Have you ever wondered why manufacturers place small plastic discs inside of soda bottle caps? Or why all jeans seem to have randomly placed metal studs? There are so many little details that we overlook when it comes to everyday objects. Sometimes we assume that they have no purpose at all, and that they exist for purely aesthetic reasons.

The 21 Most Bullshit Man Products Made Just ‘For Men’

The 21 Most Bullshit Man Products Made Just ‘For Men’

yQxTtQ0[1]

Someone asked Reddit what the most bullshit “for men” products were, so I went through and picked the funniest and most ridiculous responses, which you can find below…

X2zJde3[1]

Dude Stick “Chapstick For Men”


You ever listen to 50 Cent’s “Magic Stick” and thought, mmm, I want that all over my lips!? Then, you’re in luck. You might also be attracted to men. Self-discovery is an amazing adventure!

 

ME7tcDD[1]

Sunscreen For Men

Only a company like “Banana Boat” would try to sell something like this. Get on the boat, the Banana Boat? Why? Why do you want me to ride your banana? And then cover me in your lotion?

MllqpBV[1]

Kleenex Mansize Tissues For Men

Yo, you blow big loads!??!

5V88sKf[1]

Man Lotion

Yo, you like to be covered in big loads?!?!?

QTRI5Jt[1]

Bronuts

I can’t really knock this idea. Somehow, it’s less offensive than ‘donut holes’. But, you’re still eating balls. Balls or holes, pick your poison. Chef from South Park would be proud and might be owed some royalties.

uH2xE55[1]

Hero Clean “The Household Cleaning Line Built For Men” 

I get that most cleaning products are targeted to women, but have some men NOT been buying cleaning products or refusing to clean because it’s for chicks? Don’t get me wrong, I hate cleaning, but it’s not because people will think I have a beaver.

ryqm7yY[1]

Marzipan For Men

Can you imagine carrying this tool box of chocolates by a construction site?

oc7KTBO[1]

Toothpaste For Men

You know, so you’re pearly whites ain’t girly.

xWTMu3G[1]

Hair Ties For Men

The man bun is still a thing. Because women continue to bone bros with man buns. As soon as women shut down their downstairs parts to man bun bros, it’ll go away. Lookin’ at you, ladies.

Dr. Pepper Ten

I kinda think this is sneaky genius. It’s like reverse psychology. Like, when you see those old school cartoon characters set up a treehouse club with a sign that says “NO GIRLS ALLOWED”. You secretly want women all up in it to swipe that V-card. I guarantee there’s a group of gals out there who saw “not for women” and immediately ran to the store to buy a sixer.

QZYCYhg[1]

Dude Wipes

I have to believe this product is solely for male strippers.

T1P93Zu[1]

Meggings: Leggings For Men

While you’re at it, you should put Meg from Family Guy on a pair. Meg on Meggings. The men who wear meggings most likely use almost every other product on this list. Maybe it’s because they have a girlfriend and that girlfriend is sick and tired of him “borrowing” all her shit.

QxEssJv[1]

Manglaze: Nail Polish For Dudes

Look, I know Dave Navarro wears meggings and make up and nail polish and his penis has seen the inside of more women than all gynecologists combined, but I can’t have a product synonymous with semen on my fingers.

0EoEGHO[1]

Gilco Men’s Pocky

Guys, it’s okay to eat chocolate snacks. Slapping “Men’s” in front of it makes it weird. If a woman eats it, will she sprout a spout down south?

p4z5Ha9[1]

Brogamats: Yoga Mats & Pads For Men

I have to admit some of these yoga bags are clever. The burrito bag is pretty boss. But, I just can’t feel right about pretending I’m a lumberjack or archer because I know how to downward dog. That thought causes a glitch in The Matrix.

vtaGzjB[1]

Dryer Sheets For Men

Engineered to de-spunk your spandex.

JXOvWGF[1]

Brogurt: Yogurt For Men

I might need to take a break from all yogurt after this.

a5tgmqC[1]

Men’s Tea

If you’re gonna do this, you might as well go all the way and have the tea bags look like nutsacks.

H2p4CFPl[1]

Men’s Bread

For some reason, I feel like this would be like eating beef jerky. It just makes your jaw hurt like going down on a dame who just can’t ‘get there’.

Yorkie Bar: The Candy Bar For Guys

See what I mean? In that commercial, the woman’s like, “I HAVE to know what’s up with this candy for dudes”. If this chocolate monstrosity makes women barren, then yeah, throw a warning label on there, otherwise, I honestly don’t mind.

2s95X1p[1]

Flavored Milk For Men

You want to have some fun? Google “mammoth milk”. You’re welcome.

 


5 Future Things That Have Already Happened

5 Future Things That Have Already Happened

Jet-packs. Virtual Reality. Driverless cars. In many ways, the future is already here. And sure, jet-packs are so cost-prohibitive as to be impractical. And yes, virtual reality is, for now, a great way to get nauseous. And true, we just found out a car doesn’t need a driver to have a traffic accident. But many of the products we thought would only exist in sci-fi movies are already here, making your life just a little bit better (read: creepier). Here are some futuristic things that have already happened!

Programing Knowledge Straight into the Brain

Matrix Neo mind program
(source)

Much like Neo, you can now learn kung fu without having to sign up for lessons, go to only one class, and then use your gi as a bathrobe. Researchers in HRL Laboratories in California say that through neural stimulation, they can feed new information into a person’s mind while they sleep. Electrode-embedded caps are placed over particular areas of the brain to send specific knowledge. With Google and this technology, you'll soon have no excuse for not knowing literally everything all the time.

 

Exoskeletons

Iron Man 3 armor
(source)

Because military funds have to be spent somewhere, U.S. armed forces have long been at work creating exoskeletons to give soldiers increased strength and endurance. The first attempt came in 1965, when General Electric created Hardiman. Designed to let a person lift almost three-quarters of a ton with ease, Hardiman also experienced sudden, uncontrollable movements. No human ever climbed inside the exoskeleton, so as to avoid what emergency medics call “pretzeling”. Today, DARPA is working on a more reliable exoskeleton that will allow troops to do more with less energy. As for when they'll be able to fly, remember that Tony Stark went through at least 42 versions to get his right.

 

Printable Human Organs

3D printable human ear
(source)

As 3D printers get cheaper, they're being used for more than frantically making a coffee mug for your mom the morning of her birthday. Printers have already been used to make skin, blood vessels, and even a bladder, often with the patient’s own cells. Now scientists are trying to replicate even more complicated organs like kidneys, pancreases, and even hearts. While we may never be like Captain Picard ordering Early Grey tea from a food replicator, you may soon be able to say, “Computer, small intestine” (and then wander around your neighborhood in search of a doctor who can put it in your body).

 

Self-Assembling Robots

M Blocks self-assembling robot
(source)

While they're not exactly Transformers (or even their dollar-bin equivalent, GoBots) the small M blocks are able to move independently, leap through the air, and join together to create new shapes. Essentially small cubes with no external moving parts, the M blocks are the first step toward robots being able to take command of their own form, movement, and repairs. In short, they are the precise starting point for mankind’s doom.

Medical Tricorder

Star Trek’s Dr. McCoy using medical tricorder
(source)

A device that made Dr. McCoy’s job so easy on Star Trek that one had to wonder if he even attended med school, the medical tricorder has long been the dream of doctors and patients alike. Since 2012, a competition called the Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize has encouraged people to create a working prototype that will let a physician scan a body and find out what's going wrong. One company has even created a handheld scanning device that is placed by the patient’s forehead to measure vital signs, while another has developed one that can detect over 1,000 types of disease-causing bacteria. That means that one day, with a few dollars and the right phone app, you too can open a medical practice.

 

What future-y things are you waiting for?

‘The Edible Spoon Maker’ Is A New Dumb Thing You Can Buy And Use Only Once

 

edible-spoon-maker-21199 Ever buy something randomly with amazing intentions then never use it? Yeah, me too. Like once I thought I was going to make quesadillas a lot so I bought a quesadilla-maker at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I used it once and found the experience so frustrating that I never used it again. It is a total pain in the ass to clean, so instead I just make my quesadillas the old fashion way in a frying pan. Ditto with my waffle maker. And juicer. And the sandwich panini press. All of these things are just sitting my cabinet, used only once.

Maybe I’m just lazy.

“The Edible Spoon Maker” is one of those dumb things you see in the “As Seen On TV” aisle at Rite Aide and buy it thinking “omg, I’m going to make spoon-shaped tortilla chips to eat salsa with!” But the reality is that it’s totally a pain in the ass to make 50+ spoon-shaped tortilla chips for a Super Bowl party, so you just give up and never use it again.

gallery12-2

gallery13-1

That said, it’s genius. Think of any item you make a batter for and you can have it in the shape of a spoon. Pancake spoons! If you girl spends the night because you banged after taking her on a hot date to Chilis, you can treat her to a plate full of yummy french toast spoons.

That’s real romance right there.

10 Ridiculous Food Gadgets You Have To See To Believe

foodThe kitchen can be a perplexing place. We all need gadgets to get our cooking and baking done, but sometimes food inventions just go too far. Do we need something to help us scramble our eggs and turn them into a log? Is there ever a time when leftover pizza should be turned into an accessory — you know, instead of being left in the fridge to be consumed at a later time?

Ramen Hair Protector

Ramen Hair Protector

This ramen hair protector. I mean, WHAT IS THIS? The product costs $15 (HA!), but the tag line is priceless: “Who likes when ramen broth splashes you in the hair, necessitating having to wash sooner than scheduled?”

Portable Pizza Pouch 

Portable Pizza Pouch

I have heard the saying that sex is like pizza: Even when it is bad, it’s still good. But is that really true? Really? Would a slice of pizza stored in a plastic pouch and worn around someone’s neck be better than just skipping the slice altogether? I’ll let you decide. (But seriously, please don’t eat the pouch pizza.)

The Keyboard Waffle Iron

The Keyboard Waffle Iron

For some reason, this keyboard waffle iron makes me think about that scene in Wayne’s World when Stacey gives Wayne the gun rack for his birthday. (“I don’t even own a gun, let alone many that would necessitate an entire rack.”) I feel similarly about this waffle iron: I don’t really love waffles, but even if I did, would I want to consume an entire QWERTY board’s worth? Then again, I clearly don’t know anything about anything, ’cause this guy raised more than $66,000 on Kickstarter to make this a reality.

 

The Selfie Spoon

The Selfie Spoon

What signifies the death of a trend? When I saw this selfie spoon, I thought that maybe we had taken this whole selfie thing too far and this was the beginning of the end. Do we really need this photographic angle when sharing pictures of ourselves shoving food into our mouths? This might be the most perplexing of food inventions.

Wine Sack

Wine Sack

If smacking your head with your palm after seeing the ramen hair protector gave you a massive headache, then maybe you need a drink! But will you ever need a bag’s worth of drinks, like this wine sack? Will that ever be something you carry around? Really? If I saw a friend of mine carry this around, I’d pull them aside and be like, “Look. We need to talk about your drinking habit and your shopping habit.” An intervention double whammy.

 

The Obol

The Obol

I mean, I guess really hating soggy cereal is a thing, but COME ON — do we really need a bowl that divides foods and liquids like this? Especially when said food is meant to be served in a liquid?

Chambong

Chambong

These guys wanted to create a super bowl to smoke from during the Super Bowl, but when that “apparatus” turned out to be non-functional, they realized it could work as a champagne shooter. TRUE STORY. It’s the thing we never knew we never needed.

 

Cat Egg Mold

Cat Egg Mold

I don’t have kids yet, so I don’t know the lengths parents have to go to in order to get their kids to eat. But even if my kid turns out to be the pickiest eater on the planet, I don’t think I’ll be making them fried eggs in the shape of a cat face.

 

The Rollie

 

The Rollie

Let’s keep with the egg theme and look ahead to this bizarre gadget that really defies logic — and makes my brain hurt. The Rollie’s tag line is “cooking eggs made easy,” but is cooking eggs really that hard? If the Rollie helped to make the perfect poached egg, I’d be like, “Oh, fair enough,” but the Rollie just makes scrambled eggs in a log shape. Watch the infomercial and tell me that you want to eat that. I dare you.

 

The Dipr

Why oh why do people invent things for problems that don’t exist? If you think the Rollie was bad, then how about this cookie spoon “that makes dipping easier.” WHEN WAS DUNKING COOKIES IN MILK EVER HARD? What’s more, there are five different colors “to collect.” I give up.

25 Cheap And Useful Things That Nobody Ever Has

Cheap and useful, those are two words that everyone loves. The problem is that we often think of useful things as being expensive. Okay, maybe not consciously, but certainly subconsciously. Although many of our problems can be solved with home made hacks, cheap gadgets, and some creative improvising, if we need something done our first impulse is to go and buy the product (usually expensive) that fills that particular need.

Of course these days we have the internet so it’s much easier to just search around on forums for some sort of hack, but that doesn’t change the fact that we still tend to be poor planners and improvisers. And that’s what this list is about. It’s about planning ahead. That immigration form on the airplane? You’ll be the one with the pen while everyone else is asking the flight attendants. Car battery died? You’ve got the jumper cables. Need to open something up? You’ve got the pocket knife.

Now don’t get us wrong. We’re not suggesting that you go out and start hoarding stuff. Not at all. We’re just going to suggest some things that are typically dirt cheap and will give you some bang for you buck with their usefulness. And you’ll also probably get a lot of cool points from your friends for always being so well prepared. These are 25 cheap and useful things that nobody ever has.

The 10 Largest Purchases On eBay

The 10 Largest Purchases On eBay

You can get pretty much anything on eBay. From a haunted rubber duck to canned unicorn meat, the online marketplace can be a bazaar for the bizarre or just a place to buy some cheap socks. Since its inception in 1995, eBay has been used to buy and sell just about everything (with the exception of illicit drugs which can be bought on darknet sites like The Silk Road).

It comes as no surprise that the online retailer is being used to auction off some ultra-expensive stuff; it’s a trusted, user-friendly means of online commerce. Although eBay isn’t quite Sotheby’s, yet, the site is clearly on their way to being a power in the auction world. As you’ll see, people have taken to the site to help them unload a variety of pricey items: from sports memorabilia to space rocks to luxury vehicles.

For those who haven’t used the site (have you been living in a Blast from the Past-style bunker? If so, where’s Brendan Fraser?), it’s quite easy. Users upload an item to sell and include a starting bid ($0.99, for example), at which point other users begin bidding on the item. Like any auction, bidding wars ensue. The item’s price is driven up based on how much demand there is for it. It’s like this cool microcosm of capitalism where the free market reigns supreme.

Sit back, relax and get ready to ball out as you peruse the 10 largest eBay purchases of all-time.

10. Barry Bonds’ 715th Home Run Ball

bonds

Via blazepress.com

In 2006, a baseball hit by renowned slugger and known juicer Barry Bonds was scooped up on eBay for a cool $220,100. The ball commemorates Barry Bonds passing Babe Ruth to become the second-greatest slugger in MLB history (second only to Hank Aaron who had 755. Bonds later broke this record too, finishing his career with 762 dingers).

The ball was sold by Andrew Morbitzer who caught the ball at AT&T Park on May 28, 2006. The ball has likely lost value as Barry Bonds’ legacy is frequently called into question by baseball purists after multiple accusations of steroid use.

9. Zagami Martian Meteorite

zagami

Via www.encyclopedia-of-meteorites.com

The Zagami Martian Meteorite fell to the Earth in 1962, landing in Nigeria. One of the most sought-after martian meteorites on the whole planet earth, the Zagami was bought for the steep price of $450,000 in 2006. I know what some of you are saying: almost half a mill for some rock? I know, I’m kind of in the same boat but, apparently, it’s important. So much so that, according to reports, the future owner was being asked to loan the meteorite to various museums and planetariums. Hopefully the Zagami’s sale can aid in future research and learning.

8. 2003 Enzo Ferrari

Via www.rssportscars.com

In 2004, a gorgeous Enzo Ferrari was put up for sale on eBay and it was quickly bought. Only 400 Enzo Ferrari’s were manufactured, all of which were purchased before leaving the assembly line. The ultra exclusive sports car is the prize of a lot of car owner’s collections. If someone were looking to get an Enzo today, you’d be looking at a million-plus dollar price tag. This one was sold for $650,000. So, it looks like somebody was desperate to liquidate their assets and someone else lucked into a great deal. All’s fair in love and sports cars, I suppose.

7. Honus Wagner Baseball Card

Via www.nydailynews.com

American Tobacco Company, the former owners of Lucky Strike cigarettes, sold this historic card in 2000 for a reported $1.265 million. According to fable, the American Tobacco Company printed the card without the consent of Honus Wagner who didn’t want to endorse the smoking of tobacco. Due to the dispute, ATC halted production and distribution of the card, releasing only 57 to the public. This is why this card remains one of the most valuable sports collectibles. eBay auctioneer Michael Gidwitz bought the card for $600,000 and was able to double his initial investment with this sale.

6. Bridgeville, California

Bridgeville

Via www.topbestbox.com

Bridgeville is an unincorporated Northern California town that has been put up for sale on eBay on two separate occasions. The town has a population of about 18 and has a total acreage of 83. In 2003, the town was bought on eBay but the deal fizzled due to the town’s haggard condition. The town, a former stagecoach hub, is now a sleepy, almost forgotten place. Bruce Krall, an Orange County commercial banker is the current owner of the Bridgeville land parcel. He has put a great deal of effort and energy into repairing the town and preparing it for resale.

5. War-Proof Bunker House

After buying an unused missile silo, realtors Gregory Gibbons and Bruce Francisco converted the space into a full-service war-proof bunker. The bunker is located in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Adirondacks are a perfect location for this type of bunker. After 9/11, the realtors took it upon themselves to create a safe home for a more petrified homeowner. The finished bunker and its attached home was originally listed at $18 million but only earned $2.1 million after being sold on eBay. A pretty significant loss for these two enterprising real estate agents.

4. Albert, Texas

Although the sale of Bridgeville, CA was basically a disaster, the same can’t be said of Albert, TX. In 2003, insurance broker Bobby Cave bought up the town for a steal at $216,000. He resold the town a few years later for $2.5 million, earning Cave almost $2.3 million. Albert is a historic town, a stop on an old stagecoach line and a part of the President’s Ranch Trail. Cave did his part to restore the entire town while keeping its historical integrity intact. Cave’s restoration must have been great, as he greatly increased the value of the town and earned himself a great deal of scratch in the process.

3. Lunch With Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is one of the world’s richest men, so you better believe that his time is valuable. Buffett is an Omaha native who has been a wildly successful businessman, currently serving as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, an American multinational conglomerate holding company. Every year, Buffett auctions off his time to support a local San Francisco church’s program to feed the homeless and hungry. The auction typically receives huge bids, although in 2010 there was a particular anomaly when one bidder put up $2.63 million for the opportunity to meet with Buffett. Hopefully, for that price tag, the winner got some great investment tips from Buffett.

2. Gulfstream II Jet

The private jet is one of the foremost symbols of luxury. Utilized primarily by the mega-rich and mega-famous, the private jet is a sign of money and prestige. In 2001, Tyler Jet (a vendor of business planes) put one of their luxury Gulfstream II jets up for auction on eBay. The jet was used as a part of the site’s launch of their (then) new aviation section. The 12-seat, luxury jetliner was bought by an African-based charter aviation company for the whopping price of $4.9 million. The jets are typically sold for around $1 million, so the purchase is almost illogical.

1. Gigayacht

Private jets aside, the most ballin’ thing someone could possibly buy is probably a yacht. Enter the gigayacht, the 405-foot, Frank Mulder-designed superboat that was purchased on eBay for an almost unconscionable $168 million. The yacht includes a gym, movie theater, spa, elevator, VIP suites, a children’s cabin, guest cabins and a helicopter pad. The yacht was bought by Russian businessman Roman Abramovich, owner of private investment company Millhouse LLC. and the Chelsea Football Club. Abramovich’s net worth is valued at roughly $9.1 billion. He is the 12th richest Russian and the 137th richest person in the world.

A SKETCHY HIDDEN MAP IN YOUR IPHONE TRACKS EVERYWHERE YOU'VE BEEN

big brother iphone

 

It’s no secret that Apple has been collecting location data from users for years. But who knew it was so insanely detailed, or how easily it could ruin your life? The fear is real, people, because there’s a terrifying, possibly sentient map hidden deep inside your Settings menu that plots every location you’ve visited, when, and how often.

What's that mean for you? Well, basically: anyone with access to your phone -- think a suspicious girlfriend/suspicious parent/suspicious Bill Fichtner -- can look it up if they know what to do. Here’s how to find it, and immediately shut it off.

One of the craziest things about this sucker is just how deeply Apple has buried it.

Step 1: From the main Settings menu, select Privacy
Step 2:
Select Location Services
Step 3:
Scroll aaaall the way down to the bottom to System Services
Step 4: 
Scroll about three-quarters of the way down to Frequent Locations. Note: this is where you turn this feature off. Which, just wait for it, you'll definitely want to do.

The next menu reveals the major cities or towns where you've most recently been. They're arranged in descending order of time spent in each, and summarize how many locations you were recorded at within a particular time frame.

Click on one...

... and it pulls up a detailed view of exactly where you've been in the area, complete with plot points and how many visits are recorded in each place. Creeped out yet?
Clicking through even further, you get a specific location display with dates and approximate timestamps of when you've been there. A co-worker's map of the Thrillist office, above, even shows when he takes his lunch breaks. Uh.

Apple says there's no reason to fear your data being tracked since it's "kept solely on your device and won't be sent to Apple without your consent" and is generally only there to "provide you with personalized services, such as predictive traffic routing."

Sure, OK. But the fact that some simple snooping would reveal to your better half that you definitely weren't "working late" the other night should freak you out just the same.

We'll wait right here while you turn off Frequent Locations completely.

The ‘Dildo Selfie Stick’ - Now You Know What To Get Your Girlfriend For Christmas

 

If you saw your wife or girlfriend holding an embarrassing selfie stick you’d do the right thing and smack it out of her hand like it was a grenade that was about to detonate. However this selfie stick might be the only acceptable selfie stick to own in the entire universe.

It’s aptly called the “Dildo Selfie Stick,” and this is not the type of selfie stick that your weird Aunt Opal who goes on a cruise every six months uses. This selfie stick or selfie dick allows ladies to pleasure themselves with a dildo and take photos of their face as they orgasm. Come again?

The contraption allows a dildo to screw on one end, attached to a telescoping rod which holds your phone on the other to capture a woman’s mind-blowing “O” face. Necessity is the mother of invention. “I’m going to gush sweet women juice when I cum to a squirting climax, but first let me take a selfie.”

“It’s the first selfie stick which allows you to, well, stick it,” the woman with sweet bangs in the video announces.

However video seems rather cheeky and might be fake. And even though there being a website, a Twitter and YouTube channel, it appears there is nowhere to purchase this whimsical apparatus. Motherfuckers need a Kickstarter or some shit to penetrate the market and get their product out on the streets. And they need to hurry up because this could be the one Christmas present for all the women in my life.

Only one problem, all the photos are going to be blurry photographs of a headboard.

14 GOOGLE MAPS FEATURES YOU NEVER KNEW EXISTED

It's tough to imagine life before Google Maps... those heady days when people were forced to actually interact with one another to get proper directions. Now it's easier than ever to find your way from Albuquerque to Azerbaijan. But Google has a penchant for taking everything to the next level, and it turns out Maps is capable of a whole lot more than just getting you from Point A to Point B.

To help you become a GMap power user, here are 14 things you probably didn't know you could do with Google Maps.

1. Fly around 3D cities like Superman

If you’ve ever played around with Google Earth, you already know how mesmerizing it is to see top-down satellite images of random places around the world. But when you click on the Earth version of any location in Maps, you can get an even more unique 3D view of landmarks and cityscapes by hitting the “Tilt View” button. It only works on Desktop, but it's probably best to indulge your Superman fantasies from a stationary position.

2. Navigate through big confusing buildings

You know when you're lost inside some behemoth of a building and can't find an exit, and the situation starts to escalate, and you're thinking you may never again see the light of day? Well, Google has been rolling out an indoor maps feature, so at the very least you can find the nearest bathroom. The list is still fairly limited, but a handful of airports, museums, and stadiums around the world have jumped on board.

3. Save maps so you can access them offline

This is a useful trick if you're trying to cut back on your data usage or worried about finding your way with a shoddy signal. Save any part of any map for reference when you're offline -- just follow these simple steps.

4. See what things looked like back in time

Ever wondered how a street has evolved over the last few years? When you search a location and hit Street View, click on the small clock dial in the upper left corner. The pop-up window lets you travel back and see how it looked the past few times the Google Maps van drove by.

5. And track everywhere you've been in the past year

This slightly creepy feature allows you to see a visual history of everywhere you’ve traveled in a given day, month, or year. You can cool your jets about privacy concerns, though, since you need to opt in to Location History for it to work in the first place.

6. Book your next flight

If you’re planning a lengthy trip, tap the airplane icon and Maps will show you how much faster it would be to fly, plus estimated fare and a quick link to available flights -- which may very well be on Spirit, in which case you should probably just drive.

7. See complicated road trips at a glance

For journeys that involve more than one stop, don’t waste time entering in directions from one leg to the next. Instead, add multiple destinations and get a full trip summary. Once you input your initial leg, click the “+” at the bottom left to tack on additional destinations as needed.


8. Save the addresses you use most

If you're entering your home address every time you leave the bar with absolutely no sense of direction, you're doing it wrong. Instead, set defaults for your home or office by following these steps. FYI, you’ll need to enable your Web and App Activity in settings.

9. Get tickets for shows and concerts

Click on any music venue, concert hall, or theater and it’ll display a list of links to upcoming shows or events.

10. Get directions, even if you don't know where you are or where you're going

If you only vaguely know where you’re headed but don’t have a specific address or point of interest in mind, you can right-click any spot and it’ll give you the option to get directions to or from that location. Maybe bring some Kierkegaard or Sarte to read along the way.

11. Track the intensity of your workout

For those of us without a FitBit to track our every waking moment, you can use Maps to calculate exactly how much distance you covered on your morning run. Simply right-click on any beginning point, hit “measure distance,” and it will allow you to plot dots to create a custom route.

12. Immediately launch navigation for quick directions

If you're driving and need turn-by-turn directions stat, just touch and hold the blue train/car/pedestrian and your navigation will initiate immediately.

13. Explore the wonders of the world up close

Too broke to afford your dream vacation this year? Google Street View Treks will treat you to some killer adventures from the comfort of your computer. They've created stunning interactive explorations of some of the most remarkable places on earth including the Galapagos, Giza, the Grand Canyon, and Nepal.

14. Make existing maps better by adding your own details

If you notice a particular area is thin on info and feel like you could contribute something helpful (an unmarked service road, underground attraction, or some other weird little detail), the Map Maker function lets you become a contributor. Just don’t bother adding something bogus, since edits are closely moderated much like Wikipedia’s.

8 GADGETS YOU NEED IF YOU CONSTANTLY LOSE THINGS

If you’re anything like me and can’t remember where you put your glass of water literally five seconds after you poured it, knowing there are real solutions out there should help you rest a little easier. Highly recommended for forgetful space cadets everywhere, these ingenious devices will help you keep track of the important stuff—keys, electronics, pets, and yes, even people.

1. Tile

Price: $70
Tile is a blessing for anyone who just can’t seem to keep up with those damn car keys. Connecting with your phone via Bluetooth, the little tracker clips onto your keychain (or slips into your wallet or glasses case) and will play a loud 90 decibel melody to help you locate them. If you're not within range, the accompanying app shows you a map of where you previously had them so you know where to look. Bonus: it’s also water-resistant.

2. Davek Alert Umbrella

Price: $79
You know what’s worse than getting caught in the pouring rain and realizing you’ve left your umbrella at the office? Nothing, unless you’re also carrying a very important cake at that exact moment. This umbrella will ping you via Bluetooth if you wander more than 30 feet without it, plus the app gives you the daily weather on your smartphone. How very considerate.

3. Bizzby Sky

Price: $TBA
Let’s say you’ve forgotten your keys or something a bit more sensitive like, Oh I don’t know, a flash drive full of tasteful nudes. Bizzby is essentially an on-demand drone service that uses GPS to physically pick up objects and bring them to you. Able to fly up to 400 feet in the air and carry just over a pound, you’ll be able to put your lost valuables out of mind and literally in the hands of a trusty robot.

4. Nest

Price: $249
Vacations shouldn't be hard, but they are. You’re tired, you’re stressed, you left your son home alone and he’s forced to fight off two petty crooks with homemade booby traps. But, worst of all, you’ve left your thermostat on, and your utility bill is skyrocketing faster than you can say “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.” Nest is a genius new take on the old thermostat that can be controlled with your smartphone and automatically turns to an energy-efficient temperature whenever you're gone.

5. Pixie

Price: $69.95
Pixie works by affixing little tracking devices to different objects (your wallet, iPad, remote control... your cat) and keeping track of them with your smartphone. The app creates a map of your apartment and everything you've tagged, allowing you to pinpoint the exact location of multiple gadgets and gizmos using their innovative signaling technology. Just make sure you don't lose your smartphone.

6. MyQ Garage Door Controller

Price: $129.99
I recall many fond memories in which my parents scolded me for driving off without closing the garage door. If you also suffer from this affliction, MyQ Garage Door Controller will check if you left the garage door open, and even allows you to open or close it when you aren't home. The addition of a Wi-Fi, a hub, and the ability to interact with Nest (see above) makes this little doohickey totally worth picking up—plus, you can save yourself the wrath of your parents.

7. Tagg

Price: $79.95
Finding your dog is impossible unless you have a great, juicy piece of steak dangling out of your back pocket, right? Wrong! By way of an unobtrusive little device, you can monitor your pet's surroundings and temperature, track their activity and rest, and receive an alert if they wander outside a designated zone. It’s the next best thing to having a hunk of meat in your jeans.

8. Locca

Price: $82.60
Losing your kid (or someone else's) in a crowded supermarket or shopping mall is one of the scariest things that can happen—save for a rogue comet heading towards earth, or being served with phony child support claims. Locca is a hyper-accurate GPS tracker that can be attached to belts, backpacks, or lanyards to ensure your child or forgetful WWII veteran stays within arm's reach. Not only does it work internationally, but the Locca Phone is able to connect with almost any smartphone or computer out there, and it makes emergency calls as well.

THE 10 COOLEST BULLETPROOF THINGS YOU CAN BUY TODAY

While bullet-resistant tech has been around for a while, unless you're a member of law enforcement, the military, or The Avengers, it may seem tough to get your hands on any.

Turns out that's not quite the case. From clothing to kayaks, there are plenty of bulletproof items you can buy right now. Check these out.

1. Bulletproof top coat

Price: $1,199.99
If we've learned anything from film noir, it's that every single person who has ever worn a classy, expensive top coat has been shot. It's a universal law. Thankfully, you can avoid the big sleep with this offering from Bullet Blocker, a wool/cashmere overcoat which boasts a Kevlar interior liner built to stop rounds as powerful as the .357 Magnum. It's best worn while drinking cheap whiskey and muttering something about a "double-crossing dame."

2. Bulletproof briefcase

Price: $799
You never know when an office brainstorming session will devolve into brain-shattering violence. Be prepared with a faux briefcase that conceals a three-foot-long body armor blanket. Use it as a shield when that weird dude from accounting finally snaps. Saving everyone's ass during the meeting might finally land you that promotion you've been waiting on.

3. Bulletproof pocket square

Price: $150
Surviving a shootout is cool. Surviving in style basically makes you James Bond. This pocket square, awesomely named The Damned, is made from military grade fibers designed to stop bullets. That said, your attacker needs some pretty specific aim to hit it, so please, don't test this product at home. Or elsewhere, for that matter.

4. Bulletproof flight jacket

Price: $849.99
Remember how cool Tom Cruise was in Top Gun? The only way to make Maverick more badass would be to make him bulletproof. Luckily for us, the folks at Bullet Blocker rose to the challenge, delivering this flight jacket whose Kevlar interior can withstand all types of ammunition, should you ever find yourself on a highway to the danger zone. (Sorry.)

5. Bulletproof gun safe (disguised as a couch)

Price: $9,000
We tend to assume that survivalists are all Unabomber types, living in shacks in the woods, scrawling manifestos, and growing hipster beards. Not everyone gearing up for the zombie apocalypse wants to live in squalor though. With the Couch Bunker Safe from Heracles Research Corporation, you can securely conceal your arsenal without screwing over your home's feng shui. Plus, knowing you're sitting on top of a stockpile of guns may be the sweetest way to make beer and football night even more manly.

6. Bulletproof gun safe (disguised as a bed)

7. Bulletproof cowboy vest

Price: $824.99
You may never find yourself in an Old West duel, staring down the barrel of some drunken dude who served you mediocre moonshine at the saloon (that's the plot of every Western, right?), but just in case, this bulletproof cowboy vest protects you from common handgun fire. He's not here to say otherwise, so we can only assume that John Wayne owned at least 10 of them.

8. Bulletproof backpack

Price: $359.99
The people at BulletBlocker know that not everyone in the world is a movie character. Some of us are simply working dudes, or students, resigned to an explosion-less life of trekking to and from our jobs or classes, carrying our daily necessities on our backs. But should your day suddenly turn into the next installment of Die Hard, the bulletproof backpack not only provides protection, but also features compartments to hide weaponry of your own. The coolest way to carry your homework since a Trapper-Keeper.

9. Bulletproof kayak

The ocean can be a dangerous place. When you've got sharks, pirates, and the Kraken to worry about, a sense of security is difficult to come by. The Clear Blue Hawaii Molokinimight give you some peace of mind. Its transparent shell is made from the same material used to create bulletproof glass and fighter jet canopies. Your move, Poseidon.

10. Garrison Bespoke bulletproof suit

Price: $20,000
Elegant. Stylish. Bulletproof. Garrison Bespoke's suit lets you look your best, and live to tell the tale. While it may be out of your price range, for diplomats, politicians, and anyone else who needs to make a good impression without worrying about an assassination attempt, it's actually a practical idea. Actually, maybe it's cheap because a human life is worth more than $20,000. Made with nanotech that allows the entire suit to protect its wearer while remaining 50 percent lighter than Kevlar, it's pretty much something you wouldn't expect to see outside of a spy movie.

And we want it.

12 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW WERE INVENTED BY NASA

NASA deserves a lot of thanks. The space program is the reason we've put satellites in the sky, landed on the moon, and seen Armageddon. But in the constant quest to dominate the stars, the agency has also ended up creating tools and technologies with applications right here on Earth.

In fact, you're probably using some of them right now...

1. Baby formula

We're not baby scientists (nor are we sure that's a thing), but it doesn't take a Dr. Spock, or even a Mr. Spock, to know that infants need nutrition. Luckily, NASA is on the case.

Back in the '80s, NASA researchers were looking into how microalgae could be used on long space trips as a food supply. Their work led to the creation of Formulaid, a food additive found in most baby formulas. The fatty acids in Formulaid are essential for a baby's mental and visual health. We're impressed, even though we now just realized we drank algae as babies.

2. Computer mice

Until we all get those sweet interfaces from Minority Report, the mouse will be the most common way to use our personal computers. And it exists because NASA needed it. With computers being applied to more and more aspects of space flight, money was funneled into a project to make them more easily interactive. The result was the computer mouse.

They probably didn't predict that kids would go on to use them to draw dicks in MS Paint.

3. Comfortable running shoes

The space program has resulted in tremendous achievements for humankind, but it never gets credit for giving Forrest Gump the tools he needed to run across the United States.

After inventing a rubber molding process for astronaut helmets, NASA engineers realizedthat the same principle could be applied to shoes. The NASA technique allowed for the creation of shock absorbers in the bottom of the shoe, which went on to be a common feature in athletic sneakers. So next time your annoying friend insists that those bizarre foot gloves are the superior jogging technology, just remind him that you'll be using space-age technology. Then stop being friends with him.

4. Cell phone cameras

These days, it's not unlikely to assume that you use your phone to take pictures more often than you use it to make calls. You can thank NASA for that one, as well. It's estimated that about one in three cell phone cameras uses technology originally designed for the space program. Astronauts needed to be able to snap high-quality digital images of space, because conspiracy theorists will never be satisfied, but they didn't want to rely on heavy equipment. This led to the development of innovations like CMOS sensors, which allowed NASA to equip its spacecraft with small cameras while still getting high-def images out of them.

Thankfully, the selfie stick had nothing to do with NASA.

5. Ice-resistant airplanes

Ice and planes mix about as well as ice and red wine. In other words, they don't mix at all. Ever. Stop it.

NASA has helped keep us all safer in the sky by developing a number of electronic solutionsfor aircraft facing the dangers of icing, like heating the leading surfaces of the wing. The technologies that have come from these efforts are now in use on everything from commercial airliners to small one-engine planes.

And also on Iron Man.

6. Scratch-resistant lenses

In 1972, the FDA decided that eyeglass lenses should be shatter-proof. 1972 is also the year that The Godfather showed America a dude getting shot in the eye right through his glasses. Coincidence?

Either way, that was the year we got plastic lenses, which were safer, but softer and thus more prone to scratching. NASA scientists, working on a plastic for space helmets, ended up creating just what was needed to fix the problem.

7. Safer highways

You're sitting in a steel death machine hurtling forward at inhuman speeds. One slip-up and it's all over.

It's not re-entry, it's rush hour, and it's a lot safer thanks to NASA. Working to reduce the number of accidents caused by aircraft running off the runway, researchers developed grooved pavement, which channels water off the road, preventing hydroplaning. It's since been used in major highways throughout the country, reducing accidents on slippery highways by almost 100 percent.

Now they just need to tackle dudes who hog the passing lane and we'll be all set.

8. Water filtration

If the ad copy for bottled water is any indication, we love ourselves some clear, clean, "doesn't taste like urine" water. To make sure the astronauts had that luxury, NASA developed water filtration systems for them back in the '70s that used cartridge filters and iodine. Nowadays, these technologies are in wide use, making sure that we all avoid H2O that tastes more like H2No.

(Boom.)

9. Survival blankets

You've crash-landed in the Alaskan wilderness, and Liam Neeson is tragically not with you. Thankfully, you've got one of those lightweight survival blankets with you to keep warm. At least you'll be comfortable when the wolves arrive.

You can take further comfort in the fact that NASA actually invented the material as an insulation for pretty much all of its spacecraft, from satellites to the Apollo lander. In a way, it's even more badass than having Liam Neeson with you.

10. Invisible braces

Thanks to tech like Invisalign, we can now correct our smiles without being picked on by jocks. In fact, we may now be even more hardcore than said jocks, since the material that has allowed for invisible braces was originally developed by NASA for use in missile-tracking technology.

11. Temper foam

Ever slept on one of those memory foam mattresses? If you answered yes, you're a filthy liar. You'd still be on that bed right now, too comfortable to ever want to leave.

Credit that decadent experience to NASA once again. The agency originally developedtemper foam technology to add cushioning to astronaut seats. It didn't take long to realize it could have consumer uses as well, in everything from shoes to football helmets.

And, of course, this classic commercial.

12. Better tires

Radial tires have been around since 1915, but they took a major leap forward whenGoodyear created a material for NASA's Viking parachute shrouds. The new material was so strong that Goodyear realized it would make for the best radial tires yet. Sadly no one has decided to strap spacecraft engines onto our cars too.

Yet. (But almost!)

The 7 Weirdest Remote Controlled Things You Can Actually Buy

Since remote controls were invented to make life easier, some people think everything should have a remote control. While they are very wrong, it won’t keep them from trying to make everything all remote-controlled anyway. Forget your conventional toys, we present the weirdest sh*t people have controlled with a remote control. Take a look:

7. RC Sugoi Mop

From the makers of the irresistible Space Ball flying sphere and the Gomiba Go RC Trash Can, comes the R/C toy we’ve all been waiting for — a mop! The promo video alone says sugoi (wow!). With a handset coming in the shape of a video game controller, you will spend hours cleaning your house and never complain once. It’s like, who are you? Really.

6. Lederhosen

For all you Bavarians looking for a good time with two AA batteries, perhaps the remote controlled Lederhosen fit the bill. Why yodel when this bizarre thing can walk around and do it for you? Wait, you probably want a frankfurter remote control too? Done. Plus it’s only $7. Put down the cow bell and go get it.

5. Tarantula

The perfect gift for the sick f*ck, this RC tarantula is the easy way to make people like you less! Terrorize your co-workers, friends, and girlfriend with this bad boy and pretty soon it will be your only friend, because no one will want to be around the creep with the R/C bug.

4. Beverage/Snack Float

You lazy bastard! Not only can you sit around and get fatter without lifting a muscle, now you can easily get drunk with this remote controlled floating tray! It holds five drinks, so you can get saucy in no time, even if you don’t own a pool. Take it to the neighbors' place when they go out of town! Oh, but what about your nachos? Don’t worry, fat-ass, there's a space for those too! If only this was sent up the Nile instead of Moses, the Bible would have been a much better read!

3. Eyeball Blimp

Sorry, but this one isn't available in stores (and for good reason). This guy thought, "Hey, why not make a disturbing eye blimp in my spare time?" Okay dude. The cool news is, your iPhone or Droid phone can control it! You can store it next to your R/C tarantula.

2. Gutter Cleaner

With a range of 50 feet, this dynamo cleaning device has a cleaning auger that spins at 500rpm, and keeps your dad off your ass because the gutters are clean! That leaves more time for Call of Duty. And besides, it makes one sh*tty chore into a video game. Maybe next time, you’ll even volunteer to do it! (Nah, you probably won't.)

1. Dragon

Okay, how about a miniature jet turbine engine roaring out it’s assh*le at speeds up to 500 mph? We suppose you’ll need it to be powered by Jet fuel too, huh?’ Okay, done. The dragon has all of the steering points of a standard aircraft, including elevators, ailerons, and a rudder, all controlled via a 2.4 GHz remote control. Have at it.

THE COMBAT-READY BATMAN SUIT IS HERE - CRIMINALS ARE SH*TTING THEMSELVES

This is the Batsuit we've always wanted, and the Batsuit we deserve.

They say the night is always darkest before the dawn, and in this case, dawn has fully broken. Thanks to an uber-successful Kickstarter campaign, 21-year-old whiz kid and industrial design student Jackson Gordon (no relation to Commissioner) developed a Batsuit that can stand up to almost anything, aside from bullets.

The finished suit took more than $1,000 worth of funding, weighs 25 pounds, and is made out of impact-absorbing foam, Kevlar, and 1/4" Kydex plating.

10 Weird & Cool Sexual Gadgets

1

SexFit: A pedometer for your penis

It was only a matter of time before wearable technology moved from people's heads and wrists and ventured downstairs. British adult retailer Bondara is leading the charge, with this prototype activity tracker and sex toy. The SexFit is a ring that sits at the base of the penis, trapping blood for better, uh, erections, but it also has an accelerometer and Bluetooth module. That way, your in-and-out statistics will be shared with a companion app that'll tell you your thrust per minute and even the calories you've burned. Oh, and you can even share those figures with your shocked friends on social media. (Source)

2

Sign In Pillowcases: Keep track of all those who sleep in your bed

If promiscuity is your game, the sign-in pillow case is the right fit for you. It's designed to look exactly like a piece of notebook paper and has a sign-in space for those who spend the night or just a few hours. Now you can easily keep track of your sexual conquests! (Source)

3

Wankband: Produce energy by "loving" yourself

The energy crisis could be over! Pornhub has tapped into one of the world's great unused reservoirs of energy. Yep, you guessed right — the furious wrists of internet masturbators.

Ever keen to stay classy, Pornhub has called their gizmo the "Wankband." The site urges users to "create dirty energy," by wearing the Wankband while, ah, self-pleasuring and has urged users to come up with ideas using the hashtag #wankband. The wrist-mounted gadget has a kinetic charger that can be used to power up gadgets such as iPhones.

The Wankband is still in early beta testing, but I must say I loved their slogan: "The first wearable tech that allows you to love the planet by loving yourself." (Source)

4

Lick: An app for practicing oral sex

This app is not just for guys, but for anyone who wants to improve their oral pleasuring skills. Lick is an internet-based smart phone app that helps strengthen your tongue muscles for pleasuring a lady. (Who knew? I always thought the best exercises were squishing Jello between my teeth and blowing bubbles in chocolate milk.)

You just wrap your phone's screen in plastic wrap (or not), and choose one of three exercises: flicking the light switch on and off, turning the pencil sharper, or keeping the ball bouncing. (Source)

5

Little Black Book: Keep track of your conquests just like in the old days

Store all your one-night-stands in this Little Black Book. It's like the old classic black book revamped with a beer rating system. Worried about storing a number on your phone? After a few drinks we all seem to forget that lesson, but help is on hand! Your Little Black Book not only takes those high risk numbers off your phone, but it also comes with a unique pint rating system. You can jog your memory the next time you are tempted to make that call. (Source)

6

The Sex On Canvas Kit

This is a "Love is Art" kit. It comes with a canvas and a bottle of paint. You just douse yourself and your significant other with the body paint, then go at it like animals atop the canvas. When you're done, ART IS BORN (and possibly a baby nine months later).

As you can see from the picture above, these two budding artists were clearly banging like rabbits. Total time in the studio: less than four minutes. Kits start at $60 and go up from there, depending on the canvas and paint color. (Source)

7

Sexcereal: Cereal that makes you better at sex

This is SEXCEREAL, a gender-specific cereal meant to enhance your sexual performance abilities. This breakfast food is made up of granola and other super healthy ingredients that make your privates do stuff better —like sexin'. (Sexcereal is gender specific, so I'm going to caution you to NOT buy the wrong kind.)

Cereal "for him" includes bee pollen, black sesame, wheat germ, and pumpkin seeds. Cereal "for her" has ginger, sunflower seeds, and almonds. (Source 1 | Source 2)

8

S.T. EYE: Colored condoms that detect STDs

The S.T.EYE is a conceptual condom created by Musaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah, students at London's Isaac Newton Academy. How does it work? It detects STDs by changing color. A layer of molecules in the condom would theoretically attach to bacteria and viruses associated with common STDs like herpes, syphilis, and chlamydia. The reaction from said attachment would then cause the condom to glow a certain color, depending on the infection it detected, forming an “inbuilt indicator." Smart!

The craziest part is, the inventors are kids! Just 13 and 14 years old. When I was 13 or 14, I didn't even know what a condom was! (Source | Via)

9

Sex Position Coloring Book

Crayons and coloring are just for kids, aren't they? The Sex Position Coloring Book: Playtime for Couples is the first-ever interactive intercourse guide that partners can color together. The book includes 101 ready-to-color outlines of couples in real sex positions. For some, this will be the only sexual encounter they have that will last longer than 15 minutes. (Buy it Here)

10

Happy Ride: Vibrating bicycle seat cover

This is the second eco-friendly sexual gadget on our list. We are always being told to incorporate more exercise into our daily routines, and cycling to work is an excellent way of doing so.

If you were reluctant to hit the pedals before, this new gizmo could give you all the incentive you need to get on your bike. A firm has launched the Happy Ride—a vibrating seat cover that will make journeys by bicycle a bit more exciting.

An inconspicuous gadget slips over the seat of a bike and incorporates "vibration stimulation" as you ride. It comes with an attached control pocket to raise or lower the vibration rate. The vibration can be turned on and off using the control pad which then tucks into a pocket in the seat cover, allowing you to peddle away uninhibited.

Launched by an adult toy retailer, the Happy Ride seat cover will certainly add a new dimension to riding a bike, though we wonder if the distraction of a vibrating seat might not be a little dangerous on a busy road. (Source)

Operation Drone Rescue - Can He Save It?


10 INFOMERCIAL PRODUCTS THAT ARE ACTUALLY AWESOME

We all watch TV infomercials—learning about the next miracle product that will "change our lives forever," through a pair of half-opened, glazed-over eyeballs. They all seem too good to be true. And they are, because five easy payments of $15.95 is a high price to pay for disappointment.

However, there are some “As Seen on TV” products that actually work. And while it’s impossible to sort through all of them—there are millions—we've found plenty that you might actually like and carry good reviews by Good Housekeeping and Consumer Reports.

So in loving tribute to Billy Mays and all the other collared shirt-clad salesmen, here are 10 of the best infomercial products you can get for your money.

1. Magic Bullet

Price: $49.88
As an owner of the Magic Bullet, I can fully endorse this product without any financial compensation from Magic Bullet or Magic Bullet-employed goons holding a gun to my head. The most surprising thing about this high-speed mixing system is the ease with which it can blend anything. It purees, chops, blends, and can even grind coffee beans. Best part yet? It takes up very little space.

2. Ginsu Knives

Price: $37.55
Consumer Reports loved the Ginsu Knives, claiming they "skewered" the other infomercial competition from Ronco—oh, I see what they did there—and even compared well to powerhouses like Wüsthof. The winning attribute with these knives is that they stay incredibly sharp when faced with meat, vegetables, or your mortal enemies. Please don't stab your enemies. Poison them with the delicious food you cook with the help of these knives!*

*Our lawyer would like us to remind you that this was a joke and you shouldn't kill anyone.

3. Forearm Forklift

Price: $20
Consisting of nothing more than two adjustable heavy-duty nylon straps which are placed underneath the heavy object, pieces of furniture weighing up to 700 pounds can be moved by utilizing your total body strength. Now of course, if you weigh 100 pounds and want to move a monstrous refrigerator, you’re gonna have a bad time. But for moving things like a desk or heavy coffee table, you and a very close friend should invest in the Forearm Forklift.

4. Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

Price: $31.99
Well, this is a cute little fella. With over 73 percent of its reviews on Amazon positive, it’s pretty clear that the Ninja Master Prep is a blender that does what it’s supposed to do and more. One particular customer praised its ability to make “refried beans...smoothies and sauces.” Then they launched into a whole thing about frozen fruit and coconut milk, but at that point, I was about to drown in my own saliva. Consumer Reports also said it was "good in overall performance!"

5. Lint Lizard

Price: $12.11
If you have a fear of freak dryer lint fires (and maybe you should, because thousands get sparked each year) then the Lint Lizard is for you. It’s advertised as a magic wand for dryers, able to collect bits of dust and lint that your average lint collector and meek little human hands can’t reach. The Lint Lizard can actually remove double the amount of lint when attached to your dryer, says Consumer Reports. Kiss your dreams of a lint-fueled inferno goodbye!

6. PedEgg

Price: $10
There’s nothing sexy about feet, unless you’re really into feet, then everything about feet is sexy. Removing calluses and dead skin, though? Universally unsexy. However, the PedEgg actually works better than the standard pumice stone treatment. I think this thing should have been called the “Ped-o-File,” but I can also see why someone would vote against that name.

7. Oxiclean

Price: $8.18
Ah, one of the classic As Seen on TV products! Unlike its counterparts—the Snuggie and SlapChop—this stuff actually works incredibly well. From our own experiences as well as those of everyone who's ever used this miracle stain-fighter, this is what you want to buy if you have particularly dirty kids. (Who are we kidding? All kids are dirty.) Oxiclean is,interestingly enough, especially good at fighting against grass stains...which any parent can relate to—except mine. I was an "indoor kid."

8. Twin Draft Guard

Price: $6.90
By solving the problem of drafty doors through the use of a two-inch-thick foam tube, the Twin Draft Guard keeps out mean ol' Uncle Winter from getting inside. Before purchasing this product, it is suggested that you do your homework and measure the size of your door as well as the size of the gap. Though, these guys are pretty easy to trim if it's not a perfect fit.

9. Microwave Pasta Boat

Price: $16.89
One of the personal favorites around the office, the Pasta Boat takes an already easy-to-make food like pasta and makes it even easier with a built-in ​strainer lid and bonus steamer. Put the pasta in, add water, throw it in the microwave, call it a day. Just make sure you add water—our prized staff photographer forgot that part and almost burned his house down.

10. NuWave Pro Plus Oven

Price: $114.51
Can you cook a 10-pound frozen turkey in a few hours with your oven? No? Didn't think so. According to Time, the NuWave uses infrared conduction and convection cooking to make quick, easy, and hot meals in a shockingly short amount of time. You can cook, barbecue, roast, grill, bake, broil, dehydrate, steam, and air fry various foods with ease.

Star-Wars-Darth-Maul-Lightsaber-Room-Light-

Star Wars Darth Maul Lightsaber Room Light    $39 USD

The Darth Maul Lightsaber Room Light is an officially licensed Star Wars product, and admittedly one of the best gifts you can give to a Star Wars fan. There’s nothing quite thrilling in the entire Star Wars series as apprentice Darth Maul’s epic battle with Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi using this unique double-side lightsaber. It was the most powerful weapon the dark side used, but now you can use “the Force” to make your own Darth Maul lightsaber and bring your room back from darkness to a warm and bright glow. Besides, it’s a fun project created under Uncle Milton’s Star Wars Science brand to help kids learn. The lightsaber room light can be rotated into horizontal or vertical positions, which makes it easy to install even in tight spaces.

 

Star-Wars-Death-Star-Cookie-Jar

Star Wars Death Star Cookie Jar    $55 USD

The Death Star Cookie Jar is an official Star Wars product, and you may not use it to fire a deadly planet-killing superlaser. What you can do is use it as a space for stationing crunchy cookies or as a weapon of mass cookie distribution.  The glazed ceramic material used to construct the Death Star ensures your culinary creations remain crunchy and won’t go all chewybacca on you. Unlike the flawed original, this Death Star works perfectly with a twist lid to open it up and a flat base that ensures it won’t roll off and knock out Yoda accidently.

 

Star-Wars-First-Edition-STREET-by-50-On-Ear-Headphones

Star Wars First Edition STREET by 50 On-Ear Headphones    $199 USD

Available in 4 exclusive styles that could be an overwhelming gift for Star Wars fans, the STREET by 50 On-Ear Headphones are more than just a beauty. Designed to bring out the awesomeness in music, these headphones are extremely comfortable as well.

With a handy pair of meat wranglers at one end and the weapon’s iconic hilt at the other, Star Wars BBQ tongs are the perfect bit of kit for any civilised chef.  A transparent red plastic cover keeps the prongs together when not in use and gives the utensil that iconic space opera look.

 

Star-Wars-Lightsaber-Thumb-Wrestling-Kit

Star Wars Lightsaber Thumb Wrestling Kit    $13 USD

Everyone is a Star Wars fan to some degree. If you’re geeky enough to own a lightsaber, it puts you in an exclusive club of Star Wars groupies. But your Midi-chlorian count must be off the charts if you have the lightsaber thumb-wrestling game. Put simply, you’re strapping tiny lightsabers to your thumbs, which will then fight each other in an epic battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The force is strong in this thumb!

 

Star-Wars-Monopoly

Star Wars Monopoly   $85 USD

Play the classic game of Monopoly infused with the Force or ruled by the Dark Side. This masterful Star Wars Saga Edition Monopoly Board Game includes characters from all 6 Star Wars movies, with settlements and cities instead of classic houses and hotels. Sith and Jedi cards take the place of Chance and Community Chest. The Force side includes Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda game pieces; the Dark Side includes Darth Maul, General Grievous, the Emperor and Darth Vader. Who will become the ultimate master? The Saga begins here.

 

STAR-WARS-MOOD-LIGHTS

Star Wars Mood Lights    $65 USD

These Star Wars Mood Lights will create just the ambience you need when you’re crossing over from the land of the living room to the dark side of your bedroom. If the force is strong in you, you can get Darth Vader to emit a menacing red glow. The light itself is powered by the force of five battery operated environment-friendly LED lights, and has no messy wires or cables that a young Jedi Knight might trip over. Darth Vader can always be accompanied by a loyal Stormtrooper light that helps you on the path towards the dark side and dreams of epic battles with light-sabers. The Star Wars Mood Lights are officially licensed by Lucasfilm, so you could soon be holding Darth Vader captive as a collectible item.

 

Star-Wars-Pancake-Molds

Star Wars Pancake Molds   $23 USD

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a Jedi Kitchen Master used the Force to create three pancake molds in honor of his favorite galactic hero and villains: Yoda, Darth Vader and a stormtrooper. Use these molds to add whimsy and fun to your next pancake breakfast. Set of three Star Wars nonstick steel pancake molds in Yoda, Darth Vader and stormtrooper shapes. Easy to use: place on a preheated griddle and pour in your batter; once the first side has set, remove the molds and flip the pancakes. Handles facilitate lifting and fold down for storage.

 

Star-Wars-Yoda-Car-Decals

Star Wars Yoda Car Decals    $30 USD

The Star Wars Yoda Car Decals Kit from FanWraps will turn your car into a Jedi TIE Fighter. You will be part of the epic fight against the Dark Side when you have Yoda leaping across your hood, lightsaber in hand, ready to do battle. It also officially inducts you into the Jedi Order, because you now have the Jedi Order Symbol decal too. All this coupled with the bonafide Star Wars logo in green makes you not just a geek or a Star Wars fan, but a true Jedi Knight in whom the force is strong.
