Audi Auto-Mobile Phone

Audi Auto-Mobile Phone
While most of us have driven a vehicle while we’re on our cell phone, this is the first time I’ve seen a mobile phone that actually is a car. From what I can tell, this mobile phone from China is doing its best impression of an Audi A9 concept car.

Metaphys Lunacalante CD Player Exposes Its Disc

Metaphys Lunacalante CD Player Exposes Its Disc
This CD stereo out of Japan features a unique design that has part of the spinning CD stick out of its case. From what I can tell, you insert the disc into a slot on the top of the case, then a motor pulls it in and about 1/4 of the disc sticks out of the bottom of the player as it spins.

Philippe Starck’s Latest Fossil Watches

Philippe Starck’s Latest Fossil Watches
I’m always struck by the graceful simplicity of Phillipe Starck’s watch designs. His latest creations are as dramatic as anything else I’ve seen in his past collections. The highlight of these as-yet-unnamed watches is their unique see-through case design.

The Clone Wars: Xbox 360 Vs Playstation 2

The Clone Wars: Xbox 360 Vs Playstation 2
You’ve got to hand it to these junkmeisters for their creativity. Check out these slightly familiar video game consoles from a schlock shop down in Mexico. I’m not sure whether I like the X-Game 360 or the PowerStation 2 better, but these cheap packaging copies are clearly designed to fool some unsuspecting buyer into thinking they’re getting a great deal on a real console.

Wii-Mote Knock Off Spotted at Wally World

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Every cool looking electronic device, from the Apple iPhone to the Sony PSP eventually gets its case design copied, usually with some sort of unrelated junk stuffed under the hood of the doppelgänger.

Q*Bert + Quilt = Quiltbert

Q*Bert + Quilt = Quiltbert
Remember the expletive-spouting orange dude from 1980s arcade game, Q*bert? Well the strange little guy has now been immortalized in this awesome handmade video game quilt by Lenore, an artist over an Evil Mad Scientist Labs.

Lexon Status Wall Clock: Information Overload?

Lexon Status Wall Clock: Information Overload?
This clock kind of reminds me of watching those information screens on Bloomberg TV. LEXON’s Status digital wall alarm clock lets you check the time, date, day and weather forecast all at a quick glance. By combining all of these features onto a single large LCD screen, the Status clock gives you a heads-up display of all this information at once.

Vestal Watches: Analog and Digital Harmonies

Vestal Watches: Analog and Digital Harmonies
I recently came across watchmaker Vestal, who makes original designer watches with a decidedly modern spin. The artists of Vestal use music as their inspiration for their designs, and their music video filled website reinforces this sentiment.

Bioshock Release Date One Week Early?

While those of us who played the supremely awesome Bioshock demo are salivating to get our hands on the full game, a few lucky stiffs have been able to pick up copies of the game a full week ahead of its 8/21 release date.

There’s just something about anything with more than four legs crawling around that gives most people the willies. This centipede robot kit will have those folks heading for the hills. The Gakken Mechamo centipede robot measures in at about a foot long, and runs on batteries.

The Wireless Cheese Cutter

The Wireless Cheese Cutter
Have a juvenile sense of humor? Now you can get out your immature tendencies with this remote controlled version of the “classic” Whoopee Cushion. Just place the battery-operated receiver unit under your unsuspecting coworker’s chair, head back to your cubicle and press the wireless trigger and let the mayhem ensue.

Here’s a fun one. Some guys in Japan has taken an old Super Nintendo (known as the Super Famicom over there) and turned it into a Windows PC. The computer is running a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate.

Mr. Hopkinson’s Computer: if Stephen Hawking Could Sing

Mr. Hopkinson’s Computer: if Stephen Hawking Could Sing
Text-to-speech software meets alternative music with this strangely compelling computer which has been programmed to sing. Mr. Hopkinson’s Computer sings covers of everything from Radiohead to Portishead to The Stone Roses in his computerized drone. In the video clip below, he even does a little sassy monologue and sings The Pixies classic Gigantic along with a live band.

Dice Itpa-220: iPod Tube Stereo on a Budget
