20. Dog-Pooping Ads
The Kackel Dackel Game is both educational and icky as the object of the game is to watch a plastic dog poop out its “food.”
By squeezing a pump handle, the “food” runs through the dog’s body and out its bottom. Perhaps kids have a lot of fun catching the feces? Regardless, this game sure is an interesting toy to help kids learn about the digestive system. The Kakel Dackel Game can be seen as literally crappy, but fun at the same time!

The campaign aims to reduce violence against women and children while increasing young people’s awareness about healthy relationships. The print ads include bullying messages that can be found in today’s digital age. ‘The Line’ campaign draws the line in what is and isn’t acceptable.17. Spectacular Spinal Seating
When I look at the L5 Spine Bench, I can only picture it in a museum next to other pre-historic fossils. This strange seating fixture looks like the former backbone of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Clearly inspired by the human body, the L5 Spine Bench was designed by Vancouver-based sculptor Marie Khouri. Exhibited at the 2010 IDS West show, this voluminous vertebrae sculpture is made out of lacquered wood and a whole bunch of imagination.16. Fashionable Feline Calenders
Fashion House United Bamboo will feature its new winter collection in an adorable way. The fashion house came with an idea of creating a calender featuring some fashionable cats.
The company held a special audition to find right cat models with a penchant for fashion. The uniqueness of United Bamboo’s feline calender is that it is non-photoshopped. The calender features different cats in various outfits for each month. Priced at $50, the 2011 cat calender can be obtained from the official site of United Bamboo.15. Nudity-Concealing Carriers

The Compeixalaigua Steamer Bowl is a silicone steam roaster for Lekue, a company specializing in kitchen-ware.
The flexibility of the silicone allows the design to function in two ways. Fold the two ends together and the exposed sides provide air circulation, making the Compeixalaigua Steamer Bowl effective steamer.12. Stereotype Swatch Ads
Unfortunately, the world still runs a muck with racism and socioeconomic soft spots that are blatantly laid out in these LICRA prints.

Urging the public to “do something about discrimination,” these LICRA prints instill awareness with the intention of affecting a paradigm shift in society.11. Book Storage Seating

The Buy Life campaign may seem like social media suicide, but the macabre movement is for an amazing cause.
Alicia Keys’ “Keep A Child Alive” organization has spawned the Buy Life concept joining with other mega celebs that will donate their digital lives to raise awareness to those affected by HIV/AIDS. This means logging out of Facebook, leaving the Twitterverse and boycotting the blogospheres until their lives are ‘bought back’ by charitable donations.

Now you can blast aliens just like Sigourney Weaver with the ‘Aliens’ Pulse Rifle. This replica rifle is a near spot-on remake of the assault rifle used in James Cameron’s sci-fi blockbuster ‘Aliens.’
The ‘Aliens’ Pulse Rifle features an ammo counter, collapsible stock and moving grenade launcher handle. All of this authenticity doesn’t come cheap, as the replica ‘Aliens’ rifle comes in at $900.

3. Fart-Fighting Briefs
So long as you’re wearing ‘4SKINS’ underwear, there’s no such thing as a “silent but deadly” odorous discharge. Made of cotton and spandex, these tighty-whities have been enhanced with Nano-Tex technology that acts as a smell neutralizer within the fabric.
While allowing your prized parts to breathe, ‘4SKINS’ underwear prevents the escape of bad air. The nanotechnology attracts odors and prevents their release into the room. Designed by Australian-based Gilbert Huynh, ‘4SKINS’ underwear will spread quickly, but flatulence will not.2. Athletic Designer Prosthetics
There may be tons of prosthetic designs out there, but the Adidas Symbiosis is the first to come from such a popular sport’s label. That’s not the only first, however, that this prosthetic boasts.
