The brilliant minds of industrial design firm Sonic Design came up with this design for an iPod-inspired bottle opener called the iDrink.
In keeping with Apple’s DRM (Drinker’s Rights Management) policies, the iDrink opener will only open bottles which have been purchased from the iDrink store (99 cents each).
Check out this video clip of some of the horrifically painful load times for the new Sonic the Hedgehog game, running on the Xbox 360.
Not only are the load times terrible, the shear quantity of load screens that occur to complete even a simple task are ridiculous.
It seems strange to me that a device called the “Coleco Sonic” would play classic SEGA games, but that’s just what this little portable system does.
Available for pre-order now from Target, the $49.99 Coleco Sonic handheld features 20 classic SEGA titles from the old 8-bit and Game Gear era, including:
Sonic Drift 2
Sonic Triple Trouble
Alex Kidd in High Tech World
Alex Kidd in Miracle World
Ecco II: The Tides of Time
Fantasy Zone: The Maze
Kung Fu Kid
With the Coleco/SEGA branding weirdness going on, I find it especially ironic that the most comprehensive details can be found in the AtariAge forums.
SEGA has announce a Fall 2006 release date for their new compilation, the SEGA Genesis Collection. The title will be released for Sony’s Playstation 2 and Playstation Portable systems.
The disc will include 30 titles from the Genesis system including classics such as Altered Beast, Sonic The Hedgehog, Shinobi III, Phantasy Star and Golden Axe.
In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the spiky fella, Sega has announced the release of four Sonic the Hedgehog titles this year:

A New Sonic Adventure (title TBD)
