Erm .................... No.

Nice link though, and if I had a daughter I certainly would not like her to find this one.

Imagine having to progrmme HS to talk with it and all because your daughter wanted it.

All we would get when we arrived home is "Hi Sandy, you have had five calls from your Boyfriend; David called, James called, Rich called, Mark called, oh and Tink called.

The thing I don't like about it is that it appears to work only through a central server on the internet, but maybe this can be bypassed...

Anyway, I think it's pretty cool...

What do you mean by "central server"?

Ah yes I see what you mean, just had enother look.

Personally I would stay way clear of this type of thing.

I have a Nabaztag running with Homeseer for a while now.
It works like a sphisticated wifi loudspeaker for announcements.
Also, there is a webcam on it so people watching the e-maison's site can have the rabbit talk to them. This is really a hit, mostly for swearwords, burps and farts...

The Nabaztag has to be connected to a specifc server, but the answer is now very fast and reliable.
I could post my Nabaztag scripts if you need it.
