Create Your Own Pixel Art With The U-mate Dot Creator

If you have a flare for geek art you should try your hand at creating your own pixel art and putting it in motion with the Dot Creator from U-mate, Japan. The tiny gadget allows anyone to draw their favorite characters and animate them in "Animation Mode" without years of design school or hours at the computer. Apparently, it's easy to control and adjust the speed with the buttons. Users can also save their artwork in a folder.

Designed with a light weight body, so it is easy to carry. Adopts a 16x16 LCD screen. Available only in Japan. $35 from Audio Cubes.
