Google unveiled its Project Glass heads-up display glasses earlier today. Still in the concept phase, Project Glass would essentially take your smartphone out of your hands and onto your face with the ability to check the weather, get directions, send texts, make calls, and more, thanks to augmented reality. If nothing else, it will definitely bring more hands-free, sci-fi infused interactivity into your life. Get a look at what the glasses can do in the demo video after the break.
In what is clearly a spoof of the Apple iLife, the iHam 5Js promises to revolutionize the world of design and entertainment. Not to mention diet and happiness. And if ham is not your thing, don't worry there's iLoin — now with a sleeker 23-inch design — and the iHam Nano (presliced pieces of ham, for those who cannot handle the whole leg). Also, if you're wondering what to do with your iHam, don't fret, there are many peripherals — iBread, iCocktail Stick, and iKnife to name a few — that will help you further enjoy your iHam.

This morning, a friend of mine sent me the link to this Messy tablecloth by Polish group AZE design. The plain white tablecloth is embroidered with outlines of plates, cutlery, a cheese board, serving spoons, and more. I think it would be fun to try and put dishes in the right place — except for maybe that spilled wine glass — but I don't know if I'd actually use it as my main tablecloth. What do you think? Would you use it?
Would you like a nice charbroiled burger? Oh wait, did I say charbroiled, I meant Car-broiled. That's right, I said car.
A group of inventors have created the Exhaust Burger that allows you to drive and cook burgers at the same time. The exhaust goes through the top of the contraption — don't worry, the exhaust doesn't actually touch the burger — and heats the metal. The metal then cooks the burger, sort of like a George Foreman grill, only there's nowhere for the grease to go. The product is still in the concept phase, but I can see where it could be helpful — no extra fuel or energy needed — however, there's something about it that just seems wrong. Wouldn't it just be a greasy mess? Yet, having said that, you all know I'd be the first in line to see what it tastes like!
Oh and does this remind anyone else of Alton Brown's Feasting on Asphalt contraption that allows him to cook stew while riding his motorcycle?
Conceptual designer Adrian Rovero has come up with a new line of pasta called Sedie. At first glance you're reminded of old-school Campbell's alphabet soup, or maybe even slightly more grown-up, wagon wheels. However, upon closer inspection you'll see that they're actually little chairs! The pasta is extruded from the machine and are formed into little chairs. Just don't sit on them, okay? Something tells me they're not quite sturdy enough.
