An ideal holiday gift for anyone passionate about the latest in gadgets, robotic toys, and consumer electronics, the interactive playmate can zoom around desktops, express moods, respond to voice commands, sing songs, and read aloud email messages, headlines, stock quotes, and weather.
The device integrates into its owners’ Facebook account via a Facebook application that allows users to give their device its own name, profile, and personality, as well as nurture its moods and manage its daily life.
Its tiny, it befriends you and appears to me as slightly creepy. But if you like your social-networking, you’re going to like Pingo. Its a tiny robotic penguin that sits next to your computer and interacts with you, delivers you news, reads emails, RSS feeds, headlines, weather and responds to voice commands – hey it does sound pretty useful! Pingo is also different from other similar products in that it links with the user’s facebook account. It launched two days ago, if you get one of these, you’ll be able to use its dedicated Facebook app to give it a personality, profile as well as manage its daily life.
