A yellow spot on the horizon slowly approaches the coast. People have gathered and watch in amazement as a giant yellow Rubber Duck approaches. The spectators are greeted by the duck, which slowly nods its head. The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relief mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!

Duck Fadar

September 29, 2006

 

Duck Fadar is, an LED-packed rubber duck resembling the Dark Lord of the Sith. Simply pop him in the bath and watch as he floats around and automatically phases through various mesmerising colours.

Duck Fadar’s internal LEDs are water-activated. Taking him out of the bath causes the circuit to break and his lights to go off. Impressive, most impressive!

What is the designer thinking???
