Sega Toys robotic plant makes you feel less alone

Sega Toys robotic plant makes you feel less alone

Sometimes, sitting in front of the computer all day can feel pretty lonely. If only you had someone to talk to. Well, Sega Toys is trying to remedy that situation with a robotic plant called the Pekoppa.

Yes, you heard me right. A robotic plant. How can a plant be robotic, you must be wondering? Well, it nods at you. So, when you speak toward the plant, it nods back at you as though in agreement. That's it. That's all it does.

The HomeStar Spa turns your bathroom into a planetarium

The HomeStar Spa turns your bathroom into a planetarium

If you enjoy your baths but candlelight isn't quite the right mood for you, this cool little planetarium is definitely great for those that are in need of mood lighting. With this you can lay back as it casts pretty starry skies onto your walls.

It makes me wish I could sit still long enough to soak in the tub, however, I just tend to enjoy showers way more. For those that aren't as squirmy as I am, you can also flip the planetarium over and have it cast different colors and designs into the water itself.

The Homestar Spa from SEGA Toys is being sold for $70. It might also be cool for those with hot tubs to give different lighting than the boring colored bulbs that are usually featured in hot tubs.

Sega describes the iPod as “flawless” for gaming

Sega describes the iPod as “flawless” for gaming

Many people have an almost unnatural obsession with their iPod. I've got one and it's great, I just don't see what all of the fuss is about. Then again some people would make similar remarks about my DS, so I understand. Lately the tiny music player has grown beyond simply playing music and videos, venturing into the realm of gaming. Recently Sega described the iPod as “flawless” when it comes to gaming.

DIY Portable Sega Dreamcast mod

DIY Portable Sega Dreamcast mod

Once again I'm ashamed of my lack of Dremel skills.  The product of a feverish desire to take the Sega Dreamcast out on the move, this mod is a custom vacuum casing containing not only the guts of the console but a set of two 7.2V 3Ah R/C car batteries.  Rather intimidatingly, the game CD simply clips onto the spindle at the back with no door or cover to protect your soft, delicate fingers.

 

Sonic and Sega are back, portable and familiar

Sonic and Sega are back, portable and familiar

Yet another blast from the past is making its way into the new generation wrapped in a shiny new package (which looks like this one but cheaper). Nothing gets a kids attention quite like a portable game system. I doubt the AtGames Mega Drive Portable will be much of a contender to the DS and PSP but it’s sure to make some old schoolers happy.

Tec Toy offers up portable Sega Genesis again

Tec Toy offers up portable Sega Genesis again

Personally, I think Sega did a good job of this a good number of years ago with the GameGear, but if you weren’t lucky enough to latch onto one of those (I have 2, they’re great) then you can pick up one of Tec Toy’s offerings. Their system appears to offer a slightly improved button layout over the GameGear.

But, their system comes with 20 games pre-loaded, and that’s it, there’s no way to add more. So there’s that, however the Tec Toy version is by far more power efficient, using 3 AAA batteries compared to my GameGear’s 6 AA batteries that last, at best, a couple of hours.
