    Do you remember the Toylet, the bizarre video game system from Sega that can be placed inside urinals and allows you to control on-screen action with your pee? The Toylet's core elements are an LCD screen (placed above the urinal) and a speed sensor to track the "pressure level" of your stream. Read More

    The 4:20 Watch From Cadence

    Candence is a well-known watch brand that makes a number of clever timepieces for decent upstanding folks but I’m afraid I’m not longer going to be able to support these jokers and their new gateway watch that is rending the fabric of American society as we speak. You see these hipsters and dipsters running around the city these days and making noise and drinking their Lokos and you… Read More

    Colorfly's "Audiophile-Quality" Audio Player Is Made Of Wood

    I love audiophiles. They spend $20,000 on a high end speaker system with zero flibber and low Db to THD levels (at least that’s what it sounds like they’re telling you) and then they slap on a gold remaster of a Macy Gray album and say “Can you hear the gravel in her voice?” It’s like buying a Ferrari just to slip Frankie Goes To Hollywood into the CD player and then… Read More

    This Can't Possibly Work: "Hoverbike"-Style Dual-Rotor Flying Machine

    I can't be the only one who has doubts about the safety of this particular setup. The creator, an Australian (naturally) by the name of Chris Malloy, claims it'll be able to fly at 173 MPH at 3000 feet. Yeah, I can see that — if you can get to that height without flipping over or falling off the thing after hitting a pocket of turbulent air. Read More

  • Up Close With The Uber-Expensive Ulysse Nardin Chairman Phone

    Last week I got the chance to play with the Ulysse Nardin Chairman, a goofy, expensive phone with a small, built-in mechanical rotor for manual winding. I interviewed the head of UN's cell division, Paul Williams, about his experience building the phone as well as his background at Nokia's Vertu line. The phone will run Android and will be available next year. If anything can be said of this phone… Read More
