I've worn a pocket watch since high school - I tell people it's because I don't like the additional weight on one of my arms from a wristwatch as it makes me walk in circles, but the truth of the matter is that I'm just too damn lazy to rotate my forearm long enough to get a read on what time it is.
Enter the Manufacture Royale Opera timepiece - a wristwatch whose face accordions out for easier viewing from a less-than-enthusiastic-about-knowing-the-time angle. Pretty, but I think I'll stick with my fobs and chains.
Canada's Research In Motion has fired back at Apple's Steve Jobs over his claims that the iPhone is outselling the Blackberry and that 7-inch tablet computers have no future.
When I was a kid, I wanted a Holga. It was a dinky plastic camera that took actual pictures with real 120 film, but made as insanely simple and cheaply as possible. My dad was a serious photographer and would have none of it in his house, so my first camera was a Miranda, a sturdy little 35mm number.
Anyway, the Holga's back, now in a digital format. Much care has been taken to retain the flavor of Holga's past while updating the unit with the technology of the day.

Airlines will charge you money if your suitcase weighs over whatever arbitrary limit they've set. If this is any kind of problem for you, you'll probably find use for this self-weighing suitcase. You can also use it to weigh all your cats at once!
Flippies were very thin, flexible 45rpm records that were often included in magazines, books, and cereal boxes. Naturally, you have to have a record player to listen to them. Problem is, almost nobody has a turntable these days, what with all cd's and mp3's and other more moderny methods of listening to music, so there's lost avenue of advertising and promotion.
Well, no more. These guys have developed a promotional record player made out of cardboard, just right for mass-mailing.
Now you can - here's a pen that has an optical scanner and RGB inks that mix to form whatever color you've scanned. Plus, the side of the pen lights up with your chosen color. Nifty.
Daizi Zheng has created a cell phone that runs on - as you may have inferred from the title - sugary beverages. Power is generated from a chemical reaction on the sugars in the liquid, which you pour into the top of the phone. The charge lasts longer than traditional batteries.

Risky, to say the least. Vampires are not known for their restraint, you know. Fortunately, Fleshlight has produced a safer - albeit equally creepy - alternative. NSFW on general principle.
