Hello Kitty Wireless MouseNo sooner did we tell you about the Hello Kitty USB and hub, up pops Spectra’s plug-and-play HK mouse. Featuring a resolution of 800 cpi, 3 buttons, and a rubber scroll wheel, it even goes to a power saving standby when you want others to admire that you are are in touch with your feminine side. Utilizing 2 AA batteries, you can find this 27MHz wireless pinkish peripheral eventually at Best Buy for $24.99. Since the item is on back order, maybe they are waiting for final negotiations with Google, who will surely try to buy up all the kitties from Sanrio.

Pleo

We originally became smitten with Pleo back in November. We have just learned from inventor/owner/CEO Caleb Chung that because of customer feedback, they are further enhancing their charming creature. They are upgrading his speaker quality to boost audio levels and increase his sound library, putting another sensor under his chin (because everyone likes to chuckle him there,) modernizing his eyes, and adding more soft tissue so that he feels more realistic.

In honor of the occasion, which we refer to as Pleo’s rebirth, Ugobe is giving away 10 of them to fans who enter their essay contest going on now through March 3rd, “How Do You Envision Robotic Life Forms Influencing or Touching Your Life in the Next 5 Years?” Pleo and Caleb, we feel the love.

  Homersapien

We adore . Their innovative Robosapiens and Dragonbot keep us constantly amused and entertained. So it is no wonder that we fell in love with their London Toy Fair entrants, Spideysapien and the rather buff-looking Homersapien. Both were undoubtedly designed to come out with this summer’s release of the new “Spiderman” and “Simpsons” movies. We expect Homey to utter the inevitable “Do-oh,” but we will be curious to see if he can hand us a Duff Beer.

Ultra Magnus Transformer

Cosmic Rust is offering free downloads of prototype paper-created Transformers, so you can relive the whole 80’s experience if you used to be as addicted to the action figures as we were. They come on PDF with detailed instructions, just in case you can’t remember what they were actually supposed to represent. We would give you more details, but we are too busy trying to recreate Ultra Magnus before Dreamworks/Spielberg’s “Transformer” Movie comes out this July and Cosmic Rust decides to charge for the privilege.

Chat Diva BarbieHaving to compete with Bratz is just too much for every little girl’s old friend Barbie. So Mattel has dreamed up an anorexic-looking Chat Diva Barbie. The doll can move to and lip sync to your music and is compatible with your PC, iPod, or any audio MP3 player with a headphone outlet. She and buddy Teresa also chat on included cell phones, and each doll comes with 3 pre-programmed song clips. She may not look like Celine Dion, but you can make her sound like her and be the star of your next office party. Barbie and her friend Teresa are available at retail stores and online for $29.96.

Mini race

Not only were the MINI Coopers fun to sit in, we found about 6 more excuses to stick around that area. This remote car racing game was consistently full of business men in CIA-looking suits.

crash and burn

Another tabletop game was more fun to crash and burn than to stay on the road. Finally, Mike had some difficulty finding which way to go in Volkswagen’s “Need For Speed.”

need for speed

The point here is that if you get a chance to visit the NAIAS, head for the BMW/MINI Cooper/Volkswagen corner.

Ignition has been awarded a CES Best of Innovations with its erector set-like Vex Robotics Kit. Developed in cooperation with First (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, the starter kit comes with everything you need to design and build a radio-controlled robot that can lift, throw or just move around in its botty way.
