Mardi Gras 2006 is on our doorstep, so here at CNET.com.au we've been getting into the spirit of things by celebrating gadgets of all shapes, sizes and colours. We've handpicked a rainbow of tech toys that hopefully will turn a few heads your way during the festival
Happy Mardi Gras!
A red notebook will rev you up for organising all your Mardi Gras festivities. It'll also match your eyes when the partying stops.
An orange camera is okay, but beware the dreaded Oompa-Loompa syndrome from applying too much fake tan on the night.
Potential partners can be met over the Internet and at Mardi Gras, and protection is something to remember for both situations.
Relive the evening with all your favourite Mardi Gras tracks on this MP3 player. It doubles as a photo viewer so you can show your friends how fabulous your outfit was on the night.
If you're after a Dame Edna blue rinse theme, give it a modern twist with this blue MP3 player.
Available in a rainbow of colours, Canon's i zoom is a cute little shooter that you'll be able to slip into your back pocket at the festival - provided you're not donning your chaps.
Let your pink pride shine and flaunt this hot pink phone to keep you in touch with friends throughout the Mardi Gras celebrations.
