Vuzix Licenses Nokia Tech for Video Glasses with See-through Optics

Vuzix Licenses Nokia Tech for Video Glasses with See-through Optics
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.

ThinkGeek IRIS 9000 Dock Controls Siri, Won’t Try to Kill You (Unless Your Name is Dave)

ThinkGeek IRIS 9000 Dock Controls Siri, Won’t Try to Kill You (Unless Your Name is Dave)
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 Kisai Seven: For All You TRON Fanatics

Tokyoflash Kisai Seven: For All You TRON Fanatics
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.

Tony Hawk’s Freerunning Needs to be an Actual Game

Tony Hawk’s Freerunning Needs to be an Actual Game
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.

Super Mario Playing Cards are not from 19th Century Nintendo

Super Mario Playing Cards are not from 19th Century Nintendo
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.

Umbrella Coat Raincoat Keeps Rain, People Away

Umbrella Coat Raincoat Keeps Rain, People Away
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?

Tha Business Self-Defense Kit: You Hold All the Cards

Tha Business Self-Defense Kit: You Hold All the Cards
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.

R2-D2 Mint Candies: Altoid-Droid

R2-D2 Mint Candies: Altoid-Droid
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.

Doggy Tank Costume Sure to Drop Land Mines

Doggy Tank Costume Sure to Drop Land Mines
If you have one of those tiny little yapping dogs and plan to take him or her out Trick or Treating this year, this is the best costume ever. Turn that little beast into a tank.

GoPro HD Hero2: More Heroic than the Hero

GoPro HD Hero2: More Heroic than the Hero
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.

Ventura Sparc MGS Mechanical/Digital Watch Needs No Battery

Ventura Sparc MGS Mechanical/Digital Watch Needs No Battery
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.

Pixelated Mario Cushion: For Japan’s Club Nintendo Only of Course

Pixelated Mario Cushion: For Japan’s Club Nintendo Only of Course
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.

Lazer Stunt Chaser: A Pet You Can Wreck

Lazer Stunt Chaser: A Pet You Can Wreck
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.

LG Doubleplay: Split Keyboard Android Phone for Power-Texters

LG Doubleplay: Split Keyboard Android Phone for Power-Texters
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.

Man Tries to Turn Poop to Gold, Burns Down an Apartment Block in the Process

Man Tries to Turn Poop to Gold, Burns Down an Apartment Block in the Process
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.

Solar Ship: Air Ships Taking To the Skies with the Power of the Sun

Solar Ship: Air Ships Taking To the Skies with the Power of the Sun
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.
