I didn’t have the heart to link this from the Blog Herald as its just too bizarre

Engadget: “After the success of PostPets it was clear that Japan had a taste for having information delivered to the desktop by fluffy animals, and now the inevitable has happened: A cute RSS reader is upon us. Ageet?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨?¢‚Äû¬¢s Gene TrialTypeA software aims to pull in non-geek users by offering an interface that allows you to drag-and-drop feed links into it, upon which the mouselike creature called Gene (pictured right) will obligingly eat them and read you the headlines via speech bubbles or aloud. “

Be sure to check out the pic on the link. Bizarre…..
