bacon

Bacon is as American as apple pie and smells even better, so creating a t-shirt with bacon and eggs styled as he United States flag is brilliant. Also, by using a special scented ink, the aroma of bacon will waft off of your shirt in a 6″ radius. It lasts for 20 washes and then it’s still a cool bacon shirt, but smells only of shirt.

toast

Here’s a new one. This video game by Bossa Studios has you carefully moving a piece of bread around a room. It’s supposed to be all part of its quest to become toast, and from the trailer it looks rather perilous. It falls into a toilet, wields a giant knife, and goes for a spin on a ceiling fan—all while you control each of its four corners to move it along. Who needs zombie games when you can play as the walking bread?

Check out the gameplay in the video after the break.

Here’s the perfect desktop accessory to keep cold drinks at the ready. We’ve previously featured a mini TARDIS fridge (think the episode “Flatline” only with Dr. Pepper trapped inside), but this one comes complete with a blinking light and enough space to hold 18 canned drinks. It can also be switched over to keep foods warm. This is an officially licensed Doctor Who product with a carrying handle, removable shelf, and little rubber feet. It measures 19″ (21.5″ to top of light) by 10.5 by 11.25″.

dunk

We all learn how to dunk our cookies into a nice, tall glass of milk pretty early in our lives, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Sometimes the cookie slips from your grip. Sometimes you over-dunk and soggy bits go floating off into your milk. The Dunkin’ Buddy makes the whole process easier by magnetically attaching a dunking tray to any glass. It safely holds your cookie and then you can dunk it into the milk without fear of losing it or ending up with a bunch of soggy cookie remains in your glass. It’s not quite ready for sale, but you can keep an eye on their site and be among the first to dunk with ease.

toast

In this gloriously insane video, the guys at Photonicinduction amp up a regular toaster to a level that the fire department would likely not approve. They use huge power supplies to push up the voltage and watts of a poor toaster so that the thing glows like molten lava and cooks/sets fire to bread in just ten seconds.

You don’t always have enough room for everything in your fridge and these nifty magnetic strips could help make everything fit. Brian Conti has created the stick-on strips using neodymium magnets that are even strong enough to hold a big can of tomatoes.

The shambling undead wander about on The Walking Dead like a bunch of drunks, which gave Marca Branca an idea. He replaced the zombies in the opening with footage of actual drunk humans wandering around and it’s a little frightening how well it works. Remember this the next time you’re tempted to have one drink too many.

mug

This 11 ounce mug will hold your favorite beverage and let you know when it’s time to refuel. When it’s full of something warm it reads “Ready Player One Start!” but when it’s cold or empty changes to “Game Over Refill? >Yes No” so you know when it’s time to reach into your pocket for quarters.

In the latest episode of the Reactions series by The American Chemical Society they explain why pizza tastes so darn good. It all comes down to a series of chemical reactions:

Whether it’s a plain cheese, a deep-dish stacked with meats or a thin-crust veggie delight, there’s just something about pizza that makes it delicious. There’s a lot of chemistry that goes into everything from dough to sauce to toppings to, of course, cheese. There’s also a very specific chemical reaction at work on every single slice, no matter what toppings you choose.

It’s called the Maillard Reaction, and it’s what causes the browning of the dough and toppings, as well as the release of some delicious compounds.

And here we thought it was all about high-quality ingredients.
