Gadgets with FACES #195: DXG 3D View

It’s a stereo 3D camcorder, and this is what you’ll see while a man’s filming you from underneath the adjoining wall of your toilet cubicle:

“Not only a face, it’s a living organism, it’s checking you out while you hold it. From Engadget. Thats all” – Stelios.

GigerPunk’s amazing ‘stream-of-consciousness’ business trip findings

Poor old reader “GigerPunk” has submitted documentary evidence of what would appear to be a complete and total mental breakdown, experienced during a work trip in an authentic ‘Alan Partridge’ style.

Watch the very fabric of a man’s being deteriorate, AS LIVE!

OPENING PREAMBLE:
“I’ve been stuck on a training course in London for the past week, saw some things whilst there I thought you might like so brought them back for you. Call ‘em souvenirs if you like.”

hotel keyboard face

“The keyboard for the overpriced Internet access in my hotel room. Turned it over to check for batteries but they’d put a sticker on it that I was too chicken to break the seal on, so I’ll never know what batteries it held now :(

hotel keyboard face flipped

“It DID however, have a smiley face, so think that make have made up for it a bit?”

cigarette bin face

“Whilst out on a pub crawl round the financial district, I saw this cigarette bin that I HAD to grab a photo of.”

“Then over lunch the next day, I thought I’d get a better photo, sober, in daylight. Not sure if it reminds me more of V.I.N.cent / B.O.B. from the Black Hole, or Hack and Slash from Reboot. I think closer to the latter now I come to actually examine some pics.”

“Then, round Paddington station, saw this mono-nostrilled pig smoking a fag.”

pink cake box

“And once home again at the end of the week and picking up some shopping, saw this ‘kawaii’ cake box.”

pacman potato

“And this potato attempting to be Pacman.”

hotel room remote

“And whilst the internet keyboard in the hotel was a no-go, the TV remote was a different matter.”

Did the “slowly getting closer and closer” thing you like…”

hotel room remote battery and industrial landscape

“…and a teasing little peek inside the battery cover before revealing all, and ending with some (poorly focused) shots of the batteries admiring the view across the east end.”

green cell

They’ve already been covered a couple of years ago – but I didn’t know that at the time as I refused to pay the 10 quid per night internet access charge, I couldn’t pickup any other wireless signals in the vicinity (and wasn’t going to lug my old Tosh laptop round to try and find one) and couldn’t connect anything to the PC on my training course. Figured what the heck I’ll include them anyway, the story behind it all may be handy as it’ll mean less to type…”

“Anyway, think that’s everything now, pretty sure you don’t want pictures of strange green teas from Dim-Sum bars or strange green pints of beer from the Magpie pub, let alone my video review of my hotel room/checking for bedbugs on check-in…I’ve got some catching up to do now with email, support tickets raised in my absence and a week’s worth of UK:R, Extra-Last and SexyExecs to read… (Oh yeah, and usual caveats about picture quality apply, I only had a Nokia N73 on me…)” – GigerPunk.

Gadgets with FACES #193: A bit of a trousers tag

Aren’t these tags supposed to be removed in the shop, Mike? Have you been stealing trousers and melting/smashing off the security tags?

trouser spy

“One trouser spy with face. This is an extreme close up of the chip embedded in a Marks & Spencer’s RFID ‘intelligent label’ that was attached to a rather dull pair of trousers. Not only does it have a face but it was ‘watching me’. Spooky” – Mike.

Gadgets with FACES #192: An ice maker

We’re starting to get nervous about the big 2-0-0 Gadgets with FACES update that’s approaching. Might have to take the camera out to Currys to capture something special. Not that Kirk’s ice maker here isn’t special – it’s rare to see such a proportionate nose.

WARNING: Kirk’s description is extremely graphic.

ice-maker-face

“This is the ice maker we got with our new fridge. It has an odd lightup mouth, but it is extraordinarily good at making and holding ice. You have to pull his forehead out and fill his brain with water, then once it is frozen you can twist his eyes and it falls into his mouth. The ice cube tray on top is the much more exciting space invaders one
someone gave me” – Kirk.

Gadgets with FACES #191: Thodio A-Box bulletproof speakers

Not only a Gadget with a FACE, but also a rare entrant in the category of Gadgets You Could Conceivably Fuck in the MOUTH.

thodio-a-box

Sorry about the swear word in paragraph one. We’re assuming that only the long-term unemployed are reading this any more, so there’s no point maintaining any sort of pretence or aura of dignity.

thodio-a-box-evil-twin

And here’s its evil twin. Photos stolen from the site we can’t but always refer to as Gizmondo.

Gadgets with FACES #190: The office hole punch

Don’t be alarmed. At first there appears to be NO FACE here, but that’s because this is an extremely specialist observation performed from a very acute angle.

holepunch-side

“Here’s something for your “Gadgets with Faces” section of the Extra-Last website: the office hole punch. Enjoy!” – Joey.

holepunch-top

Oh yes, there IS a face. We can only wonder how bored you have to be to examine a hole punch from this particular angle. It must all suddenly pop into view, like the Channel 4 logo does on the pre-show idents.

Andy’s miscellaneous facial finds

Andy has found a better set of kitchen scales with a face.

Can someone with access to a time machine travel back in time to 1984 and tell the young us to pay more attention to maths and physics in school, to avert a desperate future life where we spend all day fielding emails about kitchen equipment with what looks like faces on them? Thanks.

andy-finds-faces-4

“Those kitchen scales with a face the other day were a bit rubbish. Have a PROPER kitchen thing with a face – a pressure cooker lid.”

andy-finds-faces-3

“It has a face on both sides. I had to angle the one photo so you cant see my mug in the reflection.”

andy-finds-faces-2

“Also, I was playing Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and saw an advert for ‘something’.”

andy-finds-faces-1

“As a bonus – have a picture of a car dashboard that looks a bit like Darth Vader, and has many faces depending on how you look at it. Cant remember if I sent you this one before. Should be plenty enough to keep the site running for one more painful day. I’ve given you the original files off my camera because i know you like reading EXIF data” – Andy

EXIF UNKNOWN
The EXIF data is coming up as blank for us. But given that the photos came out at a resolution of 800 x 600, we suspect the involvement of Sony Ericsson.

Gadgets with FACES #189: Typhoon kitchen scales

Haven’t got around to installing the EXIF data tool on the laptop just yet, so we can’t confirm which camera “Darren” used to take this photo. But, as he was at a “party” on a Saturday night, it was probably an iPhone.

typhoon-scales-face

“I was at a party last night and I noticed this wee beauty sitting in the corner. I had to wait till morning to get the shot. He looks like he can’t wait to weigh my peaches” – Darren.

Gadgets with FACES #188: A man’s razor

Looks to be a prestige ‘King of Shaves’ model, the razor for men who are trying to impress the checkout lady with how much money they spend on personal grooming, hinting at the fact that they’re obviously also neat and tidy “down below” should they be interested in checking it out and seeing if the wrinkles on it scan through the barcode machine, say, after work on Thursday?

But it’s not a gadget and it’s strangely unsettling to see another man’s towel. 3/10.

king-shaves-face

“While shaving a picture of a kitten into my MANLY STUBBLE, I
was shocked to discover another face, dangerously close to my own” – Snortacus.

Gadgets with FACES #187: An unknown thing

Sent in by a “Ben” who didn’t even bother with any sort of accompanying explanation, apology, excuse or insult. It’s this sort of apathy that hurts the most.

TS319 AV2

The image is called “TS319_AV2″ which leads us to suspect it’s a redesigned 9 Walt Nail Gel UV Lamp (TS319). Although that’s is only our finest bit of Google journalism at work, so we may be wrong there.
