Technology & GadgetsFinally, The Bluetooth-Enabled Banana Phone Of Your DreamsThis is the Indiegogo campaign for the Banana Phone, a Bluetooth enabled banana shaped handset for use with a smartphone. It costs $40 and is probably a great conversation starter. Unfortunately, you'll probably already be on the phone when somebody tries to start that conversation. You know, I actually used to have one of those old rotary-phone looking handsets that I'd carry around with me everywhere I went before I took a good long look at myself in the mirror and asked myself just what the hell I was doing with my life. "And what did you come up with?" I want to build a rocket ship or a time machine. Design Hunters
LifestyleCustom-Made Poseable Xenomorph Alien Dog Stuffed AnimalThis is the xenomorph runner 'Alien Toy' crafted and sold by Russian artist Catherine Abanina of Etsy shop Abalaba. It costs $350 and has a wire armature inside that makes it poseable. Obviously, I'm going to pose it licking itself like a real alien dog would do. Who knows, maybe I'll put it in a stroller and take it for walks, that seems to be the thing to do in my neighborhood, especially for people with cats and lizards. Have a young child asking for a pet? Get them a stuffed animal instead. Design Hunters

For reference, I've never paid $575 for any clothing except the Emperor's New Clothes, which I bought at auction before reading the story. I was hoodwinked. Design Hunters
TransportationBridgestone Plans To Roll Out New Airless Bicycle TiresThese are the new 'Air Free Concept' airless bicycle tires developed by Bridgestone that the company hopes to bring to the market by 2019, or approximately five months after the world ends. Whether it ends with a bang or whimper remains to be seen, but I'm hoping for a bang, preferably by a massive alien laser cannon. Design Hunters

TransportationAuction Block: Untouched 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSRHere’s the thing with classic cars: if there’s one you’re pining after from years long gone, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll never get one brand new. At the very least, you won’t be the one breaking it in. There are, however, extremely rare occasions where nearly untouched examples emerge and head to auction, like phoenixes rising from the ashes – which is exactly the story behind this 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR.Petrocaine

Instead, we’re renting, moving into converted loft spaces in our regional cities across the US, or building sustainable and borderline indestructible homes in line with our enhanced environmental beliefs.This is the Born To Fly suitcase. It's a $380 carry-on suitcase with an integrated baby stroller that folds out like the world's most depressing Transformer. That way you don't have to pack your kid IN your suitcase like you normally would. Alternatively, leave the kid at home. You're supposed to be going on vacation to relax after all, and there's nothing relaxing about toting around a child that's too young to walk or wipe themselves.

The model is designed so that the machine prints strands of hair as support structures for 3D printing. Once you’re done with the print, all you do is use the supports as individual strands of hair! A hot-air gun or a hairdryer is all you need to fix the hairstyle and you’ve got yourself an amazing print with near-real hair!Jakarta-based designer and retoucher Aditya Aryanto posed the question: what would the blocky digital creatures in Minecraft look like if they actually walked the Earth? The result is a totally absurd series of retouched photographs titled Minecraft in Real Life.
