Nabaztag, a new breed of rabbit released in Australia and New Zealand
Australia and New Zealand will see a new breed of rabits in the wild. Or more specifically at homes. The "smart rabbit" Nabaztag connects to a home network over Wi-Fi and provides information through visual clues.

The gadget is the creation of French company Violet and is being distributed in Australia and New Zealand through IW Distribution.

The visual clues are delivered by colour lights on Nabaztag's tummy. The rabbit also talks and move its ears, and can even stream Internet radio services. The Nabaztag can be configured to tell users when important e-mails arrive on their e-mail inbox, friends come on-line on Instant Messaging programs, or other more complex activities.

Users configure their Nabaztag on-line and can even name their new digital pet. The device can also "hear" through a special microphone in their tummy button. Users can exchange voice messages, or even talk to Nabaztag and give them orders, which a recognised through voice activation circuits,

The latest versions also come with a "nose", which allows users to identify objects, tagged with RFID chips, and for each unique tag a different action can be performed.

IW Distribution and Gadget King will import, distribute, and support the Nabaztag/tag in Australia and New Zealand markets from late February 2007, with a street price of A$259 incl. GST.
