And it looks like an arcade cabinet. Maybe in the future schools will be full of little zombies sitting in front of these things. Maybe not for awhile though, since it costs $2,599.99.
Watch in amazement as your kids say, “Who?” And, “Dad, I don’t get it. Why is this cool?” Kids today may not know who Evel Knievel is, but that isn’t stopping the manufacturer of this kid’s chopper.
It’s the limited-edition replica of the street cruiser ridden by Robert Craig “Evel” Knievel. And if you didn’t know, he set the world record by jumping over 19 cars and a bunch of other stuff, when he wasn’t laying in the hospital moaning.
This kid is playing Guitar Hero on expert and solving two Rubik’s cubes simultaneously. Showoff! He goes by the handle of “JRefleX93”. And though he solves both cubes by the end of the video, he doesn’t hit every single note, but he hits more than you would have. With his elbow. In the end he has a 77% rating and his choice of nerd groupies.
This is six minutes of solid geek gold, until the end, when it fades to black and the kid gets too cocky letting out a groan that ruins the entire thing. But hey, props to this kid for six minutes of geek fun.
Sometimes all we need to do is look to the past for solutions. And it doesn’t get much more old school than the ball and chain. Let’s face it, getting kids to study is hard, but attaching a ball and chain to their leg is easy.
The study ball is a real 20 pound ball and chain with a timer. Just set how long you want your kid to study and attach the device. When his or her time is up, it will unlock, not before. Then they can leave their room.
Jodi Wykle just wanted to get her son a new Nintendo DS for his birthday. Sadly, what he got was a box of rocks. The story goes that the kid opened up his gift only to find bunch of stones and some rolled up Chinese newspaper in place of the popular handheld.
Doesn’t that just suck. Maybe the kid had it coming and it’s the work of Santa, who is sadly a few months behind…Or ahead of schedule. Whatever the case, the mom contacted the local Wal-Mart where she bought the box, but reportedly workers told her it wasn’t their problem and that she should contact Nintendo. Big surprise, Nintendo told her the same thing.
I thought it was lies that set your pants on fire. In this case, it’s the iPod Touch. That’s why an Ohio mom is filing a lawsuit against Apple on behalf of her son, the kid whose “iTouch” seemingly exploded in his pocket and proceeded to torch his pants. Ouch.
The kid was treated for second degree burns on his leg, had a hole burnt through his pants and his underwear even melted. And according to the lawsuit, “He continues to suffer from both physical and mental conditions which will cause him to suffer pain, mental distress, emotional distress, and otherwise for the rest of his life.”
In the latest $300 million “I’m A PC” ad campaign, set to air Sunday night during the Grammy awards, 4 and a half year old Kylie uses Windows Live Photo Gallery to send a picture of her fish to her parents. So, now they’re using cuteness, which is a steep departure from their previous attempts. Some of the previous ads were downright creepy.
Cute is probably the way to go. How many 4 year-olds do you know that use a mac? I bet they aren’t as cute as this kid. How Apple will retaliate is anyone’s guess, but the ball is now in their court.
No one can really blame a kid for going nuts when he gets a Wii for Christmas, what with the current Wii shortage and all. Still, there’s something a little off about how excited this kid gets. He must have been dreaming about wrapping his little hand around the Wiimote and getting in on the busting up a TV with your Wiimote action, for months.
Because he sure is excited about receiving his game console. The video is weird, but worth a laugh or two. Go on and watch it. Then you tell me if this little guy isn’t destined to be the next this guy. Oh and keep the volume down.
These days we want games to be super realistic. It’s all about better graphics and sound as well as clothing technology that puts you into the gaming environment.
Rumble controllers were just the beginning. The LumiSource BoomPod is another such accessory. This one is designed to park your butt on, offering multi-directional tilt to the gamer sitting on it. Some other features include: Integrated 3″ 2-way speakers, Fully adjustable volume control, Illuminated control knob, RCA input jacks, Plush two-tone microsuede surface, Audio cords and Built-in handle.
Behold. This new 9,000-square-foot, 3-story spaceship is called “Second Solar” and it has just been constructed in the German city of Böblingen. It’s a real looker. It’s got “giant engines, a thermal shell to protect the crew and landing runners designed to cope with unknown surface conditions.” And it was designed for the children. It’s amazing what can happen when a nation that loves David Hasselhoff stops watching Knight Rider re-runs and thinks about the children.
It’s an interactive exhibit designed by Different Futures for the Sensapolis fun park. Inside you’ll find such things as a 3D theater, a lab, alien breeding ground, a medical center and a warp-core. Pay attention nations of the world. Especially you U.S.A. This is how you need to treat your kids. I propose we have one in each state. It’s too damn awesome for words.
