While I don’t think that these would go well with a business suit, these cases from Case-Mate are quite unique. These iPhone 4 cases will set your phone apart from all of the rest, and that can be good or bad.
Man has been flying for a very long time and early in the development of aircraft, we tired designs that mimicked birds with flapping wings and things never worked out well. The cool part about birds and insects that we still can’t fully recreate in man-made aircraft is the amount of lift and propulsion they can generate with small surface area wings.
While it certainly wouldn’t be the first game I’ve heard of where pooping is a central element (yeah, I can’t believe it either), but Poopocalypse definitely has the best name of the genre.
From what I can tell, Wolpertinger Games‘ Xbox Live Indie game is all about pooping pidgeons.
There’s one thing you can always rely on Japanese game companies for, and that’s weird games. Lots and lots of weird games.
Oshaberi Oumu for the Nintendo DS continues that tradition by putting the fate of a digital bird in your hands.
Personally, I’ve got no problem with the traditional “ding-dong” when solicitors come to my front door (it’s the solicitors themselves that I have an issue with). But you nature-lovers out there might like something a little more organic when the doorbell rings.
Got a bunch of old electronic parts lying around? While they might end up in the trash heap for many of us, artist Ann P. Smith sees new life in old junk.
Smith takes broken down electronics and machine parts to create her amazing menagerie of animal and insect sculptures.
Who says you can’t take your electronic gadgets in the bathtub with you? The latest in rubber duckie technology lets you steer your fine feathered friend around the tub from afar.
Using a wireless RF transmitter, you can make the yellow aquatic bird tool around as you splish-splash in your bath.
Can’t get enough of the sound of your own voice? This desktop bird plugs into your PC and parrots back what it hears.
The electronic parrot offers up an array of random phrases, plucked from the words it overhears, all the while gesticulating its mechanical wings.
If cute is your thing, you’re in luck. These baby robot chickens from Japan are so sugary sweet, you might go into a diabetic coma.
SegaToys’ Dream Chicks are lifelike baby birds that respond to real world stimuli.
Your fancy new iPod might have a touchscreen and Wi-fi, but I’m pretty sure it can’t do this. Not only does the iBird-1000 MP3 Player look like a bowtied penguin wearing headphones (I couldn’t make this stuff up), it can move its mouth and “sing” along with your music.
While the flightless, aquatic avian may have come to symbolize the Linux operating system, Windows and Mac users don’t have to feel left out thanks to these fun penguin USB flash memory drives.
Just like real penguins, they wear tiny striped scarves, and their heads flip open to reveal a USB connector (at least that’s what I thought I heard during my marine biology class).
Do you tend to hunch over whenever you’re working at your computer? This oddity from Japan is designed to help correct this bad behavior by serving up an alert if you’re sitting (or standing?) improperly.
All I know is that you wear it around your neck, and when you start to slouch, it’ll correct you with an audible alarm.
