These 30 Inventions Will Transform Your Kitchen Into Awesomeness. #14 Though… What The?

When you have extra money to burn, it’s difficult not to spend it on stuff that’s just… cool. Stores like Sky Mall and Brookstone are full of strange gadgets that you’d probably never use, but want just the same. Some of these strange (and sometimes costly) tools could come it handy. However, it’s doubtful you’d use them enough to justify their cost. These are some of the best kitchen gadgets out there that you would never find in your normal kitchen.

1.) Pacman: helping bakers the world over.

2.) Need to store knives and satisfy your need to stab people?

3.) Or want to freak out your guests?

4.) It’s hard to say what this does, but it looks painful.

5.) Separating egg yolks can be creepy…

6.) Or adorable!

7.) Give your toothpicks their very own form of transportation.

8.) Did you know that bananas are heat resistant?

9.) I don’t need no corn on no cobs.

10.) Feel like Wolverine with this finger fork.

11.) When cooking is like an awesome science experiment.

12.) Give your dinner guests nightmares with these gadgets.

13.) This creepy/adorable little guy will help you dice cherries.

14.) Evil robot … or coffee machine?

15.) Peeling potatoes is for fools.

16.) S’MORES!

17.) Cut pizza like a boss.

18.) Crispy microwave bacon? YES.

19.) This mixer tries to be cute, but it’s just evil.

20.) It’s hard to say what this is, aside from terrifying.

21.) Spinning your own fork to eat spaghetti is for losers.

22.) Make your own sauce at home… or grind up things for fun.

23.) Stop mixing like a caveman.

24.) Picking up the jug to pour it is archaic. Use this rocking thing instead.

25.) Want to serve drinks? Use something cool to do so, like this.

26.) Two words: Custom toast.

27.) Chop things like a cool kid.

28.) Save dem bananas.

29.) Crack nuts like Hilary Clinton

30.) Mr. Penguin helps steep your tea the appropriate amount of time.

Even if I’d only use these things once a year, it would be totally worth it to have it in my kitchen. Nothing impresses family and friends like custom toast designs (am I right?). Share these awesome inventions by clicking below!

Amazing Rube Goldberg Machine Powered By Light And Magnifying Glasses.

To advertise their new fiber optics Internet connection called hikari (which means light in Japanese), Japanese Internet provider au made this really cool ad featuring a Rube Goldberg machine that is powered by nothing but light and magnifying glasses…well and gravity too, of course.

A Rube Goldberg machine is an over-engineered contraption that is designed to perform a very simple task in a complicated way (usually using some kind of chain reaction). You could say that this epic creation works at the speed of light! Very impressive.

(Source: au on YouTube)

The sound design alone in that video was simply amazing. Put on some good headphones and listen to how wide the soundscape is. As an audiophile I was more impressed by that than the video, and that’s saying something because the video was insanely awesome.

This Girl Was Sick Of Her Tiny City Apartment Balcony. Wait Til You See What She Did To It.

Some might think that the outdoor deck in your apartment is just a waste of space. After all, you’re never out there, and it takes up space you’d love to add to your bedroom. But have you ever actually thought of how you could put it to better use? Well this Portlandian was inspired one day after complaining about Big City livin’ and the result is awesome-sauce. Check it out:

She always wanted a backyard, so her roommate surprised her with one. The cat was not impressed 😉

First she lined the balcony with a tarp for easy cleanup, then she spread some soil.

She then put a small fence to stop that lovely cat from trying to climb through the bars.

She rolled out the sod and gave it some water and they lined up some extra plants.

And of course, a chair was added, i.e., relax station.

Project complete!

2 months later, lawn is still going great, with only one small dead spot where everyone stands the most.

According to them, they let the grass grow without interruption.

Unless it gets to be too much, and only then do they break out scissors.

Add in a few lights, and you’ve got a great place to chillaxe.

How cool is that? Well I know what my weekend project is going to be. Toughest part now is getting MY roommate to agree 😉 Source: Imgur via Reddit

We See This Every Day Without Realizing It. This Photographer Just Captured It Beautifully.

No matter how familiar you are with the biggest cities in the United States, I guarantee you haven’t seen any of them quite like this before. Photographer Stephen Wilkes has been widely recognized for his fine art and commercial photography, and he found a new way to present these major cities. His photo series, titled Day To Night, shows the cityscapes in an entirely new light. Each of the transition images is actually collection of moments, unlike most normal photos which capture one moment in time. It takes about 50 photographs out of around 1,500 shots taken over the course of 12-15 hours to make just one of these photographs. During these shoots, Stephen doesn’t take bathroom breaks and barely eats. He very cautiously oversees the shoot so that the transition from day to night is perfect.

If You’re Sitting Around This Guy, You Might End Up On The Internet. But It’s Pretty Awesome.

There are works of art that exist outside of what hangs on walls inside museums. For example, these simple works of Tokyo-based illustrator Hama-House. When he isn’t working, he likes to create speed sketches of everyday situations… and the resulting drawings are fantastic.

From people talking at a nearby table…

To an exhausted commuter taking a quick nap…

Hama-House is able to create perfect speed doodles of everyday situations.

He makes the mundane look amazing.

Although they are simplistic, it would be so hard for someone else to recreate them.

Somehow, these elaborate sketches make getting coffee or taking a nap on a train seem so much cooler. They are both simple and complicated, and contain so much emotion for something with such normal subjects. To see more of this awesome doodle work, check out his Instagram account. Source: Hama-House These are the kinds of artwork I would love to hang in my own house.
