You know all those times you wish you’d had a cute plastic wabbit to read you your email? Well, wish no more, for yout wildest dreams are fufilled!
The plastic bunny with ears like TV antennae can read out emails and mobile phone text messages, tell children to go to bed, alert one to a stock collapse and give traffic updates by receiving internet feeds via a wireless Wi-Fi network.
“It gives a visual and vocal representation of what is on the internet,” explained Paul Jackson, an analyst at research house Forrester. “It is also a nice way of making physical your relationship online with people.”
Its called Nabaztag, which means ‘rabbit’ in Armenian and costs about $150. Its already a huge success in Europe and it about to make its debut here in the US.
Last December, Haladjian appeared on CNN for three minutes and received 350,000 online information requests.
“The only problem was that we had zero bunnies, we had sold them all already and we had not even started selling them in the United States yet,” he said.
Its basic internet feeds, like the news, email, and the weather, are free. You can also make calls, or send text messages, for a fee. Uh, I just really hope it doesn’t start reading some of the spam I get out loud………
