Be one of the first to sport this new line of shirts from Fluent Apparel. Designer Matt Convente, who decided to put his inner-most thoughts onto posters for a senior project in college, has now put them on t-shirts.
Oddly enough, you might find that a lot of his thoughts are ones you’ve had yourself. You’ve heard about wearing your heart on your sleeve? Now, wear it right smack on the front of your shirt. Silently announce things like “I don’t like ordering coffee in Italian,” or “I am awful at remembering names,” or “You think I’m listening to music, but I’m listening to you,” or “Maury Povich is my guilty pleasure.” of course accompanied by appropriate images.
Not all of these are available yet, as the line is still awaiting a full launch. For now there are two designs for sale on the Fluent website, and you can sign up for a newsletter to alert you to when you can go ahead and buy all of them. The shirts are available for men and women, in three different sizes, and are $20 each.
So, there’s an awesome fight about to go down at the bar you’re in. You’re pretty sure this dude’s going to get knocked the ef out and this would go perfectly on Break.com’s main page.
However, a camera in either of those guys’ faces might result in them joining forces in the joint kicking of your ass. What do you do? There is an answer to this conundrum: the Spy Camera Watch, in all its James Bond glory, allows you to record video covertly for whatever reason you can come up with.
Let’s face it; the secret camera in a watch is pretty much the definition of awesome gadget. It records video at a resolution of 640×480 at 20 frames per second, with a built in microphone for audio. The camera can also take still pictures, and comes with 8GB of memory. It has a rechargeable battery you can plug into your laptop (PC or Mac) via USB port.
It’s pretty cool when new technology can pay homage to its predecessors. Nostalgia seems increasingly important to our generation, and here to help remind you where you came from is infectious.com’s retro vinyl skins.
These skins are applicable to iPhones, iPods, and laptops alike, and infectious has recruited artists from around the world to submit artwork for the skins. They’re voted on (like Threadless), and the most popular ones have been put into production. Naturally, the retro ones rose to the top. Turn your iPod touch into a cassette player. Your iPhone can become a Gameboy, complete with buttons on the front. A laptop is now a boom box; throw that thing on your shoulder, put on some MC Hammer pants, and blast A Tribe Called Quest from your iTunes. It’s 1994 all over again.
The skins vary in price and size, and can all be found at infectious.com
Get out your credit cards. We’ve got the perfect, no-brainer gift for your special lady (and kind of for you). The iPanties combine your two favorite things: technology and lingerie, without embarrassing trips to the emergency room.
Anyone who has an iPhone knows how they’re greeted with a “Slide to Unlock” screen when they go to activate the device. Imagine that same sexy message every time you go to activate your girlfriend’s, well, you know what. Kind of puts the G-spot in the 3G. Bonus: Women with a good sense of humor will enjoy the iPanties as much as you will, what with their high-quality cotton, comfy elastic trim, and thong coverage, ensuring a perfect fit and making them feel sexier than ever. There was no app for that last time we checked.
The makers keep it simple, offering them in black and white, small, medium, or large. Sorry, fellas, there’s no men’s version… But that would be a bit creepy, anyway, especially if you put them on backwards. They go for $12 each and you can purchase them at http://ipanties.weebly.com/
Tired of all those shirts with just numbers on them? You’re #87, huh? What team do you play for again? The American Eagles? Oh, yeah, you guys beat the GAP and went on to lose to the Aeropostales in three, right? Tough luck.
How about a shirt that’s different? A shirt that shows you’re not just a number or a joke. Graphic designer Stijn van der Pol’s new line of “Self-Editing T-Shirts” will make people look at you differently, but not in the Hot Topic “Please, look at me differently” kind of way. The shirts are designed with two messages: a stated one, and one that requires a little more searching by piecing together the words or letters that aren’t crossed out to say something totally different.
It’s a fresh conceptualization of the message tee, and a great way to pick up chicks once they’ve invested a little brain-power in reading your shirt. It doesn’t hurt that the shirts look good, either. You can order these and other Stijn van der Pol apparel at http://www.thisissaf.com/
If you’re going to put something in your mouth and pull the trigger, it should probably be one of these. The Trigger Mugs are for those Second Amendment enthusiast who just can’t take his fingers off the trigger.
Or just for somebody looking for a little something different in their coffee cup, such as the illusion of holding a lethal weapon. You start drinking out of one of these around the office and suddenly you’ll find people being a lot more polite around you. And think how bad-ass you’ll look compared to the plethora of #1 Dad and/or Dilbert mugs that surround you.
The porcelain mugs go for $16.00 each and come in white or black, with platinum or gold-glazed triggers. And of course there is a safety-catch… You know, to help avoid pretend accidentally shooting somebody. That would be tragic.
Cold stones aren’t just for eating cake batter ice cream and listening to insecure teenagers sing ridiculous songs to you. Now they are for your whiskey, which is undeniably cooler.
Some people like to savor their drinks. If you’re a whiskey fan, then this probably applies to you. Unfortunately, the longer you savor it, the more watered down it becomes. This is due to a process scientists call “melting” in which ice returns to its liquid form. Not only is this process of “melting” causing an uproar about rising sea levels and the end of the world, it’s also diluting your drink.
With the On The Rocks Whiskey Stones, you can take melting ice completely out of the equation. Just pop them in your freezer for a few hours, then into your glass. Pour your drink, and enjoy. At $19.95, they make a great gift for any person who enjoys actually tasting the spirit of their choice. If only we can figure out how these can stop global warming…
Two things a man may take the most pride in: grilling and his tools. The two worlds have finally combined with the new Salt and Pepper Hammers. No, this isn’t a collaboration of early 90’s hip-hop artists, these are the latest in grilling technology designed specifically to make you feel more manly.
This is what Thor uses on his steaks. No more “sprinkling” or “lightly dusting” your burgers. Where’s the fun in that? It’s time you forcefully hammered the flavor into your meat like you were hammering the final nail into your newly built home (of meat). Think of your grandchildren speaking of you proudly: “My grampa built this house with his own two hands. He also seasoned his flank steaks with hammers.”
The long handles are perfect for keeping your very flammable hands away from the fire of the grill, but are removable for occasions requiring subtlety. It’s like when Superman put back on his Clark Kent glasses. But you’ll know what they really are. You’ll know. The hammers are sold together and go for $20.00.
So you know how in most states it’s against the law to be using your phone while driving? This is one big “F you” to all those states. Now using the iPhone Racing wheel, you’re using your phone in order to drive.
Brought to you by CTA digital, this wheel brings those racing games to a whole new level of reality on your iPhone or iPod touch. Let the people around you know you’re not just passing time before your next meeting; this is a passion of yours and is to be taken seriously… At least until your roommate potentially ruins your high score by texting you that you’re out of toilet paper.
The steering wheel comes with a suction cup to stick on a table, desk, or chair in front of you (or maybe make it ultra-realistic and stick it to the dashboard of your car; just make sure you’re in your driveway not in the carpool lane when you do so). It comes equipped with a bunch of adapters to fit the iPhone 2G, 3G, and 3GS, as well as the iPod Touch and iPod Touch 2G, so basically the only thing this doesn’t work on is your grandmother’s rotary phone… but we hear they’re working on that model.
Everything these days comes with variety. You have thousands of choices in every aspect of your life each day. So why do most light bulbs give you a choice of only three settings: Might As Well Be Off, Standard Wattage, and Retina Melting?
This puts you at a severe disadvantage for mood-setting in your pad. Imagine inviting a girl over a few times and always having the same scented candle, the same type of wine, the same song playing on repeat on every single occasion. You need to switch things up. You need this Multi-Color LED Light bulb.
This light bulb is capable of changing through dozens of color and brightness combinations. The bulb has sixteen different colors to choose from with four transitioning effects – flash, strobe, fade, and smooth. And switching between the combinations is easy with the provided remote control; if you’re getting busy on the couch and need to change the mood from a cool turquoise to a passionate red, it’s just a click away. It goes for $39.99 and conveniently fits in any standard light bulb socket.
