MyDeskFriend Combines Facebook With a Little Robotic Penguin

Arimaz's MyDeskFriend is a little penguin that rolls around your desk, has 5 moods, responds to physical input and connects to Facebook. I kinda want one.

It launches in September for just $99, and is meant to be a social media companion. Your friends can interact with it via your Facebook page, and it can read messages off of Facebook to you. Its eyes reflect its mood, and will memorize 10-15 short vocal commands.


It doesn't actually seem to do much, but it is kind of a neat toy for office workers and people who are in front of their computers all day. [MyDeskFriend via GetRobo via Technabob]
