You can’t make this stuff up. Subtle Butt ($12 for 5) are antimicrobial activated charcoal pads that stick on to the inside of underwear to neutralize odors that pass through it. Who knows if it actually works. I certainly can’t test it as I don’t fart. This product raises so many questions that I had to list them. How did this product actually go from a bad idea to a real product? How did this product get over 300 reviews on Amazon? Who came up with the tagline “takes the bad part out of the fart”? Is...

The Jim Beam Smart Decanter ($35) pours whiskey on voice command. The voice is from Fred Noe a 7th generation master distiller at Jim Beam. It won’t give you the weather like other voice assistants but it will give you cheeky replies and of course bourbon. “…the decanter includes a sleek compartment for bourbon storage and voice command capabilities. Unlike other smart home devices, “JIM” offers groundbreaking shot-pouring functionality that allows legal drinking age consumers to serve up a drink without...

This one just had me laughing while reaching for my credit card. Not sure why I need my eggs cooked into the shape of a hotdog, but I do. In this case a video does this product, the Rollie Egg Cooker, better justice. Check it out after the break. (more…)

Another strange one from the “you can’t make this stuff up” section. Apparently Dain Yoon has too much time on her hands (get it) and made this creepy set of selfie fingernails. The hair makes them look like mini voodoo dolls to me. Either way, I hope this doesn’t become a trend. More pictures of these selfie fingernails with hair after the break. ...

Apparently this is a “thing” as there are multiple manufacturers of this car tent umbrella gadget. I have yet to see one of these car tent things in the real world. For around $239 you can have a remote controlled umbrella for your car. You simply put it on the roof of your car, hit the button on the remote, watch it unfold, then strap it down. Or you could buy a car cover for $20. I’m just saying.   ...

The FrontRow Wearable Lifestyle Camera ($399) is a tad less cringey than the Google Glasses. I am not sure I would want to have a conversation with someone wearing a camera/microphone pointed at me the entire time. I guess I am not the target customer because I am sure there are voyeuristic folks who will love the idea of the FrontRow camera. The FrontRow Pendant camera can create about two hours...

The resident iRobot a-hole CEO, Colin Angle, recently made a statement that the company may begin selling customers house floor plans. Specifically it mentioned selling to Amazon, Apple, and/or Google. This assumes they are even buyers. Let me back-up a bit. Apparently the newer iRobot Roomba’s scan and map the inside of your home. We all assumed this was just so this robotic vacuum cleaner could navigate the house and contents in a more efficient manner. Makes sense, right? Well in a truly douchey fashion iRobot is now pondering...

If you have ever had to deal with a mouse or rat infestation you know how frustrating it can be. They are expert breeders and multiply quite quickly. With every problem comes a multitude of solutions, this one might be the most unique. The “Walk The Plank Mouse Trap” ($25) is similar to the way pirates executed traitors and the like. In this case the plank is mounted on a bucket, with a  ramp to the plank. Once the critter makes its way to the end of the plank they are doomed. The plank is supported by a magnet but can’t...

This one almost seems like a gag. You know – like the tug toner video infomercial (posted after the break as well). The Squat Magic claims to give its users a round and lifted bottom and sexy toned legs. Sure. Why not? Awkward video after the break. ...

Yep, that pretty much sums up the INGSDT-3000. You can buy yours here. ...
