Onestation Pocket Emulators: Classic Games, With a Catch
These little mini console systems from China can emulate a variety of classic 8-bit and 16-bit console games. But I’m not really sure you’ll want one after you read this. On the plus side, these OneStation pocket game emulators are super cheap, with prices around $30 to $40.

Space Invaders Luggage

Space Invaders Luggage
Fans of the classic arcade shooter Space Invaders can now wear their pride on their shoulder with this travel bag. The Rockza Space Invaders bag is made from black PVC with a long shoulder strap.

Ok, I’ll say it now. This music player only plays one tune, “Voi Che Sapete,” from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, but it sure looks cool doing it. The Music Orb is a perfectly smooth wooden globe that contains a tiny mechanical music box.

Pioneer 5.1 Home Theater Does Away With Receiver Box

Pioneer 5.1 Home Theater Does Away With Receiver Box

Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows

Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows
Apparently, those iPhone demo kiosks in AT&T stores are wolves in sheep’s clothing… Here’s an interesting thought: When you turn a Windows XP machine on it’s side, does it become an Apple? Apparently, these kiosks are really running on Dell machines and Samsung displays.

Cardboard Boom Box Really Works

Cardboard Boom Box Really Works
This boom box has everything you’d expect in a portable stereo: an amplifier, speakers, even an iPod dock. But this one is made out of cardboard. While most portable stereos aren’t particularly waterproof, this one doesn’t stand a chance in a rainstorm.
