Japan, land of the Anime & Manga, the bullet train, ninjas, efficient cars, technology, rice, sushi, and crazy sex dolls has a new cute little invention for us. Well, sort of, as it’s only available in Japan for the time being.
The cute little gadget is called the Twimal by toy maker Takara Tomy and will be available for sale on March 31st. I know all the Twitter addicts in North America will be dying to get their hands on this one. The Twimal (short for Twitter Animal) is a ‘pet animal’ that will read your tweets for you. It is connected to your computer via a USB cable and is able to read the tweets, replies, tweets from other users, and up to three hash tags. There are two different Twimals to choose from each with a different voice. This Twitter Animal currently only works with Windows OS. Check out the promotional video below (in Japanese).
The Twimal will set you back $31.
