What if you forget to turn off your “Gun Control Security Camera[s]” before walking in the house? You’ll find that and other weird inventions after the break. If we happened to miss any, you’ll find them in our next installment.

5. Cigarette Phone

Yes, this is a real phone. In addition being a functional handset, it holds a half pack of cigarettes.

And if you’re willing to spring $175, you can get the “luxurious VIP kit,” which includes a lighter and pack of Chonghwa smokes, as well as the phone, in a commemorative box

4. Steering Wheel Laptop

If you need another distraction while driving, then check out this strange “Steering Wheel Laptop”. It allows you to “mount your laptop securely on your steering wheel so you can comfortably use your laptop while sitting in the driver’s seat of your vehicle.” [Source 12]

3. LED Rims

Spinner rims are so yesterday. Rims with built-in color LEDs become reality with “PimpStar”. These fully programmable wheels can display any image, logo, or text using the included software. Prices range from $12,500 (22″ w/tires) – $19,500 (26″ w/tires).

“The included software allows you to create your own images and send them to each wheel individually or all wheels at the same time as you drive! You can even pre-load up to six images into each wheel and program them to change automatically at the time intervals you select.”

2. USB-Powered BBQ

A group of Japanese modders decided to make their own custom USB-powered BBQ using lots of USB cable, six PCI USB Adapter cards, and countless hours of hacking. Plus, the computer is fully functional. Short video demonstration after the jump. Lots of pictures here.[Source]

1. Gun Control Security Camera

No other surveillance system quite matches the security of Scott Kildall’s Gun Control, which integrates a “police-issue” revolver and video camera into the killer package seen above. Like something out of a 007 movie, when a person comes into view, the camera and gun both follow. [Source]
