The i-Cy Penguin Musical Pet is actually a sort of roast vegetable dish served to celebrate the summer solstice in certain parts of Spain. But we digress. Plug this puppy Penguin into your Linux powered music box and watch with glee as it recites Eric Raymond’s books in a chirpy and yet curiously engaging baritone. Or something. $29.95.
Place i-Cy where he can hear, or use his built-in speaker, or plug him into the headphone jack of an iPod or other music player. Multicolored blinking LEDs animate his face as he dances to your music! He flaps his flippers and tilts his head in time with the beat. Pat his head for cheerful squawks; play tunes to keep his spirits high; but tweak his tail and watch out!
