Montegiro Turntable...Your Turn

It's ironic that some of the most beautiful turntables have shown up long after the days of vinyl? If only we had had such beauty back in the days of records. Germany based company, Montegiro, has a new high-end audio system in the form of the new Legno turntable, and it not an usual one...

These gadget uses bamboo as well as high-grade steel to produce beautiful music from your old vinyl collection. The company decided to use a bamboo chassis because of the wood’s stabilizing and resonance-damping properties. There are also four adjustable and high-grade steel feet with rubber O-rings.

The Montegiro’s Legno luxury wooden turntable is now available for a mind-blowing $13,240. What a "magnificent" price :)

Eee PC In A Car Mod

Well it’s been awhile since we've seen a good car modification. The last one was the X-Box 360 Car Mod . Now, thanks to a Ruskie hacker, an Eee PC gets crammed into a automobile dashboard!

He is posting an article showing how to take a 7 inch Eee PC apart and turn it into a car computer that hooks into an auto stereo system and it even acts as a graphic equalizer.

The resulted product is a computer in your car with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of built in storage plus an 8GB SDHC card, a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, Bluetooth, a slot-loading DVD-RW drive, GPS, 5.1 channel audio, a touschreen, and a boatload of USB adapters that string the whole thing together.

We can almost hear you guys getting your tools out to make it too... :)

Saved By The Hero 3 Digital Wrist Camera

We know sometimes technology and nature aren't exactly best friends. We're really not sure what happened... maybe the ocean got pissed off after you dropped your iPod in the drink with 8-Bit gaming cover songs on repeat.

Whatever the cause, the elements of nature decided that expensive electronics and outdoor watersports are a lethal combination often ending in disaster. This works out fine for those basement dwelling obsessive geeks who keep all electronics in hermetically sealed vaults lest they get a slight scratch... but what about the outdoor geek who might want to capture the action digitally while snorkeling, snowboarding or mountain biking? Can they do it?

Well.. Luckily the Hero 3 Digital Wrist Camera has decided to "make nice" with the great outdoors by sporting a durable exoskeleton that pretty much goes anywhere. Strap the Hero 3 to your wrist and snap some sweet shots while, climbing, skiing, biking, or diving up to 100 feet. This mini camera locks flat to your wrist for storage then pivots up to capture crisp digital photos or 30 fps movies.Cool...

The Xtensor Make You Quick've got the greatest gaming rig out there. You've spent a lot of money on it - now it's a monolithic liquid-nitrogen-cooled monstrosity capable of pumping out smoother 3D video than real-life. After all that you also have a mouse with it's sensitivity to a billion dpi, and your keyboard has a customized throw-distance tuned exactly to your finger length. After all this effort, you still get lose. How come?

OK, Your rig may be awesome, and your brain may be sharp and quick, but if your body doesn't respond to your brain's commands correctly, you may as well be playing with mittens on. You need physical conditioning...

This gadget called The Xtensor is the only product on the market to perform with true biomechanical correctness, able to stimulate muscles and tendons in the hands, wrists and elbows that have been virtually off limits to all other devices. Repetitive gripping and squeezing of your game-controller or mouse forces extended isometric contractions of the flexor muscles of the hands and fingers producing an unnatural imbalance over time as the hands operate in a mostly closed position. For this reason, patients with hand, wrist and elbow disorders experience unnecessarily long healing times and high reoccurrence rates. Cool right?

With this thing, your hands move reaction-times much quicker, and will mean no cramping hands after all-night fragging sessions. Go get them!

Ski With The Ski Home Simulator

When using Wii-Fit’s balance board is great for some sports simulations, but it can only go so far. The Ski Home Simulator is another gadget that will give you an option for those with large bank accounts and too much time on their hands at least $2285. It's also has features for the ski beginner, as well as more advanced users, like a pro maybe? :)

But apparently it’s for the PC only for now, meaning that you need to plug it to your PC or your laptop.

This gadget comes with 32 different courses in it, from 18 real life venues including Beaver Lake, Lake Louise and Chamonix, these are still pretty expensive courses when you take the price into your bank account

For Your Eyes...Luxeed Dynamic Pixel LED Keyboard

We've seen illuminated keyboards before, but when we saw this Luxeed Dynamic Pixel LED Keyboard and stopped looking. With the 430 LEDs the Luxeed is capable of individually lighting each key in your choice of color. What's more it can do some amazing tricks like an animated rainbow across all the keys, or make each key light when you press it. Cool huh?

You will get four "preset" buttons above the arrow keys you can use to instantly choose between different customizable lit skin presets. Set-up a glowing skin for your favorite game with different colors to indicate each key action... or create illuminated patterns and designs.

This thing have two colors you can choose, pick your Luxeed flavor of black or white. The keys of the white Luxeed have a semi-transparent look and light up more brightly than the black. However the black Luxeed has a stylish treatment with only the letters being illuminated. Both keyboards look the best in dim lighting of course. Optionally you can pick up the matching numeric keypad to match your Luxeed, but we do warn you that the keypad is functional only, its keys do not light up. Gotta have this one... :)

Casio's G-Shock Celebration Watch, Cool One

Now after we’ve given you the good news, it’s time for the bad... :) These robot characters watches themselves are not available for sale.

When we're living in 2009, chances are you suck at sewing. It seems like kind of a lost art in a way and when you mastering an old sewing machine can be a real pain anyway. Really...

But with this gadget called Brother Quattro 6000D, you’d be a master seamstress. This beast of a sewing machine features a 7-inch HD LCD display and embedded runway lighting.
