Japanese researchers from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology recently announced that they have cloned one mouse a total of 581 times. They did this by making clones, then making clones out of its clones and so on for 25 generations.
While I’m personally holding out for the Archos GamePad, if you absolutely must have an Android 4 gaming device before the holidays, you might want to check 0ut this oddity. The Chinese made JXD 5110 bears more than a passing resemblance to the Sony PSP, but it’s all Android, all the time.
Nintendo’s lawyers just got more work thrown their way. Mole Kart is a Mario Kart knock-off for iPhone that you will probably never see via the App Store. It doesn’t look half bad for a rip-off, but then again all you really have to do is throw in some mushrooms, make it all colorful and shoot items from your Kart.
Sony’s PS Vita hasn’t even had its official worldwide launch yet, and a clone has already been developed and launched in China. Begun, these clone wars have. The first PS Vita knock-off is called the Yinlips YDPG18.
You’ve gotta hand it to schlock gadget merchants of China for their ability to completely laugh in the face of all intellectual property laws. Take, for example, this craptacular version of Angry Birds which you can now buy.
This BlackBerry popped up a few days ago on a Chinese web site, and it’s supposed to be the new BlackBerry 9980. I have to admit that the design is somewhat intriguing, but if it really looks like this, will it sell?
I have trouble understanding why anyone would want a fake 3D clone of themselves, but hey, who really understands the Japanese? One shop in Tokyo, Japan, has decided to offer realistic replicas of people to discerning customers.
I’ve seen a whole range of products from apparel to electronics to makeup of the counterfeit kind all bearing the markings of the Sleeping Giant that has already inevitably awakened.
I appreciate the original “Made in China” stuff that I’ve got though, because you can get some high-quality stuff from there, if you know where to look and if you know who to trust.
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.
Somedays, I just wish that Nintendo would throw in the towel on the hardware business and just make games for other platforms. Can you imagine being able to play all your favorite Mario games on your iPhone, for instance?
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.
We already featured one of Hiroshi Ishiguro’s Geminoid-F androids a while back. You’ll see how the people working on the robot are getting closer and closer to making something that’s indistinguishable from a real human.
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.
Let’s be honest here among friends. The only reason to buy knock off products is because we are too cheap to buy the real deal. You know what I mean guys, it’s like buying your girl that fake Coach purse with the “G” rather than the “C” thinking they won’t know the difference.
I can say with a high degree of certainty that this is not the new iPhone 4G.
Nope, in fact, this strange oval phone is actually called the “Leady Apple.” I assume that the bad Chinese translation was supposed to say “Lady Apple”, given it’s girlish figure.
