It's not every day that we get to write a story about an electronic monster, and even less so that the monster is useful. The Thingamagoop ($100) is a physical synth made into a monster who's sole purpose is to make bleeps, bloops, and flash its lights. It features all the trappings of a normal analog synth, although the main oscillator is controlled by a photocell. Also, the Thingamagoop has a 1/4inch ouput jack to hook it up to any other equipment you might have. [via]

  • Nabaztag

    There are a lot of small, internet-ready devices that can help you stay in touch with others, keep you informed of messages, and report information from anywhere in the house. None of them, however, are as charming and helpful as Nabaztag ($140). With a wiggle of its ears, a different display of lights, or a simple voice, it can help you keep in touch with friends and with everyone else, even if they're halfway around the world.

  • Ring Thing

    If you've ever been a guest bartender at an event or a bar, you know how much of a beating your hands can take from opening bottle after bottle. The Ring Thing ($8) helps to alleviate this problem with it's simple stainless band design that features a cutout on the inside that serves as a bottle opener. Handy, and since the opening is on the inside, it's discreet as well.
