The Tables Have Turned: You Can Be The One Licking Your Cat This Time

licki-brush-1

Cats are great. Even their little raspy tongues licking you is kind of fun. But haven’t you ever wished you could be the one liking them, rather than the other way around? No? Well… neither have we. But the folks behind Licki Brush seem to think there’s a market for this. Either that, or we’re looking at a very late April’s Fool. The Licki Brush is meant to be inserted in your mouth, and used to brush/lick your cat without getting his fur in your mouth. There’s a website, and they mention an upcoming Kickstarter, though that’s all the info we have. How much? Is it real? Is anyone going to buy this? It’s all up in the air now, but we thought it cute nevertheless.

Are Bionic Birds The New Drones?

ivvp_bionic_bird

You’re looking at a remote controlled flying device that kind of looks like a bird, and flies like one too. You control it with your smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0, which gives you a range of about 100 yards. It’s completely not at all like a drone, so don’t expect stable flight, let alone recording any sort of video. It does, however, look like a lot of fun. More importantly is that despite having a small 8 minute flight time, a portable egg-shaped charging pack allows you to top it back up in only 12 minutes, and you can do that up to 10 times over before the charging pack itself needs juice. This is great because you can go off-grid with the Bionic Bird and get over one hour of flight time out of it.

You should know that when in flight it really does act like a bird and as such it may attract some natural bird predators. Considering it’s a $149 toy, you’re going to want to keep an eye out for that, lest you see you purchase disappear in the claws of a confused hawk, or whatever.
