Ecco GPS Keychain Saves From Exhausting Searches For Lost Vehicles

Ecco GPS Keychain Saves From Exhausting Searches For Lost Vehicles

Forgetting where my car is parked is something that happens to me on a fairly regular basis, which makes the Ecco GPS an enticing gadget to say the least. It is a GPS unit that serves only one function, to reunite you with your vehicle with the bare minimum of legwork.
It only holds three locations, but I only have one car so it sounds alright to me. Ten minutes of use per day will get you two weeks of battery time, and it is rechargeable via USB.

Xbox 360 - Project Natal

Xbox 360 – Project Natal

Project Natal is Microsoft’s next generation control system. Similar to the Wii, this new system requires a sensor bar, but unlike the Wii, the bar incorporates a camera, motion sensors and a microphone that can detect full body motion. This new system will allow for a whole new level of game play and interactivity without the need for game controllers.

Portable Misting Tower: Cool Down this Summer

Portable Misting Tower: Cool Down this Summer

A great way to keep warm as you’re soaking up the incredibly hot sun we’ve been having this week, the Portable Misting Tower does exactly what it says on the tin- it’s a 7’2″ tower which is portable and gives out mist when attached to a regular garden hose. A fine mist of water is sprayed from the top bar, falls on your skin and returns your body temperature from Mercury to Pluto (or at least Earth). Good for BBQ, sun worshiping and even the plants come Autumn!

Project Natal shows great promise for what the future of gaming, digital entertainment and technological interaction holds for us. It’s that first big step towards creating the high-tech societies we see in all the sci-fi movies and TV shows.

Jabberwock Says: June 5, 2009 at 7:01 am

The monitor would look nice on my desk…

tru Says: June 5, 2009 at 7:11 am

I know the monitor will win because it’s geek heaven, but I love the gps car locator. Sadly, that would be much more useful to me.

Geraldine Says: June 5, 2009 at 7:58 am

That 43″ curved monitor is very cool! Ooh that would be amazing to have.

Hasan Fahri Says: June 5, 2009 at 8:30 am

Ok, this week was a hard choice. There all useful and innovative in some way BUT i have to say Project Natal should win as its “standard setting” in the gaming industry. To take an already existing product (Xbox360), then lets not forget the disadvantage of the cancellation of HD-DVD which kind of killed one of the 360’s selling points THEN Microsoft bring out this which KILLS the Wii and sets itself apart from any other gaming machine. They just breathed new life into the 360 !!

Too bad the prize isn’t the Alienware Laptop :}(

Justin Says: June 5, 2009 at 8:40 am

Charging w/o being plugged in is always a winner for me!

Nick Says: June 5, 2009 at 8:56 am

Project Natal

Vadim Says: June 5, 2009 at 10:04 am

curved screen… oh yeah!

Riptide Says: June 5, 2009 at 10:17 am

Natal looks like a Wii killer.

StonzTwo Says: June 5, 2009 at 10:42 am

I was thinking the Natal at first, then remembered that I like FPS games… I honestly don’t see that working out well. Go curvy monitor thingy!

cara Says: June 5, 2009 at 12:44 pm

Music should be forever, I like it!

Michael Spurlock Says: June 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm

Natal is the most awesome thing in the history of ever.

If it works as advertised, that is.

If not, that curved screen is looking good to me.

Drew Says: June 5, 2009 at 2:36 pm

The monitor! Holy crap that’s a cool display. I am, however, intrigued by this “misting tower” you speak of. The link didn’t work for me and the thumbnail looks more like a coffee dispenser?

Michael Says: June 5, 2009 at 2:51 pm

You mean the coffee mister?

Drew Says: June 5, 2009 at 3:00 pm

Haha, “Introducing the Coffee Mister” I can see the ads now. No, no wait…No, those aren’t ads, they’re lawsuits. :D

J.Carey Says: June 5, 2009 at 7:55 pm

Xbox 360 – Project Natal: this just sounds like fun.

Xbox 360 – Project Natal

Thyago Says: June 6, 2009 at 6:51 am

Project Natal is what xbox360 was missing. The monitor is expensive. Natal rules!

L. Rask Says: June 6, 2009 at 7:28 pm

Oh, it’s gotta be Project Natal for me.

bbx Says: June 7, 2009 at 4:57 am

The curve monitor’s the coolest!

Jerry D. Says: June 7, 2009 at 1:55 pm

awesome monitor!!!!!!!!

Selene M. Says: June 8, 2009 at 6:21 am

I vote for the gaming laptop as that would be the most useful for me.

Well, the Xbox 360 Project Natal is gonna take it coz of the advancement in concept.. As compared with the Wii that uses controls it does not involve controls and can detect player position and movements just with the sensors.. i need not mention the camera and voice recognition system.. As with the Wii, a two year old would play on the Wii and win.. Coz you just move the control and bingo.. But this is going to be a totally different ball game.. And also for those game ADDICTS… You sure to get some excercise and stay healthy and fit :).. Another great reason for it to be the coolest gadget..
