…It’s TGI Friday: Use Boxmen?

Use Boxmen

Deceptively simple games are usually the most fun, and Use Boxmen definitely falls into that category.

In the game, you are put in charge of a boxman who can generate other boxmen that will copy what he does. The goal is to save the box in each level, but as this is a puzzle game, even simple tasks are often much harder than they first appear.

Give it a shot and see how you do, but if you get stuck, there’s always the cheater’s way out of using a walkthrough:

…Folding paper can be fun?

Here’s a few projects for you paper folders:

Paper Train Whistle

The first is a working train whistle made entirely out of household materials (printer, paper, thicker paper, white glue, scissors, and a razor edge).

To make the whistle, just print the paper parts, fold, cut, glue, and after 3 hours (drying time) you’ll have your very own playable paper train whistle.

NetFlix Origami

The second is an entire site dedicated to origami that you can make from the tear-off flaps that come on NetFlix wrappers.

Though traditional origami usually requires squares of paper, each of these designs has been adapted so that you can use the rectangular NetFlix flap without alteration.

Using the sturdy and colorful flaps, you can make your very own swan, frog, box, shirt, heart, tray, crab, sack, cube, envelope, bullet plane, glider, and dive-bomber.

Just watch out for the paper cuts.

…The Casulo makes moving easy?

Casulo

Believe it or not, this little box, called the Casulo, holds a complete set of room furniture that can be set up in less than ten minutes, and requires no tools.

CasuloAnimationWhat exactly constitutes a complete set of room furniture?

How about a “wardrobe, large desk/table with a separate desk cabinet with locking drawers, a revolving, height-adjustable desk chair, two stools, a single bed and mattress, and a tall set of shelves.”

Who said moving had to be hard?

…The VanityRing will show off your stats?

VanityRing

If you consider yourself to be an Internet celebrity, then show the world your status with the VanityRing.

By plugging the VanityRing into the custom docking box and then typing your name into the included software, the VanityRing searches Google, and updates your ring’s screen with the number of hits your name pulls up.

    “The VanityRing doesn’t have a jewel, instead it shows the number of hits one gets, when he searches Google for the name of the person who wears it, a more adequate value in our time.”

How valuable are you?
