If you still fancy a good old retro alarm clock you’ll like this cool product by Thanko Japan. This gadget looks just like a real retro alarm clock, but it has MP3 support and a USB plug that allows you to customize its alarm sound. You just need to connect the USB cable to your PC and upload a short MP3 music file to the clock that you want to be played back when it is time for the alarm to sound. The software is pretty simple and easy, and the only downside is that there is no snooze button, but that’s now such a big problem anyway. That is because you have to flip a switch on the back of the clock in order to stop the alarm and in order to do this you’ll have to be pretty much awake, but the best part that you’ll wake you to the sound you choose. The MP3 clock is also a great gift idea for everyone.
– Compatible with Windows 2000/XP
– Power source: USB bus power
– Compatible Sound Source: WAV/MP3 (up to 50 seconds)
– Power Source: 3x AAA batteries (up to 1 year use)
– Dimensions: 130 x 190 x 70 mm
You can now order the retro MP3 clock for just $29.55.
What would you say for some cool sunglasses with a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera in them, that is hidden. Ok, maybe not exactly hidden, but the normal person wouldn’t think you’ve got a camera in your sunglasses (unless he’s seen these). The camera on one of the sides in the glasses is capable of capturing still images with a resolution of 1280×1024 pixels. The sunglasses also come with a handy RF remote-control that is needed to tell the camera when to take a picture, so it won’t be on all the time…
These cool glasses come with high-quality and lightweight frame material and with UV400 polarized flip-up lens. The built-in polymer li-ion rechargeable battery provides you with a battery life of up to 9 hours if you are shooting 1 picture every minute. When you are done with the covert photo taking you can transfer the images to the PC with the help of the USB 2.0 interface trough a standard mini USB port (also used for recharging). As an additional feature the sunglasses also allow you to enjoy your favorite MP3 songs with the help of flexible earbuds, that you can easily remove off your ears when aren’t needed.
1.3 Megapixel Spy Camera Sunglasses are priced at $99.99
These new and a bit strange headphones are actually quite cool in the way they function and especially the sound quality they provide. Outi earphones clip comfortably and securely outside the ears, providing comfortable and quite nice new look and feel. The headphones work by transmitting vibrations through the skin and cartilage (bone-conducting technology), they create a dynamic new sensual, surround sound that doesn’t just let you watch a movie or listen to your favorite music on the go, it lets you be a part of it. And because these headphones are not inserted into the ear, they avoid damaging the listener’s hearing as past generations of earphones have done…
Outi earphones plug into any MP3, iPod, portable CD and DVD player, most cell phones, gaming systems, radios or any other audio/visual device with a standard 3.5mm jack. The kit includes: Outi amplifier with 4-step switch (off/low/medium/high) to control vibration output, a clip to attach amplifier to clothing or bag/backpack, USB cable for charging, AC adapter and a storage pouch. It takes about an hour and a half to fully charge the built-in lithium-ion battery inside the headphones. When fully charged these headphones will provide 6-8 hours of continuous listening pleasure…
