Fellow humans, mark this month of November, 2010. For it is on this month that our great science peoples have solved one of our centuries old mysteries, a question that have kept many a stoned person up at night.
iPhone users the world over have a hard time watching video and making FaceTime calls thanks to having to lay the iPhone flat on the table or desk. This problem has created a number of solutions on the market, none of which are as cute and gross at the same time as the Mobile Tail.
I still remember that day in 7th grade when we walked into biology class and pinned to a bunch of trays were dead frogs. The teacher gave us all a scalpel and we set about cutting the stinky preserved frogs up to see what is inside.
If you haven’t got enough tweets to read, you can make sure that you pollute the Twitter-verse even further, thanks to this USB device, which allows your dog to tweet as well.
The Canine Twitterer allows your pet to automatically send tweets, which can then be posted to any social networking site.
I guess that China was feeling a little behind the curve from Japan and their wacky inventions, so they decided to come up with their own. What you’re looking at here is a vending machine that dispenses not candy bars or cans of soda, but live crabs.
Straight out of Steven Spielberg’s AI, Fujitsu has just unveiled its newest robot: a social robot teddy bear. What can it do? Probably a whole lot and guess what, it speaks Japanese!
This robot is supposed to respond to human interactions thanks to a set of 300 pre-programmed physical and audio reactions.
This crazy looking 200-pound cake looks like an octopus. While I rarely eat any cakes, this gigantic one made me smile, and mutter a prayer to the almighty Cthulhu!
Karen Portaleo from Highland Bakery is behind this mammoth cephalopod.
I wasn’t able to find out too much information about this robotic fish, but it really is a pretty cool bit of engineering.
From what I can tell, Sedensha Co. made this electric fish (link translated from Japanese), which can wriggle its way through the water just like the real deal.
I was all ready to make fun of these Mini Bear Speakers from Juicy Couture when my wife and 5-year-old daughter walked in. The wife got all excited because they are from a designer and my daughter was all giddy because they were pink, they were stuffed bears, and they will connect to “daddy’s big iPhone” otherwise known as the iPad she runs off with at every chance.
While I’ve never thought of AT-ATs or Imperial Walkers from Star Wars as particularly cute, the following video definitely presents them as a nice robotic pet to have around. I can already see the animated version coming to a HDTV near you!
At first when I saw this image, I wondered what it was. It looks like some kind of a glowing animal head of some sort, a cross between a dragon and something else. I was surprised to learn that this is Russell, the Electric Giraffe.
I’ll start out by saying that I had no idea what a Dodobongo was before I wrote this article. But from what I can tell, he’s some sort of goofy-looking animated dog from Japan. Whether or not you know what they heck he is, this USB version of the disproportionate mutt looks like it could be fun sitting on your desk.
For those of us who grew up during the video game era, I think we all know that hedgehogs are blue, and thrive on a steady diet of shiny golden rings. Now you can show off your astute knowledge of the animal kingdom with one of these t-shirts.
Ah, Biology 101. We may be from different nations and cultures, but I’m sure those of us who have gone through that class share very similar experiences: The fear. The excitement. The jumping, twitching animals. The smell.
