Mini Freeview Digital TV and Media Player

Mini Freeview Digital TV and Media Player

When we first heard about this “TV tablet”, we got extremely excited with ideas about what exactly a TV tablet could do, flew around the office. We were slightly embarrassed when we realized that this was infact a media player and not a pill but our interest was still peaked. Portable media players are getting pretty common so to shake up this tired genre these clever bods have decided to shoe-horn a Digital TV receiver into the tiny 10.5 x 7.5 x 1.8 cm unit. “Portable tellies have been around since the 90s so that is not to impressive either” we thought. But this little portable gizmo has a lot more tricks up it sleeve

Green Badge Wearable Solar Cell

Green Badge Wearable Solar Cell

Leon Zhu feels that solar powered cell phones aren’t so practical as they are usually kept in a pocket when not in use. The designer’s idea is to incorporate a solar cell module with a photo-electric conversion coat and an ultra-thin battery pack that can be worn or clipped to clothes or bags. The Green Badge harnesses the sun and stores it in its built-in necklace to power up those phones. It can also be used as a light source on its own.

Star Wars Force Trainer

Star Wars Force Trainernes

Tipped to be a hot Christmas present for 2009. Remember the scenes in the first Star Wars movie where Luke is training to use the Force? Now you too can learn to ‘use the Force’ to move a small ball in a tube and progress through fifteen levels of training to become a Jedi master. Well, actually it uses the power of your brainwaves via cutting edge EEG sensor technology. Which is still bloody impressive!

I vote for the Star Wars Force Trainers, nothing can be cooler than that!

Gabriel A.T Says: October 19, 2009 at 10:29 am

Have this Force training gadget I must!

Pedro Says: October 19, 2009 at 11:27 am

I choose the james-dyson air multiplier bladeless room fan, seems safer for kids!

jack Says: October 19, 2009 at 11:59 am

the tv/pmp works for me since I sit in waiting rooms alot.

Rafa Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:19 pm

I choose the bladeless fan because seriously, Brazil is boiling right now.

Jabberwock Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:34 pm

Bladeless fan is, at least, intriguing… It’s a surefire conversation starter, too bad that with other geeks and not with girls!

Jay Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:42 pm

A fan with no blades is pretty cool.

tru Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:44 pm

Much coolness this week, but I seriously want the wearable solar cell. Think about it… solar neck ties that can charge your ipod, necklaces that can boost your cell phone, ear rings to power your blue tooth. I like it!

msspurlock Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:48 pm

I’ve been touting the Force Trainer ever since I saw the prototype.

Jason Says: October 19, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Bladeless fan is very interesting… Great for kids, at least.

Vadim Says: October 19, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Dyson fan is neat, but way too expensive.

Stevon Roberts Says: October 19, 2009 at 2:48 pm

All cool gadgets, but the NES cartridge has retro appeal, and I’m feeling nostalgic lately.

Maxxx Says: October 19, 2009 at 3:01 pm

How can the Star Wars Force Trainer not win? Feel the Force, Luke!

Dan Says: October 19, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Ha! Ha! Silencio TV! Harry Potter FTW. Alohomora Playboy Channel… :)

katherine ajk Says: October 19, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Love the bag – saves a ton of storage space. If you’re like me, you have over 10 pieces for different biz trips. Why can’t they all be like this?!?!?!

Krysta Says: October 19, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Good ol’ nintendo days…

J.Carey Says: October 19, 2009 at 7:20 pm

This week, I want pretty much everything.

Bruce B Says: October 19, 2009 at 11:13 pm

Harry Potter rc – can change channels or conduct an orchestra.

Rajshekhar Says: October 20, 2009 at 12:16 am

I would select Green Badge Wearable Solar Cell, reason is its very handy and once you get to used to it you will never need to recharge your cell phone, and it could be recharged from any where.

StonzTwo Says: October 20, 2009 at 6:26 am

I think that the magic wand is a pretty cool idea

Coyote Says: October 20, 2009 at 6:55 am

That foot tanner just freaks me out.. could you imagine someone with just bronzed feet??

Amy Says: October 20, 2009 at 7:48 am

Bladeless fan – mainly because we have fans all over our house. The foot tanner is the worst idea I have seen in a while.

Thyago Says: October 20, 2009 at 8:09 am

The Bladeless fan looks very interessing.

Dan Says: October 20, 2009 at 11:59 am

A NES in a NES Cartridge…? Sign me up. I wouldn’t even have to wear out the NES I just bought!

Helard Says: October 20, 2009 at 8:02 pm

The Mini Freeview Digital TV and Media Player is so cool!! I wanted it!!

Jamie Says: October 20, 2009 at 9:12 pm

There have been many cool fan designs, but for the most part they have all focused on features and body design. I have recently seen one new fan design that replaced standard blades with soft rubber ones to make it safer for children, animals and stupid adults. But this is the first fan I’ve seen to focus on redesigning the way fans function at a core level. very cool

Ravi Kant Says: October 20, 2009 at 11:55 pm

that foot tanner freaks me out….

Toni Says: October 21, 2009 at 9:54 am

But EEG Sensor technology? VERY cool. It’s the next best thing to telekinesis!

Rick Says: October 21, 2009 at 3:16 pm

You cant really buy the hacked NES cartridge thing can you?

Greg Jones Says: October 21, 2009 at 4:37 pm

I choose the Force Trainer. I haven’t honed my Jedi skills since grammar school.

Bruce Says: October 21, 2009 at 4:41 pm

FAN!!

bbx Says: October 21, 2009 at 10:07 pm

I love the magic wand!!! Too cool!

Wilbur Says: October 22, 2009 at 9:08 am

I agree will Greg Jones.
I think that the Force Trainer will be fun but I bet it also may have some practical uses as well.

Andy Says: October 22, 2009 at 10:55 am

the Star Wars Force Trainernes are the coolest thing ever!!! i can just picture myself sitting in my living room for hours and hours playing with it. umm, that would be kind of crepy actualy. but its still so cool.
