Atom PC in a toy Ferrari

Posted in PCs by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2009

Atom PC in a toy Ferrari Yesterday we saw a PC in a vase at Computex, today it’s an Atom-based net-top in a Ferrari. There isn’t much info about it. We simply know that it has the guts of a netbook and appears to be sticking it’s tongue out in the form of a CD tray.

The body is custom-molded as well as the optical drive tray. I proclaim thee a thing of awesomeness. Other things we would like to see PCs crammed inside? Luke Skywalker’s landspeeder, Barbie’s Dream car and the Batmobile, just to name a few.

Wolverine cable holderNormally Wolverine’s claws will shred anything that they come into contact with. Luckily the adamantium skeleton in this Wolverine Mighty Muggs figure isn’t so strong.

This was once a simple Wolverine figure, but some outside of the box thinking has turned Logan into an effective iPod cable manager. Proof that simple toys can sometimes help keep your gadgets tidy on your desk. It’s only $15 and probably has some other uses as well.

Underground Time Capsule comes too late for my childhood

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2009

Underground Time Capsule comes too late for my childhoodKids are like dogs. They make messes, they dig stuff, they bury stuff…Some slobber all over themselves. They love to bury things and dig them up like 20 years later. Check out this awesome toy that I never had as a kid. The Underground Time Capsule.

It’s designed to go underground and hide precious objects for future generations(Or yourself) to find. You know, Baseball cards, bottle caps, a porn mag or two. What makes this so interesting is that it makes the process easier for you with a screw-on rock at the top, allowing you to add new items without digging it up again.

Mattel trains young Jedis with Mindflex

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009


If you’ve ever dreamed of being a Jedi and having the ability to move objects with your mind, your dreams are about to come true. Mindflex is the new mental acuity game from Mattel, arriving this fall. It may not let you lift an X-Wing out of a Dagobah swamp, but you will be able to move a ball with the power of your mind.

A lightweight headset with sensors measures your brainwave activity. When you focus your concentration, a small foam ball will rise on a gentle stream of air. Relax your mind and the ball will drop. It’s not just mental, there’s also some physical stuff involved as you try to guide the ball through a customizable obstacle course.

Lego camcorder spotted

Lego camcorder spottedThose Lego-branded Digital Blue devices/toys we’ve been telling you about are starting to surface. This prototype of the video camera was spotted at a toy fair in Nuremberg.

There aren’t any other details at the moment, but it’s a bit disappointing as it looks a little too polished and not handmade like the walkie talkie and digital camera we showed you. Oh well, you win some you lose some. It is a prototype, so who knows, it may go through some changes.

Alarm clock forces you to play a game of Simon in the morningWant to wake up in the morning only to have your brain trained with a retro memory game? Here’s the ticket. This alarm clock will not shut up until you play a version of the vintage game and get it right.

If you correctly remember the sequence of lights and press the buttons on the clock in the correct order, you can earn some peace and quiet, then either get out of bed or go back to sleep. On the other hand, you can always smash it to bits. I don’t see any info on price or availability.

Rubik’s Cube gets spherical update

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2009

Rubik’s Cube gets spherical updateRubik’s 360 is not an Xbox 360 title. It’s the next version of the popular cube puzzle that is a sphere. The device is about to be officially unveiled in Germany this week at a national toy show. As you might imagine nerds the world over are enthusiastic about laying their hands on it.

The gadget has six balls trapped inside transparent plastic spheres. To solve it, you have to figure out how to get the internal balls “from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.”

Mickey Mouse Transformer hits Japan

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2009

Mickey Mouse Transformer hits JapanSome people are obsessed with Disney. Some not so much. But the makers of this new Transformer toy from Japan clearly love both Mickey Mouse and Transformers. I admit, when we first spotted this toy in the prototype phase, at our robot sister site Botropolis, we weren’t all that impressed.

Then when we saw the first pics with some color, we still weren’t that thrilled and figured it was geared toward chumps who would buy anything Disney. However, now that we see the final product, I have to admit that it looks cool. And I’m no Mickey Mouse fan. It was on display at this week’s Tokyo Toy Forum 2009.

DIY Toy Piano shirt

DIY Toy Piano shirtEveryone is into fancy musical shirts these days. Shirts, shirts, the magical fruit, the more you wear ‘em the more they toot. Or something like that. You can make yourself one of these wearable toy piano shirts if you have the know-how. This one was made by a crafty and crazy modder who gutted a toy electronic piano and then sewed it into the fabric of a shirt. Of course that includes the batteries, speaker, and circuit board.

It was shown at the DIY Festival in Zurich and it looks pretty sweet in a Tron sort of way. I’d be happy with just the shirt, minus the piano parts. Yes, more outer space wear please.

H-Bouya USB toy is creepy, confusing, bald

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

H-Bouya USB toy is creepy, confusing, baldThe latest USB toy to come out of Japan is named H-Bouya. We’ll be honest here, it leaves us with a creepy, not safe feeling, mixed with confusion and please don’t stab us with a usb stick.

Okay, so what does it do? We are not really sure. One thing we know is that it turns red and blinks its eyes every time you hit the letter “H”. For some reason. Mostly it will just give you a crazy-eyed staring, mental beat-down without moving a limb. The objective may be to put you in a coma and report back to HQ via USB. When enough of us are asleep at our desks, it’s plan will be enter the next phase, whatever that is.

The minutes click ahead with a sound that evokes the classic flip of the numbers at airports or train stations, combining aural ambience with visual style.”
