Sure, we marvel at the beauty of expensive home theaters, the magic of lighting control, the wonder of wireless networking, and pretty much everything and anything associated with Blu-ray. However, it’s products like the NES coffee table that make us really love our jobs. 

Of course, the DIY options are endless. Fortunately, so is the mass-produced mayhem. 

Weird sometimes means wonderful; sometimes it means crap. So far, 2008 has seen many from column A and even more from column B. While we could argue that every one of these products has a certain amount of usefulness, we would prefer to have you do that. 

Here’s a slideshow salute to six of our favorite “other” products so far for 2008. We’ve got a bear, a pig, a helicopter, a lava lamp, a “skin” phone, and a not-so-old-fashioned flashlight. Are we missing one of your funky favorites? Drop us a comment below.
