Gigapan Epic For Gigapixel Panorama Photography

Would definitely be a time saver, not to mention very cool!

Brent Says: February 20, 2009 at 9:44 am

I thought this microwave was great! Space saving because of two appliances in one. Great gadget!

cara c Says: February 20, 2009 at 9:53 am

i can’t help it, i loves me some green music to play the blues.

n Says: February 20, 2009 at 10:04 am

How do we know if we won?

Jenna Says: February 20, 2009 at 10:04 am

Microwave w/pizza oven! Dorm room perfection.

Allison Says: February 20, 2009 at 10:21 am

it looks ridiculous to wear, but I think I would need the third eye video camera.

Jabberwock Says: February 20, 2009 at 10:49 am

While I really hate to leave the dino behind, the Gigapan certainly speaks directly to the dormant photographer in me… If I (ever) take up photography, this might come in handy. But wait, who gets the artistic kudos then, me or the robot?

Michael Spurlock Says: February 20, 2009 at 11:30 am

The GigaPan is very cool, but I feel like that’s something I can make myself.

I’ve been wanting a Pleo since they were in development.

Brandi Says: February 20, 2009 at 12:11 pm

I like the Evolve Wireless Music System. Music anywhere you like!

Krysta Says: February 20, 2009 at 12:53 pm

I’ve actually heard something similar to the VIZIO Sound Bar. I was impressed.

Thyago Says: February 20, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Gigapan looks interessing.

Justin Says: February 20, 2009 at 1:51 pm

Microwave w/ pizza oven. Why didn’t they have this when I was in college? I’m still buying one!

Adam Says: February 20, 2009 at 2:02 pm

I want the third eye camera, just so I can be the new-age ultimate japanese tourist.

Mike Says: February 20, 2009 at 2:31 pm

Dino pet!

Deen Says: February 20, 2009 at 2:56 pm

Surround sound without the tangle…

Microwave Oven with a Pizza Drawer Underneath

Neat idea!

Jason Says: February 20, 2009 at 3:21 pm

Definitely the pizza drawer. Yummy.

Vadim Says: February 20, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Oh yeah… Gigapan Epic For Gigapixel Panorama Photography. Way cool.

Drew Says: February 20, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Microwave definitely. Not exactly college age, but I likes me mah pizza! Surround sound from one sound source always turns out bad, and I’d rather not strap a camera to my face…I see too many weird people everyday. I should know, I’m one of them.

Pedro Guedes Says: February 20, 2009 at 5:11 pm

I think its the iphone controlled usb missile launcher, because now you dont need to be in front of your desktop, and people wont know who ordered the atack…

Maxxx Says: February 20, 2009 at 7:09 pm

The microwave and pizza oven gets my vode – I could live off pizza and microwaved popcorn!
zITS!

Wendy Says: February 20, 2009 at 7:41 pm

Iphone usb missile launcher. Boring office moments be gone!

Jessica Says: February 20, 2009 at 9:44 pm

I’m all about the wireless music system. It would be great to be able to take the speakers all over the house.

Jerry D. Says: February 20, 2009 at 11:46 pm

that gigapan thing is really cool, its fun to look at that inauguration pic and zoom in on all the faces :]

jcarey Says: February 21, 2009 at 12:47 am

Gigapan Epic For Gigapixel Panorama Photography – something that actually interested me more than pizza, and that’s really saying something.

nicholas Says: February 21, 2009 at 2:19 am

I voted for the wind up mp3 player

AMiR Says: February 21, 2009 at 8:35 am

yogesh Says: February 21, 2009 at 10:20 am

The Third Eye Video Camera

Helard Says: February 21, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I really need a system to “distribute” music on my house without to dare with cables and making holes trough the walls.

tomaz Says: February 22, 2009 at 12:37 am

John Says: February 23, 2009 at 7:37 am

My kids would love the dinosaur.

Justin Says: February 23, 2009 at 4:37 pm

Oooh! Surround Sound bar for sure! I love that sense that a dinosaur is behind you!….or an exploding vehicle….either way it works.
