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.

‘Refuel’ App Makes Sure You’ve Got a Full Tank

Nothing sucks more than realizing the tank's empty on the eve of a barbecue. Unfortunately, determining the level of propane inside the tank is hit-or-miss, unless you've got Refuel. It's a smart tank gauge that hooks up with an app on your smartphone so you'll know when it's time to get a new tank before it's too late.

If you don't have your phone with you, simply tap the gauge and it'll give you an LED reading of the propane level in the tank. Pretty sweet, don't you think?

So You’ll Never Forget: Sticky Notes Door Hangers

If you forget to do things or bring stuff like there's no tomorrow, then you might need to start putting these Sticky Notes on your doors. Putting reminders on something that you'd most likely see before you leave the room makes perfect sense. That way, you can head back and do or bring whatever it is you're supposed to before you leave the flat.

You can also use these to hang a 'Do Not Distrub' sign outside your room when it's smexy time.

Revolver Gun Knife: No Bullets, All Blade

So here's a gun that isn't exactly a gun. You won't be able to fire any rounds from it, because it's actually a knife. Yes, a knife. Pulling the trigger won't do anything, but flip it over and flip that blade out and you've got yourself a weapon for self-defense.

It's not the perfect weapon by any means because the handle isn't exactly ergonomic and you'd obviously have to be in close range with your assailant. However, that takes nothing from the fact that it's essentially a gun disguised as a gun. Even if it isn't as easy to use as a regular old knife, the appeal is hard to ignore.

Everyday Football Fouls: Real-Life Flopping (VIDEO)

Watch Video

Athletes flop in games all the time, especially if it means getting one for the team. Basketball is where a lot of it happens, but as we've all seen at the recently-concluded FIFA World Cup, it happens a lot in football (or soccer, if you're from a place where it's called that) as well. Good floppers usually get the call to go their way, scoring a few extra points or getting some other advantage that might help their team take the game.

But what happens when people start to flop outside of sports? In real life, when you're at the office or coffee shop and someone just starts flopping all over the place? No clue about whatever advantages, but Fourgrounds Film imagines what we can all expect if that happens, and it's just hilarious. Check it out!

Strip Club Cash Cannon: Shoot It Up With Cash

Perfect for them strip clubs, don't you think?

Go on--make it rain! Just make sure you don't lose your life's savings in the process.

LOLWHUT: Parking Armor is a Bumper for Your Bumper

So the Parking Armor is a ridiculous concept, although you might actually need one if you suck at parking. It's basically a bumper for your bumper, so you don't mess your actual bumper up in the event that you accidentally (or accidentally-on-purpose) bump into something while you're backing  into a parking spot or your garage or something.

The Parking Armor is made from water-resistant rubber with steel-enforced straps to hold them in place securely. It also has foam pads on the back side so the entire thing doesn't slide during impact. It'll keep your bumper unscratched and unscathed through nasty bumps, but it probably won't do anything for your game.

Now That’s a Barcebue: Social Grill Lets Every In On the Action

Burgers, hot dogs, and steaks are all so much better if you grilled 'em yourself. Or at least, had a hand in getting them to the grill, even if it was just turning it over a few times after it was prepped and seasoned and all by the master griller. Unfortunately, eight people crowding around a single grill ain't exactly going to be a fun time for anyone in the group. Eight people around the social grill though--that's something else.

The Social Grill is a longer-than-usual grill that you can set at the table, so everyone can grill and flip their own burgers and steaks while they're chowing down. No need to pretend that you like your meat well-done because you can grill it to perfection yourself, just how you like it.
