Import Site Lik-Sang Killed by Sony’s Lawyers
Lik-Sang, one of my favorite places for imported game systems and accessories from the Far East has been unexpectedly shut down as a result of increasing pressure from pending litigation from Sony. The nail in the coffin appears to be a recent judgment that ruled their sale of PSP consoles from Asia to Europe was unlawful.

Handheld 3d Object Scanner
The ZScanner 700 from Z Corp lets you scan three-dimensional objects without requiring any complex mounting hardware or tripods. Typical 3D object scanners have to be mounted with a tripod or mounting arm, and it’s almost impossible to scan small, enclosed spaces or objects which could not be brought to the scanner.

The Only Reason to Play Sim Games

The Only Reason to Play Sim Games
Face it, the reason we play sim games is so we can act out our inner God complexes. Who here among us didn’t just build up our SimCities just so you could unleash Godzilla and a tornado on them?

Dopod P800w: Windows Smartphone With Gps
I’ve seen phones with GPS and PDAs with GPS, but this is the first time I’ve seen a full Windows Mobile phone with built-in GPS navigation capabilities. The Dopod P800W is a full Windows Mobile 5.0 smartphone with 802.11b/g wireless, Bluetooth and an integrated SiRF III GPS receiver.

Rejected Wii Game Concepts

Rejected Wii Game Concepts
With all the ridiculous looking gameplay videos we’ve seen coming out for the new Nintendo Wii, I thought you might find this amusing: I can’t decide whether I like the tea time or the tattoo artist game better.

The $800+ Compact Disc

The $800+ Compact Disc
One of the concerns about conventional CDs and DVDs is that they will eventually lose their data at some point in the future. In order to solve this problem, a Japanese recording engineer has developed the first compact disc made from glass.

The Deconstructed LED Clock

The Deconstructed LED Clock
We’ve seen tons of retro LED clock designs emerge over the last couple of years, but this one takes the cake. The $89 Open Edition LED Clock breaks the digits of the clock into four self contained displays (2″ x 1.5″ x 1.5″ each), attached by cables.

Playstation 3 Model Comparison
Pictures of the 20GB and 60GB models of Sony’s Playstation 3 console have surfaced and we can finally see the differences between the two models. While the 20GB model features a completely black case, the 60GB model features some (IMHO, tacky) chrome accents.

Samsung’s upcoming CLP-300 and CLP-300N claim to be the world’s smallest and lightest color laser printers. The printers measure just 15.4″ W x 13.5″ D x 10.4″ H and weigh less than 30 lbs each. They feature a unique toner system which minimizes the size of the printer as well as cutting down on the noise of mechanical toner systems in competitors’ printers.
