Here’s a true fashion statement for the videogame lover who has it all. Going all out with the retro look, this jacket is emblazoned with hundreds of pixelated little alien dudes from the arcade classic, Space Invaders.
After much speculation and hype, Apple today announced their new ultra-slim laptop, the MacBook Air. Measuring just 0.16″ to 0.76″ thick (when closed), the 3-pound machine is touted as the “world’s thinnest laptop”.
The new MacBook Air features a striking aluminum case design, and is skinny enough to fit inside of a standard manilla envelope.
Now I know many of you out there are holding your breath with anticipation of the next slick industrial design to come out of Apple at this week’s MacWorld show, but while you guys wait, I came across this unique computer design that I actually thought was worth a mention.

Here’s an interesting new tangible interface design for a music sequencer. Rather than using an array of buttons or a 2-dimensional control screen on a computer, this one generates rhythmic patterns using ball bearings.
Sequences are composed by placing the metal orbs in a grid of receptor cups which represent the different rhythm tracks (kick, snare, hi-hat and cowbell) along the vertical axis, and beats along the horizontal.
For a brief moment yesterday, an image appeared over on GameStop showing off this forthcoming add-on for your Rock Band performances. The kit includes everything you need to put on your own Spinal Tap-esque stage show in your garage, except for the 18-inch tall Stonehenge.
There’s nothing quite like a delicious virtual donut and a hot cup of paper coffee before parking it in front of the fake TV to get my day going.

What happens when a couple of robots have one to many Mai Tais? They do the Limbo and Hula, of course.
Designed and choreographed by custom robot builder Sumy Family, the bots were clad in grass skirts and native garb, and programmed to do some traditional Hawaiian dance as part of the final round of the 2007 ROBO-ONE competition at a Hawaiian-themed resort in Japan.
No, it doesn’t have three legs, so it’s not really a tripod, but it serves the same basic purpose. This ingenious little device screws into the tripod thread on the bottom of your camera, providing it with a stable platform for you to take impromptu photos from.
