We’ve all been there…possibly. You finish watching your favourite DVD and can’t wait to stay on the sofa and watch it all over again – but wait! As everyone knows, it’s crucially important that you rewind your DVD before you hit the play button again – they’re just fancy tapes after all, right?
For the princely sum of $16.49 you can save your poor hands the hassle and have this pioneering new gadget do all the hard work for you – it even comes with a rewind sound which you can replace with whatever you like. Convenient.
USB Eye Massager
You’re sat at your desk or finishing that spreadsheet at home and you’re stressed up to the eyeballs. What better way to relax and unwind than remove your work glasses and trust your precious peepers to a plastic hand plugged into your USB slot?
The eye massager comes in a range of colours and runs straight from your computer so there’s no need for tension while you wait for the batteries to die. Who knew that Universal Serial Bus ports could be so…well… universal?
And there’s even better news! Any conscientious consumer will know that a few years down the line these will be vintage and selling for thousands. Fortunately, you can only buy the massagers in packs of 100, so you can be sure of a good stock supply for eBay.
Portable Watermelon Cooler
Here’s one that no modern commuter can be without. The portable watermelon cooler harnesses the naturally portable nature of the watermelon and enhances this with a 14 litre 6.3kg watermelon suitcase.
$230 might seem a bit steep for this new technology, until you hear that not only can the device keep your watermelon cool but it can also warm it up! I love to keep my watermelon on its toes where temperature is concerned, so this is just what the doctor ordered.
Keen not to define their market too early, the producers state their device could be used for any number of roughly watermelon-sized foods.
Steering Wheel Laptop Desk
You see countless warnings on the TV that driving whilst talking on the phone or drinking a cup of coffee is a serious health risk. Thankfully, they don’t say much about finishing a Word document so this one must be safe – right?
The desk clips onto your steering wheel allowing you to get some work done while you’re sat in a traffic jam – it’s fortunate that having a laptop attached to your wheel won’t affect your steering capabilities.
No word on how much this one costs, but I hope you weren’t considering buying it anyway.
There’s not much that’ll put you off your day more than staring at a bland piece of toast for breakfast in the morning.
Too long have we been covering up our bread imperfections with jam or butter, but you can rejoice that those times are at an end. The Zuse Toast Printer allows you to print 12×12 pixel designs onto your toast to put you in the right frame of mind for the day – and not a moment too soon either.
Heart wrenchingly, the printer is still in the design process and hasn’t quite hit the shelves yet, but demand for such a device is palpable and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some key investors throwing money at the idea to get it out there.
