Analogue GPS made of Lego

Lego Analogue GPS
The Lego contraption was built as an analogue GPS unit. It has a 1.6m roll inside which includes images. If it’s dark then LED lighting will switch on to give you a better picture and there is a plastic cover over the top so rain doesn’t damage the images. On the downside, it’s just a single route from someone’s home to school in case he gets lost. Still quite unique though and I must admit, quite creative.

The Original Stylophone

The Stylophone was commonly seen with Rolph Harris back in the days when he was on TV more. It’s a bizarre instrument which acts as an electric organ in your pocket. In the 70’s about 3 million of these little organs were sold. The Stylophone is battery operated and packed full of circuitry from transistors, resistors, diodes and other stuff. When you press the stylus against a metal key it makes a unique noise.

The new version now has a volume control which is good to hear. Also, you can hook it up to your MP3 player and play along to your music tracks.

The Stylophone costs £14.95 from Firebox.

Pocket Protector

This updated pocket protector can hold allsorts of items from a laser pen to an MP3 player. It comes with a 36″ nylon breakaway lanyard to wear around your neck and comes with a bunch of geeky stickers.

Would anyone actually buy this even when it costs only $5? I doubt it.

The CarCapsule is a large bubble in which you park your car in. It is made from 10 mil thick PVC and inflates around your car. A fan circulates are around the bubble to keep the air fresh. What the CarCapsule does is keeps out dirt, dust and moisture so that the car inside is kept in mint condiction.

TechLasers 125mW Green Laser Review

I was contacted two weeks ago by TechLasers asking if I wanted to review “the coolest and most powerful laser you have ever seen in your life! :-)”. Of course I agreed and a few days later an Infinite 125mW Green Laser was posted through my door.

Before I continue, I must stress that the Infinite 125mW laser is not a toy and those using it should take proper precautions and act according to the law. Also note that most red dot laser pens you get on the market for about $20 rate at around 5mW. You can see how powerful the Infinite 125mW will be – yes… it can actually burn things.

Infiniti Series

The Infiniti series laser pens come in various versions running from 15mW to 125mW. As the laser steps up in power, you will see more can be done with the pen. The 125mW version is capable of the following… Laser beam dot is visible, Laser beam is visible at night, Laser beam is visible in day light, Can burn holes in black plastic, Pop black or dark balloons, Stings bare skin, Light matches, Can burn/cut black electrical tape, Melt rubber and some plastics.

The Laser Pen

The laser comes in a nice presentation box. On opening the box you find the laser pen which looks very sleek. It is almost completely black with the exception of gold coloured ends and a gold clip. The warning sticker on the end lets you know not to look in to the path of the beam and to use with caution. The laser pen uses 2 * AAA batteries to function which can keep the device powered for about 3 hours. Considering that they are AAA they are more readily available then the usual button cell batteries most laser pens use.

Indoor Testing

Indoor Green Laser

This photo was taken indoors with the lights off. As can be seen the green laser beam can clearly be seen as well as the dot which pretty much lights up the whole room. One thing to be careful of is hitting mirrors or anything reflective as it doesn’t do your eyes any good. Using this laser is like having star wars in your living room. It honestly is seriously cool.

Outdoor Testing

Outdoors Laser Pen

Although this picture is not too clear (I will take another one tomorrow evening), you can clearly see the green laser beam right in to the sky. Tests show that you can shine a dot on an object a long way from you. I will get measurements this weekend and get more demonstrations of it’s sheer power uploaded.


TechLasers sell some seriously powerful laser pens. Everybody who has seen it has been amazed at it’s power and what it can do. If you are looking for a decent powerful laser pen then do check out TechLasers.
