Mustek PF-i700 iPod Photo Frame serves two purposes

This digital photo frame can do two things at once, on one hand, it can act as a normal digital photo frame pulling its images from a user-supplied SD, xD, MMC, MemoryStick or MemoryStick Pro cards. But on the other, it has an iPod dock built into the back side and speakers as well that allow you to display your photos from your iPod as well as play music from it.

Check out this nifty little attachment from Loreo, you can get it for your Canon EOS and FD models, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax K mount, and Minolta MD and AF models and it allows you to take 3D photos. Basically it splits the image from each side and allows the camera to capture both, the only downside is, it slows the f-stop rating down to 11.

Cervellum Bike Digital Rearview Mirror

There aren’t many things a bike needs. Handle bars and wheels of course, maybe some beads or cards for the spokes if you want to bring back your childhood, possibly even a water bottle holder for those long rids. I camera/rearview mirror to show you what’s behind you, though, I don’t think is necessary.
