Review of the Swissbit, S.Beat 1Gb MP3 Player

One of the cool things about running a gadget site is we always have tax deductible excuse to buy stuff and one of the even cooler things is we often get sent stuff to play with review for free.

Traveler Digital Camera DC-5080 (5MP with webcam support)

For the last one week, I was eyeing on this new model of Traveler digital camera from Germany. For some reason, it caught my interest when I was shopping at Aldi, when they announced a product to be released this week. The Traveler Digital Camera DC-5080 has a 5-megapixel, sufficiently large enough to take really good quality pictures. In addition, the 1.7-inch LCD colour display allows you to see more clearly. Also, it comes with a 4x-digital zoom, which somewhat I feel it would be better if it were to be an optical zoom instead.

Cardboard Box Speakers

I’m not too sure what the point of these is but they still look pretty cool, speakers that come in a box that you then take out of the box and make into a box. We thought it sounded strange too.

Before my Sinclair Spectrum, Lego was my all time favourite toy. Even my Lego train-set was cool, in fact there wasn’t a single thing that I couldn’t make (when I was 7). Why am I going on about a toy that must be at least 50 years old? Today I saw a picture of a … Read more

Virtual Air Guitar

If you thought grown men looked pretty stupid when seen playing air guitar you ain’t seen nothing yet.

A bunch of students at the Helsinki University of Technology must of felt sorry for air guitarists with their lack of sound so have invented the first virtual air guitar.

The way the air guitar works is the guitarist (if you can call him (or her) that) dons a pair of highly fashionable orange gloves and then strums the air as if they are the next Ry Cooder or Slash. Normally when you’re doing this activity you probably wouldn’t want to be filmed, but that isn’t an option for the virtual air guitarist.
