The Karakuri Japanese Tea Serving Mechanical Robot

Japanese Tea RobotWe love all our geek toys but, this got our attention, the moment we saw it.

It's a Japanese, Karakuri Mechanical Doll of the Flourishing Edo period or more precisely a  mechanical doll restored based on the book written in the Edo period (for those who don't know the Japanese Edo period was from the years 1603 to 1867). The doll carries tea to a customer and lowers the tea onto the a teacup. No batteries, purely mechanical.

No wonder then Japanese invented the Walkman and all the coolest gadgets. This one is for sale in Japan for 5900 Yen. 

Remote Control Pirate Ship

Want to play pirate? Here's an interesting toy to gift yourself this year - the remote controlled pirate ship. Resembling a 18th century merchant ship, this RC ship has sails that hoist, 12 cannons, retractable plank and a traditional Calico Jack Rackam's Jolly Roger flag to complete the look.

The remote works up to 500' away and the rechargable battery included  can keep the ship running for up to 6 hours on a full charge. Really a cool RC toy to have. For US$329.95 from here

Super Mario Keychains

Super Mario Keychains
We used to spend hours playing Super Mario Bros on Nintendo consoles for hours at a stretch and maybe if you were like us you did it, finding hidden 1Up mushrooms, avoiding the devilish owls and jumping over flying ducks.  Now, here's a way to carry some of those characters with you, on your keychain.

Imported straight from Japan, these squishy Super Mario keychains feature  characters from the Super Mario brothers gang, which include the 1Up mushroom and the Owl. 

It's a great and cheap gift (at US$ 3.99 a piece from here) for a geek friend or yourself. Too bad that you  can't choose a specific one while buying; you get a random one from the set of 6.
