ElectricStyles is reinventing the necktie as a stylish LED device that reacts to sounds with illuminated patterns.

The ties measure 17″ and require two AAA batteries that are stored in a pack that “hides comfortably” in the back of the tie. They’re also reasonably priced, which will no doubt inspire multitudes of people to push their company dress code to the limit.

Swiss watchmaker Hautlence decided that a wristwatch doesn’t have to be a watch at all – it can be a $12,000 analog game.

Their new Playground Labyrinth allows wearers to navigate a tiny 18k gold ball around a maze by moving your wrist and making you look like your arm is having an uncontrollable spasm. The goal is to get the ball to fall into a hole on the face, at which point it will disappear into the game’s inner mechanism. By turning the crown dial on the side, it will magically re-emerge in a second hole at the beginning of the maze.

Although the device doesn’t include any provision for telling the time, it’s probably unnecessary, since those who can afford the massive price tag probably have schedules that consist of kicking back and rolling in money.

1-7From That’s Nerdalicious: A man’s home is his castle, and if you need an appropriately tiny goblet from which to consume your libations while reclining on thy royal La-Z-Boy and watching thy noble TV, then check out this Knight’s shot glass set. It’s perfect for helping you forget the horrors of battle (aka your crappy job).

The stainless steel vessels can accommodate 1 1/2 ounces of His Majesty’s chosen booze and are available in a set of four, for those occasions when thy noble bros gather together to form the council of the sh*tfaced.

Each glass measures 2 5/8″ tall x 2″ diameter, but are not stately enough to withstand an encounter with thy regal dishwasher or microwave.

1-22From That’s Nerdalicious: If you aspire to be a crazy cat lady when you grow up, you can advertise the fact in the school cafeteria with this themed lunchbox from Archie McPhee.

The metal box measures 8” x 7” x 4” and comes with a vinyl dangle and a free sticker reaffirming your feline allegiance. For added realism, you can fill it with a cat lady lunch, which would likely consist of partially stolen food covered with a fine layer of cat hair.

1-1The Kotoba no Haoto cafe in Japan has earned a name for itself due to its rustic interiors and selection of books. However, their most popular draw could be the cat-shaped parfaits offered after 1pm.

1-15Yuki of “Yukitchen” used potatoes, soy milk, vegetable stock and some Star Wars-inspiration to create a vegan Jabba the Hutt shepherd’s pie.

A sculpted mashed potato Jabba was positioned atop a stew throne and sent through the oven to achieve a golden brown hue. Additional color was then added with wet matcha powder before the familiar facial expression was created using dried seaweed.
