Christmas is just around the corner…

Its an understated fact that the major holiday sales don't start until after October, leading on into the infamous Black Friday Sales Day  — the largest sales campaign in the nation leading into the Christmas holiday.  As such, I'd like to preemptively strike with these (hopefully) coming-to-a-store-near-you holiday gift ideas!  Let's get the ball rolling, shall we?


First off, we have the Optimus Tactus keyboard, the successor to the $1600 Optimus Maximus all-LCD keyboard!  This keyboard, while still in concept design (aw shucks!), boasts the first key-less design ever.  Afraid of all that gunk getting in-between each key from cheeto fingers?  Fear no more!  This is the keyboard that's so futuristic, even Chekov from the original Star Trek Enterprise would give a thumbs up!


Perhaps keyboards aren't your thing.  How about Yanko's first ever concept virtual LCD palette for the artist in your household?  Never again will pesky paints and liquids harass your bedroom floor!  Free yourself from purchasing needless tools and brushes and save yourself from punching a hole in your wallet!  Unfortunately its still in concept form, but hopefully it'll come out before Christmas 2009!


Next up, for the gamer in your household!  Remember those old Pac-Man arcade cabinets of the 80's?  Now you can own your very own top-down MAME arcade table!  The specs, taken from the website include:

Available in walnut or oak finish, Surface Tension’s new Arcade Coffee Table has a 19” LCD screen concealed within the glass panel on the top, while other controls are under the table. Compatible with MAME emulation software, the retro arcade machine features Shuttle PC, dual core CPU, 2GB RAM, 160GB of hard drive, 2 sets of controls, Happ arcade buttons, Happ illuminated trackball, Sanwa joysticks, and volume controls.

Wow!  All this for the low low price of $5000 U.S. dollars!  A steal, for sure!

And lastly, in case these great gift ideas don't put a soft spot in your wallet, you might want to check out these other delicious gadgets posted over the web: The I-Ching inspired Oracle Watch, and the Fate/Stay Night mouse with built-in anime models. 

Have a happy holiday shopping season!

    Lol, I think you might be better off going with Heather's recommendation than any of mine (unless you have millions saved up in your bank, which I heartily recommend you share them with me)!
