FC Mobile II Portable NES Player
Thursday, April 30, 2009 4:21 PM

Swweeeeeeeeet !

 

 Okay this little item is pretty awesome. It’s a portable NES player. How cool is that? You can actually play the original NES games and plug it right into the system. You also get two wireless controllers as well as the Zapper gun. Of course you can plug the little guy into your TV and play which make sense with the wireless controllers. Anyways these things really aren’t on the market yet but you can get them on ebay. :)

 

Update: This item is now availible and can be bought at Amazon for $60 bucks with free super saver shipping. !

The iTie - A little Weird
Thursday, April 30, 2009 4:01 PM

I Think it's a good idea just not for me

 

 The iTie is a pretty interesting concept. I have to say that I would never where this thing. For the following reasons #1 because the tie has a pocket #2 it attaches itself to your shirt, which is weird. I think this item is a little too geeky for me however but if it’s up your ally all the more power to yeah.

iShower Curtain
Thursday, April 30, 2009 3:45 PM

Talk about singing in the shower

 

 I thought this was really cool if you’re a Mac geek like me. This shower curtain is emulating the now famous iPod commercials featuring the black silhouettes with colorful backgrounds. I have to admit I don’t think my wife would allow me to put this in our bathroom but I still think it’s cool.

Chocoshuffle shuffle Case and the ThumbTacks Mini-Mic
Monday, April 27, 2009 5:41 PM

Oh That Looks Yummy!


 

 This is a little rubber cover for the new iPod Shuffle that looks like a bar of chocolate. I have to admit that I posted this one just because it looked yummy. I think it’s a great idea and would be a great case option for the new iPod shuffle. You could also go and checkout some of there other stuff they have on their website, Like this microphone for the iPod touch or Nano. It looks like a pushpin but it’s really a mini microphone for recording voice memos or placing skype calls.

The Worlds Smallest R/C Airplane - Geek Toy
Friday, April 24, 2009 3:15 PM

Wow That’s Small



When I saw this one I thought it was the coolest thing. I didn’t know something that small could actually fly and be controlled. You can actually control the back flap so you can actually steer the plane. These little planes look to be custom made so the price is a bit steep. This model sells for about $99 but it’s a pretty unique product and there really isn’t anything on the market like it right now.

USB NES Controller
Thursday, April 23, 2009 5:12 PM

Just like the Good ol' Days

 

 Okay so I had a post on the NES SNES Duo that allows you to play your old NES and SNES games. One of comments on that post suggested using a Emulator. Emulates are great but use loose that controller interface that you get with the console game. I would play PC games more if a controller was more practical. Anyways this product is great because it looks just like the original NES controller, which you can plug right into your USB port on your computer.

$29.99 @ ThinkGeek

Zombie Haiku - Books for Geeks
Thursday, April 23, 2009 4:47 PM

Perfect for a Friend Near You ;)

 

 So as you can see this next product is not a toy. Awwww sorry, but it is geek related. As I mentioned earlier geeks, like me anyways, love zombies so why not have a book of Zombie Haiku. I’m a sensitive guy and can stomach poetry, but this makes it just a bit better. Something like:

Lying on the road,
a few ate until they burst.
I eat what burst out.

Pretty awesome I think.
8.99 @ ThinkGeek


Of course the second book looks awesome I haven’t read it but it seems like something that would go great on the coffee table or the bathroom. It’s the Geeks Guide to World Domination. This book is packed with fun and geeky things to do that are sure to make you awesome. Things Like:

•    Brew your own beer
•    Build a laser beam
•    Clone your pet
•    Exorcise demons
•    Grasp the theory of relativity
•    Have sex on Second Life
•    Kick ass with sweet martial-arts moves
•    Master the Ocarina of Time
•    Pimp your cubicle
•    Quote He-Man and Che Guevara
•    Unmask Linus Torvalds

Huge iPod Headphone Computer Speakers
Thursday, April 16, 2009 5:38 PM

Dang those are big!

 

I am a huge fan of apple products and of course I have had my fair share of iPods. So why wouldn’t you want a set of huge iPod headphones. Come on now you know that these would look super cool sitting next to your computer. I thought they were interesting however I am also a big fan of the Logitech surround sound speaker that they make. They are little inexpensive and pack a punch. Anyways check them out over at Amazon.

Ctrl Alt Del Pillows
Wednesday, April 15, 2009 4:49 PM

Can I get a Computer Reference?

 

 Question how do geeky people decorate their offices? Answer with computer references on everyday items. I thought these were pretty cool. Who doesn’t need a little Ctrl, Alt, Del action? I mean for all you Windows people out there your really familiar with this. I have a wife and she would not approve of these pillows but if I was single I would be “all up ons” .

    2 Controllers included
    5V AC Adapter for Energy Efficiency
    Air-through Vent to prevent Overheating
    Compatible with most Japanese titles
    Compatible with original 16-bit controllers

Work your phone without freezing your fingers

Gadget Gloves


 This product I just find interesting and a little bit ridiculous. Maybe because I live in Florida and this wouldn’t be that useful to me. Anyways these are gloves that have cutouts on the thumb and index finger so you can work your digital devices without freezing your other fingers off. I thought it was a good idea but again not sure how ridiculous the idea really is.

Mini RC Forklift

Mini RC Forklift

 

 

If there’s one thing that I love more than a R/C vehicle it’s a R/C vehicle that can do something other that just move around. This is why the R/C Forklift is awesome. Control this mini forklift and try and lift objects off the floor or just bother your cat.

Hover Q Tiny R/C Hovercraft

 

I told you that I love anything this remote controlled right? Well incase I didn’t I do and here is another example of this. This is another ThinkGeek product and it’s pretty cool. I have always wanted my own hovercraft but never got around to getting one.

I guess this little guy will have to do. Seems like a lot of fun to play with. Go and check him out over at ThinkGeek.

Plush Steve Jobs – This is only awesome to Mac Freaks
Tuesday, April 7, 2009 3:15 PM

Plush Steve Jobs

 

 

Don’t you ever wish you could just sit down and chat with Steve Jobs and tell him what you want the next iPhone to do? Well now you can with the Plush Steve Jobs. I thought this was great just that fact that you can actually buy this thing is awesome. Steve Jobs is about 17” high and will most likely get along with your other plush characters.

The website that sells them is Podbrix.com. PodBrix sells modified minifigs inspired by the popular ad campaign for portable music players. In the future they may branch out to other related minifigs. It’s a very interesting concept and a bit expensive, but go check out their website anyways.

Steve is all hand made including his wire framed glasses and shoe laces. This might make you feel better about dropping $27.99 on it, to know what it wasn't made in some kind of sweatshop somewhere.
