    Default Whats a cool electronic/gadget/gizmo to own?

    Are there any electronics for home audio/video out there that are really sweet? I always like looking for new stuff, but I can't think of anything! If yall can't either, then list the coolest gadget/electronic you own in your system!

    Heres something that looks cool for video gamers, been done before but this looks pretty sweet:

    Is there any kind of colored light/lamp you can buy that hooks up to your receiver and changes color when the music changes or anything like that?

    Not quite what you are asking for but (IMNSHO) you want either one of these:



    or one of these...



    or one of these (if you already have an analog oscilloscope)...



    Any of these is the perfect HT/listening room accessory, believe you me.

    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.

    A bass shaker is like what they use in amusement park rides - whenever there is bass in the audio, the seat you are sitting in shakes. It's a good alternative to a subwoofer, and would be great for small places in which you can't (or don't want to) have a sub in the room. Or if you don't want to annoy the neighbors but "feel" the bass.
