Meet your new USB-powered pal, Tengu. Never work those long, dull nights by yourself again. Tengu makes faces that coincide with whichever noise he picks up on. Whether he is lip synching to your internet radio stream, or is linked to your own voice, he is sure to take some of the frustration and loneliness out of up-all-night work projects. And the best part is no software to install; just plug him in and he’s yours.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
