ESPN unveils The Ultimate Remote, is WiFi worth $300?

ESPN unveils The Ultimate Remote, is WiFi worth $300?:

Filed under:

ESPN’s unleashing The Ultimate Remote, developed by tvCompass, complete with 2.2-inch QVGA LCD screen and 802.11 b/g WiFi stuffed in a 6.5 oz package. It’s certainly a serious contender with the Harmony One — and priced like it, at $300. The marketing info claims no PC is required for setup, recharging via USB, an internet browser with real time access to scores, fantasy info and TV listings for broadcast, cable and satellite from click365’s wireless partners. There’s even a messaging feature for texting from remote to remote, email, or to a cellphone. We got a glimpse of it at Microsoft’s booth during CES, and while it claims “Advanced Microsoft Windows operating software” it’s not talking about SideShow. It reminds us a lot of the Ricavision VAVE100 MCE/SideShow remote, but with a slightly different feature set. Father’s Day is coming up and suddenly walking over to the computer (or keeping a laptop or PDA/phone on the couch) is sounding like a lot of unnecessary work. Check after the break for a bigger pic with keypad breakdown, or head to Amazon to preorder.

Sony Rolly finally brings the party Stateside

Sony Rolly finally brings the party Stateside:

Filed under:

Everybody’s favorite dancing robot of questionable utility from Sony is finally making its way across that big wet thing that divides the fair lands of Japan and USA. The Rolly, in case you missed it, is tiny little wheeled bot that can blast some tunes out of its built-in speakers, move its cute little appendages to the music and spin around for that full-on dancing robot experience. The bot comes with pre-choreographed songs (“Also Sprach Zarathustra,” Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” and Earth Wind and Fire’s “Boogie Wonderland” — all particular favorites of the Engadget staff), or you can use the choreography software to generate a dance for own tunes, or even program the dance yourself. The 2GB bot comes in black or white, and is available now online or in Sony Style stores for $400.

A Vista theme for iPhone? Yes, really

A Vista theme for iPhone? Yes, really:

Does this logo look familiar?

(Credit: ModMyiFone)

The latest third-party iPhone app to draw blogosphere buzz this morning is most definitely not Apple-approved.

The object of hilarity and defamation is VistaPerfection 2.0, a theme by developer Spec-Works that plops the Windows Vista GUI onto the iPhone. To run it, …

Floating Staircase is dangerously unique

Floating Staircase is dangerously unique: floatingstairs.jpgI don’t think staircases get much cooler looking than this Floating Staircase. I mean, look at it! It’s magically sprouting from the wall with a minimum of materials! I love it.

Then again, it looks horribly dangerous. I mean, ignoring the fact that I’d be expecting each step to snap off every time I walked up it, there’s no handrail on the side to prevent you from losing your balance and toppling off. This is definitely a no-no for any household with kids or, heck, any household with clumsy residents. Proceed at your own risk.

The Original Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products

The Original Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products:

The Original Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products (Images courtesy GPMarkham)
By Andrew Liszewski

I’m not entirely sure how Wile E. Coyote could afford everything he bought from the ACME company over the years, but I do know there were plenty of gadgets and contraptions I would have loved picking up myself. I mean who can’t find a use for a Do-It Yourself Tornado Kit, Rocket Powered Roller Skates or even the pinnacle of ACME engineering, the Giant Rubber Band.

The Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products website has pretty much every single ACME product I’ve ever seen in a Looney Tunes cartoon, and plenty I haven’t. It also lists what episode or episodes the product appeared in (I remember the Giant Rubber Band being used again and again) as well as a handful of screenshots for each one. Looking back you think ACME would have opened up a division to sell insurance. Though I guess the claims would have probably bankrupted them in a week.

Ringshot Turns Your Hand Into A Slingshot

Ringshot Turns Your Hand Into A Slingshot:

By Luke Anderson

When I was a kid, I was surprised when my parents let me buy a slingshot. I wasn’t a particularly mischievous child, but it’s hard for any kid to resist using one for evil purposes. Honestly, what is one really going to use a slingshot for, other than shooting at things that move or break?

If I were a kid again, I’d definitely go for one of these Ringshots. Rather than holding a Y-shaped device, this slingshot slips on your index finger and thumb, cutting down on the size. Heck, I might consider buying one anyway, were I able to find out anything about pricing or availibility.

Emergency Party Button turns cribs to clubs in seconds flat

Emergency Party Button turns cribs to clubs in seconds flat:

Filed under: ,

Not to be confused with the absolutely worthless (sorry, the truth hurts) Big Red Button of Doom, the Emergency Party Button has a very specific purpose. Designed to take a vanilla home from mundane to spectacular in just seconds, this connected trigger basically flips a boring crib into a bumpin’ club whenever you see fit. Just to give you an idea of what goes down when you mash the button, you’ll see hallway lights turn off, blinds close, a fog machine come alive, speakers crank up and loads of laser lights turn active. All told, the project cost the builder just north of $600, which seems like a real bargain given what you get. Jump on past the break to have a look on video.
