It's that time of the week, boys!
Once again, we're going to mouth off and name more things that made us yearn for more money, as well as the time to spend with them. Because adulting is, like, so hard, you know.
A load of cool stuff, up ahead!
THIS ADVENTURE TIME-THEMED CONSOLE

We super approve! Too bad this one-of-a-kind SNES emulator is not for sale. But hey, if Mr. Barretta, the cool dude who created this masterpiece, can do it, we can create one, too! All we need is our imagination...and a 3D printer.
THIS FAP-FRIENDLY WRISTBAND
You read that right. Put on the Pornhub Wankband, play with your junior, and create enough power to charge your other gadgets.

Well, of course we've already written a piece about it so click here to know more about this boner-approved device! Also: PornHub is looking for beta testers. Sign up, wankers!
THIS COOL PRESENTATION AND DOCUMENTATION TOOL
Here's an easy way to digitize everything you wrote on the office white board: get the Equil Smartmarker. No more taking lousy photos of that board post-meeting! Just put the sensor on your board, start writing with the included marker, and access those white-board notes on your iOS/Android device or desktop. You can stream and share those notes, too!

The Equil Smartmarker will launch within the year, and according to this report, it'll be priced at $700 (P31,000). Our next steps: get it, and find someone with amazing handwriting. We don't want to force our officemates to read our chicken scrawl, you know.
THIS LIGHTING SYSTEM

So you want to tinker with your lighting system, but don't know jack about wiring and sockets? Here's a great find that will save your day: BIT Lights. Made by Choi+Shine Architects LLC, this system allows you to connect multiple BIT modules (one BIT module = 460 lumens) of different materials, shapes and sizes easily via magnets; and form as many lighting variations as you want. The part we love the most? On the official product website: “The low power LED is safe and cool to touch, while the polycarbonate shell is impact resistant, and recyclable.” Noice!
No word yet on official pricing and availability. We're willing to wait, though!
THIS GEEKY CLIP

Let's continue our online window-shopping over at Etsy, where we spied the steampunk Robot Tie Clip by Las Vegas-based seller CosmicFirefly. It's ultra-geeky and takes away some of the seriousness of donning a tie for whatever reason. It's also added motivation to go formal more often, which we bet your girl or wife will approve of. That's enough for us, really.
Good news, robot fans! This tie clip's now available at Etsy for P1,139!
THESE DRINKAGE-PERFECT TEES

Some facts for all ye lovers of great beer, apparel and design:
- The San Miguel Pale Pilsen brand/product is now 125 years old!
- Team Manila and San Miguel collaborated and produced the Team Manila x San Miguel T-shirt collection and merch.
We particularly dig this white Beer Stories shirt. Perfect for a night at a no-frills bar, and makes ordering easy. Whistle, point to the shirt, and drink!
THESE SUPERHERO TOYS

These awesome action figures will be available later this year while official SRPs are still TBA as of the moment. Fingers crossed they won't cost an arm and a leg.
THIS PHOTO NOTEBOOK

True Story Time: We once met a dude who made photo albums of him with his girlfriend (now his wife) through their relationship's different stages. A few curious questions later, he started flipping through those albums—in the middle of a jampacked bar on a Saturday night—and explaining where they were taken. The ladies in our table and in the next ones started having that "OMG, he's such a sweet boyfriend" look on their faces.
Lesson: Get into photo album-making and scrapbooking. However, if your DIY skills don't cover arts and crafts, the Moleskine Photo Notebook (available for $50 or around P2,200 w/o shipping) is your best option. It's small enough to bring around anywhere or store in smaller shelves; and if you add blank pages, your S.O. can add her own notes on your couples' photos and memorabilia. We guess this year's birthday or anniversary gift is covered.
THIS HANDY TOOL

We like tools. Especially those that have every implement we can think of. Like the Victorinox Swiss Tool Spirit X: this little wonder carries essentials like a screwdriver, scissors, wire cutter/bender/scraper, can opener, and metal saw. Handy.
This super useful tool is now available via Victorinox's online hub for $122 (around P5,400).
THIS LAST-OF-ITS-KIND SUPERCAR

Bugatti outed the final Veyron supercar, aptly named La Finale at the on-going 2015 Geneva Motor Show. And what a way to go for the Veyron product line: The La Finale's been bestowed with a super-sleek design, lots of callbacks to Bugatti's history, and an 8-liter W16 engine that helps get the ride to a top speed of 267.8Mph.
Bugatti hasn't disclosed the La Finale's asking price yet, although common sense dictates that it's not for the 99-percent.
THIS LINUX-POWERED SMARTPHONE
We've waited a long time for this smartphone, and we're glad it finally happened. The Ubuntu Phone is now out in the wild, wild world of tech, after several setbacks that include a flopped crowdfunding campaign.

The little bugger is powered by Ubuntu, which normally runs things for desktops, which means this phone is truly unique. There are two models available: the so-called BQ version is up for sale in Europe for 169.90 euros (around P8,300), while the Meizu model sells for $450 (around P19,900). No word yet if it'll be available here, although we really hope that happens. We're itching to use something not powered by the "usuals" (read: iOS, Android, Windows, or BlackBerry).
THIS BOARD GAME

Since we're big fans of Fight Club (book and movie), we're really hoping that this board game will be an actual thing instead of just staying as mere marketing collateral for the upcoming Fight Club 2 comic. It's about Tyler Durden and co. so it must be awesome, even if we don't know an effin' thing about how to play it.
We're so stoked
