How About Some Musical Fruit?
Getting plenty of fruit each day is an important part of a well-balanced diet. So why shouldn’t your iPod take part in the same healthy lifestyle as you? Thanks to these fruit speakers, your media player can at least look like it’s eating well.

Greenpix: Massive LED Wall Powered by the Sun

Greenpix: Massive LED Wall Powered by the Sun
This huge LED screen displays mesmerizing patterns of light and video to passersby. But the really amazing thing about the enormous wall of light is that it’s completely self-sustaining. That is, the light panels themselves harness the energy of the sun during the day to power a colorful light show at night.

Cool Boy Game Console: Call the Copyright Cops

Cool Boy Game Console: Call the Copyright Cops
The latest gadget to crawl out from the seamy underbelly of the Chinese gaming underground. Not to be confused with the GameBoy, the Cool Boy is a portable game system that plays a variety of old school 8-bit and 16-bit console titles.

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?
Just the other day, I showed you guys a really crummy PS3 knock-off, but I think this videogaming oddity surely trumps that one. This strange little console can’t decide whether it wants to be an Xbox, a PlayStation 2, 3, or something else altogether.

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3
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.

Ifone is One Phony iPhone

Ifone is One Phony iPhone
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But sometimes, a crummy copy is just a crummy copy. Take for example, this poor Taiwanese knock-off of the Apple iPhone. This thing makes no bones about its source of inspiration.

Here’s a fun way to play some of your favorite 16-bit console oldies whenever the whim strikes. This new portable plays a selection of games from the classic SEGA Genesis (aka Mega Drive) console.

Mobile Phone Offers NES Emulation, Mystery Windows Key

Mobile Phone Offers NES Emulation, Mystery Windows Key
Here’s a suspicious looking mobile phone from China that manages to infringe on at least a couple of prominent brands in one feature-packed device. When opened up, the ZTC 8898 mobile not only looks mimics of the looks of HTC’s QWERTY phones, it claims to “simulate” 8-bit NES games too.

Playstation, Xbox Faked in 8-Bits

Playstation, Xbox Faked in 8-Bits
While these consoles from China may look slightly like their authentic counterparts, just one look under the hood, and you’ll see just how phony they really are. China’s ShenZhen LinFeng Electronics has cranked out a series of console knock-offs, imitating the look of all three generations of the Sony Playstation, the original Microsoft Xbox and even the Sega Saturn.

Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum

Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum
I saw these ridiculous looking speakers over on 7Gadgets and just had to give them a mention. The perfect accompaniment to your sequined Christmas sweater, these goofy speakers let you listen to your favorite holiday tunes emanating from the O-shaped mouth of of good old Saint Nick.

Concrete Speakers From 25togo: Heavy Duty Sound
These substantial bookshelf speakers from Taiwan’s 25togo feature cabinets made from concrete. The cement and glass construction of the In Visible City speakers is said to project a powerful, clean sound profile. The compact speakers feature angled corners, which afford them flexibility in placement.

Worst. Lamp. Ever.

Worst. Lamp. Ever.
On paper, the idea of a little desktop doggie lamp might be cute, but somewhere along the line it just all went so horribly awry. There’s just absolutely nothing that’s right about this rechargeable LED dog lamp.

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50
I’ll start out by saying this. Steve Jobs and company will no longer like you if you buy one of these. But for those of you who are too stingy to drop $149 to $199 on a real iPod Nano, here’s a cheap Chinese knock-off that’s a dead ringer for Apple’s chunky little 3rd-generation media player.

Chillichilly Clock Will have You Seeing Double

Chillichilly Clock Will have You Seeing Double
The numbers on this unique wall clock from Hong Kong’s ChilliChilly may look confusing when the hands aren’t over them, but as each hand reaches a number, colored discs reveal the proper time. The appropriately named Seeing Double clock uses Red and a green colored filters at the end of the hour and minute hands reveal the true time.

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like
Leave it to the cheap Chinese knock-off makers to produce this red headed stepchild of an iPod and a mobile phone. While it sort of looks like an iPod Classic, it slides open to reveal a phone.

Mp3, Mp4, Mp5 – Whatever It Takes

Mp3, Mp4, Mp5 – Whatever It Takes
I was checking out the bargain basement tech over on DealExtreme this morning, and came across this oddity. According to the manufacturer, what we’ve got here is an MP5, yes M-P-FIVE player. As far as I know, there is no official MP5 file format.
