This is just the thing to have on hand next time the Doctor wanders into your kitchen looking for something to drink. It looks just like a sonic screwdriver, but pop off the tip and it’s a handy dandy bottle opener. Is there anything the sonic can’t do?
Well…Wood. It doesn’t do wood.
Sometimes I forget that Winnie the Pooh is part of Disney’s pantheon. The character all stuffed with fluff is cute, and these glassware designs by Nendo for Walt Disney Japan emphasizes that. The basic cup and bottle come with different silicone lids that feature Winnie the Pooh sticking his head in a jar of honey and floating away on a balloon. I’d love to buy the entire glassware collection!

Alton Brown is the man when it comes to culinary tricks and tips. Remember his recent instructional video on how to properly slice up a slippery mango without chopping your fingers off? Well, we thought his slicing-and-dicing mango trick was pretty nifty, but it looks like YouTuber Smart Cook came up with a mango hack that’s even more efficient than Alton’s.
Basically, you slice a ripe mango around the pit and press the edge of the slices up against the lip of a very sturdy glass. Voila! The skin comes right off!

Disparity Games has a Kickstarter campaign for a game called a Ninja Pizza Girl. Best title ever? Possibly. It’s fitting, too, since the game is about a 16-year-old girl who delivers pizzas in a dystopian world with a lack of good pizza. It was inspired by the daughter of the developers, who was a kung-fu practicing pizza delivery girl in real life. In the game, she must fight to keep her family’s business intact in the midst of chaos that includes mean teenage girls. The official description reads:
Ninja Pizza Girl is the story of Gemma, a sixteen-year-old girl working as a pizza delivery girl in a cyberpunk dystopia. She lives in a world where slums teeter on top of skyscrapers, where powerful mega-corporations exploit the poor and where quality pizza is hard to come by. Gemma must fight to keep her ideals, her family and their business intact in face of the most merciless enemies known to any teenage girl—other teenagers.
The level-based game has a story that explores “bullying, emotional resilience and the importance of boundaries.” Disparity also touts it as welcoming to people who have never played a platform game (or any game) before. The graphics look lovely, and I hope they get enough funds to move forward with creating the game.
