The Jack PC.

The Jack PC. Dude, this has got to be the thinnest thin client in the thin lovin’ thin universe. Basically we’re talking a PC in a wall socket. Funky-licious! AMD 500MHz processor, juice from Power over Ethernet, 128 MB RAM, Windows CE, 5W heat and power consumption, Citrix thin client software. Totally client-server though, so forget about local processing of any meaningful kind. Still…Priced at around $299.00.

Fujifilm Strobe light kit.

The Fujifilm Underwater Strobe Kit.

Steamer.

The Hudspith Steam Bicycle. Not sure I’d like that much hot water so close to those important little places, know what I mean? Could give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘blowing off steam’, of course.  Present performance is about 8mph sustained speed, 6 – 8mpg of water and about 60 – 70mpg of paraffin (at a guess). Such a machine is never truly finished, and most times I run it, I think of an improvement to make for…
