Today at Boing Boing Gadgets


Today at Boing Boing Gadgets, we looked at a magic dongle that promised to boost a cellphone signal and a phone that looks like a Lamborghini. An absurd hooded scooter was examined, and oh! how we laughed and laughed and laughed at the Denon cable reviews.

Beschizza got incensed about Atari suing a website that had published a review of a game without their permission, then had a three hour angry nap on a pair of Dig Dug pillows, cramming pig-shaped ear buds in his aural cavities and playing whale songs to soothe his spirit.

Meanwhile, we read a UMPC manifesto and looked at some zany retro-futuristic products of yesteryear. A decapitated Gene Simmons head made Brownlee want to french kiss, before he was distracted by torture porn for bicycles. He also learned how to love through the conduit of a USB Killbot thumb drive.

There was a KITT GPS Unit. There were sketchy Mac clones. An artificial twister promised energy to the future. A tiny little computer promised every grandma web browsing. We wondered about the ramifications of leaving our Wi-Fi open. We looked at a touchscreen dredged up from the primordial goop of the 80's.

And we all thought this Ultraman statue was pretty groovy.
