Navigon’s latest 7200T is a portable GPS navigation unit, available this October. The major upgrade is to the software, which includes 3D views and free real-time traffic for life.
The Olympus 1050 SW ain’t built for looks, but this camera will serve you well: its rugged body can be dropped from 5 feet, dunked in 10 feet of water and will still function at -14 degrees F.
There are plenty of other iPod/iPhone docks, but the CVT i3101’s wall-mounted form factor scores major style points. Also cool: FM radio; alarm clock; reads USB drives and SD flash cards.

The Asus N10 netbook drops the “Eee” brand in an attempt to focus on its higher-end features. It features a 10.2″ screen, glossy case, fingerprint reader and HDMI out are included.
Our biggest complaint with the Wii’s white plastic controllers is how dirty they get over time; Joe D’s Vintage Wii Mod concept addresses this with a swank woodgrain on black color scheme.
Funky Flickr group The iPod Mirror collects photos of the world, as reflected on the backs of iPods. We know how smudgy they get, so props for all the buffing that went into these shots.
LG’s KC910 is more camera than phone; it’s giant 8 MP camera has Schneider Kreuznach lens and max ISO 1600. Also: quad-band GSM, 3.2″ touch screen and TV-out.
No, it’s not a Photoshop hack–these are actual USB-powered speakers. They’re mega sized (500x larger than real iPod earbuds) and mega geeky: just the way we like things.
The EXI 450ZL Pro Version is an electric mini heli with an Alpha 400 brushless motor and 1300 mAh Li-Po battery. It comes 95% assembled, meaning nearly instant 3D acrobatics.
Sony’s sexy S-Airplay is a wi-fi iPod dock that streams music to up to ten speakers. The dock also doubles as an AM/FM radio; it can simultaneously stream your iPod and radio to separate rooms.
Only you and your 15 ton buzz saw-wielding robot can prevent forest fires: this awesome concept by designer Jordan Guelde plays directly into countless mecha fanboy dreams.
Outofstock’s Eraser USB Stick is pure poetry: the 1 or 2 gig flash drive writes data, while the ABS plastic lid symbolizes the deletion of data. The stick itself is made of teak wood.
Microsoft’s Sidewinder X5 mouse is a cheaper, yet slightly improved version of the first Sidewinder. Changes: a smaller, more ergonomic shape and removal of the adjustable weights.
Thought not available in the US, the 3 Skypephone 2 is a worthy successor to last year’s model, with a 3.2 megapixel camera and HSDPA connection. The brushed aluminum ups the style ante, too.
Although the Sony Ericsson TM506 isn’t bad looking, it ‘s an otherwise unremarkable phone except for one major feature: it’s the first to offer 3G speeds for T-Mobile customers.
Getting the most out of Pure Digital’s Evoke Flow Radio will require that you live somewhere with DAB+ access (i.e., Europe), but we like that it streams music from internet radio stations.

Ricoh’s latest set of R10 cameras updates their venerable R8 line with 10 megapixels. We actually like the retro 80s aesthetic and colors; it’s nostalgic yet still tastefully modern.
You can’t get much cooler than these Swany g.cell snowboard gloves, which feature a built-in bluetooth module, speaker and mic. In short, you can take phone calls directly from your hands.
