Here is Fosfor’s first list of the year and since it is Superbowl this weekend what can be better than a Top 10 list of Superbowl gear. We really enjoyed putting this one together and we sure hope you enjoy reading it. This is also the first post over at our new domain fosfor.com!

9. Football helmet mp3 player
I found lots and lots of computer mouses, mouse pads and similar items but honestly they were all too boring to make it on to the list. Here is one that actually made it. It is a mp3 player that is shaped like a football helmet. 1 GB of storage for $89 at Target.

6. NFL Trivia Pro
This is a neat little toy that lets you play the knowing game with your Superbowl buddies. The unit is packed with thousands of football questions like the one featured above ‘Who was named MVP in in the NFL in 1998‘ (the correct answer is Terrell Davis, Running Back in Denver).

5. Virtual Distance Football
The ultimate question for your Superbowl buddies: How far can you throw? Find out with this really neat football that automatically measures the distance it gets thrown or kicked. Pretty cool right? Another cool thing is that it’s only $20.

4. NFL Football fone phone
This item can only be found on eBay but ain’t it just too cool? I am pretty sure that you can find a modern version of this one but unfortunately I didn’t find one today. This one is $19 plus shipping. The one above is a rare, vintage model from when there were still only 30 teams in the NFL. Nice!

3. Football Universal Remote Control
This universal remote control is the perfect way to control your equipment during any football night and especially Superbowl. You just have to love it! It even comes with a uilt-in voice that says “Are you ready for some football?” when you press that special button. Price is $19.99.

2. Automatic Quarterback
If this automatic quarterback thingy from Hammacher won’t impress your Superbowl buddies I don’t think anything will. The automatic football passer will throw you a perfect spiral every time and the foam football will be sent away up to 30 yards. The asking price is $69.95 and you can adjust the machine to give you both lateral passes and long, high bombs. Neat!

1. Adult Football Fan Mask
It was hard to pick the winner for this Top 10, but this one made me laugh so many times that I just had to place it in the top position. It gets funnier for every time I look at it. You will look like a very weird super hero wearing this football mask. It is the cheapest item on this list too – only $9.99. Weird shit, hehe.

Here is a couple more gadgets that didn’t make it into the final list, but I still think they are worth mentioning:
Riddell Revolution IQ HITS
The Riddell Revolution IQ HITS is a professional product that monitors and records all impacts received during a game or practice. All data can be uploaded to your computer via the desktop antenna (an additional $300). Cool and expensive pro gear.

Electronic Football Game
I have never seen one of these Fisher Price games for real, but it sure looks like a whole lot of fun! It combines physical head to head gaming with digital electronics. Here is a quite from an Amazon customer review:
So is it fun? You bet. It’s not going to enthrall an adult or teenager for hours on end, but if you like electronic games and you want to get a quick workout, this is a good way to go. You can really work up a sweat in 16 minutes of running in place!

Tudor NFL Electronic Football
To end this list of Superbowl gadgets I want to add a retro gadget that is really cool. If you give this one to a kid today he or she will probably think that it is an amazingly boring game but when I was young I could spend days with a gadget like this one. Times change!
