Part toy, part instrument, all geeky goodness. The Tenori-on ($1,200) is an electronic musical instrument that lets you create music by manipulating a series of buttons and a dial that control the type of sound and beats per minute produced, and a screen consisting of a 16x16 grid of LED switches. A magnesium frame gives the device a nice feel, while a pair of built-in speakers let you hear what's going on. You can even connect them to create a shiny, beep-enabled band. We love it. [via]

  • Livescribe Pulse Smartpen

    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.

  • 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]
