These gameboy boots certainly make a fashion statement. Something about how everything you love dies. Like Disco and Nintendo’s handheld, for instance. So why not combine the two in a space age Disco look and hit the dance floor?
These boots were designed by Helen Red Richards back in 2001 for a Nintendo campaign. Apparently the Japanese love them and wear them all the time. And why not? Nothing wrong with looking like a space cowboy. Plus, you’ll always have a pair of Gameboys handy for you and a friend.
Many of us have lots of digital content on our computers from digital home movies and photos to recorded TV shows. One of the good things Vista offered in its more expensive versions was Windows Media Center making it easy to record programs over-the-air. The catch for many of us is that watching movies and TV shows on a small computer screen is less than ideal.
This is where HP came in with its Internet connected HP MediaSmart TV that can view Internet programming with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. HP announced this week that it is the first company to release Microsoft’s Media Center Extender capability in an Internet-connected HDTV.
This pint sized $2,400 Ferrari FXX Exclusive means business. It’s a great way to encourage your kids to worship overpriced sportscars. It’s a pedal go-cart with some nice details like spoilers, 7 gears, 12-inch lightweight metal wheel rims, and perhaps the coolest feature: A digital dashboard computer for keeping an eye on your speed and lap times.
It uses pedal power so your kid will be safe assuming he isn’t on a Kool-Aid sugar rush, which is about the only way they’ll reach dangerous speeds. It will only cost you £1239 in real-life gas money.
Nokia’s 8800 arte Platinum Snow Fox Edition from Goldstriker is one sleek and sexy phone. It’s not for those who lead an average lifestyle. Just like it’s not for those who are a little light in the checkbook. The phone is enhanced with 40 individually set AAA grade ultra white synthetic diamonds. It will be released on May 1st of this year for £1095.
It impressed Goldstriker’s director Katherine Hughes enough to comment “I have been lucky over the last few years to be involved and witness so many different customizations of mobile phones but this handset seems to stand out from the rest. It is for sure the most stunning to date”. I’m not much for AAA grade ultra white synthetic diamonds myself, but like I said it is sexy and certainly makes a statement.
Why in the hell you would want to port around a PS3 I have no idea, same thing with the Wii really. But I guess we needed more accessories. Thanks to Clearvision’s new LCD attachment for the PS3 and China Vasion’s version for the Nintendo Wii, you can.
Both screens measure 7 inches and have integrated speakers along with a flip-top design that makes your console look like an oversized handheld. I can’t imagine playing any Wii game with the Wii version. You would have to stand about four feet away and good luck making out anything on that screen. If you wanted to use your Wii as a laptop I guess it would be cool.
This right here is the result of a piano and a guitar finding themselves drunk in each other’s arms and later doing the nasty. You play it by tapping the 24 strings on the 24 frets. It’s actually the brainchild of math professor Jorn Starret who invented the thing as the StarrBoard.
Now it’s being produced by Marcodi Musical Instruments in Maryland, for the steep price of $5,995 depending what kind of finish you want on it. At that price it’s not exactly going to take the world by storm. I mean, c’mon, if you take the strings off, it’s little more then a fancy ironing board. I have to give it some credit though, it does have an interesting and at times unique sound and it seems like you could do quite alot with it musically. Check out a video below.

This shiny and pretty gold phone is a modified Nokia N95 that’s been decked out in a Buddhist theme. It looks both enlightened and at peace with the universe. This is Buddha bling if I’ve ever seen it. (I don’t believe I have.) It’s got a Buddha on the back, and fancy imagery all over. It’s onboard custom wallpapers and ringtones complete the theme.
It’s pretty awesome looking and if you’re Buddhist, even more awesome I would think. Unfortunately, it’s only in China and not currently available to westerners. Pretty neat. It just goes to show you that cell phones don’t have to be boring and void of personality.
Target sure knows how to market themselves. Warner Brothers does too. The proof is in these awesome gift cards. Target’s Wii cards looked really cool, sure. But these Speed Racer themed cards feature a USB flash drive which makes them useful too. They include an integrated inch-long USB cable that’s flush in the card and is released via a mechanical switch on the bottom edge. The cards only hold about 62.8 MB, but the upside is that 51.6 MB of that is packed with awesome Speed Racer promotional materials. Stuff like a PDF coloring book featuring the Mach 5 and other vehicles, coupons for Speed Racer toys, wallpaper, videos and even a cheat code for the Wii Speed Racer game.
The cards are obviously a team-up between Target and Warner Brothers, to promote the new Speed Racer movie. It’s a pretty smart idea. I’m not sure if you are required to actually put any money on them or not.
If you’re in the market for an awesome watch that doesn’t cost $1,000, then the NEO 8 watch certainly fits the bill. It’s currently priced at approximately $210, and is available in green or orange segments on a black background complete with a matching rubber strap.
The first two columns will tell you the hours, while the minutes are on the last two columns. It’s got a nice understated retro look, with grest lines. The three buttons on the side add a nice touch. As with many of these new watches, it might take some getting used to, telling the time by using blocks, but your wrist will be looking good.
