  1. Wear This Superhero Cologne to Cover Up the Stink of Your Manly, Heroic Angst

    "My parents are dead, but man do I smell good!"

    Sadly, these superhero colognes exist only in the mind and the concept art of web design company Animink. But can any of us really be said to exist? The cosmos is so unthinkably vast that all human experience is only a pinprick within its cavernous emptiness. If we have no effect at all on the darkness around us, can we really claim to be at all? Who are you? Who am I? Who is Batman, and what does he smell like? Rancid sweat with slight undertones of leather and sweat, right? It has to be gross.

  3. New Design May Revolutionize Sharing Armrests With Strangers

    And where will we lean then?

    Traveling can force a lot of uncomfortable intimacy between strangers, and nowhere is that more apparent than the fraught battleground of armrests--but Hong Kong-based Paperclip Design might have made a slight alteration to the traditional model and ended the Personal Space Wars for good.

  4. This Combination Briefcase/Barbecue Is Dangerously Classy

    George Foreman, you have been usurped.

    There's nothing better than barbecuing without being constrained to one's own backyard (I guess.) Thankfully, this $341.14 Mon Oncle portable barbecue set from Spanish design company RS Barcelona gives you the liberty to cook your meat when and were you want.

  5. BleepBleeps Wants to Use Tech and Design to Make Parenting Easier

    One of them checks your sperm count and it's called "Master Bates" and we love these.

    As someone who spent most of last night rocking a teething infant, I can tell you: parenting is hard. It will always be hard, but maybe technology and design can make it a little easier. That's the goal of BleepBleeps. They're a line of connected devices built to make parenting go a bit more smoothly.

    The Mary Sue

  9. Blind 97-Year-Old Artist Makes Gorgeous Images Using MS Paint Better Than We Ever Could

    This puts my circle-inside-another-circle to shame.

    When Hal Lasko first retired from his long career of typography and graphic design, he wanted to dedicate all his time to personal art projects. So unlike other old people who get roped into learning about computers, when his grandchildren showed him the Windows 95 version of Microsoft Paint, he became pretty enraptured by it. The results are more amazing than anything made with MS Paint has a right to be, but we're not complaining.

  10. Don’t Break Your Arm, But If You Break Your Arm Get This Sweet 3D Printed Cast

    Getting hurt isn't awesome, but this cast is almost awesome enough to make it worth getting hurt.

    I'm fortunate enough to never have broken a bone, and part of the reason I'm so glad about that is traditional plaster casts seem torturous. The idea of having my arm or leg encased in heavy plaster is almost as unappealing as the idea of snapping a bone in the first place. Designer Jake Evill has a better solution -- The Cortex. It's a 3D-printed cast, and it's awesome. I'm not saying I want to break a bone now, but I kind of want to break a bone now.
