EyeClops Bio Cam For Kids

May 10th, 2009 No comments

I got Lasik about 4 years ago and it was one of the best decisions. I can see so clearly without contact lens or eye glasses. However, I did not get the 400x Zoom package procedure done to see into objects at the micro level. Well, at least now I can get the EyeClops Bio Cam to let me do that. Actually, it’s probably more suited to entertain and educate kids.

It runs on five AA batteries (not included) that are inserted into the blet clip battery pack. You also use the included USB memory ontop of the BioniCam to store videos and pictures.

The camera has an ergonomically shaped handle for long hours of fun. You can focus ona number of everyday objects like clothing, fur, hair, soil. EyeClops then shows you the images in real time and full color on your LCD screen. You can also use the menus on the screen to manage your video and photos.

The zoom dial works in either 100x, 200x or 400x magnification modes. You focus on an image by twisting the I.R.I.S. lens attachment until everything is in perspective. It does take some practice mostly due to shakes of your hand, but afterwards, you’ll be focusing soon.

Rubik’s Cube For A New Generation

February 24th, 2009 No comments


That classic 80s time-waster, the Rubik’s Cube, is back. Actually, it never went anywhere but this version of the 3-D puzzle has been re-imagined for a new generation. The Rubik’s TouchCube, developed by toymaker Techno Source, responds to a simple touch of your fingers rather instead of requiring you to turn parts of the cube. (Kind of like when the Wheel of Fortune set got revamped.) If that upgrade isn’t good enough for you, the new cube also gives out hints if you’re really stumped. The TouchCube is expected to cost about $150 when it hits stores this fall. Hey, this time around, you might actually solve this thing.

MindFlex - Mind Control

MindFlex - Mind Control

Do you remember Professor X-Avier, Jean Grey/The Pheonix, and even Magneto from X-Men world? Do you know what they all have in common? They can manipulate things with their minds. We normal beings can’t do that. Or can we?

Well, meet Mattels forthcoming “Mindflex”, which lets you come one step closer to those special abilities. It is a lightweight headset containing sensors for the forehead and earlobes measures your brainwave activity. You control a small foam ball to rise on gentle stream of air by concentration. When you have relaxed thoughts, the ball descends. The objective is to guide the ball through a series of customizeable obstacles.

You can challenge your friends and family to see who can manipulate the ball the fastest and more accurate. This device has the potential to revolutionize gaming much like the Nintendo Wii did. Furthermore, it can also have medical applications for the physically challenged.

Declare War on your Office Mates with a USB Cannon.

February 1st, 2009 No comments

A lot of people complain about their jobs.  Many say that their job has just lost its appeal, and has become monotonous and boring.  Maybe it’s time you spiced things up a little bit in the office with a USB cannon.

The USB cannon plugs right into the USB port of your PC or laptop.  Load the cannon with nerf darts, and press the appropriate command on your computer to shoot the darts up to 10 feet!  No longer must you deal with Wanda’s pervasive giggling about funny animal pictures two cubicles away.  A simple pop! on the noggin with a nerf dart should shut her right up for the day.  Three cubicles down, Jim is listening to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” for the 5th time this morning.  A thwap! with the nerf dart should spare you from the rockin’ 80’s  for the rest of the morning.

And you thought work was boring…

Megatech Missile Launcher Green R/C

January 27th, 2009 No comments

Have you ever felt like shooting a missile over to your co-worker’s cubical or roomate? The USB tank is controlled on your laptop or PC and from there you can steer as well as make it shoot at whichever target you like. The little missiles will be great to take out anyone causing trouble. You can even change the angle it shoots, for those times when your target is up high.

The USB toys can shoot 12 feet and you can control four different tanks at once. Which is far better than all of the missile launchers that just sit on your desk and don’t even chase anyone down. Sadly, there’s bad news for Mac users that don’t feel like running Windows. You have to be running Windows 2000, XP or Vista for this to work. They have a video showing the tank being operated and it’s incredibly simple.
