Virtual pets can get boring, but Konami’s new Otoizm is a yo-yo, pet, and music player all-in-one. Just connect Otoizm to any music player and watch it grow according to the genre of music listened to. It also memorizes phrases and composes tunes that can be played back. Konami will showcase this product at Toy Forum 2006 (Tokyo) and release it in June at the price of $29 USD.
“Meet up with a friend who also owns an Otoizm and the two will have a dancing session. Or, you can record your friend’s voice and a new character—Kotobaizm—appears to play with you.”
