Sinuous Guitars

As a general rule, guitar shapes haven't changed much in the last 40 years — and that's not exactly a good thing. Sinuous Guitars ($1,750-$2,150) aims to change this by offering up organically sculpted guitars boasting poplar bodies, hard maple necks, dual Humbucker pickups, and a range of rock-worthy finishes. And if you had any question about the company's woodworking chops, know that the founder builds Herman Miller's Eames Classic line as his day job. Yeah.

  • AppTag Laser Blaster

    What can't smartphones do? Mark laser tag off the list. The AppTag Laser Blaster ($35) promises to turn your phone (or iPod touch, we suppose) into a laser tag gun/shooter that works via IR and high frequency sound to let app developers create nearly any kind of multiplayer shooting game you can imagine, all without needing to block the headphone port or eat away battery via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Six buttons — including a pressure sensitive trigger and a oversized reload switch — enable plenty of real-world interaction, and compatibility with most Nerf and Buzzbee toy guns serves as icing on the geek-flavored cake.

  • Belkin WeMo

    In this modern era of smartphones and connected appliances, home automation shouldn't require a complex, expensive, and closed system — and with Belkin WeMo ($50-$100), it doesn't have to. Combining an app with Wi-Fi-enabled Home Control Switch models and motion sensors, WeMo can give you the power to turn off lights, appliances, and more, or have them operate automatically based on who is — or isn't — in the room.
