Hours in front of the computer got you feeling a bit lonely? Have no fear, Tengu is here! Tengu is a USB-powered character that lights up and lip syncs to music, or your voice, or whatever noise happens to be around at the time. Tengu has different facial expressions that you can match to different music. When there's no sound he'll simply fall asleep, as soon as he detects some noise he'll wake up again.
Tengu is a stand-alone device that does not require any additional software on the host computer. Created by designer Crispin Jones. Made in China.
