Not since Bugs have I been so captivated by a bunny.
From Violet, the “home of the unpronounceable rabbit and other connected whatevers,” comes Nabaztag, a Wi-Fi wabbit that can gather information from the web and actually read it to you.
Nabaztag isn’t brand new, but it’s certainly worthy of a “Weird” mention.
The original Nabaztag was cute. He’d blink, sing MP3 and wiggle his little ears. The Techie Diva says that the little guy got an upgrade this year. Aside from singing and web reading, he also has a little bunny bellybutton that you can talk into.
With the mic, you can send messages to other Nabaztag users or give him commands on what you want to hear, and he responds—and with a lot less back-talk than that Bugs character.
The latest version of Nabaztag is $189. There’s also a special, scary limited version by André available for $300.
