Always wanted to make those days in the office a bit more fun filled and enjoyable? Well Tengu has been created to put a smile on your face.
Simple to set up, all Tengu needs is your USB slot and your away, no additional set up is required.
All he needs is power, to lighten up your day.
But what does Tengu actually do I hear you cry?
Well as well as changing his facial expression depending on his mood, Tengu can also lip sync to any music you have in the office. Be it the radio or one of your favourite CD's (of course if your lucky enough to be able to have your own music in the office!)
You could even have a chat with the little fellow, as any form of voice or sound will create a response from this small thing. (just be sure not to be caught by your work mates having a chat with a USB device, as you may be sitting on your own a bit more in the future.)
So how does it work?
Bright LEDS in Tengu's face are what bring him to life, and with over 14 different facial expressions you will never get bored with your (soon to be) favourite desktop companion!
Due to a small microphone within his tough plasticy exterior Tengu can respond facially to anything that is said to him, and also has many other features.
Tengu, may sometimes be to tired to keep you amused all of the time, so in the case of a small case of sleeping, just blow on his face to wake him up. (and unlike your other half, you wont be given the cold shoulder for the rest of the day, which in my books is always an added bonus!)
But be aware, the main purpose of Tengu is to keep you amused at work, not to stop you working. (However tempting I'm sure that can sometimes be, your boss may not be so impressed.)
Unlike other USB gadgetry you can get now-a-days Tengu cannot make your life easier, he cannot be used as a mass storage device, desktop fan, nor does he fire projectiles from his LED nostrils. Alas, Tengu is simply designed to bring a smile to your face. And he certainly does that.
But what if you don't like his simple black looking body?
Well, that's simple, this was an issue the company who made Tengu have addressed.
They have brought out a new line of these little critters, and you now have 3 additional “All Star” Tengu's to choose from! So there really is no excuse to not get one of these amazing little desktop creatures.
"Why is it pointless?"
they only change facial expression on command
"Why is it cool?"
Because it brings a smile to your face everyday
