Fish Tank Friday: Ocean Theater

ocean-theater-general-2

By Evan Ackerman

There’s a general rule that the cooler a fish tank is, the more of a pain in the butt it is to clean the tank, feed the fish, and take care of the occasional belly up moment of unfortunateness. The exception to this rule is brought to you by fish tanks that don’t have any real fish in them, and the best of these don’t even have any water and can be stuffed in a closet when you’re not in a fishy mood. The Ocean Theater is all this and more, offering the excitement of a seascape with the convenience of an off switch.

So it’s basically a light, a clock, and an iPod dock (it’s got speakers and an audio jack) that can project fish and sharks and dolphins and stuff onto its own touch sensitive dome, or a wall. Yes, it’s extremely Japanese, but you can actually buy this one for about $250 (!) from Japan Trend Shop.

    Leave it to those kooky Jap – pan – knees! I have been toying with the idea of opening a Japanese gadget site.

    I'm going to pretend that mcman's post isn't racist, even thought there are hints of it.

    *grumbles a bit*

    I don't know if it's an Asian thing or not, but I had one that was basically a metal cage with cut outs that would spin around a light and make the shapes appear on the wall. I loved my night light. I don't see me sitting there like the woman in the video and just in the middle of the day watch it, but it was nice to go to sleep too.

    The problem with the japanese gadgets is that their manual is in japanese usually.

    I had that kind of night light when i was younger but i shared a room with my brother. He was always complaining that it was ghosts when the images appeared on the wall. Being the favourite son, my parents got rid of the light for him. I got back by developing a bad case of bed wetting to get back at my parents lol

    This looks fairly interesting.. If anyone actually gets one let us know how well it works.
