Chewbacca Star Wars Journals: It’s Hard to Write with Your Arms Ripped off

Chewbacca Star Wars Journals: It’s Hard to Write with Your Arms Ripped off
Don’t worry, no Wookiees were harmed in the making of these journals. Well, maybe their pride, a little. Although if any company ever had the power enslave and harvest Wookiee fur, it would be Disney. I’m pretty sure they are fine.

Smart Fur Gives Robot Pets Realistic Sensations
We’ve all heard countless times how simply petting an animal can decrease stress and help improve a person’s state of mind. But what if you’re unable to take care of a real pet? There have been plenty of attempts to create robotic animals over the years, but none of them have really succeeded at providing the same feedback as a real animal.

PETA Not Happy with Mario’s Tanooki Skin, Nintendo Responds Intelligently
Not sure how I missed this, but apparently PETA has a problem with Nintendo’s Super Mario 3D Land launch. The organization has taken aim at Mario himself, making it look like he has to kill a raccoon to wear that Tanooki suit from the game, and somehow that Nintendo is making the statement that they are pro-fur.

Fur-Covered Cell Phones and USB Flash Drives

So This is What a Dinohorsie Looks Like
A new species of dinosaur has been discovered at Craftster, and it is adawwwwwrable. I’ll give it the scientific name Facelessthicipus woolysaurus, but you can call it Dinohorsie. The 2 ft. long Dinohorsie was made by the crazy imaginative craftster sparrowarms : “My daughter has always called Dinosaurs, Dinohorsies which got me thinking: what would a Dinohorsie look like?”

Furry Keyboard and Flash Drives Are Perfect for the Crazy Cat Lady Who has Everything
Leave it to the Japanese to come up with yet another just plain weird accessory for you to put on your desktop next to your computer. Unlike your boring, everyday keyboard, this keyboard is bordered by a plush layer of cat-like (hopefully faux) fur to make those hard edges soft and cuddly.

Robot Dog is Surprisingly Not Too Creepy

Robot Dog is Surprisingly Not Too Creepy
Having seen my share of weird Japanese robotic animals, I was actually pretty impressed by the fact that this one doesn’t look like it’s going to attempt to murder you in your sleep. SEGATOY’s new robotic dog is a heck of a lot less creepy than their hollow-stared robot cats, and actually seems to act quite a bit like a real pup (sans the poop).

I thought that the Pac-Man hoodie would be the most outlandish article of clothing I’d write about this week, but leave it to me to always go just one better. So without further ado, I proudly present the LED Pimp Coat… The “deluxe” color-changing coat is not only made of the finest polka-dotted faux fur money can buy, it’s loaded with over 400 colorful LEDs which let you change the outfit’s colors to suit your mood.
