10 Minute Solution comes to the Wii

by Mark R

Some of you have probably heard of the 10 Minute Solution series of exercise DVDs. I mean, they have a Pilates version, Tone and Trouble Zone version, even one called Hot Body Boot Camp. (Shouldn’t it be called Hot Body Booty Camp? Just saying.) Anyway, Anchor Bay Entertainment, who makes these 10 Minute Solution videos, is planning on doing some business on the Wii as they are making a Wii …

Ultraslide: For speed skaters, golfers, and extreme exercisers

by Mark R

My wife loves to watch The Biggest Loser, but I really can’t stand it. I suppose that I should cheer these obese people while they lose weight, but like most reality shows, The Biggest Loser has so much unnecessary drama. The Biggest Loser also does a lot of very obvious product placement. On one episode, one of the trainers walks up to the contestants and talks about how Extra Sugar …

Two weeks ago, we reported on how electronic projections and digital technology was taking traditional board games to a whole new level. Now, old-school video games are being taken to a whole new level with Sportpong. Yes, you can’t get any more old school with video games than the classic Pong game with the paddles and squared ball. This Sportpong is definitely a more active game than Dance Dance Revolution …

Electronic Putting Trainer

Golf is a game where you often fight against yourself first before checking out your score with others. After all, there is nothing quite as satisfying as getting all those shots in with one nice, clean whack each time, but there are off days for some of us where nothing seems to go wrong even after following hundreds of dollars’ worth of advice from books and DVDs. Well, just like …

I love seeing DIY gadgets like these. Every time I see one, such as the Star Trek phaser, I can’t help but think: “how does one get the time to build these things?” I mean, I can barely keep up with my writing deadlines. Therefore, I will give my full congratulations to Bob Sawicki and Toby Weisser for using their weeknights and Sundays to build the snow chopper that you …

Hopefully you sang the title of this posting to the theme of the classic show The Greatest American Hero. If you don’t know the theme, watch a few episodes on Hulu, and then realize that “flying away on a wing and a prayer” is possible with the Kolelinia. It is the Kolelinia that makes it possible for this man in the picture to bike on a tightrope. A Kolelinia user …

Last night, at the first night of CES, Systemax, CA, and Intel teamed up to sponsor the 13th Annual Build Your Own PC Race for Charity. It was held at the Latour Ballroom at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas (right next to CES Showstoppers), and it was actually more spectacular than I ever thought it would be. When I got there, it was nothing but food and subtle party …

Golf Ball Launcher fires Titleists

by Mark R

I’m not the type who is really into golfing. Heck, I’ve never even hit a ball on the driving range. I can imagine that it must be difficult to hit a tiny ball on the ground with a small pole with a wedge on the end of it. I’m sure I would get frustrated with it really fast, and I would probably want to shoot something. (Something not alive, just …
