The real beauty of portable game systems is that they’re, well, portable. They fit comfortably into a pocket so that you can haul ’em around and play whenever you have a spare moment. Now, the PSP may look slick in all its iterations, but it’s never been the most pocket-friendly apparatus.
In a breakthrough that will undoubtedly lead to more expensive LCD TV models that people like me can only dream and write about, electronics giant Sharp has developed a 5-primary-color LCD display that will supposedly lead to more lifelike images.
Remember the old Nintendo Game & Watch LCD games from back in the 1980s? These early handheld video games have always had a bit of a cult following, despite their primitive, repetitive graphics, and drab monochromatic screens with cheesy color overlays.
The Humminbird RF35 uses GPS technology to allow its user to “see” where the fishes are in an easy to read, Game and Watch-style wrist mounted LCD display. Its remote sonar sensor can detect fishes within a 75-foot radius up to a depth of 120 feet.
Taiwan-based Ultmost Technology makes all sorts of gadgets, from talking tire gauges to automatic Muslim prayer watches. But they also have A/V equipment, like the Fuss LC-4212 B 42″ LCD TV.

Got $200 bucks to spend on a really cool keyboard? You could pick up one of those Luxeed rainbow LED keyboards, but that’s would be so 2008 of you. If you really want to be the cool kid on the block, you need one of these new Logitech G19 keyboards, which features a built-in color LCD screen and LED backlighting.
When you think classic video games, two names come to mind PacBoy and Space Intruder, right? No? Well even if those aren’t the games you remember from your childhood, it’s the best you’re gonna do if you pick up these cheap-o handhelds on sale over in the UK.
So now that you’ve got your brand new super-deluxe widescreen flat screen television, isn’t it time for an upgrade? If you’re like me, you know the minute you buy anything that runs on electricity, you’re cursed with its immediate obsolescence.
Here’s something that the LXG would greatly appreciate: hardware modder/antique & scuttlefish lover/ potential Cthulhu worshipper Paradox has created what he calls a “Neo-Victorian keyboard”; he also modded a widescreen monitor to go along with it.
