For everyone who’s ever wanted a robotic dog to dock their iPhone in there’s finally a solution.
Tech Pet is a new toy from Bandai that uses app-powered magic to bring itselt to life. The Tech Pet can laugh, cry, sing and dance all in response to your actions. If you have a God complex this is definitely the toy for you. If you have a Dog complex you will not be disappointed either.
Tech Pet is a iPhone cradle that connects via a 3.5 mm jack, making it one of the few products I’ve seen this week that weren’t instantly “obsolete” (if you love grumbles, try talking to iPhone accessory makers the day after a new iPhone release).
Tech Pet can play music, take calls and look adorable whilst doing so. Tech Pet can also respond to voice commands and hand gestures. Tech Pet can be fed and cleaned. Tech Pet can make friends with other Tech Pets – then sing and dance in glorious Tech Pet harmony.
Tech Pet has an RRP £59.99 and will be available in November from Toys R Us, John Lewis, Argos, Amazon and The Entertainer.
