Wash Your Hands With Momspit?

Posted in Gadgets, With A Twist on Friday November 2, 2007 by andtheivy


“If you don’t have kids, you might have missed this post about Momspit over at Babygadget. It took me a second to figure out why anyone would name a personal cleaning product with the word “spit” in it. Here’s the lovely description: ‘Momspit (inspired by the original) is the universal no-rinse cleanser. It’s not a sanitizer and does not contain any alcohol.’ I’m not sure of the benefit if it doesn’t sanitize (just as good as water?), though I suppose it has to be better than the real thing.

It’s $9 for 2 ounces, or $18 for 7 ounces of this yucky product.”

Staple-Free Staple Pets

Posted in Gadgets, Miniatures on Friday August 3, 2007 by andtheivy

They’re a different version of miniatures. And I totally heart them.

“Paper normally sticks together through the use of external device – usually glue or some kind of bent metal wire. Then some kind of freakin’ GENIUS realized you can stick paper together WITH PAPER!

These staple-free-staplers cut a small flap and a notch in the paper, then it folds the flap back into the notch which keeps the paper stuck together! Pretty slick for a little plastic puppy!

Not only is it environmental, it’s safe – especially for little kid fingers. We’ve got these super cute staple-free staplers in adorable doggie and kitty styles in sickeningly-sweet pastel colors. Perfect for the geekling in your life, or the grown-up geek who’ve incorporated the word “SQUEE!” into their lexicon!

So, kids, next time you’ve got a report due for school, you can hand your assignment in on time while also saying, ‘The dog ate my homework.'”

Casket Furniture

Another genius find from Sam: Casket Furniture.

Why buy a casket for just one day?  Buy casket furniture that you can use all year!!  Who doesn’t want that kind of morbidity?  Tell me, WHO?

This one’s for you, Amy!

“This simple yet extremely useful device helps you pick up and transport insects with ease. And to do that, all it has is an extremely long trigger handle (65cm) at the end of which is a soft bristle-head. What you have to do when you spot an unwelcome creepy-crawly is, position the bristle correctly and squeeze the trigger which then gently closes the bristles over the insect. The insect can be quickly (and more important, harmlessly) whisked away with you still remaining at a safe distance. Though this handy gadget has been christened as the “spider” catcher, it can also be used for various other insects as well. I couldn’t ask for more – atleast for now. Check it out at Gizoo as it retails for around $15.”

Much needed. And such a funny idea – an alarm clock that runs away. Who THINKS of this stuff?

The alarm clock that runs away and hides when you don’t wake up. Clocky gives you one chance to get up. But if you snooze, Clocky will jump off of your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide. Clocky is kind of like a misbehaving pet, only he will get up at the right time.

Vibrating Glasses

Posted in Gadgets on Tuesday January 30, 2007 by andtheivy

“Vision Optic Co. has devised a pair of glasses, called MyDo Bururu, that prevent the wearer from falling asleep. Designed to assist those cramming for exams or going on a long drive, they work by detecting what angle the bespectacled user’s head is at. If the head drops below a certain level, a little motor kicks-off to vibrate the earpiece and no doubt scare the crap out of whoever is wearing them. The glasses can be set to go off at one of four levels of head-droop.” Link
