R/C Pirate vs. Ninja - Let the bloodshed commence...

A gong rings. A cannon fires. Two warriors enter the battle arena: one ninja and one pirate - chosen by their people as the pinnacle of their respective disciplines. They glare; they posture. Each warrior waits for the other to make a move. In fact they wait so long, that something weird and random happens to their bodies: they begin to inflate in the hot sun. And pretty soon, they resemble balloons. Not knowing what to do, their crews place them on wheeled dollies and push them at each other. And thus the R/C Ninja vs. Pirate feud began. Now play:

ChoroQ Qsteer Mini R/C Racers - Grand Prix on Your Desk

ChoroQ Qsteer Mini R/C Racers - Grand Prix on Your Desk

Normally tiny R/C cars are hard to drive and they control like crap. They zip off your desk and land in the trash the minute you hit the gas, but not these precision ChoroQ Qsteer Mini R/C Racers imported from Japan. Amazingly, we were able to zoom these mini cars all over our desk with nary a fender bender. Hit the turbo button on the top of the remote for even more speed.

Tiny Speaker, Shockingly Huge Sound

MP3 players don't have speakers because anything that small would sound terrible. Not true! Sound engineer masterminds have crammed huge sound into something no bigger than an egg. Shockingly rich and bassy, the X-mini Capsule speaker will blow everybody away when they hear just how clear and loud this little guy is. It surprises everyone who hears it. Plug it into your iPod, or your Zune if that's your thing, and enjoy the tuneage.

Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock - One clock to wake them all

This is the alarm clock to silence all alarm clocks. With 21 different alarms, 20 digital radio presets, an MP3 player input, a headphone output and a USB port, there is little this clock can't do. Ok, so it won't make you breakfast. But it will make sure you are awake enough to order it from the drive-thru of your choice.

Do you have a female human in your life looking for a stylish bag in which to carry her laptop? Yes? Then run to her closet and find her favorite pair of shoes and choose one of these purse-like laptop bags to match. These bags look expensive, but just think - you could buy 50 of these bags for the cost of one Gucci handbag... and would that Gucci bag hold a laptop? We think not.

Star Trek TWOK Enterprise - Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

"Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" was a turning point for geeks everywhere. We learned that even an old dude could be genetically enchanced enough to have massive pecs, so there was hope for the rest of us. Celebrate this feat with an awesome replica of the good ol' NCC-1701 - complete with lights and sounds from the movies. Boldly go... and buy it.

Alternate energy gadgets use free power sources

Alternate energy gadgets use free power sources

These gizmos run on readily available sources of power and are terrific demonstrations of alternate energy in action. For the Stirling Engine Kit, as the temperature changes between the base plates, the engine begins to turn. The source of power can be as basic as the heat emanating from your hand. The Mini Solar-Powered Car zooms along when the sun shines on its solar panel. It's a fun demonstration of solar power. Both are perfect learning tools or great desktop conversation pieces.

Easily open every major handheld and console on the market!!

Just because you like to tinker with your gadgets doesn't mean you have to be treated like a second-class citizen! Console manufacturers tend to lock down their gaming systems tight, trying to limit how you enjoy your purchase. They like to bolt the consoles together using unusual bits like tri-wing, and tamper-resistant torx. We know it's hard to get all these tools together, so we gathered them for you. Using this toolkit, you can open everything from a Super Famicom to a Playstation3. Once you've done that, you're on your own, though.
