Matt’s Magical Mystery Gadgets, Revealed

March 15th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Dad + Gadget = Fail  |  1 Comment

A couple of people over at that other blog have asked, so here are answers:

1. The portable cloth high chair I used in this video came from Moe Bimbi in Milan. (They don’t have much of a Website, but their clothes are really cute.) I remember it costing about €30 or €35, and supposedly it was adapted from something similar sold in Australia. Anyone know what that one is called?

2. If you’re stupid enough (i.e., as stupid as me) to want to shoot video in an airplane bathroom, you could do worse than to get the Contour, a helmet-mountable HD videocamera. It comes in 720p and 1080p flavors, costs too much, and records to micro-SD cards. You don’t actually need a helmet, though, just a headband—mine was attached to a Petzl headlamp, so I could keep shooting even if the lights went out. Oh, the camera also has awesome laser-pointer sights, so you can blind your child if you want.
