USB Puppy “Wonderful” Speakers

Japan Trust Technology brings us a pair of cute puppy USB speakers called the “Wonderful Speakers”. As you can see, the speakers are not a matched pair–the left is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy and the right one is a Dalmatian puppy.

The speaker is located on the pup’s belly. Also included, but not shown, is a “guitar-shaped” (bone?) controller for the volume.

The force is strong with anyone ballsy enough to rock a lightsaber umbrella on city streets!

Nick Says: May 15, 2009 at 7:37 am

Lightsaber Umbrella, cant go wrong!

Ryan Says: May 15, 2009 at 7:55 am

I wouldn’t mind having my phone automatically call in sick for me if I don’t get out of bed.

Justin Says: May 15, 2009 at 7:59 am

The Starry Night Bed is amazing! A bed loaded with gadgets…now only if I had $20-50K! (the Kindle DX was a close second, but couldn’t top the bed for me!)

Amy Says: May 15, 2009 at 8:08 am

I have to say I like the Fugoo – the idea that my stuff could work together is great.

tru Says: May 15, 2009 at 8:11 am

Once again, a close call. I definitely love the umbrella and want one for myself, but if I had that bed, I’d never need an umbrella because I’d never leave the house.

bbx Says: May 15, 2009 at 8:34 am

Cos the lightsaber umbrella just looks so cool!!! And u stay dry too!

Jenna Says: May 15, 2009 at 9:15 am

That Starry Night Bed gets my vote.

Jabberwock Says: May 15, 2009 at 12:12 pm

Fugoo – that’s what home automation should be about…

anthony Says: May 15, 2009 at 1:02 pm

My wife would love a bed that helps my Snoring, Starlight bed for sure…..

craig Says: May 15, 2009 at 1:16 pm

The handheld system is awesom.

Thyago Says: May 15, 2009 at 2:19 pm

Kindle DX. All I want is be able to read any pdf in a big screen.

Drew Says: May 15, 2009 at 2:30 pm

I’ve been thinking about a Kindle. Now, with a bigger screen, it’s even more appealing.

cara Says: May 15, 2009 at 4:36 pm

lightsaber umbrella — if only it can be used to thwart other umbrella nemeses — the ones who walk around with it open even under protective cover.

will Says: May 15, 2009 at 6:15 pm

The Kindle, although it will be even cooler when it isn’t so expensive.

Sharon Says: May 15, 2009 at 6:56 pm

DEFINITELY the Starry Night bed. With data collection, it’s going to know when you need the temp up or down, and anti snore gets my vote too. Adjustable height? Awesome. I’d be willing to test one of these out in a Queen size. Better make it full featured so I can give a complete review….

J.Carey Says: May 15, 2009 at 10:45 pm

Pyramid PC case has my vote. Would be great if done for small computers that could sit on your desktop beside your monitor. Like the Mac Mini, but pyramid-shaped. I’d buy that.

Helard Says: May 16, 2009 at 3:30 am

Definitively the Amazon Kindle DX, I love it, I need it!!

Maxxx Says: May 16, 2009 at 4:14 am

The lightsaber umbrella should be FIRST
I SECOND that!
It’s got a THIRD of the votes!
May the FOURTH be with you :)

Fran Says: May 16, 2009 at 8:05 pm

The Kindle DX is amazing. Will the next generation also play books on tape?

Mike Says: May 16, 2009 at 11:34 pm

I have the second gen Kindle. I think I prefer that one to the latest. It’s small enough to be portable. Any bigger and I probably wouldn’t bring it with me wherever I go.

Jessica Says: May 17, 2009 at 7:47 am

The Kindle DX — I’m going to order it now.

Tim Says: May 17, 2009 at 8:39 am

Kindle DX…..

AMiR Says: May 17, 2009 at 11:42 am

Amazon DX is great !

Eric Says: May 17, 2009 at 12:04 pm

Voted for the umbrella.

Hamzah Says: May 17, 2009 at 1:54 pm

USB Puppy, it’s so awesome!

Selene M. Says: May 17, 2009 at 1:57 pm

The new Kindle is a big improvement over the previous model. It’s my choice for Coolest Gadget of the Week

Ben Says: May 17, 2009 at 6:39 pm

The netbook cooler is undeniably the “coolest” gadget. (But comon, gaming on a netbook?)

Krysta Says: May 18, 2009 at 6:39 am

I loved these little rc cars!

Stacey Says: May 18, 2009 at 7:19 am

I think that is great having everything talking and keeping up with each other. That would be a nice way to start your day, perfect order. Maybe the rest of the day will go as well.

Jason Says: May 18, 2009 at 2:31 pm

It looks ridiculous, but any use for my old NES cartridges rocks.

John Says: May 18, 2009 at 4:04 pm

The cars would be great for my son.

Jerry D. Says: May 18, 2009 at 7:53 pm

thats a cool PC case

Bob Walters Says: May 19, 2009 at 7:55 am

The Starry Night Bed is the utmost in sleep tech and sounds great.

Marge Says: May 19, 2009 at 8:07 am

Sorry but a Kindle would help make my life so much ‘lighter’ . . . no big books to carry around!

andres Says: May 20, 2009 at 8:48 am

ok, fugoo talking gadgets? coolest thing ever! the kindle is right behind it.

Jim H Says: May 20, 2009 at 8:04 pm

The Kindle is the only one I would consider buying.

Elizabeth Tipping Says: May 21, 2009 at 4:10 am

The umbrella is cool and also lets you be seen on a dark,rainy day.
