Romo Smartphone Robot

Forget buying expensive, special-use robots — we're all carrying powerful potential robot brains in our pockets, so why not use them to our advantage? The Romo Smartphone Robot ($80) uses iOS or Android apps to control its analog circuitry, motor outputs, and acrylic base, with new apps and hardware modules promised to expand its functionality in the future. All for about one-twentieth the cost of the Aibo. [Scouted by Vincent]

  • Brixton x Fender Guitar Case

    You paid a fortune to get your impossibly vintage-looking Jag-Stang just the way you wanted it, so why are you carrying it from gig to gig in a pedestrian case? The Brixton x Fender Guitar Case ($200) is worthy of carrying such a lovingly-crafted axe, with a vintage-inspired design, solid construction, and a near guarantee that it won't be mistaken for the opening band's gear.

  • Epson Moverio Video Glasses

    We're still not convinced that they're appropriate for use in public — or anywhere else, for that matter — but if you're unconcerned with appearances, these Epson Moverio Video Glasses ($TBA) should provide as good of a portable viewing experience as you'll find. Powered by Android 2.2, the Moverio offers 1GB of built-in memory, an included 4GB SD card which can be replaced by cards packing up to 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi, built-in Dolby Mobile 2 stereo earphones, transparent lenses for see-through viewing, QHD screens that are the equivalent of watching a 320-inch screen from 20 meters away, and support for side-by-side 3D content.
