R2-D2 Digital Audio and Video Projector

R2-D2 Digital Audio and Video Projector

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]

  • Dash Express

    Going beyond the typical GPS system, Dash Express ($400 plus subscription) is an internet-connected navigation device, offering both cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity. This enables it to get real-time traffic data from other users, which it uses to show you the best (quickest) routes to your destination. Other features include local Yahoo! search, the ability to send addresses to the device via the internet, and more. The second generation of GPS starts now.

  • BUG

    If you're a do-it-yourself kinda guy, you might be interested in checking out the BUG for your gadget needs. Made up of a BUGbase ($300) and BUGmodules ($50-$100), BUG is a tinkerer's dream, allowing you to add functionality where and how you want it, and write software for the little guy using open source tools. It offers standard features like an ARM CPU, Linux, USB, a rechargeable battery, Ethernet, and more, but you can rest assured this is anything but a standard gadget.
