Here's something to momentarily baffle and then probably enrage Nick Burns (your company's computer guy).
They're 200MB mini CD-Rs disguised as standard 3.5-inch floppy disks, and they're sure to cause an entertaining freakout and/or meltdown when the Nick Burns at your workplace jumps across your desk to stop the tray from going into the computer. Ah, good times.
Available from designboom for $10 plus $4 shipping each. Hmm. I guess Nick gets the last laugh after all.
What else could you possibly wish for for Christmas if you had this awesome Pac-Man Christmas tree in your own hometown?! Obviously, not much else! I, on the other hand, wish for a trip to Madrid to be able to admire the tree live.
Unfortunately, the tree is not interactive, I think it would be awesome if somehow you could play a Pac-Man session on it. Therefore …
My dearest Santa,
For next Christmas could you please make the tree playable and bring it to my new hometown, Stockholm?
Watch the video.
Until manufacturers give in to the three people who've been clamoring for flashlight-equipped MP3 players, the Intelligent Lantern from Norm Thompson will likely reign supreme among the toe-tappin' campfire crowd.
Featuring a digital clock, AM/FM radio with local weather courtesy of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, integrated speakers, and the ability to hook up to an MP3 player or other audio source, the 9-inch tall lantern runs off of six C batteries or the included AC adapter and car charger.
Oh, and it can help you see things in the dark too (its light is visible from a mile away). Available now for $40.
