While the easiest way to contain an unexpected fire and prevent severe property damage is to stop the fire from starting in the first place, but beyond that, you need a fire extinguisher — but not all of them are made the same. HalGuard Fire Extinguishers ($125-$170) were developed for racing use, and employ Halotron 1, an electrically non-conductive "clean" extinguishing agent that rapidly turns into a gas, so they're safe for parts and wiring, pose no risk of electric shock, and leave no nasty residue to clean up, whether it's in the car, house, or office.
Despite its name, it's definitely more of a synth than a piano. The Pocket Piano Synthesizer ($150) is a nifty small bag- or cargo pocket-sized musical contraption featuring an industrial look, a built-in 3-Watt speaker, a 1/4" output jack, wooden keys, and the ability to run off a 9V battery, as well as six unique modes, including a vibrato synth, harmonic sweepers, two-octave arpeggiator, an octave cascade, mono FM synth and a FM arpeggiator, or more than enough to amused for hours, or at least until the battery dies.

Remember the Gibson Dark Fire Guitar we covered a while back? Well the company is back with its latest "world's most advanced guitar." The Gibson Dusk Tiger Guitar ($4,150) features a Les Paul-like body, but with a flat top, tone-chambered back, magnetic and piezo pickups for traditional and more "acoustic" guitar tones, separate outputs for each string for crazy effects, a multichannel FireWire interface with Ableton Live 8 and Guitar Rig 4 Pro for even more sound processing possibilities, 18 user-programmable alternate tunings with third-generation Robot Tuning Technology, and an exotic hardwood body that looks every bit as good as it sounds. If you want to get your mitts on one, you'd better hurry: only 1,000 Dusk Tigers will be produced.
