I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    So, basically, it does everything except actually produce light?

    It’s adorable! Just make it purr when I pat it and it can replace all pet-ownership cravings. It also DOES have a light bulb (“halogen globe”), according to the description above, but perhaps that wasn’t fully working yet when they filmed the video.

    Wow. This is one of the coolest things I’ve heard about in ages. Plus it was just made by some college kids who were also busy writing papers at the same time … and it only gets 4 comments? Really? Holy crap something is wrong with the universe.

    Or maybe with me. My wife wasn’t that excited about it either.
