IHM6 Speaker Pouch puts your iPod on display

IHM6 Speaker Pouch puts your iPod on display

Portable speakers are a dime a dozen anymore, but this new design also has a protective pouch attached to it to set it apart from the competition. That pouch will not only keep your iPod safe, but also allows for you to watch movies on it still.

I like many others love my PSP and it turns out that Maxx Digital has a similar fondness for the portable gaming device. Actually, they would just like to borrow a few of the design qualities.

ASUS Eee PC 901 Linux Edition Review

ASUS Eee PC 901 Linux Edition Review

If the ASUS Eee 900 basically amounted to a larger-screened version of the 7-inch original, then the Eee 901 marks its graduation into a distinct model.  Packing Intel's latest 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, in place of the 900's Celeron 900MHz, ASUS could reasonably have left the rest of the notebook the same and simply added a little to the price.  Thankfully they've subjected the 901 to a mild degree of fettling, tweaking case and controls and making for a markedly more attractive proposition.  ASUS sent over the Windows version of the 901; check out what exactly impressed us after the cut.

Wooden portable NES mod

Wooden portable NES mod

At first glance this looks like a Gameboy Micro clad in wood, but actually the scale is rather different.  The handiwork of The Longhorn Engineer, it's in fact a modified Nintendo-on-a-chip (NOAC) retro NES gaming console packed into a custom wooden case and given a 3.5-inch display and Li-ion batteries for some portable classic play.

Optoma DLP Pico-Projector to launch later in 2008

Optoma have announced their latest pico-projector, a cellphone-sized portable presentation device that is the first to use the DLP Pico chipset.  The company has been pretty coy with details - projected size, for instance, is quoted as "up to 100 times larger" than the 2 to 3-inch display on the source device - and aside from what we can glean from the images the connections it uses are similarly vague.

The Public Alert Weather Radio and Weather Station

The Public Alert Weather Radio and Weather Station

Working here at Slashgear means that I work from home and occasionally forget to glance outside. I don't even watch local TV, the entire town could be swooped up into a tornado and I would never even know it. With my tendency to wear headphones all the time it would take a power outage for me to think to look up from my computer.

Notebook desk features built-in fan and speakers

Some of us have or have had that laptop that is way too hot to just place on your lap. Either you feel like you're in a sauna or it gets so burning hot it ends up scalding your lap. Even my MacBook doesn't get super hot, but after a little while it gets to be a bit obnoxious.

Anyone who enjoys a lot of Asian artwork might enjoy these portable speakers which feature a design that is traditional Asian style mixed with a bit of pop-art. Also if you aren't a fan of your speakers floating around in your bag without any protection, this hardshell zipper pouch might be better for those that are a little less graceful.
