red rocket skates

While you may feel a little Kickstartered out thanks to a certain potato salad project, the ACTON R RocketSkates project is worth a look if you like the idea of roller skating minus all that pesky exercise. The project page describes them best:

WHAT ARE THE ACTON R ROCKETSKATES™?

They are electric, motorized skates. Simply strap the RocketSkates™ over your shoes and off you go!

Remote controllers? We don’t need remote controls! Your hands are now free for interpretive dance moves as you cruise about town- your feet control the skates.

Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The skates communicate with each other so they maintain the same speed and behavior.

RocketSkates™ connect to smartphone via the ACTON App. You can monitor your skates and their performance. Route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status, games, and social interactivity; the app keeps you in touch with other RocketSkaters.

A Software Developer Kit (SDK) will be available for developers interested in creating games and app features for RocketSkates™.

I say best because, of course, I’d describe them as “OMG SKATES THAT MAKE YOU GO ZOOOOOOOM!”

Currently, they come in 3 models: the R-6 lasts for 45 minutes/6 miles, the R-8 lasts for 70 minutes/8 miles, and the R-10 lasts for 90 minutes/10 miles.

To the untrained eye, this handmade bracelet is just a bunch of pretty beads. Whovians will recognize it as a sonic screwdriver. They’re based on the sonic screwdrivers of the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors so you can adorn you wrist with whichever is your favorite.

tights

These beautiful The Little Mermaid silhouette tights put one of the movie’s most famous scenes on your legs. There’s Ariel on one leg and Eric on the other, just as he’s about to kiss the girl and break the curse. If it wasn’t for that wicked Ursula, the whole movie would have ended with this moment.

It’s no fun having to wear a tie, unless it’s one of these silk space shuttle console neckties. They’re available in either narrow or standard widths in a variety of colors. Each has communications systems diagrams of the space shuttle and will put you in the company of real astronauts. From the product page:

Our spacecraft schematic and blueprint neckties have thus far graced the necks of the following astronauts: Scott Carpenter, Mercury-Atlas 7; Thomas Stafford Apollo 10; Neil Armstrong Apollo 11; Dick Gordon & Al Bean, Apollo 12; Al Worden, Apollo 15; and Charlie Duke, Apollo 16. (Really! We even have pictures!)

Just think, should you be called upon to fly a shuttle, all you;ll have to do is look at your tie and you’ll be good to go.

iron man leggings hula hoop

I can barely make a hula hoop rotate, but Rachael Lust is a hula hoop Jedi Master. She does all kinds of insane movies with a hula hoop, and I choose to believe the Iron Man leggings she’s wearing are responsible for her success. Maybe. She wears them in a recent video that’s basically a supercut of awesome tricks, and it is very impressive to watch.

Watch all the hula hooping action after the break.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans will definitely dig this TMNT Turtles Mask Acrylic Necklace. The necklace pictured above features the classic mask/eye combo of Raphael (my personal favorite), but all of the other masks of the Turtles are available as well. Anyway, I’m off to order a whole pizza for myself… not sure why I got a craving for pizza so suddenly.

3d printed mst3k glasses

Joel Hodgson went to Albuquerque Comic Expo last weekend and was given a cool gift by a Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan: 3D printed glass frames that, apparently, glow in the dark. They were made by Patrick Schierstein, and he’s posted the file on Thingiverse so anyone with access to a 3D printer can have a pair of MST3K specs!
