Vertical Mouse 2.
Evoluent VerticalMouse 2. They’ve improved the original ergonomic Vertical Mouse by improving the mechanical and electrical design, upping the resolution to 1200 dpi, adding an extra button and improving the vertical grip shape. Oh and they painted it a lurid purple just to make sure you’d recognise it. Nice folks aren’t they? $75.00. The patented shape supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. You will quickly become accustomed to the improved comfort. An ordinary horizontal mouse requires your…Read More
Solar bat box.
Solar Powered Battery Charger. What’s the definition of optimism then? Selling a solar powered battery charger in the UK. Arf! Thank you, thank you, we’ll be here all week. £14.99. This charger will charge four batteries of the same size simultaneously. On a good sunny day, 4 x AA 2000mAh NiMh batteries can be charged in as little as 6 hours. The batteries are charged within the case, which features a fold out stand for directing the solar panel towards…Read More
The H2Orb Leak and Overflow Prevention System. 24/7 monitoring via wireless sensors ensures that your toilet will never embarrass you in front of guests. No siree, Bob. The system comes with two wireless sensors, which are attached to the toilet bowl and on the perimeter of the toilet tank, and monitor water flow. The bowl sensor detects toilet bowl overflows…When a problem does occur, either the bowl sensor or the dual tank sensors automatically send a signal to H 2…Read More
The Earthquake Kit is designed to keep you safe in the event of a Richter scale event occurring in your area. How does it work? Well it includes a compass, a little whistle, an FM radio and a little flashlight. Cute, but let’s hope you never have to use one, eh? Around $14.00.Read More

Computer powered and just $99.95. Find your zodiac sign, your favorite constellation or any of the visible planets – in a matter of seconds. A state-of-the art computer tracking system shows you precisely where to look to find the star or planet…Read More
The Winnie Phone.
So tell me Piglet, is the new Winnie the Pooh Dmobo P700 Cell Phone the start of a new trend? Can we expect to see Tigger laptops, Eeyore digicams and the occasional Christopher Robin PVR? Maybe if enough people stump up the $360.00 these fables might come to pass. Shudder. A special edition to celebrate Pooh’s 80 years of Friendship and adventures. The enchanting and luxurious premium package with P700 is in an attempt to inspire you to discover…Read More
Deep dive doobry.
The Aqua-Nautas Underwater Helmet. No need for scuba stuff, just put on one of these Columbian helmets and paddle about underwater. Looks like they still need an air line, but it’s designed for tourists apparently. More info from the super cool dudes over at Gizmag here. Columbian start-up Aquanautas has created a new method of enjoying underwater activities without the need for scuba gear, tanks, masks and regulators. By wearing on of the company’s new helmets, a human can breath…Read More
USB Fridge Fryer.
The USB Insulated Cooler and Warmer. So who said USB wasn’t versatile enough? Stick a can in there, press the cool button and get a fridge effect. Or shove a coffee cup in and press hot and get it toasty warm. Apparently it’s all powered through the USB port too, which is nothing short of miraculous. And all for around $50.00? Gosh.Read More

Hipper than thou?
The Hipper Mood Creator is a totally useless piece of crud which produces a cute little light show when you plug your USB audio or MP3 player into it. £44.99 for something like that? I’d rather save me money and sit there flicking the light switch in time to Dark Side of the Moon. Your mileage may vary of course. The Hipper 100 will emulate the mood of your music and control the colour change of the 10 different LED…Read More
The Magic Box.
The Magic Box Internet Radio. I’ve been playing around with the Acoustic Energy Wi-Fi Radio for a while now, and it’s very cool. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that you need to get the company to OK any radio stations which you add, which limits your user choice unnecessarily. This model appears to be much of the same, maybe re-badged? Still if you’re in the market for a simple to use Internet radio device which is…Read More
