The rivalry between water and consumer electronics is one of the most legendary rivalries known to man. It’s right up there with Itchy & Scratchy, WOW & Life, Me & College. Recognizing the tragic state of affairs between two of man’s most beloved things, gadget manufacturer/ peacekeeper of non-living things Tokyoflash stepped in and gave us two gigantic candles that poop gray sludge.

A while back, I told you guys about an MP5 media player that didn’t seem to do anything more than any other conventional media player. So when I saw this new MP7 player, I tried not to get my hopes up too high for any kind of innovation.
The Oculas Groups’ Ovei (Oh-vee) is a living room in a pod. A very stylish, air conditioned and ridiculously expensive pod.

It’s official: the guys at Sony Insider are flippin’ Nostradamuses. Nostradamusi. Nostradami.

Someday we’ll have solar cells on our clothes, so we can charge our gadgets while we’re out in the sun. The cells would have to charge real quick though, because I work at home. Either that or get a job that requires me to work outside.
Do you think that there are a lot of people who are just dying to sit inside a speaker? The makers of the Sonic Chair think so. It has 2-way speakers, a subwoofer, and the chair itself is a “sound membrane”.
