A robot-of-the-month club? Sign us up. The BEAM Bot Club ($170) will send you one tiny robot a month for four months that you can build using basic soldering and easy math.

Calling it the ultimate GPS might be going a bit too far, but it sure does rock. The new TomTom GO 920T ($700; Q4 2007) packs features like a 4.3-inch, 480 x 272 touch screen, Bluetooth, a RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver, a built-in FM transmitter, 4GB of internal storage, an SD card slot, Enhanced Positioning Technology that uses movement and gravity sensors to calculate position when GPS signals are unavialable, and more. Like we said, "a bit too far."
Designed by Crispin Jones, Tengu ($50) is an iPod-like USB creature that lip syncs to your music using his red LED face. He's got seven different facial expressions, and works with any PC or Mac. Don't blame us if Tengu gives you a WTF look when iTunes starts playing "A Bay Bay."
