Cassette Tape Watch

ASOS Cassette Tape Watch

Ah. Everything that resembles compact cassette tapes looks like a winner in my eyes. This chunky cassette tape watch in shock-resistant stainless steel uses the two spools to tell the time. Neat indeed.

(It would probably go well with your cassette tape USB flash drive, cassette tape MP3 player and luxurios cassette tape belt buckle in 18K gold too.)

Even more Star Wars Mimobots

New Star Wars Mimobot USB Flash Drives by Mimoco

Mimoco’s Star Wars Mimobot USB Flash drives got plenty of attention a year ago or so and now they’ve extended the series with Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Boba Fett. The Chewie and Stormtrooper models still rule in my Mimobot world though.

The Mimobots comes in three different models; 1GB for $49.95, 2GB for $69.95 and 4GB for $109.95. The new models will start shipping in January/February.

Space Invaders Alarm Clock

Space Invaders Alarm Clock

Here’s the Space Invaders Alarm Clock, available in shiny white, blue and black. I’m sorry to say that you can’t play the game on it (or even need to play it a bit to shut it down in the morning), but it still looks good.

Super Famicom Controller for Wii

Nintendo Wii Super Famicom Controller

Oh yeah, Nintendo has retrofitted a bunch of classic Super Famicom Controllers (SNES for some of us) to make them Wii Virtual Console compatible. These were meant to be exclusive for Club Nintendo Platinum members in Japan, but the people over at National Console Support Inc offers them on pre-order (starts shipping April 2008). Sweet.

Now, where’s the NES model?

Mixa: Cassette Tape USB Flash Drives

Mixa: Cassette Tape USB Flash Drives

Make a Mixa is a pretty cool idea for anyone old enough to remember the good ol’ mix tape days. Select a blank cassette tape in white or black, upload the pictures you want to decorate it with (either from your harddrive or from web services like Flickr) and voilá – you’ve got yourself a custom and USB-enabled 1GB cassette tape ready to be filled with whatever you want (mp3’s, images, emo poetry…).
