Gadgets and Gizmos

Two gadgets I ran into lately that I want: Wacom Cintiq 12WX, a pressure-sensitive Wacom tablet with a screen for $999 that Engadget called, “probably the best peripheral I have ever tried.” The other is BUG (which just announced its pricing): A programmable/hackable gadget platform that looks like you can make do just about whatever you want (has optional camera, GPS and motion sensor modules).
