The Bit-52s are the creation of Toronto’s James Cochrane, who’s programmed an array of mechanical and electronic contraptions to crank out music, sans human musicians. The “band” features everything from a solonoid-controlled guitar, keyboard and tambourine to a set of old scanners which help give the group its squeaky Kate Pierson-esque backing vocals.

The Tubbiedrone: Teletubbies Gone Horribly Wrong
Now, I have to start out by saying that I’ve always thought that Teletubbies were creepy looking in their “normal” state. But after I saw this circuit-bent mutant Teletubby from MegaToothpasteMammals, I know I’m going to have nightmares tonight.

Digizoid Zo Personal Subwoofer: Amp Up the Bass
While there a million ways to take your audio with you, most of them involve rather meek, tinny sound, thanks to the physical limitations of most earbuds and small speaker tech. The guys at digiZoid hope to overcome that problem with their newly-announced zo personal subwoofer system.

Flushing Noise Generator Still Doesn’T Cover Up the Smell
Apparently in Japan, the toilets in many public female restrooms are equipped with an Otohime (“Sound Princess”). Otohimes produce a flushing sound when activated, presumably to mask lady farts or umm… other sounds that may be produced while on the throne.

Chicbuds Headphones Are Brightly Colored Fo Realz
My wife uses her iPhone for listening to music a lot. She uses these cheap pink earphones when she listens that sound worse than the stock Apple earphones. The other day I got a really nice set of earphones for her from V-Moda that sound great.

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds
OrigAudio (as in “origami + audio”) speakers are perfect for trips to the beach, or for whenever you just want to share music without much hassle. Let’s face it, a couple of 3.15″ 1-watt speakers won’t satisfy audiophiles and they’re definitely not good enough for parties, but the fact that they’re foldable and don’t need a power source – not a single battery or USB cable needed – means that they’re perfectly portable.
