches it on a 1:1 scale – minus the bloodshed and temptation to be evil, of course.
Brazilian visual artist Butcher Billy took his passion for pop culture and mixed and matched it in his series about post-punk and new wave music stars as superheroes. We interviewed him recently about his roots and influences in pop culture, as well as his views on art and superheroes. Also, he tells us if he’s a DC or a Marvel guy.
ThinkGeek, an online purveyor of mystical goods such as the famous Canned Unicorn Meat has come out with a new product that’s dangerously delicious. Canned Dragon Meat is pre-cooked, charred dragon meat that according to the website, ‘contains 100% of your daily value of havoc, terror, inferno, destruction, magic, and rage’.

This is by far the lightest keyboard we’ve ever encountered. The Laser Virtual Keyboard is a functional full-size QWERTY keyboard that can be projected onto any flat surface via a modestly small device. It can also be used with any bluetooth-enabled device (no USB connections there, duh), such as tablets and smartphones. Versatile.
Wasn’t that long ago that canned unicorn meat was so hot, it was quickly sold out. Now the meat of the ‘tasty magical beast’ is back in stock, thanks to a more sustainable formula: stuffed unicorn plushies, chopped up in bits.

As if hot sauces aren’t quite spicy enough. DoubleKick Caffeinated Hot Sauce, which we found on ThinkGeek, purports to combine the best of Asian and Southwestern chili sauces before leveling up with ginger and caffeine. How much caffeine does it have really? Well, every serving of 1 tsp serves up 12 mg. Of course, there’s […]
If sympathy for Batman could be captured and sold in any one product, the Batman Family Car Decal would be it. It features two gravestones, one for Bat-daddy Dr. Thomas Wayne and the other for Bat-mommy Martha Wayne, as well as one Batman with a sadface. Fine, so this Thinkgeek product was an April Fool’s […]

Inspired by Richard Taylor’s fortress design as seen in the Tolkien’s The Lord of the Ring movie trilogy, David Tremont downsized the menacing […]
Smitten. That’s what we are for Cape Town’s Truth Coffee. Blame the stripped away industrial interior, the long hanging lights, the beautiful vintage detailing on the coffee bar, and the heavy wooden communal tables, anchored with piping. The ruby red stools, the pops of color, and the grand silver roasting machine help too. Through and […]
