Crispin Jones’ Tengu: LED Faced Virtual Companion
August 2nd, 2007
SolidAlliance, makers of wacky things like USB drives that look like sushi and other edibles, has just revealed their latest creation.
The Tengu is an interactive device that displays an animated face using an array of LEDs. Designed by UK artist Crispin Jones, the Tengu reacts to auditory stimuli like music or speech. Depending on the sounds it “hears,” it’s capable of displaying a bunch of different (albeit blocky) facial expressions.
You can pre-order one now on the Solid Alliance store ¥4,480 (about $38 USD.)
