…You can play Asteroids on your wrist?

Asteroids Watch

Remember the Pong Watch that showed the time by automatically playing a game of Pong?

Well John Maushammer (the watch maker) is at it again, and this time he’s developed a watch that plays Asteroids with a flick, tilt and twist of the wrist.

In this video, you can see the second version of the Pong Watch, which includes a tilt sensor that allows you to control the game, and some buttons that allow you to change the mode, as well as a preview of the Asteroids Watch:

…Your alarm can be deadly?

Phaser Blasted Alarm Clock

Have you ever just wanted to shoot your alarm in the morning and go back to bed?

(Or perhaps the better question is, have you ever NOT wanted to shoot your alarm in the morning and go back to bed?)

Well now you can, thanks to a clever bit of electronic hacking and modification.

The Phaser Blasted Alarm Clock uses a gaming gun to shoot the alarm to sleep, and also integrates a tilt sensor so that you can change the time and set the alarm using just the gun itself.
