Inspected Gadget: Red Dead Redemption + Short Film

Ahh, Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games. Doesn’t even do it justice to say it’s Grand Theft Auto set in the wild west. A worthwhile investment. If you need to be convinced further or are already playing, check out this trailer for a short film making its debut Saturday night (May 29) at midnight ET/PT on FOX. Directed by John Hillcoat (Yes – the same guy who did The Road and The Proposition), entirely using the game’s graphic rendering engine as his camera.

As usual, Rockstar has a funny glitch or two in their games… check out the incredible donkey lady after the jump.

Inspected Gadget: Energizer Night Strike Swivel Flashlight

Ahh. The Energizer Night Strike Swivel Flashlight. Where have you been my whole life? If you’re constantly digging behind equipment like I am, you know how important a swivel-head light is, or one that you can aim and stand up in a corner.  It’s got high, medium and low settings on not only white light, but red, green and blue light for preventing nightblindness. What else? It’s got a UV light mode to show you the things your eyes can’t normally see (gross stains, most likely), it’s powered by the usual two AA batteries – but can function with just one. More specs after the jump.

Inspected Gadget: MotionX-GPS HD iPad App

The Motion X GPS app for iPad will be available shortly,  showing off a larger, more usable footprint of data from the iPhone version. Gives me some interesting excuses for in-vehicle mounting. The existing version is pretty sweet- I’ve used it to log map routes by bike and car, and the data export can be used to geotag photos. It’s not a turn-by-turn navigation solution, but is a pretty robust tracking app for the data hound in me.
