Make no mistake about it: corporate cartoon characters are nothing like real people. Whereas you or I would celebrate a birthday by knocking back a few drinks, doing some things we’ll probably regret later, waking up with a wicked hangover the next afternoon and calling it a day, corporate cartoon characters get a multi-year long celebrations in their honor. Just look at Hello Kitty, who turned 35 last year but here we are in 2010 with yet another HK anniversary themed gadget. This limited edition 12.1 megapixel Casio EX-Z90 isn’t even the first Casio HK camera to be released for the anniversary, but it is by far the most pink and bling-blingiest. It boasts the same specs as its non limited edition sibling, including 3X optical zoom, auto-detect and “Intelligent” autofocus, so what you’d really be paying for here is the ability to blind your friends with your devotion to Hello Kitty. Sadly it’s exclusive to Korea and will cost you $500, but c’mon….Swarovski crystal encrusted Hello Kitty cameras don’t pay for themselves, you know.
