Microwave Soap Grenade!

I was suddenly reminded of my failed Microwave Soap Grenade invention when I came across this great little invention called The Nana Saver!

It’s for people who are too small to eat a full banana and don’t want the leftover piece to turn brown. I myself am a small person (but not so small that I can’t finish a banana you a-holes!) and I often cut half a banana over my Vector cereal! This little invention would be kinda worth having, although I guess I could just be a man and… no not deal with the piece turning brown, I was going to say be a man and throw the other half in the garbage! Just joking Mother Earth!

Ok anyways, about my Microwave Soap Grenade! Check this out…

I was cleaning my microwave a while ago, and I was having a hard time getting all these bits of lasagna off the walls. I thought about how much of a sucker I was for having to scrub this hard. Then it hit me, I could just invent a microwave popcorn bag full of soap that you intentionally let explode in your microwave! I could kick back in my lazy boy and watch as science cleaned my microwave for me!

The first person I shared my idea with laughed and said “too bad it’s already been done you idiot!” Apparently some other lazy jackass already had the same idea and actually made a product out of it.

Well guess what you jackass, I’m going to have the last laugh! I am going to ruin your business by presenting the cheaper (albeit less cool – since my soap bomb would have come packaged like a grenade with a removable pin) solution.

How to clean your microwave with a lemon!

Yes, I am that petty.

PS – I came across the Nana Saver on The Presurfer.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
