Joe Blow’s Raygunz – art with geek appeal

If you have a thing for the classic Sci-Fi references, these handmade raygunz would be great to have sitting on your desk. Granted they probably won't hurt anyone, that is unless you throw it at their head, but they're still cool.

The Alba Make Art Clocks may get your artwork sold

If you're just itching to get your art out there and on some kind of a product, these little Alba Make Art Clocks are a nice chance. Plus for those without artistic ability you can pick up unique looking clocks without having any artistic skill.

Designer Jean Louis Frechin showed off these "chronopictographic" digital photo frames at the recent International Milan furniture show.  Called Wapix YJMM, the pair are connected by a short-range wireless link.  Transient images are passed between the two displays, with the distance between each unit altering the speed at which it travels.

Samsung and Armani partner up for new LCD Television – for the brand-whore in you

The screen stats are as follows: they are 1080p LCD panels, they come in 46 or 52 inch sizes, and they have a 100MHz refresh rate, HDMI ports, and a color changing logo on the TV. They also come with two remotes, a small pebble-shaped one that does the basics of changing channels and upping the volume, the second is a larger backlit one that controls everything, hence-forth referred to as the Uber-mote.
