Ozaki iSuppli Gramo iPhone Speaker Still Needs to be Plugged in
If you’re looking for a unique dock and charger, look no further, because the Ozaki iSuppli Gramo iPhone Speaker, on top of having a quirky name, will do the job nicely.

While the idea of a set-top box is nothing new, this box will allow you to stream digital content and to smarten your ‘dumb’ HDTV thanks to Android. It’s something useful if your TV isn’t ‘smart’ yet, and doesn’t yet allow you to access your home network to stream files.

Disembodied Head Can Sing You a Lullaby or Two
Don’t worry, it’s not the disembodied head of a real person, although it definitely looks like one. This humanoid head is smarter than it looks, because it can actually read simplified music scores before singing it to you (or your child.)

Star Wars TIE Fighter Pinata: Beat the Candy out of the Imperial Fleet
It’s always fun to swing a stick and hit something. Especially when the reward for such violence is some sweet sugary candy. And hey, we all have a grudge against the Empire right?

14,450 Gumball Machine: No Coins Needed. Just Thousands of Dollars.
Do you own an amusement park? Are you a gumball addict? Are you Richie Rich? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you simply must have this monstrous gumball machine.

I was pretty disappointed that when NASA’s space shuttle program (STS) was shut down, they didn’t have a replacement ready to go. The replacement was actually canceled last October due to budgetary constraints. Nevertheless, check out this ingenious way to get into space, using a balloon instead of a rocket, so going into space won’t be as rough as you first imagined.

Scosche boomCAN Speakers: Campbell’s Soup Sold Seperately
While I can’t say for sure that I will never use portable speakers on my laptop or tablets, I probably won’t since I prefer using hi-fi headphones instead. But if you prefer to share your sound on the go, these portable speakers from Scosche have an interesting design and look pretty unique.
