M400 Skycar: Fly me to the moon… or to work will do just fine

The M400 Skycar is the first feasible, personally affordable personal vertical take off and landing vehicle. In other words, it’s a flying car! It’s similar to another concept featured on Gaj-it, but much cooler in terms of looks, speed, and usability. It features storage for your groceries and is up to three times faster than any light helicopter today.

Digital pasta timer spoon

If you need help in the kitchen department, this might be the answer. Just key in the type of pasta you’re cooking, its weight and how you like your pasta done and it’ll give you a perfect plate of pasta every time.

ColorRight – Custom White Balance Gets Easy

I cannot express the simplicity and accuracy of this device enough. For those of you who never use custom white balance, the “wow” factor you get out of your first image will blow you away. For those of you that use a white card or try to snap your white balance off some guy’s white t-shirt, I’m sure that you can see the potential that ColorRight could have in your shooting.

Takoyaki aka Octopus Ball Maker

Anyone who visits the Osaka area knows takoyaki, the fluffy octopus balls made on the streets and sold at festivals. Good Takoyaki is a source of pride, and it’s difficult to make on your own, but the Takoyaki Factory Ton Ton just makes it look so easy!

Geeky Furniture – The Periodic Coffee Table

The Periodic Coffee table measures 4 ft x 2.5 ft x 16 inches, and if features all the 92 natural elements as well as all of the man made elements actually built in to the table.

Don’t worry though, all the dangerous ones are marked by a radioactive symbol, and according to the manufacturer they are totally safe.

Mobile jammer

Cell Phone Jammer

I hate being stuck on a train when some idiot is yelling down a phone (for some reason callers need to shout when in confined public spaces), this nifty gadget fixes that, the Portable Cell Phone Jammer. Now if only they’d make one to work with MP3 players.

Cellphone Jammer! I’d turn it on at every movie theatre!

Donnell Says: August 15, 2008 at 7:02 am

I’d have to vote for the cell phone jammer not only would it be the source of none stop hilarity but I never had Octopus balls

marco munoz Says: August 15, 2008 at 7:16 am

its must in theaters and libraries

I love what the little cell phone jammer can do. A quiet dinner with my family when I go to Mom’s without my little sister texting and talking at the table. Perfect.

curt Says: August 15, 2008 at 8:17 am

I think the sky car is the coolest, because you can play leap frog with them. That’s cool.

Mike Constantine Says: August 15, 2008 at 8:25 am

Not a big pasta guy, but I could see myself using this if I were.

Jason Says: August 15, 2008 at 8:57 am

The cell phone jammer! What fun.

Al Says: August 15, 2008 at 9:48 am

I think the timer spoon and periodic coffee table are great ideas but the flying car is certainly cool. Certainly is a tough one to call this week.

it’s got to be the pasta timer. Pasta has to be the most annoying thing to cook. if only they’d make one for rice

Neagle Says: August 16, 2008 at 9:43 am

It’s a skycar. How can anything on this list compete with that? It would take at least a month to get the Jetsons intro theme song out of my head.

Krysta Says: August 17, 2008 at 8:45 am

Pasta cooked to perfection…need I say more?

Doug Says: August 17, 2008 at 10:48 am

Everywhere I go,insensitive people talking,talking,droning on.Much ado about nothing.Talking to distraction and while driving and at the movies.But,the worst of all are those clods talking on fonz in the library and not in hushed tones.I go there for solace not to listen to horseshit!!

I remember all those obnoxious AT&T commercials about being the phone company with the least dropped calls. Now With my level of maturity, which is equivalent too a seven year old with a BB gun, I would have to go with the cell phone jammer. I would like the skycar, but while a major improvement, to me it seem like an improved version of a parasail car. also, the way cell phones seem to be such a everyday product instead of a convenience, it would be kind of nice just to see people without one.

Dan Says: August 18, 2008 at 6:11 pm

Definitely the cell phone jammer. you could have so much fun with that. Especially around teenagers.
