If you own a dog like me. You can now set up a twitter account for them. So when your pooch has finished being sociable in the park (sniffing another dogs arse) they can be sociable at home. The unique iphone app records your dog’s bark and turn’s it into a tweet.

Kent Rogowski has created a series of portraits of ordinary teddy bears, but unusually each Bear has been turned inside out and restuffed.
Kent reckons “Each animal’s appearance is determined by the necessities of the manufacturing process. Simple patterns and devices never meant to be seen are now prominent physical characteristics, giving each one a distinctly quirky personality: their fasteners become eyes, their seams become scars, and their stuffing creeps out in the most unexpected places. Together these images form a topology of strange yet oddly familiar creatures. They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own.”
