This Unicorn Diffuser Will Make Your Room Smell Magical

If you're looking to give your home a spa-like feel, look no further than an oil diffuser. The household favorite is believed to offer a whole host of benefits, such as repelling insects, elevating your mood, and generally making you feel more relaxed. Diffusers come in many shapes and sizes, but the best shape is probably this impossibly adorable unicorn from Smoko.

The diffuser, which is named Elodie, is a new product on Kickstarter that has already surpassed its $29,500 goal. The compact device is less than 7 inches tall and emits a fine mist from its horn. It can run six to eight hours or until the water runs out, but it also offers an auto shut-off in 60-, 90-, or 180-minute increments. To change the ambience, cycle between six colors: light blue, dark blue, pink, red, yellow, and green. To get started, simply fill the diffuser with water and a few drops of your preferred essential oil. The magical gadget does the rest of the work and fills your home with a relaxing smell.

You can pre-order one of these little unicorns for $36. Larger donations can also get other unicorn-related goods like a mug, ramen bowl, or mini skateboard.

A New Roller Coaster is Whizzing Through Colorado's Rocky Mountains

There are plenty of ways to explore the majestic Rocky Mountains, but few offer the adrenaline rush of the Rocky Mountain Coaster, a brand-new roller coaster that sends riders soaring along the range’s natural twists and turns.

As Urban Daddy reports, the Rocky Mountain Coaster recently opened at Copper Mountain, a mountain and ski resort that’s located near the tiny town of Frisco, about 75 miles west of Denver. Nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the vacation spot is ideal for hikers, skiers, and mountain bikers. Now, visitors looking to enjoy the surrounding scenery without breaking a sweat can cruise for roughly a mile down to the resort’s high alpine Center Village.

The ride’s raised track “runs along the natural curvature of the mountain, with zigs, zags, dips, and 360-degree turns for guaranteed thrills,” according to a press release. Each personal car is equipped with manual hand brakes to control the ride’s pace, but the coaster does feature a 430-foot drop, so be careful with your phones while Instagramming the view.

The Rocky Mountain Coaster is open-year round, though it will initially mostly only be open on weekends. Solo rides cost $25, and a two-ride pass can be purchased for $35. (Resort guests get an exclusive discount.)

How to Perform the Star Wars Theme—On Calculators

The iconic Star Wars theme has been recreated with glass harps, theremins, and even cat meows. Now, Laughing Squid reports that the team over at YouTube channel It’s a small world have created a version that can be played on calculators.

The channel’s math-related music videos feature covers of popular songs like Luis Fonsi’s "Despacito," Ed Sheeran’s "Shape of You," and the Pirates of the Caribbean theme, all of which are performed on two or more calculators. The Star Wars theme, though, is played across five devices, positioned together into a makeshift keyboard of sorts.

The video begins with a math-musician who transcribes number combinations into notes. Then, they break into an elaborate practice chord sequence on two, and then four, calculators. Once they’re all warmed up, they begin playing the epic opening song we all know and love, which you can hear for yourself in all its electronic glory below.
