Squatty Potty – A Prince & Unicorn Want You To Poo Better

Squatty Potty is definitely our WTF product OTW

Squatty Potty: A magical unicorn squeezes out rainbow ice cream from its bum while an uppity prince explains proper pooping technique in a new commercial for the Squatty Potty, a bathroom stool designed to help promote better colon health.

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…

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Catstacam – Yes, it’s a thing!

'Catstacam' lets you discover & follow the secret life of your cat on Instagram

Catstacam: From our ‘WTF, is this really happening?’ file, comes the newest thing in feline chic – ‘Catstacam’. ‘Catstacam’ is a new kind of wearable camera for cats, which can automatically upload photographs from the secret life of your cat to a dedicated Instagram account. This interesting gadget designed by Whiskas in Australia will take pictures and happily post them on Instagram as soon as it is within range of your wi-fi network. Whiskas explained the ‘Catstacam’ on their Facebook page “Have you ever wondered what your cat was trying to tell you with some of their actions? WHISKAS® CATSTACAM™ is our brand new program designed to help cat lovers better understand cats by giving a glimpse into their world. The custom WHISKAS CATSTACAM devices let selected cats take photos and post them directly to their own Instagram accounts. At the moment we only have a limited number of devices available (that’s why they’re not available for purchase) so to share our cat insights we have chosen key cat lovers that will help us spread the word – and show-off their furry friends’ intriguing behaviour. To follow them, and see what adventures they get up to, simply search #‎Catstacam on Instagram. But we don’t just want to show you what cats get up to, we want to provide a deeper understanding of common cat behaviour. So if you see anything you’re curious about, or the behaviour shown is similar to your cat’s, just ask a question and hashtag #‎AskWhiskas‬ and our cat behavioural expert will respond, telling you what it means. WHISKAS CATSTACAM is the social way to help you better understand cats.” Hmmm look, while we’re not really cat people, more power to those who really want to know what their cat does when left to their own devices and we applaud Whiskas for coming up with such a unique marketing idea. Clearly, it’s catching on or we wouldn’t be talking about it. Enjoy feline lovers…meow!

‘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!

Boo-Boos 1

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:

Boo-Boos 2

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!
