Science is a beautiful thing. Science has brought us many technological advancements, such as and including, air travel, tanning beds and mini-pizzas. But there are many things that science has yet to deliver on. And that’s got us kind of mad with science. We kind of want to have some words with science, okay? In the meantime, we’ll settle for assembling an incomplete list of all the things that we wish science would just get to working on, already. This list is by no means exhaustive, so feel free to include your own special requests in the comments. Keep reading »

A Bracelet That Predicts Your PMS Threat Level

Help for men everywhere is finally here! U.K. man, Kari Dorn, invented a PMS alert wristband. After being married for 16 years and hearing his buddies complain about their domestic woes — because a PMSing woman is so, so scary! — Dorn had a brilliant idea for a bracelet that lets men know at what time of the month they should be a wee more sensitive toward their lady friends. His PMS alert wristband uses temperature sensitive technology. Since a woman’s body temperature increases during ovulation and stays that way until right before her period, the bracelet changes color during prime PMS time. So if your man sees a threat level red, he knows to lay low, remember to take out the trash, and go on a chocolate run. Hopefully these bracelets are also stylish … for our sake.

Stroller/Scooter Hybrid Makes Traveling With Your Baby Fun!

I may not have a baby (yet!), but I’m still completely obsessed with this scooter/stroller hybrid created by award-winning Austrian inventor, Valentin Vodev. With the click of a switch, the Roller Buggy transforms from your usual baby stroller into a scooter capable of going up to 10 miles per hour. As soon as this becomes available to the masses (please, oh please), I’m getting one because I’m pretty sure my dog Lucca would fit securely in the front seat until Baby McDonell-Parry-Gosling comes into the world. Check the Roller Buggy in action, after the jump! Keep reading »

Kind Of Genius: Unbreakable Hangers

Here’s one of those things that makes you go, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Behold Monkey Hangers, which, quite clearly, are unbreakable hangers. I don’t know about you, but replacing trivial household items—like hangers, which I seem to go through like a box of cereal—really annoys me. Can someone please bring the “unbreakable” concept to the rest of the housewares department?

What do you hate constantly buying or replacing for your house, office, closet, car, etc.? [Yanko Design] Keep reading »

Gotta Have It: Robot Hair Washer

So, I hate showering. I find it tedious and boring and it’s hard to do my usual multi-tasking in there. But unfortunately, while I can get away with ye olde whore’s bath on off-shower days, my hair can get a little lackluster. That is why I want, nay, need, this robot hair washer (currently on display at Panasonic’s HQ in Osaka, Japan) installed in my apartment. I could lay there while the robot does its thing on my scalp, my hands free to channel surf, read, masturbate, pet Lucca, and post on The Frisky. The only question is — does it do head massages?

The Hair Dryer Phone: A Look At Beauty Salons Of The Future

Does anyone use those retro hair dryers that fit over your head anymore? Some Danish design students have figured out a way to make the vintage appliances new again, by converting them into phone booths. Problem is, everyone can hear your conversation—quite loudly. Although, if you had that hair dryer going at the same time, you’d need the extra volume. Pun intended. [Gizmodo.com] Keep reading »

Check out the top sex inventions of the past decade. Keep reading »

A Gas Mask Bra?

Here’s an invention that’s right up there with sliced bread: the gas mask bra. In the case of, say, an anthrax scare or a swine flu epidemic, the wearer of this lucky brassiere can simply slip it off, undo a few hooks and—ta da!—it’s a gas mask for her and a lucky friend. This genius invention has won an Ig Nobel Prize, a send-up of the real Nobel Prize given to scientists conducting “improbable research.” Inventors Elena Bodnar, Raphael Lee, and Sandra Marijan received their award last night during a ceremony at Harvard University. Though, we’re a little suspicious that this is just a gimmick to get women to take off their bras. [The Register] Keep reading »
