Malaysia has a very strong economy. Sadly, the same cannot be said about the countries zoos where animals are kept in tiny, often dirty enclosures, with little to no attention and care. One of the animals that has gained attention in these zoos is Shirley the Orangutan, who has somehow picked up a nasty nicotine addiction.
There are almost a gazillion iPod docks out there, in numerous shapes and sizes. But never have we seen a toilet roll dispenser become an iPod dock, and we see no reason for a dock like that either. Well, unless you want a bit of music to accompany the poo poo. It has four high performance moisture free speakers that apparently play such good music that the dock currently is sold out.
Yes its freaky and quite similar to head movement of ghosts in poorly made horror movies. For Alexander though, it is his super flexible spinal column that does the trick.
A team of Hamburg based artists created this series of photo-manipulations. The idea is simple, interchange faces of kids and the adults they are playing with, but the effect is quite weirdly lasting. About Face project uses images from photographer Paul Ripke.
As weird products go, the butt mug stands right with some of the kinkiest things around. Nothing can say good morning better than drinking out of an ass-shaped mug. There’s one way they could have made this thing worse (or better, depending on how you look at it), which is by shifting the drinking point towards the a-hole. Pervert! Costs $13.
In some different dimension, this removable windshield and roof system would actually serve to protect the bicyclist from bad weather. In this world, the poor cyclist won’t stand a chance again gusts of wind, and will have to deal with the weird appendage limiting visibility.
Body Modification’s got new style. Okay, this corset piercing thing may not really be new, but it seems to be getting popular fast. Apparently, people love to have hoops going through there skin, and threading them with ribbons. You know, for the classy formal look.
While the world is thinking of mind controlled robots and computers, it is obvious the technology will also find place in some weirder and previously never thought of applications. Who knew someone wanted mind controlled cat ear add-ons like these from Japanese company Neurowear. The ears go erect when the wearer is focussed on something or thinking intently, and relax as soon as the wearer relaxes. Yes, that’s about all the action, but do not underestimate the power of kitty ears, for something tells me that they will sell well.
Sunscreens and shades are so passe when you can cover your face in glass that makes it look like you came from a hard day of arc welding. Made out of the same material as luxurious eyewear, the giant glasses almost cover the entire face. They keep the sun away, the face safe, and the wearer looking like a weirdo. Something tells me many people won’t have any problems with the weirdo part, as long as the product works as advertised.
Rejoice, lovers separated by distance, and the pervy perversons wanting more out of internet sex chat. The device may sure be tacky, but then kisses sometimes manage to say a lot more than words could ever manage to get across. Besides, distance is the worst enemy of lovers. Japan’s Kajimoto Research Laboratory has come up with a straw like device that can apparently capture the essence of a kiss and transfer it over the internet to be repeated by a similar device at the other end. You have to “kiss” the gadget and it will apparently get the kiss across, together with the manner of breathing, tongue moistness and the gross feeling of kissing a writhing plastic straw.
