Hazel Chua Website

Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night.

Autobots, Unite: Transformers 3D Wall Night Light

Make sure that your knee isn’t what’s going bump in the night anymore by getting yourself a night light. It doesn’t make sense to turn on all the lights when you’re headed to the bathroom to take a leak, because, you know, you’ll probably stumble on your way to find the switches. The practical alternative is to get a night light so you can make your way to the bathroom, kitchen, stairs, wherever.

The awesomer option is to go for this Transformers-inspired night light. An auto-bot crashing through your wall? Yes, please!

You Are What You Drink: Playstation Controller Coffee Mug

So you broke your coffee mug last week. No big deal! In fact, it’s about time you broke it, because you can replace it with an awesome mug that showcases your one true love (or, okay, one of your true loves, that is): the Game Over mug! It comes with not one, but two handles shaped like a Playstation controller.

A surprise awaits you at the bottom of the mug, albeit a not-so-pleasant one, signaling the end of your coffee break and letting you know that it’s time to go back to the daily grind.

Aaron Paul’s ‘Yo’ App Lets You Greet Friends Breaking Bad-Style With a Tap

Yo, b’tch! Wazzup? Now you can greet friends, family, loved ones, frenemies, FWBs, and everyone in between Jesse Pinkman-style with the YB app. That’s short for ‘Yo b’tch!’, as you’ve probably already guessed. It was cooked up by none other than Aaron Paul, who plays Pinkman in the awesomest TV show ever, Breaking Bad.

Your grandma might not take too kindly if you hit her up with this app, but chances are she’ll get the reference if she’s hip and if she watched BB when it was on air, that is.

As Real As It Gets: Fantasy Football Championship Belt

Who said you had to play sports to get an award? You can still get one, although not the regular kind and definitely not a trophy for being the MVP, if you’ve got some cash to spare (or if you’ve got a thoughtful girlfriend who has cash to spare.) There’s this belt you can get that looks like the ones top boxers wear when they win their division. It’s the Fantasy Football championship belt that belongs around your waist, specially after how you led your team to victory this year…

  • Belt measures 53″ long and is constructed of a quality, PU leather material
  • Front Plate is a massive 9.5″ x 12″ embossed metal with enamel paint
  • 4″ Metal Side Plates 
  • 3.5″ Metal End Plates 

The left end plate is blank, so you can customize the belt with the team that you’re currently rooting for, er, managing.

Smell Like You’re Drunk: Whiskey-Infused Tweed

Had too much to drink? Chances are, you smell like it, too. Now try to remember that smell–and imagine wearing clothes that have that signature stink, er, scent all over it 24/7. This is exactly what some folks from the Heriot Watt University’s School of Textiles and Design want to recreate: fabric that smells like booze.

The tweed carries aromas of “rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones” and has been designed to reflect the colors of the whisky ingredients. The scent is layered into the fabric throughout the finishing process and is permanently imbued in the tweed that will not go off even after dry cleaning

‘But officer, this is what my shirt smells like, fresh from the wash!’
Yeah right. Like anyone will believe you.

How to Remove Your ‘Stache In the Most Painful Ways Possible (VIDEO)

How do you remove your ‘stache? Let me count the ways. Most dudes choose to shave the whole damn thing off if they can’t be bothered with shaping and trimming it regularly. However, engineering tech nerd Mehdi Sadaghdar decided that his ‘stache was too good for mere scissors and razors.

So he embarked on a journey to remove his ‘stache in the most painful ways possible. And even though I don’t have a ‘stache myself, this video is both painful and hilarious to watch. Check it out!
