LG’s new W53 Monitors certainly have earned the distinction of being named SMART. Each features Auto Brightness which automatically optimizes that and other picture settings, Cinema Mode, which blacks out everything except the video clip, and even a timer that reminds the user to take a break. A proximity sensor knows when a hand is near and activates lights to make it easier to find the buttons and turns them off when it is gone. The displays will be available from 18.5 to 27-inches, with those larger than 21.5 in HD. Look for them to come out this month.

Forget about those super safe digital cams. The Superheadz Babylon 4 is a unique camera that features 4 different modes. The first is action and shoots four frames in sequence. The 2nd captures all four at once, while the 3rd mode shoots first the top two, then the bottom two. Finally the 4th catches one frame at a time. The cam has an advanced electronic system that keeps track of exposures and has a flash and power winding. You can get a black Babylon 4, that comes with case, strap, 1 roll of film and batteries for $99.99.

If you still have one USB port left to fill with a toy, you might want to add the Boxer. Play with him in three different modes, auto, manual, and keystroke. The most amusing aspect of this device is that you control his punches with enclosed software and your arrow keys. Each hit is marked on his counter and you can rotate him to vary his workout. Add the bell and some crowd noises, and you have the definitive answer to interactive boredom. The dude will set you back £29.99 (~$59.00,) but at least this time you get to work out some of your cubicle frustration with some results.
