HP Presto Printer

HP Presto Printer

Everyone has that technology-challenged loved one that hasn't yet joined the email generation. Well, now they can at least receive emails, all without touching a computer. The HP Printing Mailbox for Presto ($150; Nov. 1) uses the new dial-up email service to retrieve messages sent to their Presto email account, and then prints them out according to the selected Presto Style. Presto Styles reformat messages to appear in full color, improving readability. The service costs $10 a month or $100 a year.

  • Nuvo

    While it's not Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons, it is the first home-use humanoid robot — and it's name is Nuvo ($7000). Designed to be a helper and companion, Nuvo is much like a dog that can tell you the time and date, take pictures of your place while you're away, and play music. It reacts to conversational commands, and also reacts to general environmental stimuli like TV shows or guests. To get a better idea of all that Nuvo can do, check out this article from the New York Times. Expensive, yes, but the day of home companion robots is here — and it looks pretty sweet.

  • 1967 Mosrite Vintage Guitars

    We pretty much make it a rule not to cover eBay items, but when they're this cool we simply can't help it. These 1967 Mosrite Vintage Strawberry Alarm Clock Guitars ($TBA; Auction ends Sept. 14) aren't just beautiful, they have quite a story behind them. As it turns out, 60's band Strawberry Alam Clock had them made by Semie Moseley of Mosrite for use in a film, but before the band had even played the guitars Moseley sent them to Von Dutch to be painted. After floating around in several collections, they've finally made their way to auction — and they are, quite simply, three of the coolest guitars we've ever seen. [via]
