We featured Owerko’s retro-nostalgic Boombox Project previously; he’s teamed up with Gelaskins to produce a custom Boombox skin, available for most iPods and MacBooks.
A 1.9″ QVGA display and 2 MP camera aren’t anything special for a cellphone, but the Meridiist’s $5k pricetag comes from its crocodile leather back and hand-brushed stainless steel keypad.
Microsoft’s Zune mp3 player now has a glossy, 120GB version out on Amazon — also, check out the new blue 8GB version, which comes with wireless buying and games.
Coming this November: Gamepark’s GP2X Wiz is a Linux-based handheld game console (read: emulator); we’re digging the OLED touchscreen and 533 MHz 3D accelerator.
Above is a fantastic skateboarding video shot with a Red One Camera; it’s cheaper than professional cameras but will still set you back $17.5k for the body alone.
Logitech’s MX 1100 mouse may not have the cachet of its Revolution series, but its features are top notch: fast scrolling, DPI switching and great ergonomics make this a must-buy.
Jake von Slatt is one of the better-known steampunk artists; above, Wired interviews him. Datamancer has actually taken von Slatt’s idea and sells Mac and PC steampunk keyboards.
OSIM’s uSpace is a high-tech massage chair with mood-lighting and music synchronized to your sleep states. It’s for relaxing, but we’d like to see one just for gamers.
LG has unveiled the KC910 Renoir, a sleek successor to its Viewty cellphone. It sports a spacious 3″ touchscreen, 8 megapixel camera and 3G HSDPA; it’ll be available 10/08.
The venerable boombox sticks around another year, this time with Sharp’s 250-watt CD-DK890N and CD-DK891N systems. They come with a 5-disc changer and iPod Dock.
Recently announced at CEDIA, the Sony JS is a value-priced all-in-one PC; it’s got a 20.1″ XBRITE screen and 3.0 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU; optional: BD-ROM and up to 4 GB RAM.
Epson’s Powerlite Home Cinema 6100 is a budget home theater solution; it’s the first 1080p projector to drop below $2,000. Stats: 18,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio; 200 watt E-TORL lamp.
Overly complex but totally awesome looking, Stimuli 3.0 is a concept lamp by Chris Natt. It adjusts its brightness based on ambient lightning, using “petals” and a three-axis gearbox.
The Sony RT is a behemoth all-in-one PC, with a 25.5″ screen, quad-core Q9400 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB RAID storage. Hell, it even has a built-in subwoofer.
It’s no coincidence that Becker’s 4.3″ Crocodile GPS unit (avail. 10/08) has a skin that resembles tire treads; it’s targeted towards motorcycle riders with a water resistant rubber coat.
Porsche Design’s stylish Eton P’9210 Clock Radio has three speakers, a subwoofer, iPod dock and satellite radio hookup. Other than the odd remote, the minimalist design works.
Eubiq’s Power Strips allow you to plug into any point along the strip using a special adapter, giving you freedom where you put your electronics. They’re low-profile and sleek, too.
Shure is well known for the quality of its sound isolating earbuds; we’re glad that they’re releasing a value-priced model, the SE102MPA; $20 more gets you a phone adapter.
Just released: Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 laptop throws its hat into the netbook market. $349 gets you an Intel Atom N270, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB SSD, 802.11g card and Ubuntu. $449 for XP.
Nokia’s E66 NAM is now available at Nokia flagship stores (and for preorder online). The cellphone is wrapped in stainless steel and gets quad band GSM + dual band WCDMA.
Portable DVD players aren’t new, but we’re digging the efficient form factor of the LG DP889. It not only plays DVDs but can be propped up on its side as a digital photo frame.
This Space Invaders-themed keyboard has uber geek written all over it; actually called ElectroJoe’s Bendiboard, they’re flexible, water resistant and come in black or white.
We have to admit the Climbatron is utterly pointless (and likely annoying), but it is pretty cool. Using suction cups, it climbs on vertical surfaces–great for driving friends up the wall.
Ashley Payne’s Zune Bug is a modern take on the nightlight. The concept is actually a speaker that streams music from your Zune; it adjusts its volume based on ambient lighting.
Logitech’s Illuminated Keyboard has backlit laser-etched keys for working at night. Only 9.3 mm thin, it also has laptop style scissor-switch keys for crisp, low-travel typing.
It’s not a DSLR, but the Olympus SP-565 UZ’s anti-blur tech and impressive 20x wide-angle optical zoom make this perfect for “close-up” shots–the non-peeping kind, of course.
