Rubik's TouchCube

Array
Gear  |  Toy
Rubik's TouchCube($150) is the the first completely electronic solvable Cube features you just simple hit the scramble button on the cube, and then rearrange the blocks by swiping your finger.
"How does it work? Rubik's TouchCube features touch sensor technology on all six sides, a motion-detecting accelerometer, and colored lights in every square. It even mimics the movements of the original 3x3 Cube¡ªswipe a finger across three squares and the lights will follow, ¡°turning¡± a side of the Cube; make an ¡°L¡± shape to turn the top face of the Cube a quarter turn. Rubik's TouchCube's motion-detecting accelerometer only recognizes moves made on the top side of the Cube, so that a player's fingers won't move the lights on other sides when holding it.
Need some help? Solving the frustrations of hundreds of millions of Rubik's Cube players, Rubik's TouchCube also includes a built-in solver, so now anyone can easily learn how to solve the Cube step by step. Ask for a hint or watch Rubik's TouchCube solve itself.
Afraid you'll lose your place? Internal memory allows players to save their current puzzle so they can resume play anytime.
Love that iconic Rubik's Cube sound? Players can choose between modern or classic sound effects at varying volume levels to have a new or nostalgic Rubik's experience as they swipe.
Still stressed? Rubik's TouchCube stands alone as a great desk accessory¡ªthe colors slide and change while it recharges in its display stand."
Rubik's TouchCube, will be in stores in the fall of 2009, for under $149.99.

Inside-Out Teddy Bears

The inside-out teddy bears, by Kent Rogowski. I love them!
"Bears, is a series of portraits of the most unusual sort: ordinary teddy bears that have been turned inside out and restuffed. Each animal's appearance is determined by the necessities of the manufacturing process. Simple patterns and devices never meant to be seen are now prominent physical characteristics, giving each one a distinctly quirky personality: their fasteners become eyes, their seams become scars, and their stuffing creeps out in the most unexpected places. Together these images form a topology of strange yet oddly familiar creatures. They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own."

Lego Pneumatic Car Engines

Array
Gear  |  Toy
The lego-loving folks build the Lego Pneumatic Engines(EUR 300; $400) for your Lego models(trucks, cars, construction machinery), using the Scotch Yoke of operation in order to keep size to a minimum, and to maximize usable torque, giving better overall power output. The 2000 rpm inline-4 model features a cross-plane crank, a gear-driven valvetrain and a side-mounted dual cam with one valve-per-cylinder. The inline-3 model features a similar setup but delivers 600 rpm more.
"The engine is only 11 studs high, making it a perfect choice for fast (approximately 1:10 and bigger scale) LEGO cars, construction machines, agricultural vehicles and other MOCs." Check out see the videos, they are very cool!
