Every so often, we see an audio product that has us wondering, real or fake? (The AT-AT Walker Boombox comes to mind.) File Pete Verrando’s CD Turntables under that category, because if an idea like this was practical, it would’ve been filed a while ago — like, last decade. Still, there appears to be a patent on this thing, plus a few prototype photos in different colors, so perhaps Verrando’s serious after all. The other possibility is that this is just a plain old CD player with a nifty design. In that case, sign me up. No DJ skills required

Introducing Leia, Luke, Han and Boba Fett
Mimoco’s Star Wars Mimobot USB Flash drives got plenty of attention a year ago or so and now they’ve extended the series with Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Boba Fett. The Chewie and Stormtrooper models still rule in my Mimobot world though.
The Mimobots comes in three different models; 1GB for $49.95, 2GB for $69.95 and 4GB for $109.95. The new models will start shipping in January/February.
