Okay, this is just WRONG. Sega has released the iDog, a “musicbot” that allows you to play your iPod (or other digital player) through its speaker. It lights up, it moves its ears, it makes a lot of noise, it plays back your recorded music through a crappy little mono speaker (while its servo motors whir and an internal sound chip adds annoying audio effects to the playback). Make it stop, please make it stop!
Watch the video to get that sinking feeling of techno-decadence run amuck.
