Cube World interactive stick people

Okay, so this may sound a little freaky, but supposedly these pixellated Cube World stick people live in a world of their own. Even better than the old Tomagotchis, you donít need to feed or change their diapers. They just hang on their own, do their own thing and have their own little community.

It gets even freakier when you start collecting them. Once you stick or stack the cubes together, they start to interact with one another, wave to each other, play and pester each other, even visit each otherís cubes and play tricks on one another! Now thatís freaky!

Itís one of those things that I will just have to see to believe. There are two cubes in a pack, with four different cubes to collect. You can connect up to 16 cubes together and sit back and see what sort of antics they perform. Each one has its own name; Scoop likes to play with his dog, and Slim messes around with a stick. Thereís also Dodger, who enjoys kicking a ball around, and Whip, who can perform some amazing rope tricks for you.

Available at The Gadget Store for £19.95 for two.

Or for $29.99 in the US, available at Think Geek
