USB Snakecam Has IR, White LED Lights

My problem with webcams is that most have no way to record the happenings in the dark. How am I supposed to sell my completely legal home movies without the other finding out that I’m recording said legal movies? This USB Snakecam solves that problem with two IR LEDs that…

Chalkboard, Chalk and Eraser Cellphone Strap

Chalkboard, Chalk and Eraser Cellphone Strap

The reason why we’re so into cellphone straps here is for their ability make otherwise boring cellphones slightly more interesting—or great cellphones a little greater. Case in point? This chalkboard cellphone strap. It’s a miniature chalkboard complete with chalk and eraser so you can doodle or write little notes to…

Mini Castle Mini Alarm For Your Ear

Mini Castle Mini Alarm For Your Ear

Although the idea of an in-ear alarm clock that doesn’t bother your roommates is sound, this implementation is quite poor. The Mini Alarm does go inside your ear, but it hangs out so much that it’s bound to fall out when you’re flopping around like an injured whale during REM….

PQI Teases Us With Speedy 256GB Solid-State Drive

PQI Teases Us With Speedy 256GB Solid-State Drive

The race toward affordable solid-state notebook drives is about to goose itself into hyperdrive, but PQI is coy about the pricing of its SSD Turbo+ line of solid-state storage, starring its latest 256GB solid-state notebook drive. What’s so great about that? It’s a speedy Serial ATA (SATA) drive, and it’s…

Rumour: iPhone Data Plan at $30

Today, much of the tech press is interested in speculating on the iPhone’s data plan. Here’s something new to add to the conversation. Last week, when a Cingular business sales rep told me that the date for release was June 11th, she also told me that the data plan would…

Helio Ocean: The Cake

Helio Ocean: The Cake

Our female-fearing cousins over at Kotaku are familiar with cakes made in the shape of their favorite things (games), but we don’t often get the pleasure of eating our own gadgets. That’s why this Helio Ocean cake made by a geeksugar reader is so sweet (heh). The cake itself looks…

Invisible PC a Sign of Things to Come

Invisible PC a Sign of Things to Come

Here’s a PC with a 1-inch-thick case by Trident, and it’s so quiet and well-hidden that the company calls it “invisible.” You don’t see it? It’s right there, attached to the back of that monitor pictured above. It has the industry-standard VESA mounting holes on either side, so you install…

Is This Lenovo’s ThinkPad Reserve Edition?

Is This Lenovo’s ThinkPad Reserve Edition?

You’ll want to take this with a grain of salt, but the folks at Notebook Italia seem to have images of Lenovo’s upcoming Intel’s Metro concept. If this is the Reserve, I like what I see (although I’d prefer no leather and an optical drive). What do you guys think?…

Japanese Custom Vans are Insane

Japanese Custom Vans are Insane

In the States, “pimping out” your vehicle generally involves adding oversized subwoofers, gaudy rims and stupid- looking ground effects kits and spoilers. It’s a masculine, masturbatory affair that I never quite understood the appeal of. In Japan, they like to pimp out vans. It’s no less masturbatory, but it’s certainly…

Vu Coffee Table For Your Ugly Mug

Vu Coffee Table For Your Ugly Mug

Don’t just roll your eyes when your girlfriend says its time to update your crappy bachelor furniture. (After all, two overturned crates that read “Property of US Mail” topped by half of the bathroom door you once ripped out in a moment of drunken frustration haven’t been considered avant garde…

Slurpr Wi-Fi Box Sucks Up Six Signals for Super Broadband

This porcupine-looking box is call Slurpr, and it’s bristling with electronic gear inside, namely six Wi-Fi interfaces bundled together to make one blasting fast super-broadband connection with nine Ethernet ports for all to enjoy. You may have noticed multiple Wi-Fi networks showing up when you boot up your laptop, right?…

M500 Wristwatch Phone Shipping

M500 Wristwatch Phone Shipping

A variant of the wristwatch cellphone that we told you about last year is now shipping in Australia. The M500 by SMS Technology is now shipping in the land down under for an extremely high $1,000 (that’s Australian money). We learned last month that this same phone is trying to…

Jet-Powered Semi Truck Races Plane

This video of the world’s fastest truck racing a plane makes me ponder: Why don’t they put jet engines in more vehicles nowadays? Jet fuel is cheaper than regular unleaded now, right? Might as well just slap the jet engine onto the back of my Civic. –Travis Hudson [Via Techeblog]

4-Port USB ExpressCard Hub is Obvious, Convenient

4-Port USB ExpressCard Hub is Obvious, Convenient

With all the USB stuff we post on here, you’re bound to be running out of ports on your laptops, desktops, and everything else that has slot for USB. That’s why this ExpressCard USB hub is so convenient. Instead of using an external hub, this ExpressCard slides into your computer…

Haro Gundam Mac Mini Case

Haro Gundam Mac Mini Case

If you’ve been a Giz reader long enough, you’d remember the Gundam Haro case for mini PCs. Well, Bandai (or whoever made this) has retrofitted it for Mac minis as well. The case itself is actually more impressive in motion than it is in still shots, extending out its “ears,”…

Real-Life Transforming Optimus Prime Costume

Real-Life Transforming Optimus Prime Costume

Our friends over at Everything USB just tipped us off to this real-life transforming Optimus Prime costume from Hong Kong. It’s a real costume—there’s actually a man inside—that transforms from robot to truck mode without making the wearer bend his spine in three different directions. The costume looks pretty great…

LG Simpure L2 Phone Goes Back to Basics

LG Simpure L2 Phone Goes Back to Basics

It’s NTT DoCoMo and Japan-only, but we can only wish the LG Simpure L2 pushes the idea that simple phones have their place in a world of increasingly complicated and smartypantsy cells. At least, that’s what NTT DoCoMo says. To me, with its dual camera and video-conferencing functions, this 17.6mm-thick…

Iseey Miyake OVO Minimalist Watch

Iseey Miyake OVO Minimalist Watch

Even though this watch doesn’t have MSN or tell you when someone’s calling, we’re still in love. Why? Because we love minimalist watches. Instead of having two hands radiating from the center, this Issey Miyake OVO watch has two dials on the outside. The only way this could get any…
