Gears of War Lancer Rifle Replicas

It appears the Gears of War franchise is bigger than I thought as I found not one, but two products that are Gears of War related today.

First is the Gears of War themed Zune, which not only sports specially designed graphics on the frame, but it comes pre-loaded with 240 pieces of Gears of War and its sequel’s media including “the original game soundtrack, behind-the-scenes videos, game trailers, concept art galleries, and more”. All of this content is exclusive to this Microsoft MP3 Player.

Of course, if you really want to live Gears of War, you can always purchase the Lancer rifle, a virtual prop from the game now turned real. As you can see by the fake blood on the saw edge of this, this is no children’s toy. However, it does have one fun feature as it can vibrate, and even has a chainsaw sound.

The Gears of War 2 game is slated for release on November 7th, and this is the same day the Gears of War Zune is planned to be released. It should be about $280 for this special edition.

As for the Lancer rifle, it costs about $140, or $210 with a limited edition of Gears of War 2. It should be available sometime next month.

Big Screen on the Pocket Projector

Firebox’s Pocket Cinema is rather tiny, but it packs a big punch (not to mention a hefty price tag). But for about $523 USD, business people can not only enjoy a pocket sized projector to use for business meetings, it can project an image from it’s high powered LED screen up to 50 inches wide.

But that isn’t all …

Playing information from SD cards up to 1 gigabyte in size, the Pocket Cinema can also play stereo audio either through its A/V out headphone jack or the built in stereo speakers. Playback controls include a powerbutton, focus wheel, fast forward or rewind (forwards/backwards), menu and entry/OK.

Pocket Cinema is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, can play back MPEG4 ASF or MJPEG AVI (recommended) file formats, and can convert just about any other video format using the included ArcSoft media software. It can connect through its A/V in/out plug to everything from VCRs to game consoles to DVD players. It’ll even play back video from an iPod with an optional dedicated iPod A/V cable.

The Pocket Cinema is not only great for business meetings, but also parties, and even impromptu outdoor movie nights. But for movies, you’ll want to bring along a few extra batteries due to its really short battery life.

Includes tripod and remote control.

Searching Online Can help your Brain get stronger

According to latest results set to be published on the American Journal for Geriatric Psychiatry, Internet searches can actually help strengthen the aging brain - thanks to the greater mental "activity" that it undergoes while waiting for the search results and the following "scan".

Studies in the past have shown that any mentally tasking act has the capability to change the way the brain responds to the task. This is known to create a "mental reserve" that comes in handy when the brain is subjected to insult and injury. Additionally, this increase in the mental reserve is reportedly capable of lessening the effects of the inevitable - mental aging.

A recent research conducted to verify these claims threw in some interesting results. Expensive MRI equipments were used to monitor the cranial activity of two sets of people: Internet regulars and novices. As for on what basis the teams have been classified in to "regulars" and novices", regulars were those who went online at least once daily, while the novices were the ones who have never been online or use the Internet once or twice in a month.

Tired of RC Stuff? I bet you will like this for sure

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn’t that spectacular although it was by no means a failure when it comes to box office receipts. Here’s a toy to help you relive more tense moments of the movie.

Use the powers of the crystal skull remote to control the fearsome ant. Scurries and moves like a super-sized version of the real thing. Terrorize your family and friends with its scissor-action mandible!

Would be nice if this was accompanied by a crystal skull mask or toy in order to complete the intended effect. You will need to spare plenty of AA batteries to keep the $34.98 Indiana Jones Giant Radio Controlled Ant going.

Monkeys as Waiters - Strange Restuarant

You expect to see something a little strange from time to time while traveling through Asia, but one establishment has something to really shock you.

Kayabuki, a Japanese tavern in Utsunomiya, recently employed 2 Macaques monkeys to act as waiters. Fuku is 12 years-old and Yat is a young 4 years of age and both seem to enjoy their new work.

Kaoru Otsuka, owner of the tavern, says the 2 monkeys are their household pets, but one day he noticed one of them mimicking a waiter by giving the customer a hot towel in the restaurant. Mr. Otsuka thought it would be an interesting idea to have them actually serve the customers.

Mammals facing Threat of Extinction

According to a survey 25% of the mammals are on the verge of extinction. The Red List of Threatened Species says populations of more than half of mammalian species are falling, with Asian primates particularly at risk. The main cause of this due to the deforestation. Red list for the current year checked with 5,487 mammals and out of this 1,141 are identified to be on the very verge to disappearance.

The Red List is published approximately once every year. Although designed as the definitive global list of threatened species, in practice the rankings come from assessments covering different types of plants and animals, and some areas of the list will be more up to date than others.

USB Drive filled with BEER

Let’s say that you’ve run out of beer and for some awful reason you can’t go get more. What could possibly taunt you more than a beer filled USB drive? I swear it would not surprise me in the least to see a news bulletin somewhere, where a guy decided to try to suck the beer out of his USB drive. It’d likely start with one guy either daring or offering up some small fund to do it, like a dollar. It really wouldn’t take much for someone to do it. Well luckily there are no links to actually purchase this USB drive, instead it is just an example of all the cool things a certain company can do with USB drives.The company can not only fill your USB drive with liquid but add little objects to the mix. Like a car for a racing company. Basically, those cheesy pens that the top of them was filled with liquid have now been replaced with these USB drives. Well, I suppose it had to happen eventually. If you feel the need to create liquid filled USB drives with your company name stamped on them just follow the link to find out more info.

Nokia's Headset Design Contest

If you’re tired of having the same old boring headphones, then you’ll love the new Nokia contest going on. They’ve decided to have a contest where designers enter cool headsets that definitely are outside of the box. Which means you get to check out all of the bizarre, but fun designs. Some are very cool but when you consider that Nokia will be creating some of them, they just seem a bit over the top. Like the odd set of headphones shown here. Yes, I agree that they make for a pretty picture, but I’m not putting those on my head.

The top five designers will see their designs being created and sold. The nice thing is that you get to vote on the designs, so if the over the top designs are too much for you just vote for the simpler designs and there are some of those too. However, if you’re ready to see headphones take a more artistic plunge then of course you can lean towards the eccentric styles. The contest just started and will actually run until the end of the year. Anyone can enter and hopefully you’ll still be able to enter your odd designs if you’re up for the challenge. You can check out the voting here.
