If you are a roadside Romeo given to stalking girls or passing tasteless comments then beware. Girls are arming themselves in the most innovative ways with innocuous looking devices that can knock the senses out of a potential molester. Take, for example, the iStun case for the iPhone. This is the only case in the market that doubles as a personal bodyguard. It comes with a built-in stun gun capable of delivering up to 650,000 volts into the flesh of a would-be attacker. The case comes with a safety switch so the stun will not accidentally go off but will only be used to knock the living daylight out of an attacker.
PRICE: INR 6,900 ($115)

If you thought Google was just a multi-lingual search engine, perish the thought. Google now makes smart phones and tablets – under the Nexus label – and is soon to launch revolutionary glasses. Not many people know that Google is also making shoes, or rather collaborating with Nike to make shoes. The Google Nike Sneakers are a cool gift for geeks. The shoe incorporates Google colours and logo. They also feature Google promoter Larry Page’s face on each tongue. Whether these will keep you on your toes or freak you out depends entirely on you.
