This little toy truck spins on a record and plays it. The sound quality is shit, so for $80 it’s a total rip-off. And I’m quite certain they are not licensing VW’s logo. It probably scratches the record, too. But hey, it’s neat! More info here.

LunaTik (LunaTik haha, get it?) is a case (damn it, another case!) that turns one of the new tiny iPod nanos into a watch. Of course this would look ridiculous on my slim yet strong and manly wrist. It’s a really interesting oxymoron: Wearing it makes other kids want to beat you up during recess; yet the only people large enough to wear it are the ones that nobody dares try to beat up.
TV Hat, on the other hand, will for sure get you beat up in recess. Inside that freakishly large hat you place an iPhone. There is a special lens so you can focus at such a short distance and enjoy all your adult entertainment with privacy. I didn’t make that up: the brochure specifically pitches it as a way to enjoy adult content on planes and so forth. I’m truly terrified to report that the thing is inexpensive, comfortable, and works quite well. I can see my TV-addicted dad or my iPhone-addicted niece loving one of this – while watching only appropriate material, of course.
That’s enough for part 2. Stay tuned for Macworld report part 3!
