By far the coolest gadget here is the R/C Spy Video ATV-360. Now if it was silent it would be great to sneak up on people.

Juergen Says: October 17, 2008 at 1:09 pm

ATV-360 is coolest, no doubt. Sure, it’s easy to build your own from an RC tank and a radio-camera – but having a complete package, with head-mounted display, and cheap: Awesome.

Now, if they’d make a Wifi or 3G version of it… 😉

K-dron easily, something to do.

Jess Says: October 18, 2008 at 2:16 pm

I voted for the solar-powered ski jacket. I mean, it can charge its own avalanche beacon!

AlexB Says: October 19, 2008 at 8:40 am

The WoW mouse… well, it’s flashy… but I seriously doubt the 16 million choice of luminosity… who counted those?
Nonetheless, a definite must-buy if not only to show you’re 1337 Skillz 😉
