Perhaps one of those cute catlike poses Japanese idols like so much. Taking pictures with the cat-shaped camera is a little tricky without any viewfinder, but you should get the hang of it with time. And if you look deep into Necono's eyes, that's where you'll find the camera lens and sensor.
You can connect the camera to your computer via USB cable, and there's also an AC adaptor for charging the battery. Weighing in at a mere 40 grams Necono is pretty light and might be best carried on a key chain or around your neck, which you can easily do by attaching a simple strap to its tail. Necono is available for purchase on the Superheadz website, although the order page is in Japanese. It's currently retailing for ¥15,750.
The pack includes a pair of directional controllers (D-pads) and three different stickers for button-groups: single, a pair, and a group of three. If you play any iPhone game that requires the use of a static controller, just stick these babies on your screen and enjoy.
For gaming purists who enjoy a more tangible experience, these buttons should make gaming on an iPhone more comfortable. In addition to the video and audio elements of a game, why not enhance the the feel of your game as well? Gamers in Japan can pick up Donya's gaming stickers for ¥999 via the company's website.
While we're on the topic of gaming, we encourage you to drop over to www.gamersheartjapan.com where you can find a tribute video from game developers and reviewers all over the world expressing their love for Japanese gaming. The website aims to raise relief money for the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake, so if you haven't donated yet this is a great opportunity to give. (The Japan Times)
