Lady Gaga‘s music video have typically always featured some sort of high tech gadget, more often than not she has someone from the Beats by Dr. Dre line, among other things, prominently displayed. Earlier today, her Bad Romance music video was released, and we thought we’d take a moment to highlight ten sightings of tech and gadgetry that we spotted while watching.
Apple iPod classic
Hey, if you are gonna feature gadgets in a music video, you might as well bring in the iconic digital audio player that made everyone into a geek, right? The Apple iPod classic is the first gadget featured in Bad Romance. Deservedly so, we say. You can pick up the 160GB iPod classic from Apple for $249.

We were hoping that the Lumix DMC-TZ7 camera Panasonic was offering was connected with the RED (Product) line since we couldn’t find another one, but it turns out that the company is offering a limited edition because their research found that hue to be a “favored” color choice. The hybrid cam, with Intelligent Auto Mode and LEICA DC Vario-Elmar Lens is also available in black, silver or brown. You can find them all at Panasonic’s e-shop for $399.95 each.
With all the hype from the new Star Trek movie, we figured it wouldn’t be long before someone came up with a Special Edition Phone. The Nokia 5800 Star Trek Edition is a basic 5800 with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel cam and GPS. The fun starts with the wallpapers, 8 ringtones and screensavers and ends with a Phaser application. Most of the major providers will carry the phone before you go see the flick May 8.
