The lava lamp goes 21rst Century with the LaserPod - $99.99
ThinkGeek.com - $99.00 - The Laserpod is one of the most innovative lighting products to hit the scene since peace, love, and understanding were the only things to strive for. These days there are more interesting things to strive for. For example every self-respecting geek realizes life would be empty without interacting with the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos and doodads. Enter the Laserpod, it's a veritable cornucopia of techno-appeal. This desktop sized device splits three electronic lasers and three high-intensity blue and ultraviolet LEDs, then throws them into a hand-cut faceted crystal to create some of the most unique and memorable mood lighting you'll ever witness.

Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder w/ 160GB Hard Drive - $339.99
Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder w/ 160GB Hard Drive Buy.com has the Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder (including a 160GB hard drive and DVD recorder) for $339.99. I'm VERY tempted. I usually try to avoid things that will make me watch more television. I rarely video tape anything since the X-Files went off the air. However, Law and Order (the original) qualifies. I'm just afraid I'll end up with 200 hours of episodes to watch! LOL! Anyway, this is a pretty cool unit. The number one reason I like it is that it does NOT require a subscription! It also uses the TV Guide On Screen information. You can dump information from a video camera to this unit. And, it has a built-in DVD recorder that does DVD-R and DVD-RAM (it does not appear to do dual-layer, though.) The biggest downside is that it does not have a "network" connection. For this kinda money, I expect my gadgets to be networkable! :-)
Here are some stats on this little jewel. TV Guide On Screen 8-day program guide (listings for local broadcast and cable TV). Built-in 160GB hard drive for recording/playback. Records to DVD-RAM and DVD-R. Digital video (IEEE 1394) input for use with compatible camcorders. Plays DVD-Video, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and Video CD. Plays DVD-Audio (stereo only), CD, audio CD-R & CD-RW, and MP3 CD-R & CD-RW. SD Card slot for displaying or transferring JPEG or TIFF digital photos. PC Card (Type II) slot for other memory card types (adapter not included). Progressive-scan mode for smoother video with HD-compatible TVs (via the component video output). De-interlacer with 3-2 pulldown processing. 54MHz/10-bit video DAC. 181-channel NTSC tuner. VCR Plus+®, timer, and manual recording. IR blaster for timer recordings with a cable box. Two stereo audio recording modes: Dolby® Digital 2.0 and PCM. Optical digital output for Dolby Digital/DTS®/PCM. 3 sets of A/V inputs (composite and S-video), including 1 front-panel set. 2 sets of A/V outputs (2 composite, 2 S-video, and 1 480i/480p component video). RF input/output. Remote control (multibrand for TVs).
