USB Microphone with direct monitor output.

by Andi

M-Audio recently revealed a new USB microphone. It’s got a pretty fancy name: M-Audio’s Session Music Producer microphone. What sets it apart from the pack is the embedded headphone jack, which allows its user to monitor the input without any delay. It’s known that all USB audio inputs have delays, and for some this might be a real benefit. At $99. it’s not as expensive as the other M-Audio USB …

by Edwin

Takara Tomy now targets ladies in their 20s with these colorful and chic 35mm plastic cameras better known as “Tolne”. I’m like a fish out of water when it comes to the Japanese language, but I do understand that “Tolne” is a play on the phrase “toru ne”, which means “I’m gonna take your picture, ok?”. Each $35 purchase comes with filter sets that enable you to throw in some …

One for the smokers: a cool vintage lighter!

by Andi

A few weeks ago, when ordering some motorcycle gear, I took a random look at the ‘Presents&co.’ section. There I found a lighter that caught my eye. Made of first-grade but vintage-looking brass, it’s a replica of those used by French soldiers in the first World War. It’s an inexpensive gadget which is always a pleasure to look at. You’ll see a bigger picture and a video after the break.

At first glance, this can of Campbells soup might look pretty ordinary, but it is actually a safe that lets you store your petty jewelry without making it look like a prime suspect during a burglary. This will probably be the last place the thief will want to check, unless he is famished and has a love for canned soup. You ought to be able to store a fair amount …

For nostalgic techies: Steampunk Watches

by Andi

Title punkwatch

There are pretty many fans of Steampunk, including me. Some die-hard fans have created modern tech disguised under Steampunk masks. Also, most of today’s watches are quite boring, and follow the same design line. A clean, simple bezel with a leather or metal armband, seamlessly fit most of the time. Some are nice to look at, the others are dedicated to just being practical. A Japanese company has decided to …

Absurd: The Giant Swiss Army Knife

by Andi

gigantic swiss army knife!

Even the Swiss are going crazy! Usually, a swiss army knife can be described by one short phrase: minimalistic and practical. This means that you get a bunch of useful functions out of a small and simple to use device. Well, now, the ‘small’ part seems to be totally out. How about 9 whole inches of width? Of course, there’s an awful lot of functions in there (85 fully functional …

The Bomba Alarm Clock… cutting-edge nostalgy!

by Andi

bomba clock tease

We’ve all seen a flip clock; on a desk, in a movie… those plain wooden or plasticky boxes with a lit ‘display’. The display was actually a set of little plates that moved every 1,10 or 60 minutes, showing the time. Dutch designer Will van den Vos thought that it was time to refresh it a little, and came to a good idea. The result? cool, desirable, visible if only …
