R2-D2 Lunch Kit

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2011

Most adults don’t really carry lunchboxes, but as lunchboxes get cooler, you will see more of them packing a lunch since we are all geeks at heart. This R2-D2 lunch kit is pretty cool. Adults and kids alike will want to carry this one around.

It’s only $14.99 and measures 5¾” W x 5½” D x 11¼” H and even has integrated sounds and LED light effects. That beats the Lunchbox I had as a kid. The noise that this one makes will likely get your kid in trouble.

Hauppauge Digital Broadway Box

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Reuben Drake on June 28th, 2011

The Hauppauge Digital Broadway Box is not what it sounds like. This isn’t a box full of musicals and Broadway shows. It’s a new way to watch live TV on your iPhone and iPad (as well as other mobile devices). It’s basically a small stand alone box that connects to any TV signal and streams live TV wirelessly to mobile devices like your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Live TV can be watched over your home Wi-Fi network or it can be streamed over the Internet anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection. It will arrive in July or early August for $199.

Rolobox, for kids more interested in the box, than the toy inside

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

Buy a kid a cool toy and chances are he/she will end up spending more time playing with the box it came in than the actual toy itself. Kids just have more fun when they can use their imagination. Well, the Rolobox is for just this phenomenon.

This little kit is about $14 and has four wheels and a pull string. The wheels and string attach to the box and turn it into a pull toy kids can play with. It’s a great idea, but it’s still not a plain blank box. Nothing is as fun as that.

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

Bluedot has introduced its first YouTube Box onto the Japanese market. It’s called the YouTube XL BTC-10 and the box provides direct access to YouTube content without connecting to a PC to your TV. The Bluedot YouTube XL BTC-10 YouTube Box does of course require an internet connection to operate.

The Bluedot YouTube XL BTC-10 connects to your TV via an HDMI port. So when can we expect it to arrive? The company will release the YouTube XL BTC-10 in March for 13,000 Yen (or about $155).

Yonsei WebTube HD Box stops by the FCC

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2010

The WebTube HD box from Yonsei might be a good budget version of a Roku box, but you can expect limited abilities. The WebTube HD has just visited the FCC where it was poked and prodded. The device can be connected to the Internet and gives users an interface for viewing YouTube videos, browsing the web and more.

The WebTube HD platform also has its own TV App Market, so you can download apps for added functionality. Do you still want it, even with it’s lack of Hulu or Netflix support? Probably not.

Logitech’s Google TV box gets official: $300, camera, mobile apps

Posted in Logitech by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2010

Logitech has confirmed the first Google TV device, the Revue. It will focus on the Android-based platform’s hybrid TV/web searching and TV apps but should also have strong support for Logitech’s other devices. It can act as a Harmony gateway, with new iOS and Android apps. It also supports the same Unifying receiver technology that is found in its mice and keyboards, so it supports existing peripherals as well as the pre-supplied keyboard and optional diNovo mini-based Mini Controller.

A Media Player app on the Revue will get media from computers on the local network through DLNA. And of course it can output up to 1080p over HDMI and has two USB ports for accessories like the new TV Cam webcam for video chats over Logitech’s Vid. The device works with traditional remotes through IR blaster inputs and gets online using Ethernet or 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Logitech Revue Google TV box hits the FCC

Posted in Logitech by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

You may have to wait until this Fall, but Logitech’s Google TV box has been showing itself off to the FCC. Not much new to report on this one, but if you hit the link you can get a look at the device’s guts.

As reported previously, Google TV will bring regular TV and web video to your TV, as well as Android apps. Now that the FCC has spied this device, all we have to do is wait.

MacBook Air clone includes a clone box

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on February 5th, 2010

This MacBook Air clone goes the extra mile by including a clone of the MacBooks box as well, along with a manual and necessary drivers. Imagine when you open this package and find that what’s inside isn’t from Cupertino at all.

I wonder if this is enough to get Apple’s lawyers all hot and bothered. However, you have to give the cloner here some credit, it does have a user replaceable battery. It you want the package above, it will cost you $278. Possibly much more if you see this on Ebay and think it’s the real deal.

The Boxee Box also helps you get easy access to university courses, panel discussions, academic lectures, presentations and web-only videos.

Boxee users can also access music from sites like Pandora, last.fm, shoutcast, and We are Hunted and photos from sites like flickr, Picasa and the Facebook. Some other features include HDMI, Optical Digital Audio (S/PDIF), Composite, Ethernet Connector, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and an SD Card slot.

Boxee Box coming soon

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2009

Boxee Box coming soonBoxee is coming. And I don’t mean that kind from the original Battlestar Galactica. I mean the home theater PC software that makes watching streaming downloaded media on your TV easy. Mac Mini fans like it since it can be installed right on top of OS X. That’s because you need a computer in your living room to run it.

But it won’t be that way forever. Boxee just announced a deal with a hardware partner to release a Boxee Box for your living room sometime next year. So instead of buying a computer just for the Boxee, you’ll have a device designed specifically for your Boxee-related home theater use.

Beer-in-a-Box coming this fall

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 29th, 2009

Beer-in-a-Box coming this fallThe future of beer is in a box thanks to some inside-of-the-box thinking. The $20, 1.5-gallon boxes of beer are designed for beer drinkers who prefer their beer from the tap but also don’t mind if that tap is a box. Currently they are testing boxes of Miller Lite and Coors Lite in select cities and they plan to expand it nationwide this football season.

In case you were wondering, 1.5 gallons equals 16 bottles. So you’ll be paying $1.25 per bottle, which is more expensive than buying a 12-pack of bottles. Hey, you have to pay for innovation.

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2009

VuNow IPTV box gets CinemaNow movie streamingVerismo Networks recently added Roxio CinemaNow streaming media purchases for the VuNow IPTV box, further enhancing the usefulness of the device. The video-on-demand box can already show streaming content from local network storage or YouTube, but now adds access to Sonic Solutions’ 250 content providers.

The VuNow system is a set-top box that comes in both standard and HD versions along with a USB Wi-Fi dongle to stream content straight onto the VuNow. That’s not all though. Apart from CinemaNow content and YouTube, this setup will be able to connect to popular websites, internet TV and will play content stored on USB drives.

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxes

Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxesWe’re used to seeing free DVD or Blu-ray players with an HDTV purchase, but Mitsubishi is trying a new approach. Beginning July 16th, authorized retailers will give you a free Vudu box and $50 service credit with every Mitsubishi TV.

The box is only a $150 value, but then again Vudu is the only player out there offering 1080p HDX video rentals right now, plus it supports Pandora, Flickr, YouTube and local streaming, so bundling the TV with the box is an easy way for Mitsubishi to jump into the connected TV market without having to work very hard.

The black Wii has a black box

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2009

Black Wii has a black boxThe elusive black Wii has shown itself off a few times recently and with the August 1st launch date in Japan approaching, its back in the spotlight. Now it’s showing off it’s sexy packaging.

Sure, it’s the same old box, just done up in black, but it makes the console all the more alluring, with a hint of mystery and danger. Like that time good girl Sandy from Grease suddenly transforms and rocks John Travolta’s world all dressed in black like a bad girl. Sadly we still have no word on a release date here, but we hope it happens soon.

PlayerVenice-V38HD Dvix boxThe PlayerVenice-V38HD Dvix Box stands out from the crowd since it comes with a built-in DVD player, allowing you to rip content from both DVDs and CDs. Of course, you would only make legal backups of things that you actually own.
