Remember The Old Arcade Game Rampage? Well It’s Now A Feature Film and Here’s The Trailer

Remember Rampage from the 90’s? The one where you go around and cause as much chaos and destruction as possible? Well, it’s now being turned into a major blockbuster staring The Rock, and Warner Bros. just released the first trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, there are indeed large monsters causing chaos and destruction to the city (it follows the game so closely!).

The Rock plays a primatologist who befriends a gorilla named George, one day George becomes curious and investigates a meteor landing and after being sprayed in the face with some Hollywood magic, starts growing massive and becomes Curious George a rampaging monster.

The film looks like a lot of fun, and I can say that because they showed the entire movie in the trailer. Like, from the first act to the climax, they showed the entire thing. They showed so much, that I wouldn’t be surprised if the next trailer showed 35 minutes from the sequel.

This 2018 Bubble Wrap Calendar Will Make Next Year Really Pop!

So, the year is coming to an end soon. It sure has been a great one. Well, maybe not great, but hey at least it wasn’t boring. But of course, you’ll need a new calendar soon and what better way to relax in the coming year than with a bubble wrap calendar.

It works like any regular calendar, January goes first, and December is last; but this one let’s you pop your days away, which is way more fun than crossing them out with a marker.

Of course, the only issue would be resisting the urge to pop more than one day at a time. You could spend a minute popping blindly and accidentally end up erasing August. But then again, the year will fly by so fast anyway, and then before you know it, 2019 is ending, then 2020, then 2021, 2030, 2050, and then…death.

….$25 on Amazon.

Tesla’s New Roadster May Become The Fastest Production Car Ever. Period.

Tesla’s big announcement yesterday was the reveal of their electric semi-truck boasting a mile-range in the neighborhood of 500 miles per charge, and including some self-driving capabilities. That’s all well and good (actually it may be industry-changing), but this is OhGizmo, we need something more exciting than an electric truck.

Enter the new Tesla Roadster. Tesla’s first production car is back with a vengeance, and it’s taking on all other super cars, like all of them. Elon Musk claims the new Roadster can do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds, that’s the base model, and it’s also the first time a production car would crack 2-seconds. He even hinted that the car’s top speed will be over 250mph.

And as for the range, Tesla claims that the Roadster’s 200kwh battery pack can run the car for 620 miles, or over 1,000 kilometers. The thing’s even got 3 motors, one in the front and two in the rear.

The only thing that’s not to love is the price, as all that record-shattering performance will start at $200,000.

I’ll start saving every dollar I make starting today. Tesla, hold the 2085 model for me please.

You Can Now Buy Star Wars IV’s Opening Crawl As A Floor Runner

IT IS A PERIOD OF CIVIL WAR…and so on.

If you’re the type of person whose man-cave is already decked out wall-to-wall in sci-fi movie posters, and shelves storing your valued collectibles, than maybe it’s time to work on that bare wood floor. Think about all that valuable space that’s just sitting there, not yet geekified.

Well, you can kiss your worries away with the Star Wars: Title Crawl Floor Runner. It’s like any other floor runner, but this one will let everyone know where you stand on the issue of “Who shot first?”.  Its comes in at 26″ wide x 77″ long, is made from Polyester Pile.

It’s available for $40 from ThinkGeek, and personally, I think it would look really cool in anyone’s collection of Star Wars memorabilia.

The Grilled Cheese Toaster is Either Dumb or Brilliant

Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought grilled cheese was among the easiest things to cook.

The TCS2 Grilled Cheese Sandwich Toaster is (what else?) a toaster designed to make two perfect grilled cheeses at a time. Just slip in your sandwiches and let it cook. What do you want me to say? It’s a toaster, you know how toasters work.

While I’m sure this thing gets a consistent heat and good bread-to-cheese pressure, it’s missing one thing…butter. Isn’t it the smearing of butter on the bread before grilling it, what makes a grilled cheese great? Sure, you could toast two pieces of bread in your toaster oven with some cheese slices on top, but then it’ll be all dry and crunchy, and I really feel like that’s something only a psychopath would do.

See, that’s what you get with me, honesty. I’m not afraid to soil your grilled cheese dreams, because I love you.

It’s available for $25, so you’re not exactly taking a huge risk. But all I’m saying is people who enjoy butter-less grilled cheeses should be put on a list and watched.

Tis’ The Season: $5K Gold-Plated Xbox Christmas Ornaments

What could go better with that shiny new Xbox One X than some Christmas ornaments? And nothing says Merry Christmas like a gold-plated ornament made to look like an Xbox One controller.

Thankfully, Microsoft hasn’t completely lost their minds, because rather than selling these gold ornaments to people with more money than sense, they’re giving them away as prizes on their Facebook page. Four to be exact, and they’ll be given away within the coming weeks.

Though I’m not sure where the $5K figure comes from, is that how much Microsoft is giving you in addition to the ornament, or is that how much they’re worth. I mean, if they’re only gold-plated then you could probably only get $17 and an old pair of slightly damaged speakers from your local pawn shop.

Anyway you could always get a non-fancy white ornament from Microsoft, but those probably aren’t worth $5,000.

BoxLock is a Better Solution Than Amazon Key, But I Have An Even Better Idea

So Amazon Key sounds like fun, right? I mean, even lawyers are getting in on the fun times being had over at Amazon. But there’s a better solution than giving a delivery driver temporary access to your house.

It’s called the BoxLock and it’s a smart padlock that allows delivery drivers to safety store your packages without giving them freedom to scope out your valuables, depending on how much you value your garden gnomes. The padlock only opens when it’s used to scan the barcode of the arriving package, then it’ll open and give access to whatever storage box you want the delivery guy to use.

It’s on Kickstarter now for $129, and while it’s better than putting your faith in Amazon Key, I think I have an easier (and cheaper) solution.

Just leave an open padlock attached to the storage trunk and tell the delivery guy to lock it once he puts the packages in. Packages are safe, no one else has access. Genius, right? It’s almost like package delivery isn’t rocket science.

This iPhone Case Moonlights As A Lint Brush

Just when you thought every possible iPhone case has been invented, someone goes and does this.

Startup company, Stitched Products, has just announced their first product that they plan to fund through Indiegogo, an iPhone case than can be used to pick up stray hair and lint. Just when you thought you’d seen it all.

The company claims that the odd fabric attracts lint and hair, and even shows the case being used to clean off a linty black shirt in their pitch video. They even claim that it’s easy to clean the case itself and it doesn’t leave any residue like a traditional sticky lint roller.

This is such a weird product, but I kind of want it to be real. I find myself getting covered in lint all the time and it’s a real problem, I can’t count how many times I’ve been on a date and a girl crawls her way to safety through the bathroom window. I assume it’s because of my linty shirt, because it couldn’t possibly be my personality.

Anyway, they’re about halfway to their goal on Indiegogo, and early-bird cases go for $25 (which there are still plenty of).

SIXOVERONE Is a Bottle Opener That Can Open 6 Beers At Once

 

How many beers can you open at once? One, maybe two? What are you, a sucker? Think about all the valuable minutes of your life your wasting by opening one beer at a time. You could be using that time to spend with family, or reading more OhGizmo!.

Thankfully, someone made a beer opener that’s the size of a pizza peel (that’s the actual name of that large paddle they use for pizza, who knew?), that can open up to six beers at once. It’s called the SIXOVERONE and It’s designed to fit a standard six-pack of bottles, so you can have your buds ready before anyone has time to second-guess that next beer.

It’s a cool idea, but I’m just not sure how well a stamped piece of metal can hold up against six under-pressure bottles of beer, like from a physics standpoint. Of course, I don’t know how much force is required to remove a bottlecap and whether the force required grows exponentially as the number of bottlecaps increases.

Available on Kickstarter for $25. But seriously, it’s called a pizza peel? All my life I’ve been calling it a paddle.

B.E. is A Powered Brush That Uses No Electricity With One Major Flaw

Look, I know that powering your toothbrush is a problem that has never crossed your mind, but stick with me here and I’ll get us through this. I’ll crack some jokes, it’ll be great.

Imagine a toothbrush with a rotating head for a deeper clean, that never uses electricity. Sounds too amazing to be true? Well, don’t call me a liar, and check out the B.E. toothbrush. It’s a powered toothbrush that converts kinetic energy to its brushing head to become a powered brush.

You power it by rotating the base dial of the unit, which stores the wound-up energy and converts it into its rotating brush head. Just like a wind-up toy car! Simply rotate the dial before each use and the B.E. brush gives you 2 minutes of teeth-cleaning action. You can even switch off the mechanism and save that kinetic energy for its next use, like rollover minutes for your cellphone.

One thing to note is that the mechanism can only support up to 120g of force against it, which sounds rather light to be honest. They sort-of promote it as a feature to stop you from brushing too hard, but’s its more likely a limitation of the mechanism. So press just a bit too hard and the brush won’t move. Honestly, that’s kind of deal breaker when you’re talking about a $99 toothbrush.

Anyway, it’s available on Kickstarter starting at $49 for the early birds, and moving up to $89 and $99 for everyone else. Though this is one campaign that has limited availability on all tiers.

Star Wars ‘Star Destroyer’ Ring is Probably Not For The Financially Responsible

How much do you love Star Wars, a lot? Enough to buy a $450 ring designed to look like a Star Destroyer? Because that’s what geek.jewelry is offering to the biggest and least fiscally responsible Star Wars fans.

I have to say, the ring actually looks really great, and it’s available in combos of Sterling Silver/Cubic Zirconia all the way up to 14k White Gold/Diamonds.

You’d have to be a serious fan to want to spend this much on a piece of Star Wars jewelry though. Like, ‘I know all the words to the original trilogy’ serious. Or, ‘I only watch the movies on original VHS, because it doesn’t have any special effects added’ serious. Or even, ‘I’ve sent death threats to George Lucas over his handling of Jar-Jar Binks, and last year I was convicted of felony harassment, but had my sentence lessened because I cried like hell and told the judge I was super sorry’, serious.

Cool ring though.

Chain Chomp Lamp For The Super Mario Fan In Your Life

Remember World 1 on Super Mario 64? Bob-Omb Battlefield? Man, when I was a kid, I used to be so afraid of the Chain-Chomp that would jump at you and make that barking noise, those were the days.

Anyway, relive those memories with the Chain-Chomp desktop lamp. Its adjustable head will allow some degree of movement, though the chain itself doesn’t move as it’s welded steel. The lamp also has a 60 lumens LED, which’ll light up that last-minute homework with much more natural light than a traditional lamp. “Wow, I can really see my procrastination.”

The Chain Chomp Lamp is available for $50, and will begin shipping in mid-December.

Muse is a $50 Amazon Dot Designed For The Car

Want to bring Alexa into your car, of course you do. You could buy that Garmin Speak for $150 that we wrote about last month, but honestly it would just be cheaper to slap a Amazon Dot in your car. Well, apparently another company figured this out as Speak Music, a San Jose based company, have just announced the Muse, a $49 Dot for your car. Genius.

It works like a regular Dot, though it’s ergonomically designed for use in the car, and ships with a car charging cable. And like its land-based sibling, Alexa can either be activated though a tap of the button or saying ‘Alexa’. Though, do they really expect Alexa to pick up my voice when I’m blasting the Spice Girls at full volume?

The Muse seems like a no-brainer for anyone who enjoys the Alexa Assistant, as it brings the full power of the service right to your car with no compromises. Those interested can pre-order the Muse now for pre-holiday delivery at $49.

Seems like a winner, but, and I’m dead serious here, hit the jump to watch the worst acted video of all-time and thank me later.
