Dude's Must See Products for September 2022
Know what I've got to say about Dude's must see products for September 2022? The Mini Jumbotron and Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey. That is all.
Note: All must see products for September 2022 are priced as they were at printing on October 4, 2022. Pricing, and availability, are subject to change.
Fireball-Shooting Harry Potter Wands
These Harry Potter Wands that shoot real fireballs are here to wish you and yours a Lumos!, an Incendio!, maybe even, if you don't follow fire safety practices, an Avada Kedavra! Halloween!
At printing, the fireball-shooting wands appeared to be relatively new Asian imports, so who knows how well they work...and how likely they are to malfunction and light your Halloween decorations and friend Cornelius' hair on fire during use. On the flame-brightside, though, we do have a precedent around here for entertainment-based fire flinging in the Pyro Mini Fireball Shooter from Ellusionist. As far as I know, it is perfectly safe to use (responsibly) and has been around for at least 8 years without (major) incident.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey Trailer
Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey poses the question, "What happens when Christopher Robin abandons his beloved childhood friends Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore?" And then...they answer it.
Spoiler Alert: Eeyore dies. And the rest of the animals? They. Turn. Wild.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey is the horror movie I never knew I always needed. No wait. I mean, it's the sick and twisted slasher flick I never knew I never needed. I don't need Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey, and while I only realized that after seeing the Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey trailer, I kind of wish it didn't exist for me to see in the first place. Why the A.A. Milne would I want to watch some of my best storybook memories turn into nightmares?!
E159: What Is This Thing?
Hints: 1) Think of it as a tool for snobs in a hurry; 2) Use it when you need some fresh air; 3) Its favorite color is red, but it can dabble in white sometimes too.
Spooky Luxury: 13 Indulgent Gifts for Halloween
Ha! 13! There are 13 indulgent gifts for Halloween on my spooky luxury product roundup, and I didn't even do it on purpose! It just happened. 13! Ha! Or rather, Boo!
The Boomerang Bed is the perfect name for Portuguese designer Joao Teixeira's piece of sleep-work-hang furniture. With its slidable work, dining, and streaming table, and relaxing, minimalist aesthetic, it's the bed, day and night, you'll keep coming back to.
The Mini Jumbotron
The Mini Jumbotron! It's an oxymoron for your mancave! An oxymoron that's so cool it's fire too, with the design's quad of TVs able to pump out 4 different channels for sports fans during the NCAA Tournament or on NFL Sunday, or all the same channel for the Super Bowl or Fight Night.
Power Idolz Wireless Charging Docks
I don't even know where to begin with Power Idolz Wireless Charging Docks. How about, that they're wireless charging docks is the least interesting thing about them? These "characters" from iconic 70s and 80s movies, plus a Sonic the Hedgehog thrown in for good measure, feature the arms, legs, and notable accessories of ET, Marty McFly from Back to the Future, one of the Ghostbusters, and Quint from Jaws. But instead of heads and chests, maker Numskull has given the Power Idolz exact miniature replicas of the VHS cassettes and gaming cartridges they represent.
Micro Smoke Machine
Where there's smoke, there's fire, but where there's juuust a little bit of smoke, hopefully there's a Micro Smoke Machine. Creator Wayne Berendhuysen of Wayne's Workshop calls his terrific handheld gadget the Costronica Pocket Smoke. Powered by 3 x AAA batteries, it can pump out the foggy ambience for all your wee cosplay, costume, photography, and Little Engine That Could endeavors.
E160: What Is This Thing?
Hints: 1) The guy who wants those damn kids to get off his lawn will probably love it; 2) It gives fun the boot; 3) It will block every shot.
Mechanical Metal Jellyfish Kinetic Sculpture
You can trust me when I say this Mechanical Metal Jellyfish Kinetic Sculpture from MCA Studio is the coolest thing you'll see all week - all month if you're really into kinetic sculptures or jellyfish, all year if you're really into both! Or you can check out the artist's video of the kinetic metal jellyfish kineticking for yourself here.
I know, it's like, Hmmm, trust the Dude and move on, or click open a whole new tab and sacrifice 15 seconds of my life verifying whether or not he's right. Conundrum, conundrum.
Mechanical Mouse Jiggler (So They Think You're Working)
This mechanical mouse jiggler is recommended by 5/5 slackers, underpaid employees, people out of PTO who need some TO, and dudes and ladies with a weird compulsion never to let their computers log off or go to sleep.
A base made to hold most standard-size mice, the mechanical mouse jiggler ensures your mouse stays active on your desktop or laptop even if you are not. According to maker Vaydeer, the sneaky gadget is undetectable by IT departments, so if your company is dictatorial about keeping tabs on its workers' working / non-working habits, your efforts to deceive them won't be discovered.
Miracle Melting Witch - Melts Again & Again
The Miracle Melting Witch will get you, my pretty...or at least she'll say she'll get you, my pretty, as she melts down into a green-and-black blob with a broomstick again and again.
