Tux is Companion to Linux Fans


Tux DroidWe have neglected Linux users for awhile, but we figure this wireless creature will make up for the faux pas. The Tux Droid connects to your PC and lets you know with sound, lights, and noise if you have e-mail. He will respond by voice recognition or touch with infrared sensor, and can be used as a VOIP phone. His eyes and beak open and close, he turns left and right, and his wings move up and down, and he dances with happy feet in his own way. Connectible with a USB fish, his open source software allows for programming of Tux widgets in Python and creating other applications.

Tux comes with a remote, a built-in rechargeable battery, a wireless 2.4GHz link, and will run on Linux kermel 2.4 or later. Pre-order for $99.00 for a delivery date of 1 to 3 weeks.
