Because of the nature of this product, my usual evaluation format will not be used. This will just be a brief quasi-informational page with four photographs, four spectrographic analyses, and a pair of video (one of a song that reminds me of the way this bird smells and another showing it in operation).
This is a soft, rubbery inflated chick (a baby bird, NOT a curvacious girl!) specicially designed to be sold shortly before Easter.
It features two bright blinking LEDs inside (one red, the other blue) that are activated by hitting it in the palm of your hand -- the LEDs blink for 13 seconds (timed on a clock with a second hand on it); then they self-terminate.
Regarding the word, "lite" in the product's name (seen in the scroll text of a computer demo program):
"ONLY A F46607 WOULD REPLACE 'GHT' WITH 'TE' EX. 'NIGHT' AND 'NITE', 'LIGHT' AND 'LITE', 'BRIGHT' AND 'BRITE' . WHAT IS YOUR GUYS' GAY INCEST WITH THE 'TE' COMBINATION ANYWAY?"
One thing I noted almost right away: the stupid dead bird has a fairly strong 'chemical' or 'solvent' odour to it if you hold it anywhere even CLOSE to your nose.
Chick activated -- blue LED on.
The green color is caused by fluorescence of the
outer shell of the product; it's supposed to do this!
Spectrographic analysis of the LEDs and the outer shell's fluorescence in this product.
Spectrographic analysis of the red LED in this product; spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between 630nm and 650nm to pinpoint emission peak wavelength, which is 644.193nm.
Spectrographic analysis of the blue LED in this product; spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between 445nm and 465nm to pinpoint emission peak wavelength, which is 457.085nm.
Spectrographic analysis of the fluorescence of the outer shell of this product (when irradiated with the inbuilt blue LED); spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between 500nm and 530nm to pinpoint fluorescence emission peak wavelength, which is 510.777nm.
