I was so born in the wrong country. From 2dayBlog via SlipperyBrick, the Japan’s Stitch LCD 20″ display. The display is 1680×1050 pixels, allows for an HDMI connection and more. Stitch’s mouth opens so you can access the display’s controls and he’s full 360 so you can see the rest of him clinging on to the monitor in the back. See here for more details and photos.
SlipperyBrick also covers this incredibly cute but expensive USB Stitch humidifier which works in a very unique way.

I quasi-apologize for those who had trouble accessing the site for much of Saturday morning. The photo that shall not be named had been picked up by a popular Polish site called Kotek who uniquely opted to simply post the link rather than show the image as well. This immediately caused tremendous site overload (so much so that the account was even temporarily suspended). With my great host’s support, some changes were made to increase performance and to mitigate the service disruption from our visitors from Poland (who will still be able to see what they came for).
