Needless to say, this is the latest addition to the hugely popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphone family from Monster, and from the name itself, you can tell that Diddybeats were created in conjunction with music entrepreneur and fashion icon Sean “Diddy” Combs.

In fact, to sweeten the deal, each purchase of the Diddybeats will net you a “ticket” with an online promotional code which allows one to receive a free track download of the hit single “Hello Good Morning” from Diddy-Dirty Money’s upcoming album Last Train to Paris. You will be among the first to enjoy this song, considering the album itself is scheduled for release on June 28 from Bad Boy Records and Interscope Records. Those who enter their special code can get the free download here. http://diddybeats.com/track/default.aspx.

Diddybeats will feature advanced audio technologies which break new ground for in-ear headphone performance, where you will benefit from a combination of the deepest bass tones with the clarity of high frequency production, ensuring that they are the ideal pair for use with all types of music, regardless of whether you are rooting for the hip-hop genre or prefer to rock it out, or even enjoy more mellow jazz and classical tunes. The remarkable sonic performance is made possible courtesy of the use of new materials and innovative patent pending designs, letting users to enjoy details in their music which they may never had heard before. Of course, a lot of it also depends on bitrate quality, so lossless files would do best.

You’ll also up your style ante with the Diddybeats since they come in an exclusive Sean John-inspired travel case not to mention an assortment of eartips to ensure maximum comfort and fit for every wearer. With a flat flat cable design that integrates into the overall look and feel of the headphones, tangles are a thing of the past with this pair. Any takers?

Music For Deaf People Collar

The first time I learned Beethoven had a bit of a hearing problem, I was baffled as to how he managed to go on with his music career.  It’s been said that he listened through vibrations in the floor to discover different things like to find out if the audience really liked his work.  Using vibrations to “hear” isn’t an entirely uncommon concept for anyone who is deaf, which does still make this concept a little odd.  Then again, it’s not exactly far fetched either.  This collar is meant to give music to the deaf by using those vibrations to trigger the right area of the brain, allowing them to listen.

This collar was done by a German designer who wanted the deaf to be able to at least feel the music.  It converts auditory input into vibrations that trigger the same sound-processing area of the brain as someone with functioning hearing.  Whether or not it will really catch on is debatable, but it’s an interesting concept at the very least.

Polk Audio Atrium Outdoor Speakers

When it comes to outdoor audio there is no limit to your options.  This particular option has a little bit of a leg up with it having a great deal of versatility as far as the usage goes.  Instead of just being forced to sit on a stand on some corner of your patio, it has a few different ways to be mounted out in your outdoor living area.

It has the obvious stand that makes it great for tabletop usage.  Then it also has a stake to go into the ground and it can even dangle from the ceiling of your porch.  Either way the two small speakers let you choose the best way to listen in.  If you’re worried about it getting thumped by the lawn mower out in your yard, there’s also a shock absorbing gasket to help with those situations.  There’s also the Atrium Sub10, which is a 200watt subwoofer with a 10 inch “Long Throw” Driver.  It’s completely weatherproof, can be painted the color of your choosing and can be used as a stand to hold anything under 200lbs.  The whole set can be picked up for about $500 through Amazon.

Protect 486 puts a protective shell around a scooter

This is from designer Marc Graells Ballve, and, as you may have guessed, it is some anti-theft device for scooters.

Clearly, the designer gets his inspiration from nature with the armadillo as the armor can retract like that animal’s armor.

I have no idea how heavy this armor is, but it looks pretty light, almost like plastic. I’m guessing that it requires some sort of lock at the bottom so the shell is secure.

He was obviously inspired by something else, the Batman movie by Tim Burton. Some of you remember in the first film, where Batman says “shields”, and those steel plates come up and protect the Batmobile from theft or people that just want to steal the tires.

I remember that the “shield” effect from the film looked a little fake, probably done with stop-and-go animation. The effect was done somewhat better in the sequel, Batman Returns, but it didn’t quite look right.

Anyway, this Protect 486 is a good proof of concept at least. I would imagine that it would protect the scooter from the rain, at least.

Maybe one day there will be one of these shells on every scooter. Seeing them parked together will be like a giant armadillo invasion.

Rolling Superman Simulator

I remember I was at some fair, and they had this metal ball thing that people put me in with straps, and then my friends, including my daughter, rolled me.

This looks like nearly the same concept as the Rolling Superman Simulator. There is no rolling upside down on this, but the user’s own weight keeps them level as they roll across the ground.

Okay, does anyone else think that this looks dangerous? This looks like something that Wile E. Coyote would use to catch a roadrunner, only to have his poor self dragged through the canyon.

I also don’t think that you can call this a Superman Simulator because doesn’t Clark usually fly a little higher than 3 feet off of the ground? Maybe this is made for Smallville’s Clark Kent, who, for some odd reason, still hasn’t flown in his nine season series of adventures.

Yeah, this is one of those DIY gadgets, and one of those where the kid really wants to try it out, while the parent would want to keep the tykes out of the thing altogether. At least the kid in this photo is wearing gloves so his hands don’t drag on the ground and get “pavement-burn”. I wonder if he is using his hands to guide him along.

This is a hoverboard that really works

Hopefully, you remember the most recent flying car that we reported on, the YEE. I believe that I mentioned how it is almost 2015, and we don’t have all of the cool stuff shown us in Back to the Future II.

Flying cars is just one example, and the other is hoverboards. I once heard that before the successful film sequel was released, there was an attempt to start a rumor saying that hoverboards were real, and that the only reason why they weren’t on the market was because too many parents’ rights groups complained.

According to the Back to the Future DVD 3-disk collection, hoverboards are not real, until now, at least. A French artist named Nils Guadagnin has made one, and it uses an electromagnetic system to levitate the board itself and then lasers to stabilize it.

Unfortunately, the hoverboard won’t support a human being’s weight as yet. Hopefully this is one technologies that will be improved. I noticed that the artist gave the hoverboard a pink coating. He clearly wants Mattel to pick this up and market it to little girls, like the one in Back to the Future II. Yes, I’m looking forward to a hoverboard in the near future, and who knows, maybe using my foot to propel it will actually work.

Mionix NAOS 3200 gaming mouse ups your game

Or so that is what it is supposed to do. The Mionix NAOS 3200 gaming mouse is the latest bad boy in town, where it is constructed out of purported “carefully selected high-end components.” Not too sure what those components are, but perhaps it is some sort of latent metal that might help provide a faster reaction in your neurons to shoot your opponent before he/she can register which button to press? Well, being a gaming mouse, the Mionix NAOS 3200 comes with standard bells and whistles such as High DPI (up to 3,200 resolution), internal memory that allows you to save various game settings to use it on other computers without having to go through the monotony of setting up the control schemes again, flashy LEDs to look menacing, an adjustable polling rate up to 1000MHz, and 7 buttons that offers added flexibility. It will retail for €55 – any takers?

Star Wars Iron Man 2 Lamp Clock and MP3 Dock

We’re not too sure why this is called the Star Wars Iron Man 2 Lamp Clock and MP3 Dock, as there really isn’t any Star Wars reference to it at all. Perhaps it is a prophecy of things to come, where Tony Stark could actually go up against Darth Vader using a suit which is resistant to being manipulated by the Force? Who knows? What we do know is, this is one cute little Iron Man lamp that sports the Mark VI armor, where it also doubles up as an alarm clock to help you get out of bed and realize that in a million years you will never be able to measure up to Tony Stark’s lavish playboy lifestyle. Apart from that, you can plug it up to a compatible MP3 player to turn this into a speaker – now how’s that for functionality? Place a $49.99 pre-order today and watch it ship later this September.
