Time Projecting Laser Pointer

Time Projecting Laser Pointer

We recently groaned at the misnamed Laser Clock, wishing for a device that could actually project the time of day a half-mile away, and now our wish has been granted. This business end of this 650nm red laser pointer projects the time fo’ reals, and also has a ballpoint pen…

So what’s with all the piano black?

So what’s with all the piano black?

It’s the flavour of 2007 in the electronics scene, but how long is it going to take for people to realise piano black is more nuisance than desirable feature? It looks awesome in pictures, but go to anywhere stocking these puppies and take a look at the floor stock. See…

Working All Day on a Treadmill Helps Lose Weight. Duh.

Working All Day on a Treadmill Helps Lose Weight. Duh.

Some genius doctors at the Mayo clinic built a “vertical desk,” essentially a treadmill with a computer attached, and found out that if you walked all day while working instead of sat you would lose weight. Who’s paying these people? Seriously, are you surprised that obese people lost weight when…

Atari Joystick Candle Holder

Atari Joystick Candle Holder

This one goes out to all of my old school, Pitfall-playing, Space Invader-destroying homies out there. This Atari candle holder is the work of artist Mixko and is not currently for sale, but if you own an Atari joystick you could probably create your own mold Mythbusters-style and begin manufacturing…

RAZR2 and The Four Carriers

RAZR2 and The Four Carriers

I’m pretty excited about the new RAZR2, and why shouldn’t I be? It just launched today. One of the positive aspects that Ed Zander stressed during the unveiling is that the RAZR2 will be out in two versions (EDGE and HSDPA) for GSM carriers and a third version (EVDO) for…

Pink Taser Looks, Stuns Like a Toy

Pink Taser Looks, Stuns Like a Toy

It’s unfortunate that this pink seal Taser isn’t an actual Taser and only gives people a slight zap. Why’s that? Because it would be quite funny to see a mugger be taken down with a cellphone strap that’s shaped like a pink seal when trying to steal some lady’s bag….

TiVo Rolls Out Universal Swivel Search

TiVo Rolls Out Universal Swivel Search

No sooner had TiVo sent us a pair of TiVo antennae than the company rolls out Universal Swivel Search, a capability that could add considerable search power to the already kick-ass interface. Starting with a program you already like, Swivel Search suggests others you might enjoy. It also shows you…

Solar System Chair Has Balls

Solar System Chair Has Balls

This is one weird-looking seat, called the Solar System Chair, perhaps because it lets you sit on cushy balls shaped like some of those nutty planets out there. So let’s see, your ass is on Uranus while your back rests against Neptune and one arm leans on Mercury while the…

Twirling Towers, Get Dizzy and Generate Power

Architect, David Fisher, has envisioned a new tower that includes one part wind turbines and one part independently motorized floors. Together they create a spinning generator of doom. The tower is based around a concrete center core and then each floor will be placed one on top of another (like…

His & Her TiVo Wedding Cakes

His & Her TiVo Wedding Cakes

This is the work of Debbie at DebbieDoesCakes (awesome name of a business) and it makes me wonder what kind of a couple loves TiVo so much to have the mascot as their wedding cake? I do have to compliment Debbie on the outstanding work. Each cake is 18-inches tall…

Sony Ericsson P1i Smartphone Video

Sony Ericsson P1i Smartphone Video

If you were intrigued by the Sony Ericsson P1 we told you about last week, here’s a video preview of the device. It’s a good walkthrough if you were wondering how the phone looks in the size of a normal person’s hands, assuming Jens Greve has normal-sized hands. Even with…

007 Cellphone For the Secret Asian Man

007 Cellphone For the Secret Asian Man

Oh yeah, we could totally see James Bond using this gigantic monstrosity of a cellphone. In our opinion, Roger Moore could have used this VIP 007 cellphone from China back in the ’70s, where it would seem completely futuristic and blend right in with the other tacky stuff they shoved…
