Who can possibly be contented with their hamsters merely powering their lights? We want it all. We want hamsters powering our kitchen appliances, we want them powering our video game consoles, we want them charging our phones. Yeah, you heard us. Of course, exactly what happens when your poor little organic electricity production unit runs out of steam is entirely up to you, but we might recommend buying an itsy bitsy whip and an itsy bitsy circus ringleader costume for your hand to keep the ball rolling. Gotta make ‘dem calls!

No, not that kind of star. Star as in, look up! And with Bigha’s StarSeeker chair, you won’t sustain neck damage in doing so. The thing’s got an aluminum base, collapsible lounge chair, adjustable binocular mount and battery-powered motor — used for rotating the chair as controlled by a small joystick. The binocular bar is counterweighted to allow a range of verticular motion for zeroing in on that hot, um, celestial body. Of course, comfort don’t come cheap, and you’ll have to fork over $1,950 for this, which doesn’t even include the binoculars. Or the guy.
Vogue U.K. brought these bracelets to our attention. If you love Monopoly, now you can wear the charms. The charm bracelet celebrates the 70th birthday of the game and has each piece in sterling silver or white gold. You can also order the pieces seperately. Legend has it that the inventor of the game used his wife’s own charm bracelet to set up the first game. Only 1,500 of the bracelets will be made and they come with a certificate of authenticity. A sterling silver bracelet with four charms of your choice costs approximately $270.
