The Zeal Transcend GPS Goggle ($400-$500) gets around this problem by mounting a micro LCD display right inside the goggles. In addition to showing real-time GPS data, the screen can also offer feedback like speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance travelled, total distance travelled, the temperature, and the time, all on a screen that appears to hang roughly six feet in front of you. Glove-friendly buttons and either a polarized or polarized and photochromic lens round out this alpine offering.

Medicom will release a new Bearbrick speaker system soon for the iPod line and also the iPhone. The sitting Bearbrick comes with a dock for the devices and has speakers placed in the ears of the toy. It will be available from October 2nd in two colorways at Project 1/6.
Unleash pure office supply hell with the Rubber Band Gatling Gun ($500). Far from a child’s toy, this 15-20 lb. shooter is made from powder coated solid billet aluminum, and holds up to 100 standard office rubber bands that come flying out as fast as you can crank it. Perfect for ambushing co-workers who take the rest of the week off due to an “illness” yet amazingly appear on Xbox Live every evening in the Halo Reach matchmaking lobby.
We’re not exactly sure what purpose it would serve beyond eventually rotting your teeth, but if you have a need for an amusement park-style vending machine, feast your eyes (and mouth) on the Giant Gumball Machine ($3,900). At seven feet tall, it will tower over most house guests — and you’d better be having a lot of people over to help you through the 14,450 gumballs (included!) it holds. Or better yet, charge a quarter a piece, and get close to earning your money back.
Medicom presents their latest Star Wars themed Bearbrick Set, featuring C3PO and R2D2. Both Bearbricks come in a 100% size and will be released really soon.
We normally think of Nerf toys as being mainly for little kids, but at three feet long, the Nerf N-Stike Longstrike CS-6 Blaster ($32) certainly seems like more of a perpetual kid-style toy. Its length and barrel extension allows it to fire up to 35 feet — perfect for long-range copy room warfare — while a flip up sight helps you aim and its quick reload clip of six darts gives you plenty of ammo for the fight.
There’s a new stun gun in town. It’s name is the X12. It will stop you stone cold. The X12 stun gun was launched at the Global Security Asia 2009 event on Thursday and all kinds of law enforcement agencies want in. The X12 fires a jolt wirelessly through the air and can even cut through clothing to paralyze a perpetrator up to 88 feet away. The product will be available in June, so criminals better shape up by then as geting hit with this thing doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun. Sure, they say “It can penetrate clothing and transmit electrical impulses, causing the body to be temporarily paralysed, unlike conventional stun guns which causes immobility by causing pain.” But our guess is it has to hurt to be effective.
That isn’t the actual gun. You’ll know if you run into the X12
Think you’re active because you walk around the office all the time on your way to meetings? Well, now there’s a way to actually track that and know for sure if you’re REALLY getting all that much exercise when you’re strolling through the cubicles.
Philips just announced the new DirectLife product. It’s an activity monitor that you throw in your pocket, clip to your belt, or wear around your neck. It then senses all your movements, and tell you exactly what your daily energy expenditure is. The sensor (and the software that reads the information out of it) will help you to determine how much energy you expend on a daily basis, and how much you should be expending on a daily basis.
I’m curious about this one, since living the blogger lifestyle has me expending as little energy as possible, moving from my chair to the mini-fridge for a can of Mt. Dew or Monster(tm) every so often.
The system is available from the DirectLife online store now, and will run you $79 (until October 30th) and includes a 4-month membership. After the initial 4 months, membership will run you $12.50 a month. This product is available in the US and the Netherlands only at this time.
