The Bit-52s Play Rock Lobster

The Bit-52s Play Rock Lobster
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…

Beltone Bluetooth Hearing Aid Helps Grandma on Her Cellphone

Beltone Bluetooth Hearing Aid Helps Grandma on Her Cellphone
My grandmother is pretty much deaf. You have to yell to get her to understand anything you are saying and if she calls to talk to you on the phone, you can count on her not understanding half the conversation. She’s also the sort that will let you talk for…

The Tubbiedrone: Teletubbies Gone Horribly Wrong

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

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. The portable box…

Flushing Noise Generator Still Doesn’T Cover Up the Smell

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. But not all public restrooms have Otohimes; what if…

David Hasselhoff’S Voice Now Available on Navtones

David Hasselhoff’S Voice Now Available on Navtones
MY EYES! OH GOD MY EYES! If I wasn’t a touch typist (or if I wasn’t all mean and stuff), that picture would have never been posted and your lunch would still be in your tummy where it was supposed to be. Every time you look at this picture, a…

Arcade Button Box Does Away With Pesky Screens and Joysticks

Arcade Button Box Does Away With Pesky Screens and Joysticks
Arcade fanatic Steve D’Angelo must have been longing for the sounds of his favorite classic arcade games when he decided to build himself this interactive sculpture.…

Cassette Tape Speaker: Do Not Try to Play This Tape

Cassette Tape Speaker: Do Not Try to Play This Tape
I’m not really sure why you’d want a speaker that looks like a cassette tape, but you can have one nonetheless.…

Chicbuds Headphones Are Brightly Colored Fo Realz

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. I handed them to…

Analog Tape Glove Lets Your Fingers Do the Playback

Analog Tape Glove Lets Your Fingers Do the Playback
Here’s an interesting idea for a spare-time electronics project this weekend. Take a glove, a bunch of  cassette tapes, the playback heads from a couple of old tape decks, an amplifier and some glue, and what do you get?…

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…

Audio-Technica Boogiebox: Because ‘Boombox’ was Already Taken

Audio-Technica Boogiebox: Because ‘Boombox’ was Already Taken
Seriously folks, where’s the boogie in this box? Audio-Technica’s idea of a portable speaker clocks in at 5.7 lbs and looks like a young, chubby amplifier. Its tough-looking case houses two 70 mm full range speakers with an installed capacity of 2W each. The BoogieBox has a 3.5 mm input…

Synthinetic: That Thing’S a Synthesizer?

Synthinetic: That Thing’S a Synthesizer?
At first glance at this ridiculous looking thing, I thought I was looking at some sort of wooden kids’ toy. But this oddball device is actually a synthesizer. Created by Alex Abreu & Ithai Benjamin, the Synthinetic is simply described as “The little kinetic noisy synthesizer of your dreams.” Assuming…

Star Wars Speakers Look Like Lamps for No Apparent Reason

Star Wars Speakers Look Like Lamps for No Apparent Reason
These strange cylinder-head Stormtrooper and Darth Vader are actually speakers, although they look more like lamps.  Either way, they’re butt-ugly. And no, they aren’t bobbleheads either. You can simply plug in your mp3 player and play your tunes. Unfortunately, they don’t have alarm clocks like these guys, but if you…

Bandai Mousou Mini Controllers Play Your Arcade Favorites, but Not Really

Bandai Mousou Mini Controllers Play Your Arcade Favorites, but Not Really
How’d you like to take some of your favorite classic arcade games and carry them around on your keychain? What if I told you that you couldn’t actually see what you were doing, but just hear it? Well that’s pretty much what you get with these new mini controllers. Bandai’s…

Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C: Bluetooth Wireless Pendant From Another Planet

Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C: Bluetooth Wireless Pendant From Another Planet
Let me start by saying this. I love TokyoFlash. These guys have brought some of the coolest digital watch designs I’ve ever seen to the world, and now they’re amping up their game with their first consumer electronics gadget, the Escape C. While this saucer-shaped device might look like something…
