Alcohawk

Alcohawk

With New Year's Eve just around the corner, don't drive after a lot of drinking without first using the Alcohawk Digital Breath Screener ($70-$150). This professional breath analyzer has you blow into the mouthpiece and, in a few seconds, an estimate of your blood alcohol content appears on the LCD. If your level is too high, just keep 'em coming and give the keys to a buddy or stay the night.

  • Viper SmartStart

    Lest you actually have to start your car with your car keys, Viper SmartStart ($300-$500) is a cool new system that allows you start your car with your iPhone or iPod touch. Using a GSM signal, SmartStart either plugs into your existing Viper security/remote start system or comes bundled with one, letting you not only start but also lock or unlock the car, arm or unarm the alarm, open the trunk, and activate the panic mode, no matter how far away you might be from your vehicle.

  • Nook

    With Amazon on its second iteration of Kindle, you knew brick and mortar stalwarts Barnes & Noble weren't going to just let them take over the electronic book market. Hence, Nook ($260). Built atop Android and featuring dual screens — one e-Ink, one color touch screen — Nook aims to present books and their covers to you in a whole new, but familiar, way. Like the Kindle, it features built-in 3G wireless networking, storage for up to 1,500 books, and a sleeker design than Amazon's front-keyboard gadget. The icing on the cake? There are thousands of books available for free, making the two and some change price tag seem that much friendlier.
