Lobster Taser - Time to Taser the Lobsters

Lobster Taser – Time to Taser the Lobsters

The lobster taser which looks like a giant lobster panini press or photocopier stuns lobsters with 110 volts that delivers a shock immediately and effectively disabling said lobster’s nervous system. You can then proceed with the boiling, baking, and or grilling. We remain committed to taking out any food we eat humanely, so we look forward to more lobster tasers in the future – maybe even a home model.

Magic wand remote

Magic wand remote

If you’re bored of the same old TV remote, why not ditch it for this magic wand remote. Use flicks of your wrist to change the channel and big sweeping moves to record your favourite TV show. The wand will learn up to 13 commands from your old remote and you can choose which moves control each command, making your remote un-hijackable! It will also work on your Sky box, stereo or any other infra-red device.

The Double Slanket

The Double Slanket

Behold- the Double Slanket! Just like the original slanket it’s a blanket with sleeves, but now there’s four of them! Perfect for a nice long romantic evening in front of some weepy film- and you don’t even have to unsnuggle yourselves to eat the chocolate. Light some candles, turn of the lights and let the evening go where it will go. Particularly good for those of us who have partners that have a habit of stealing the covers. No matter how tightly they twist the bottom round their legs you’re not going to be left with just a corner to keep away the chills…

Walkie Talkie Watches

Walkie Talkie Watches

The first thing we thought was “a walkie talkie in a watch? That’ll be poo! It will have no range, eat batteries, have no functions and be seriously fiddly/difficult to use”. So naturally we had to have a closer look. At first glance we were surprised by the size. They are oversized, compared to a Casio watch, but not as much as you might think. The face of the “watch” only measures in at 7 x 6 x 2.5cm and when you consider that the aerial can be folded in and out when needed it is surprisingly small. The next thing we noticed was…

SteriShoe sterilizes and gets rid of shoe odors

SteriShoe sterilizes and gets rid of shoe odors

SteriShoe may be a product that some might think is taking things too far. However, if you’ve ever worn workboots or know someone that does, I doubt you question that it’d be a great idea for some people. Some of the reason being that you just wish you could get rid of the smell, the other part being that you really do wonder sometimes how much bacteria gets built up inside of a pair of shoes you never wash.

How can you not like the Lobster Taser?! No kitchen should be complete without one!

Phil Says: December 4, 2009 at 11:53 am

I voted for the remote but I have to say that the slanket is a pretty cool idea

madamoisele Says: December 4, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Nothing says “badassery in motion” like these walkie talkie watches. $50??? Are you kidding me? THAT’S ALL?! Halt production on the Death Star, Vader – I’ve got to swing my Battleship around to pick up a set of these bad boys. 5km range?? When I was a kid, we were lucky if our overpriced brick sized talkies could reach across a small pond. I’m practically salivating. Now I can contact all of my minions at once. I’d like to shake the hand of the genius who put these out on the market. Sure, I could just use Push-to-talk – but this is way cooler. Revised Retro for teh win!

SteriShoe is nice

tru Says: December 4, 2009 at 12:28 pm

Wow, is this white elephant week… I’m going to have to go with the ladder. Not very gadget-y but useful.

Jason Says: December 4, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Magic wand remote got my vote. That’s just silly enough to be cool!

Jabberwock Says: December 4, 2009 at 1:50 pm

The ladder. Don’t ask me why…

Larry Goodale Says: December 4, 2009 at 2:32 pm

The ladder is not only cool, but it’s useful and I actually know of someone who has one and uses it everyday.

Maxxx Says: December 4, 2009 at 2:52 pm

The remote, easy! Expelliamus!

Bruce Says: December 4, 2009 at 3:16 pm

MUST HAVE shoe sterilizer – my partners shoes peel our wallpaper!

Helard Says: December 4, 2009 at 7:13 pm

The “Walkie Talkie Watches” are so cool!!

Kevin Says: December 4, 2009 at 8:42 pm

SteriShoe is a great idea, but I’m also no so sold on the price & shoe size bit…

Paul Getson Says: December 4, 2009 at 8:46 pm

I love the wand. Thought it would be neat to be the first one to have one, and set it up to use on a friend’s TV. Go visit, then use the wand to control his TV without telling him what it is.
Besides, I’m just a gadget freak… 😉

ricky Says: December 5, 2009 at 5:15 pm

i like the wand. your friends ask where is the remote andd you say right there it is the wand. he will be soo siked.

Jose Joaquin Says: December 6, 2009 at 5:22 pm

Sterishoe is the best gadget, it’s useful and easy to use.

Mel Says: December 7, 2009 at 8:39 am

The Wand for the look on friends faces when you hand them the remote control !

Emma Says: December 7, 2009 at 9:56 pm

Too bad not many people vote for Space Saving Air Hockey Table. I actually really like it. It’s great for parties and family game. Only if I live in US and can afford it…

Bartholomew Henry Says: December 11, 2009 at 3:05 am

I stopped eating lobster because of the inhumane treatment of it all. I didn’t even know they had something like this until now. Everything else here is a bit of a luxury, but I pick the lobster taser because every restaurant should own one.

oph31ia Says: December 12, 2009 at 1:03 am

The best gadget is the wand. Because it learns up to 13 different controls, it is completely unique for a universal remote. And the market for it is MASSIVE! so many nerds….

Jessica Says: December 18, 2009 at 8:46 am

Clearly, the coolest gadget is the magic remote.

Jonathan Says: January 12, 2010 at 12:27 pm

Walkie Talkie Watches! This’d be great for communicating with a hunting partner on a different stand. Also, I’m a triathlete, so it’d also be useful to communicate with a friend during a race. Good fun!

Selene M Says: February 12, 2010 at 6:30 am

I voted for the ladder.

hawkingbird Says: February 26, 2010 at 2:11 am

hfrfd Says: April 27, 2010 at 10:18 pm
