'Star Wars' gun replicas, sleeper hoodie



We've all fallen asleep curled up on the couch in a hoodie at one time or another. Why not make it a regular thing with the sleeper hoodie? Made by Burton, the company that does snowboards and gear, the sleeper hoodie has an inflatable neck pillow (good for traveling), and comes with a toothbrush and ear plugs. You'll never need a sleeping bag again. Get one at Burton.com.

We're very impressed with Johnson Arms, a guy who makes custom weapons. But Brian Johnson's weapons are mostly Nerf guns made to look like sci-fi weapons or replicas from video games and films. Our favorite is a “Star Wars”-styled gun made from a Nerf rifle. Check out his designs at johnsonarms.wordpress.com.
