This is what we need more of: electronics that look like animals. Why? Because they’re cute and non-threatening. The I-Jerry, for example, is “lovely, cute, smart, and brave,” according to his press release. He’s got 1 gig of onboard memory for MP3s and ear controls, but instead of a speaker, his butt causes whatever surface he is placed on to vibrate, transforming it into a speaker. I-mu also has a few other audio systems that work on the same principle, including a piggy, an i-bird, and something that looks vaguely NSFW. I-Jerry will be available for about $99 sometime this year.
