I tell you, just when I thought I'd seen everything, along comes an inflatable mouse (and you don't expect to hear yourself saying that every day!)
Thank goodness it's Friday afternoon (as I pen these words), because I can't take much more of this. Just when I thought I'd believed enough incredible things for one day, my friend Wilfried in the Netherlands sent me this link to an inflatable (blow-up) mouse!
Actually, there's a lot of really cool things on this Yanko Design website – not least the descriptions that accompany the products. Consider this USB Digital Camera, for example. The full title of this product's entry is "USB Digital Calera Fakes Analog".
"Fakes Analog"? What does this mean? Well, peruse the following description?
Imagine a tiny USB camera with no viewfinder, no LCD screen, and no buttons except one. Stripped down to its bare functions, this mini USB Digital Camera combines the feeling of not knowing how your shots turned out (just like using analog film) with the ease of USB transfer. No cables are necessary. Just plug it straight into your computer and always be surprised!
I tell you, it's almost as if I wrote this myself...
