Half of our creative department moved house last week: me, from one south St. Louis neighborhood to another, and podcaster/writer Matthew from New York City to the wilds of New Hampshire. And we'd both forgotten how much it sucks. Pretty much the worst part of owning stuff is having to lug said stuff around. But what if they stuff could move itself? When Matthew and I played in the a band together, we would daydream about robotic amplifiers and drum kits that could just walk, roll, or fly from our practice space to the gig and then back home again. Or inflatable equipment that we could just deflate to load in and out. Or disposable equipment we could just throw away after the show. Why not apply those elegant principles to all human possessions - even the crap we sell at Woot? Your challenge this week:

Show us a past or current Woot product modified to make it easier to deal with on moving day.

Post your entry here by 11:59 AM CST on Monday, August 11, 2008. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

These Woot items have been combined Voltron style to a) move themselves, b) move your other woot refurbs, and c) get you drunk while doing so.

Ship it all smartpost. Karaoke Elvis will drive. And you'll have a nice month off between moving day and moving-in day!

Putting wheels on the Cummins P2400 Onan 2000 Watt Homesite Generator was a great idea... but child labor law enforcers frown upon the use of children to do the moving in a warehouse.

Garbage Banjo of Consternation. Just stick it out by the curb.



The garbage bag is from here: http://www.baddadradio.com/images/black-trash-bag-280x280.jpg

And then I did a crappy question mark in crappy Paint. Because it's carp.

I combined 2, they needed each other:



Just set it, and it wanders aimlessly to your new destination with your trailer. Nuff said, move done.

A homage to Monty Python and the other gifs on here. I wanted to do a deflating bag but thought a smashed bag would be funnier.

Oh yes, the Frog Family Desktop Bundle. Without a doubt the best product description of all time. I also see the Barbie vacuum. Very, very nice.

Step 1: Hit orbs off of your current home's roof towards your new home.

Step 2: Have someone at your new home catch the orbs.
