This is the Bluetooth-enabled rear view mirror that displays incoming calls on the mirror itself and has a removable wireless headset that allows speakerphone communication or in-ear use. Calls are automatically routed to the in-ear headset when it is removed from the mirror, and return to the speakerphone when the headset is placed back into its cradle. The device connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth compatible cell phone, allowing hands-free conversations without the use of cumbersome wires and stand-alone speakers. The mirror clamps over your car's existing rearview mirror, the headset uses full-duplex noise- and echo-cancellation for clear audio, and the built-in loudspeaker is able to produce powerful sound up to 120db.
1st Prize: nuclear war USB hub
Had enough of being beaten into the submission by other USB Missile Launcher-wielding workmates? Just had a bad day with the boss? Then it's time to fall back on the ultimate sanction: the USB nuclear armageddon button. One push and... boom.
The unit - which conveniently doubles up as a four-port USB hub during peacetime - is equipped with a launch key, suitably military-looking toggle switches and, of course, the big red button, tucked under a protective flap to avoid an accidental apocalypse.
Should the balloon go up, however, and the button is pushed, the unit beeps out your four-minute warning to reach suitable shelter before... the end.

7th Prize: Glow Brick
Yep - it's a glow-in-the-dark light bulb trapped inside a solid acrylic brick. The Glow Brick recharges from energy in natural sunlight during the day and glows at night. Not only that, it is actually made with a real light bulb! That's right.
The glow-in-the-dark* pigment is trapped inside a real light bulb (just like the ones you have at home). Then the light bulb is encased in a solid block of Acrylic resin. The mysterious optical effect is caused by light diffracting in the tiny space between the glass of the light bulb and the resin - this space forms when the resin shrinks by a tiny amount during the production process. The polished surface gives a jewel like quality to the object. In a darkened room, or at night, the Glow Brick comes to life with a tranquil and subtle glow emanating from the pigment inside the light bulb.
8th Prize: The Finger Drum Mousepad
This electronic drumpad also serves as a mousepad, and allows you to play eight different percussion sounds, including bass, snare, two rack toms, a floor tom, hi-hat, crash, and ride cymbals using only your fingers. A demonstration mode allows you to accompany six pre-set patterns, and you can record up to 30 of your own rhythms. Separate volume and tempo controls allow you to adjust sound levels
9th Prize: 8-bit Tie
