Smarty Ring


Smarty-Ring-5

Smart watches have been all the rage on the tech scene, but we’ve yet to see a smart ring. Well that’s exactly what Smarty Ring is, and seeing that they just surpassed their goal on IndieGoGo, this concept may soon become a reality. Rather than having to pull out your phone a hundred times a day to check for updates on Facebook, you can now get all of your text, chat, and social network notifications sent right to your fingers. Utilizing Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, this smart ring will work on both iOS and Android powered devices (with an interactive app built for both), and also lets users manage their calls from their fingers as well. You can do everything from accepting/rejecting incoming calls to speed dial and emergency calls. There’s even a built-in butt call alert for those accidental dials. The Smarty Ring also comes with a built-in clock that displays five different time zones, and even includes a stop watch as well for training in the gym. The ring itself is crafted from allergy free surgical stainless steel, uses LED lights for the display, and includes a wireless charger.

Finger Trap Handbags By James Piatt

These handbags by American designer James Piatt are carried by clamping fingers in woven tubes similar to Chinese finger trap puzzles. The weight of the leather bags creates the pull needed to tighten the weave and secure fingers in the tubes. Finger traps are often used as practical jokes, involving the wearer struggling to remove their digits from either end of the tube, which is usually woven from bamboo. Both ends of the trap have to be pushed inward to relax the mesh and release the fingers. “The finger trap is often used as a metaphor for a problem that can be overcome by relaxing,” says Piatt. Piatt’s small purse comes with one fastening, whereas the larger bag has three finger traps but can also be carried over the shoulder using a removable strap. Laser-cut tabs interlock along the seams instead of stitching to create joints that look similar to the tubes.

The Lurkiest Commercial Ever.


I loved this years Superbowl, and it’s commercials, and I tried to get off of the subject once it was over, but this one Doritos commercial keeps popping up on TV, and puts me on the floor each time.  It aired during Super Bowl 45, but I’m 90% certain I didn’t see it.  With a funky blend of McLovin (not the Christopher Mintz-Plasse, but someone who looks just like him) Doritos, and an unprecedented amount of “lurkiness”, this commercial drops my jaw every single time I see it.
