Aiptek DV4500Where your host describes a number of interesting gadgets and gizmos, and then plays some Halloween sounding music:

Links from the show:

  • The Aiptek DV4500, pictures, video and sound files coming soon.
  • Grayson: a film trailer created by amateurs, telling the story of Dick Grayson, aka Robin
  • Jeri Ellsworth designed the Commodore One, a clone of the old Commodore 64 using programmable logic devices. She’s also designed the C64 Direct TV, a joystick with a C64 embedded in it, available this Christmas season from QVC. Cool!
  • I got a chance to play some Halo 2. Short story: If you liked the original, you’ll like the new one.
  • Cool product of the day: a plastic which you can melt in hot water and easily sculpt. When heated to 150 degrees F, it turns clear and is easily moldable, and yet when cools becomes tough and stiff like nylon. Can be remelted again and again. Neat stuff.
  • Music of the Day: Frank Ho’s The Merry Prank of Mr. J, kind of Halloweeny sounding, from garageband.com
