As we all know, “mostly dead” also means “slightly alive”. For those situations, you’ll need some coffee and this Princess Bride mug to help you recover.

Hey, if you find a better Princess Bride mug with Westley with Buttercup on one side and Buttercup with the Dread Pirate Roberts on the other—you buy it.

Nike is following up its recent Chicken and Waffles sneaker with an SB Janoski “Pepperoni Pizza” shoe.

The weirdness was created along with Skate Mental and consists of a canvas material emblazoned with a hyper-realistic pizza print and red piping accents. The result is footwear that will be perfect for any guy that’s named Daniel and works at Dominos.

A release date has not yet been announced.

Ad agency BBDO Bangkok and the Thai government health board have created the “AbsorbPlate” and claim that it will soak up an average of about 7ml of oil (or 30 calories on average) from meals that are placed on it.

The plate is based on a sponge and employs 500 perforated holes to draw away the calories. It is hoped that it will help combat the country’s obesity problem by reducing the calories in Thai cuisine, which is notoriously oily.

At the moment, the plates are still in the development stage and no release date has been set. However, we would guess that when the time comes, they’ll be absorbing a lot of money as well. Check out the video below…

The best part of waking up is assimilation in your cup.

Unfortunately, since you are separated from the Collective and your human physiology is asserting itself, you may be required to take in nutrients if you do not have ready access to an alcove. That is why we have provided you with a Star Trek Borg Cube Mug during your time away. It will remind you of “home” during your time with Species 5618, as well as provide you with any energy your human physiology may demand for its biological functions. We recommend you partake of caffeine, a molecule which synthesizes in a particularly effective way with humans’ cellular chemistry.

Resistance against the caffeine is futile.

Technically, this Harry Potter Marauder’s Map Mug is for soup, but we say fill it with coffee to fuel your adventures.

Though, you’ll probably need to whip up a potion to alleviate the caffeine shakes, so I hope you paid attention in class.

If you suffer from a gluten allergy, San Francisco-based startup 6SensorLabs may be able to help make your life easier with a new device called “Nima”.

Nima is touted as a discreet, portable testing device that can determine the gluten content of food simply by placing a tiny piece inside a disposable capsule and inserting it into Nima’s main sensor unit. Within a few minutes, the device will display either a smiley face, indicating gluten-free food, or a frowny face, signaling the presence of the protein.

Here’s one for my wine loving geeks (and I know you’re out there!). Check out this Harley Quinn Mallet Corkscrew And Wine Charm Set.

I mean, think about it, Harley would probably be down with using her mallet to open a bottle of wine. Plus, a wine charm makes sure you know which glass is yours—just in case you want to, I dunno, poison someone? Not really, but you know what I mean.
