Remote Control Color Changing Lightbulb

The LED color changing light bulb fits into a standard light bulb socket. Inside are LED lights which can make any one of 16 different colors, all of which is controlled via a remote control. The light uses only 3 watts of electricity and can do such fancy tricks as flash, strobe, fade, smooth and dimming (which basically allows you to add a dimming bulb without having to install a dimmer switch in your wall).

TV Be Gone

TV B Gone Remote Control: Turn off any TV around you

This pocket sized remote control can switch off 99 per cent of TVs thanks to over 400 “off” sequences pre-programmed into the device. It works by shining pulses of invisible light that directs most TVs to turn off or on. You can use it in the office to control your boss’s TV, at home when the kids are fighting over reruns of Friends, at parties when people decide to pull out a Sandra Bullock film, and even at a restaurant when you can’t bear to hear 24 hours of weather forecasts anymore.

Kodak OLED Picture Frame

I voted for the OLED picture frame. The prices of these will be 1/4 of that by this time next year. The crappy digital photo frame days won’t last!

Amy Says: September 19, 2008 at 2:27 pm

I love the remote control color changing light bulb – it has been around for a while but I have always wanted one.

Jenna Says: September 19, 2008 at 5:48 pm

Sushi Saber hands down.
This perfectly combines two of my geek-nesses.

I’m rooting for the projector on this one. Anything that can produce VGA quality images while firmly held in my one hand deserves kudos in my book!

Jack M. Says: September 20, 2008 at 7:16 am

Mini projector. Now I’m just waiting for the mini price.

Skippy Says: September 20, 2008 at 4:22 pm

Gotta go for the underdog (no pun intended) of the OLED picture frame. Maybe they’ll be reasonably affordable some day.

I Eat Handheld Projectors.

Well, as far as the coolest gadget….. Going to have to say the mini projector. But and nearly $360, it won’t be in the budget of most people for a while. Plus the resolution is less than acceptable when compared to the current “Norm” for projectors. However, its sleek appearance and of course its size would be recognizably good traits. As far the average budget goes, the coolest gadget would have to be the Sushi-Saber. This culinary device is the ultimate snack making machine (and it looks very user friendly!) Cheers everyone, and who knows, a $50 Amazon voucher might be mine.

A mini projector embedded into and R2 robot. It’s all starting to fit together, soon.

Krysta Says: September 21, 2008 at 4:25 pm

I like the picture frame. It’s cool; I like pictures.

Jerry Says: September 22, 2008 at 1:05 pm

TV-Be gone =]

Keri Says: September 22, 2008 at 5:21 pm

The picture frame is cool but they are all so expensive.

Kristen Mogavero Says: September 23, 2008 at 1:45 pm

The remote control is a must, considering im a student surrounded by 1-2 tv’s in each classroom =]
