Take a lot of notes? Then consider investing in a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen ($100). Available with 1GB or 2GB of internal storage, the Pulse has a microphone, camera, and special paper that allows it to make a digital record of your writing and associate it with the audio it captured at the time you were writing. Watch this for an example. It also features an OLED display, and has a growing developer community working on new ways to use the device — meaning it might become even more useful after you buy it.
Words fail to describe the coolness that is the R2-D2 Digital Audio and Video Projector ($3000). Inside this detailed R2 replica lies a 1024x768 resolution, 1500 lumen DLP projector, a built-in CD/DVD player, an iPod Dock, memory card and USB slots, a 20-watt speaker system, an FM transmitter, and more. It can also move independently forward and backward, rotate 360 degrees, and recline to show the projected video on the ceiling, and plays authentic R2 sound effects while it's moving. Oh, and did we mention all this is controlled by a Millennium Falcon remote with removable stand? It's the closest you can come to having your very own R2 unit without having to deal with shady Jawas. [Thanks, Dustin]
Don't leave it up to the USPS to track your most sensitive mail properly. At just a fourth of an inch thin, the GPS Mail Logger ($695) is a GPS tracking device that can be mailed in an envelope, tracking the exact location, speed and altitude of your envelope, from the time it leaves you to the time it reaches Publishers Clearing House.
