Everybody loves ice cream, and making your own right at home has never been easier.

Periscope glasses

New Year's resolutions

These prism glasses could possibly represent the final frontier of laziness. The periscope-style mirror lenses magnify and reflect images so you can enjoy your shows, handheld games, or reading while laying down without even having to lift up your head. On the practical side, this does reduce neck strain that can result from awkwardly trying to prop your head up while lying on your back (or at the very least, that’s the excuse you can give if somebody finds these in your house). The Active Forever periscope glasses come in at just $11 from Amazon.
