Last Christmas, the Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster was the blockbuster gift for kids. This year, I predict the box office hit for kids will be the video game Kinectimals, one of fifteen new Microsoft fully-interactive "sensoring" video games for its new Kinect Xbox 360. Kinectimals
are 20 wild virtual video pets, like tigers, lions and cheetahs, that kids can
play with and even train. Parents will get a kick out of this game too!

When Nike 78 was launched by advertising student, Paul Jenkins,
I bet he didn't think that an aquarium shoe would be one of the
entries. But challenge "creative talents, design studios, and related
organizations to come up with a concept that will challenge the
functionality of sneakers," and don't be surprised.
... And when my human parents are out having fun and drinking wonderful Italian wine, I don't have to hold it in. I'd have Cliffi Lino to hold my wee-wee if I peed, and it would make me smell nice too!
