Here’s a unique digital media player from Japan’s Victor/JVC. It’s a completely self-contained waterproof audio system that can float in your tub. When Victor’s XA-AQ33-W media player isn’t swimming around the bathtub with you, it can head to dry dock in a stand that sits on your bedside table.

Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy

Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy
Sure, there are plenty of companies making arcade cabinets these days, but I’ve never seen one quite like this. The cabinet is translucent and gives you a light show while you get your game on.

Big news tonight for Xbox 360 fans… A demo of the anxiously anticipated FPS, Bioshock has hit the Xbox Live Marketplace tonight. The demo weighs in at a hefty 1.3 gig, so you’ll probably end up leaving your console on overnight (like me) to grab the full download.

The Mix Tape Goes USB

The Mix Tape Goes USB
For those of us who were born in the pre-MP3 era, the idea of creating a custom mix of your favorite tunes and putting them on a cassette tape was one of the most romantic things that you could do for your significant other (unless you happened to include “That’s What Friends Are For” or “The Breakup Song” on there.) The oh-so-clever designers over at Suck UK have put together this kit that lets you make a modern version of the mix tape.

Nintendo Ds Lite Gets a Chrome Case

Luxeed LED Rainbow Keyboard: Disco on Your Desk

Luxeed LED Rainbow Keyboard: Disco on Your Desk
Is that drab old monochromatic keyboard getting you down? This keyboard from Korea’s Luxeed features color changing LEDs under each and every key. While it can certainly be used to produce seizure-inducing displays of blinking color, the keyboard comes with software that lets you do more subtle things, like just set the keyboard to a light up with a single hue that strikes your mood, or create intricate patterns of color.

Pac-Man Shot Glasses: Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Drinky

Pac-Man Shot Glasses: Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Drinky
Nothing goes better with a game of 80’s classic arcade game Pac-Man than getting completely looped doing shots of your favorite booze. At least that’s what I think Namco was trying to say with this set of commemorative Pac-Man shot glasses.

I guess news of this Transformers Optimus Prime iPod dock has been floating around for a few months now, but this is the first time I’ve seen up close photos of this fun compact stereo in action.

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender
A couple of months back, I showed you a rather silly beer-pouring robot that seemed to do nothing more than slow down the process of pouring you a brew. On the other hand, this ingenious robotic drink machine actually looks pretty cool.

7-Inch Flip Screen for PS3, Why?
I can’t figure out why you’d want to do this, but there must be somebody out there who wants a tiny screen strapped onto the top of their Playstation 3. Nevover Electronics’ flip screen for the PS3 is designed to mount securely on the top of the console, and provides a 7-inch TFT LCD panel for viewing games and videos.
