Geeky Toys – Tengu
Here’s a fun gadget to brighten up your desk, Tengu, the lip syncing desktop friend.
Bright LEDs in Tengu’s sleek rectangular face respond to any sound, so as well as gurning away to the music you play, this hip little square also moves its lips as you merrily type away. Tengu will even lip sync as you speak (although chatting to a USB peripheral, albeit an ¼ber-stylish one, is not something we’d recommend).
Unlike other USB peripherals Tengu can’t make the tea, backup files or even make the day go faster. In fact Tengu doesn’t really do that much at all. But seeing as you’ve got enough time to fritter away the day reading this nonsense, neither do you. It’s a win-win scenario any way you slice it.
With over 14 different facial expressions, Tengu is infinitely more emotive than your average office bod and is guaranteed to cheer you up every time you clap eyes on it. Of course there are other, more useful ways to employ your USB ports but none of them combine music, miming and dodgy face-pulling. And if that’s not reason enough to hit the Buy button we don’t know what is.

Tengu is available to buy online for $39.60 from Firebox.
