…It’s Things Thursday: Paper Plane Launcher?

Paper Plane Launcher

Sure, you might not NEED an Electric Paper Plane Launcher, but that doesn’t mean you can’t WANT an Electric Paper Plane Launcher.

The kit, which uses spinning discs to launch your plane at up to 30 mph, takes just one AA battery, and attaches to your desk with suction cups so that you can launch airplanes at cubicles across the room all day without getting even a wee bit tired.

…Gizmodo loves the Lego minifig?

Lego Minifig

The Lego minifig is a cultural icon, having been introduced in 1978, and remaining virtually unchanged for thirty years.

To see the evolution of the iconic figure, Gizmodo painstakingly collected and cataloged almost every minifig ever produced into a photographic timeline, and it’s a great look through the history of the fixed limb figure.

…It’s Things Thursday: Headphonies?

Headphonies

Headphonies are limited edition, designer, vinyl style toys with the functionality of a portable mini speaker built in.

Headphonies Detail

The overall design was created by Eran Weinberg, and various artists will be providing their artwork to the collectible characters, so hurry if you want one, because they’re sure to be snatched up quickly.

Plus, since they’re only making 500 to 1000 of each design, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll ever run into anyone on the street rocking the same Headphonies as you.
