Inspired by early 20th century 12th fret guitars, the Blackbird Lucky 13 Guitar ($1,800) packs full-size sound into a three-quarter sized body. This is made possible by the Lucky 13's hollow-neck carbon fiber construction and head mounted Stereo Sound Port, which combine to offer a fuller sound. Other features include a 3D sculpted back, a unique 13th fret neck connection that allows for greater fret access while retaining the tonally preferable bridge placement, and a classic shape that mixes the new and old with class and style.
Billed as "the world's smallest 256GB solid-state drive," the new Victorinox Secure SSD ($TBA) blends technology with one of the world's most recognizable tools. Arriving inside a Swiss Army Knife with scissors, a straight blade, and a nail file/screwdriver, this USB 2.0/eSATA II drive features an external e-Paper display for easy labeling, secure data encryption, a 32-bit processor with hardware error correction, dynamic power management, and an included software suite for things like backups, document synchronization, and a password manager. Also available in 64GB and 128GB varieties for those less starved for storage.
Not a fan of the virtual controls of your favorite touchscreen games? The Joystick-It ($25) can help. This crazy solid aluminum joystick attaches to the front of your device, plopping down right above the virtual joystick/d-pad to provide that tactile feel that's so maddeningly absent from all these newfangled "touchy" gizmos. Great for all sorts of games, though it's obviously best when paired with a game you actually used to play with a joystick.
