The Nabaztag Smart Rabbit from Violet is a Hello Kitty-like "smart object" connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi. The high-tech bunny is linked to the Nabaztag Web site and lights up and/or wiggles its ears to convey various data drawn from the Net. It can also be programmed to read RSS feeds, e-mails and text messages out loud. Owners set preferences for which items they'd like read. The rabbit can also play MP3s, voicemail messages (only in France), and Nabcasts--podcasts recorded by members of the Nabaztag community.
