Poppin Hot Oven Mitt

It’s hard to resist popping bubble wrap. The stuff is great for packing breakables too, but we’d never suggest using it to pull a hot pan out of the oven. Fred & Friends‘ bubble wrap oven mitt is made from heat-shielding silicone, so you won’t get burned. Sadly, it’s not poppable.

Inside the Microwave: Ivory Soap

We’ve seen tons of videos of stuff destroyed inside of microwaves, but the footage is shot through the mesh door, and hard to see. Steve Mould figured out a way to record inside his oven without damaging the camera, providing a detailed look at what happens inside.

Pagani Huayra Roadster

This sexy open top beast is even better than the coupe, somehow dropping over 175 lb, and rocking a 764 hp Mercedes-AMG V12 engine. We think they should only make the carbon fiber and titanium supercar in this epic blue color scheme. Want one? All 99 of the $2.4m cars are already sold.

LivWild Pocket Chainsaw

This 26? pocket saw has 3 times as many teeth as similar saws, and they work bidirectionally, making quick work of cutting branches and logs. It’s a must for your survival kit if you spend any time in the woods. Includes a pouch, a bonus mylar blanket, and survival guidebook.

Roomscale Wireless Power

Scientists from Disney Research are working on tech which uses something called “quasistatic cavity resonance” to emit magnetic fields that can safely deliver up to 1900 watts of wireless power to devices placed anywhere in a room. It’s still in its infancy, but the result is awesome.

Painting with Glowsticks

The Science Channel’s series Street Science presents a neat experiment, mixing bulk quantities of the nasty goo inside of glowsticks to produce a variety of vibrant colors. The result is a new abstract painting medium. Needless to say, don’t play with these chemicals at home.

Trayvax Element Wallet

This special edition of Trayvax’s flattened out wallet looks even better than the original. It’s made from stainless steel, top grain leather, and military-spec paracord, and holds up to 10 cards or 5 bills. It’s 100% American made, and 10% of profits go to non-profit charities.

A Series of A capella Events

Cracked Screen: A Snapchat Story

State-shaped Cutting Boards

Brooklyn outfit American Heirloom makes this series of sustainably-forested bamboo plywood cutting boards in the shapes of all 50 U.S. states, as well as Puerto Rico and Washington DC. We wonder if you collected them all if you could make a giant puzzle of the U.S.

Woody Allen : A Career in Ten Lines
