If I could have any toy in the world...

I would go for these... **deep sigh**

1. Crystal Growing Kit

This kit has everything you need to grow 4 different types of crystal formations. Three of them grow in clusters and the fourth is a solitary crystal specimen. Growing crystals is super easy too, so you'll be having fun and enjoying the glittering fruits of your labor in hours and days (which is incredible considering it takes the Earth millions and millions of years). Take that, Planet Earth! And this crystal kit is the gift that keeps on giving, as once you've made your crystals, you can share (or sell) them. Learning and profit all rolled into one - isn't science grand?

2. Edge Robotic Arm Kit
With a bit of tinkering, and no soldering you'll have a passable replacement for your own meaty appendage. Five axes of robotic movement are at your command with the wired remote. Command the gripper to open and close, wrist motion of 120 degrees, an extensive elbow range of 300 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, base motion of 180 degrees, vertical reach of 15 inches, horizontal reach of 12.6 inches, and lifting capacity of 100g. whew!
 
3. MSI GX740 Gaming Notebook
You get a 17-inch screen with a 1680 x 1050 resolution, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD. The notebook has an ATI HD 5870 graphics card with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM. Power comes from a 9-cell battery and the machine uses a new Intel Core i5 CPU according to the MSI website. Apparently, other configurations will be offered as well.



4. Flying Alarm Clocks

When it is time to rise and shine, you can not procrastinate with this little baby in the room. As the alarm goes off, it starts it propeller and takes off around the room. You must get up and chase it or you might be dived bombed at some point by the swirling copter. This is an innovative job by the folks over at GetDigital. We look forward to seeing their next creation . . .
 5. Alien: Facehugger!
**grinning from ear to ear**


6. Understand the Large Hadron Collider With a Spectacularly Detailed Pop-up Book Voyage to the Heart of Matter: The Atlas Experiment at CERN is a collaboration between authors Emma Sanders and Anton Radevsky that was produced with the assistance of “nearly 40 physicists” who “provided scientific guidance, photos, and sketches of various parts.”
If anyone knows of a simpler, better way to describe the principals behind the Large Hardon Collider, I’d like to hear it.


As my mum would say ''hazaaron khwaishain aisi'' :S:S

interesting list, especially the facehugger (lol @ the name :P)..
btw no.3, the gaming notebook, why would you want that? Ok the specs are nice but that will be best used by those who play high end pc games, do you play?

@Ahmar
Yeah, the name's too funny and the concept is fun too :). The gaming notebook I would love to have not for gaming (although once or twice would be okay :P).. but the fact is that the processor and graphics card would be excellent in other 3D related stuff. Like programming :D.. (and simulations)... sigh.
What a dream.

Thanks for dropping by!

I want a flying alarm clock :D Funny how these things are coming up. Once saw an alarm clock that just runs away from you in random directions, and another one that doesn't stop ringing unless you answer a complex mathematical equation..just to ensure you're wide awake.

Also that robo arm is good to play with

Yeah, a flying alarm clock should be really really useful *gloomily*.. I never seem to get up on time (my mobile phone alarm isn't strong enough sigh). But math equation one :D.. hey, that's so cool! Imagine the nihaar-muun brain exercise!

Thanks for dropping by!
