The things that kids do for entertainment these days is completely different from what we did as kids in my generation. We didn’t have a whole lot of handheld video games, although we had our imaginations and our Super NES and that was enough.
If you’re looking to fill out your dollhouse with geeky accoutrements, you might want to grab some of these Japanese toys, which are basically really tiny versions of the original Sony PlayStation line.
The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers.
While it’s not exactly clear from this early concept sketch, we’re hoping the chronolabel LED Transformer will transform from a watch to a stand-up clock.
Takara Tomy’s latest remote-control car is definitely unique. Not only does the Aero Spider Laser drive on walls or ceilings, it goes where you tell it to using a light gun.
The gun-shaped controller projects a bright red light beam (not sure it’s really a laser beam) where you want the car to go, and the car follows along.
This odd little gadget from Japan is perfect for placing subliminal messages in the background of epic rock albums. It’s also good for recreating disturbing and surreal scenes from Twin Peaks and The Shining.
Even though the product description over on Strapya World says “The things you can do with this machine have no limits!,”
If you feel the need to ugly up your Nintendo DSi, Takara Tomy has a creative way of managing it: magic film note stickers. What? Exactly.
These Memo Film notepad stickers actually aren’t a bad idea; there’s definitely plenty of reason to take notes while grinding away at one of the DS’s lengthy RPGs.
Now I’ve seen some wacky commercials out of Japan, but this one is one of the more off-the-wall ad campaigns I’ve seen in a long while.
These promotional clips for Takara Tomy’s new Xiao digital camera / printer hybrid drives the point home that the pocket size camera can output its own tiny photo prints – apparently by pooping them out.
