Sorry, I mean the “Inflatable Outdoor Color Dot Game.” This Twister-like game by Hammacher Schlemmer can hold up to 1,500 pounds — meaning you and your posse can all play together. Want it? Prepare to cough up a mere $2000.
This is the inflatable outdoor game that challenges up to 10 players to touch different colored dots on a playing surface using only their hands and feet. Based on the popular game that originated in the 1960s, and built by a company that only manufactures products for the amusement industry, the inflatable 18 oz., double-stitched vinyl 15′ x 15′ playing mat is comprised of 64 colored dots arranged in eight rows of eight dots each. An included 24″ diameter, 3′-high wheel spun at the beginning of each turn indicates which hand or foot players are to use and what color dot to touch. Contortions and human pretzel poses aside, no other part of the body may touch the playing surface; the last player to remain “standing” wins.

Communicating with […]
Want to build your own website? Even for a modest personal site, it was once assumed you might wait for days or weeks while a web designer hammered through arcane code on your behalf. That all sounds a little ridiculous today. And if you had to thank one company for that, it would probably be […]
