"The penguins at the St. Louis Zoo are eager to make new friends - perhaps too eager. A few of the cute and curious oceanic birds have launched themselves over the plexiglass wall that separates their man-made habitat from the public walkway. Several have even struck unsuspecting Zoo patrons since the new Penguin & Puffin Coast opened in May. "We designed the exhibit to be fairly interactive," said Mike Macek, the Zoo's curator of birds."

It's supposed to cost roughly $400, which is pretty high for a video game console...however, it would be cheap for a high-end computer, which I'm hoping system hackers can make this into. It'd be nice if it could emulate some of the other consoles too, with some sort of hacked/modded optical drive, since it doesn't have one. Should be an interesting thing to read about once it's released.
