I'm not too sure how discreet you can be by having a video camera embedded within a remote controlled car, but this definitely is the wrong choice of gadgets to use if you want to secretly film a tryst as evidence. I suppose it is meant more for adventurous types to get a feel of how it is like sitting inside a tiny car such as this, since it will wirelessly broadcast a VGA video stream over to a set of LCD goggles which you wear, getting a first person view of things. Amazingly, the goggles can also track your head's motion, where the camera on the buggy will respond accordingly, letting you look left, right, up and down. Would be nice to see this system being included on remote controlled planes as well. Such a toy won't come cheap though, as it retails for a whopping $1,172.
Turn on the bling with Medion's GoPal E3215 Glamour Edition. This portable navigation device comes in a purse-friendly pearlescent pink design, along with the following features :-
All sound cards require some sort of drivers to function, right? Wrong! You can actually build your own sound card from scratch, although it won't on par (far from it) compared to those magical Sound Blasters. At its heart remains a 16-bit Stereo Digital-to-Analog Converter, and you do need steady hands to get the soldering part done correctly. It shouldn't take more than a few hours to cobble one together, and it will be driverless just like many M-Audio and Griffin products out there, working in both Windows XP and Vista environments just fine. It ain't pretty to look at, but at least it works!
Averatec is going to push its all-in-one single body computer that features a smaller keyboard and all the relevant peripherals needed to get you started on your computing adventure, with a slim monitor housing to boot. Features include :-
The C4OPS Combat Headset from Silnyx Communications claims to be the one and only (to date) combat headset system that offers GPS and force tracking abilities to the dismounted soldier, helping them navigate to the target through voice prompt indications. I sure hope the software is updated along with the latest co-ordinates, as we wouldn't want the poor soldier to wander into a secret military encampment, outgunned and outnumbered. It would also be nice if this came with some sort of super mine detector lest your soldier lose his limb, or even worse, his life. The C4OPS is tipped to retail between $1,000 and $1,500 when it is released to the US military.
Thanko has released yet another well-being device for you, and this time it comes in the form of a Wrist Pad Mouse. This mouse comes with a 1cm thick wrist support constructed from silicon, complete with a honeycomb design that aims to combat fatigue and pain associated with prolonged use of the mouse. It is attached via a spring, allowing you to move freely whenever you browse through your computer or engage in some heavy clicking games. Compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms, the Wrist Pad Mouse retails for $15 a pop.
Here's an image from Engadget that showcases the back portion of the upcoming LG VX8610. Word on the street has it that it will be available from Verizon sometime next month, featuring an integrated Bluetooth headset that is also part of the phone - I assume it will be docked somewhere within the handset just like how a stylus is. Unfortunately, there is no official word on its availability and pricing, so we'll just have to be patient and sit this one out for the moment.
The Glo Pillow concept is something you don't see every day - this pillow uses an LED fabric substrate right below the pillow's surface, aiming to wake the user with light. It will kick into action 45 minutes before the alarm is due to activate, letting the pillow glow as though you have a halo right behind your head. The intensity will increase by stages from 0 lux all the way to 250 lux, helping your body wake up the natural way. The LED fabric substrate also doubles up as a display, showing the current time on it's surface thanks to a grid of LEDs located inside the pillow. Not too sure how much battery this will take, but hopefully it won't rudely jolt you from your beauty sleep.

When the alarm goes off on this puppy, you need to pick up the laser target and shoot the bull’s eye. The idea is that if you have to focus enough to do that, you’ll be sufficiently awake not to fall back to sleep easily. I’m pretty sure I can ‘beat’ this, a.k.a. hit the [...]
