World Cup fever!
Another long period with any updates… It’s finally summer holidays now and I’m leaving on Thursday (i.e. in two days) so there’s going to be another dead period without updates. I’m going to Croatia and I won’t be back untill July 10th.
The gadget which I will be presenting today is one that my mother would approve of. Not only is it cool and fun, but it’s also somewhat educational. When searching for a unique World Cup gadget, I found loads of interesting things, but this was the only thing that wasn’t so English nor boring. Dudes and dudettes (I watched a re-run of Step by Step yesterday…), let me present to you a World Cup trophy replica which plays the 25 nations’ national anthems (with full orchestration!!):
Heh, that was an anti-climax. To play a national anthem, all you have to do is click on one of the flags on the ball. When I was reading the description page, I noticed that it had the Norwegian anthem, and Norway’s not even in the World Cup this year. So from this I can only assume that it’s either flawed or an old invention. Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool (and educational) though I’m probably going to get sick of listening to the anthems at (probably) bad sound quality. It’s not expensive at all though, so to quote the description page: “If you only buy one World Cup gadget this year, make it the Anthem Ball.”
What team are you guys cheering for this year? I’m with Argentina! 😀
