At present there are eight in action around London, four under construction and another ten that have been ordered,

Sat nav shoes

Sat nav shoes

Just enter a postcode on your heal and away you go. The LED bubble on the front of your right shoe will show you which direction to walk in and beep at you if you go the wrong way. You can also listen to spoken directions through a Bluetooth headset. No maps, no questions to strangers and no arguments over directions.

Garmin Forerunner 405CX - New Calorie Counting Fitness GPS

Garmin Forerunner 405CX – New Calorie Counting Fitness GPS

Garmin announced the new Forerunner 405CX also today as a top of the line intelligent fitness device that uses a complex algorithm to help you accurately count calories burned while working out. The unit not only features the same great, attractive GPS-based capabilities, but also a new calorie counting feature that uses an algorithm that detects changes in your heart rate during aerobic activity to better calculate the end result. The Forerunner 405CX still keeps the thin profile and a touch bezel to control the system that is so popular with the very watch-like high tech device.

The Forerunner 405CX should be available tis summer, and will be on display at the Boston Marathon in a couple of weeks.

The Only Self Propelled Suitcase

The Only Self Propelled Suitcase

The first of its kind, this is the self-propelled luggage that automatically provides power assistance when you encounter inclines or are straining to roll the luggage. Sensors in the handle monitor how much force you are using to pull the suitcase and signal to electric motors in the wheels to engage when you are struggling, propelling the suitcase up to 3 MPH.

Asus Eee PC Keyboard: No Monitor Required

Asus Eee PC Keyboard: No Monitor Required

In the interest of minimalism, Asus have created quite a stir with their lastest Eee PC Keyboard that comes complete with its own 5 inch touch screen. So you don’t have to crank your neck up to look at a monitor, the Asus Eee PC Keyboard comes complete with 1.6 GHz Atom Processor, 1GB of RAM, and either 16 or 32 GB SSD for internal storage. There are also USB, VGA and HDMI ports to hook up the keyboard to a monitor or TV so you’re not restricted to watching Fast and Furious on something the size of a beer coaster.

Optoma Pico Transforms iPhone Into Projector

Optoma Pico Transforms iPhone Into Projector

The Optoma Pico can turn your iPod or iPhone into a projector. The 4.1″ PK-101 can work as close as 8″ or up to 8′ away and still display sharp images. Shine it on a wall, a piece of furniture, a car seat or your cat (if he/she is dozing) and the image will still be true. The Pico only weighs 4 oz. and has a rechargeable battery life of 1.5 hours. Included in the $399.00 price are two batteries. Time liked it so well they made it one of their top ten gadgets of 2008.

Remote Security Sentry

Remote Security Sentry

When you’re away, fire-up this remote security robot to ‘roam’ the house
beaming back a live image of your home to an Internet enabled device. The
bot automatically finds its charging base for a power up, so you can leave
this running longer – such as when away on holiday.

Pop-up garage; the more space the better.

Jabberwock Says: April 3, 2009 at 12:03 pm

Eeeee PC Keyboard! I want it, although I still don’t know what I would do with it…

Juergen Says: April 3, 2009 at 12:19 pm

You do know that the shoes were an April fools joke at Firebox? ;-)

Deen Says: April 3, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Self-propelled luggage… a boon to the decrepit masses.

Feint Says: April 3, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Put me down for the Remote Sentry, I mean the thing knows how to recharge itself and it provides great security, a very lowly thief may even be scared away by it. Also the mechanically inclined could mount “security” or “thief deterrent” mechanisms on it.

Maxxx Says: April 3, 2009 at 2:43 pm

Imagine an airport lounge with everyone being followed y their self-propelled suitcase :)

Jose Joaquin Says: April 3, 2009 at 2:55 pm

The Pop-up Garage is the best, it saves up a lot of space, but I think it will be very expensive.

Drew Says: April 3, 2009 at 3:40 pm

“Holy-That’s-a-lot-of-cool-gagets-Al-Man” You really dug deep this week. I’ll take one of each! ;) I guess my vote goes to the pop-up garage. Very cool in a James Bond kinda way.

Jason Says: April 3, 2009 at 4:35 pm

The pop-up garage is cool, but seems impractical. I can use the Asus keyboard today, so I voted for it. Good gadgets this week, though.

Skippy Says: April 3, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Decisions, decisions… had to go with the pop up garage. What’s “greener” than that?!

Deanna Says: April 3, 2009 at 8:35 pm

I’m a computer geek according to my boyfriend so of course I voted for the Asus Eee PC Keyboard. ;)

Jerry D. Says: April 3, 2009 at 8:41 pm

buy the tumbler from batman and put it in that pop-up garage that’d be so sweet!!

dadaxtra Says: April 3, 2009 at 9:09 pm

The choices are tough this week but I would have to vote for the The Cardok pop up garage.

tomaz Says: April 4, 2009 at 1:16 am

the garage is cool, i admit, but i’d use the watch more often.

Justin Says: April 5, 2009 at 8:47 am

The pop up garage looks like it belongs in the underground wing of Wayne Manor! Awesome, would be great for city parking where we can’t build detached garages because of city ordinances!

Jenna Says: April 5, 2009 at 9:21 am

That base-jumping suit is pretty rad.

nick Says: April 6, 2009 at 6:09 am
