Thought Controlled Cat Ears
Ah, Japan, land of weirdness, land of robotics, land of cute cat stuff. It all comes together in these crazy wearable cat ears that can read brain waves and move accordingly. After a few minutes calibration, these cybernetic(ish) prosthetics can be controlled by nothing more than your weirdo thoughts.
Show your weird friend that they are the weirdest kind of weird by giving them the tools to train a goldfish to play basketball and soccer. Yes, you read that right. With a little diligence it is possible to teach a fish some tricks. If you immediately know who you would give this to, you owe it to yourself to make this happen.
You know that thing where you mime talking on the phone with your hand, with your thumb at your ear and your pinky at your mouth? These Bluetooth gloves make that real. Sure, people will think you’re weird, but they already think that. And at least you won’t be wearing one of those stupid earpieces.
Weird meets cool in this unique over the shoulder bag that features a giant winking eye. This rather convincing optical illusion of a photo-realistic eye opens and closes depending on the angle of view. Scare potential thieves away with this creepy accessory.
Your friend or loved one may have already started to suspect something about the inherent absurd futility of life. If not, then perhaps you can inform them with this gift, which is an extraordinarily apt illustration of the horrifying predicament in which we the living find ourselves. Doing exactly what it says on the package, this box has no purpose other than to instantly turn itself ‘off’ when you try to turn it ‘on’. Despite being useless, we have to admit it does have a certain charm.
Wearing this might get someone labeled a paranoid schizophrenic or mistaken for someone with an uncontrollable urge to bite others, but that’s the price you pay for protecting yourself from whoever is listening in, be it the government, aliens, or worse yet, alien government agencies. That’s the world we live in. This is the answer.
You could just get them a gift card to a spa or for a massage, but why not go for a more interesting experience like cryotherapy? It’s basically a box you get into to get blasted by ridiculously cold air for a short period of time. Advocates say that the treatment rejuvenates the body and helps repair tissue damage. If your town doesn't have a cryotherapy place yet you could try a bathtub full of ice and a big fan.
Apparently this stuff really works. It’s fine to pretend it’s something else if the idea of a snail crawling across their face grosses them out. But of course gross is in the eye of the beholder, so maybe it’s not a big deal. Beauty demands sacrifices.
Mberry miracle fruit tablets are seriously weird. They make food that should normally taste sour taste super sweet instead. Seriously, your friends will be guzzling vinegar like its cola. Host the world’s weirdest dinner party by altering the way your taste buds work for a while.
