It’s hard these days to find time to work out with so many great video games out there and pizza places to sample. Or maybe you’re just out of the house a lot, at the office, or spend ridiculous amount of time stuck in traffic.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be doing something productive in that time? Wouldn’t it be nice to get a few reps in for your biceps? Lifting your Egg McMuffin to your face doesn’t count. Well this guy Sang hoon Lee decided it would be ideal to have some portable weights that were easy enough to carry that you could take them anywhere. Then he took it a step further. The Digital Portable Dumbbell is slim and easy to handle, and, get this, can digitally change its own weight. Just set the amount of pounds you’re fit to lift and a small ball inside the dumbbell will adjust its revolutions accordingly, changing the weight of the thing. Yeah, we’re not sure how that works either… If they were called Magical Portable Dumbbells, we wouldn’t think twice. Regardless, you can now carry any amount of weight wherever you want without hassle–even while playing those video games or eating that pizza. It’s the best of both worlds. Find more about the Digital Portable Dumbbell here.
Ever walk into a library or a coffee shop with your laptop, open it up, and realize you are one of about eighteen identical-looking laptops in about a twenty foot radius? It doesn’t even matter if you’re a Mac or PC.
There’s somebody else in there who you could easily mix up your indistinguishable laptops with, which would be completely inconvenient, and perhaps a great inciting incident for that screenplay you’ve been meaning to write. Regardless, here’s a chance to discern yourself form the rest, and in way that keeps is classy (you were thinking writing your name on a piece of masking tape and sticking it on there, weren’t you?) Iamhumannow.com is offering a Classic Collection of laptop covers that includes four “timeless textile patterns and weaves.” You know the easily recognizable, nothing-you-haven’t-seen-before styles that would be “playing it safe” apparel-wise, but since they’re on your laptop will be totally bad-ass. These are the Red Plaid (pictured), the Glen Plaid, the Denim, and Micro Gingham. This is classy stuff; you’re going to be turning some heads with these. Each goes for $30.00 and can be found here.
Black and white is a thing of the past. If TV stuck to black and white how would we see the shade of the Jersey Shore kids’ fake tans? If print news never came in color, the Funny Pages would seem a lot less funny. See?
Even Oreos have started dabbling in hues to the classically white crème filling–as long as it remains delicious, we‘re for it. So with everything being upgraded to color, why are most headphones only offered in the typical black or the standard-iPod white? Come on. You’re better than that. Karmaloop.com knows that and is offering a line of Urbanear Headphones in two different styles: The Tanto and The Plattan and more colors than a Crayola box: light blue, navy, purple, pink, yellow, chocolate, army, salad… You get the picture. The headphone are compatible with any and all mp3 players, and come equipped with a mic and remote compatibility with your iPhone, Blackberry, HTC, and/or Nokia. The Urbanear Headphones can be found for $40 to $60 and you can pick up a pair here.
No, this isn’t a bed specifically designed for you to eat chili in, though that’d interesting as well. The ChiliBed is for anyone who’s felt that the other side of the pillow was either too cool or not cool enough.
For those that have spent a night trying to fall asleep on what feels like a hot skillet, or tossing and turning like you’re on a Cold Stone tablet. It’s hard to fall asleep when you’re either too hot or too cold. The inventor behind the ChiliBed, Todd Youngblood, realized this, and luckily came from a long line of bed innovators. His answer was a mattress that heats and cools its coils with water and keeps you sleeping in the temperature just right for you. And if you have a partner shacking up next to you and you differ largely on what temperature sleep-time should be, as men and women so often do, the dual ChiliPad allows you to customize either side of the mattress to each bed partner’s liking. So that saves you an argument right there. The makers of the ChiliBed also point out that using their product will help you cut down air conditioning costs quite a bit. And to top it all, the ChiliBed is environmentally friendly, made of 100% soy (which we were not aware was remotely possible either). Get yours here.
You gotta love your lady every day. Yeah, thought you might need a friendly reminder from your friends at Made Mail. We’ve got something for you that just might work, especially if your special lady friend is a tad on the geeky side.
Roses, chocolates, jewelry are all fine and dandy, but those are clearly last ditch efforts by bad boyfriends who forgot Sunday and had no time to think outside the box. Here’s a gift that is original and cute enough to at least win you some points with the girl: the Locked On Proximity Sensing Shirt. The shirts should be purchased as a pair – a male and a female most typically, but it will work with same genders in case you’re involved in a bromance or two. The sensor decals on the shirts will stay quiet… Until the person wearing the other shirt in the pair gets within a few meters of you. The radar on the two shirts will suddenly lock and detect one another, lighting up. How about that? A shirt that detects when your soul mate is near. You and your girl can wow your friends, or make them barf, of which either may be your intention, both outcomes satisfactory. You can buy the shirts as a pair for $40.00 here.

What if we told you that right now you could purchase exact replicas of any of Indiana Jones’ accessories, which would you pick? You said the hat, didn’t you? Okay, let’s face it, this day and age it’s hard to pull it off.
The brown fedora doesn’t work if you’re not a sexy archaeologist/professor circa World War II (even Indy himself wasn’t wearing it as well come the time of the Cold War, crystal E.T skulls, and CGI monkeys). So what’s it going to be? The whip? Honestly, what could you possibly do with a whip besides hurt yourself? It’s his boots, okay? You can buy his boots. And you should because they are awesome. Offered by J.Crew via century-old custom shoemaker Alden, each pair is delicately hand-crafted leather with moc stitching around the toe and a stained welt, perfect for outrunning gigantic boulders, traversing rickety rope bridges over gator-infested ravines, and kicking Nazis in the face. Be warned, though: there is a limited supply and they will probably go fast. Each pair is $450.00, so you may have to steal a golden idol or two and throw them up on eBay to afford it, but it will certainly be worth it when you’re confronted with an adventure and finally have the footwear for it. Check them out here.
So you need to cover up your macBook or macBook Pro. For a few reasons. One, you just know at some point you’re going to drop that thing on the ground shattering it into a million tiny pieces.
Or your water bottle in your bag is going to spill all over it, short-circuiting the thing. Or some jerk hits it with a hammer. There’s no telling what can happen. Also, if you’re traveling with it and leave it in your car for a potty break, as soon as the wrong person sees that famous Apple logo, it’s as good as gone. You need some insurance. How about a disguise that protects your laptop from all the aforementioned dangers AND looks damn cool doing it? The BookBook is what you’ve been looking for. The hardback leather case and padded interior work perfectly for absorbing hard blows, like the aforementioned uncalled for hammer, or the water looking to drown your baby. And besides that, it looks like an ancient important book of spells or something. And, no two BookBook are alike. Each one is hand crafted so you will for sure stand out. The BookBook comes in Classic Black or Vibrant Red and goes for $79.99. You can purchase one here.
