When you travel, you need a place to keep all your grooming and toiletry products organized so they don’t just fall out all over your clothing and spill everywhere. A toiletry bag, aka “dopp kit” is a must have, and I think I must have this one.
This shiny black PVC bag from Balvi is embellished with the maze from the classic arcade game Pac-Man. Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde are all there, along with lots of dots to gobble, and power pills for taking down the ghosts roaming around your suitcase.
The Pac-Man dopp kit is available from Madrid, Spain retailer Curiosite for €14.99 (~$17 USD) but if you don’t want to try and deal with international shipping, you can find a similar (but not as good looking) bag on Amazon.
The third generation of Google Glass has arrived with Glass Enterprise Edition 2. This version largely sticks to the familiar formula that you know on the outside, but we can expect it to be different inside, and more powerful in both hardware and software. Since it’s “built on Android” it will be easier for developers to write apps for it, and you can also enroll it in Android’s enterprise device management to help IT maintain control. There are also some very welcomed changes on the inside though.
The new version runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 processor. That means much faster performance and power savings for longer battery life. Which is very helpful when you need to wear Glass for hours on the job. There is also improved camera quality for video streaming and such. It also has a USB-C port for faster charging which is a good addition.
Keep in mind that this version is for work use, and not really for the rest of us. You won’t see them on the street, but you may see them in warehouses, shipping centers and other work environments. It may also attract more corporate customers who want augmented reality eyewear without buying something as cumbersome as Microsoft’s HoloLens 2. Companies interested in the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 can inquire here.
Fallout fans know that the only real way to survive the wasteland is to find some power armor and profit. ThinkGeek has got you covered with their exclusive 1:1 scale Fallout T-51 Power Armor Nuka-Cola helmet. Since it is a 1:1 replica, you can actually wear it.
The PVC helmet also has a voice modulator inside to make you sound suitably robot-like. It has a functioning LED headlamp and custom VATS sound feature. It’s listed as “one size fits most” and measures an impressive 24.5″ tall.
While the helmet is up for pre-order now, the final design is subject to change pending licensor approval. ThinkGeek will sell you one for $149.99 with shipping expected in mid-June.
The BBC series Doctor Who has been around for decades. The show’s producers have a cool way to keep the series going as different docs die off and regenerate. One thing that has remained pretty much the same over all these years is the TARDIS. Doctor Who fans will want to check out this TARDIS backpack.
It’s based on the blue police box from the 11th season of the show and measures 11.5″ x 13″ x 5.5″. It’s not bigger on the inside; those are the actual dimensions. It looks like leather, but it’s made from shiny, textured polyurethane.
It has a snap closure and a pair of zippered side pockets. Sadly, it has no dedicated laptop pouch, but it still looks cool. ThinkGeek will sell you one for $79.99, and it is shipping now.
Each year ThinkGeek runs some of the most plausible products in its April Fools’ Day gags. We sort of love it and sort of hate it. The cool part each year for me is trying to figure out which of the pranks proves popular enough that the company will actually produce and sell it.
I’m calling it for this Sir Mix-a-lot approved Bean Bag Onesie. It sort of looks like a corn-fed Yoshi with a big ‘ol booty. The onesie has a bean bag chair attached to your butt, so you can just park it anywhere.
It might be perfect for all that time spent wishing you could just sit down when out shopping with your girlfriend when the single guy-chair outside the dressing room is already taken. Plus it would be embarrassing enough that she might just let you stay home. The gag listing says its $89.99, which would be cash well spent.
You’ll never see any of the Game of Thrones characters wearing sneakers, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t have sneakers based on them. HBO and sportswear giant adidas have teamed up to celebrate the eighth and final season of the TV adaption of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, with these sneakers based on the houses and characters of Westeros.
The collection is comprised of six limited-edition Ultraboost 4.0 running sneakers, with each pair designed to represent the characteristics, colors, and details of these characters.
“The shoes feature subtle references to the different warring factions of Westeros. Details include their faction’s sigil on the tongue and motto on the heel tag. House motifs inspired by the show come together to create bold and distinct colorways, the adidas x Game of Thrones Ultraboost silhouettes fuse performance-oriented footwear technology with a striking and cultural visual aesthetic.”
They will be available on March 22, 2019 at adidas.com, and via the adidas app for $180. You can sign up here to be notified the second the shoes are available. Better get yours quick before they run out.
If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, and you want to give your cat a heart attack, check out this crazy looking furry cat mask. It’s so realistic that your cat will hate you forever for scaring it to death.
After you pony up roughly $2,700, Japanese creative outlet Shindo Rinka and modeling workshop 91 will create this lifelike cat mask for you based on photos of your pet. Furries and crazy cat ladies everywhere are now cracking open their piggy banks. It’s called “My Family” masks, and it is meant to symbolize the bond that you have with your pets.
This thing is just terrifying. Why would you do this to poor little Fluffy? If I put this thing on, my cat is never talking to me again. Not that my cat actually talks to me. Not that I’m admitting anyway. It’s not weird. Nevermind. Anyway, look at how terrified that cat is in the second image. It’s never seen a giant cat before and thinks it’s about to be dinner.
Peter Quill just couldn’t control himself and had to punch Thanos right in the face, resulting in the snap heard around the world. If you like the idea of an all-powerful gauntlet that lets you do whatever you want, try this Infinity Gauntlet Rings Bracelet on for size.
This version of the Infinity War Gauntlet consists of a chain bracelet with colorful faux gemstone rings attached by smaller chains. The whole thing is gold colored but isn’t gold. Its made of nickel-free zinc alloy.
It’s listed as “one size fits most” and can be yours for $34.99 over at ThinkGeek. Just don’t use it to vaporize half the world’s population.
James T. Kirk has commanded several versions of the Starship Enterprise, now let him command your feet. Beam these Captain Kirk crew socks onto your feet today. Your sock drawer needs a tough, no-nonsense leader to keep the rest of your socks in line. Kirk is comfortable on your feet and he knows how to handle first contact with the ground and every contact after.
Captain Kirk socks are especially good if your feet have corns Gorns, because he knows how to take care of those too. I like how they have his arms at the side as he clenches his fist like he is going to punch his way out of your shoes. These socks will surely get you the ladies. Green ladies, blue ladies with antenna, tribble ladies, ladies with beaks, ladies with ridged heads, and so much more.

If you take your board games with you often to game night or to your friend’s house, this backpack will help you transport them. The Ultimate Boardgame Backpack is designed and sold by GeekOn. It’s a huge-ass backpack specifically designed for carrying board games – at least the square boxes.
It comes in a variety of colors and includes all kinds of features like an expandable main compartment, waterproofing, two koozies, and a bunch of other zippered pockets for things like laptops, notepads and more. It is so big in the back that it looks pretty silly when fully loaded.
If you fall down while wearing this thing, you’ll be stuck on the floor like a turtle on it back. There are also optional accessories like elastic straps for your games, a waist strap, dice case and tray, and more. Hopefully, it won’t mess up your boxes either when you cram them all in there – I know how gamers like to keep their stuff in pristine condition.
Enjoy your slipped disc and other assorted back problems. Oh and it costs $200, so I’m sure some players will opt to just buy some more games with their money instead.
