The Rymble is a small device which seems to come from the same universe which spawned the Nabaztag Internet connected rabbit thingy. In this universe we all have a desperate need to move away from the computer screen and receive our Internet input from cutesy little gadgets which move, blink and make noises when anything ‘significant’ happens. Me, I’m not totally convinced.
All this blinking and chiming may seem like a good idea, but to be honest it kind of gets in the way of me…y’know…finding out what’s actually going on. And for that, a quick glance at the screen is still probably optimum. Anyhoo, your mileage may vary, in which case stand in line for when this little thing arrives later this year. Priced at €99.00.
