Now that the iPod Touch packs its own speaker, iLuv’s battery powered iSP100 loses a bit of utility; however, it’s relatively portable and at 4W RMS (8W peak), not bad for the size and price.
Delayed once, Gavin O’Connor’s police drama Pride and Glory is making it to the big screen 10/24. We hope this is a winner, with Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Jon Voight in the cast.
ZIRH’s Warrior Collection Shower Gels are simply too awesome to pass up; who wouldn’t want to smell like Alexander the Great? Note: apparently, Caesar smelled like refreshing citrus.
Brunswick Billiards’ Manhattan Pool Table is designed for the billiard elite, with Ebony or Mother Of Pearl sights, 1″ slate and stainless steel legs. Available in both 9 ft and 8 ft. sizes.
GTA IV competitor Saints Row 2 is rockin’ a host of voice talents that we support, including LOST’s Daniel Dae Kim, Michael Dorn (Worf!) and the always awesome Neil Patrick Harris.
Revealed at BaselWorld 2008, Hamilton’s 44mm X-Copter is full of awesome goodies, including a Max Take-off Weight calculator, sapphire crystal cover and our fave: a mini helipad.
Mallet Mania is a simple golf/putting game which is perhaps why it’s so addictive; sharp graphics reminiscent of Q*Bert and innovative levels make this a great time waster at work.
David Wiener Ventures’ Art.Suono acts as a bridge between your iPod and sound system; the race-inspired system features an Engine Start button and shifter-like input signal switch.
Aprilia’s 2009 RSV4 is official, with a funky triple headlight cluster (the air intakes are below). The RSV4 will be in the $20k range with a 999cc V-four engine that makes 190bhp(ish).
We’re really digging these Big Bad Wolf Nike Dunks by YoaKustoms; they remind us of the Spitfires of WW2 with a sick grey-toned camo design and extra ears on the heel tab.
The amazing Metamorphosis is the work of Glenn Marshall, who used Processing.org, an open source animation and interaction language. It’s set to music by Scottish group Boards of Canada.
Pentax’s K2000 is a 10.2 MP entry-level DSLR for point-and-shoot upgraders. It has a small body and simplified controls, but still gets image stabilization and a quick burst mode.
Microsoft’s Zune may let you share songs, but this BRIX concept by Seokwon Hong proposes sharing multiple BRIXs to form an impromptu viewscreen; family plan, anyone?
A convertible version of Saab’s 9-X concept, the Air BioHybrid features a flat-folding canopy top; it’s powered by a 1.4L Saab BioPower engine that runs on 100 percent ethanol.
We’re having a hard time digesting just how awesome Tim G.’s hectic Lego Rebel Attack diorama is, from a damaged X-Wing trailing smoke to a cameo by Boba Fett; the full gallery is here.
Stanton’s DaScratch is an innovative controller for DJs that uses a touch interface; three modes (Slider, Circle and Button) allow you to get a lot done in a relatively small device.
Created by Texas A&M Viz Lab grad students, Goobees is like Braveheart meets Willy Wonka. Epic win: gumdrops impaled with candy canes, cued to music a-la Spartacus.
Sensing an imbalance in The Force after Friday’s Pirate invasion, Vintage Vantage has released the Strictly For My Ninjas tees for those who prefer nunchakus over cutlasses.
Goo is like Katamari in 2D with better graphics; although more a tech demo than a game, it’s pretty fun. It recently won Best Threaded Game at the Intel Game Demo Contest.
We really didn’t get Jamungo’s antisocial Crappy Cat until we saw his interactive Flash game. The 9″ vinyl yuppie cat sports a cardigan, an eyepatch, a can of beer and a six pack ring.
Heckler Design’s OneLessDesk is actually two desks in one; a lower deck can serve as a keyboard tray or secondary desk, but slides away under the upper deck when not in use.
Canon’s SD880 IS is an update to their SD870; with 10 MP it’s not quite as powerful as the SD990, but its larger 3″ LCD and lower price point ensure this will be a top seller for Canon.
Like Ruben’s Tube, these musical Tesla coils by Steve Ward and Jeff Larson are designed to be seen and heard. Above: listen to them play the Zelda theme song. Even crazier: Lightsabers.
Jonas Damon’s 2B Radio is a retro minimalist’s dream come true, with a matte black case and three vacuum tubes in place of transistors. It’ll hook up to your iPod or MP3 player, too.
Only available in the UK at the moment, Toshiba’s NB100 netbook is one of the nicer ones we’ve seen. Otherwise, it’s pretty run of the mill: 1.6 GHz Atom, 1 GB RAM and an 8.9″ screen.
Warning: you may waste an incessant amount of time on Blast Passage. This Flash freebie remixes Bomberman and Gauntlet; even multiplayer is old school: four players, one keyboard.
