    The next logical step for both bacon and popcorn is bacon-flavored popcorn

  • Powered cooler to replace ice at picnics – and you ask why there's an energy crisis

    Powered cooler to replace ice at picnics – and you ask why there's an energy crisis

    Here’s the thing. I appreciate innovation. This rechargable portable refrigerator looks handy. Handy if you live in a world without ice. I mean really now: there is more water than anything else in the world, and you possess the means to freeze it in your very own home. Once you decide that you’d rather use up about a gazillawatt of energy to keep a couple drinks cold rather than… Read More

    Ten-person boat features built-in grill

    Summer, much like Karma Chameleon, comes and goes. It comes and goes. And I’ll be damned if this past summer came and went with few (if any) of us wiling away the hours in a circular boat with a built-in grill. Read More

    Say yes to double-sided condiment bottles

    Oh Balloon Boy, your human interest story mesmerized us and gave us hope. But your misadventures lasted but a few short hours and like all minor celebrities, your fame is fading away like Marty McFly’s family members in that photo from that one movie where his car looks like a bird and they never really reveal how that professor makes money. He doesn’t teach any classes… Read More

    Observe these delicious ravioli sponges

    Five-pound gummy bear costs $40 and packs 12,600 calories

    So. You guys still eating gummy bears one by one? That’s cool, I guess. As a prognosticator of internet trends, I can tell you that the Next Big Thing (TM) will be this five-pound gummy bear that costs $40. Just saying. Read More

  • Canned bacon has 10-year shelf life

    Canned bacon has 10-year shelf life

    Most things just aren’t built to last these days. Computers, cell phones, vehicles, televisions — good luck getting ten years out of any of them. Then there’s Tactical Canned Bacon. It’ll last for ten years. Ten. Years. Read More

  • Rock Band Drum Cake makes for a delicious peripheral

    Rock Band Drum Cake makes for a delicious peripheral

    Yum, who’s hungry for Rock Band Drum Cake?! The icing on the cake (pun intended!) is that this life-size delicacy actually sits atop an actual Rock Band drum kit stand. The 12-year-old who received this cake on his recent birthday apparently had a spare stand sitting around after he pummeled a previous set of drums to death and had to replace them. The whole setup almost looks too good… Read More

  • Back to School: Wide World of Ramen

    Back to School: Wide World of Ramen


    So you’re moving away from the dorms and their plentiful buffet-style meals. It’s a big step, I know, and you’ll have to do some adjusting. Cooking for yourself can be a rewarding experience, and you may discover that you have a knack for it, or enjoy the process as much as the results. But the first steps can be daunting, so focus on the basics. It’s not exactly… Read More

  • HotCans: Self-heating canned food

    HotCans: Self-heating canned food

    The end is near, my friends. Please observe self-heating canned food. Ready to eat in about 12 minutes, you can choose between Beef Casserole, Vegetable Chili, and Sausages and Beans. Apparently via some sort of “safe exothermic reaction” these “HotCans” become self-aware somehow. Or heat themselves up. Same basic difference — they might as well be self-aware. Read More

  • Ramen robot makes 800 bowls a day – that's almost enough for me

    In a development being hailed as “the greatest single step forward ever taken by civilization,” Japan has made a pair of wise-cracking robot arms that make and deploy up to 800 perfect bowls of ramen per day. Yes, we saw one like this back in July, but this is a whole other level. It’s like Wall-E vs. the talking toaster from Red Dwarf (admittedly, a solid robot). These… Read More

    Nixie Tubes: Like Pixy Stix with caffeine

    While Pixy Stix may have gotten you all hopped up as a child, you’ll need something a bit stronger in your adult years. Enter Nixie Tubes — basically grown-up Pixy Stix laced with 100mg of caffeine. Read More

  • EZGrill: The $5 single-use grill

    EZGrill: The $5 single-use grill

    I live on the top floor of a third-floor walkup with no balcony in the middle of Boston. That doesn’t mean I don’t like grilling, though. Granted, I can’t really grill nor do I have any use for a grill, but maybe someday I’ll want to grill somewhere else. What? Now I have to buy a grill? What the hell do I need a grill for if I’m only going to use it once or twice… Read More

    The 'Go Plate' facilitates outdoor food and beverage enjoyment

    Even though summer has been effectively cancelled for certain areas of the country, it doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy an all-American barbecue. You’ll just have to cook everything on the stove and eat inside. Just like summer, except more like winter! Read More

    PSA: Tomorrow is National Donut Day

    Tomorrow is National Donut Day. I love donuts. I feel no personal shame. Donuts and my body mesh well together. If I had an ideal food, it would be donuts. If you like donuts even half as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that you can get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts and/or Krispy Kreme tomorrow. I’m sure you’ll be able to get other deals at your local donut shops… Read More

    BBQ Sword: Swashbuckling meets Deliciousness and has a baby named Fun

    I know what you’re thinking: $20 is far too much for a skewer. And normally I’d agree with you, except that this skewer is called the “Swashbuckling BBQ Sword” and features a handsome fencing grip. Read More
