Monster Vivienne Tam Butterfly headphones

Damn, Monster Cable is continuing to flood the headphone market, this time going outside of their partnership, and instead doing a collabo with fashion designer of HP netbook fame. The product will be known at the Butterfly in-ear headphones, and each earbud will have colorful butterfly artwork on it, and it’s all finished up with a light gold-brushed finish. They are being positioned as both a music accessory and a fashion piece, which we guess kind of explains the $199.95 price point. So, who’s picking these up when they ship in April?

WowWee FlyTech Butterfly

WowWee Butterfly

Speaking of WowWee, their FlyTech Butterfly will soon be available. The toy is lightweight and as garish as it can be. You charge it, then push launch and there it goes, running into walls, furniture, and people as depicted in this video. With a wing span of 11.8-inches, the winged insect can fly for about 20 seconds after a recharge time of 10. The company claims that its being constructed from durable, highly flexible materials makes it “safe and able to withstand multiple crash landings.” We’re not sure that your lamps and electronics would agree with that. Needing 3 AAA batteries (not included,) the Butterfly will be available in upcoming weeks.

Butteryfly Personal Heater

Butterfly HeaterOkay, so in a few weeks we are expecting to hear from a bunch of readers who decided to brave the cold in order to be one of the lucky few to nab a PS3 at launch. However, why suffer frostbitten fingers if you don’t have to? This is where the Butterfly Heater comes in. You fill this bad boy with a little lighter fluid, and it goes to work pumping out warm air through it’s butterfly pattern stitched front. Yeah, it’s a little more girly than we would have hoped for, but for an $18 device that will stay warm for a solid 25 hours, we think we can handle that. You can grab two for $30, and then you’ll be the envy of the line at your local Best Buy.
