Cool Thing of the Month

Bubble Wrap Keychain

Electronic Bubble Wrap
I've never fully comprehended the uncontrollable desire some people have to pop bubble wrap. But in the interest of preserving the world's supply of packing material, I present to you the Electronic Bubble Wrap keychain. Each press of a "real feel" rubberoid button causes the device to emit a lifelike (and I suppose, satisfying) pop sound. But it gets better. Every 100th press unleashes a random bonus sound instead of a pop (dog bark, cartoon sfx, bodily function, etc.). Big payoff. $9.99 from the good folks at ThinkGeek.
