T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta

T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta
Me thinks this is the absolute funniest t-shirt design I’ve seen in a while… Indie Tech’s brilliant Segway Beta T-Shirt is a must have for all hipsters, hipster-doofuses, geeks, dweebs, nerds and generaly cool people. I’ll be plunking down my credit card tonight for one of these $15 shirts.

Super Mario Brothers Number One Fan

Super Mario Brothers Number One Fan
You better act quick if you want this great piece of Nintendo nostalgia for your house. It’s a Super Mario Brothers ceiling fan, circa 1988, that I found over on eBay. I know Nintendo merchandised the hell out of this franchise, but a Super Mario ceiling fan?

USB Desk Fan Really Blows

USB Desk Fan Really Blows
Here’s a cool way to keep cool at your desk. These retro USB fans from Willstyle look like some sort of cage fan from an old computer, but they’re all new. They have a substantial ball-bearing fan motor, and can really crank out some wind.

Big Eye Webcam Not Messing Around

Big Eye Webcam Not Messing Around
This new webcam has a huge lens that lets you zoom in on tour subjects from far away. While they don’t say what the zoom ratio is, it’s clear that the telephoto lens increases the range substantially over most webcams.

Parappa Soundtrack for Free: Gotta Believe!

Parappa Soundtrack for Free: Gotta Believe!
If you’re a fan of the classic rhythm game Parappa the Rapper, you’re in for a treat. Sony today released free digital MP3 downloads of the game’s catchy soundtrack. Some of my favorites include “Cheap Cheap the Cooking Chicken’s Rap” and “Instructor Mooselini’s Rap” So what are you waiting for?

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker
This may look like some sort of funky 2-way speaker perched on a tall stand, but it’s actually a floor lamp. The Lightspeaker Lamp from Sweden’s LYX Furniture and Light features a “tweeter” and “woofer” which reflect light instead of sound.

Xbox 360 Price Cut Coming?

Xbox 360 Price Cut Coming?
While we didn’t get any price changes at the recent E3 expo, there’s a brand new rumor flying around tonight that the Xbox 360 will get a price cut in just a couple of weeks. According to an anonymous tipster over at Xbox-Scene, at least some part of the Xbox 360 product line will be getting a price reduction on August 8th.

Hitachi has taken the wraps off of a new payment technology that lets you make purchases with only your finger. The new biometric system can measure the unique signature of the blood vessels in your fingers to authenticate transactions.

Second Rotation: Turn Old Gadgets Into Cash

Second Rotation: Turn Old Gadgets Into Cash
Are you an early adopter like me? If so, I bet you’ve got some old electronic gear lying around and gathering dust. This new service makes it easy to easily make some cold hard lucre in exchange for your old gadgets.

Polar Bear Pours Cold Drinks

Polar Bear Pours Cold Drinks
Sometimes, I just wish I lived in Asia so I could easily get my hands on the great gadgets they crank out. My favorite find of the day has to be this Korean desktop cooler that looks like a polar bear.

IPhone Battery Replacement on the Cheap

IPhone Battery Replacement on the Cheap
While Apple is offering a service to replace batteries in the iPhone when they eventually wear out, there’s no question that the service is a quite expensive, costing $79.95 plus shipping. Now, the first (of what will no doubt be many) third-party battery replacement services is offering Apple some competition.

Toshiba Gigabeat-U Media Player: 24 Colors, No Periwinkle?

Toshiba Gigabeat-U Media Player: 24 Colors, No Periwinkle?
Toshiba has rolled out a new series of Gigabeat-U digital media players in a huge variety of 24 candy-like colors. With colors like bamboo, rattan, peony, persimmon and green onion, I thought I was looking at the paint swatches at the Home Depot.

Clarion Driveeye Records Car Crashes Automatically

Clarion Driveeye Records Car Crashes Automatically

The Clarion DriveEye camera automatically senses emergency braking and captures video before, during and after an accident.

Magicwheel: 20 Mph on a Single Wheel

Magicwheel: 20 Mph on a Single Wheel
This dramatic looking mode of transportation is said to be the modern day replacement for the skateboard. Using a single large bicycle (or I guess that would be unicycle) wheel in front and a smaller caster in the rear for steering, it lets you achieve speeds up to 20 miles per hour, simply using your own leg strength to kick off.

Retro Roman Numeral LED Clock Found on Ebay

Retro Roman Numeral LED Clock Found on Ebay
Long before the recent trend of strange digital timepieces that tell time in binary or in some other cryptic fashion, a little electronics company known as Heathkit made this fun LED clock that told time using Roman numerals.

Are You Looking at My Pac-Man Headgear?

Are You Looking at My Pac-Man Headgear?
I can’t imagine who the target market is for these ridiculous Pac-Man hats. While they might be cute on a 3-year old, for some reason, I don’t think they’d know what Pac-Man was. Besides, Namco says these are ADULT size.
