Harness the power of the '90s with two external batteries modeled after a Tamagotchi and an old brick cell phone. Created by Wattzup and sold on Firebox, both 2600 mAh batteries can charge your phone up to one and a half times its normal capacity. The batteries work with most phones and include a micro-USB port.
The brick phone comes in pink and gray, while the Tamagotchi comes in pink with a static, smiling digital pet on the screen. While you can't make calls or feed pets using these external batteries, you can at least charge your phone in style. Get the phone or Tamagotchi on Firebox.
Historians still don’t know how Vincent van Gogh lost his left ear, or for that matter, how much of it was actually lopped off. However, as Bored Panda reports, Today Is Art Day decided to take historic liberties in the name of nerdy fun and created a mini van Gogh action figure, complete with two completely detachable ears.
Today Is Art Day developed a prototype of the 5-inch PVC figurine back in 2017, and to bring it to the art-loving masses, they launched a Kickstarter campaign. Backers who contributed $28 Canadian dollars (around $21 USD) scored their own van Gogh action figure.
Fans who missed out on the Kickstarter the first time around can buy one on Amazon now for $24. He even comes in a box decorated with miniature, cut-out replicas of hisSunflowers (1888) and The Starry Night(1889).
