If you’re looking for a slick coffee table, and foosball isn’t your thing, check out this cool piece of gaming furniture that’s loaded up with a really nice classic arcade system and actually looks really nice.
This stereo system from Japan’s Amadana may look like something out of the 1970s, but it’s actually quite contemporary under the hood.
Amadana’s DDA-134 compact stereo system has decidedly retro-looking walnut wood enclosures for the speakers, receiver and DVD player, but on the inside, the system is reasonably modern (although certainly not cutting edge).
Does your closet smell like old gym socks? Is Fido stinking up the place and making you sneeze? Does somebody like onions and runny French cheese? If this sounds like your house, perhaps you could us one of these.
Creative Japan today took the wraps off this cool portable speaker for the 2G iPod Shuffle. The compact speaker goes great with the brushed metal finish of Apple’s tiny media player.
Just dock your 2G Shuffle on the top of Creative’s new Travelsound i50, snap on the clear protective cover and you’re ready to go.
I’m always struck by the graceful simplicity of Phillipe Starck’s watch designs. His latest creations are as dramatic as anything else I’ve seen in his past collections. The highlight of these as-yet-unnamed watches is their unique see-through case design.
I recently came across watchmaker Vestal, who makes original designer watches with a decidedly modern spin. The artists of Vestal use music as their inspiration for their designs, and their music video filled website reinforces this sentiment.
There’s just something about anything with more than four legs crawling around that gives most people the willies. This centipede robot kit will have those folks heading for the hills.
The Gakken Mechamo centipede robot measures in at about a foot long, and runs on batteries.
I really dig the clean modern styling of this bedside alarm clock from DesignEon. The cool thing about it is that there’s a built-in light that casts a dramatic glow from beneath the clock.
The clock comes in two styles, one with green LEDs and a green acrylic case, and the other one comes with orange LEDs and a clear acrylic case.
This clock looks quite a bit like those retro Nixie tube clocks, but instead of old vacuum tubes, it uses modern LED technology to achieve a similar result.
B&W’s Tubes Clock features six independent segmented red LEDs encased in little smoked domes.
This is really not a good idea, given the world we live in today. But leave it to the wacky gadget makers in Japan to release it anyway.
The ridiculous President Briefcase is just a gag product, but if you happen to leave it ANYWHERE, you’re likely to stir up a bigger scare than the Aqua Teen Hunger Force prank did in Boston earlier this year.
Here’s a nice way to add a little splash of color to any room in your house.
These Lumin LED fixtures produce a bright color wash that’s perfect for adding drama to a powder room, or creating a mood in your bedroom or dining space.
This amazing work of artistry looks like your typical low-voltage desk lamp, except it’s been delicately placed inside a large glass shell.
Studio Italia Design’s dramatic Blow Table Lamp is really a sight to behold. The lighting fixture’s centerpiece is a small adjustable 12V lighting head encased inside a blown glass bubble.
This new series of watches offers everything that hikers, climbers and camping enthusiasts could ever want or need. Slated for release this September, the Suunto Core Watch handles the outdoors with ease.
The watches can track weather conditions in amazing detail, including a barometer with storm alerts, temperature down to 1° of accuracy, and even graph historical weather trends.
Technabob favorite TokyoFlash revealed their latest ultra modern digital watch this week. Previously available only in Japan, their Barcode Black watch features a dramatic black case with a solid black stainless steel band.
Four columns of bright blue LEDs dot the front to tell the time in Tokyoflash’s typically offbeat way.
Sure, there are plenty of clocks out there that can tell time in different time zones one or two at a time, but how about a clock that can simultaneously tell the time in NINE major cities across the globe?
