Most of the cheap Chinese game console knockoffs do just one thing – play old 8-bit NES or Famicom games. Some of them don’t even do that. Here’s one console clone that claims to do way more than those.
When it comes to weird gadgets and phones, Asia has a lock on the category. You can bet if there is a strange feature to be added, Asian phone makers will add it. For instance, the new Fujitsu and Folli Follie (a Chinese fashion retailer) tie-up that resulted in the F-022 mobile phone.
This Iron Man Mark I suit was built by a Chinese guy named Wang Xiao Kang, and he built it from scratch. That’s saying a lot because this suit looks pretty darn great. Wang says that he had no prior DIY experience, but from the look of his suit, it’s pretty much on the mark when it comes to faithfulness.
Remember the Chinese dude who built himself a 5-ton Megatron? Well, the man going by the nickname “Steel Legend” is back and he’s made a bunch more scrap metal Transformers, from Autobots to Decepticons. He sure love robots.
Now that you’ve got your shiny new iPad 2, how’d you like a miniature version of it. Oh yeah, you already have an iPod Touch, right? Well if you’re too cheap to buy actual Apple gadgets, you could always head over to China and pick up one of these mutants.
It might not be as polished as these Star Trek burial containers, but Hu Chuang’s tombstone is equally geeky:
Hu Chuang’s parents also kept his email address open so his loved ones can keep sending him messages, “because, who knows, maybe he can read them on the other side.”
If you can make it, China can copy it:
While other Japanese have been busy building another classic robot statue, and South Koreans are building a gigantic robot statue of their own, this orange Gundam copycat is being built in a theme park in Sichuan, China.
We featured this add-on way back in July, and now it’s finally reached American shores, thanks to Sprint. Now under the ZTE brand, the Peel will be available through Sprint via a $30 (USD) a month, 1GB data plan.
This ridiculous looking little boom box snaps onto the bottom of your iPod, letting it belt (or is it chirp) out some fat (or is it skinny) beats.
Homade’s Boom Dock connects to your iPod’s dock connector and has a little speakers inside of it.
I guess that China was feeling a little behind the curve from Japan and their wacky inventions, so they decided to come up with their own. What you’re looking at here is a vending machine that dispenses not candy bars or cans of soda, but live crabs.
Fresh off the streets of China comes another no-name tablet that looks curiously like Apple’s iPad.
From the sleek aluminum case, to the exact same 9.7-inch display found in the iPad, to the single round navigation button, this clone sure looks like the device it’s trying so hard to copy.
Annoyed at Apple’s stance about jailbroken iPhones? Then check out this new adapter that will transform your iPod Touch into an iPhone, and show them!
Yosion’s Apple Peel 520 claims to be able to let you use your iPod Touch as a phone.
I guess the guys in China felt they had to try and keep up with Japan and their gigantic robot creations, and built themselves an enormous Optimus Prime of their own.
Standing 32-feet tall, and residing just North of the Bird’s Nest at Beijing’s Olympic Park, the giant Transformer might not be as tall as giant Gundam, but you have to hand it to the Chinese for their ingenuity.
