Egg Shaped Fridge is No Yolk

Egg Shaped Fridge is No Yolk
For some reason, this mini desk refrigerator makes me think of the spaceship from Mork and Mindy. [I’m (carbon) dating myself, I know.] Actually, it’s supposed to be a giant egg. Come to think of it, so was Mork’s ship.

Project Gotham Racing 4 to have Motorcycles?

Project Gotham Racing 4 to have Motorcycles?
The box art for the upcoming Xbox 360 racing game Project Gotham Racing 4 was revealed today. Unless my eyes are deceiving me, that’s a reflection of a motorcycle in the candy apple red finish of the car’s fender.

The All-in-One Keychain Gadget

The All-in-One Keychain Gadget
The typical Swiss Army Knife is loaded with blades, screwdrivers, a compass and even a toothpick. This all-purpose pocket gadget is a bit more practical for most lifestyles. The $15 Party Chain from Compact Impact combines an LED flashlight, universal TV remote control and a bottle opener so you can pop open a cold one while you surf your favorite channels.

Dumbest Person Ever

Dumbest Person Ever
I’m really hoping this forum post over on Blu-ray.com is fake… According to the poster of the thread, his friend was wondering why his shiny new Playstation 3 had stopped working, when he discovered the unthinkable.

And When There was No Crawdad to be Found…

And When There was No Crawdad to be Found…
Every once in a while, I’ll find something that necessarily doesn’t fit in with the cyber-electronic-whiz-bang theme of Technabob. But I figure, since I’m the Chief Cook and Bottle Washer here, “why not write about it anyway?” This is one of those times.

The Real Puffy Shirt

The Real Puffy Shirt
Here’s a fun one that must have slipped past my radar screen when it hit the circuit last year. This USB-powered clothing is designed to keep you cool on those warm Summer days. As long as you don’t mind looking like a complete fool, the air conditioned shirt plugs into your computer and blows air onto your sweaty body, keeping you cool all day long.

IPhone Knock-Off of the Week

IPhone Knock-Off of the Week
Now that Apple’s iPhone has hit the market, it’s time for a bunch of the cheap knock-offs from the Far East to start popping up. This iPhone clone is for those of you who want to look like you have an iPhone, but can’t afford it (or don’t actually need any of it’s best features.) Beyond it’s strikingly similar looks, the player has very little in common with Apple’s device.

Nike Triax Vapor 300: Futuristic Watch for Sports Fiends

Nike Triax Vapor 300: Futuristic Watch for Sports Fiends
I do my best to avoid showing you guys products that are just “concept” designs, so when I saw the image for this watch, I almost skipped right over it. Usually when I see industrial design work that’s as futuristic as this, I just assume it’s a conceptual mockup and move on to the next thing.

If you thought the Air Guitar Pro I showed you was for musical wannabes, I’ve dug up this truly amazing new gadget those of you who take your guitar talents more seriously.

Compact Discs Come in All Shapes and Sizes

Compact Discs Come in All Shapes and Sizes
While digital players have put a major dent in the CD business, there’s something about having your tunes stored on something a little more tangible. To shake the old CD up a bit, the designers of Poland’s Baba Akcja have taken the boring round disc and turned it into something far more visually interesting.
