This Rubik's Cube Fridge Will Forever Be Unsolved

If ThinkGeek’s Star Trek Borg Cube mini-fridge didn’t do it for you, maybe its follow-up effort will get your geeky juices flowing. Drawing inspiration from another cubic pop culture icon, this Rubik’s Cube fridge doesn’t spin so it can never, ever be solved.

These Scarves Are Printed With The Outlines Of Cities Aglow At Night

We’ve all seen the glowing fingerprints of cities after dark: Manhattan as an orderly grid, London a sprawling mess bisected by the winding Thames, the ring of Paris’s arrondissements. The patterns are recognisable but abstract, just right on a silk scarf that lets you subtly broadcast your city allegiances.


Skip The Gnome And Put A Fallen AT-AT On Your Lawn

The exact reason why people feel the need to adorn their lawns and gardens with ceramic gnomes may never be known, but maybe it’s a not-so-secret way to show their allegiance towards a race of tiny human-like fantasy creatures?

This Classic 1970s Speaker Just Got Revamped With Today's Tech

If you were alive in the 1970s, there’s a good chance you listened to Stig Carlsson’s delightfully streamlined OD-11 speakers at some point.

An Under-Desk Hammock For Your Feet Is The Best Office Upgrade

Laying in a hammock while wrangling a simple book is often a challenge, which explains why hammocks replacing desks in offices never caught on.
