Looking for a snail shell helmet? You’ve come to the right/only place. These custom helmets from Etsy seller HighNoonCreations are made from rubber and assembled and painted by hand.

They don’t come with the tentacles though—which is baffling. I can’t outfit a snail posse with non-tentacled helmets.

There are a lot of college graduates out there, so you’ll want to stand out from the crowd. You can start by wearing an LED graduation cap with scrolling messages on the top.

Human person Dan Barkus has customized his graduation cap with a Teensy 3.2 board and a small Bluetooth module connected to a full-color LED that can display a handful of pre-designed graphics or, if he’s feeling a little cheeky, a customized scrolling message. The commands are sent to his hat via his phone. That is not a sentence I ever expected to have to write in my life, but there you have it.

Check out a video of the hat in action along with a second video highlighting how the cap was made.

The Blonde Swan Hat Boutique has all sorts of cool things to put on your head, but I’m partial to the vintage-style Wonder Woman products.

I think I’d do the vintage cap with the vintage goggles. No eagles—I want to keep it simple. How about you?

Check out the rest of the lineup below.

rocking chair hat

Sorry, Grandma, but you’re getting replaced. This invention by students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex of ECAL is called the Low-Tech Factor Rocking-Knit is able to knit a hat all on its own — all you have to do is rock back and forth. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke: the Rocking-Knit was built for real, and it is magnificent.

See it in action below.

Kimonos! While many of you will think of them as that thing Dr. Kelso from Scrubs wore after having sex with his mistress, (Great job on the timely reference there, Ben – Ed.) they are in fact a traditional Japanese garment with a long and storied history, from the Iromuji worn during tea ceremonies, to the Susohiki worn by geisha and dancers.

Now they’re hats. Yeah. Take that, tradition.

This Top Hat Has Brains


Some mad genius invented a steampunk top hat with a second brain that I’m guessing you can use as secondary storage. That’s where I would put all of the non-vital information and useless facts that squeeze out all of the important things in my main brain.

Like I started watching The Man In The High Castle the other day and recognized Allan Havey in the Episode “Sunrise” as a dude who use to have a talk show called “Night After Night” on Comedy Central in the early ’90s.

Yeah, let’s zoom that info right to my tiny top hat brain. Might put an embarrassing memory or two in there just so I can forget about it whenever the hat is off.
