USB Owl Pet
Here’s a cute and interesting USB device that doesn’t really serve any practical function but to accompany you while you’re at the computer.
The USB Owl pet comes with three moods: active, mellow and sleeping, though you don’t have any control over its moods. Probably a good thing to have to distract you from bouts of boredom and loneliness.
You can either place it on your desk or attach to the PC or laptop monitor with a clip included in the package.
This interesting PC companion goes for US$19.99 at ThinkGeek.
