Posted in Toshiba by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2011

Most of us have moved on to High Definition standards in our devices and our lives, but not everyone. And so Toshiba is not forgetting those of you who are still rocking your VHS tape collections, with the D-BW500. This media playback device will handle both the old and the new in one device.

Feel free to watch your Blu-ray movies right alongside hard drives as well as VHS tapes. Other hardware specifications include an SD/SDHC memory card slot as well as AVCHD/JPEG playback compatibility. Analog fans will say VH-Yes.

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on August 25th, 2010

Many of us have tons of VHS tapes laying around the house, even today. Here’s a great project that will help you better use them. This VHS coffee table was created using 92 old VHS tapes as the table’s base.

It’s a great way to recycle all those old VHS tapes lying around. It’s not like you are ever going to watch them again anyway, since the quality is so bad. Might as well decorate with them.

VHS Lamp: It’s like your favorite Trek episodes are holding a light bulb

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2009

VHS LampI knew there was a use for all of those old VHS tapes in the closet. Seven, count ’em, seven VHS tapes are holding up this light bulb. Whether it’s old Sanford and Son shows or Star Trek the Next Generation, old television is the new way to light your home.

As the creator points out, the lamp is designed to be used with a CFL (compact flourescent) bulb ONLY. A standard bulb might get too hot and melt your VHS tapes. There’s nothing worse than a mound of melted tape. Trust me on that one. Goes well with the VHS toaster.

VHS casette turned into a USB driveWe aren’t sure why…this exists. We can only guess that some of you have already grown nostalgic about your old VHS cassette tapes.

A little work and presto, you’ve got a USB storage device that looks like a VHS tape with a wire tail. It’s super easy. You are basically just connecting the USB cable to a thumb drive inside the tape, wiring some circuit board and that’s it. Total cost is $10-15. Video below.

VHS Toaster wins toaster format war against Bagelmax

VHS Toaster wins toaster format war against BagelmaxOkay. Not really. But that’s how a format war would play out with this VHS toaster. It may look like a typical Daewoo VCR, but this one takes slices of bread instead of VHS tapes.

It actually toasts the letters VHS onto the toast. It only gets better if someone makes one that toasts movie scenes onto your bread. When your VCR is toast, then by all means let it make toast. Video below.

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.
