    Cinnamon Bun Oreos Possibly Coming Soon

    The next wave of novelty Oreo insanity comes not straight from the source at Nabisco but from a photo of evidently-completed Oreo packaging for a number called Cinnamon Bun Oreos. The photo has been making the rounds on social media (you can see it above), but an official statement from Nabisco is hopefully still to […]

    X2 Sport Underwater Jet Pack From S.C.P. Marine Innovation

    The new iPhone came out recently but if you ask me, the most exciting tech innovation to hit the internet this week is something a lot less practical: The X2 Sport Underwater Jet Pack from S.C.P. Marine Innovation. That’s right, the X2 Sport Underwater Jet Pack features two wrist-mounted (!!) Hydra thrusters that can send […]

    Mykita MVO Eyeglasses: Perfectly Customized to Your Face

    Finding just the right pair of glasses for your face is in literal terms an impossible task, which is why most of us end up settling for the third or fourth pair we can tolerate in the store and making do with that. But if you’re just too picky to abide such an arrangement, a […]

  • Skarp Laser Razor: Shave With A Real Laser

    Skarp Laser Razor: Shave With A Real Laser

    It’s been almost two years since this “laser-guided razor” was written about in these pages, and back then I remember having the obvious thought that it would be even cooler if you could actually shave with a laser, rather than just guiding a conventional razor with one. At that time I didn’t even know such […]

    Nike, like most other athletic brands, can tend to focus on the superhuman athletes among the human race for its advertising campaigns, despite the fact that the vast majority of its customer base are not going to be in that class of accomplishment.

    Netflix Switch Unveiled at World Maker Faire (Video)

    If you have a Netflix account, you know that it takes a lot more than a TV and an internet connection to create perfect (dare I say it) “Netflix and chill” conditions.

    A.1. Halloween Whopper: Black-Bunned Burger Coming to America

    Much like Godzilla before it, Burger King‘s inexplicable black buns are coming to the United States after having laid waste to Japan. It’s the A.1. Halloween Whopper, a (hopefully) limited-time stateside offering from Burger King. If you like A.1. Steak Sauce (actually, it’s just A.1. Sauce now, but I’m a classicist at heart), the A.1. […]
