predator son of a bitch patch

Remember that scene in Predator when Dutch and Dillon first see each other? Dutch says, “You son of a bitch!” as a friendly greeting, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers clasp their muscled arms together in a gratuitous way. This silly but great patch from Future Zine captures that moment. It might be the greatest patch ever made. It should be a merit badge or something.

Check out the scene from the movie after the break…

thing

This mesmerizing video shows a woman transforming one piece of fabric into pretty much any garment just by changing how she wraps it around her body. It is like the Thneed of Dr. Seuss fame and it’s incredibly cool to watch it transform.

beard baubles 1

If your facial hair isn’t in the holiday spirit, Beard Baubles may be the solution. The shiny accessories were designed by London ad agency Grey London. Employees of the agency, Mike Kennedy and Pauline Ashford, were given the job of coming up with something different for the company Christmas card, and it looks like they succeeded.

The proceeds of the beard decorations go a charity called Beard Season (they raise awareness about melanoma), and when the founder of the charity shared the above photo on Instragram, everyone started placing orders. So many people became interested that Grey London is now sold out of the wacky accessory. They’re hoping to add more stock before the holiday.

hp infinity scarf

I can’t get over how cute this Harry Potter scarf by Etsy seller Nerd Alert Creations is. The cotton design features several symbols from the series including the Dark Mark, the Deathly Hallows symbol, the Knight Bus, the lightning scar, a Death Eater mask, and more. The cartoon-y design and bright colors aren’t necessarily what you think of when it comes to Harry Potter, but it totally works.

The HDD Watch takes a tiny piece of old technology and turns it into a unique and super nerdy timepiece. It’s the work of a Frenchman named Jean Jérôme who builds the watches out of obsolete Microdrives and even gives them hands that look like reading arms. He also created a printed watchband that looks like a circuit board.

The watch is currently up for funding on indiegogo where he set a goal of raising enough cash to build 500 additional watches. He’s more than doubled his funding goal with several weeks still remaining on his campaign. You can secure a watch for about $120 and have it on your wrist sometime later this month.
