Go Commando with Night Vision Goggles

Go Commando with Night Vision Goggles

Using infra red, these night vision goggles allow you to see up to fifteen meters in absolute darkness and even at full power, the light emitted is barely visible to the naked eye. Perfect for playing hide and seek in the garden, or watching owls and bats of an evening. And yes, you do get to pretend your stalking the bad guy (although I believe it is a prerequisite to hum the ‘Mission Impossible’ theme tune as you do).

Solar Coffee Maker Inspired by Documentary

Solar Coffee Maker Inspired by Documentary

While this may be the first solar Coffee Maker concept, it will undoubtedly not be the last. The small appliance houses a battery that is charged by the sun. Gun Ho Lee also gave it an LCD display with amount of power, hot plate and pod filter. The designer was apparently inspired by watching a documentary about how carbon effects the ecosystem. Maybe that should be
required for all.

Facebank. Just Freaky

Facebank. Just Freaky

The Facebank is the latest creation of the Japanese Takada Collection: a money box made with pink PVC skin, enabling it’s mouth to move in a freakily realistic way. Activate the sensors in its eyes by waving a coin at it, place the edge on it’s lips and it begins to gobble up your cash with every sign of enjoying it immensely. And then it belches. Yup- belches. Not only does it eat your cash like it’s chocolate money, it then burps in your face as a thank you.

Harmony 900 remote adds RF control

Harmony 900 remote adds RF control

Logitech announced today its new Harmony 900 remote control, adding an RF to IR bridge system to complement similar high-end features to those of the company’s previous remotes like the Harmony One. The Harmony 900 communicates with an RF hub, which in turn creates an IR signal to communicate with one of two receivers. What does this mean for you? You’ll have the benefits of out-of-range RF home theater or media PC control while still retaining IR compatibility. Other features of the Harmony 900 are similar to previous models including a color touchscreen, activity-based menu system, and the ability to control numerous devices simultaneously

My vote goes to Go Commando with Night Vision Goggles

tru Says: August 21, 2009 at 11:45 am

The gun cam and the power man are cool, but “mmmm, coffee.”

Justin Says: August 21, 2009 at 11:47 am

multiple outlet man…that’s just funny.

Harmony. Getting practical with age?

Geoff Says: August 21, 2009 at 1:09 pm

Night vision goggles – the concept of seeing in the dark is just too cool.

jack Says: August 21, 2009 at 2:04 pm

The Harmony Remote would work best for me. The night vision goggles would interest me if I could see better and the pistol camera would get you killed in a large American city.

BrunoTR Says: August 21, 2009 at 2:05 pm

Hands down, the eucalyptus motherboard wins this week. It looks VERY cool, and made me think of cyborg trees…

Amy Says: August 21, 2009 at 2:13 pm

This was tough but I think Night Vision Goggles are teh winner. The remote is good too, but the night vision seems more fun to me.

Coolest Pistol Camera from Japan – I want this!

Thyago Says: August 22, 2009 at 8:53 am

The goggles is the only interessing…

Helard Says: August 22, 2009 at 1:06 pm

The “Complete Swiss Army Knife” is so cool.

shaun Says: August 23, 2009 at 4:57 am

The motherboard has me wondering why we are enouraged to think that silicon is best for our pc.

dan Says: August 23, 2009 at 4:54 pm

i think we’ve all seen night vision googles before…
the coffee is interesting and new
the swiss army knife is legendary :P
the scales are very interesting and could be really handy
the face bank is awesome! i love it haha
the remote looks very handy.. but isn’t really the ‘coolest’ thing around
power plug man is cut and would be really useful, unless a child decides its a doll and electrocutes itself while playing with it :s
the eucalytus mother board is very innovative, but again, i doubt i’d be running around showing everyone i know how awesome it is
which brings me to the pistol camera… now i’ve seen one of these before, but this takes the cake 10 out 10 on the coolness factor, its awesome! i’d definitely want one of these
this one is the coolest gadget all week in my opinion!

Steve Says: August 23, 2009 at 11:02 pm

Whats up with the weird banks always comin in. But the facebank is definetely the first one i actually wanna try out.

Deen Says: August 24, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Don”t have a Harmony remote… yet.
