Tengu is a simple USB peripheral that illuminates and lip-syncs to your favorite tunes or any other sound in the local vicinity. If there’s no sound, he’ll fall asleep and wake up again when things get noisy. Pretty nice companion for those lonely nights in front of your laptop. I guess the next step would be to hack him up and connect him to your IM client so that he also lip-syncs the messages as they come in.

    I think it’s time for some thrifty Makers to make a Tengu clone…

    I count two LEDs for eyes, a 6×8 LED matrix, and a microcontroller. It can’t be that hard!

  2. Somebody is already working on it. Check out this Post :

  3. Is this actually a “peripheral”, or just a USB power-stealer?
