Inspected Gadget: iPad WaterGuard Case

A few months back, before the iPad’s release, I had posted the TrendyDigital WaterGuard waterproof iPad cover as a joke. Now, not only does it feel totally applicable for Wet Water Week, but it also looks to be the type of thing that would work well by the hot tub, poolside, bathside, or even if you use your iPad near the kitchen sink or around little ones with grubby hands. Doesn’t look pretty, but I’ll eat my words since according to reviews it apparently does its job well. I get the feeling you wouldn’t want to submerge it.

Inspected Gadget: Waterproof Canon Powershot D10

Capture your Wet Water Week memories with the Canon Powershot D10. While it claims to be “waterproof” we all know that is quite a big thing to say – so reading deeper in the specs it’s actually waterproof down to 10 meters. A nice touch- it’s also dust resistant, which might work out in a carpentry or sculpture environment… or maybe if you’re Indiana Jones. OK, back to the camera specs – it’s got lots of goodies you expect from a Canon point-n-shoot these days: 12.1 megapixels running through Digic 4 image processing, face detection, high ISO (3200), image stabilization, 16:9 widescreen photo mode, and two video modes (though not HD). Get it.

Back of the camera and controls view after the jump – buttons look big and bumpy enough to handle underwater.

Apple’s Magic Trackpad

Both an expensive mouse trying to train you for the iPad ($69), and another reason to buy Apple’s battery charger ($29).

Inspected Gadget: Limited Edition “Halo: Reach” XBOX 360

Well this is pretty fancy. There’s a collector’s version of the new XBOX 360 that’s done up in “Halo: Reach” style. I might be inclined to say the matte grey-silver case looks a little nicer than that of the glossy black on the standard version.

Preorder now for the September 14th release – it’s a pretty good bundle. It comes with the new “Halo: Reach” game, 2 wireless controllers, built in Wi-Fi, and a 250 GB hard drive. Via engadget.

Antennagate gets the Taiwanese CGI treatment. If you love Star Wars, and love/hate Apple, then this is your video.

Flipboard for iPad

Flipboard is a “social magazine” that feeds off of your facebook, and twitter, consistently updating content with what your peers like and link to.  If you’re not too much into social networking or have really lame friends, no worries, the app also let’s you pick from  Flipboard’s own selection of deemed important resources.

Inspected Gadget: Pandigital Personal Photo Scanner

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.

Inspected Gadget: Sony Cyber-shot TX9 3D Camera

Sony Cyber-shot T9… their flagship model with the ability to take “3D images of sweeping panoramas” that will display nicely on your new 3D TV. I’ve been fine carrying bigger cameras around but every once in a while I do like super-slim stuff, especially if it’s got the latest gimmick built-in.

The Ex-Blocker

For the stalky OCD girl or the weak dude who just needs to stop obsessing.

The Ex-Blocker is a Firefox and Chrome plug-in that not only removes your ability to look at your exe’s facebook profile and twitter account, but removes his or her name from the internet entirely.

Not a bad idea…and since all you’re doing is putting in a name, you can go crazy. George W. Bush? gone.  Heidi Montag? evaporated. Justin Bieber? buh-bye. Miley Cyrus? Well, we’re keeping that one.

With a USB extension cord and a hidden computer, this could actually be useful…

The Flying car gets closer to becoming a reality

The Terrafugia ain’t the prettiest car in the world but, it flies, and real delivery might happen as soon as the end of 2011.

“The “roadable plane” fits in home garages, runs on either high-octane gas or aviation fuel, gets 30 to 35 miles a gallon on the ground and 5 gallons an hour in the air, and has a range of 460 miles…It cruises at 115 miles per hour.”

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.”
