Why? We don't know. The makers of 'Chambong' say that it's awesome but it doesn't seem like they've done any studies that substantiate that claim. If you're wondering how it even came about, we do have the answer to that one according to their website:

The origins of the first Chambong came about in early 2014, during a moment preempting the Super Bowl. We had an epiphany the week prior of the big event to create a “Super…Bowl.” The resulting device of our imagination harnessed an ability to hold an extraordinary amount of cannabis, however was sadly non-functional as a smoking apparatus. Fortune would prevail several evening later, while onlookers examining the piece remarked at how it looked like a fantastic wine “shooter”.  They promptly filled it with Champagne and experienced the resulting magic…And thus was born the glory that is — The Chambong.


And their reviews are pretty good/weird.

San Francisco has a reputation for high priced living.  Peter Berkowitz thought, why rent a room when I can build myself a Harry Potter cupboard to live in and pay much less to set up in someone's dining room? 



It's actually a pretty sweet setup with a cozy bed, a "skylight" for reading and nightlights all around the roof. He pays $400 a month for rent and the cost of the pod itself ended up being $1300, bring his total monthly costs to about $508 for a year according to his website



If you're in the San Francisco area and you would like to live in a professional quality fort that would make kid you super jealous, Berkowitz is available for consultations. He's charging a "very reasonable price" to help anyone who wants to build a pod for themselves and says he's, "I'm more interested in getting good at building pods than in making money at this point".

Looking to shave a few seconds off your pizza order? Well, you're in luck.

Domino's is testing out a new "Easy Order" button in the UK. And if you're really, really into pizza—this might do the trick for you.

From Engadget:

The Easy Order actually comes in two forms: a physical and a virtual button. The physical option is provided by Flic and is a tiny magnetic button that can be programmed to do a number of different things. We've seen it used to control various phone functions, like snoozing an alarm or taking a photo, in the past, but Domino's will pair it with an app over Bluetooth in order for it to become your pizza delivery companion. Simply save your address and payment details on the Domino's website or app and select your favourite order -- the rest takes care of itself.

We're one useless invention away from Smart House.

Breakups undoubtedly suck.

And seeing your ex in your Facebook Newsfeed continues to suck for many months after going through a tough breakup. But Facebook wants to ease that pain.

The company announced today a new feature that would soften the blow of any exposure to your ex on the platform.

When a person changes their relationship status on Facebook a series of options will appear.

You can limit what your ex-partner sees (photos, videos and status updates) and what you see from their profile.

"This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives. We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control," Facebook said in a blog post.

Sounds great, Facebook. Now can you delete all those couple's Instagram pics for us?

Finally—a dedicated poop key!

Because the workforce is now mostly made of Millennials and our language has devolved into tiny cartoon symbols, Austin-based company EmojiWorks has created an emoji keyboard.

That's right. We've come to this, Internet.

There are three versions of the keyboard, which connects through Bluetooth making it compatible with Mac, iOS and Windows. Here are the specs:

The Emoji Keyboard contains 47 emoji right at your fingertips, including the most common emoji, plus the thinker, taco, unicorn and robot from the recently released iOS 9.1 update. The Emoji Keyboard Plus has double the emoji plus more from iOS 9.1, including the middle finger and hot dog. The Plus also has skin tone modifier keys. The Pro model has everything the Plus has, but with more than 120 emoji.

The keyboard works just like a traditional caps locks key would. You just push the "emoji" button and choose the character for your situation.

Emoji keyboard starts at $89.95 and will start shipping in December.
