Fentem's Fentix

Andrew Fentem has moved from making missiles to making children's toys. It seems like a reasonable leap to make - especially since his toy involves accelerometers - more at home in the iPhone or Wii - and is already drawing much interest from toymakers. Of course, this kind of communication is new to Mr Fentem. Previous work incarnations have seen him in a Faraday Cage - which prevents any type of transmission in or out. So what is his "toy"? According to the BBC, it's the Fentix Cube - which plays some games and puzzles - of course it's more complex than that but you'll need to wait until one lands in your Xmas stocking next year to learn all about it (or perhaps Google it)!
