It’s money laundering of the best sort. These pleasantly scented soap bars reward clean hands big and small with a surprise inside. You’ll find cash money: either a $1, $5, $10, $20 or even a $50. $13
This is just a guess… but chances are, you are probably going to get a $1 bill. Lol.

Golf carts are cool. Hovercrafts are cooler… Golfer Bubba Watson recently partnered with Oakley to make this hovercraft with the look and feel of a golf cart. It can cross sand traps and water hazards with ease… and it doesn’t tear up grass! Check some video below.
Analog synthesizer innovators, Moog, are unveiling a new handcrafted synthesizer today, the Sub Phatty – which “grinds and screams with a uniquely aggressive voice.” A few months ago, producer Flying Lotus received a prototype Sub Phatty, which he used as the primary instrument on “Such A Square”, an original composition for a new animated short/promotional video by Adult Swim animator Adam “lilfuchs” Fuchs entitled Moog Sub Phatty: New Machine For Living. Check it out below.
Forget the iPhone taser application… here’s the real thing! Seth Froom came up with the idea for the “Yellow Jacket iPhone” case after an armed robber broke into his house and stole cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices. He wondered how the situation could’ve played out differently if he had some form of protection. Froom and co-founder Sean Simone are currently fundraising on Indiegogo to make Yellow Jacket a reality. What happens when you try to put the thing next to your face? Are we going to have people inadvertently stunning themselves? Apparently the Yellow Jacket “features a safety switch and a rotating electrode cap, both intended to prevent accidental discharge”. Haha. We’ll see. They are currently at $31,794, and have 12 days left to reach their goal of $100,000.
Solebox, a Berlin based sneaker and lifestyle boutique, commemorates their 10th anniversary by releasing the limited edition Solebox Omni Zone Pump. In collaboration with Reebok, each pair is black, grey, and white, and accentuated by the soft tint of green LEDs. Unfortunately, it was only released in stores abroad. None in the USA. More photos and promo video after the break.

The People’s Car Project is an initiative launched by VW in China to design the new people’s car, an open-source project where citizens can submit ideas to VW’s R&D in China.This is the case of Jia Wang who thought of a solution for traffic congestion in the city of Chengdu with a small urban vehicle, spherical, connected that can be parked everywhere (even in the air!) with a simplified operation allowing everyone to take the wheel.Starting from these basic concepts, VW’s engineers made this idea become true with an original vehicle using electromagnetic levitation -to provide freedom and comfort- but also safety oriented with distance sensors to avoid crashes.
