Basically these space age shades are your very own take anywhere 50 inch movie screen. Weighing in at just 68g, ezVision Video specs plug into your iPod Video or any portable video/movie/DVD player and screens your movies in such a way that it seems as though you're looking at a huge screen. They allow you to zone out from the world around you and get right into the movie, slide show, or whatever. There are retractable headphones that are built into the arms of the specs, so you can truly plug-in and zone-out. Watch movies in bed without disturbing your better half, chill out on the train in front of a top film, or plug in in-flight and free yourself from those horrible little seat-back screens.
1st Prize: Interactive Star Wars Light Saber Game
This game plugs into a television and translates actual movement into on-screen interactive lightsaber dueling from the iconic Star Wars movies. A spheroidal training droid plugs into your TV (not included) via an included RCA cable and wirelessly detects every movement of the lightsaber as you collaborate with on-screen representations of famous Jedi Knights such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Yoda to battle a host of adversaries including Jango Fett, Emporer Palpatine, and Darth Vader. The only downside to this is that you can't kill Jar Jar Banks.
2nd Prize: Duck Shooting Gallery
The aim of the game is to fire your laser gun at the ducks as they scuttle behind the static targets. When shot they'll drop dead, your score notches up, and then after a lightening bit of resurrection, they scuttle off again. An LED counter will tally up your canard casualties and the whole affair is accompanied by fabulous gun sound effects and mildly (yet appropriately) annoying carnival music.
3rd Prize: Planetary Orbit Clock
The Planetary Orbit Clock looks like 4 simple planets orbiting a star (or perhaps an atom of Beryllium). They dance around their orbits and it's pretty. To anyone not in the know, it just looks like sculpture, but you can read its secrets. It's a great complex piece, with a very simple solution. When you glance down from the top, the planets become hour, minute, and second hands, and the time is easily gleaned. With enough practice, you'll be able to tell time from the side and really impress people. And once you've mastered time, you can move on to space...and beyond.
4th Prize: Giant R/C Mario Kart Racer
Are you as big of a Mario Kart fan as we are? Have you kept your Nintendo 64 around for the sole purpose of beating your brother in "Battle Mode" yet again? Yes? Then you'll turn all gooshy when you see Mario come to life speeding down your hallway shouting "lets-a-go!". Yep, this R/C Mario Kart Racer is over 12" long and features various sound effects from the game.
5th Prize: Tardis USB Hub
The dizzy, if arcane, world of time travel has never felt so appealing as when you're sitting at your desk watching the clock grind round. The TARDIS is the Doctor's method of travel through both time and space This 4 port Tardis USB hub may not whisk you off to another dimension (more's the pity), but it will, temporarily at least, divert you from the reality of an eight hour work day. The Tardis has four USB ports, and every time you plug in some USB gizmo the light on the top flashes, and best of all, it makes that classic Tardis 'in a second this ludicrous machine will disappear' noise that we know and love. You can turn the noise off if you like, but what would be the point of that? Anyone who spent some or all of their childhood hiding behind the sofa at the sight of approaching hoards of malevolent Daleks or Cybermen, can now rest easy with a Tardis (albeit quite a small one) USB Hub on their desktop.
6th Prize: Shocking Alarm Clock
Glrzzk?! Snrk? Huh, wha..? Oh. Alarm clock... must shut off... ZOWWIE!!!! If you really need a jump start to get you going in the morning, this clock is just the thing. Unless you're very careful, turning off the alarm will result in a startling electrical shock, sure to wake you up.
7th Prize: Comic Blocks
Ever feel like office life is just a series of unconnected, random events? Is every work-week a mere blur of mindless activity? Welcome to the rat race! Now you can keep a set of Comic Blocks on your desk to help putter away the days. Remember, Friday is just five blocks away!
8th Prize: Automatic Cube Weapon Target
It's pretty hard to be nice to your co-workers... especially when you have an arsenal of mostly harmless cubicle weapons and your stapler just walked off for like the 10th time this week. But don't make the fat guy in accounting feel the wrath of your marshmallow shooter for eating the last two donuts. Take a deep breath and take steady aim at your automatic cubicle weapon target. Fire off a barrage from your favorite compatible toy weapon, knock down all three targets and watch as the internal motor resets them for the next round. A handy mesh trap in the rear collects your ammo for later use. Feel more calm now? and hey... someone just returned your stapler.
9th Prize: The Metallic Red Ladybug Mouse
The USB ladybug mouse by Brando looks just like a real ladybug with a beautiful red body and big black dots. The wheel button can also be used as a third button and since there's no mouse ball, you won't have parts to clean.
10th Prize: The Whatever Watch
All the numbers on the watch face have fallen to the bottom of the watch. When someone asks you for the time, just point to your watch and let them figure it out for themselves.
11th Prize: Giant Microbes EColi
Need the flu? How about the Black Death? Mononucleosis? Now you can collect a host of the most adorable viruses, bacteria, mites, worms and calamities nature ever unleashed. Disturbingly cuddly, Giantmicrobes™ are great teaching aids or just friendly plush companions for those trying to get past their bacillophobia. Each comes with an image of its not-so-cute real-life counterpart and quick facts about the microbe. Measures between 5" to 7". Antibiotics not required, thank goodness.
12th Prize: Quantum Flyer
With a quick pull on the recoil-start launcher's cord, the VTOL Quantum Flyer's twin rotors lift the pilot figure up to 35ft into the sky, then floats gently back to earth. The Flyer comes fully assembled and there are never any batteries to buy because just a pull on the recoil starter cord provides all of the power needed.
13th Prize: Rock'em Sock'em Robots
The Original Fighting Robots - The classic game of Rock’Em Sock’Em Robots is back and its up to you to power the punches. Move into position and hammer your opponent’s robot until you knock his block off. Watch out though, ‘cause your block can come off, too!
14th Prize: Eggling
The precious, little eggling looks and feels like an extra large egg, but crack its top and discover a garden ready to grow! Cultivation is easy — seeds are already sown into eggling’s fortified peat mixture, just crack it’s top (by tapping on it with a spoon), water and place in bright spot.
15th Prize: Dilbert Squishy
Dilbert is probably the best known office worker out there. An engineer who loves technology, Dilbert is socially inept and often thinks that interacting with people is generally a waste of time. With his crooked tie and vacant stare, he has an irresistible charm nonetheless. This fun Dilbert stress reliever is made out of soft squishy foam. Whether you squeeze him daily or just have mundane conversations with him, this Dilbert office toy is sure to bring some amusement to you throughout the workday
