Spend A Little More (Under $100)

The Eagle Eye Converter from Penguin United brings mouse and keyboard accessibility to the PS3 (Xbox 360 version coming soon). A gamer can connect both via USB to get the customized, precision control that many games require. The HELO TC Indoor Helicopter is a twin-rotor mini-chopper controlled through an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The free app lets the user guide it with every tilt of the device or record flight patterns to be replayed later.

Speakal‘s iKurv docking station is meant for an iPhone or iPod, but it handles game consoles and anything else that needs amplifying. The extra 20 watts of portable stereo power — digitally amplified and accented by LED lights in a starship-like design — makes everything sound better.

Eagle Eye Converter – Penguin United ($59.99)
