Do you know how to spell out “coffee” in binary code? I don’t. But I do know how to write the word “hot” in binary thanks to this awesome Hot Binary Heat Change Mug. When you heat up the mug, the binary for “hot” appears on the side. So, when the machines inevitably take over, you know how to say at least one thing to them. Good luck with that.

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.

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.

sbucks cup 1

Artist Soo Min Kim uses his artistic skills to transform the iconic Starbucks siren into all kinds of different characters. He starts with an existing cup, covers up everything but the siren’s face and uses a marker to transform the cup into a piece of art. He’s turned the siren into Darth Vader, various members of the Avengers, and Psy among others. His work definitely makes me look at Starbucks cups differently.

nuka-cola bottles 1

If you’ve played any of the Fallout games, then you’re familiar with the Nuka-Cola brand. It’s a popular soft drink with fruity flavors and health benefits, and the Quantum line of Nuka-Cola had a mild radioactive isotope that made it glow. With that in mind, Etsy seller MEM props put together a set of four glow in the dark varieties of Nuka-Cola: Quantum, Victory, Fusion, and Quartz.

The bottles are only props (not for drinking), and once you charge them up with light, they’ll glow for 20-30 minutes.

More photos of the cool props after the break.

john oliver pumpkin spice

We all love John Oliver. I mean, the guy’s hilarious and his new show Last Week With John Oliver has been a hit for HBO. There’s no denying he’s brilliant.

But John may have just pushed it a bit too far. He’s going after America’s love for pumpkin spice and he’s not pulling any punches.

That said, he does make some valid points. I mean, pumpkin spice lattes do taste a bit candle-y.

Starburst Freeze

Taco Bell has the best beverages and treats. They already have the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze, but now they’re getting even cooler with a Starburst Freeze. The brand new menu item was made available starting yesterday, and it looks pink, sugary, and refreshing. I can’t wait to try it. I wonder if it will go with a Doritos taco?

My mood for the day can have an influence on which coffee mug I choose, and if I pulled this Cthulhu one out of the cupboard… well, so help anyone I encounter. ThinkGeek just released this sculpted ceramic mug that features Cthulhu awakening, and they’ve also got a couple other new styles if the monster from the deep isn’t your thing.

If you simply need an energy boost then a power-up question mark block mug might be for you. If you’re feeling chill on the weekends, relax and drink with an enchanting fairy mug.
