If you’re just too cheap to buy a Nintendo DSi or Sony PSP, here’s a handheld console that’s perfect for cheapskates.
The Conny PDC100 (Pocket Dream Console) is a portable 16-bit video game system that comes pre-loaded with 100 games.
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.
Bone Collection is a Taiwanese brand of gadget accessories and portable storage. It’s also what the Bone Collector does. It might also be one of those processes shown in CSI, the boring ones shortened to a couple of scenes accompanied by savvy and dark background music.
Why the heck would you drop $200 to $400 on a brand new console when you could get the same thing for a fraction of the price? Oh yeah, I neglected to mention that these alternate universe clones of the Xbox 360 and PS3 are crappy knock-offs from China – and that they only play 8-bit games.
All those millions of World of Warcraft players have to eat somewhere, and an enterprising Chinese businessman hopes that at least some of them will be paying him for the privilege of refueling at his new WoW-inspired restaurant.
Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don’t expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years.
Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.
This over-the-top wall clock has way more gears than it really needs – but it’ll definitely draw stares from anyone who tries to tell time with it.
Homeloo’s Jumbo Gear Clock has not 2, 3 or even 10 gears.
Think your iPod Touch is the coolest media player on the block? Not so fast, I say. While I thought for a while that I had discovered the worst MP3 player ever, I’m not so sure that my original selection still holds its crown.
I was digging around looking for something totally unrelated today, when I came across these nifty color-changing LED lamps from Lumenworks.
Rainbow Star lamps are minimal, modern lighting fixtures, which can be set to any of 7 different colors.
You won’t be able to type very fast on these keyboard-inspired ceramic cups, but you will be able to enjoy your favorite beverage in them.
Created by Taiwan’s MOD Design, Reset Cups are larger-than-life versions of the “Ctrl-Alt-Del” keys, typically used to reboot or login to your Windows PC.
These fun drink coasters may just look like an abstract dot pattern on the surface, but thanks to some cleverly placed perforations, you can actually make your own custom pixel creations out of them.
Each coaster is made up of 110 individual 1cm square “pixels” which are perfed in a way that lets you selectively remove blocks from each square.
Too cheap to buy a Nintendo Wii? Then look no further than the latest Wii knock-off to find its way from the streets of China.
The V-Sports console from Hong Kong electronics outfit Rumdes does its best to copy the motion controller concept of Wii Sports, but without any of those pesky Nintendo games.
These clever desk lamps get their inspiration from classic LEGO building blocks. Designed by Taiwan’s 25togo, these LED illuminated acrylic block lamps look just like a giant-size version of the popular plastic playthings.
The blocks have a snap-off top layer that’s designed to hold pens, pencils and other office items.
We seem to have a food theme going this morning. After you nosh on an appetizer of some Lego sushi, why not fill up your belly with some USB BBQ?
These goofy USB flash memory devices are disguised to look like crispy, delicious Chinese BBQ.
Nope, your eyes aren’t fooling you. This isn’t an actual iPhone. It’s the latest in a long line of iPhone knock-offs to find its way to our shores from China. The SciPhone isn’t the first iPhone clone out there, but it’s the first one I’ve seen that claims to run native Java applications.
