You’ve gotta hand it to those cheap Chinese knock-off manufacturers. At least they attempt to keep up with the latest gaming consoles when they crank out their crap. Case in point, this awful PS3 copy known as the PolyStation 3.
Now I’ve seen some cheap speakers in my days, but even the chintziest ones I’ve seen were at least made out of plastic. Not these. These ones are fabricated from thick paper stock.
Xenics Music Cube M speakers offer up some truly low-fidelity sound thanks to their flimsy cardboard construction.
For some reason, clock makers keep trying to bring back the magic of Nixie tubes without using any of the actual tubes. First, we had the LED “Nixie” Clock, and now we get this cheapo version that uses LCDs instead.
The Diana camera was a really cheap plastic camera that was made by the Great Wall Plastic Factory in Hong Kong in the 1960s. At the time, it was just that, a piece of junk. But over the years artists have discovered that the crummy little camera’s flaws ended up producing some really dreamy imagery.
You’ve got to hand it to these junkmeisters for their creativity. Check out these slightly familiar video game consoles from a schlock shop down in Mexico.
I’m not sure whether I like the X-Game 360 or the PowerStation 2 better, but these cheap packaging copies are clearly designed to fool some unsuspecting buyer into thinking they’re getting a great deal on a real console.
Creative today announced their latest MP3 player, the ZEN Stone. Aimed squarely between the eyes of Apple’s iPod Shuffle, the Stone is a small, flash-based player designed for the low-end of the market.
The 1GB Zen Stone will retail for the amazingly low price of just $39.99 (roughly half the price of the equivalent iPod.)
With all the recent buzz about how Blu-ray is leading HD DVD in the high definition “format war,” there’s a new wildcard that could shake things up.
While Sony certainly has a leg up on the race with millions of PlayStation 3 consoles out there, one big road block to broad adoption of either high definition disc format is the high cost of standalone players.
