Perfect for those of us lacking the confidence to write in pen for the first time, this pencil features a miniature broom head eraser on the end so you can just sweep away incorrect crossword puzzle answers and poorly solved Sudoku puzzles. At almost $9 for a single pencil you’re going to only want to sharpen this thing when it’s absolutely worn down to a nub.
If you’re into unusual accent lighting, you’re not going to find anything more unique than Pēteris Zilbers and Mārtiņš Straupe’s Mood Broom, which illuminates a room with a strip of colour-changing LEDs running down the handle.
Street sweepers in the US are big, hulking, monolithic machines that are terribly noisy, slow and occasionally effective. Street sweepers in China? Nothing more than a windmill of brooms tied to a beat up truck. And I’m not sure if it really does anything.
A black bike with a broomstick mechanism designed to steer it? It must belong to… a witch! A witch! A witch! A witch! We’ve found a witch! A witch! A witch! A witch! A witch! We’ve got a witch! A witch! A witch! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! We’ve found a witch! We’ve found a witch! A witch! A witch! A witch! We have found a witch. May we burn her? Anyone has a duck?
We couldn’t find any clue what the hell this kid is doing, so come up with your own conclusions (and caption). Looks like his dad rigged up a weed whacker to some sort of…something, and he’s going tearing down the streets of London living out his wildest Harry Potter adventures. The one without Hermione, that is. [One Man's Blog - Thanks Roger!]
I’ve got two words for you: vacuum broom. It’s a simple idea, but one that makes a lot of sense. Well, a lot of sense until you wonder if all the bulk in a vacuum cleaner is necessary to, you know, run the vacuum. And that there’s no room for a bag in a broomstick. But hey, it’s a slick design, right? What with each of the “bristles” actually acting as a mini vacuum, sucking up dust while you sweep bigger stuff into the dustpan. If it weren’t for stupid logic this thing would be heading for store shelves post haste, I’m sure. [Yanko Design]
newVideoPlayer("broomstick_gawker.flv", 475, 376);Here’s the broomstick arcade machine again, now in some spellbinding hot witch video action. Although the pottertastic nature of the game is too niche, the controls look even better live: watch as she throws spells drawing signs in the game touch-sensitive screen while riding the broomstick. Maybe it’s just me, but I find the combination quite cool and, somehow, disturbingly arousing. [Gizmodo Japan]
