Mythos Xtr-50 Wallspeakers Thanks the Aluminum Diet for Its Slim Figure
How slim? The Mythos XTR-50 by Definitive Technology wowed folks at CES 2010 with it’s 1.5-inch thick body. The secret? Aluminum.

Korg Monotron Synth: Analog Sound Makes a Comeback

The Soft Drink Container Gets Square, Green

The Soft Drink Container Gets Square, Green
When it comes to getting drinks the only things that come in square containers are juice boxes and milk. Huey Lewis always said it was hip to be square, and this new design concept for green Coke bottles has turned up on Yanko Design that is pretty hip.

Kempler & Strauss Announce New Gold Version of W Phonewatch

Kempler & Strauss Announce New Gold Version of W Phonewatch
I think most people who retire today are lucky to get a potluck dinner and a cake as they leave before the fight over their vacated office ensues. In years gone by you might get a gold watch after years of service, but I don’t think that happens much today.

Robovie Mr2 Combines Robot and iPod Touch

Robovie Mr2 Combines Robot and iPod Touch
It’s kind of fitting that there is now a robot that will combine robotics with the iPod Touch. If you think about it, it actually makes sense. People have their iPods with them almost everywhere, and it’s a perfect device to have as the heart of a robot since it can access WiFi networks and the Internet.

AT-ATs and AT-STs Invade Postcards

AT-ATs and AT-STs Invade Postcards
Even though “cute aliens” are the idea behind Franco Brambilla‘s art, what I really find interesting is the funny vignettes into which Brambilla has injected these Star Wars vehicles and ships. I’ve never considered an AT-AT or an AT-ST cute, but these paintings, which are supposed to look like postcards, made me chuckle.

Russian Cow Barn Gets High Tech, Cows Get to Watch HDTV

Russian Cow Barn Gets High Tech, Cows Get to Watch HDTV
A loving and deep-pocketed farmer read somewhere that dairy cows that see green fields all the time are happier and produce more milk. So he bought a bunch of Samsung 40″ Series 7 LED TVs and had them installed in his cow barn, so now his cows can watch “a non-stop loop of world’s recognized green Swiss Alpine fields.”

Medl Tech Panel: Portable LCD Monitor Runs on Battery Power

Medl Tech Panel: Portable LCD Monitor Runs on Battery Power
I am a rather messy geek. I drink lots of Dr. Pepper and hate to get up while I work, which means I tend to accrue many cans on my desk throughout a day. Back when I used dual LCDs, that means that I ran out of room for junk on my desk fast so I moved to a larger single LCD.

IPod-Controls Pontiac Gto

IPod-Controls Pontiac Gto
Well, it looks like the iPod is now capable of remote controlling your car. Well not your car, but Dave Philipps did manage to control his classic Pontiac GTO with his iPod. Dave’s totally tricked-out GTO has wireless controls for the ignition, doors, windows, radio, drop top, and even his trunk.

Nesting USB Connectors: Like Christmas Lights, but for Your Gadgets

Nesting USB Connectors: Like Christmas Lights, but for Your Gadgets
I have about 163 different USB gadgets on my desk at any given time – all fighting for the six USB ports my computer has. To fix this issue I have a USB hub plugged in that more than quadruples the number of USB devices I can connect at once ensuring my humping dog flash drive has all the juice it needs to defile my computer.
