Strange Panasonic Gel Remote Revealed

This could quite possibly be the strangest, or most innovative, remote control we've ever seen. At the push of a button, this gadget becomes rigid and ready for use. No word yet on availability.

When not in use, this Panasonic concept remote is said to slumber
peacefully, its limp body pulsating with light not so differently than a gently sleeping MacBook.

What iPhone? Here is Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia has finally released its first ever touchscreen phone (aka iPhone killer). The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has a competetive price of $400 without any subsidizes or contracts (and free with a contract) and packs powerful punches. See a video demo and detailed info in my post here.

But is it art? Tim Nobel and Sue Webster take piles of trash and make art into them... but sometimes the art isn't apparent until you see it in a different light.

SpiderCat he can't, he's a cat.

Swany's g.cell snowboard glove secretly doubles as Bluetooth handset

Bluetooth technology has been finding its way into ski gear for years now, but Swany has taken things to a whole 'nother level -- one that's only reachable via the heated quad-lift. Unless this description is positively inaccurate, there's actually a Bluetooth module, speaker and microphone tucked within one of the g.cell gloves. When it detects an incoming call, it gives your wrist a shake (read: there's a vibrate function) and enables you to quite literally talk to the hand. Swany asserts that it'll last for 12 hours on standby (4 hours of talk time), though your phone may crap out a few hours earlier in extreme temperatures. Now that we think about it, wrestling that mobile out of our deep coat pockets with frostbitten hands is pretty annoying -- maybe that $495 price tag isn't so staggering after all.

Toyota's new ad for the Toyota Vios

This advertisement is known as "Bait" for obvious reasons.

A man is jogging by a lake and is attracted towards a new Toyota Vios which is parked next to the shore. As he approaches and touches it, it turns out to be a cardboard cut-out which falls to the ground. Just as it falls, a giant octopus like monster, appears out of the water and grabs the jogger pulling him under the water. The scene finishes with the monster using his tentacle to reposition the cardboard Toyota Vios cut-out to be ready for the next victim.
