The $10 Playstation 3

The $10 Playstation 3
The guys over at Destructoid dug up this $10 beauty. It’s a cheap gaming system which looks NOTHING like Sony’s PlayStation 3, but has the audacity to package itself as a “SONY PS3.” The system actually appears to be one of those shoddy “Famiclone” systems designed to play old games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka “Famicom” in Japan.) My favorite part of the packaging has to be the bad Engrish translation that reads “Next System PlayStation Meeting.” For some reason, I don’t think you’ll be able to cram your Blu-ray disks in this one.

IPhone Interface Knock Off on Pocket Pc
Tech geek Tzywen was too impatient to wait for the upcoming Apple iPhone, so he created a custom launcher application for his Microsoft Pocket PC which is based on the iPhone user interface.

Robot Thrill Ride Seems Like a Bad Idea

Robot Thrill Ride Seems Like a Bad Idea
Some sick individual strapped their buddy to a seat at the end of a FANUC industrial robot’s arm and then ran him through the spin cycle. They captured all of the fun and festivities in this video clip: I wouldn’t want to be the one sitting in that chair.

Slim Mouse With Retractable Cord and Scrollwheel

Slim Mouse With Retractable Cord and Scrollwheel
While plenty of computer mice have gone wireless these days, there’s still nothing quite like the responsiveness and ease of use of corded mice. This new mouse is just 8mm thick and features a unique retractable USB cable for easy travel.

Hard Disk Drive Swallows Itself

Hard Disk Drive Swallows Itself
Here’s an odd one from Hong Kong importer Brando. It’s an external hard disk enclosure that looks exactly like an internal hard drive. The drive enclosure is literally a large mock version of a hard drive that you can place any 2.5-inch IDE drive inside of, and connects to your PC or Mac via a USB 2.0 port.

What Do the Beatles and the Wii have in Common?

What Do the Beatles and the Wii have in Common?
While I’m not certain what the connection is between the Fab Four and Nintendo’s latest game console, I do find this T-shirt design quite amusing anyway. The Let it Bii shirt is 20 bucks from Nerdy Shirts features Nintendo “Mii” avatars designed to look like John, Paul, Ringo and George.

At the heart of Philips’ Entertaible system is a 32-inch touch-sensitive LCD embedded into the top of a table.

Nasa’s Great Space Coaster
NASA is thinking about a new technology to save the lives of astronauts if something goes wrong at launch time. The proposed new emergency escape system is actually based on those vertical drop roller-coasters that have popped up at amusement parks around the country.
