Justin Bieber Baby Singing Doll saleAs much as we hate to admit it, Justin Bieber is all the rage right now, and the new Bieber singing dolls are going to be one of the hottest sellers this holiday season, so we've gotta include it in our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. Currently available for pre-order, if you check Amazon, you'll find ridiculously high resale prices, which we'd recommend you stay away from. Instead, go with Target. They've got the whole collection of the Bieber dolls for $25.99 each. They'll ship on December 12, which gives plenty of time to arrive--just make sure you purchase soon, because they'll sell out for sure.

There are a myriad of camcorders, you’ve got devices and the that can shoot in high definition, even high-end DSLRs can now shoot great video.

Both have some nice qualities, as you’ll see in the video. You know you wanna watch.

Star Wars Soundboard

Looking for a way to spice up those annoying conversations with some call-center hack in Puna, India who is trying to sell you a cel-phone upgrade?  Well look no further, Lando, your savior is here in the guise of the Star Wars Soundboard.  The soundboard contains numerous links to .wav files of your favorite characters most memorable lines, from everyone’s pre-pubescent fantasy Princess Leia, all the way to random only-nerds-know-who-the-hell-I-am-talking-about Aayla Secura.  So treat yourself!  Call up that cell phone call center and torture them with Wookie-talk interspersed with cursing from Han Solo.

Tv Poltergeist

Want to piss off your friends with more than just your abrasive personality and obnoxious hygiene habits or complete lack thereof?  Yes, it is rude to clip your toenails in someone else’s living room, genius; what are you, five?  If you feel the need to step up your toxicity—to neutron bomb your friendships, poisoning the landscape for decades to come and leaving behind a barren landscape of people hating the very mention of your name in your wake—then look no further: the TV Poltergeist is the gadget for you.  The TV Poltergeist is a battery-powered and easily hide-able palm-sized piece of hardware with a tiny, flexible LED that you can point towards the TV of your intended victim.  Once you turn it on the TVP will randomly emit a signal via the LED and shut your future ex-friend’s TV off.  Works on just about any TV—CRT, Plasma, LCD—just not your Gramma’s 30 year-old knob-operated Zenith, though if you pull this stunt on your Gramma a) you’re an a$$ and b) expect to get written out of the will and hit with a cane.  That woman lived through 5 wars and walked 40 miles to kindergarten everyday.  Show some respect!

Scene It! Deluxe Simpsons Edition

It’s no secret that Scene It? is one of the most popular game series around, and this holiday we are recommending Scene It? The Simpsons Deluxe Edition. It’s been getting rave reviews as one of the best Scene It? titles to be released, and hey, it’s The Simpsons. The show has been around for 20 years, which means parents can play this with kids and have a good time. The game features material from the show’s first 19 seasons on the air, has hundreds of questions, and has four collectable tokens. You can pick up Scene It? The Simpsons Deluxe Edition for $29.99. Best. Scene It. Ever.

Honorable Mentions:
Scene It? Twilight Edition: Yeah, we know a lot of the ladies out there are on a vampire kick thanks to Twilight. Guys, you may want to consider this one.
Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen!: Would you rather play scene it on the Xbox 360 rather than using a DVD player? This is the one you’ll want.

What you see here is a video from the Robo-One humanoid robot competition in Japan, with a real-life transformer.  The Omnizero.9, designed by Takeshi Maeda at Vstone, is a 3.5 foot tall, 55 pound . As you can see from the above video, it can transform into a rolling vehicle, and can even hold a person’s weight on their shoulders.  We’ve got another video of the robot after the jump, where you can watch it beat down another robot. 3.5 foot tall, 55 pound robot beating up another robot. That’s one bad Deceptacon.

Evoia Robot Toy Breaks Battery Record

The toy robot, Evoia, that you see in the picture here has actually broken two Guinness World Records.  The first was its climb of the Grand Canyon, and the other is the “longest distance covered by a battery-operated remote controlled model car”. 

Yes, you can watch the YouTube video below of Evoia trailing a car going 0.6 miles per hour on the historic Le Mans race track.  It traveled for 24 hours, covering 14.82 miles, on just two EVOLTA AA alkaline batteries. 

I’ll be Evoia is feeling good about itself, and I’m sure the Energizer Bunny wants to kill him.
