Like to eat Asian delicacies, but don’t have a good grip on your chopsticks? Embarrassed when you go to the local Chinese or Japanese restaurant and have to ask for a fork? Well have I got a deal for you.
I used to watch a lot of the Jetsons as a kid mostly because there was nothing else on after school. I remember their dog Astro and his walks on the treadmill behind the house. Garmin has named its latest GPS dog tracking system after that cartoon pooch.
Do you like dogs? Well, I sure do, so when I saw this USB hub that looks like Man’s Best Friend, it put a smile on my face. While it’s not as cute and cuddly as, say, these guys, the USB HubDog is cuter than some other USB hubs.
I want to start this off by saying, BWAHAHAHAHA. As the story here goes, the police in Hampshire over in the UK were called by a concerned citizen with a startling report. A white tiger had apparently been spotted hiding in a field near a local golf course eyeing a quick bite of golfer for lunch.
We have seen some very strange vending machines around the world over the years. You have your cool and understandable machines like the bread maker and the pizza maker. Then we get really weird machines like the one in China that dispenses live crab.
People need oxygen in the aftermath of a fire to help flush the carbon dioxide from the smoke from their blood so they can breathe better. If you ever wondered what is done to help the pets caught in the same fire as their humans – apparently in the past, the answer was nothing.
Remember AIBO, Sony’s now discontinued robotic pet dog? Well Sony’s loss is Korea’s gain, now that they have a corner on the market for dancing robot dogs. GENIBO has been around in Korea for a few years now, but this is the first time I’ve seen the robodog in action, and it’s definitely got some impressive moves.
I always wanted to be an archaeologist when I was a kid. I had the Indiana Jones whip and hat left over from Halloween, so it was a natural progression for me. I later found out that you have to go to college for a really long time and opted out.
Luckily, I escaped the Furby craze when I was a kid, but it looks like the company behind these new interactive robot monkeys is trying to revive the trend. Tandars are robotic toys with sensors. There’s good news though; they won’t break the bank, like some other robot toys out there.
Speakal has been peddling some iPhone and iPod speaker docks for a while that are very strange and look like animals and various other things. The company had the iPig a few years back and is back with a new versions of the iPig called the Cool iPig.
