It's not uncommon to see umbrellas in use here in the Valley of the Sun, even though it hardly ever rains. That's because an umbrella is a good way to keep the oppressive sun from turning your skin bubbly in mere seconds. This particular umbrella goes one better, and has a fan inside to help blow some of that 120° heat away from you as well.

Completely agree. That steering column and second wheel? Totally pretentious. Get the job done with tasteful minimalism on the Solowheel.

Kunstrasen is the name of a small robotic device developed by designer Sebastian Neitsch. The unusual robot sits low to the ground with the ability to draw vector graphics on urban lawns using a flame thrower.

I've worn a pocket watch since high school - I tell people it's because I don't like the additional weight on one of my arms from a wristwatch as it makes me walk in circles, but the truth of the matter is that I'm just too damn lazy to rotate my forearm long enough to get a read on what time it is.

Enter the Manufacture Royale Opera timepiece - a wristwatch whose face accordions out for easier viewing from a less-than-enthusiastic-about-knowing-the-time angle. Pretty, but I think I'll stick with my fobs and chains.

This is just too hi-tech to be called a toy - it's a quasi-autonomous flying camera that navigates via pre-programmed GPS or radio control. The potential for abuse is staggering... gimme!

When I was a kid, I wanted a Holga. It was a dinky plastic camera that took actual pictures with real 120 film, but made as insanely simple and cheaply as possible. My dad was a serious photographer and would have none of it in his house, so my first camera was a Miranda, a sturdy little 35mm number.

Anyway, the Holga's back, now in a digital format. Much care has been taken to retain the flavor of Holga's past while updating the unit with the technology of the day.

Flippies were very thin, flexible 45rpm records that were often included in magazines, books, and cereal boxes. Naturally, you have to have a record player to listen to them. Problem is, almost nobody has a turntable these days, what with all cd's and mp3's and other more moderny methods of listening to music, so there's lost avenue of advertising and promotion.

Well, no more. These guys have developed a promotional record player made out of cardboard, just right for mass-mailing.

Now you can - here's a pen that has an optical scanner and RGB inks that mix to form whatever color you've scanned. Plus, the side of the pen lights up with your chosen color. Nifty.
