Today on Boing Boing Gadgets

Today on Boing Boing Gadgets, we got an eerily prescient look at what an Apple netbook might look like, and laughed along with the Onion at the Windows 7 and Snow Leopard rivalry. A cell phone for the elderly was admired, and the delicious design fubars of the IBM PCjr were applauded after twenty five years. Target introduced some new gift cards with an oddly humanizing digicam built-in. Joel admired a beautifully simple African bottle opener and a LEGO meets Mega-Man stop motion video; meanwhile, Beschizza liked a cool transparent Goldbergian coin bank. There was a heart shaped box made of gears and a genuine Pip Boy for the exploration of the nuclear wastes. Rob told us how to build a wasp sucking machine and the curiously named Mgestyk lets you play videogames with your thumb and forefinger. Also: disabled gamers can play PlayStation with their feet. Also also: the e-waste situation in China is super disturbing. Link
