Cute Penguin robot wants to be your Facebook companionPierre Bureau, the founder and CEO of Arimaz in Switzerland, recently showed off a demo of a prototype of a cute penguin robot that his company is planning to begin selling in September for $99. It’s called MyDeskFriend. The idea is that this Penguin is a small companion for your desk.

It comes with a docking station which is hooked up to your PC. You can interact with the robot in a bunch of ways. It can follow your finger and will even detect the edges of the your desk so that it doesn’t fall off, thanks to 5 infrared sensors. It also has an accelerometer, so it knows when it’s being touched or shaken. The eyes will even change color depending on it’s mood. If you shake it too much, it’s eyes will turn red because you’ve made it mad. You can even connect it with your Facebook profile for the ultimate in dorky behavior.

WWF Penguin USB Flash DriveIf only the legs moved. Then this USB Penguin flash drive would be truly hilarious. Sadly, they do not. So, while the Penguin has landed head first in your USB port, presumably with cartoon sound effects, it’s legs aren’t moving. Failed comedy opportunity.

The WWF Penguin USB flash drive will come in varying capacities of up to 16GB. Each purchase will see 5% of the proceeds being donated to the WWF. The 8GB configuration is going for $26 currently.

The wireless Penguin mouse appears to be geared toward those with a love for cartoon Penguins flattened by steamrollers. Now you can live that moment forever and navigate webpages with this somewhat flat and flightless bird. He’s even wearing a scarf.

Whether you love Chilly Willy or Penguins from any of the numerous recent cgi movies, I think you might be pleasantly disturbed to use this day in and day out. The USB Wireless Penguin Mouse comes in black or blue and only costs $20.
