NZXT announces Phantom chassis for gaming enthusiasts

If you’re a hardcore computer gamer, chances are you love building up your very own rig from the ground up. After all, it gives you full control of what you want to see underneath the hood, and you won’t have to limit yourself to the whims and fancies of the hardware manufacturer itself. It often involves a lot of money though, so it could turn out to be a rather expensive hobby if you are one who likes to keep up with the times. While the internal parts are extremely important, more and more people are coming to realize that the chassis of the machine itself is also of importance – after all, it decides just how much stuff you can cram in there elegantly, while making your living room or workspace look good simultaneously. NZXT knows this, making them proud to announce the Phantom, their most elegant and intelligent chassis design to date.

Mr. Clock tells time, only when you look at it

Mr.Clock_Hye-yeon.park_Design Product_2010 RCA from hye-yeon.park on Vimeo.

We are no stranger to very cool clocks here on Coolest Gadgets. We just covered the Alessi Blank Wall Clock yesterday.

This clock is just as personal, but not in the sense that you can draw on it. As you can see in the video, the clock will only show the time when people are looking at it.

Granted, I have no idea how it knows whether or not anyone is looking at it, but it will give the correct time. If you aren’t looking at it, you will see nothing but some incongruous lines.

XCOR Aerospace Lynx spacecraft accepting pre-orders for space tours

I think we all know that the future is going to bring us space-travel tourism. Virgin Galactic has that Spaceport America coming very soon, and there is that fairly interesting Spaceship 2.

This is XCOR Aerospace’s Lynx spacecraft. It looks smaller than what Sir Richard Branson from Virgin is working on. The Lynx first showed up in 2008, and they are now taking pre-orders for the first flight, which is expected to be unveiled in 2012.

This metal puzzle is actually a gun!

I don’t know if we have any readers that are TSA employees, but if they are, then don’t let this on the plane!

This is because that this is not an ordinary puzzle. This is assuming that a puzzle with 125 parts is “normal”. Personally, I think I would have a heck of a time solving it.

However, you should know that this particular puzzle has about 20 pieces that can form a single-shot .45 handgun.

Hands-free WristOffice

The iPhone 4 antenna issue has put 3rd party gadget companies into a frenzy.  Apple’s screw up means that they have an opportunity to profit off of it with accessories promising to solve the problem.  However, the ones created that were only capable of taking care of that singular problem might not do so well now that Apple has started to ship free bumpers.  This particular accessory was a little smarter about things though.  It can actually be used for more than just the iPhone 4.
