Dual VHS and DVD recorder from Sony

by Paz

Another retro gadget closely on the heels of the laser turntable we featured last week. From Sony, this is a dual VHS video and DVD recorder due to go on sale in the next few days for around $300.

MP3 player with built-in pedometer

I don’t do the exercise word, and hadn’t even considered it recently until I saw this cool MP3 player with a built-in pedometer. I guess many people aren’t keen on jogging, a session in the gymnasium, or even a brisk walk, because they find it boring. Imagine how much more tolerable it would be if you had an MP3 player to listen to a few of your favourite tracks whilst …
