Oh, Jason got to meet Lemmy from Motorhead? Well… we had donuts in the office today! Yeah! Take that, Jason Toon! And as for the rest of you, join me after the jump to see the latest, greatest, better-than-reality faux-verage from deep in the heart of Woot HQ. Where Lemmy WISHES he could go.


 

People like Gizmodo are talking about the new gaming tablet from Razer, but you know what? Now's not the time, we feel. Instead, save your money for a little bit longer. Why? Simple. Check out the sneak preview we scored of next year's up-and-coming 3D gaming tablet that even comes with a pre-loaded platformer! And no special glasses are required!


 

Also coming down the pipe are more instruments like the Gtar, a tool designed to let you use your iPhone as a stringed instrument. Yes, the price point is twice that of just buying an real entry level guitar, but that's not the point! The point is that we're entering the future! And that's why the iLophone will soon be appearing in jazz bands worldwide.


 

Please remember you'll need special soft-touch mallets which are not included with purchase.

The neatest thing, however, was the Pebble watch first pointed out to us by Endgadget. This e-paper style watch lets the user download apps, get text messages, and even install new watch faces. Obviously, this opens up a whole new world for pranking the strangers that peek over your shoulder to figure out what time it is.


 

Scott's here and full of recaps and lies. Jason's on the ground in Vegas, exhausted from walking. Together they make the most surly CES coverage the world has ever seen! Keep following on our blog all this week.

Wow. Just...everything about that. Wow.

Multiple phone purchases. Capacitive, non-glass-breaking mallets. Chassis. An app sale (that goes "bonk" when you touch the screen) for each note.

It lacks a subscription service for long-term revenue, though.

Monthly access to transcriptions of Lionel Hampton solos?

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

I can't believe anyone would actually buy the pebble watch. It is way too big and doesn't even curve around your wrist.

Still single, can't imagine why.

Maybe, but wait. Springboard off of that for the Player iLophone! Your (well, somebody's) favorite songs, played one note per phone.

Or, if you're just carrying one of the phones, one eighth of your favorite song, whenever you want to listen to it.

I always wanted to play Mouse Trap, everyone who had it told me how bad it was and my parents would not buy it. Thanks to the internet I know why.

Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!

Thank you! And I'm sorry, these posts are almost entirely full of nothing but lies. We didn't get donuts.
