iPod Mini Rebuilt in Australian Red Cedar

iPod Mini Rebuilt in Australian Red Cedar

Australian graphics designer Josh Darrah is the man responsible for this rather stunning case mod, which saw him gut his iPod Mini and reassemble it in an Australian red cedar case with brass finishings.
Perhaps the most stunning feature, considering the fact that it is made from wood, is the perfectly carved wooden click wheel. The case was carved by hand with a little help from Darrah’s trusty Dremel, and he added an improvement to the mix in the form of an on-board iTrip FM transmitter.

Sony DVDirect VCD-MC6 lets you record HD video without a PC

Sony DVDirect VCD-MC6 lets you record HD video without a PC

In terms of form factor, the VRD-MC6 is roughly 60% smaller than the MC5, but has a 2.7-inch display as opposed to the old 2.5-inch version. The display can be used to preview videos and up to 6 JPEG files at a time. Carrying on with JPEG files, those stored on Memory Sticks, SDHC, xD, USB drives, Sony camcorders and digital photos, can all be written to DVD with the MC6 regularly or in slideshow format. Photos can also be used to create menu screens for video discs or users can choose from four preset backgrounds.

WiFi Hotspot Finder

WiFi Hotspot Finder

Want to find a WiFi signal quickly and simply? Grab a WiFi Hotspot Finder Keyring. With a range of 60 meters and the ability to detect 802.11b, 802.11b and 802.11g at a press of a button, there’d be no need to either sign spot or pull out your laptop and wander the streets aimlessly (lets face it, that’ll get you mugged). Four green LEDs indicate the strength of the signal, and there’s also a red LED to indicate no signal (I bet no lights would make you think the batteries had run out). The whole search apparently takes just two seconds of your time, which is much faster than booting up your laptop and praying.

Bike-Car looks pretty zoned out

Bike-Car looks pretty zoned out

this strange looking Bike-Car from Italy that looks as though it was conjured from the very same mind that thought up of the fictional Frankenstein? Clearly the designer was confused enough that he could not make up his mind as to design a motorbike or a car, ending up with this weird amalgamation. Hopefully there will be a detached version of this in the future, letting the bike disconnect from the car segment whenever one is faced with a traffic jam.

Tokyoflash NI Wristwatch is Confusing but oh so Clever

Analogue a little bit too steampunk for you? Digital too much like everyone else? Confuse and baffle everyone with the Tokyoflash NI. Instead of numbers (because that’d be easy right?) this watch uses coloured LEDs to tell the time. It’s basically a puzzle watch- count up the number of dots per row and you’ll work out the time. The person who asked will probably have found a clock by then, but at least you’ll get to look cool and feel a little bit smug…
