Moniker Guitars

moniker guitars

It’s not every day a notable new guitar company comes along. Moniker Guitars is based out of Austin Texas and is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help launch their new line of semi-hollow body electric guitars. Currently you can order customized solid body electric guitars on their website as well as custom pickguards for your existing guitar. If you put your girlfriend’s face on the pickguard, she might not be as upset when you use the rent money to buy one of these sweet sounding (and looking) geeetars.

Robot Dragonfly

One of our Twitter followers told us about a very cool project, the Robot Dragonfly. This insect spy drone project has already raised over $1M on indiegogo (similar to Kickstarter) and originally started as a military grant. When outside, the Robot Dragonfly flies like an actual dragonfly while recording video, and is indistinguishable from real insects – making it perfect for bird watchers, home security, spies, nosey neighbors, and Peeping Tom’s. When paired with a smartphone or tablet, the applications/uses for this secret flying camera are incredibly vast.

They’re even building an app that’ll allow you to control your custom robot from your smartphone.

Back to the Future Hoverboard

Before you get ridiculously excited, we’ll start by saying – it doesn’t really work. However, Mattel’s replica Hoverboard is a 1:1 scale recreation of the prop Marty McFly used in Back to the Future II, and makes whooshing sounds as it glides over most surfaces (can’t withstand any weight). Mattel worked with the films’ special effects and prop teams to make it as authentic as possible and the board truly mirrors the one seen in the film. On sale for $130 on MattyCollector.com.


Old Familiar Comb Bottle Opener

We came across another cool Kickstarter project, the Old Familiar Comb Bottle Opener. Pretty simple as invention goes, but it may be the ultimate hipster accessory. Designed by a “beer drinking barber” this stainless steel comb also functions as, you guessed it, a bottle opener. Also check out the JackHawk 9000 Bottle Opening Sunglasses.

Andromeda Tactical Lighting

The guys from Sketchy Design Studio in Los Angeles gave us a tip on their current Kickstarter project, the Andromeda lamp. This military inspired tactical light features a tri-rail system (utilizes the picatinny rail system used for mounting sights and accessories to firearms) and the legs and arms are fully adjustable. The three shades are also fully adjustable, allowing you to change the design of the lamp to your liking. It’s almost as if Martha Stewart and Rambo did arts & crafts together, and this lamp will certainly light up a bachelor pad in a manly fashion.

Bonnie and Clyde’s Pistols

bonnie and clyde firearmsYou can now own a piece of criminal history, with the pistols found on infamous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde when they were ambushed and killed by law enforcement in 1934. Authorities found the Colt snub nosed .38 revolver on Bonnie Parker taped to her thigh with medical tape, and Clyde Barrow’s Colt .45 was removed from his waistband postmortem. Both weapons from the are being auctioned by RR Auction in New Hampshire on Sept. 30, and it’s expected that each can go for $100-$200k.
