The Awesome 360 3D Maze Ball

The Awesome 360 3D Maze Ball

This little sphere contains a really cool three-dimensional maze with a ball bearing inside. Your job is to get the little ball from one end of the maze to the other. You’ve got to rotate the sphere through all three physical dimensions, and get our old friend gravity to pull the ball through loops, whorls, around corners, up walls, around pits, and across precipices to get from end to end.

Shuriken Magnets

Shuriken Magnets

I can’t think of a better way to leave a message on the fridge than making it appear like it was pinned their with a shuriken. Sure there is no way on earth that a shuriken could actually stick into a refrigerator, but suspend disbelief and enjoy the optical illusion. These things look great, a perfect (though somewhat pricey) stocking stuffer.

The Webble: Making Your Office Chair Fun!

The Webble: Making Your Office Chair Fun!

The Webble is an active footrest which claims to have some health benefits, but really it seems like just a cool toy. It rolls on four smooth gliding coasters and features a spring suspension and mesh membrane for comfort and flexibility. According to the guys who made it, “The Webble’s open frame combines strength and style in an unmistakable form that challenges the assumption that life under your desk couldn’t possibly be fun.” Bring on the next office day!

Shot Chilling Liquor Dispenser

Shot Chilling Liquor Dispenser

We’ve long felt we really deserved a shot chilling machine, and while many of the ones we’ve seen on the market are aimed solely at getting your Jagermeister cold, we’ve found a shot chiller that will fit most liquor bottles. Just pop in the bottle, add ice and salt, and wait a minute (literally, 60 seconds) for your bottle to be ice cold. We haven’t tried it to see how effective it is, but we’re adding it to our Christmas list.

The revolving door, definately.

Ryan Says: December 12, 2008 at 8:35 am

Perfect Green Invention!

conedude13 Says: December 12, 2008 at 8:39 am

well, this week was a tough decision. that 3d maze ball is pretty sweet, but my vote went to The World’s First Energy Generating Revolving Door since it is so simple and has a positive impact. Can i get one in my house?! Bathroom door?! :P

About Time They Found A Use For All That Wasted Energy….

Justin Says: December 12, 2008 at 9:16 am

As much I really wanted to vote for the power generating revolving door…I couldn’t pass up on getting some more real estate in my freezer! The shot chilling liquor dispenser is by far the coolest gadget of the week. Hopefully the Shot Chiller will fit my dear friend Johnny Walker!

Clay Says: December 12, 2008 at 9:19 am

Digital picture frame – soo cool!

Achmed Says: December 12, 2008 at 9:23 am

Gotta go with revolving door…

Brandi H. Says: December 12, 2008 at 10:16 am

The Webble. Fun and exercise…at work!

Jason Says: December 12, 2008 at 10:49 am

The webble is just silly, but silly enough to be a great idea. Health issues from poor office ergonomics are increasingly common and this seems like an easy way to keep you moving while you work.

Donnell Says: December 12, 2008 at 11:14 am

I just knew I was going to vote for the magnets until I scrolled down and saw “The World’s First Energy Generating Revolving Door”. They should make everything people do generate energy i.e. energy generating carpet (patent pending)LOL

Jenna Says: December 12, 2008 at 2:04 pm

I think the energy generating revolving door is wonderful. I’m with Donnell in having more ideas like that.

Jabberwock Says: December 12, 2008 at 3:19 pm

The first ever somewhat useful digital frame?

jerry Says: December 12, 2008 at 4:10 pm

the door is a really cool concept, i can just imagine people walking round and round…

Jessica Says: December 12, 2008 at 9:52 pm

I love the door — so efficient.

Neagle Says: December 13, 2008 at 3:25 am

Anything that promotes ice cold vodka is a keeper in my book.

Juergen Says: December 13, 2008 at 11:44 am

The shuriken. What better way to show your boss you’re annoyed than by putting those on the office whiteboard ;-)

Justin Says: December 13, 2008 at 3:27 pm

Man I love the Shuriken Magnets…lol Good way to make it seem like a ninja broke into the house and stole some milk….wait….THATS WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MILK!!

Skippy Says: December 13, 2008 at 4:13 pm

Too cool.

Helard Says: December 14, 2008 at 10:52 pm

Use stairs, manual operated doors and this kind of clever devices (The World’s First Energy Generating Revolving Door) are the future!

John Says: December 15, 2008 at 7:48 am

I think the mobion has a lot of potential.
