Penguin waddles onto the dance floor

The latest 'i-Dog' offshoot shows some personality

Crave has been rather proud of being the only gadget blog on the planet that hasn't posted an item on the "i-Dog" or its offshoots. But out of respect for esteemed colleague Caroline McCarthy and her obsession with arctic waterfowl (however unhealthy that may be), we herewith make an exception.

Hasbro's "i-Cy" penguin, according to Chip Chick, not only waddles and flaps its wings to the beat of your music but also "communicates his moods to you through movement, musical riffs and blinking light patterns." It sounds as if Disco Duck may have grounds for a lawsuit.
