The first ashtray designed to weigh the amount of ash placed inside and give you an accurate indication of how much your smoking habits have brought you closer to death. Morbid I know but there’s some genius in it. This product was designed from the core to shock the smoker and make him/her think twice before lighting up.
It uses an internal weighing system. The built in microchip and LCD display then conveys how many days you have taken off your life by smoking so far. The whole tray itself gets darker as you delve closer to a wheezing end.

Extreme credit cards

Phone owners looking to personalize their handset can now send off their precious device to Colorware, the folks who will paint just about every electronic device under the sun. $150 gets you a new paint job, which includes two color choices for the back of the phone.
For a little extra, you can also customize the shiny metal and Home button on the front of the phone, the Apple logo on the back, and the earbuds and dock. Similar to Colorware's other offerings, you can also buy a prepainted iPhone in both the 4GB and 8GB capacities. One thing we're not digging is the giant Colorware logo that gets slapped on the back of the phone. You'd think shelling out $150 and voiding your warranty would keep it ad-free.
Just listen and laugh. This is absolutely priceless.
