iDog for your iPod
Have your heart set on an . Hailing from Japan (as if you couldn't guess), the new iDog moves, groves, and emotes based on where and how you touch it. It includes a built-in microphone that responds to sounds and can mimic your own voice. You can even toggle switchs to change iDog's mood from good to bad. But best of all, you can connect iDog to your iPod (or any MP3 player) and play music through it's speaker while it waggles it's ears and paws and displays neat visuals through its phototransistor. iDog is available in "iPod white" and measures 4.5"W x 4"D x 4.25"H and weighs about 6 ounces. The $46 device comes packaged in a box that that looks just like an Apple iPod box. It's expected to ship sometime next month. Woof!
