Your Favorite Countries, Now in Plate Form https://sofreakingcool.com/24775/your-favorite-countries-now-in-plate-form/ https://sofreakingcool.com/24775/your-favorite-countries-now-in-plate-form/#respond Tue, 02 Jun 2015 08:17:56 +0000 http://sofreakingcool.com/?p=24775

Did you think only ruin porn came out of Detroit? Think again, son, Detroit actually produces quality products now. The Mavs still hang around in the upper echelon of the Western Conference and the Tigers haven't been that bad these past few years. And, hey, if you love ceramics, and plates, and decorating your house, check out Corbe's newest line of dinnerware.

Not just any plates though. These come in the shape of your favorite country. Australia, United States, Canada, Ireland, just to name a few. Recreate the march of the pioneers from the East Coast to the West Coast, only this time, with peas.

Corbe handmakes the plates, or 'handufactures', them. The U.S. measures about a foot across, but no idea on the weight. Are these foot-breaking heavy or easy to throw at your dinner guests heavy? Order one ($90-120) and find out for yourself.

Duct tape comes in bland, boring gray and smells like adhesive. That's...booooring. Buy scented duct tape instead. Amazing smells like cupcake, grape, bubble gum, lemon and orange cream await you with these scented duck tapes by Duck Brand ($4). Each smell coincides with a similar color. If you're gonna use duct tape, you might as well have fun with it.

Moto X Where ‘X’ Stands for Excellent and Exemplary https://sofreakingcool.com/24752/moto-x-x-stands-excellent-exemplary/ https://sofreakingcool.com/24752/moto-x-x-stands-excellent-exemplary/#respond Fri, 05 Sep 2014 15:00:42 +0000 http://sofreakingcool.com/?p=24752

One of the best phones of last year keeps improving with its latest release. The new Moto X hits stores later this month with plenty of cool features. On the outside the Moto X shows off a sleek metal frame and a large 5.2-inch display with HD resolution. For video and photography lovers, it has a 13 megapixel rear camera and 4K video capture(!). The phone also includes four mics for improved sound capture. If you have 15 minutes to spare, you can use the turbo charging featuring to lock in a full 8 hour charge. Ah-maz-ing!

Of course, the Moto Maker customization continues with the old standard and wood backs, and now includes a premium leather back. Onboard Moto Voice lets you voice operate even more operation such as Facebook and YouTube apps. An unlocked phone sells for $499.99 at Motorola.com, while a contract phone retails for $99.99. You can also pair this with the just-release Moto Hint to take yourself further into the future.

For some reason, most smartwatch makers haven't realized yet people won't buy into wearable technology unless it looks good. No one wants to strap clunky nerdlinger watches to their wrists. Motorola gets it thought. They've finally released the Moto 360, a round-faced smartwatch that people won't mind wearing.

The smartwatch will come in black and gray in the beginning for $249. Later this year, Motorola will add two metal band options, each at $299. The stainless steel watch weighs only 1.72 ounces and features wireless charging. A Gorilla Glass screen protects you from random scratches. Other cool features include a simple flick to wake design and activity tracking through Motorola Connect.

Get one at Motorola.com, Best Buy and Google Play.

You know what sucks? Trying to spread cold butter on bread. Usually you end up with clumps of butter randomly spread out over the bread. No bueno. The ButterUp Knife by DM Initiative wants to save you from eating butter clumps. The Australian-based designers discovered having a grater spreads cold butter much better. So, they went ahead and added a serrated edge to the ButterUp Knife. The edge aerates the butter making it easier to spread. Check out their Kickstarter and order one now.

Hopefully, you aren't pouring wine into one of your 32-ounce AM/PM plastic cups. That's turrrrible.
