First, I doubt this is an officially licensed Disney product. Something tells me Brando doesn’t have that kind of pull. Second, this thing is $52. I’m pretty sure you can buy a cheap webcam and put a mirror next to it for the same price. Third, wouldn’t this look great next to my Beanie Babies? Like totally! I could put Weenie and Tiny on both side of it, like protective lions! → Read More
Boy, I remember the days of play spy gear in the past. Crappy motion detectors, fingerprint kits that were nothing more than flour and tape, and mirrored sunglasses — never anything like this. And I remember thinking, too, when Ethan Hunt had those camera-glasses in the first “Mission: Impossible,” I scoffed, thinking yeah right, there’s no way. Now, a mere decade later (actually that’s… → Read More
There are a few areas of concern to point out about this $24 “USB Paw Heating Slipper” from Brando. For starters, you’re sticking both your feet into one giant slipper. What happens if you get an e-mail saying that there’s free bagels in the break room? In your haste to save $2, you could very easily trip and fall down. → Read More
I knew when I got to the Neighborhood watch meeting last week, that guy from down on the corner was talking about me again. I saw him outside, standing next to his car. Of course I take security a little more seriously then the rest of the people who just like to *say* that are protecting our neighborhood. Next time though, I’ll be able to hear him. I just bought the new Spy Monocular & Long… → Read More
And now to finally get to the bottom of WHO DRANK MY LAST TAB?! This unassuming little clock tells the time and tells you who’s been breaking into your house at night to eat multiple peanut butter, lettuce, and pastrami sandwiches. It’s definitely not you sleepwalking. → Read More

This here is called the “Flashlight Speed Holster with Battery Compartment,” brought to you by the good people at Brando. According to the product description, “This Revolutionary Holster allows operators to increase the draw speed of a flashlight!” → Read More
Behold! A small step forward in multimedia speakers! This one has a built-in 4.5-inch LCD screen and it only costs $99. According to the product description, the screen is a “high definition color display.” According to me, that’s dead wrong. But who cares? It’s a screen built into a speaker! Hurray! → Read More

In the Old West a man was defined by his hat. Stetson, Ten-Gallon, and Bowler were only three of the myriad hats available to a real man and these hats often stank of pomade and sweat and were frequently infested with lice and caked in a fine crust of dandruff. The Old West totally sucked.
Well look at this, it’s a combination Multi-touch touchpad and a plain ol’ numeric keypad. (Years from now, when we’re all using laptops, or, I guess, touchscreen interfaces, kids will ask, “What’s a keypad?”) It’s from Brando, if you had any doubts at all as to who makes it. → Read More
It’s a big day for fancy headwear. First we have the sleek and stylish UFO Cap, now we have this ridiculous hat-brim-solar-fan contraption, and the PS3 Slim is small enough that you could conceivably equip it with a chinstrap and wear it.
But would it keep you cool? Not like this one, my friend. Not like this one. → Read More
OK IT’S TIME FOR BRANDO TIME AGAIN! Good friend give you a clock! Don’t think it’s a pinhole camera with remote! Don’t! You will be a fool to think so! Don’t worry!
I’d love to be a fly on the wall during one of Brando’s product development sessions. This product, for instance, is a folding credit card-sized “light bulb” that appears to be nothing more than a little LED shining upward against some sort of translucent plastic. → Read More

The last thing I hocked for Brando was a 70-LED video light, and I still recommend it. But it looks like they’re hot for budget photography gear, since now they’ve got this big flash accessory kit for $88 that includes pretty much everything you’d want to stick on that Speedlite. Diffusers, colored filters, honeycombs, everything. Very fancy.
It’s not something for the amateur shooter, but if you… → Read More
Oh Brando, cashing in on Michael Jackson’s untimely death? You’re better than that, Brando.
At any rate, the Thriller Skull Phone is an old-timey standard phone in the shape of a skull with blue LEDs for eyes that light up when the phone rings. → Read More

For all the fluff that generally pours out of Brando’s website, there’s always a diamond in the rough here and there. This one seems to be more diamond than rough. It’s basically an adapter that turns any 3.5- or 2.5-inch hard drive into an HD video player for your TV. It’ll also push out files from SD cards and USB thumb drives as well. → Read More
Behold a USB flash drive that also doubles as a simple MP3 player. You supply your own microSD card, actually, so maybe think of this as a $16 memory-less MP3 player that doubles as a USB flash drive. → Read More
