Porsche's first purpose built racecar, made famous by Hollywood rebel, James Dean, is back in production. At least at scale 1:2.3 size. It is available for the first time in the United States exclusively at Zoospeed.com. This thing is so detailed that if it wasn't for its size, you'd mistake it for the real thing... comes in two models, the motorized version will set you back $7500 and the manual version costs $6000.

swing trainerOne of the problems with golf video games is the input mechanizing, the half-circle power meter that you need to click on a couple times to set the power just doesn't do it for me. That just changed… Qmotions announced today that their QMotions-Golf for windows is now available. QMotions-Golf is a state-of-the-art highly accurate Indoor Golf Simulation System which can be used at home, in the office, or just about anywhere. QMotions-Golf comes with a specially designed swing arm to drive, chip or putt a tethered golf ball with a real golf club. The electronics measure the ball's direction and speed characteristics and incorporate these measurements into compatible Windows golf games, thus getting rid of the traditional input method of using a mouse and keyboard. QMotions-Golf will cost $249 and that even includes EA SPORTS Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2004. PC, golf clubs and tasty cold beverages are not included.

The amazing thing is how Atari fit 10 of it's 8-bit games into the controller... plug the $20 controller directly to your TV and start playing games like Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Breakout, and Pong! The only problem, I remember breaking a couple of the controllers as a kid... Check it out here.

That’s Shocking!

shocking.jpgI was watching TechTV's Fresh Gear and they showed this little gadget called, "Shocking Roulette". It was hilarious! So I went to ebay and bought it for $20 shipped. When I opened the box as to what I thought was a "toy", printed in multiple places was "THIS IS NOT A TOY!", now that's pretty sketchy. I still brought it in to work, but everytime I try it on someone new, I need to ask these two questions, "Do you have a pacemaker?" and "Do you suffer from Epilepsy?". This is a pretty fun "toy", the anticipation is what gets you... the shock feels about a 9v battery to the tongue.
