We don’t know why we are always attracted to flying gadgets. Maybe it stems from boredom at work and the search for the perfect replacement for the spitwad. The Flying Screaming Chicken is approximately 30 cm in length and is made with elastic wings. Insert your finger in his head, pull back, and he off he goes, squawking as he flies. (You would probably squawk too, if somebody flung you.) The Chicken is available at Gobaz, batteries included, for only £3.49 ($6.81.)

We talk with Mike Hullet of OmegaSatter, the company that makes the MonsterPod. The MonsterPod is a tripod without legs, great for situations where you don’t have a stable place for a tripod. It can be attached to just about any surface. It has a visco-elastic, putty-like polymet base, so you can mount it to things like trees, rocks, brick, or anything you can find. Then you connect your camera to it, and you can take your image in just about any situation. You can pick one up for $34.99 USD.
