Qumarion Humanoid Input Device

We don't expect there's a huge market for the Qumarion Humanoid Input Device ($TBA), but if you happen to be one of those people who could use it, it will likely be a game changer. Like the ubiquitous artist models, the Qumarion is a posable, human-like figure — but unlike the artist models, it communicates directly with a computer. As a result, you can use the Qumarion to move and pose on-screen 3D characters, making once challenging poses and movements as simple as adjusting an action figure. Great for animators, illustrators, or people who just enjoy collecting unusual gadgets.

  • Gibson Min-ETune

    Make tuning your guitar a thing of the past by picking up a new model with Gibson Min-ETune ($TBA). This clever, battery-powered robot tuner can tune all six strings in just seconds, and delivers over 75 tunings per charge. To do so, it tunes your physical strings — as opposed to digitally, which can result in degraded tone — and gives you access to 12 common alternative tunings, including six that you can program yourself. Available on a wide range of Gibson SG and Les Paul guitars.

  • Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter

    It might not boast a camera or any on-board weaponry, but if you've been itching to hack around on your very own drone, the Crazyflie Nano Quadcopter ($175) should fit the bill. This open source kit features a tiny Quadcopter with an on-board 32-bit processor, accelerometer and gyroscope to keep it afloat, a compass and altimeter for, well, whatever it is you'd like to use it for, a lithium-polymer battery that recharges via micro-USB and provides up to 7 minutes of flight time, and a 2.4 GHz radio that communicates with the USB transmitter, which you plug into a PC to provide control. What you do with it — and even what you could do with it — is entirely up to you. [via]
