Tetris Link – From the Virtual World to Your Tabletop?

by Julie

Having just left the crazy and chaotic word of the Toy Fair in NYC, I am still reeling from the experience. Not to mention the cost of parking. I would have to say that it was not the high tech world I envisioned, although there were some exceptions, the trend seems to lean toward, shall we say, more grounded play? Enter Tetris Link, coming to you live from almost every …

Tony Sale’s 60-year-old Robot, George

by Mark R

The guy on the left is Tony Sale, and he is the inventor of George, the guy on the right. George is a robot that is made from the aluminum and other scraps of a crashed bomber sixty years ago.

Joytron Singibigi, Old School in more ways than one

by Mark R

joytron_singibigi_cg

What I like about the Joytron Singibigi is that it is very much old school. Not only does it bring back the days when video game controllers were actual joysticks, and buttons were concave and very big, but it brings back the wooden look.

Sega Mega Drive Twin Player Console

by Edwin

sega-twin-console

Video gamers have this thing about retro games, and more often than not, they don’t mind going back to the good old days once in a while and indulge in a little bit of nostalgia, where pixelated graphics ruled the day and the gameplay experience coupled with an overactive imagination proved to work better than just flashy graphics. For those who missed out on Sega’s heydays as a home console …

Sanyo ALBO is retro-futuristic digital picture frame

by Mark R

I can’t help but think that Sanyo’s newest digital phone frame, the ALBO, sounds like a major brand of dog food. As far as I know, ALBO isn’t a fancy acronym for something, but it is one of the coolest digital picture frames that I have ever seen. Considering that there is currently a huge market for digital picture frames now, that is saying something. The seven-inch LCD frame has …
