Eighties Apple fashion this is a retrospective -- India. And Apple Apple's dabbling with. Fashion and the Apple logo in the Apple. -- and being so much bigger than computing yet that -- it sparked cut an Apple collection -- old catalog. Of Apple -- He did purchase this is something if this could -- it. This guy is shortsighted and don't think we're part of the collection and that firsthand that when not service says -- time on his nightclub. These levees as a public dollars though they're only about dollars and one and a ban. If -- But the description as lake hit rambunctious than this Apple rugby. He's actually. I -- Apple -- -- -- -- no -- -- know that there's some there's some. Programmer at Apple still who's still -- and I am. Connecticut kid itself that is fat chance that's additive. And that's. Me my -- -- a golf -- guys -- wait and I think that -- and not yet. This meant that -- And that's an Apple logo -- it's like they didn't stick around. That's lake. And learn. -- -- in Alameda. Their -- sale. -- that's pretty great so. Really. None of that -- as. As much as I can appreciate Apple stuff that seems. Really low on the crave mobile items form -- -- so how -- really this is horrible I don't I don't create many of the stuff. Where what do we get to the parent who actually -- anything that we're talking about will get okay well I am. So why -- dressed in eighties Apple geared. And year -- fooling everyone with you eighty's walkman case. You'll be probably taking photos -- -- People are saying -- -- Canon via wonderful. Take on things. With your feet -- state to grant me photo filters. Might yet fat in that -- we have seeking only its. We have contest winners from. The -- tell us about this -- to camp contest I'm trying to -- So basically app. Crave readers using in two -- -- -- your photos and V. We'll pick our favorites and I really thought -- was to publish you know -- twenty believe that so many submissions. That we it -- five today and they're all kind of based on different themes. This one and was our first gallery and that is of -- no now. That's -- gas but even -- -- is there may eighteenth and early 19100 Tina. And then this -- -- -- The last time I ever dress up and -- custom and but it makes a ticket photo app has been through with it if it. The -- of a hailstorm in -- and and reality -- are some great submissions and for me it can publish tomorrow but -- -- -- and -- and a cnet's face the page. So did they win any awesome -- geared for having contributed yeah we're gonna get about Apple's AD -- future. Now unfortunately means. You just get their work published. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Half now -- but they -- and -- -- every unethical and how many galleries continent have done so we have five galleries and we picked by each day crazy. So that's at least. The better part of your afternoon if you wanted to check on all Athens tech that were submitted -- and -- are right now gonna move on to something and Gemini enthusiastic about this is exciting. New ways to kill yourself with technology. Number one number of project. At -- I didn't realize how horribly misspelled this whole thing was. Spin kicks into it there's no -- and -- I know we actually talked about this product by looking -- up on -- he talked about it. Over a year ago where they and then wearing me down the videos that were out for it showed a and this is like it's an attachment it's -- -- motorized. So where rats like that going for it yes exactly yet. But there was a version of this a year ago and that with so much more it look like Steve boots yet to actually strap on. And -- the guy who went walking around with them on trying to be cool getting out of -- are. He -- -- yet to walk with a limp. Because that -- up on your list so this summer's here attack effort to make it work. Now they've whittled down yet and it's actually. Only mean a little ugly -- like snowboarding. And then. So and and the payoff is if -- I think if you click through to the the kick -- video. Halfway through you can actually see him. -- and around we're not running. Visit the around -- it to hold a little remote control that drives it -- and hope to god the button doesn't stick. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yet the batteries may run as a retired by then internal batteries in -- that he'll yes and it takes I think two hours to charge license tags. Max speed is ten miles prior and it can go for about two to three miles. I see kids -- -- -- around the grocery store does so -- -- kill them. -- -- -- -- -- The one that. And billing issues that applicable ruler. Of this I VI I as a grown person I've always wanted to have those shoes -- -- couldn't care justify it. I think it's exactly taxi for a grown person to you have -- -- experience yet to spend much more money. -- and tell people that it's not just the kid she -- it right but nearly and the users and this is the future nor. It's can be part of my bionic commando suit the picture -- a is gonna be how -- -- them get around when I you know and so. Like I let myself go to -- -- I think it but I cannot locate stand either so but maybe -- be when I get out of mind. You know my my floating ball Eaton chair and -- actually get over. It picks something up off the floor music and activate -- and -- The so that's one link that's one way and I I'm I'm betting that. Remote control failures can be the biggest -- to -- you think I'm not the device itself but just run out of battery and remote or the buttons stick and analyst Russ keen to try. It. If I had it -- is on me. That's not it could be would apply -- Tell us about the fly aboard. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- this -- capable platform I guess that. Attached to on -- enough hydrogen and they can if you up to thirty feet out of there I think you can dive -- -- and yes I I've seen a version of this as like -- a water powered. Jet pack the stuff -- back and it is kind of gives you that. -- jet pack right dream come true but -- over water and you're not. Incinerating your feet off -- water that's right. Could you die with you couldn't and not -- not intentionally I don't think -- could write this when you can. Music that yeah well.

And how the hell did -- know that you're not gonna dive headlong into lake of sand bar rocky. -- -- -- to have that -- like connected to hear those ads but I think that's excellent. -- I really -- but I I wouldn't even -- command. You know. I'll help -- totally. And -- mean these people learn to. People they shouldn't and people who sign a waiver. But they could -- that. The -- That's a long way to go. And a would be -- -- -- yeah it's -- I think a combination. Would be pretty great Mikey he could spin kick your way off of them appear and then -- -- -- land here. -- toward you in Atwater spectacular and pretty great all right now Eric Franklin is not here. I realize that and this is. -- and millions and it is the king of -- -- that I do feel like there were a number of violence here -- in particular. That I would feel.

So there's that but honestly have -- You love Legos and if your fans so -- Oakland's. Computer geek and -- it's fair to say. You probably love Lord of the Rings and aim at the -- something the two are merging. And we have here. There is if you go to The Lord of the Rings dot -- dot com you can actually see a splash page splash page. Of of proto with a range.

Diego yacht and boat show good morning everybody and handle my friend John fox 5 morning -- starts -- -- the and it starts right now. What -- what he.
For their final episode, the Crave team does... well, exactly what they always do. Donald goes nuts for a free adapter that can create an unholy union between Legos and Tinker Toys. Bonnie recounts her dramatic day of technology detox. And in Geek News, Eric gives his two cents on the Hunger Games movie.
Bonnie's back, just in time to witness a barrage of futuristic concept videos. We get Samsung's take on the transparent tablet of the future. Also, Toyota's vision of a self-driving psychedelic car from a frightening nightmarescape where the middle-aged are given the Logan's Run treatment. We revisit the fashion predictions of 1939 and watch as flying robots construct foam towers. In Geek News, Eric recounts his obsession with MST3K and the latest Rifftrax Riffplayer, makes amends with Dr. Who Fans, and shows us the creepier side of Batman.
Jasmine's (mostly) back from vacation, and already hates the iPhone 4. To balance out her blind rage for the as-yet released device, Eric and Donald tackle Crave stories ranging from monkey-controlled robots, laser drug injection, and a Lego printer that drives ladies wild (or not). Stick around for the end, and you may just see Darth Vader's cleavage.
Eric Franklin once again invades the Crave podcast and is more than happy to provide his opinion on how unrealistic our latest Lego obsession is. Jasmine, on the other hand, is utterly unimpressed with the DIY power laces that aim to mimic the sweet Nikes from "Back to the Future II." But the tone turns hopeful when we get to Donald's army of beer-o-matic robots, and we're all a little taken with two sweet keyboards that take two totally different tacks.
This week, Donald and Jasmine have a lot to crave, not the least of which is a pair of health-monitoring tighty whities. And yet we are somehow much more impressed by a giant chess set made from robotic Legos, a swarm of hovering honeycombs, a massive LED art display that moves to the music, and a roving electric car disguised as a shrub. On the list of things not to crave? Trading drugs for gadgets. Come on people...you're smarter than that! (Right?)
CNET's Donald Bell and Eric Franklin scour the 2011 Maker Faire in search of Crave-worthy tech -- preferably the stuff that shoots fire.
It's everything from the Crave blog, with Brian Tong and guest host Bonnie Cha. This week, they talk about a new robot toy and a cell phone that you can use underwater. Then they take to the streets to see what people think about Built NY's laptop backpack. Plus, Bonnie takes your submissions and finds a nickname for Brian.
It's all the things you Crave! Brian and Bonnie talk about a Hello Kitty, a Zune night light that plays music, and a laptop case that has a pillow...the NapBook!
Vibrating Headphones! Polaroid is coming back? and Pet Fur Cases! Brian Tong talks everything on the Crave blog.
It's all the goods from the Crave blog. Bonnie 'Boom-Cha' is back with Brian, and they talk about iPhone 3G, the new 'Dark Knight' phone, and eco-clubbing.
