Styled to look like any of a number of exotic species of Asian, Australian or South American parrots, That's My Parrot! is so much more than just a shoulder accessory.

Personal communications device; diary/calendar system; head clearance warning system; GPS; part-time ventriloquist's dummy (or ventriloquist) and more, it sits on your shoulder and tells you all you need to know, where you need to go and puts on quite a show.

In Hurry mode it even deploys a small siren with flashing lights, to allow you to tear along a sidewalk in a hurry, without having to push people out of your way.

       Similar to something I did in 2003, [FT].   

       Mine couldn't be arsed telling you whether you're about to accidentally enter the "Butch Collective Women's" toilets in the Russian Steppe village in which you've decided to sleep overnight.

       Gyroscopic balance mechanisms or painfully strong grip on shoulder? Also needs an attack mode.

       There - you see? I told you all that [Ubie] would come up with a good idea eventually.

       [Ubie] or the parrot?

       The parrot, bozo.

       Not me, I can assure you, sport.

       Well, I'm sure you've been friendly with a cockatoo in your time.
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 24 2012
  

       After hearing the lurid tales of your experiences in that field I decided I didn't need to partake of that sort of fun, [Max].
