    This brilliant (but obviously insane) Japanese chef created the Water Fryer, which is a fish bowl at the bottom of his deep fryer. Because the oil and water don't mix, as long as the fish stay low they're okay. Plus the crumbs from the deep fryer drop to the bottom which the fi... / Continue →

    Tool Silverware is a set of silverware with tools built into the back. Or tools with silverware built into the back. It's hard to tell which. I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be both though. Even men wouldn't get excited about using a spoon covered in motor oil. Unless it w... / Continue →

    If you're having a tough time meditating and have $12,000 to spend, check out the Transport, an egg-shaped fiberglass vessel outfitted with speakers and an array of light-emitting diodes. It's described as a "perceptual pod," which means it doesn't do anything you couldn't alr... / Continue →

    The CrushPak is a new yogurt container which uses 36% less plastic and let's you squeeze the yogurt into your mouth via, uh, crushing. Although I don't see how this is any better than Go-Gurt's squeeze tubes. I guess squeezing a little container is so much more mature than sque... / Continue →

    Far East Organization has commissioned the Office for Metropolitan Architecture to build this residential high-rise which stands at 153 meters tall. I'm all for clever architecture but this thing looks insane. I'm pretty sure they're breaking one or two laws of physics. Can you... / Continue →

    For $102 you can get this pillow book, which is a, uh, pillow that looks like a book. Although that basically describes every book I had in college. And desk. And sometimes floor of a lecture hall. Source... / Continue →
