This is the back of the ipod guy (the first one). A little joke about the bling...

Other pics...cribbed from my post about the parade the other day.

In the "Technological Achievement" category, we have the finalist, "Pong Man" (yes, it was a working game of pong).

Another finalist, 'The Segway Borg'.

And the winner, the 'Bush Re-Enactment Experience'. [ behind the screen coverage] This one was pretty sweet as he had a number of spliced Bush speeches which were synched to a corresponding facial expression. He was using a small handheld controller to do a bit of the ole "Max Headroom". The loudspeaker would do the talking and the screen would do faces. Verrry cool.
