Sega Brain Checker Asks Just How Stupid Are You?

Sega Brain Checker Asks Just How Stupid Are You?
If you haven’t gotten a chance to play either of the Brain Age games on the Nintendo DS, you might want to check out this gadget from Japan’s SegaToys. Thanks to my limited knowledge of the Japanese language, I’m not 100% sure what the Brain Checker does, but it sure looks like it could be fun.

Mini R/C Helicopters Take to the Skies

Mini R/C Helicopters Take to the Skies
These radio-controlled helicopters are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The choppers come in a matched pair that can run on different frequencies, so you can have mini-dogfights with your friends. Pressing a button on the remote can fire an invisible IR beam at your opponent’s helicopter, making it start to spin out of control.

Remote Control Cars Send Passengers Flying

Remote Control Cars Send Passengers Flying
What fun are toy cars if you can’t smash them together and cause little car crashes? These new r/c cars encourage reckless driving by sending their occupants into the sky when they hit. No airbags here, just flying little men, spiraling through the air to an untimely demise.

Mario Brothers Mini Golf: Putt-Putt Forthefunofit

Mario Brothers Mini Golf: Putt-Putt Forthefunofit
Somehow I let these Mario Brothers miniature golf players slip between the cracks when they came out a couple of months back. But in my quest for holiday gifts for gamers, they popped back on my radar screen — so I guess it’s better late than never.

Lets Talk About Chicks, Man.

Lets Talk About Chicks, Man.
If cute is your thing, you’re in luck. These baby robot chickens from Japan are so sugary sweet, you might go into a diabetic coma. SegaToys’ Dream Chicks are lifelike baby birds that respond to real world stimuli.

USB Terminator: Deterrence via Annoyance

USB Terminator: Deterrence via Annoyance
Plug this beefy-looking plastic thug into your USB port, and it’s supposed to scare those who approach it away from your computer. While it’s called the USB Terminator, it looks more like the bouncer who’d tell you to hit the road because you can’t come into the trendy new nightclub dressed like Andy Sipowicz.

Mini Xbox Games in Cereal Boxes, Break Just Like the Real Thing

Mini Xbox Games in Cereal Boxes, Break Just Like the Real Thing
I was wandering the cereal aisle in my local grocery store looking for my morning sugar fix, when I stumbled this Xbox-themed promotion in boxes of cereal. Six Xbox-branded mini-games are available in specially-marked boxes of Kellogg’s cereal (I always wanted to say that), including Apple Jacks, Cocoa Krispies, Corn Pops, Froot Loops, Honey Smacks and Frosted Flakes.

Weird Japan: the Digital Push-Up Counter

Weird Japan: the Digital Push-Up Counter
It’s always fun to see what sort of quirky tech will come out of the creative minds of Japan’s electronic toy makers. The latest wacky gadget to find its way from Konami’s Party Goods division is the electronic Push-Up Counter.

Tiny Robots, Smaller Than a Quarter

Tiny Robots, Smaller Than a Quarter
These amazing micro robots measure in at under 1/4 cubic inch in volume, and weigh less than an ounce. Sandia National Labs has developed these tiny automatons which operate on the power of three watch batteries.

Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys

Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys
The title speaks for itself. Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys has to be the best product name I’ve heard in a long time. What more can you ask for than mini monkeys that dance along to sounds?

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart
I’ve always wanted a headline like that. It sounds like something out of Weekly World News. However, I assure you that this time it’s 100% accurate. The Mega Mech Airmagination Inflatable Robot has to be one of the worst product names I’ve heard in a long time.

Low-Tech Tetris

Low-Tech Tetris
We don’t need no stinking video game consoles to get our Tetris on around here. No-siree, we like to play it using real 3-dimensional blocks instead. Tetris Tower 3D is the classic puzzle-piece video game brought to life.

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams
The guys from online shop MyVirtualZone just tipped me off to these little playthings. The appropriately named Laser Top has a little laser beam that projects out of the side as you spin it around. While I actually think the effect of the LEDs and the laser are pretty cool when its spinning, I think that the music that plays as it goes is about as ridiculous as it gets.

Bandroid Robotic Trio Jams to Your Tunes

Bandroid Robotic Trio Jams to Your Tunes
This trio of pint-sized robots connects to your media player and rocks out to the beat of your favorite tracks. The robotic musical group, known as Bandroid, has a lead guitar player, keyboardist and drummer, which can each wildly gesticulate to the beat.

Rubik’s Cube Goes Into the Next Dimension

Rubik’s Cube Goes Into the Next Dimension
I’ve seen all sorts of variations on the original Rubik’s Cube puzzle, but never one quite like this. EastsheenCubes take multiple mini-cubes and join them together to form one crazy looking version of the classic mindbender.

Mini Robot Bugs From Japan

Mini Robot Bugs From Japan
I was checking out Bandai Japan’s website earlier today when I came across this new micro robot that they’re coming out with later this year. The Hex Bug series of miniature insect robots scurry along on six legs, just like real bugs.
