Say Hello to our new Web 2.0 Bunny

Nabomuk the Nabaztag"Hello, my name is Constantin and I have a cyber-bunny." This is probably something I'll say during the next "Geeks anonymous" meeting after my wife forces me to see a shrink or something...

Anyway, meet our new guest at the Gonzalez home: Nabomuk! As you can see, he is a rabbit-ish looking little plastic high-tech fella. I didn't find a carrot this evening but he seems to like bananas, too.

Nabomuk is a Nabaztag, a new breed of Web 2.0 rabbits that are currently multiplying all over the world. They're a clever new "connected object" idea by a n innovative french company called Violet. A Nabaztag tells the weather and stock market trends, it can receive messages (Meet me on Facebook to try it out) and read RSS feeds and there's an API to program your own stuff for. It performs Tai-Chi with it's ears multiple times per day (this is not a joke), tells the time and it comes with an RFID reader that it uses to "sniff" objects. What a fun little gadget!

Of course, most of the rabbit is happening at some datacenter somewhere in the world. According to the Nabaztag entry in Wikipedia, the Nabaztag Website experienced serious service disruption problems after being overwhelmed by the many Christmas 2006 NabazTransactions. See? We told you we developed UltraSPARC T2 and Solaris with a purpose in mind! So if you happen to know anybody at Nabaztag, or if someone from Nabaztag is reading this blog, we have just the right solution for your datacenter...
