I can really appreciate how good designer watches look. I would never buy one though. Geeks don’t really wear watches today. This is perhaps the most awesome watch ever and it is called the Harry Windows Opus Eleven. It reminds me more than a little of Mickey Mouse though.
One of the things that I hate most about having to go shopping is having to make a list of what I need. I know that I will forget something between looking in the pantry and writing the stuff down. I also have bad handwriting and end up not being able to read my own list a lot of the time. If you are like me and want a easier way to make your shopping lists the cool SmartShopper may be just the ticket.
We see all sorts of watches that are expensive and really cool around these parts. The thing that they all have had in common is that they are for people that can see. Those with no eyesight or impaired eyesight can't use a normal watch to tell time.
One of the great things about having kids is that you can buy all these cool toys like the Spy Net Video Watch and say they are for your kids even if you are the one that wants the thing. Spy toys are interesting gadgets and this watch has an LCD screen with an integrated camera.
Thanko has some strange gear and gadgets that it sells and most of them connect to the USB port. The company has a new and very odd accessory for the masks that folks tend to wear on their face in Japan. The mask is white and looks like a cat's snout with whiskers and all.
With more gadgets wanting to get their juice via USB, and the contents of our hardware bags quickly outnumbering the AC sockets on offer, manufacturers are getting clever to ways they can extend what power ports are accessible at any one time. FlipIt! may have a silly exclamation point in its name, but it also has a reasonably compact way of doubling up a standard US AC socket, sandwiching its connection in-between the wall and a regular plug.
I'm not really focused on how my gadgets and the accessories that I use with them look nearly as much as I am focused on how well the stuff works. The best looking bag in the world isn’t worth anything if it doesn’t protect your stuff. iSkin has unveiled a new line of fashion bags that look to be well padded and offer up protection when you are on the go rather than just looking good.
A new multi-device charger has surfaced from a company called Joy that is dubbed the Touch-n-Go Multi-Device Charging system. The thing looks really strange with lots of little circular indents with three prongs sticking out.
François Vogel is a visual artist that hates 3D. And while the debate about 3D being the next step of entertainment is still a hotly-debated topic, the consensus that most people don't want to wear 3D glasses to watch 3D entertainment seems pretty straight forward: they don't want to wear them. Vogel doesn't want to wear them, either, and so he's created a gadget that gets around the glasses by actually syncing your blinks to a monitor. The device attaches to the sides of your eyes, and then makes you blink when necessary.
A new study has been published by a company called Insider Pages that was conducted by Harris Interactive. The study focused on how much time adults spend doing research on their doctor compared to the research they do on their latest gadget purchase. The results will come as no surprise to most gadget hounds.
