The Little Girl Giant

The sultan’s Elephant by Royal de Luxe. Last spring in London, this puppet spent the day, getting dressed, playing with kids and taking a nap. Her movements are so eerily real that you ignore the pulleys and mechanisms which control her motion.

Pet Drinking Fountain

October 2, 2006


I adopted 2 land hermit crabs on childrens’ day. “With power comes great responsibilities” so said Spiderman’s uncle. Anyway, I came across this just now.

This Pet drinking fountain resembles our own water dispensers in the office, but it consists of a traditional drinking dish as well as an air pump that constantly refreshes the water automatically, halting the growth of potentially harmful bacteria in the dish, which in turn ends up as fresh drinking water for your beloved woof woof or meow meow. The Pet Drinking Fountain is capable of holding up to 1.5 gallons of fresh water at any one time, hence maintenance is kept to a minimum on your part.

And its entertains you and your pet too.

Have you ever want to take the umbrella from someone who poked you because they don’t bother to be careful and whack him/her on the head with it? If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know the dangers – a crowded city footpath on a wet day during rush hour. Dodging hundreds of probing, rapier-like and potentially eyeball-piercing umbrella tips is not fun.

The Bumpbrella is an inflatable umbrella that utilizes a bicycle pump mechanism in the handle. By pumping, it inflates into an umbrella that one can see through, thereby protecting you against the elements and from getting poked by another umbrella.

10 megapixels cameras rush

October 2, 2006

The holidays are near. The family gatherings are imminent. You have to take some pictures for remembrance, its the tradition. Show them that latest camera to get some attention. But before you go rushing to get one, check out the latest 10 megapixels compacts and ultra slims that are or to be launched. They look good. I’m still deciding which one to get. 

Choices! after the jump.
