DeskFriend from Arimaz

Postby adam.klaptocz on 18 Dec 2009, 10:45

Swiss robotics company Arimaz has just launched its "Deskfriend" robot. The small wheeled penguin is a robot pet with built-in social networking skills. Like most robot pets it will reacting to shaking, poking or scratching, and can dance and sing you songs. What's special about Pingo is that she's a facebook addict, accessing your facebook account, delivering updates and reading your messages out aloud. In a twist on the once wildly popular Tamagotchi pets, Pingo requires interactions and gifts delivered via Facebook to stay happy. The robot toy comes with its own facebook app and retails for USD 149 or 101 Euros.
