Star Wars Milennium Falcon Sled

Let’s face it, the average overly enthusiastic Star Wars fan is
probably more at home in front of his or her favorite trilogy than
they are on the slopes. So what to do when one’s friends head out for
a delightful day on the mountain? Pack in your Milennium Falcon sled
and let the good times roll. Sledding requires almost no physical
coordination beyond that which can be developed via video games.

Philips Prestigo Universal Remote Control

Philips Prestigo Universal Remote Control

Philips Prestigo SRT9320 universal remote control is nothing short of beautiful. At the top end is a 2.8-inch color touchscreen with all your channels, logos and all. On the bottom end is a variety of hard keys that control every function. The SRT9320 is fully programmable without connecting to a PC–it comes with a USB connect for firmware updates–though CNET reports its much easier to use the PC for “multidevice macros”. The Prestigo can control up to 20 different devices so I can see how a computer connection might simplify things here. Available in the first quarter of 2009, Philips Prestigo SRT9320 will set you back $249.

Based on how much trouble I have waking up, definitely the vibrating alarm pillow.

John Says: December 19, 2008 at 7:54 am

I like the iMu vibrating speaker

Jabberwock Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:04 am

R\C car is definitely the coolest, but what I would really like is the Prestigo remote…

vince Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:12 am

cool stuff! i love looking throught the gadgets on the site, and have bought some as well. keep up the good work

Nick Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:23 am

Keyboard looks the coolest.

Matthew Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:28 am

Heck, most of them are great this time around. It’s hard choosing which to vote for. Decided to go for the R2D2 hub.

Vadim Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:32 am

R\C toys are definitely the coolest gadgets.

Juergen Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:37 am

Keyboard – definately

Krysta Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:39 am

Anti-gravity car looks pretty cool and original.

Jason Says: December 19, 2008 at 9:36 am

If the iMu works like they say it does, that will be pretty cool. It would be fun to try it out on different surfaces to see which sound the best.

Skippy Says: December 19, 2008 at 11:25 am

Big Star Wars fan. Was a toss up between the Milennium Falcon Sled and R2D2 USB hub.

Selene Says: December 19, 2008 at 12:38 pm

The Vibrating Alarm Clock Pillow is a great idea. Would be a good pairing with my pillow radio speaker.

Egg Picasso Says: December 19, 2008 at 1:18 pm

Oh boy, I wanna pillow like that- my nerves are getting shot with the annoying alarm clock going off. I was going to pick the anti-gravity remote control car as my first choice but the pillow oh my goodness- definitely a nice way to wake up, especially f you are staying at someone else’s place and don’t wish to disturb anyone.

jerry Says: December 19, 2008 at 1:42 pm

I think the keyboard is a cool piece of artwork =) wow $200 perfect timing for some late Christmas present shopping =)

Jenna Says: December 19, 2008 at 5:28 pm

I’m for the vibrating alarm clock pillow. It’d be interesting to test that to see how gentle the wake-up really is.

Helard Says: December 19, 2008 at 5:55 pm

Man, the “Noggin Nets: MP3 Enabled Beanies” is for me the best, I’m already order one to stay tuned with my MP3 player when walking during my daily conmmute.

Menace Says: December 19, 2008 at 6:20 pm

getting buried in AV equipment, universal remote all the way! :)

Bob Says: December 19, 2008 at 7:44 pm

I gotta go with the remote. Can’t have too many of those shoved in a junk drawer.

jcarey Says: December 19, 2008 at 7:48 pm

Wall car… I must have that.

Justin Says: December 19, 2008 at 8:13 pm

Anti-gravity car! I guess you are never too old for a remote control car! This is amazing, but I doubt I can get my girlfriend to buy me one for Christmas!

Rita A. Says: December 19, 2008 at 9:29 pm

How much fun to have an R2D2 on your desk that beeps. I think this is a great gadget.

Sfgrl4jesus Says: December 20, 2008 at 6:08 am

I like the idea of the iMu vibrating speaker the best. It isn’t as beautiful as the keyboard, but the tech is more innovative. Too bad someone doesn’t “steam-punk” the speaker (and the Ipod while they’re at it). It would be fun to design it, but I wouldn’t be able to actually make it. 8(

Gene Says: December 20, 2008 at 8:56 am

I would love to use the iMu speaker to turn a lunchroom table into a big boom box!

Sarah Says: December 20, 2008 at 10:21 am

The gaming chair looks like fun.

Mike Says: December 20, 2008 at 1:09 pm

That remote looks great. Anything to help organize the mess of electronics.

conedude13 Says: December 20, 2008 at 1:17 pm

That Philips Prestigo SRT9320 is sweeeeet. Shame the after-light didn’t make it. ah well :P

Cathy Says: December 21, 2008 at 6:33 am

I like the Vibrating Alarm Pillow. Hate hearing the Alarm clock go off in the morning. This would be much nicer.

Rowanfalar Says: December 21, 2008 at 6:41 am

The Steam punk keyboard is so beautiful. The amount of work that went into it is phenomenal. I am truly impressed by it’s creators ingenuity. I would love one of those myself, but I wouldn’t have the patience to make it.

Denis Ranos Says: December 21, 2008 at 7:04 am

Who doesn’t want to fight gravity?? Wall car is your knight!! ahhaha very nice

max rascon Says: December 21, 2008 at 9:50 am

R\C car is definitely the coolest, i can imagine using this toy for hours

Bobby Says: December 21, 2008 at 12:14 pm

The Anti Grav Car was featured in the last Top Gear show :) I voted for it here.

Jack M. Says: December 22, 2008 at 8:17 am

Remote Control – I’d never buy one but I’d sure enjoy it if someone gave it to me. :)

Achmed Says: December 22, 2008 at 1:39 pm

Gotta go with the pillow. So cool!

Clay Says: December 22, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Whoa! The keyboard looks sweet!

Matt K. Says: December 31, 2008 at 9:00 pm

I voted for the Pong watch. Simply because it brings back a lot of good memories :)
