Suspend the feeling of utter disbelief when you see this. Its actually real. It’s a proper, I hesitate to say, “sport” in Finland where some 10,000 girls are doing it. There’s even a national championship. Plus BBC reported on it – you can’t doubt the BBC! It is however quite bizarre, you can’t argue with that.

Hobbyhorsing in Finland

Hobbyhorsing in Finland

World, behold the wonder that is hobbyhorsing. There’s even a documentary about it.

I sincerely hope this is a joke. A bluetooth enabled salt shaker that plays music plus you can use it for mood lighting. Again – I sincerely hope this is a joke. A California-based “lifestyle” company called Herb & Body (apparently without a website) wants to finance the insane product through Indiegogo crowdfunding platform from June 15 on.

Some googling dug up an old PR document from 2015 which describes the same product from the same company but with some more sane (not by much) specs. It was supposed to be the worlds first digital salt dispenser. It was supposed to help consumers measure, track and control their salt consumption. A couple of years later they apparently decided to up the ante with a speaker and some LEDs.

Coming soon. Price tag as well.
