05/04/2012 | Nicholas Griffin
Here at TechNutty we like to keep you informed of all the great tech you want to know about, so in order to do this better we are starting our new segment called TechNutty Wish List, in this list we will feature all the cool tech that caught our eye this week, after which you can vote for which item you would like to see next week.
Wooden Floppy Disk Coasters
If you are old enough you may remember inserting one of these humongous floppy disk in your equally huge computer, now the only good thing we could find for them is protecting your coffee table from stains. These wooden floppy disk coasters start out as a piece of birch wood, after which Vectorcloud will laser engrave them with retro details and then covered with a matte finish.
The coaster sized at 3.25″x3.25″ sell for $37 which is about £23 here in the UK, you can pick yours up from Etsy today but you will have to do it quick as they are in short supply.
Angry Birds Remote Control Helicopter
You may recognise Angry Birds for the mobile game in which you shoot birds at pigs in order to rescue you eggs, well this next item on the wish list is a little more fun than that, as after all whats more fun the flying an Angry Birds Helicopter around the house.
Fitted with dual counter rotor blades at the top, and the red angry bird fitted as the body below, this helicopter is great for both indoor and outdoor play.
The body of the helicopter is also made from an impact resistant plastic so is good for kids of ages eight and above, as well as this the copter measures in at 20 x 20 x 12.5 cm and can be controlled in the usual helicopter motions (up, down, right, left)
Roku 2 XS
This next product on the wish list is one we have had our eyes on for quite some time now and is called the Roku 2 XS. Capable of up to 1080p HD video, the Roku streaming player allows you to watch films and TV programmes, live sports, music, games and more on your HDTV instantly.
As well as the some great streaming options the Roku 2 XS is also really easy to set up, allowing you to content it to the internet via an Ethernet connection or a wireless one. Mix this with some great apps including Angry Birds and Netflix and you have the home entertainment system you need.
