Because what good is a Hello Kitty obsession if you can’t put the cat right in your eyeball, apparently Hello Kitty contacts are a real thing. You can either get one big face that takes up your whole eyeball, or a ring of little faces that go around the pupil. Me? I’m going to wear an eyepatch over one eye and get a skull and crossbones contact for the other one. I’m going to need a cutlass and some facial scars too, so if you’ve ever wanted to throw darts at someone now’s your chance. Did I ever tell you I was playing darts at a pub one time and this guy sitting on a bar stool next to me dropped one of his darts and unthinkingly tried to catch it by snapping his legs closed real fast and stabbed the point RIGHT INTO HIS FEMORAL ARTERY? When he pulled it out blood squirted all the way to the ceiling. I guarantee it’s still there too.

Exactly what would be a neat trick to round off an ideal holiday with friends, family, and– if you’re lucky– some bargain-priced tech? How about getting your smug, pleased face up on the displays in Moments Square? Not got the big business budget? No worries, as Google’s here to select up the tab as part of a Chromebook promotion, and possibly make it occur for you. Send a photo at the source link, along with a snappy “For …” caption, and you could possibly discover yourself, your mom, your cat, or football group up there for all to see. We were going to submit one of our own, however, well y’ understand, we’re still using the t-shirt.

It’s been awhile since we learned how many unique Android devices were switching on every day; the last time was at Mobile World Congress, when Google’s senior mobile VP Andy Rubin confirmed 850,000 activations a day just as we were fruitlessly practicing our Catalan. He’s now chiming in with word that the daily rate is up to 900,000 cellular-enabled phones and tablets as of June. That’s a ways off from the breakneck pace of growth in 2011, but it certainly shows that Android is no shrinking violet just yet. Rubin’s answer is ostensibly prompted by a need to debunk a rumor that he might be leaving Google — there’s “no plans” for that, he says. All the same, we’re sure he doesn’t mind ever-so-slightly deflating Apple’s balloon before WWDC 2012 kicks off tomorrow.

Waiting for the EVO 4G LTE to ship turned out to be much less of an exercise in Godot-like interminability than many subscribers once thought. That handset’s now firmly in the hands of pre-order customers and to thank them for their (presumed) patience, Sprint’s bundling a thank you gift with every parcel. As shown above, that make-good comes in the form of a smartphone case — a Superman-colored one at that — although we would’ve much preferred an extended battery. See, folks? You stand by your carrier and you get rewarded. That two-year contract had to be good for something.

Following August’s dramatic price drop for the 3DS, Nintendo has announced that, come Friday, members of its Ambassador Program will finally be able to download the ten Game Boy Advance games they were promised. The complimentary titles in question are F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Metroid Fusion, Wario Land 4 and WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames, each of which will be automatically added to your purchase history. In other news, Nintendo expects you to receive your bouquet of three dozen long-stemmed roses and promises that “It’ll never happen again” by this afternoon.
Seen here looking suspiciously like the silhouette of Bat Boy wielding a Green Lantern power ring to return to the Matrix or some shit, a drawing of a monkey plays with his virtual arm. Because monkeys can do that now. They’ve always wanted to, and now they actually can. *dodges virtual turd* I saw that, Diddy Kong!
A brain implant that allows monkeys to move an avatar’s arm and feel objects in a virtual world has been demonstrated for the first time.
The animals used the device to control the arm by thought alone, and feel the texture of the objects it touched through electrical signals sent directly to their brains.
Researchers built the system as part of a major effort to help paralysed people regain the use of their arms and legs, feeling the objects they touch and the ground they walk on.
Without any sensation of touch, it would be easy for people to crush or drop objects they were trying to grasp, or misjudge the terrain underfoot and stumble, the scientists said.
Now I know what you’re thinking, “OMG, how can I use this for sexual gratification?!” But if you could get your mind out of the smut-gutter for one second you’d realize the much more significant ramifications of this project: knowing what it feels like to have more than two arms and legs. RAWR, LOOK AT ME — I’M ANT-MAN AND I’M HERE TO RUIN YOUR PICNIC.
Thanks to Samantha, who controls her virtual arms the regular way: with an XBox controller. Awh shishi girl, what’re we playing?
Drama concerning a 7-inch slate from Acer — who woulda thunk it? After teasing the world with a (relatively) low-cost entrance back at the start of this year, Acer abruptly informed us that the Iconia Tab A100 wouldn’t ship until the latter half of 2011. Now, however, it looks like we’re honing in on yet another specific time frame. Thanks to a Facebook reply from Acer Deutschland (and prying from one Jakob Otto), we’ve now learned that the A100 is back on schedule for a September release — at least across the pond. ‘Course, only time will tell if software was the reason, but given that Android 3.2 was tailor-made for 7-inch devices, we’re cautiously optimistic that Acer’s going to reward those who waited with an updated OS.
You know who you can count on to protect your technology? Fisher Price, that’s who. We know, it sounds a bit crazy, but what other company out there is thinking about safeguarding your gadgets from those adorable yet greasy-handed kids? The company is kicking off Toy Fair with a few new gadgets that do just that, and first up, is that cute little Laugh & Learn iCan Play iPhone case up there. The $ 20 plastic enclosure stores any generation iPhone or iPod Touch and has a screen cover to protect your precious capacitive LCD from “dribbles and drool.” Seriously, OtterBox has its work cut out — the toy even has rattles and handles to entertain when mommy or daddy have to yank the phone out to make a call. And because looking at e-mails, texts, or apps could get bit boring for those three to 36-month-olds after awhile, Fisher is adding a few new Laugh & Learn apps to the App Store later this month.
What about the older kids, you ask? Well, they won’t be interested in your brand new point-and-shoot when they’ve got a Kid-Tough See Yourself Camera of their own. Or at least that’s what the company’s hoping — the plastic camera has a rotating 1.2 megapixel lens with a 4x zoom so kids can take pictures of themselves and then check it out on the 1.8-inch LCD screen. The shooter houses a SD card slot and is powered by four AA batteries. Sure, it doesn’t have the latest and greatest specs, but what $ 70 camera do you know that can customize shots with “fun digital stamps”? We told you your gadgets would stay safe and sound. The iCan Play Case and Kid-Tough camera won’t be available until this summer, but we’ve got the gallery of hands-on shots below so you can check ‘em out earlier.

Embarrassing SMS misdirect bug on your Android device? Nexus S owners should start checking their phones now for an over-the-air update that’s supposed to fix the problem. It’s being rolled out gradually, so just be patient if it’s not there yet. How will we know the problem’s gone for good? We’ll just assume so until we find out otherwise, in some unfortunate manner.
