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.

Well, it's $150 dollars and only available in stores in Europe (you can buy it in the US online) so the only way it can stare at you is on the 'net. So what say you? http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/8301/ tongue
