No idea why, but they made a USB-powered shaking hip (video)


We featured Bandai’s weird beer can simulator yesterday, mentioning the company started behaving strangely a few weeks ago. Now Banpresto, a subsidiary company of the Japanese toy giant, adds another odd gadget to the mix: A mini shaking hip that’s powered by USB [JP]. Yes, Thanko is innocent this time.

The thing will be available in Japan in four different colors starting June. It just shakes. There is no memory or anything like that and yet they want $15 for it. International buyers who are desperate enough might be tempted to contact Japanese gadget specialist Rinkya to get one of these for themselves for next Valentine’s Day.
