Your hot asian gadget is actually just a character from the Manga Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro
Medama Oyaji (目玉のおやじ, or 目玉親父, Eyeball Father, Medama Oyaji?) is Kitarō's father. Once a fully-formed adult, he perished of a disease, only to be reborn out of his decayed body as an anthropomorphic version of his own eyeball.
Just thought you should know that its not quite as strange as someone ripping off a baby dolls head and throwing on a webcam that looks like an eye.

Hot Asian gadget:
(via shiny shiny)
Being a former Olympic games volunteer ('96 games in Atlanta) and big
supporter of the movement, here's a little explainer about the Olympic
The Olympic torch is first lit during a ceremony performed by women
representing priestesses. The torch is lit by reflected rays of the Sun in Olympia in Greece. "Back-up" flames are carried in specially designed
containers and go "on tour" with the primary Olympic flame.
I'm not certain about the torch construction, but it does have it's own fuel to keep the flame going. As far as tradition goes, the flame is the star, the torch is the "stage". When the cauldron is lit at the host city during the opening ceremonies (what a great image that is ...I can hear the music...oh, the explainer...), the cauldron uses a LOT of fuel to keep it going - kerosene I think...
I wonder if they'll try to use a biofuel instead...hmmm....
