Pong dress adds tech to fashion

Pong dress adds tech to fashion
Artists Max Moswitzer and Magarete Jahrmann of the Ludic Society has come up with the Pong dress – casual wear that boasts the classic Pong game across a 5″ x 7″ LED display which is integrated onto the dress itself. A pair of pixels on both left and right borders form the paddles, while the “ball” consists of a single pixel. Two NES controllers are located at hip level, so you will need three people to play Pong for a truly different social experience (two players and somebody else to wear the …

Tamagotchi grows up

Tamagotchi grows up
The Tamagotchi might be more than a decade old already, but Bandai has thrown in some new enhancements to keep the line fresh (for newcomers, at least). The Tamagotchi Jinsei now needs proper care, attention, love, and enough food and drink in order to function, but those actions also help your Tamagotchi secure a respectable job as well. I’m not too sure what Tamagotchis do for a living, but this idea definitely adds a grown-up dimension to toys. Each Tamagotchi Jinsei retails for $25 and comes…

Micro DS Lite stores game carts

Micro DS Lite stores game carts
No, you’re not seeing double. The downsized DS Lite is actually a portable DS cart storage solution. Unfortunately, manufacturer Tenyo’s design is pretty limited as it can hold a grand total of two games. Two games? I think my wallet would make a much better place to store my DS library. Here’s an idea – why not make a DS wrist strap that has a DS game holder on the other end? This way, you won’t need to worry about carry cases as all the games you want will always be attached to the DS. There i…

Nintendo DS clone carries Tetris clone

Nintendo DS clone carries Tetris clone
Check out this Nintendo DS-like device that comes with only a single game – Tetris. In order to avoid any legal complications, it would be better to call the entertainment software in question a “Brick Game”. This is pretty interesting, having the clone of a handheld console that comes with a clone of Tetris. Once you’re done having your block fix, all you need to do is snap the device from StrapYa close. There are ten colors to choose from, and you can pick one up for a mere $2.25.Filed in Gadg…

Zappit is Pong on steroids

Zappit is Pong on steroids
If you think you’re good at Pong, why not put your ageing reflexes to the test with Zappit. This game is practically a linear version of Pong on steroids. As a player serves, the red light which represents the ball will zoom towards the opponent, who will then press the button as soon as it hits them.Logically the red light will bounce back and forth faster as the game progresses up to a maximum of five speed levels. Anyone who zaps too early or too late will earn their opponent a point – the fi…

Dell could enter portable gaming market

Dell could enter portable gaming market
Global gaming chief Abizar Vakharia from Dell has dropped the ball that Dell could possibly be looking towards a gaming handheld in the future, although there are no concrete plans to do so yet. This means even more competition on the handheld front, and would Dell opt for the UMPC route to keep gamers hooked, or will they go to the extreme portable market which currently involves a two-horse race? Chances are the final product will be the former, as it would make more sense for Dell to use its …

Pimped Out John

Pimped Out John
Roto-Rooter from US seem to have its head in the clouds when the company conceived the idea of the Pimped Out John. This is definitely one toilet which would drive any geek wild, boasting a 20″ Philips LCD TV (no idea if it is full HD or not), an Xbox 360 console, a DVD player, a Gateway EMachine laptop with robot arm , an iPod docking station with a built-in toilet paper dispenser, a TiVo DVR, an Avanti refrigerator with a beer tap (to replenish the fluids you just expelled I presume), and exer…
