For those of you who were fans of the Tamagotchi, you may find a new obsession with Tengu ($25). Whereas you had to feed, cuddle, clean and play with your Tamagotchi (nothing is worse than a dead virtual pet), the Tengu exists solely to entertain you. (Now that's what I'm talking about!)
The Tengu is a usb-operated gadget that lights up and lip syncs to the music that you play on your computer. For a guy whose expressions are limited by pixel formations, Tengu possesses an impression range of emotion! See him in action.
So next time you're working on that term paper and feeling a little lonely, turn on Tengu -- your new, not-needy best friend.
