1.5 innovative gadgets

1.One Laptop Per Child Computer Microwave Melted into a Mutant Slug Thing

What would happen if you put a $200 OLPC (one laptop per child) computer in the microwave? Professional microwave artist Kenny Irwin has created this OLPC microwaved mutant slug by doing just that. And he’s selling it on eBay for a mere $26,001. While that seems like a lot, 80% is going to charity to buy more OLPC’s (for kids, not for Kenny to microwave like some sort of OLPC ponzi scheme). Can you say tax deduction? I thought you could. Well here’s a video of it being nuked, although it’s not really clear how the “slug” portion is created.

2.Soap Mouse Looks Like Soap (on a Rope)

Don’t drop the soap! From Elecom comes these sweet little colorful mice. Each mouse looks like a bar of soap (on a rope). I think if they made them wireless, it would be a slightly more realistic effect. Not surprisingly they are actually called the Soap Mouse. Some of the colors are a bit un-soaplike to me, but I’m really no expert on Japanese soap having never been there (hint: someone send me on a free trip. thanks). No word on how much each of these optical mouses will cost or if they’ll be available here in the States.

3.Chocolate Bar HDD Case

Halloween is coming soon enough and even your hard drives need their own costume. Why not let your HDD slip into something a little more comfortable, like a case made out of chocolate? Ideal for hiding your drive in the kitchen cabinet to deter it from being stolen by robbers. Not ideal if the robbers happen to have a sweet tooth. A sweet tooth for data that is (zing!).

4.Care Bears Optical Mouse

I think I just barfed up a rainbow! It’s Care Bears optical mice. Yummy. These cute little bears came right from the 80′s into your mouse. They float around in water inside the mouse, keeping you highly entertained and happy. Really, I can’t think of a better way to spend $37 plus shipping. Just watch out for that evil Professor Coldheart, and his assistant Frostbite- they are always out to get the bears and ruin Care-a-Lot. Let’s get that caring meter up to the positive (rainbow) side, people! Care! Care! Care!

4.Mac vs. PC Chess Set

Everyone’s seen the commercials on both sides of the OS wars declaring the superiority of both PC’s and Macs. Designer Adam Frederick has taken that idea and conceptualized it into a chessboard design with the two sides battling it out. I know who I think would win a chess game between the two sides. Cool idea, the design needs a little refinement in my opinion though.
