Vuzix makes a bunch of different styles of video glasses that put small screens in front of your eyes to simulate a large screen. The last set of video glasses we talked about from the company was the Wrap 1200 that simulated a 75-inch screen.
I can remember being freaked out by HAL 9000 when I was a kid. The thought of a computer that could think and try to kill you was pretty creepy. The main things I recall from the flick were that HAL said “Dave” a lot and had a glowing red eye that just glared at the screen when he spoke.
Tokyoflash’s watches are well-known from having somewhat obtuse ways of displaying the time. The newly launched Kisai Seven incorporates two pulsating LED rings to show the time. Initially, the display looks confusing, but once you take a closer look, anyone who can tell the time on an analog clock will have no problems with this one.
It’s only Tuesday, but I’ve already seen my favorite video of this week. Probably for the month. If like me you grew up playing the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games you’ll love this freerunning clip made by Vince Auletta, John McConaghy and Michael Corley.
Any gamer worth his salt knows that Nintendo wasn’t always a video game company. Founder Fusajiro Yamauchi started out in 1889 making and selling playing cards, particularly those used in a Japanese game called hanafuda. Fast forward to the 21st century and we have these Super Mario playing cards.
Just because something serves a decent enough purpose doesn’t mean that it should get made or be manufactured and released for public consumption. Remember the Privacy Shell that starts out as accessories like handbags or hats that can be folded out to form, well, a shell that can separate you from the rest of the world?
Most people hear the word “card” and associate it with business (business cards), with celebrations for special occasions (greetings cards), or with failing grades (report cards). Few will actually relate “card” to something as far-fetched as, let’s say, self-defense.
So why is it that every time I think that all possible ideas for new Star Wars merchandise have been 100% exhausted, someone comes out with yet another product which nobody ever thought about. Case in point, these R2-D2 mints.
I have been using a GoPro HD Hero Motorsports edition camcorder for a long time now for filming the fun I have down at the race track. The little cameras shoot great video and still shots, even if the menu of the original is hard to use.
I have seen a bunch of watches over the years that are mechanical action units where you don’t need to wind them and they don’t need batteries. These watches are the sort where the motion of your arms as you move around keeps the watch wound up.
Sometimes I really hate how Nintendo treats us Americans. The Japanese Club Nintendo gets all manner of cooler items compared to what we get. It’s not fair, and yes I’m whining. Why? Because I can’t get my hands on this Dot Mario Cushion.
Stop trying to make your cat – or dog, iguana, little brother etc. – follow your laser pointer; he’ll never be as awesome or as funny as the other pets on YouTube. Save yourself the effort and get yourself a Lazer Stunt Chaser.
There’s no doubt that LG’s latest phone was designed for teenage hyper-texters. You know the kind, the ones that can text without even looking at their miniature keyboards, the touch-texters. The LG Doubleplay has a split keyboard for even faster typing, and comes with a secondary touchscreen which sits between the two halves of the keypad.
Now who hasn’t dreamed of having the Midas touch, and possessing the ability to turn whatever they touched into gold? Obviously, there are a lot of downsides to it (like you could accidentally turn the people you love into, well, solid gold), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t individuals who won’t resort to crazy things in order to turn stuff into gold.
I just love airships. I wish I could travel all over the world in an blimp. Sure, it would take longer than a 777, but it would be way more relaxing. I wish that there would be airships all over the place, kind of like in the TV show Fringe.
