You pick!

For people who still don’t feel tech is dystopian enough, here’s the Eyecam… a webcam that creepily stares right into your soul. In a world where tech spies on you (sometimes blatantly), the Eyecam adds a layer of realism to it. Designed by researcher Marc Teyssier, the Eyecam is more of a social project that aims at turning the humble camera into something more relatable – for better or for worse. The resulting device is eerily similar to an eye. Sure, it comes covered with faux flesh and has eyebrows and eyelashes, but the Eyecam doesn’t just look like an eye. It behaves like one too. The eyeball can independently pivot inside the eye socket, looking around the room. A facial recognition software runs in the background, allowing the Eyecam to detect humans and look them directly in the eye. If that wasn’t creepy enough, the eyeball even has a tendency to move and jitter around like a human eye. It doesn’t stay absolutely still… instead, it looks and scans you, parts of your face, and intermittently shifts its gaze between your left and right eye.

What starts out as a simple white silhouette, on lighting up, it shows Brachio illuminated underneath the sheet. The form has a removable cylinder underneath that can be easily removed to help you switch the bulb. The attention to detail can be seen in the little tail sticking out from underneath the sheet. Bringing to mind all the sheet-covered ghosts we are sure to see this Halloween, the Mood Lamp Brachio creates a cozy little corner of your home that is sure to bring a smile to your face. Bringing this ghostly lamp into your home is sure to alleviate some gloom. If you have ever found yourself alone in a crowd, this mood lamp will surely ‘feel’ you and add some Halloween spirit to your bedside!

This steampunk-ish coffee table by Minnesota-based Machine Age Lamps is dope! The picture-perfect combination of retro-futurism with the contemporary Barnwood lends this furniture piece a sublime charm, without a doubt! Alright, coming onto the make – the coffee table has a rare, 100 years old Barnwood “salvaged from a Minessota USA barn” acting as the base section. On top, there is the half-inch thick glass top which gives an eye-popping look inside the steam pressure gauges and valves that urge you to own it right away. For the idealistic ambiance in the evenings or even while throwing a Halloween-themed party, you just have to turn up the nixie tubes underneath. There are six of them with dimmer switches hidden under the wood lip.

Available in 60mm and 80mm variants, this perfect sphere made from K9 crystal completely flips your world upside down, both literally and figuratively. The Lensball adds a real-life photo filter (and an absolutely beautiful one at that) to your photos. Perfect for almost any photo, be it in a natural or urban setting, be it of a product or a person, the Lensball draws attention to your composition by flipping things 180° and giving them a rather nifty fish-eye effect. It even comes with a convenient carrying case so that it doesn’t get damaged, whereas the K9 crystal gives it scratch-resisting properties (K9 is one of the most commonly used materials in lenses and optics).

The Orb, created as a creative collaboration between MB&F and L’Epée, can be placed in closed or open orientations to display the time and the complex physical movement that powers the clock. The clock comes with an orb-shaped design comprising a circular face on the front and four petals (or elytra, given the Orb pulls inspiration from beetles) that give it its spherical eyeball-esque shape. When closed, the orb looks like, well, an orb that sits on a dock (to prevent it from rolling over). You can manually open out the Orb’s elytra, making it look like a beetle in flight, and even have it stand vertically, with the clock facing upwards. In this open orientation, the Orb also showcases its mesmerizing 1839 movement, designed and manufactured in-house by L’Epée.

The Shaped 3D Skull Ice Tray Silicone Ice Mould produces four large ice cubes shaped like skulls! These interesting ice cubes are the perfect way to add a hint of spookiness and fun to your upcoming Halloween parties! The silicone-ice mold uses BPA-free materials that aren’t toxic. The flexible design ensures that the ice cubes can be released instantly and easily, and it is safe to store in your refrigerator and freezers!

The Number Cruncher watch has hands, but they aren’t for telling time! The watch face features an adorable cartoon monster that uses its hands to munch on numbers in a way that tells the time while also telling a story of sorts. This blue monster (stomping its way through Central London) comes with a window at its stomach and within its left hand. The hour of the day appears as the number in the monster’s hand, and as it munches on it, the minutes appear within the monster’s digestive system. It’s a good thing there’s no seconds dial on this watch because I honestly don’t know where one could possibly put it!

Hidden inside this pitch-black bulbous shape is an entire chandelier. The King Edison Ghost Pendant Lamp is a single large-ish bulb that comes with a black exterior but switches the light inside on, and you get this dimmed view of a rather magnificent miniature chandelier, almost as if you’re staring into a crystal ball at a ghostly image. Designed with a rather unique blend of modern and antique, the King Edison switches between the two. All you see is the hand-blown black glass exterior when it’s switched off, giving it a contemporary touch, however, switch it on and you travel back in time with a miniature real brass hanging candelabra on the inside. The overall design combines the simplicity of Edison bulbs with the majestic mystery of the King chandelier hiding within.

The Luna Mirror will pull you towards it like the moon pulls the ocean! This mirror is the most minimal way to bring a little bit of celestial aesthetic to your interiors. “The Crescent moon design is made of sand and pure pigments, on a mirror measuring 60 cm in diameter. Each piece is unique and different from the others because it is made in the same phase in which the moon is passing. It is exposed to the night, the serene and the next day to the sun to seal the agreement” says Granila. The entire process follows the moon and the handcrafted design makes each crater, every inch of that surface as unique as your home is.

There’s a particular short film in the Netflix anthology Love Death and Robots that’s about yogurt taking over the world. Scientists somehow managed to make yogurt sentient and gave it incredible problem-solving abilities. A jar of yogurt began solving complex problems humans couldn’t, and eventually became president of the USA. Jaro Kose’s Invader whisk has little to do with the story above, but I often wonder how our world would look if another sentient being (not necessarily milk-based) looked at our lifestyle, our products, and our ways of problem-solving and came up to us and said: “You’re clearly bad at this, let me handle it”. The Invader whisk looks almost as if it was designed with a similar outlook. More organic and less complicated than your regular hand-cranked whisk, Kose’s Invader whisk doesn’t look particularly man-made. With a weird alien-octopus-ish form and a radically different hemispherical radial gear, the Invader whisk looks great and probably performs better than its dull, metal, man-made counterpart. I wonder what this alien species will re-design next…

This tiny little dinosaur hiding in this lamp adds the perfect Halloween-y vibes to your home

Invite this little Brachiosaurus who wants to be left alone into your house with this cute lamp!

We are in the final phase of 2021, difficult as that may be to believe, the good thing is we are officially in the festive season. Autumn is in the air, bringing with it the chill and spook of Halloween to your homes. Meet Brachio, this miniature, cute, dinosaur-inspired character that invokes the feeling of wanting to be alone, while not wanting to be left completely alone.

What starts out as a simple white silhouette, on lighting up, it shows Brachio illuminated underneath the sheet. The form has a removable cylinder underneath that can be easily removed to help you switch the bulb. The attention to detail can be seen in the little tail sticking out from underneath the sheet.

Bringing to mind all the sheet-covered ghosts we are sure to see this Halloween, the Mood Lamp Brachio creates a cozy little corner of your home that is sure to bring a smile to your face.

In East Asia, the cartoon characters are created to match the country’s sentiments – the best example of this is the Japanese giant Sanrio who created Gudetama, a lazy egg yolk with a tiny bum that took the country by craze. Want to meet Brachio and get to know him better? Watch the animated clip that shows the moment Brachio burrows under his sheet!

Bringing this ghostly lamp into your home is sure to alleviate some gloom. If you have ever found yourself alone in a crowd, this mood lamp will surely ‘feel’ you and add some Halloween spirit to your bedside!

Turkey Dinner Candy Corn Is Like Willy Wonka’s 3-Course Dinner Gum

Remember that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when Violet Beauregard chomps down on the 3-course dinner chewing gum? Well, this is kind of like that, though it’s not going to turn you blue when you get to dessert. Honestly, when I first saw that Brach’s had come out with Turkey Dinner, Apple Pie, and Coffee Candy Corn, I had to double-check that it wasn’t April 1st. But nope, It’s October 3rd, and this stuff is real.

Apparently, they also worked in the flavors of green beans, cranberry sauce, and stuffing. I’m assuming that each candy is a different flavor, and they didn’t manage to cram them all into a single piece of candy corn. I think that would result in the same sort of grey mush that you get when you mix all the paint colors together, only with flavors instead of colors.

I know lots of people hate candy corn, so I’m doubtful that changing them to taste like a complete Thanksgiving meal will change their minds. On the other hand, if candy corn is a guilty pleasure for you this time of year, then maybe you’ll want to try a bag of these. They’re available for $2.49 a bag from Walgreens. I wonder if these make you sleepy after you eat them too.

This Skull-Shaped Toilet Wants You to Sit on Its Head

When is a toilet not just a toilet? When it’s the best toilet ever! An eagle-eyed shopper spotted this skull-shaped toilet at a hardware store somewhere in Europe, and now I must have one for my bathroom. Only I need it in time for Halloween, so I’m not sure that’s going to happen. But where can one buy a skull toilet? Well, upon further investigation, it looks like this is sold by a French company called WaterThrone, and it’s not just a skull toilet, but it’s also a Bluetooth speaker and has light-up eyes! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

The WaterThrone is available in other colors, like gold, black, and grey, along with custom colors, but I think the original off-white is the best since, um, our bones are that color. At least I think mine are, but I haven’t been able to check. The product listing doesn’t say how much it costs to sit on this head, but it does let us know that it can support up to 400 kilograms or 881.85 pounds, so that’s good news.

5-Foot Inflatable Chucky Doll Is Ready to Terrorize Your Neighborhood

From what I recall, Chucky was only three feet tall in the movies, and he was quite the tiny terror at that size. So can you imagine what sort of damage the little devil could do if he were five feet tall? Fortunately for you, you can always just pop this inflatable Chucky doll with a pin if he gets out of control and starts murdering your neighbors.

This light-up, blow-up Chucky doll is dressed up in his iconic Good Guys overalls and striped shirt and has all the facial scars he suffered over the years. Now, as soon as I typed “blow-up Chucky doll,” it dawned on me that there’s probably someone out there with a Chucky fetish, and things just got really creepy. Hopefully, I’m wrong, but as the Internet has proven time and time again, I’m almost certainly not.

You can grab the inflatable Chucky doll from Amazon (affiliate link) for about $60, and you’ll have a blow-up friend ’til the end.

Sub-Zero Has These Human Spine Candles on His Dining Table

Think your 12-foot-tall skeleton display is the creepiest Halloween display on the block? You might have to up your game by this year with something even more disturbing than a giant skinless corpse. When you’re setting the dinner table for guests, light up some of these spine-chilling human spine candles.

Bryan Lawrence of Creepy Candles makes these disturbingly realistic candles that look like they came out of a victim of Sub-Zero’s famed spine-rip fatality in Mortal Kombat. Despite the curvature of the spine, they seem to stand up just fine, so I’m guessing whoever donated their spine was good about their posture while they were alive. Each 10″ tall candle is made to order and is unscented because who wants a spine that smells like vanilla?  They’re sold individually over on Etsy for $28.99. Be sure to grab one of their bleeding hand candles while you’re at it.

 

4-Foot Inflatable Zombie Baby Yard Decoration Is a Real Product That Exists

Because what’s Halloween if not an opportunity for neighbors to question your taste and decency, this is the four-foot-long ‘Halloween Inflatable Outdoor Zombie Baby Blow Up Yard Decoration’ created by GOOSH and available on Amazon (affiliate link). I can already sense my neighborhood’s collective property value plummeting.

The inflatable baby has LEDs inside to illuminate the abomination at night and includes stakes for anchoring, or killing vampires. According to the product description, “Beside Halloween, it can be used as any other holiday decoration. Installed in the courtyard to enjoy Holiday with your family and spreading a happiness atmosphere to your neighborhoods.” Um, are they talking about the same inflatable zombie baby I’m looking at?

Obviously, this is the perfect Halloween yard decoration to encourage parents of would-be trick-or-treaters to pass your house on their way through the neighborhood. “They’re probably just handing out licorice anyways,” I imagine telling my children while hurrying them down the sidewalk.

Silicone Mold Bakes Life-Size Human Skull Cakes: Mmmm, Brains

Sure, you could bake a regular sheet cake for your next party, or you could make something a little bit more morbid with this 3D Skull Head Silicone Cake Mold available on Amazon (affiliate link). The mold creates both front and back skull pieces that, when attached with icing, create a life-size 8.5″ x 5.4″ x 7.1″ cranium. Well, an average life-size cranium. Mine is much larger.

This mold will come in handy around Halloween time. What do you think would make the best edible eyeballs to put in the eye sockets – gumballs? Jawbreakers? Pearl onions? Hardboiled eggs? Of course, those last two would probably be considered more tricks than treats. Especially if you also carved a hole in your skull cake and filled it with spaghetti to mimic brains.

Not much of a cake person? No worries, the silicone molds are equally suitable for making Rice Krispies treats or soap. But, speaking from experience, eating that much soap will probably upset your stomach. To my mom’s credit, though, I’ve never said another dirty word since.

Giant 12-Foot Tall Pumpkin Headed Vine Skeleton Halloween Decoration

Because what’s Halloween if not an opportunity to one-up all your neighbors with over-the-top decorations, this is the 12-ft Giant-Sized Inferno Pumpkin Skeleton with LifeEyes™ LCD Eyes available from Home Depot for $350. I can already imagine my wife asking what the $350 charge from Home Depot was and me lying and telling her it was for power tools. Matt from two doors down doesn’t stand a chance of out-Halloweening me this year!

The giant pumpkin-headed skeleton includes posable arms, a ribcage filled with a glowing flame effect, a fiery mouth, and LCD animated eyes that look around and stare at people passing by. Am I going to leave mine up year-round? For $350, you better believe I am, and I don’t care what the homeowner’s association has to say about it.

It goes without saying that if you have a 12-foot pumpkin king skeleton in your yard, you better be handing out full-size candy bars. Because I think we can all agree having a 12-foot Halloween decoration on your lawn but handing out candy corn or licorice is a recipe for getting your house toilet papered.

3D Printed Scary Hands Reaching Out of Wall: No Touching!

Because some people’s idea of interior design is the Addams Family mansion, these are the Scary Reaching Wall Hands 3D printed and sold by Etsy shop 3DDeluxeStore. Available in black and white in four different styles, they’ll make the perfect coat racks at your next Halloween party. Granted I won’t need to use the coat rack because I’ll be wearing a superhero cape.

The hands cost $10 – $22 depending on the style chosen (ranging in size from a toddler-sized hand to one that’s larger than most adult hands), or you can get a set of all four for $65. Will I rip all the towel bars out of the walls in my bathroom and replace them with these? No, this is a rental property and I’d like to get my full security deposit back.

I am tempted to buy one, that way the next time my wife asks me to lend a hand with something around the house I can tell her it’s fine if she just borrows the one on the wall. I’ll have a good laugh about it, but that laugh will cost me my place in bed that night.
