Sony PS3 EyePet

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Toys, Video Games

EyePet

Recently announced at the Leipzig Game Conference in Germany, Sony showed off its newest virtual buddy. The EyePet works with the camera attachment on the Playstation 3. When you see it on screen, you can play with it. Roll a ball and the EyePet will chase it. We guess that this would be okay for little ones, although unaware parents might wonder why their kids are touching their monitors so much. The virtual critter should become available late 2009.

Interaction Wall-E

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Movies, Science, Toys

Interaction Wall-EHow could we not pay homage to our newest and favest bot? Wall-E debuted today and although we couldn’t make the premiere, we did notice that there are already a truckload of toys and other tie-ins, like this Interaction Wall-E. The little guy’s eyes light up, he moves his head and arms, and has the original movie voice and sound effects. If that isn’t enough, when you talk to him, he responds and, if you are too busy, can communicate with Interaction Eve. At a size of 6.5 x 10.5 x 8.5-inches and a weight of 2.1 pounds, we found one on Amazon for $43.99.

CJ7 Dog Doll MP3 Player

CJ7 Dog MP3 PlayerThis wins our award for the ugliest MP3 Player on the planet. The CJ7 Dog Doll has built-in speakers and 1GB flash memory via USB. At a size of 3.19 x 1.34 x 3.35-inches and a weight of 6.98 oz., the creature comes with what the site describes as a “cute dog doll outfit.” Uh huh. No doubt Paris Hilton might find this amusing, but for $18.67, we think we will pass until they come up with one that works without the fru-fru.

Takara Tomy Bank Quest

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Toys, Video Games

Bank QuestTakara Tomy has yet another toy for the masses. This time it is Bank Quest, a combination RPG and change bank. The more money you put inside, the more weapons and armor you can “buy” to avenge the baddies. The bank can hold up to about ¥50,000 (~$466.00,) runs on 3 AA batteries (not included,) and should be available for those who have spare change around August. At least in this instance, as opposed to those gathering places we call arcades, you actually get to keep the coinage when you play the game.
