You might think you can explain where Columbia-based Aracataca got these giant pens, pencils, crayons and markers that are somehow miraculously passing through solid objects. But you can't. Because it's magic. Pure, unadulterated, magic.
Boo, an animal so impossibly cute as to make physicists question our understanding of the cosmos, is now available for mass production. It's soft. It's lifelike. We went hands-on with the most disgustingly cute toy ever seen.

If you're already in the habit of slapping and poking your friends (IRL, not Facebook), you might as well get some music out of it. The Ningen Gakki Human Instrument Machine converts contact to compositions, and, of course, looks absurd.
Yes, totally, I would love to wear one of those crazy robo-suits, like the HULC exoskeleton, that basically turns you into a huge shit-wrecking mech.

Power Hand, a $US30 glove from Jakks Pacific that lets your hand dictate the movements of a customisable blue robo-hand with ease.
