  • This Chocolate Drone Will Fly Directly Into Your Distended Belly

    This Chocolate Drone Will Fly Directly Into Your Distended Belly

    Look: you and I both know what’s going on here. This is either a viral ad for Milka or a riff on Üter Zörker at the Springfield Chocolate Factory but let’s retract our marketing antennae for a moment and just revel in the idea: this is video of a quadcopter made of chocolate. The body is made of chocolate. The motors, obviously, are metal and the propellers plastic, but the rest… Read More

  • Chocomize Now Shipping To The UK, Potentially My Belly

    Chocomize Now Shipping To The UK, Potentially My Belly

    We first wrote about Chocomize not realizing the importance of disruption in the bespoke chocolate space. After trying a sample of their produce today at the New York Tech Day, however, I’ve decided that this is probably the best start up in the whole world, barring that one that lets you connect with friends and family and share photos and stuff. And also that other one with the birds. Read More

    As part of high-end watch forum ThePuristS.com’s 10th anniversary, MB&F will offer a (more) limited edition version of their Horological Machine No. 3 “The Frog” watch called “The Chocolate Frog.” MB&F is really rewarding their fans and early adopters with this move.

    Chocri brings you CreateMyChocolate.com

    What better way to enjoy your customized dress shirt than to nibble on your customized chocolate bar? I mean, you’re wearing a nearly one-of-a-kind shirt, why should you be burdened with the same chocolate bars devoured by all the other chumps in Abercrombie shirts? Chocri has you covered with CreateMyChocolate.com. You want white chocolate with banana chips and blueberries? Sure! Or… Read More

  • New Japanese toy: Endless chocolate bar breaker

    New Japanese toy: Endless chocolate bar breaker

    Do you like the feeling you get when you break a chocolate bar in half? Do you want to experience that feeling over and over for some reason? Then you’re in the target group for a new Japanese toy called Mugen Chokoreeto [JP], which (kind of) translates back to “Endless Chocolate Bar”. It’s the brainchild of major Japanese toymaker Bandai. It’s essentially a mini… Read More

  • The LG Chocolate is now official!

    The LG Chocolate is now official!

    The LG Chocolate is now official. (That sound you just heard is the sound of millions of people breathing a sigh of relief.) The specs are, in fact, the same as those found in that leaked promo video from a few days ago. Read More

  • Video: The LG Chocolate returns, this time with a multi-touch screen

    This here video shows the new edition of the LG Chocolate, the fine-for-what-it-is cellphone that placates the I’m-not-spending-$300-on-a-phone crowd. It officially goes by the name of the LG Chocolate BL40, and it’s “coming soon,” probably around August, probably on Verizon Wireless. Probably, probably, probably. Read More

  • Unboxing the Swiss chocolate iPhone

    [photopress:IMGP5667.JPG,full,pp_image] So a mysterious package landed in the TC/CG office just now and Erick came on over and showed us a Swiss chocolate iPhone that was meant for Bossman Arrington. It’s huge and quite tasty. I just have one question, though. What direction is “O”? Oh, and sorry, Mike, but we’ve already eaten half of it. Want us to send it… Read More

  • LG releases Blue Ice Chocolate

    LG releases Blue Ice Chocolate

    The Chocolate is still around? Looks like it. LG has released a brand new Choco in Blue Ice. It’ll be available next Friday, December 7 for the low, low price of $79.99. That is all. Press Release Read More

  • Sony Ericsson is now a chocolatier?

    Sony Ericsson is now a chocolatier?

    Okay, not really, but take a look at the portable Bluetooth speaker MBS-100 and tell me it doesn’t look like one of those orange flavored chocolate balls. Yeah, there are plenty of alternatives on the market for portable Bluetooth speakers that don’t look like food, but you could reel in a fatty or a hottie with this thing. It’s fairly lightweight at 225g and boasts more… Read More

  • LG VX8550: The Chocolate Strikes Again, Does Better This Time

    LG VX8550: The Chocolate Strikes Again, Does Better This Time

    Verizon Wireless have no reason for iPhone envy now that the new version of the LG Chocolate is here, the LG VX8550. LG listened to our numerous complaints regarding the original Chocolate’s lame touch-sensitive buttons and has replaced the navigation “buttons” with a click wheel-like interface. So no more swearing up and down to get the phone to cooperate. Other… Read More

  • Slimmer, Lighter Chocolate For Summer

    Slimmer, Lighter Chocolate For Summer

    Oh Verizon Wireless, this is how you fight back against the iPhone-and-AT&T-the-old-Cingular juggernaut? With two new LG Chocolate phones? For shame, Verizon, for shame. But, if you’ve got a contract you aren’t willing to break for a shiny new iPhone, there are worse options than picking up a Chocolate. And on July 9 you’ll have a choice of two new colors: Black Cherry… Read More

  • LG KU580: Like the Chocolate, Only With Real Internet Capabilities

    LG KU580: Like the Chocolate, Only With Real Internet Capabilities

    One of the many, many problems with the LG Chocolate is its crappy Internet capabilities. While not a Chocolate-proper cellphone, the LG KU580 borrows the iconic cellphone’s look and feel while adding competent Internet capabilities. It’s 3G, UMTS to be exact, so you’ll be able to surf the mobile Web with ease. You’ll also find several built-in Google apps like Gmail… Read More

  • Touch Sensitive Paper

    Touch Sensitive Paper

    Blow up doll connoisseurs rejoice! A new wave of touchable tech is just around the bend.
    A team of Swedish scientists have created paper embedded with metallic particles that, when touched, complete a circuit which produces a recorded sound. The sound is played via small electromagnets
    embedded in the paper. The aim for now is to apply this technology into packaging. However, more… Read More

  • LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    It’s either a phone made for drunks or for people who pretend they’re fancy, like our very own John here. It’s the LG Wine phone (or the LG-SV300) and, aside from the picture of a wine bottle and glass on the phone’s screen, I cannot figure out why it’s called the Wine. The Prada phone makes sense, as does the Shine, and the Chocolate I can understand to a point… Read More

    Recreate the Frozen Han Solo With Chocolate

    It’s what you’ve been waiting for ever since you saw Han Solo frozen in carbonite: a step-by-step procedure on how to make you very own chocolate bar mold of him. You’ll need an action figure of Han Solo, cooking chocolate, and the ability to decipher the clear as mud directions. This, perhaps more than anything else I’ve seen lately, is an example of why sound grammar… Read More

    CrunchLunch: Chocolate Gadget Goodness

    We all love getting the latest, greatest electronic. I mean who doesn’t love unboxing a brand new Blackberry 8800 or HDTV? It’s almost as if the only way these objects could get any sweeter would be if you turned them into…chocolate! Yes, thanks to “Corporate Gift Showcase” and its lovely line of custom chocolate molds, you can now be eating a solid… Read More

  • The Futurist: Where All These Cell Phone Names Are Taking Us

    The Futurist: Where All These Cell Phone Names Are Taking Us


    Mark this down in the “Obvious” bin: more and more cell phones are using real names in recent years. It was only a few years ago that virtually every cell phone was identified by a serial number-esque stream of numbers and letters that, while I’m sure they made plenty of sense to a company’s on-hand staff of engineers and marketing pros, were more likely to leave… Read More

  • LG Chocolate To Get Windows Mobile Treatment

    LG Chocolate To Get Windows Mobile Treatment

    Talk about coming out of left field. LG’s Chocolate phone has become the new “must have” phone for Verizon customers. It even released the Chocolate in holiday colors, and we all know that when you start re-releasing a phone in multiple colors: it’s officially trendy. But in a surprise move, LG is going to start manufacturing a Chocolate with Windows Mobile 5.0 on… Read More
