Griffin Technology has announced FailSafe, its automatic-restart device for G4 and G3 Power Macs.

FailSafe lives in the modem-slot, and turns the power-on light into to a pulsing function, which indicates when the system is running smoothly. When a machine crashes, it will restart it automatically.

Griffin also previewed iMic. Aimed at iBook users, it offers both line and microphone-level input. It supports 24-bit audio input, although the Mac can only handle 16-bit audio. The product will ship in the US in March.
