You know how the land of Japan tends to come up with some rather quirky items from time to time? After all, we were introduced to vending machines that sell used panties for those who have a penchant of sniffing on stuff stronger than glue, not to mention having the in-the-flesh “social network” of sorts in the form of Cosplay long before Facebook came into being. Well, here is another cute addition (although not that weird, but rather, extremely functional and practical) to the “Made in Japan” list – the Umiushi Smapho 2800 – a rechargeable battery charger that caters for both Android and iOS-powered phones.
The beauty about the Umiushi Smapho 2800 would be the fact that it requires no external cables or adaptors, coming in roughly the size of your palm. Of course, one’s palm size is a variable factor, and since the target market of this feminine looking device would be for ladies aged between 20 to 40, it will be rather small especially for the men. Then again, not sure what guy would want to tote this 2,800mAh battery around in such a design, as there is surely a more masculine model out there.
Universal remotes are a dime a dozen and usually are overpriced. They are also notorious for being excessively boring. That is, except for the massive ones meant to be a joke about someone’s age or being blind. Instead of going with your usual gray remote control with too many buttons, you could go a slightly more magical route. Instead of pushing buttons you could wave around your magic wand to make the channels change.
The Kymera Magic Wand can be flicked up or down in order to change the channel. If you need the volume up or down you turn it in a clockwise motion. It has a total of 13 magical functions in order to perform actions on your TV. The wand is battery powered and it actually includes the batteries. :) The Kymera Magic Wand is available from Think Geek for $89.99.
f you’re one of those people that suffers from unusual sleep patterns and you want to get your body back in to check you might be able to do it with this acupuncture sleeping gadget, the Dreamate Sleep Inducer.

See results in as little as a week’s worth of use, with best results after eight weeks. These precise pressure points, when gently massaged, calm the body, lower stress levels, and induce sleep. Unlike addictive sleeping pills that knock you senseless, but offer little improvement in your sleep quality.
The Dreamate is available from TG for $79.99.
You would think that the Pyramat Sound Chair was the ultimate gaming chair, but that is not the case. That title definitely goes to the Ultimate Game Chair. The name really gets the point across. This chair is packed with features. To start off, there are 12 vibration motors throughout the chair that are synchronized with the games action. Nerdy and cool.
As far as sound goes, you can use your stock headphones from a MP3 player etc, or plug the chair into your home stereo system to get full surround sound. There are adjustable 3D stereo speakers built into the chair as well. Any type of gaming accessory will probably work with the chair, including steering wheels and custom controllers.
Comfort was definitely not overlooked when this chair was designed. Its all leather material, has an adjustable headrest, leg rest, and even a beverage and remote controller holder. This chair will also give you a nice massage.
Quite a few game consoles are compatible with the Ultimate Gaming Chair, including the PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, PC, Mac, PS1, and Xbox Live. For audio only, you can use all those and your iPod, DS, PSP, or generic MP3 player.
Just to recap, you get a massage chair, beverage holder, stereo sound, vibrators synced to the game, and a remote holder. If you’re a serious gamer, price means nothing, but if you’re not, the $400 price tag might give you some second thoughts. Product Page via OhGizmo!
This is one of the coolest gadgets! It’s sort of a cross between a USB memory stick and a GPS receiver and what it does is store where ever you take it on the flash memory. The Portable GPS Tracker is pretty small so you could either always carry it on you or use it in 007 spy mode by planting it on a person or vehicle you want to monitor. You may be wondering how you retrieve the stored info and secret routes, well that’s where it gets really cool.
Once the tracker has done its travels and it’s back in your possession, you simply connect it to you PC and download the data. This data can then be plotted on Google Earth, Mapquest, maps.google.com and Virtual Earth to show exactly where it’s been, how long it took and how it got there.
This is so cool and it obviously has the spy functionality of tracking somebody else, but it can even be more useful for tracking your own holidays and backpacking adventures. So not only can you bore visitors with your holiday snaps, you can also show them exactly where you went.
Full feature list:
- Records time, date, location, speed, direction and altitude
- Works with Google Earth, Mapquest, maps.google.com, Virtual Earth
- Location points are downloaded into its software and then mapped
- Battery duration is 5 to 7 days of typical operation with 4,000 records
- Requires 2 AAA batteries (not included)
- Comes with TrackStick, lanyard, software CD
You can buy this nifty GPS tracker from Amazon.
