Remember the oh-so-cool RGBy Desk I showed you a few weeks back? The desk uses color sensors and tons of RGB LEDs to change colors to match items placed on top of it. But it was a one-of-a-kind piece that would probably cost thousands of dollars even if you could buy one.
Looking for a cool way to add a splash of color to your desktop? These LED mouse pads offer up bright, colorful illumination.
Created by Flexiglow, the xRaider gaming mouse pad plug into your USB port and comes in red, green and blue varieties to suit your current mood.
When my original 2005 Xbox 360 finally succumbed to the dreaded Red Rings of Death, it ended up going on the scrap heap. This enterprising modder showed a bit more creativity than I could muster by turning his overheating Xbox lemons into a souped-up glass of PC lemonade.
Other than the big red LED backlit cooling fan sticking out of the side of the console, you wouldn’t know it’s a PC unless you turned it around and looked at the back.
Just like a regular Xbox 360, there wasn’t quite enough room to cram the power supply in the box, so it had to sit outside the console too.
With all the stuff crammed under its hood, one can only hope that it won’t be as much of a fire hazard as the cardboard box PC.
I thought that the Pac-Man hoodie would be the most outlandish article of clothing I’d write about this week, but leave it to me to always go just one better. So without further ado, I proudly present the LED Pimp Coat…
The “deluxe” color-changing coat is not only made of the finest polka-dotted faux fur money can buy, it’s loaded with over 400 colorful LEDs which let you change the outfit’s colors to suit your mood.
Having not been to Barcelona, Spain, this is the first time I’ve heard of this unusual high-rise building, covered with thousands of LED illumination panels.
At first glance, it’s hard to get over the ridiculously suggestive shape of the Torre Agbar (Agbar Tower), but it’s the cool light show that’s really the eye-catcher here.
Looking for a cool gift for the geek who has everything? I really dig this shiny new digital watch and its dramatic styling.
Concealed behind the mirrored face of the Reflection watch dwells a bright red LED display which only shows itself when illuminated.
Here’s an ingenius little invention for all you boozehounds out there. Imagine if you will, sitting at your neighborhood watering hole, when the bartender sees a little flashing light out of the corner of his eye and just knows it’s time to refill your cocktail.
That’s just what these coasters do.
This has gotta be the coolest Christmas tree I think I’ve ever seen. Pac-Man and his ghostly pals have been reproduced in this giant holiday light display.
The “tree” features a fully-animated version of the classic arcade game, rendered across thousands of colored LEDs.
From what I can tell (my Spanish isn’t that great), its currently on display in downtown Madrid at Nuevos Ministerios.
This amazing LED tabletop surface can sense the color of objects placed on top of it, then automatically change its own colors to match.
The RGBy desk uses small clusters of photo sensors and multicolored LEDs to work its color-changing magic.
Unless you’re as ancient as me, you might not remember the earliest LED watches from back in the 1970s. Now you can own a remake of one of the most clean, minimal LED timepieces from that era.
Designed by renowned space-age designer Roger Tallon, the classic Diode watch was originally released back in 1975 by legendary French watchmaker LIP.
Now that you’ve got one of those USB Whac-a-Mole games and a Mini Claw Machine in your office, why not round out your collection of mini carny games with this basketball dunking game?
The desktop game is a pint-sized replica of those B-Ball dunking games you might find at Chuck E.
This gauge connects to your computer to reveal critical information about your PC’s current operating conditions. Rather than modern digital readouts, the Gigabyte Visual USB Gauge uses a good, old fashioned analog gauge to relay the current state of your computer’s power supply.
Designed specifically for use with Gigabyte’s Odin GT power supplies, the gauge plugs into your computer’s USB port and can tell you about the power supply’s current operating temperature, wattage consumption and fan speed.
The cool modern watches from Black Dice let you check the time in style. The timepieces feature a modern, curved display consisting of 82 individual LED blocks, which animate in mesmerizing patterns before displaying the time.
The watches offer a water-resistant metal body and come with a nice leather band.
Originally created in 1979, and recently revamped for a new generation, this mysterious chrome device is actually a timepiece.
Rather than using hands or digits, the Audocron uses a series of beeps and flashing lights to indicate the current time.
This nifty gadget from Italy’s Rotaliana combines a bunch of useful capabilities in one convenient box. The Multibook offers a lamp, clock and a handy organizer for your electronic chargers, all under the same hood.
Until you turn on the Multibook, it looks a lot like an ordinary book.
The slick black case and bright, easy-to-read displays on these Slan LED watches really caught my eye.
There’s just something so refreshing about a digital watch that’s just clean and simple, unencumbered by extraneous information or newfangled display paradigms.
