Over Christmas I ate a lot of turkey, drank a lot of wine, and fiddled endlessly with this – the Emtec S800 movie cube. I’ll break it to you now – it’s not a cube – but it is a great little home entertainment set-top-box that lets you stream video over a network and record television.

Not one for the technophobic amongst you, but if you like tinkering with your AV setup then it comes highly recommended. It costs £230 and the company claims it’s available now from Dixons, but I certainly can’t see it on the site, or anywhere else for that matter. If you know where you can buy it in the UK, drop us a line in the comments.

YouTube Video of the Week: Stellated Rhombic Dodecahedrons.


Okay. Pay attention. This is the transformation of two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons from a cube, according the bloke in the video. I don’t really know what that means, but that might be because I’m blinded by the power of geometry-based-awesomeness.

It’s also known as the Yoshimoto Cube, and you can buy it here. Bit late for a stocking filler, I’m afraid.
