Okami replacement covers shipping with a bonus

A little while back the good folks a Capcom found themselves in a tight spot. It seems that someone used a picture which was watermarked by IGN for the cover of Okami for the Wii. Talk about embarrassing. They decided to make up for it by offering up free replacement cover art, which is promised to be watermark-free. So the question now is where the heck those covers are.

The Digital Door Viewer replaces peepholes

For those that can't just peak out the front door to find out who is out there without getting caught, this little gadget might come in handy.  It can spy who is outside by kicking on through a motion sensor and from somewhere else in your home you can find out if it's someone you actually want to see.

The DIY Turn Signal Biking Jacket

The DIY Turn Signal Biking Jacket

If you'd like to save money on gas and ride around on a bicycle instead of driving to work everyday, then this shirt tutorial might make you feel a bit more safe. Although biking saves money, all the traffic and people in a rush can be dangerous and this sweater lets drivers know which direction you are going

I have to admit, I moved to a small city and the traffic conditions tend to be a bit congested and on the hazardous side. Which means, I really don't feel like going out on a bike into a bunch of traffic. The tutorial on Instructables teaches you how to put some LED lights into your sweater, that also includes a brief video.

The way to turn on the signals are the buttons which are mounted on the inside of the wrists. You have to hit the button to turn them on as well as off and she suggests turning them both on for any night riding you might do.

Mio Knight Rider GPS with authentic KITT voice!

Believe me when I say I've never been tempted by a novelty GPS voice until now.  Mio are set to release a Knight Rider-themed sat-nav system that features the authentic voice of KITT.  That's right, not a naff impersonation, but actual voice prompts and comments from actor William Daniels.  It's fun from the first time you hit the power switch, too; KITT instantly asks you "Hello Michael, where do you want to go today?"

Panasonic ToughBook ruggedized UMPC to launch this week

Panasonic are readying their own Atom-based UMPC, although the device will bear little resemblance to the slick, compact handhelds we're used to.  Fitting into the company's ToughBook range, the as-yet unnamed ultraportable will be a touchscreen-based ruggedized tablet, using rubber covers and a protective casing to keep the UMPC functional in extreme conditions.
