Transparent Potty

As a father to be, this product proved to be a bit disturbing. More disturbing was the coversation I had with Sharon a bit after seeing this product.

What if we had clear toliets? You could actually see stuff going down the drain and disappearing forever. You could also see where clogs are, and it actually went further downhill after that. Talk of mirrors and TVs in the bathroom helped steer the coversation.

Hydrogen Fuel Rocket

I like this.

I can’t say I ever put together rockets and set them off when I was younger, I can’t say I was never interested in it either. I did like blowing up stuff and I did build a potato cannon and shot potatoes at dumpsters. At about 30-40 feet, the potatoes tended to disintegrate when they smashed into the dumpster. Probably like the space probe did when it smashed into that comet today.

Vacuum Tube Car Stereo

Check this out.

It’s a huge car stereo with an old school vacuum tube. And it plays MP3s, and it’s got a couple meters with the needles instead of those fancy LED displays.

It looks a bit silly though, and at $950, it’s a big old hell no for me.

iPods in odd positions

So I’m trying to figure out the usefulness of the iGuy, when I notice the different positions they have it in. You can bend the iGuy into a sitting position and place it on the iPod dock. But a bit more bluntly, it looks like your iPod/iGuy is taking a shit.

Seriously, the iGuy is not ‘chilling out’ on the dock as the caption on the site suggests. All you need is a bit of reading material in it’s lap, and you’re set.

Lego Star Wars

Watch the Lego Star Wars movie. I found it quite entertaining. Yoda walking around was pretty funny too, it was just like those lego guys. There’s more stuff at treehouseanimation.com but all the movies were garbled.

Lightning On Demand

It’s a 110,000 volt Taser Cannon.
Note the picture at the bottom of the page. I can’t say I would be too comfortable playing with that. And the ‘sinus discomfort’ after firing it several times? That can’t be good…

Take Your iPod Underwater(?)

I’m not so sure I would want to take my iPod Underwater. I can’t even imagine it even sounding very good. Being in the water is loud and all, and I can’t see not getting water in my ears while listening to it.
