Double Rainbow Maker, $25
My friend got this for me as a gift. I was secretly like "eh, really, a meme gift" but its surprisingly awesome! It a small solar powered mobile that suctions to any window. With enough light energy it creates a ton of rainbows that move around the room (rotating with its small solar-powered gears).
Found a good video of it on YouTube in action:
Mr Ellie Poohs Recycled Elephant Poop Products
Okay, realize this isnt so much a gadget as it is quirky - but we like those kinda things too. I'm crazy about the science that goes in to creating these really cool journals -100% handcrafted, 100% recycled, 50% pachedyrm dung. Yup, thats right total crap. For a unique gift I recommend the journals, note cards or greeting cards. Plus, it should be noted it's a small family run business, yay.
Bombata Laptop/Tablet Bags
While it doesnt beat my mom's custom hand created gems like my Pac-Man bag. I am totally in to this gadget carryall. There are various sizes but I got the iPad size and it fits way more than that. It stores my MacBook Air 11", iPad2, 3DS and a bevy of other small gadgets like Nano, headphones, etc. It's also incredibly durable and has that nice quality look to it.
Green Lantern Power Ring Kit, $8.99
Got to sport this on an Early Show segment! It appears they are sold out online but they definitely have them in store. Ring blinks with the press of a button but batteries are not replaceable.
On my want list.
Voice Activated R2D2, $172
The voice activated Droid has more than 40 commands (my favorite being "Hey R2, dance"). With built in sensors R2 can follow you, patrol the place or sound an alarm when motion is detected.
Make sure you catch the video.
