Nabaztag Opera (English subtitled)

Hardly breaking news, but a Nabaztag Opera was organized in France at Centre Pompidou! The sight of seeing all of these wi-fi wabbits is too adorable. Of course, there is a deeper meaning behind the collective art piece, one that explores the longing for community and the way technology can facilitate and hinder connections.

Flopsy, Mopsy and Nabaztag?

Instead of old-school sosumi sounds and soul-numbing Outlook lists, get your calendar reminders, emails and RSS notices relayed through-- a bunny. Nabaztag is no droopy, Velveteen stuffed relic, but an amped-up digital dispatcher with 2-ears, signaling customized alerts through movement, sound, and flashes of colored light. This wired hare harbingers news from cyberland and beyond. Has your stock pick hit an all time high? Screening that IM from your Ex-BF? Nabaztag lights up its belly, waves its precious ears upon incoming digital data and programmed deadlines that can be accessed through your desktop. Nabby can even read the weather report! With its clean and innocent design, yet cheeky functionality, Nabaztag appeals to all--the ultimate pet in today's information age. No need to train lazy Fido to fetch the Times, when you have Nabaztag!
