This next gadget I'm about to talk about is called iphone Virtual Reality viewer. This is a devices that is used along side Your iphone to create an immersive  3-dimensional viewing experience. The device uses the iphone's accelerometer in order to create 3D environments that move when the iphone is moved.the device is used by looking through it just as you would with a pair of binoculars, and two finger holes in the bottom allow you to use the iphone's touch screen.

You can use the device in order to watch 3D movies, become a great white shark and roam underwater with 360 degree movement to find prey and buried treasure, or play a number of interactive games.
The iphone virtual reality viewer cost $50, which is a pretty decent price.

Geeky Gadget # 9: MySky Star and planet Identifier

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend, because i know I did.

This next gadget I'm about to talk about is called MySky:

If you are just like me, and are clueless about the night sky, then  this is the gadget for you. The MySky star and planet identifier looks like a deadly ray gun out of sci-fi movies, but instead of shooting lasers, it will help youlearn about the night sky. All you have to do is point the gun ant a specific star, planet, nebula or galaxy, and it will provide you with all the information you need about the object from the database of over 30,000 celestial objects.

The Mysky identifier uses a 12 channel GPS receiver, magnetic north sensory and accelerometers, which will help you identify and learn about anything in the sky.The best part about this nifty device is that it will even take you on a guided audio and visual tour, which will highlight the best bits based on your current time and location.

The MySky is priced at $400, and it features a full-coulour LCD screen that illuminates sights to easily point at objects, and it can also be used along side a telescope

Thanks for your time guys...see you all tomorrow.

Geeky Gadget #8: Carzor Razor

This next gadget that I'm about to talk about is mainly for the male readers. Have you guys ever found yourself in a shaving emergency situation where you needed to shave quickly, but you were away from your shaving razor at home? well I introduce to you the Carzor Razor:

This is a wallet sized razor, that you can use on the go, weather you are at work, at a party, or you just realized you missed a spot shaving when that morning. This razor also comes with a mirror, so you can shave anywhere your heart desires. You can also choose a scent for you razor, where you can choose between mint, sandalwood, lemon, ocean breeze, or orange stripe to moisturize and freshen you up.

The best part about this is that it is not stupid expensive like other concept shavers. The Carzor Razor retails for $17, which is not too bad.

So tell me what you think about this crazy device...Is this actually useful to anyone, and would you buy it?

Thanks for your time guys, and have a great weekend.

Geeky Gadget #7: Real life Bat-Pod

I'm pretty sure that everyone of my readers have seen "The Dark Knight", if you haven't, then you fail at life! No but seriously, you should really watch it, because it is one of the greatest movies of ALL TIME!

Anyways, today I came across this article about a real life, fully working, Batpod replica, that is being put up for sale on ebay.

Here is what it looks like:

Compared to the one from the Batman Movie:

There is only one of these Batpods made, and it sells for $100,000! And remember, this is a fully functioning, street legal, motorcycle. The specs, for those who are interested, are as follows: It has a 650cc, 4 stroke watercooled engine, and it features a direct port nitros injection.

There is also going to be a replica of the Batmobile made, that is going to be sold to the public...I can't even imagine how much the Batmobile is going to cost...But for that one person who has enough money, and is willing to spend it on the Batmobile, it sure is going to be a special treat.

That's it for today folks...Have a great Thursday!

Geeky gadget #6: Ferrari Simulator

There are many people who would like to own a Ferrari, but the problem is that it is too expensive. So the next best thing is a simulator:

German Engineers have developed this simulator by using an Industrial Robot Arm and using Cyber-motion technology. The way it works is that player sit on a cabin at the end of the Robot Arm, and drive a Ferrari with Force-Feedback steering wheel and pedals.The aim is to make the experience real as possible without buying a real Ferrari.

This project was done mainly for research purposes. The researchers wanted to know how humans perceived, and experienced the sensation of motion....So that means this bad boys are not really for sale...well not yet. I bet they will start manufacturing these simulators for public use in a couple of years, and when they do I will be the first to buy one.The Researchers are also planning on adapting the simulator in order to create the experience the effect of being on a plane, helicopter, ships, and other vehicles...which is pretty cool if you ask me.

Here is a video of the Beast:
That is it for today...See you all tomorrow!

Geeky Gadget #5: A Robot that can Think, Learn, And Act For Itself

Japan does it again! The researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology recently designed and built a robot that can think, learn, and solve problems on its own, using artificial intelligence.

The researchers at the Institute used a technology called Self-Organising Incremental Neutral Network (SOINN), which means that when this robot is faced with a problem that  it has never seen before, it uses its past experiences in order to make educated guesses as to what  should be done. If the robot does not know how to solve a problem, it will ask for help and can be taught how to do that task, and he will remember it for future.

I guess this means that we are one step closer to World Robot Domination, haha, I joke, I joke. No but the most scary part is that this robot is web-enabled, which means it can communicate with other robots over the web, and learn how to do a task....We need John Connor!

Here is a video of the Robot in Action :

Well that is it for today's post...See you all tomorrow!
