Who says paper airplanes are just for kids? With the Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit from TailorToys, they’ve definitely come into the grown-up arena. Just fold up a regular piece of copy paper into your favorite airplane design, then clip on the electric propeller and watch it buzz around the office. It’s a fabulously nostalgic way to avoid getting work done; $19.99, TailorToys.com.
Forget all the bells and whistles. This watch doesn’t even have a face. Meet the Mutewatch. It looks like a fatter version of a LiveStrong Bracelet, but that band of rubber hides a secret: a touch-sensitive screen which allows you to swipe through clock, alarm and timer functions. The alarms trigger a vibration in the band which automatically adjusts its intensity to how much you’re moving around, so you’ll never miss an appointment; $260, MuteWatch.com.

Forget “Furthest Solo Sail” or “World’s Biggest Pumpkin” — these weird world records are way more fun. Maybe they’ll inspire you to try for one of your own.
It’s either a photographer’s dream come true — or worst nightmare. We’re talking about the world record for “Largest Gathering of People Wearing Underwear” comprised of 116 skivvy-wearers in London’s St. Pancras train station.
Here’s one that represents a very important life skill: the record for “Carrying The Most Stein Glasses Full of Beer”. The current record-holder is Bavarian-born Australian Reinhard Wurtz, with 20 steins.
The competition remains fierce in the category of “Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Waldo.” The initial record set at Rutgers University in 2009 has now been broken twice, most recently by 3,657 Waldo-lovers in Dublin.
