We’re used to car concepts being over the top, but this laser-projected globe for the Mini Crossover takes the cake: it’s basically a 3D navi system with a touchscreen interface.

Microsoft Arc Mouse

Microsoft Arc Mouse

Although we’re not sold on its ergonomics, Microsoft’s Arc Mouse definitely turns heads with its folding clamshell design. Along with a tiny USB transceiver, it’s ideal for laptop users.

Altec Lansing’s iPod-friendly inMotion Speakers both look and sound great: the moondance GLOW is a dual-alarm clock radio, while inMotion MAX delivers crisp, full-spectrum sound.

Ion Audio iCue Mixer

Ion Audio iCue Mixer

Ion Audio’s iCue Mixer is a compact, entry level system for those wanting to mix MP3s from their computer. We do recommend a 3.5mm Y-splitter for your headphones, however.

Sony Vaio AW Laptop

The Sony Vaio AW laptop is ideal for photographers, with an 18.4″ Bravia-based LCD screen. It’ll also get a GeForce 9600M GT, dual 250GB or 64GB SSD drives and a Blu-ray burner.

Sony a900 Camera

Sony a900 Camera

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A900’s chief bragging point is a 24.6MP 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor. However, CNET reports that noise seems to be above average at high ISOs.

MS BlueTrack Mouses

Microsoft’s Explorer Mouse features BlueTrack, a blue laser that works on previously unmousable surfaces such as carpet and marble. It’s also available in a smaller Mini version.

Esquire E-Ink Cover

Esquire E-Ink Cover

It’s just a bit cheesy and reminds us of a flashing banner ad, but the E-Ink cover on Esquire’s 25th anniversary issue is a technological milestone. Click here to see it taken apart.

Touchscreen Remote

Touchscreen Remote

Like their other remote, the Universal MX-6000 is only available to installers; too bad, because this bad boy has a 4.3″ touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi and runs on a 533 MHz ARM CPU.

HP EliteBook 6930P

HP EliteBook 6930P

HP’s 14.1″ EliteBook 6930P runs an astounding 24 hours on an optional high capacity battery. Similarly styled to their flagship 8730W, you’ll want an SSD hard drive to maximize time.

Mitsubishi 65″ LaserVue TV

Mitsubishi 65″ LaserVue TV

Although we’d prefer an LCD, Mitsubishi’s massive 65″ LaserVue TV still has us drooling. The rear projection unit does 1080p but only uses half the power of a plasma or LCD TV.

Boombox Gelaskin

Boombox Gelaskin

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.

TAG Heuer Meridiist

TAG Heuer Meridiist

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.

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 MX 1100 Mouse

Logitech MX 1100 Mouse

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.

Steampunk Keyboards
