Lets be honest, you wouldn’t normally associate bunny rabbits with cutting-edge technology and superior intelligence. But that was before Nabaztag was born. Derived from the Armenian word for rabbit (so we’re told), this ingenious WiFi-enabled bunny is set to revolutionise the way WiFi fans receive information about… well, about anything!
Basically Nabaztag is a desktop companion that utilises WiFi technology to fetch information from the Internet and convey it in various charming ways. Confused? You won’t be, because you’ll soon be relying on this cute little critter to tell you the time, wake you up, read the news, read you messages from friends, check the stock market and give you tomorrow’s weather forecast today. Nabaztag can even communicate with fellow bunnies and get married.
And that’s just the beginning, because the world of Nabaztag is expanding all the time. Before long this brainy bunny will be able to receive traffic updates, alert you when you have SMS messages, tell you if your train is running late and broadcast ‘Nabcasts’ from fellow subscribers. The possibilities are truly endless.
For now Nabaztag remains an ingenious, always connected communications device that uses lights, sounds and cutesy ear movements to discreetly convey messages to anyone nearby. Sounds can include your favourite MP3 files of music, voices or noises. Simply specify the sound via your computer and Nabaztag will play it through his built-in speaker. Nabaztag can also signal specific information via coloured lights in his belly; so you can set him to glow yellow if the weather’s going to be sunny or red if an email from a loved one arrives. A wiggling ear could signify a falling stock price and a pattern of lights accompanied by a Westlife track could indicate that it’s time to get up… and get a life.
Nabaztag is also great for reminding housemates that supper’s getting cold or you’re going to be late home – simply send a message via the Nabaztag website and let the wireless technology do the rest. There really is no end to the info this charming chap can convey.
The Nabaztag buzz is rapidly becoming thunderous and we reckon he’s going to be a huge phenomenon throughout the wonderful world of WiFi. And of course I would love to have one of those cute WiFi bunnies at home… 😉
