Tesla Autopilot Buddy

This magnetic gadget tricks the Tesla Autopilot system in to thinking that the driver has their hands on the wheel. Why would you want to do this? Well, the short answer is so that you can let the Tesla do the driving without having the autopilot system shutoff when your hands aren’t on the steering wheel. No need to over think this one, it is a bad idea. I hope this crafty inventor has a good legal team.

If you re still sold on this overpriced gadget ($199) head on over to the manufacturers website. Video of this device in action after the break. (more…)

There haven’t been too many exiting gadgets hitting the market lately so it has come to this – Earthworm Jerky ($15). Yep, it is a real thing. Perfect for your buddy who prides himself/herself on eating just about anything. The earthworm jerky is from Rhode Island and is seasoned with red chili, lime, sugar, park, garlic, and onion powder. Umm, no thanks. ...

Maybe the title should be “do your job”! I am sure pilots are doing all kinds of things in the cockpit that would scare passengers if they only knew. Examples include; playing video games on their iPads, reading newspapers, and taking turns to get some sleep. I get it… but there is an old ancient Estonian saying that goes something like this – “You can pee in the swimming...

This is the perfect gift for your enemy or friend (with a good sense of humor) that likes doing jigsaw puzzles – the Micro Pure Hell Jigsaw Puzzle ($20). These tiny puzzles (around 10 x 15-inches) come in black and white and are made by Beverly of Japan. The part I find hilarious is the bit...

Boston Dynamics Spot Mini Robot

This Boston Dynamics robotic dog creature is the stuff of nightmares. This version, the Spot Mini, is smaller, quiter, and works with other devil robot dogs to solve problems. In other words I will be having nightmares for quite a while.

The End Is Near

Watch the video and be prepared to becreeped out. The end is near. Video of the Boston Dynamics Spot Mini after the break.


Spoiler alert – this is a real product. Someone had the idea and got all the way to a real product without being talked out of it by friends and family. Or they are a closet pimple popping type of person. Either way I am amazed. The Pop It Pal ($20) is a piece of silicon with fifteen fake pimples. It is available in dark and light skin tones and comes with 3-ounces of refill pimple puss and a refill tool. I prefer syrup

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...

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”...


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. ...
