This week we have themes, *excites*: new ways to find lurve, items you can wear to protect your brain, unique spins on Pinterest-ing and some travel goodness.
Items You Can Wear To Protect Your Brain
1. Shopping Bag Earthquake Helmet: It’s a reusable mesh shopping bag with a hard plastic bottom that could save your life in the event of an earthquake. The only draw back: you’ll have to get used to people telling you that you’re better off with a bag over your face.
2. Invisible Bike Helmet: This fabric collar with built-in airbag is a helmet designed to inflate around a cyclist’s head on impact. Hoorays all around for avoiding a cracked skull and for putting an end to helmet hair.
3. Passwords of the Future: Skip the passwords. In the future, all you’ll need is a totes awesome brain cap to access your brainwaves and all of your secure information. Doesn’t sound awesome to you? Maybe you don’t look good in hats.
New Ways To Find Lurve
4. Dating Site for Lazy Guys: This site does all of the heavy lifting of matching, messaging and arranging an actual date for a guy. The only thing he has to do is sign-up, sign-in and a take a short quiz. Yay for the fellas, sad for the ladies.
5. Klout Matchmaking: Tawkify, also a dating site, pairs you with people who have similar Klout scores to you. Their theory is that a higher score means you are more likely to be social, influential, smart and connected. What if you have a low Klout score? You’re lucky enough to weed out the pretentious jerks who worry about how high their Klout is.
6. Oscar De La Renta ‘Live-Pinning’: While admitting it to being a last-second idea, ODLR had his latest bridal show ‘live-pinned’ to Pinterest. Although nothing seems more obvious than bridal inspiration on Pinterest, it was well done and we’re sups jells of the last second stroke of brilliance.
7. Pin Puzzle: It’s a mobile game that turns your Pinterest board into a sliding puzzle. While the UI could use some love, it’s not enough to deter us from wasting a lot of time here.
8. Bottled City Smells: These fragrances are intended to convey the distinct smells of major cities around the world. For instance, Paris should smell like roses and lemons, and Tokyo like lotus, freesias and peonies. As long as they truly do smell like the rainbows and unicorn versions of a city versus the more realistic scent of excrement, we might consider spritzing ourselves with these.
9. City Sounds Alarm Clock Game: It’s an alarm clock app/contest, called Anywake, that wakes you to the sounds of a random city. If you can guess which city wakes you correctly, you’re rewarded with discounted airfare to that destination. A promotion paired with a utility app is nothing short of genius (jealous again).
