Sanyo Xacti HD1000 4MP MPEG4 High Definition 1080i Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom http://www.amazon.com/Sanyo-HD1000-Definition-Camcorder-Optical/dp/B000V79G0M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1212700827&sr=8-1 … Read more
Anybody can turn an iPod into a mini-disco with a variety of accessories, from flashing cases to pulsating cube (though we'd hope they would resist the urge for their own sake). But in the bathtub? We thought that was reserved for Craver Caroline McCarthy and her only-in-Japan discoveries.
The concept has apparently made its way west with the "Underwater Disco Lightshow" from those cheeky monkeys at Firebox, which Chip Chick says can turn the tub into an aquatic dance floor. Just slip an iPod into the waterproof case, and Donna Summer will magically appear for the last … Read more
When it comes to bathtime, bubbles aren't just good enough anymore. You either need a floating music player, or maybe light-up disco balls for your bath salts. But even that might not suffice in today's cutthroat bathtub-gadget culture.
Enter the Aqua Rain, which does all of the following: 1) lights up via LED to illuminate your tub in soothing, color-changing hues, 2) plays waterfall noises, and 3) creates a mini-fountain of water. I'm normally a fan of things that change color, but really, I don't see any point to this whatsoever. And it's $40.
Next, … Read more
My preferred mode of transportation is a pair of sneakers, but this may come close to usurping that. It's a bathtub on wheels.
I'm quite surprised they don't have one of these at the Googleplex already. (Actually, maybe they do.) I mean, man oh man does this Bathtub Racer playset look like fun. You get into a motorized bathtub ($9,995 for a set of two), and you zoom around. It's as simple--and as awesome--as that.
Presumably you can jet around in the battery-powered tubs wherever you please, riding them to the corner deli or maybe … Read more
Our overprotective parental genes have led us to express concerns about underwater electronics on more than a few occasions. It's that old radio-bathtub-electrocution warning from our childhood, not unlike the standard you'll-put-your-eye-out routine.
So even though it may not be scientifically necessary, we approve of the sealed-case design of this waterproof MP3 player from Japan's Sunconnection. The airtight casing has even skipped the usual display (gasp), though it seems to have most of the standard specs, Fareastgizmos says. And even if it does end up failing, you'll only be out $25--just hope that it doesn't … Read more
Apparently, these days you just aren't keeping up with the Joneses if you have a TV in your bedroom and one embedded in your refrigerator. And it's not enough to have one in the bathroom--it's got to be in the bathtub. I should also mention that the tub can't be an ordinary tub. It's got to be along the lines of the Luxor Hydro Massage Bathtub, as featured on Born Rich. The Luxor tub is selling for 3,995 British pounds, which is about $7,600. A small price for the absolute must-have of being … Read more
