The Emotional Lamp and The Talking Rabbit.
The Dal Lamp (flash image after the jump) is one of those devices that just makes me wonder where we are going with all this technology stuff:
Dal can receive messages sent by your friend via email or via your telephone. The messages are colored animations that can be created for each type of emotions you want to show. A personal language and grammar can be created between two persons: only them knows what the lamp is expressing.
Beautiful concept but I’m having real difficulty thinking of a real practical use (I know, I know, it doesn’t have to have one but it would help!)
Violet are also the company behind the Nabaztag (great flash intros after the jump). This one just has to be seen to be believed. Oddly enough, I can see the appeal if you travel and have young kids that you don’t get to see every evening. If you just like talking devices in your living/bedrooms then you might want one – not for me though.
Strange, strange, place, this wired world…
