new nabaztag tag


nabaztag just came out with a new rabbit version that has a ‘belly button’. next to its normal features (e.g. ear position communication
is quite impressive), the wireless bunny now is able to ‘listen’,
allowing voice messages to be easily sent, podcasts & web radio to
be played etc. it now can also RFID-wise ‘sniff’ physical objects &
react to them (for instance, holding door keys in front of it will urge
it to send “I’m home” messages to your friends).

as an ‘old generation’ nabaztag owner, I can only welcome its
increased intelligence & the extended sound features. actually, my
ambient display rabbit is quite funny & useful, if it only could
withhold itself of loudly announcing the arrival of spam email messages
during some meetings…
