iPod electric guitar
When Guitar Hero and Rockband aren’t enough to satisfy your poser urges to emulate rock stars, this guitar will fill some sort of void in your life. It’s a 3/4-scale electric guitar that connects to your iPod or other MP3 players, allowing you to play along to the music thanks to the built-in 4-inch amplifier/speaker.

The guitar has a solid basswood body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. A truss rod allows you to adjust string action for easier chording. It also has precision machine heads and a single-coil pickup, volume control knob, and a standard 1/4″ output so it can be plugged into a standard amplifier if you like. For $199.95 you get a guitar strap, digital tuner, cables, plectrum, and carrying case. Includes a 9-volt battery that supposedly gives you six hours of operation.

Digital tape measure mixes the old with the new

Digital tape measure
Just when you think everything that could go digital has already done so, another old standby gets a makeover. The tape measure has been the workman’s best friend for ages. It too has now gone digital. It looks like a standard retractable tape measure, but it includes an LCD display on the top that can display and store measurements down to 1/16 of an inch. It includes several different units for measurement and can take into account the length of the casing, when you are measuring in tight places.

When you pull the tape out it will automatically turn on and retracting it will turn it off. That way you don’t forget about it and find the device drained when you really need it. It’s only $25.
