There's also a teeny, tiny travel version of Magic: The Gathering, a SpaceX Vertical Landing Mentos & Diet Coke Rocket , a Flavor of the Day Desktop Calendar, a useless light switch that turns itself off once you turn it on, a VR Sensory Immersion Generator, designed to level up your VR experience, baRPG, which combines all the fun of a role-playing game and a pub crawl, the mysterious-looking product of indeterminate usage that bears a striking resemblance to a scary sex toy, the Plumbus, from AdultSwim's "Rick and Morty" and, our personal favorite, the "Attack on Titan" Colossal Titan Lawn Ornament -- because who doesn't need a giant inflatable creep looming over your neighborhood?
