Here’s something to start off your weekend. Probably the most universally pleasing thing in the world is (no, not THAT – Puritans hated that) bubble wrap. But you can’t always carry around a big wad of bubble wrap to de-stress. So the Japanese, who make everything better, came up with the Mugen Puchi Puchi bubble wrap gizmo.
You can get 10 hours of battery life from it, and the highlights are a mute button for public places (I’ll strangle you if you use it next to me on the train) and a special bonus sound every one hundred pops. For US$7, I might have to spring for one of these if I run into it in Tokyo this weekend.
