Sega Toys Mu-Bot for Apple iPod

Sega Toys Mu-Bot for Apple iPod
 
 

At the Toy Show 2006 in Tokyo the cute Mu-Bot music player accessory for iPods was shown.

I stumbled over the Mu-Bot in a Watch Impress (Japanese, More photos) report from the Toy Show. The Mu-Bot is actually offered by Sega Toys in cooperation with Avex Entertainment.

The Mu-Bot's hands are ear phones and the chord can be reeled inside the body of the little figure. It can be worn around the neck (see photo below). It is supposed to come in various colors in December. It looks like it does not do anything else, besides looking cute.
Sega Toys plans to sell the Mu-Bot for 2,500 yen (~$21). More details in this Sega Toys press-release (pdf, Japanese).

In 2005 we had the Zizzle iZ and the iDog. I am sure the Holiday season 2006 will see another line-up of interactive iPod toys.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
