Both models use Logitech’s small Unifying receiver which can remain in your USB port on your notebook without getting in the way.

LG Home Theater Combo awaits your iPod LG is making it easy for iPod owners to get into home theater with the LG HB954TBW Blu-ray 5.1 Home Theater Combo that features a unique slide-out iPod dock. It will accept all iPods, but we aren’t sure if it spits iPhones out or not.

We just think that pop out iPod tray is cool and keeps it all tucked away when not in use. It was introduced at CES 2009 and the system is selling in Korea and includes 5.1 speakers, amplification and a Blu-ray player. It will cost about a grand, which isn’t bad at all.

First Blu-ray / DVD hybrid disc announced in Japan

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2008

First Blu-ray / DVD hybrid disc announced in JapanIt took long enough didn’t it? But it has arrived. The same benefits of HD DVD have finally made it over to Blu-ray. A Blu-ray/DVD hybrid disc. It features a single-layer of Blu-ray on one side and a standard DVD on the very same side (You won’t have to flip it).

As you are used to hearing, it’s appearing first in Japan, with something called Code Blue emergency helicopter doctor Blu-ray BOX as the first hybrid title. It’s a shame we have to miss that one. No word yet on when or if we will see this technology in the states, but a little backwards compatibility never hurt anybody.

Optical Mouse doubles as a digital scale

Optical Mouse doubles as a digital scaleHere’s a unique mouse. Probably good for drug dealers and those who like weighing really small objects. It’s a standard USB optical mouse, but it also flips open to reveal a digital scale. I’m not sure how much a quality drug scale will run you these days, but at $50, the Optical Mouse & Digital Scale will allow you to rip off your customers while at the same time read your favorite blogs. It should also hide the fact that you have a small drug scale, like during a raid.

The Digital Scale has a 500g (17.635oz) weight capacity with readability to .1g (0.005oz). So it’s for real small operations. There’s also an internal rechargeable battery if you want to use the scale without being hooked up to the USB cord.

iPod Nano TV/VHS combo

iPod Nano TV/VHS comboWant to turn your iPod into a TV? How about one of those old TV/VCR combos? I can think of a better choice of TV, but at least this will increase your screen size and give you more volume. This mini TV-set magnifies your iPod’s screen up to 2.8 inches. The iPod Nano 3G TV will be available soon for the retail price of about $23. Your iPod slips into the back as shown. It probably would have been cooler if it slid in the VHS slot.

KeyScan keyboard with built-in color scanner

KeyScan keyboard with built-in color scanner
Do as many people use scanners any more? I don’t. But if I did, a flatbed scanner would take up a lot of desk real estate. When you do need a scanner, chances are a sheet-fed version would do the trick.

That’s where this combo comes in handy. Hailed as “The World’s Only PC Keyboard With Built-In Color Scanner”, this usb keyboard incorporates a bi-directional 600dpi color scanner that’s capable of scanning a full page document in 14-15 seconds. 5 seconds in gray scale mode. It’s a tad expensive at $159, but you save some space in your work area and are really paying for convenience.


Keyboard with built-in PC

Keyboard with built-in PC
Desk top space is a precious thing. We save it wherever we can, but it just seems to get reclaimed by something else. This should help. The ZPC-GX31 will save you desktop space by putting an Intel Core Duo PC with a CDRW/DVD drive and a card reader inside a “normal size keyboard”.

Some features are Dual Display capabilities, 4MB of DDR2/667MHz RAM, 1Gb LAN and DVI interface. They claim that this is a complete personal computer that takes up no more space than a typical keyboard. Just put it on your desktop, plug in a monitor and you are done. You can customize the ZPC-GX31 All-in-One PC to fit whatever your needs may be, which makes the price range anywhere from $629 to $1099. While it does admittedly look like an old Commodore 64 I still have to ask myself, is this the future as far as home PC’s are concerned?

Asus mouse & flash drive combo

Asus mouse & flash drive combo
When two devices collide into one new hybrid device, the results can often be “What the hell were they thinking?”. This hybrid from Asus is one such cross-breeding experiment. It’s a flash drive from Asus that is also a wireless mouse. While it’s not the worst I’ve ever seen, I don’t see myself using this anytime soon.

Being a flash drive, it must be as bulky as it looks, so you wouldn’t want this in your pocket. As far as the mouse goes, who can use something that small? This isn’t for me, but if it pleases your tiny hands, you’ll have to wait for pricing and availability info, as we simply don’t know yet.

Evergreen’s gamepad & computer mouse in one

Gamepad & computer mouse in one
This gamepad mouse from Evergreen might be the coolest mouse we’ve seen yet. It’s called The Genius Navigator and hidden inside, you will find a gamepad featuring six buttons, plus Turbo and Clear buttons, and a directional pad.

The 1600/800dpi USB laser mouse weighs 67 grams and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and 2000. The Genius Navigator will cost you about about $33 USD. I suspect that both the gamepad and mouse don’t work all that well together, but like Peanut butter and chocolate, I do think it’s awesome that they put them together. I’d like to see them take it one step further and put a Nintendo DS in a mouse. That I would buy. Who am I kidding? I would buy this one, too.
