We’re into our fifth coolest gadget of the week, some cool entries this week (along with what I reckon might be the worst entry yet), what’s coolest, you decide (as usual one voter/commenter will win a $50 Amazon voucher).


Panic Mouse

Panic Mouse Motorized Cat Toy

Cats like to sleep all day, but they need some exercise to stay in good health. The Panic Mouse has a bendy “fishing pole” with a toy attached to a string that moves around in random motions. The cat will have a blast trying to grab (and will also forget to scratch the couch). Check out the website for a video of the toy in action!

Wind Up Remote Control

Wind up remote control

You TV remote always runs out of battery at the worst time but now you can just wind it up and not have to worry about it running out again. It’ll save you money on batteries and it’s much better for the environment.

Lego WallE

The Lego Wall-E Trash Collecting Robot

Flee digiatal flying camera

Flee Digital Camera: When an Airplane isn’t on Hand

A cool gadget brings innovation to a conventional idea and that’s exactly what the Flee Digital Camera has done. This camera is designed to be thrown into the air where it will then take amazing aerial photos, something that until now you would have needed a small plane for. The aerial shots are then sent back to your mobile phone via Bluetooth, before the Flee returns to the ground ready for use again. Photography has never been more fun!

Definitely the Lego Wall-E trash collector. It’s like a Roomba but fun.

I am not too impressed with this weeks nominees. I guess I will vote for the wind up remote seing how it is probably the most practical. Please make next weeks entrants more interesting.

Flee Digital camera looks awesome. I could take some really creative shots with that!

Jarek Says: July 18, 2008 at 9:07 am

I vote for the camera, although I am sure my cat (and my kid!) would vote for the cat toy…

Marty Says: July 18, 2008 at 9:09 am

The camera is wicked! The perfect thing to take on holiday with you.

Zultone Says: July 18, 2008 at 10:39 am

I voted for the camera. Seems like the perfect gift for the outdoors/active person, imagine the shots from playing football with it!

Jason Says: July 18, 2008 at 11:07 am

Definitely the Flee. Google Earth is cool, but this will add a detailed personal touch to aerial photography!

Northerngeek Says: July 18, 2008 at 11:59 am

Wall-E for sure. Just the fun of putting it together appeals to me and my kids.

Ian Says: July 19, 2008 at 11:19 am

I did a whole series on a camera toss once. The pictures were pretty amazing considering.
This looks a lot easier and a lot less risky to the camera.

I love photography and am always looking for new angles. I’m sure this would provide some amazing shots and angles. Great gadget!
