Skateboard iPhone Case is Impractical, Cool

Sure the Candies Skateboard iPhone Case looks really cool- like you shredded a skate deck in half and stuck your iPhone in it. But there’s a slightly impractical problem with this case- the back of it. It has actual wheels sticking out of the back side! Wheels are fine if you’re putting …

The Motorized Monocycle from Hammacher Schlemmer just looks plain dangerous.
