Hank the Beer Tank – Product of the Day

‘Hank the Beer Tank’ is a fully portable compact Kegerator. Party on!

Hank the Beer Tank: We absolutely LOVE ‘Hank the Beer Tank’ which is a very clever, fully portable kegerator that can easily travel around for parties, camping, anything, and can operate off of 110-240V AC, or 12-24V DC. Founders Sebastian Ehreiser and Adam Koeppel are currently raising funds via Kickstarter in order to bring ‘Hank the Beer Tank’ to market and say this about the product “You can plug me into just about anything. And while I am plugged in I use less power than a 60W light bulb. To serve beer. From a keg. Anywhere. I do this by using a super efficient inverter controlled compressor, power electronics, and a digital control unit. I am smart about sipping power, and I wont drain your battery, I will just turn off. Warm beer is always better than a car that won’t start. I carry CO2 with me to keep kegs pressurized and preserved. I can accommodate a sixtel keg of your favorite craft beer. I can cool it to 0F, but who wants a frozen keg? I am also half the size of most kegerators on the market, so I can fit in a small space in your home, truck, boat, or tent. Just don’t leave me outside, I don’t like the rain.” This. is. GOLD! Happy Friday! 🙂

Barracuda – Product of the Day

Barracuda is the carry-on roller bag with a clever collapsible design

Barracuda: We are obsessed with the Barracuda which is a uniquely designed carry-on bag that is equipped with connectivity features as well as a clever collapsible structure. The Barracuda includes a USB charger, GPS capability (for locating the bag), plus an integrated laptop tray and while looking like a typical hardshell roller bag, it collapses flat for storage in just a few seconds. The San Francisco-based brand is currently raising funds via a Kickstarter campaign with the bag expected to ship in November 2015. Amazing idea!

David Hasselhoff is a ‘True Survivor’

David Hasselhoff rides a T-Rex in his music video from the ‘Kung Fury’ soundtrack

David Hasselhoff: We love watching David Hasselhoff ride a T-Rex in his new music video for the song ‘True Survivor’ from the Kung Fury soundtrack. Kung Fury is an over-the-top 1980s-style action comedy about a kung fu cop who travels back in time to fight Hitler and was written and directed by David Sandberg who successfully raised the money to finish the film via a Kickstarter campaign. The Hoff has done it again – Love, Love, Love it!

‘Boo-Boos’ – Are these Band-Aids too Realistic?

'Boo-Boos' depict sickening & repulsive injuries yet they're so much fun!

If you enjoy others feeling sorry for you with every little cut or graze, then Boo-Boos are probably for you. Boo-Boos are just like the band-aids you already use only hyper-realistic – allowing you to transform the smallest cut into a gunshot wound, chemical burn, or skin ulcer. An offbeat project currently being funded on Kickstarter, Boo-Boos make your cuts & scrapes look so much worse than they really are. While the injuries depicted on these bandages are somewhat sickening and repulsive, they are also just a bit of fun. So go ahead and slap them on and watch people gasp and gag at your laceration, burn, or infection. So gross!

So what’s the story? $hërwøõd Förlêé, inventor of the Anti-Theft Lunch Bags, came up with the idea for Boo-Boos after witnessing an accident that involved a bit too much blood for his liking. A visit to the ER revealed that the injury was thankfully (but disappointingly given the look of it) not very serious. A couple of stitches later and all was good again. $hërwøõd maintains, however, that at the time, the injury was life-threatening, and I’m sure that many of you can relate to this sentiment after receiving nicks of your own. Now, with Boo-Boos, you can finally convince people of the gravity of your wound while keeping the truth under wraps. A variety of injuries are depicted on the bandages including:

The bandages, despite how they look, are sterile, latex-free, and individually wrapped so you can guarantee your boo-boos won’t turn into Boo-Boos. All bandages measure 3″ × 0.75″ (76mm × 19mm). Boo-Boos aren’t for everyone, especially those with weak stomachs, but you have to admit, they’re definitely more interesting than any of the other Band-Aids on the market. If you don’t mind a bit of attention, enjoy having a bit of a laugh, or you wish to convey pain in a conceivable visual manner, then Boo-Boos are definitely for you!
