Sega's latest virtual pet speaker – the iPenguin


Not content with inflicting both the iDog and iFish on the world, Sega thinks we need more animal-like speakers toys in our lives – and has launched the iPenguin in Japan.

Apart from being in the shape of a penguin (or a PC mouse with arms and legs if you like), it follows the same well-worn steps of previous Sega toys. That means it operates as a speaker for your (i)tunes, reacting to the music you play with a series of movements, flashing lights, burst of happiness and the occasional strop.

No news about this making the trip out of Japan, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it does. After all, everyone loves a penguin.
