Image 1: Britney Spears' chihuahua, Bit Bit, wearing a mink coat. A miniature, hairless, famous, dog wearing mink. From the Dog's Crib portion of her official website. Via Pink is the New Blog.
Image 2: Eva, an android that specializes in incredibly lifelike (and incredibly scary) emulation of human facial expressions. A QuickTime movie of her in action can be found here. Via Engadget.
