TDK’s Sound Cube Makes Music Beautiful

TDK Sound Cube

TDK calls their Sound Cube “a movable and sharable centerpiece for out-loud expressions of personality”, and I’d say that’s a pretty good description for something that looks as good, if not better, than it sounds.

With sound ports on each of its four sides, the Sound Cube delivers 360 degrees of sound, and with a tailored handle and lightweight, solid frame, it’s designed to go where the party goes.

The included USB port charges your iPod or iPhone while playing, or you can use the auxiliary audio jack for connecting just about any source that needs a bit of extra audio oomph.

…It’s Things Thursday: Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter?

Black Stealth RC Copter

I’ve played with one of these small R/C copters before, so I can vouch for the fun that can be had with one of them, but ThinkGeek’s Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter looks like it opens up a whole new world of possibilities with full 3-channel control.

Unlike most small R/C copters (like the one that I played with) which can only be controlled on two channels (up and down and rotate right and left), the ThinkGeek copter gives you full 3 channel control over up and down, rotate right and left, and move forwards and backwards.

In addition to the extra channel of control, the ThinkGeek copter features a dial trim adjuster (rather than the buttons that you find on most copter controls) for precise trim adjustments, and counter-rotating blades for amazing hover ability and stability.

The copter charges in just 10 minutes, and you get a full 7 minutes of play time out of a single charge, so you’ll never be left empty handed, and you can even change channels and fly with a friend, since each features two different channels that you can program it to.

All that fun for just $29.99?

I’ll take two.
