Forget The iPod, Bring On More Nylon Mesh Teddy Bears

sharper_image_ipulse_bear.jpg

As far as the iPod player and light show goes, I think this iPulse Bear from Sharper Image is a bit overkill. Obviously not as ridiculous as the toilet paper dispenser/iPod speaker combmo, but it's in the same quartile.

What I'm most interested in is the mesh. I never knew how old-fashioned and unnecessary fuzzy plush fake fur can seem. Until I saw this bear.

Teddy Bear haptic technology hasn't really advanced much in over a hundred years. But this, this is like a plush toy from the future, a silver holographic mylar bear, only softer and cuddlier.

I guess you could cut up a pair of training pants and make your own, but I'd be more likely to let the kid play with it if it were made new.

Any leads out there?
