Amphibious R/C Tank

I’m something of a fan of remote control toys and this has got to be one of the coolest I’ve seen, the Amphibious R/C Tank. At first I thought it was another R/C beer can transporter (which it can be in land mode) but when the tank hits the water the wheels fold up into the can holders, cool! Oh and it also shoots BB bullets. Check the video after the jump to see it in action.

Global Warming Mug – $12.95

This worryingly relevant mug-with-a-message is adorned with a map of the world. Which is nice. What isn’t particularly nice is what happens when you fill the mug with a hot drink.

USB Engagement Ring

USB Engagement Ring

Nothing says “I love you” more than the USB engagement ring. Actually, nothing says “I’m too cheap to afford a real diamond ring, but I put a creative twist on this tradition” more than the USB engagement ring.

I always did find it odd that tradition that girls wear an engagement ring that may or may not have this really expensive rock that the groom has to take out a muy expensivo loan for. Why not invest a small amount of money in something a lot more practical?

With a USB engagement ring, you can download some cool stuff onto the drive. I suppose you can download a picture of the groom on one knee proposing, and then show it to anyone with a laptop. Personally, I think there is a lot of reasons to store valuable data on your ring. After all, I won’t easily lose my wedding ring, as I would a thumb drive.

Red Hot Laser Show Brings the Fun Home

Red Hot Laser Show

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy laser shows. I’ve seen some that are pretty impressive, and some that were just a random collection of colored lights. However, I don’t need too much lasers to fill my cup of excitement, so the Red Hot Laser Light Show might be for me.

I’m not saying that this product is inferior, but it is advanced for the price you will pay. As you can see, someone went to a lot of trouble to make the casing as flamed as possible, and painted it a lovely shade of Diablo red. I swear that shade of red belongs only on hot sports cars, and it really makes this laser projector shine even when it is turned off.

When it is turned on, it shines an assortment of random shapes across your walls and ceilings that include red circles, spheres, and lines. I am told there is even a sound responsive mode, so the lasers will shape themselves according to the ambient noise. I’m also told that it can work outdoors, but I’m guessing you need some surface to project the lasers on.
