The Karotz “smart” rabbit is the first-ever hardware device tailor-made especially for Facebook.
It is the third generation of the multipurpose, internet-connected rabbits which first launched in 2005. The robotic companions transform daily life by providing a link to family, friends and the world.
Karotz is now compatible with Facebook and turns social networking into a natural way of life allowing people to interact without a computer or smartphone.
Karotz can record and post status updates as an audio file, text or photo directly to your Facebook wall. You can speak directly to Karotz and share news and thoughts with friends at any time of day in real time by updating your Facebook status. You can also show friends what Karotz sees by taking a picture of yourself via the built-in webcam and posting it directly on your Facebook wall. Friends will also be able to take control of your new companion via the Facebook app to communicate with you by sending messages and audio files and even sending you a poke.
How does it work?
First, you need to put your Karotz in Facebook mode by simply saying ‘Facebook’, you will then be able to take pictures via the webcam and post these directly on your wall simply by saying ‘picture’. (Getting it yet?) You can convert spoken words to text by saying ‘text’ directly to Karotz in order to update your Facebook status and to send messages. You can also ask your companion to read aloud any comments from your Facebook account.
Karotz offers many more unique features including searching the Internet for any questions or requests, playing music, checking for new emails, reading the weather forecast, RSS feeds, tweets and more. A free Karotz Controller application is currently available from the App store.
