This polyhedron of immeasurable proportions is a concept of a sound system that spits out sound to all 360 degrees. Now if that’s too much geometry for you, it’s a speaker that instead of outputting sound through one face or side, it outputs through all of them.
The one thing you would expect a unit like this to do is surround sound; sadly that is not the case. It won’t do surround sound, but it should sound the same in a given room regardless of where you place it.
And it works in an actual cassette player too! There are all the standard play functions and a head phone jack.
The music is stored on a separately sold SD card. It looks just like a real cassette tape too, with the two holes that you used to have to use a pencil in to wind the tape back in whenever it jammed.
Today's Video of the Day is the cause of much debate. The video shows a guy doing some cool stuff using the iPhone's accelerometer. The only problem is that until now, no one has been able to hack into the accelerometer and control it.
If any of you have played the LEGO Star Wars game, you probably know how much fun it is. Apparently George Lucas loves LEGOs so much that he's passing on the rights to a similar game based on our favorite archaeologist.

Remember back when the GameCube first came out, Mario made his debut on the console with Super Mario Sunshine? The entire game had you running around with the strangest weapon ever, a water canon. What was cool was that you could actually use the canon to propel yourself into the air like a jet pack. Apparently someone played that game just a bit too much.
USB drives are so commonplace that almost everyone carries one. I personally keep my Corsair Flash Voyager on my keychain (right next to my D20 holder). While it's not too hard on the eyes, some people might look for a drive that they can really show off.
How exciting can a giant inflatable ball be to a full-grown adult? Well if you've ever been to an outdoor concert, or even a rave you'll know that people love bouncing around inflatable balls. I'm really not sure why, but as soon as you see that thing coming at you, you feel like bouncing it off to the next person. Check out this cool new ball that takes that idea to the next step.

The competition between Guitar Hero III and Rock Band is really heating up as the launch dates inch closer. It looks like Red Octane is going all out trying to get big names to appear in Guitar Hero III. So far they have you battling Slash from G&R, and having Bret Michaels from Poison lending you vocals, but now another name has cropped up.
If you're in the market for a new digital camera, Casio has just introduced two new models that might be worth looking into, especially if you like small cameras and uploading YouTube videos.
Sony makes so many different products that it's hard to remember that your gaming console of choice, TV, phone and camera could be made by the same people. Sony has already integrated their Walkman and Cyber-shot lines with mobile phones, so it's not too far-fetched to think that they might one day make a Playstation phone, right?
