Marshall Headphones, available November 15th.
AAXA’s M1 “Ultimate” is an update to their “M1″ line of micro projectors. It’s got a nice new aluminum case, light output rated at 75 lumens, SVGA resolution, and a built in SD card slot. While not a hardcore projector replacement, consider how portable this thing is and the multiple possible non-intrusive uses (photo projector, temporary video setup, etc).
The prior version is also still available, though case is plastic and total light output is 66 Lumens.
The Garmin Chirp is a geocacher’s delight – it sends out a wireless GPS signal to a maximum of 32 feet/10meters to alert a nearby visitor that they’re either getting warm or already on top fof the coordinates they’re seeking. It’s just over an inch long, under an ounce, waterproof, and has a battery life of one year (continuous use!). So what’s geocaching? It’s foursquare and gowalla way before either of those two existed, and more specifically, like GPS-assisted treasure hunting. Makes roadtrips and sometimes even local trips extra fun.
Yahoo just released an update to their messenger app that now allows you to make video calls and stream live one-to-one video over 3G or Wi-Fi. It also lets you call between Android and the iPhone as long as the Android has a front facing camera. Download it here for free
Moleskine iCovers wrap your iPad or iPhone with the quality we all know and love. Not to stray from their analog history, the case also includes a nice notebook as well.
Save your ears, get better sound, and still answer the phone. Nixon’s Nomadic Mic headphones are sweet. They come in a few colors but Black is where it’s at!
The BBQ game has changed. By utilizing hot air, the Swedish-designed Looftlighter reaches temperatures in excess of 1000º Fahrenheit, and can start a fire in as little as 15 seconds. If this thing can go wireless, it will make matches and lighter fluid obsolete while also simultaneously becoming the weapon of choice for pyros.
Antennagate gets the Taiwanese CGI treatment. If you love Star Wars, and love/hate Apple, then this is your video.
The Pandigital One-Touch Personal Photo Scanner sucks in photos or print documents up to 8.5 x 11 inches, scans them at 600dpi, and drops the files right on to an SD card. No wires, no mess – throw it in a drawer when you’re done. Ideally you can scan old photo prints and dump them right into a digital photo frame. Also comes with a 5-in-1 card reader if you need conversion. Get it.
Kids these days have the coolest toys!
Silly putty infused with millions of micron magnets = Awesome.

So you weren’t ready for all of this heat and are too broke to buy a unit? No problem, ghetto-rig your own ac here.
There’s a USB dongle for everything – the Brando USB Mailbox is yet another thing you can plug into your machine. Shows off your incoming messages with an audio alert while it lights up. Connects to your Facebook, Twitter, gmail, yahoo, outlook app, outlook express app, Windows Live, Live Mail and POP3 accounts. With a USB extension cord and a hidden computer, this could actually be useful…
If you grew up watching Batman and became a scientist this is what your might invent. Do not try this at home!
“The RAPS, or Remote Auxiliary Power System, was developed by engineers at the Air Force research lab in Dayton, Ohio to be used by military special ops who may not have a reliable power source while on a mission.”
My goodness. I should have bought this thing years ago. I picked up the Lexar Firewire 800 CF card reader last week and I can already see it killing the time vampire that is sitting-in-front-of-the-computer-transferring-photos-and-videos. It’s blazingly fast.
Here’s a completely unscientific real world example: I used to transfer files via a USB multi card reader… The cheap, “what can I get for $20″ kind. Transferring 8-16GB of photos and HD videos, I used to get up, MAKE coffee, drink the whole cup, read an article, ponder a snack, get a snack, ponder life, eat the snack, stare out the window, check bank accounts. Now, I just plug the card in, start the same transfer, and manage to drink just half a coffee and read an article at most.
Details after the jump.
The Nintendo 3DS will be out sometime soon, and while we’re starting to see the start of 3D hitting our home a/v worlds, this device is of most interest because it uses a stereoscopic display to send the correct perspective images to your left and right eyes. Short version? It doesn’t require 3D glasses. 3D depth adjustment is controllable to adjust for your eyes – and there is a double lens camera on the device so that you can take photos that take advantage of the effect. Has all the usual DS features like wifi, backwards compatibility, and free online gaming access, but the processor has supposedly been upgraded.
Another nice touch: first game title it comes with is a new episode in the Kid Icarus series: “Uprising.” I lost weeks playing the original.
Kotaku has a nice guide to Nintendo’s latest portable.
