Pug Mask: It’s a Pug Life

Pug Mask1

It’s a hard knock life for pugs–or isn’t it? They’re oddly adorable with their squished-looking faces and it’s hard to take them seriously because they make these goofy yet endearing expressions all the time. If you’re bored or in the mood to freak someone out, or if you just feel like channeling your inner pug (if there is such a thing), then you need this Pug Mask.

It’s furry, it’s funny, and it lets you wear a pug on your mug.

 

Pug Mask

You’ll look like a pug who’s in eternal shock when you’ve got this on, but at least no one’ll know it’s you. Unless you bark, er, tell them so, that is.

The Pug Mask is available online for $75.

StashPad Holds Your Booze and Cigars Discretely

iPad Flask

If you’ve been caught sneaking drinks in one too many times, then you should do away with your old methods and try using the StashPad for a change. It looks like an iPad (okay, maybe a knockoff iPad seeing as it’s way thicker than Apple’s tablets), but it’s actually a flask and cigar case in disguise. It’s thick for a good reason too– all 12 ounces of it, because that’s the volume of drinks it can effectively stash for you.

Just make sure you don’t attempt to actually use the StashPad, whether as a tablet (in case you forget) or as a flask, in front of your boss or you’ll risk giving yourself away. The StashPad is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $15 will get you one of your very own.

Wear It, Charge It, Use It: Joe’s Jeans #HELLO Pants

Charging Jeans

Got no space in your bag for a power bank? No worries, because Joe’s Jeans have got you covered with their new #HELLO pants. These designer denim pants feature a sown-in slot near the waistband and an extra pocket at the rear– the former for the battery pack and the latter for your phone. That way, you can just stick your gadgets into your jeans and charge ’em as you go.

The jeans retail for $189, which is obviously steep for a pair of jeans. The battery pack doesn’t come with the jeans though, and you’ll have to buy it separately for $49. You’ll be able to charge your iPhone at least three-fourths full using the ultra-slim battery pack. Aside from Apple gadgets, you’ll also be able to use it to charge micro USB-compatible devices.

Never-Ending Birthday Card Goes On and On and On

Never Ending Birthday Card

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is the card you should give to frenemies, friends, and family who you want to annoy the crap out of– but while still being endearing– at the same time. The card starts playing as soon as its opened, and as its name suggests, it won’t stop until it runs out of juice. That’s an estimated 3 hours of playing time, which should be enough to drive most people bonkers.

The best part? There’s no way to stop it, because it will keep on playing even if you tear, submerge, or burn the card. How’s that for dedication?

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is available for £9.99 (~$16.)

Calling all lovers of birds! A contraption called the ‘Eye to Eye’ is now available so you can get up close and personal with hummingbirds while you feed them. It’s basically a wearable bird feeder that lets you literally come face to beak with the birds as they feed. A miniaturized feeding tube is embedded in the middle of the mask, which means the birds will be in your face while it feeds.

For $80, you’ll get two feeding tubes, two laminated inlays, and one face shield (of course you need one.) Is it worth it? Is it not? That depends on you and on the experience that you’re hoping to get out of it. You can get the ‘Eye to Eye’ mask here.

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment– And It Looks Awesome!

Are you excited for Ant-Man? I know I am. He’s not your typical superhero and he certainly doesn’t look it, considering he runs with ants and is roughly the size of one when he transforms. The concept was met with skepticism but a lot of folks were intrigued when the trailer was released. Now here’s another version of that trailer by Antonio Toscano, a LEGO builder extraordinaire who recreated the whole thing using nothing but LEGO bricks.

Maybe he should do the entire movie next? You can check out more of Antonio’s work here.

Surveillance On the Sly: AC Adaptor Hidden Camera

AC Adaptor DVR – Hidden Camera

People often show their true colors when there’s no one else in the room. If you’re suspicious or feel that someone’s up to no good in your home or office, then you might want to set up a hidden camera within the vicinity. Clocks and plush toys stuffed with a hidden camera or a mic on the inside are pretty common– but a camera disguised as an AC adaptor? Not so.

To get it up and running, just pop in an SD card and plug it into an AC outlet. When it detects motion, the camera will automatically start recording. You can use an SD card up to 16 GB capacity, which should be more than enough to record 16 hours of video on average.

The AC Adaptor Hidden Camera is  available online for $200.
