InstantMusic Vinyl & Cassette Ripper


Preserve Your Old Media Digitally

Do you still have a working Betamax, a 3.5" floppy with Windows 3.0 and the original "Pet Rock"? Well then we would bet hard cash that you also have dozens of old records and tapes mouldering in a box in the basement. Liberate your old media into glorious digital technology with the InstantMusic Vinyl & Cassette Ripper. Simply hook up an old turntable or cassette deck to the InstantMusic and plug it in into an available USB port on your PC. The included software allows you to convert your music to MP3 files, or burn directly to CD. It even smartly detects the gaps between songs to divide that old Journey LP into individual MP3 files perfect for transfer to your newfangled iPod.

Please Note:
In addition to the InstantMusic, you will need to provide your own turntable, cassette deck, or other audio device to record from.

Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard


The Future Has Arrived

Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It's almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of "Space 1999".

However, there is no driver software for Mac included with the keyboard and therefore no way to set the keyboard preferences such as brightness, key-repeat rate and sensitivity. You have been warned.


Ironkey


This Thumb Drive will self-destruct in 10 seconds...

Thumb drives are a convenient and cool way to carry around your data, and with drive sizes in the gigabytes, you can store a ton of photos, files, music, and video in a very tiny space. Unfortunately, due to their small sizes, they are targets for information thieves.

Think about it - all that personal data - your resume, email, password-files, and pictures of your girlfriend (wink) can be picked up and copied and returned before you even noticed it was missing. You want to have this data handy, but handy for you and not for that scumbag down the hall with the sticky fingers.

Like you, the US Military wanted portable but secure storage, and the guys at IronKey stepped up. They've developed the perfect solution that's one-part thumb-drive, and two parts Mission: Impossible. Their thumb drives hold up to 4 Gigabytes of data, but includes a hardware encryption chip that scrambles the data so as to be completely unreadable without a password.

Passwords can be hacked, but not the IronKey. It's built to withstand attacks both virtual and physical. 10 incorrect password attempts, and the encryption chip self-destructs, making the contents of the flash drive totally unreadable. The contents of the drive are filled with epoxy, so if a hacker tries to physically access the chips, he'd more likely damage them instead. Even if he did get access to the memory chips, they'd be worthless without the encryption chip. Electron-shielded, even a scanning electron microscope can't get inside.


Applications built right onto the IronKey help keep your personal data safe. For example, the password manager keeps your passwords safe. How? Your passwords are securely stored in a hidden hardware-encrypted area inside the device (and not in the drive's file system), being first locally encrypted with 256-bit AES, using randomly generated keys encrypted with a SHA-256 hash of your device password. All of this data is then doubly encrypted with 128-bit AES hardware encryption. Hack that.

A secure copy of Firefox included with your IronKey encrypts your browsing session through a VPN tunnel to IronKey's Secure Sessions Service. It works by tunneling your entire web browsing communications through the Tor-based Secure Sessions proxy on your IronKey. The Secure Sessions tunnel connects over an encrypted connection to their network routing servers, which in turn route your traffic between a number of servers, and then eventually out to your destination website. This approach protects your identity and your confidentiality, encrypting and anonymizing your Web surfing on almost any network or VPN (virtual private network).

These drives have already seen duty in Afghanistan, keeping US Military secrets safe from unsavory people. They're certainly good enough even for your most sensitive data.

All this goodness is demoed here. Go check it out!



IronKey - The Bottom-Line

  • Fast 30MBPS Read, 20MBPS Write
  • Drive contents encrypted with AES CBC-Mode Encryption
  • Onboard IronKey Password-manager keeps all your internet passwords safe
  • Secure version of Firefox included that encrypts all your web-surfing traffic
  • Encased in a potted metal case, not plastic, making it one of the strongest USB keys around
  • Exceeds MIL-STD-810F military waterproofing standards
  • The encryption chip self-destructs if an invasive attack is detected
  • If your Ironkey is lost, you can restore from a secure backup to a new Ironkey in minutes
  • Dual channel SLC NAND Flash for high-quality and read/write speeds
  • Windows XP and Windows Vista only, but Mac and Linux drivers are in development
  • Sorry - due to export restrictions, we cannot ship outside the US and Canada.

Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker


Super Loud Ninja Alarm




Super Loud Ninja Alarm

Even Ninjas need their sleep. For a Ninja, sleep is a time of renewal, contemplation, and rejuvenation. And when a Ninja sleeps, it is a very deep sleep. Most sleeping Ninjas can only be roused from slumber by another Ninja, which is a big problem if you are a Ninja, are tired, must wake up for a secret Ninja mission, and the only Ninja in your office. Good thing we found the Sonic Bomb Clock - it will wake even the soundest Ninja Nap.

The Sonic Bomb Clock has an adjustable volume alarm with a maximum loudness of 113 decibels (just for reference, a jackhammer is about 100 decibels!) And the bed shaker does just that. Slip it under your mattress and your ears will bleed and your bed will shake, and there is no way you will oversleep. Or, you could turn the sound alarm off and tape the bed shaker to your office chair. You'll be vibrated awake without disturbing the drones. Then you can get back to your Ninja activity refreshed and ready for action.

Sonic Bomb Clock

  • Includes: Clock, AC Adaptor, Bed Shaker Unit
  • Features:
    • Red Display
    • Two Brightness Settings
    • Snooze Button
    • Battery Backup (9V - not included)
    • Alarm Volume Control
    • Alarm Tone Control
    • 3 Alarm Settings (Buzz, Buzz/Bed Shake, Only Bed Shake)
  • Manufacturer Limited Warranty: 1 year

Escalator Morphs Hairstyles - Juice Salon Ad



An awesome new experience might just be your next escalator ride, that is if Juice Salon is advertising in your mall.

While you’re standing there looking down at the moving stairs five minutes after you’ve gotten off, passersby will understand your awe struck behavior when they see this nifty creation Juice Salon has come up with to advertise their hair studio.

As half of a male model’s head remains fixed at the bottom of the escalator, the other half of his head (hair) descends on the steps reaching the fixed figure to create multiple hairstyles in a matter of minutes. But to really understand you have to watch the video.

Effective and innovative are a couple words that come to mind, seeming so simple yet almost easy Juice Salon has hit it big with this Ad.

In a time where the eco-friendliness of a product or service is a primary concern of consumers, designers need to innovate to answer the same functional demands while incorporating greener ways and not sacrificing on design. Michael Laut’s Chute Phone is a prime example.

One of the most eco-friendly materials on the market right now is bamboo which comes from shoots and is the fastest growing wood known. Laut used the sustainable plant to create the cell phone he called Chute, aptly named after shoots of the plant.

In addition to being good for the environment, the look and feel of bamboo is just much more calming and organic than cold steel or plastics.

Water Powered Calculator

Most hand held calculators are powered by battery or solar energy, but for those looking for another green alternative, there is now a water powered calculator.

“Just add water or any other electrolytic liquid into its fuel cell and the chemical reaction between its zinc anode and cathode produces an electrical current that will power this Water Calculator for a month before it needs another sip,” Computergear.com explains.

These days just about everyone has a cell phone with built in calculator, most people don’t even remember the last time they used a regular hand held calculator to crunch numbers, unless of course they’re into math or sciences. In order to bring back an electronic device that seems to have lost appeal, the hand-held device offers a unique topic of conversation.

It’s great for anyone who likes using old school calculation techniques or gadget freaks who are into green technology, and it’s only $19.99 so would make a great gift.

Wi-Fi Detector Shirt


Wi-Fi Signal Status for You and the World!

Here at ThinkGeek we're pretty lazy when it comes to technology. We expect our gadgets to do all the busywork while we focus on the high level important tasks like reading blogs. That's why we hate to have to crack open our laptops just to see if there is any wi-fi internet access about... and keychain wi-fi detectors, we would have to actually remove them from our pockets to look at them. But now thanks to the ingenious ThinkGeek robot monkeys you can display the current wi-fi signal strength to yourself and everyone around you with this stylish Wi-Fi Detector Shirt. The glowing bars on the front of the shirt dynamically change as the surrounding wi-fi signal strength fluctuates. Finally you can get the attention you deserve as others bow to you as their reverential wi-fi god, while geeky chicks swoon at your presence. You can thank us later.

ClickFree HD700 Backup


If you have ever had the unfortunate pain of a deleted hard drive, then you know the importance of backing up all your information. Believe it or not, the average consumer does not have any backup protection on their computer. The sad case is that most consumers want to backup their hard drive, but many of them do not know how.

Consumers should be glad that there are now easy ways to back-up all their information. For example, the HD700 from ClickFree, a device that prides itself as being an automatic backup “for the rest of us”.

The HD700 is very simple to use and works by plugging into a computer’s USB port. It then automatically downloads software to back up a computer’s entire hard drive. Oddly enough, no CD Rom is included, nor needed, because everything a user needs is all on the device itself.

You can back up 120 GB worth of information, and the company plans to raise the memory level to 250 GB by summer. Even at 120 GB, the ClickFree is good enough to back up multiple PCs.

You can purchase the ClickFree HD700 at the ClickFree site for about $169.00. Personally, that price is a good deal considering the cost of lost information.

EPOS Digital Pen and USB Drive

I’m not certain if there is a market for digital pens as yet, and I’m not certain why. When I was in high school and college, I would have given anything for something that could take my handwritten material and turn it into text.

I guess students these days are taking their laptops into class and typing the notes out. But what about mathematics classes, where diagrams and drawings are the necessity?

I had a chance to try out the Fly Fusion Pentop Computer, and while that had some nifty features, I also enjoyed the EPOS Digital Pen and USB Flash Drive. The Fly Fusion requires a special notepad to work, but the EPOS can use any paper.

All a user has to do is clip a special device onto a top of a piece of paper like a clipboard, and then use the special pen. Then the device attaches to the computer via USB and the user can download his or her drawings or writings.

The writings can be turned into text with the included software, and it is pretty good at recognizing handwriting. Of course, there are always some odd variations. The technology of digital pens isn’t perfected as yet.

However, you can get the jump on the digital pen revolution by purchasing the EPOS Digital Pen and USB Flash Drive.

Pack What You Need - The QuikShell Bag



As any adventure seeker with an active lifestyle knows, packing just the right tools and amenities is vital. These tools depend on the activity itself; rock climbing, base jumping, snowboarding, tracking, etc… and need to be light enough as to not obstruct your activity. That is why Teo Song Wei designed The QuikShell, a modular bag concept that snaps on only what you need. So you could have one module for rock climbing, one for hiking, one for base jumping, and one for snowboarding, for example. You simply attach which ever module you need by snapping it on the strap skeleton which comes with comfortable padded shoulder pads and pockets for extra amenities.

Digital Fountain Pen - Send SMS and Email



Send digital messages with a pen? The D-Scribe is a digital pen, designed to look like a traditional fountain pens, however it converts your handwriting into digital form to be sent as either text messages or email via a Bluetooth connection to your phone. Simply write the recipients name and circle it to indicate who to send it to. A small built-in LED screen updates you on the status of your message and Bluetooth capability even allows for synchronization with a computer to convert pen strokes to commands. I love when new technology is integrated with distinctly low-tech everyday devices, coming full-circle and making for very intuitive devices.

"The pen also records everything you write which can be accessed on a computer. Of course for the creative peeps, if writing doesn’t suit your fancy, the D:Scribe also works with genius and not so genius drawings of brilliance". (yankodesign)

Nokia has the right to insist on calling it a “multimedia computer” rather than a phone. Nokia unveiled the highly anticipated N96 dual slider at Mobile World Congress. The N95 successor packs powerful punches with 16GB of storage internally in addition to a microSD slot (take that iPhone), a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss Tessar lens and two LEDs doing flash and video light duty, AGPS to ‘geotag’ your pictures, an integrated DVB-H mobile TV tuner, a ‘kickstand’ on the back cover that allows for hands-free viewing, support for common video formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media Video and Flash Video (YouTube), WiFi, and morphing lights on the smaller second slide that hook the user up with game controls. Music is not ignored with 3.5mm headphone jack A2DP and impressive integrated 3D stereo speakers. The Maps application offers rich maps with urban details and satellite views and has upgrade options such as City Guides, turn-by-turn pedestrian mode and voice-guided car navigation. It launches in the third quarter for €550.




Capsule USB Key

Carrying your USB flash drive around can be quite the hassle especially if you don’t want to clutter your pocket with too many things. Enter the Capsule USB Key.



This two-inch long thumbdrive is encased in brushed aluminum with an attached chain and hook.
2GB of portable storage for $27.99? Your call, dude, although I would think a necklace style USB flash drive would suit a lady more than a dude.
