LEGO Block as iPod Dock

LEGO Block as iPod Dock
These colorful plastic pieces may look a lot like a LEGO blocks, but they’re actually tiny iPod docks. Each block even has some scrawny little speakers built in, making it completely self-contained. Since the speakers don’t even require external power, don’t expect much volume, but what do you expect from something this small?

9-Volt Flashlight: a Simple, Bright Idea

9-Volt Flashlight: a Simple, Bright Idea
This tiny flashlight is about as minimal as it gets. Just snap the little LED light unit onto the top of any 9-volt battery, and voilà, you have a fully functional source of illumination. The compact light includes a trio of super-bright LEDs, which should be plenty for helping you find your keys in the dark.

Whether you think he’s cute, weird or disturbing, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the little brown guy.

Are You Looking at My Headgear?

Are You Looking at My Headgear?
So what do you suppose this strange contraption is? Could it be some kind of thought control device? Perhaps a new version of the Flowbee hair-vacuum? Maybe it’s an alien brain extraction system? Or is it just the latest fashion trend from the runways in Milan?

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.

Jazzmutant Lemur Multi-Touch Control for Musicians

Jazzmutant Lemur Multi-Touch Control for Musicians

Ezvision Video Glasses: My Eyes-on Experience
The folks over at ezGear were kind enough to send me a pair of their $299 ezVision Video Glasses to put them through their paces. The glasses are designed to produce the illusion of a big screen television, but are small enough carry around in your briefcase or purse.

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.

Want a Cool Looking Calculator? I Dunno, Alaska.
It takes some really striking design to get me excited about something as mundane as a desktop calculator, but the designer who created this one has bowled me over. The clear, ice-like acrylic case inspired the name “Alaska” for this LCD calculator.
