Selfie Spoon – Society hits a new low

Selfie Spoon helps you take selfies during breakfast...WTF?!

Selfie Spoon: So US breakfast brand Cinnamon Toast Crunch has introduced the ‘Selfie Spoon’, a selfie stick with a spoon handle for taking selfies while eating cereal…WTF?! It seems the manufacturer, General Mills, is also offering a limited number of the devices for free each day, with the purchaser only having to pay shipping costs – yippee! Because we’ve always wanted to see photos of people with crusty sleep in their eyes and breakfast food stuff caught in their teeth first thing in the morning. We weep for the future…

McWhopper – This is the best thing ever!

McWhopper is Burger King's mashup proposal to Macca's

McWhopper: Although Macca’s seem to have rejected the idea, Burger King were putting it out there by sending a collaboration proposal to McDonald’s to create the McWhopper, a mashup between the Whopper and the Big Mac, the two most iconic burgers in the history of crap food. Although the McWhopper from these giants of fast food was to be sold only on 21st September 2015 during the International Day of Peace, Macca’s have poo poo’d the concept which is a shame – that baby would of been tasty! Check out the concept vid below. Love it! 🙂

Dismaland Bemusement Park Trailer

Dismaland Bemusement Park gets its own promo vid

Dismaland Bemusement Park: So on the back of its opening, Banksy has released the official trailer for his Dismaland Bemusement Park art installation which highlights several pieces Banksy curated from more than fifty artists around the world, collectively providing a dark and decayed view of theme parks and commercial recreation. Love it!! 🙂

Dismaland is a satirical group exhibition inspired by Disneyland

Dismaland: So we lost our shit when we saw street artist Banksy had finally unveiled Dismaland, a satirical group exhibition inspired by Disneyland. Dismaland brings together many artists from around the world in a giant parody of our consumer society as seen through a trashy, decaying theme park. After rumours and first photos began popping up on the web, the Dismaland project released an official website presenting a map of the park, but also the list of artists including Damien Hirst, Josh Keyes, Escif, Axel Void, Brock Davis, Espo, Mike Ross and of course Banksy. The Dismaland exhibition, located in the Weston-super-Mare in the UK, is open from 22nd August until 27th September 2015. Amazeballs! – LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE  🙂

SpinChill – Drinking just got a whole lot better!

SpinChill quickly chills bottles & cans by spinning them in ice

SpinChill: We can’t believe we didn’t think of this – SpinChill is a small device that quickly chills drinks in bottles and cans by spinning them in ice. The SpinChill can chill a can in one minute, a bottle of beer in three, and a bottle of wine in five. Seems its smooth spinning motion helps avoid foaming typically associated with shaking a drink before opening it, and the device can chill up to 300 drinks before requiring new batteries. Love. Want. Need. Perfect for the beach esky this summer…party on! 🙂

Lexus Hoverboard is real and here’s the proof

Lexus Hoverboard comes to life in this AWESOME demonstration vid

Lexus Hoverboard: Not too long ago, we posted that Lexus had created the hoverboard prototype we’ve all been dreaming of since Marty McFly flew through the air in Back to the Future II. Well, all skeptics will be happy to know…they actually have and there’s proof that the Lexus Hoverboard IS real! It seems Lexus aren’t really breaking any new ground here – all they’ve done is apply existing superconducting magnetic levitation technology. Industry experts who have tried the Lexus Hoverboard describe it as very difficult to ride yet at the same time unbelievably cool as you are levitating – the feeling so unique that they have nothing else they can compare it to, the closest is ice skating, but even that’s like comparing the finest silk to 300 grit sandpaper. So, is this finally Marty McFly’s hoverboard fully realised? Unfortunately not (insert tear). The Lexus hoverboard requires filling with liquid nitrogen every 10 minutes or so, and only works if your local skate park has several hundred thousand dollars worth of magnets built into its surface (the Lexus Hoverboard skate park was custom built). It’s also probably the most expensive thing Lexus currently produces, making its chances of hitting the store shelves anytime soon almost nil. However, none of that is the point…this is just so AWESOMEEEEEE!!! Check out all the videos below but the first one is a must watch. Enjoy! 🙂

It’s Here!! 🙂 Watch the Lexus Hoverboard in action

Pipe Dream – Aussie surfs waves on a dirt bike

'Pipe Dream' sees Maddo ride his dirt bike on iconic waves of Tahiti

Pipe Dream: WOW! DC Shoes presents Robbie “Maddo” Maddison’s ‘Pipe Dream’ which gives the world a chance to witness history being made as Maddo rides his dirt bike on the powerful and iconic waves of Tahiti. From his helmet to motocross boots, Maddo was dressed for FMX when he took his dirt bike into the unchartered saltwater terrain of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia. For nearly two years, Maddo has been focused on making surfing on his motorbike a reality. His efforts paid off in Tahiti, where he rode the world famous waves at Teahupoo and Papara. Simply awesome!! 🙂

KFC wants a Selfie of you…eating greasy chicken

KFC's chicken bucket doubles as an instant photo printer - WTF?!

KFC: So, to celebrate 60 years in Canada, KFC have created a new chicken bucket that doubles as an instant photo printer. The ‘Memories Bucket’ is a new high-tech, limited-edition big bucket that helps you print your photo on the go as you’re creating them. W. T. F.?! While specs of this device are limited, the functionality seems simple enough – it’s a standard instant photo printer that’s bucket shaped. First, snap a photo on your phone and once the printer is on, select your pic and send it to the printer via Bluetooth. KFC says on its Facebook page that it will be releasing more details about this bucket photo printer soon, and will be giving a few of them away as well. No word yet on whether it will be commercially available to anyone or in any other country (Aussie summer cricket gold!). Oh dear…this is bound to end in disaster. Who on earth wants a pic of someone with potato n’ gravy all over their face? Actually, second thoughts…this could be quite useful. Dirty birdy lol 😉
