Heated Panty Liners: Brilliant Method For Easing Period Pains Or Weird Way To Set Your Vagina On Fire?

Those of us with with a uterus know what it’s like to be desperate for a heating pad to ease the writhing, stabbing pain from menstruation cramps. It turns out, we could go for a little more relief directly at the source —  by way of Korea, there now exist heated panty liners. The blog British Beauty Blogger posted pictures of the pad, which her friend picked up on a trip to Japan. She said the package contains a “heated sachet,” which gets very hot and is not to be worn “directly in contact with your nethers.” I guess it’s not so much a “heated panty liner” as a heated object you wear it underneath a panty liner?  Either way, the whole concept of a heated panty liner seems similar to stuffing those handwarmers that people put in their mittens down your panties.

If any Frisky readers speak Korean, I would love a translation on the packaging of what I think are the suggested uses for a heated panty linter because half of them don’t make any sense from the pictures. Skiing? Sitting on a chair? Holding a baby? I don’t even want to risk any burns on my vag and/or inner thighs, so my only suggested use is laughing at this.

urinal invented with sink on top

I always knew that boys were kind of gross. But it’s apparently worse than I thought: a Latvian designer has created a built-in sink on urinals to encourage more men to wash their hands after peeing.

According to a study by Michigan State University, 15 percent of men don’t wash their hands at all after handling their sweaty junk, compared with only seven percent of women. These icky icksters then go touch your elevator buttons, bus poles, and salad tongs at Whole Foods. The study also found that only one in 20 people wash their hands long enough to kill dangerous germs after using the facilities. Norovirus for everybody! Keep reading »

I don’t know about y’all, but ever since I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the new iOS 6 update, the battery has been hastily dying with every iHoroscope and Instagram fix. Feeling mine and millions of other women’s wireless woes, Chicagoan Liz Ormesher Salcedo created the Everpurse, a small clutch that actually charges your phone when placed into a side pocket.

As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few moments in my life where I’m not wondering, Where the hell am I? So it was with great interest that I read about a pair of “No Place Like Home” GPS shoes that can guide you to any destination with a Dorothy-esque click of your heels. Creator Dominic Wilcox explains how the magical footwear work:

“After uploading your required destination to the shoes via a piece of custom-made mapping software and a USB cable, the GPS, which is embedded in the heel, is activated by a heel click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination.”

Right now the shoes are just a prototype, but I need them to become a reality, like, now. In the meantime, I might have to DIY my own by duct taping my smart phone to the toe of my red sequin pumps. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” [Dominic Wilcox]

Silly toys may be child’s play, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t big business. Here are 11 of the dumbest items that, in the hands of children, turned into pure gold for the people who sold them.

Silly Bandz
These goofy wristbands are just silicone rubber, formed into shapes. That’s it. A pack of 24 sells for around $5 and was invented by Robert Croak, who told CBS news in 2010, “I definitely feel like I’m one of the luckiest men alive.” Seeing that this invention has led to a fortune estimated at $15 million, we’d say that sounds about right.

Um. Sold. And they only cost $60. I need a Hugvie, the vibrating communication pillow. You just put your cell phone in a pouch in its minimalist human form, cuddle it, and it vibrates to the rhythm of the voice of the person you’re talking to. “The two vibrators produce a throbbing sound like a heartbeat. That pulse can get faster or stronger, depending on the volume and tone of the caller’s voice,” said inventor Hiroshi Ishiguro. Sounds exciting. This may be the thing that gets me to start talking on the phone again.  [LA Weekly]

Wear This Mask And Control Your Dreams?

Ever wished you could to go bed and dream about exactly what you want? The two 30-year-old inventors behind the Remee sleep mask say you can. Here’s how it supposedly works: The $95 mask contains six red LED lights that are apparently bright enough to grab your brain’s attention while you slumber, yet dim enough to allow you to keep sleeping. Via a website, you set a pattern for the lights to follow when you enter REM sleep—the stage that features the most dreaming, the Daily Mail UK reports. Read more…

Meet SHIRI, the Japanese butt robot. She’s legless and headless, but seems to enjoy a sensual massage to the silicon skin covering her posterior. Like a human woman, her artificial muscles can react to being spanked, caressed and groped. As this video helpfully notes, “The user may also feel SHIRI bracing after feeling a slap from the user.” I guess she hasn’t yet read 50 Shades Of Grey yet? [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

Your old printer has served you well. It’s dutifully churned out term papers, contracts, and last-minute photo gifts. But wouldn’t it be nice to upgrade to a printer that prints chocolate? Seriously though: a team of researchers in the UK have devised a machine that does just that. Apparently the magical chocolate printer works like other 3D printers currently used in manufacturing, creating a 3-dimensional shape by slowly building up very thin layers of material, which in this case just happens to be the most delicious material known to man. At the moment, the chocolate printer is still a prototype, but lead scientist Dr. Liang Hao has big plans: “Chocolate has a lot of social purposes,” she says, “so our intention is to develop a community and share the designs, ideas and experience[s].” Yep, a chocolate-themed social network. The future sounds pretty delicious, huh? [BBC News]
