Hovering Drones - Miami police Department

This 16lb drone, called the Honeywell MAV (Micro Air Vehicle), is a pilotless flying vehicle loaded with infra red and optical sensors.

Juan Villalba of the Miami Dade Police Department told Reuters that "Our intentions are to use it only in tactical situations as an extra set of eyes" – a kind of snake-o-scope to help SWAT teams see around corners.

We doubt it. The drone is set to go live in the Everglades, which makes us think that these things will be buzzing around searching for drug smugglers and other ne'er-do-wells.

The first pictures from the G.I. Joe movie (coming out next year) were just released and they give us the first small glimpse into the design of the characters. From the looks of Snake Eyes above, the filmmakers are going for a Batman Begins, realistic gritty-cool look, rather than a Batman Forever trip-candy cartoon crap look.

And if you mention that this isn't technically a gadget, then you didn't blow up your G.I. Joe toys when you were a kid, or used them as eating utensils, or played with them as table tennis pads, or pretended to speak to them while your parents weren't paying attention. Because that's what every kid I knew did back in the day.

Metal Gear Solid on Mobile

metal gear solid mobile game

If you love Metal Gear Solid, then you have every excuse to chuck your old phone with your old service provider out the office window because Verizon Wireless now offers its customers access to the all-new Metal Gear Solid mobile game. Released exclusively for the carrier’s handsets, the latest offering from Konami Digital Entertainment has been coded by the same team responsible for the console version of the title with the storyline of the new 3D mobile title set somewhere between Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2. Players in the mobile version will be able to control the main Snake character from either the first or third-person perspective, and will be able to take a photo with their camera phone and incorporate that into Snake’s camouflage. An online leader board system will let you compare your performance with other gamers and you can get your hands on the cool mobile game through Verizon’s “Get It Now” download store on the carrier’s handsets.

Fool your friend with this - APRIL FOOL SPECIAL

Phantom Keystroker

I’m a bit of a prankster at times, especially when it comes to friend’s computers. My favorite gag is to take a screenshot of their desktop, hide their icons, then replace their background with said snapshot. You’d be surprised at how long it can take some people to catch on to the ruse. Needless to say, I love this Phantom Keystroker.

This little gadget needs only to be plugged into the back of someone’s PC. After a designated amount of time, it will begin moving the cursor around and typing random text. Those with little computer knowledge will freak out and think someone is hacking their computer and stealing their identity, while tech-savvy people will believe that a friend has jokingly taken remote control of their PC. Only after everyone is crowded around their desk will they realize that it must be something else. At $24.99 it makes for a cheap laugh.

R2D2 of Starwars is a Trashcan - MUST SEE

R2D2 Trash Can

And around $100, it may be the most expensive too! But come on, it’s R2D2, man! The only thing that would make this cooler is if it doubled as a trash compactor with swiss army knife attachments.

From Urban Outfitters:

“Remember when Luke and Leia and the gang were stuck in that trash-compactor aboard the Death Star? And the walls were closing in and there was some kind of gross muck monster down there and everything? Well, remember how R2D2 hacked into the computer system and stopped the contractor from crushing everyone, saving the day like a little robot hero? Pretty awesome, right? But you know what the moral of that story was? R2D2 knows how to handle some trash!”


It’s the perfect addition to that Star Wars themed room you have. Especially if it’s a home theater. Made of durable vinyl construction, the R2 trash can is 24-inches high, and you open R2’s head by stepping on his center “foot.” A removable interior bucket makes taking out the trash easy – although, come on, why doesn’t the “well put together” astromech droid empty himself?
But it doesn’t really need to be just for trash. This R2 unit can also become the coolest drink cooler of all time. Just fill with Ice and the drink of your choice. And if you can attach R2 to iRobot’s Developers Kit Robot, you’ll have R2 serving bar like from Return of the Jedi!

High-tech luau - GOD Speaker

Somewhere, on a hidden island where stereos are worshipped, the natives are dancing a fiery, ritualistic dance to the MiniGod.

Okay, that’s not really happening, but it certainly looks like it should be. I mean, look at this MiniGod thing! It looks like it should be a prop at a high-tech luau. Its style is reminiscent of the Jetsons (especially with the ring around its neck) mixed with that CG movie Robots. That is, if Robots had been a darker, scarier movie. (Actually, it could be if you stopped and thought about it. I mean, it was a world inhabited by robots, for crying out loud. What happened to the humans?)

Believe it or not, these MiniGod Speakers require only a 9 volt battery for operation, then hook up with a computer or stereo system. You can also hook up to an iPod, and then you’ll have yourself a little amplification.

These MiniGod speakers are about 15 inches tall, and are actually available in a few different models and color combinations.

If you want them, you had better come and get them, because they are only available for a limited time. You should be able to find them with a quick search on eBay, for a going rate of about $120.

Asus M571 USB flash drive - Also a Mouse

The Asus M571 USB flash drive might look like a standard USB flash drive at first glance, but upon closer inspection, you will realize that it is actually a USB flash drive that doubles up as a wireless mouse as well. Unfortunately, I don’t think the form factor of this mouse is easy on your hands - just take a look at the awful, thin design! It will definitely introduce RSI to you faster than expected if this is a long term navigation solution. I guess this mouse will come in handy only during emergencies when your notebook’s touchpad has lost its…well, touch. Other features include a scroll wheel and a magnetic locking mechanism that connects the transmitter for charging purposes. No idea on its capacity and pricing as at press time.

Wireless Network Adaptor for XBOX 360

Tripping over a roomful of TV, DVD, Digital TV decoder, the home theater and Xbox 360 cords will soon become a thing of the past as the Xbox 360 now comes with a wireless adapter which connects to the console via a USB port. The whole thing takes less than five minutes to set up and less tedious an effort than having to leap around the entire place with RJ45 cables, connectors, and power strips!

Powered by a Lithium-Polymer battery, flights of 10+ minutes can be achieved on a single 30 minute charge from the controller.
