Inspected Gadget: Rugged Casio Exilim EX-G1

casio_exilim_exg1

Over the last couple of days, I came across this camera a few times and held back from writing about it – at first glance I thought it was just kinda ugly and hyping up the ‘rugged’ thing. Giving it a harder look, I’ve grown to like it – obviously a tie-in to the Casio’s  G-Shock watch “endurance-minded features” without exactly aping the name. It looks like it could still slide into a pocket nicely, and when you miss that pocket, it’ll survive the fall. I’d love to see a true endurance test when it is released.
The specs:

-Shock resistant elements inside and outside. Stainless steel outer casing, resin protective ring on the lens. Supposedly fine for seven foot drops.
-Water resistant to 10 feet for 60 continuous minutes, even under direct spray.
-Weather resistant down to 14°F
-12.1 Megapixels, with interval shooting of photos or movies (fun)
-Available in black or red, $299 MSRP in December 2009

Threadless & Griffin: The latest in iPhone Case collaboration

So Griffin and Threadless are collaborating on some products and sent us a couple of their new cases and some Tees to check out. I have to say that these, by far, are the best cases for the iPhone I’ve used. We told you about the Cozip cases a while back, and it looks like Griffin took some tips from their design and took it up a notch.  The pairing with Threadless adds a unique, one-of-a-kind user generated design to the mix. Another cool thing, the cases will not chip, and the solid plastic with the nice “grippy” texture is very streamline! The cases are available at all Apple stores and Griffin’s website, so finding them will not be a problem.  Check out the video above to hear the whole story.

Inspected Gadget: Ear Force X41 Wireless Headphones for XBOX 360

earforce_x41

The Ear Force X41 is an update to the Ear Force X4 Wireless headphones/micriphone for XBOX 360. Chat with coplayers while you blast them away listening to Dolby 7.1 surround, 2.4GHz RF audio transmission, USB powered base station. Retail price is $200, but can be found cheaper. These look solid enough that I may pick up a set. Probably also pretty good for some late night frag sessions at full volume without waking up neighbors or roomies…

Via Gizmodo. Here it is at Amazon at cheaper than list price.

Audio Chi Headphones

audio-chi-headphones

For who knows how many years, I have apparently been cheating myself and the music I listen to by using regular headphones.  The past week I’ve had the opportunity to try out a pair of headphones from Audio Chi, and am seriously amazed at the quality of sound delivered to my ears.  They are light, super comfortable on the dome piece, and look really tight with a simple chrome touch.  On top of it all, I mixed this week’s Sound Advice with them on and could not have been happier. Perfect for the desktop or on-the-go, these headphones are staying with me.
