Bring a little bit of that carnival feel to your cubicle with this mini Whac-a-Mole desktop game.
The dreadfully named “Whack It” game connects to your USB port and lets you play with yourself at your desk.
Now you can have the dumb but lovable dad from The Simpsons take up residence on your desk with this fun Homer Simpson USB Lamp. But just like its namesake, the light is a bit of a dim bulb, so don’t expect to light up an entire room with it.
(Sub)urban warfare has a new face, and it goes by the name of Paintball Panzer. The pint-sized tank has a turret-mounted paintball gun which lets you fire rounds of paint ammo while keeping you safe and sound from the tomatoes and eggs which may be thrown at you in return.
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?
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.
Already insanely popular with hipster-doofuses and the artsy-fartsy set around the globe, Domo-kun (aka “Domo”) is a strange little character that’s been seen on Japanese television screens for about ten years. Whether you think he’s cute, weird or disturbing, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the little brown guy.
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?
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.
The other day, I told you about a tabletop multi-touch interface for creating music sequences. While I was researching that story, I came across an interesting touchscreen interactive music controller device that you can actually get your hands on for yourself.
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.
This nifty airplane-inspired desktop fan will help you keep your cool while you’re slaving away surfing the Internet.
The fan plugs into your USB port, and has a soft “propeller” that’s designed to not slice your digits off if you happen to get in its way.
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.
If you have a mini-fridge in your cubicle, you might have run into the occasional thief making off with your precious pop. This new fridge seeks to change that by requiring payment before doling out your canned beverage of choice.
Crosley portable turntables have been around since the 1950’s. Now they’ve added a modern spin to their briefcase-like record players by adding the ability to easily rip tracks to your Windows PC or Mac.
The Crosley Keepsake USB Turntable not only lets you play back and listen to your old albums through its built-in stereo speakers, but includes a USB output.
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.
