Hamilton Time Player Watch: Weird Inspiration, Shallow Implementation

Hamilton Time Player Watch: Weird Inspiration, Shallow Implementation
Hamilton claims that the Time Player watch was inspired by the fact that man used to believe that the earth was flat. So Hamilton made… a flat watch. A flat watch that displays the time in four different zones, and doubles as a pseudo-puzzle.

Wii Karaoke Mute-Mic: if You’D Rather Look Stupid Than Sound Stupid

Wii Karaoke Mute-Mic: if You’D Rather Look Stupid Than Sound Stupid

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure
A lot of gamers – myself included – prefer to use the third-person point of view when driving vehicles in video games. I just find it easier to steer if I can see how far my vehicle is from a turn; in first-person I always end up steering too late.

8-Bit Dr. Horrible

8-Bit Dr. Horrible
If you’ve never seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, you’ve probably been sleeping under a rock (or maybe you just have a real life). The humorous short film was created by Joss Whedon and his brothers, and starred Neil Patrick Harris in some ridiculous sci-fi musical theater.

Ostendo Crvd Curved Displays: Wrap Around Gaming

Ostendo Crvd Curved Displays: Wrap Around Gaming
I’m just getting used to the massive 2560 pixel wide display on my new 27-inch iMac, and then I had to see this gaming rig. The guys over at Ostendo are making these new CRVD displays, which not only offer a whopping 2880 by 900 pixel resolution, but are curved to engulf you in the action with a 90-degree field of vision.

CD Holders Look Like Candy

CD Holders Look Like Candy
I like to play PC games as often as I can find time and when I switch the discs out I don’t usually put them back in their box. I tend to leave them sitting around my desk on the label side.

Silifulin: Robotic Tail for Humans Should be Renamed Silly Foolin’

Silifulin: Robotic Tail for Humans Should be Renamed Silly Foolin’
Here’s another really strange and bizarre item from Japan. This outlandish device lets humans who always wanted to have tails actually have one.

PS3 Slim Goes Kind of Portable With the Hori Dock

PS3 Slim Goes Kind of Portable With the Hori Dock
If you’ve ever wanted to take your PS3 on the go, this could be the best way to do so. I’ve taken consoles on the road, but it usually involved lugging an LCD display and a bunch of other stuff to make it work.

Energizer Bunny Auction: I Bet the Bidding Will Go on and on and on…

Energizer Bunny Auction: I Bet the Bidding Will Go on and on and on…
AdAge ranks the Energizer Bunny as number 5 among the top advertising icons, right up there with the likes of Ronald McDonald and the Marlboro Man. We still see it on TV and online ads, but the modern Energizer Bunny is obviously digitally created.

World’S Most Expensive Mouse: Unsurprisingly Tacky

World’S Most Expensive Mouse: Unsurprisingly Tacky
You know the drill: take a gadget, make no improvements or additions to its functionality but plaster some rare gems on it and voila. You have a world’s most expensive <insert gadget here>. The World’s Most Expensive Computer Mouse – yes, that’s actually the gadget’s name – is made by Pat Says Now.

Star Wars Uncut: the Force of Crowdsource

Star Wars Uncut: the Force of Crowdsource
A remake of Star Wars: A New Hope will come out soon, but it won’t be a re-master, and it won’t feature big-time actors. Using the unlimited power of the Internet, A New Hope has been split into 472 15-second scenes, and the remake of each scene is up to any willing contributor, free to stamp their own unique take on the geektastic classic.

Pixel Pads: Like iPads, Only Paper

Pixel Pads: Like iPads, Only Paper
At first glance, the idea of a pricey pad of paper that looks like an iPad seemed a bit unnecessary to me. Then, I got to thinking that if I were an iPad app developer, these pads actually could be pretty handy for sketching out ideas for new apps.

Classic Video Games of the Renaissance

Classic Video Games of the Renaissance
The guys over at Worth 1000 recently ran a contest for the best mash-up between classical works of art and modern video games. The results… hysterical… The first place prize went to the God of War painting above, by David Owens.

Nintendo 3DS Concept is Awesome

Nintendo 3DS Concept is Awesome
I really like Olivier Demangel‘s take on the Nintendo DS. It’s true that the DSi XL has got larger screens, but Olivier’s design makes them even bigger. He calls it the Nintendo 3DS, which happens to be the name Nintendo has been using for their upcoming 3D console.

Apple Sells 300k Ipads on Saturday

Apple Sells 300k Ipads on Saturday
The big news this weekend (and last week and this week for that matter) was the launch of the iPad. The device landed in stores and on doorsteps on Saturday to hoards of geeks jumping up and down with glee.

Thanko USB Board has 80 Things That the iPad Doesn’T have

Thanko USB Board has 80 Things That the iPad Doesn’T have
…80 USB ports, that is. The board measures about 8 inches on each side and is powered by a 100 v AC adapter. And yes, it’s for sale. Thanko is selling the board for ¥14,800 (approx.
