Sick of squinting at your tiny iPhone screen during long flights? Why not just project the movie onto the back of the seat in front of you. The Pico Pocket Projector ($430) is an ultra-portable DLP/LED projector that measures just 2 by 4.1 by 0.7 inches, weighing only 4.2 ounces. It projects a screen size up to 60 inches on nearly any surface. The Pico also has a rechargeable battery and a built-in speaker (though headphones or external speakers are recommended). [via]
Make sure your plant gets just the right amount of water, at the right times with Botanicalls ($100). This DIY kit includes everything you need to build an Ethernet-connected translation circuit that allows your plant to post updates about its status on Twitter.

With the Moog name on board, you might guess that the Moog Guitar ($6,500) is some sort of guitar/synth hybrid. And you'd be right. Designed by Moog inventor Paul Vo, this gorgeous axe uses magnetic pickups to change the strings' motion and enhance the sound. In addition to the standard 1/4" output, it also features a five-pin input for the included foot pedal, a piezoelectric pickup in the bridge, a Vo Power knob to control the intensity of sustain and mute, a filter toggle switch, and more.

If you've got a rodent problem, skip the inhumane traditional mousetrap and give the Mouse in a Pint (£10, roughly $15) a try. This simple, non-lethal mousetrap — designed by Thorsten Van Elten — uses a breadstick attached to a spring to prop up a pint glass. When the mouse enters and begins nibbling, the stick breaks, trapping the little guy (or gal) in the glass. What you do with it after that is up to you.
