The ultimate gift?
I bet out there someone is wondering "well, you have Star Wars on there, and a levitating speaker...where is my levitating Death Star Speaker?!".

Well, at least I'm wondering that.

Re: waffles
OMG!! A keyboard waffle iron! LOL

Talk about geeky! That would be the best annyversay present my wife could give me.

I can already imagine being in front of my computer, looking at the news while eating my keyboard waffles :)

Add in some smartphone shape muffins and eggs in the shape of a tablet and you got youself the most important meal of the day

2D for me
I'll take the keyboard waffle iron and the 2d glasses. I'm also one of the people who can't watch 3d movies.

levitating speakers
Even at the same sound quality as regular speakers, very nice, indeed. Talking about ingenuity. I hope the levitating speakers take off ;) pun intended.

In case someone wonders, it seems that the Om/One is ready to ship at the beginning of the next year, for $199.00

Can I mount the shoes on my windshield?
I can attach it to my windshield and use it instead of my regular GPS? If I am really angry at someone, I will just throw my shoe GPS  at them. If a cop stops you for traffic, he might not like if you reach for your shoe  GPS.

@ zaious

Haha! I like your way of thinking...just be careful if a cop stops you and you reach for the shoe  GPS, you may get shot or tazed!

music lifts me up
So I love the levitating speakers.Just a question, I am assuming battery power helps the levitation what happens when the battery is low, do the dissent quickly or could crash or smash.

The waffle iron is clever! I wouldn't mind waking up to a keyboard waffle on Christmas morning.

Star Wars Towels
@David, " Personally I'm sad these weren't around when I got married."  Do not be sad, be very thankful that they didn't exist.  I did this to my wife once and started a fight.  She's never seen any of the Star Wars movies and I had to break out the VHS version of Empire and play the scene for her (yes this was before movies on DVD).  She still didn't get it but at least she knew I wasn't just being difficult for no reason.

Re: Star Wars Towels
@SaneIT- Hilarious. Clearly, this was why Youtube was invented. :)

My wife would get the joke, but I suspect she still wouldn't have wanted it on the registry. Now all we've got to show for it is grown up stuff like flatware and dishes. :)

Re: Star Wars Towels
I thought it was perfect timing, I was putting my coat on to go clear the driveway on one of the coldest days of the year.  I have to agree that YouTube is a great tool for people like me who like to toss out movie quotes and then end up having to explain them later.  We had a very boring wedding registry too but I'm not sure I'd change much about it.  I still have a lot of those boring things from many years ago, but the N64 I bought that same year is long gone.

Re: Star Wars Towels
@SaneIt-You are better at getting rid of electronics than me. I still have my N64 in a box in a closet for no good reason.
