LG announces new 14.1-inch LCD for outdoor/indoor useThe one problem with working on a laptop outdoors is that the screen does not adapt to the natural light, which takes the portable out of the whole portability thing. Well, LG has rolled out a new 14.1″ LCD monitor for use both indoors and in outdoor environments, bringing adaptive backlight displays to a new level.

LG’s latest offering will give you optimum screen visibility under virtually any condition, since you can switch from Transmissive mode to Reflective on-the-fly. LG claims that the innovative display will also help prolong your notebooks’ battery life, although that remains to be seen.

Elite outdoor grill unfolds, looks at home on TatooineCheck this awesome grill out. If you liked the iQue grill, you’ll like this one. Hampton Grills has pulled out all the stops with this grill that resembles a moisture evaporator on the planet Tatooine. It unfolds into three separate grilling stations, each with their own individual temperature controls.

You can do it all with this one whether you grill, steam, smoke or grill, rotisserie, stir fri etc. It all can be done on this one grill. The whole unit folds up at the push of a button, which is pretty damn spiffy. The grill also features nearly 1200 square inches of primary cooking space on three independent grill stations. It will cost you though. The Hampton Grill is priced at $4,000.

Hive outdoor audio system

Hive outdoor audio systemThis simple and rugged speaker known as the Hive Audio System looks like it’s popping out of the ground and doing a bad Darth Vader impersonation. The Hive was specially designed for outdoor environments and comes with a sound tube that prevents the elements from damaging its precious innards, while amplifying sound.

The base gives it added stability, and since it’s wireless, the speaker can be linked to other units to form a “hive”. You know, these guys pride themselves on being the Borg of sound. Cool as the idea is, it’s just a concept. No word on when it may become something more.

Solar-powered Wii station for outdoor play
It’s a beautiful summer day. You want nothing more then to play your Wii and enjoy the outdoors. But you can’t do both. Or can you? Now you can, thanks to this solar powered Wii station.

Whether it’s some exercise with Wii fit or a kick-ass round of Mario Kart, you’ll be having fun in the sun. It’s basically little more then a wooden case that houses the Wii, a high definition display, a solar power panel, and a battery, so I’m sure it’s entirely worth the $1,431 build cost.

Intelli Cool: Outdoor air conditioning

Intelli Cool: Outdoor air conditioning
Close the door, you’re letting the cool air out. It used to be a bad thing, when you heard a parent say that. But apparently, there are those who actually want to cool the outside with an air conditioner. The Intelli Cool is tauted as the first ever outside air conditioning unit that uses a special water evaporation technology. The fans attached to it cool the air in your nearby surroundings.

But the fun doesn’t end there. It also provides bright light so you can enjoy yourself on those not so sunny days. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of info otherwise. It seems fairly ridiculous to me and it looks…freakish.

Rechargeable outdoor candles
These somewhat realistic looking outdoor candles are made from silicone and use an LED light bulb to simulate the natural flickering effect of an actual flame.

There are actually a few benefits to using fake candles. They are safer, you won’t get that nasty smell when you blow them out, and you can still set a nice romantic mood while at the same time impressing her with tech. And who knows where that will lead. On a full charge the fake candles can last for about 12 hours. You can get a set of 4 with charger for $89.95.
