iBuddy brings MSN to lifeDec 15th, 2007 | By Editor | Category: Accessories
Sit i-Buddy on your monitor or desk and it will respond to incoming MSN messages in its own charming way. You can even program it to react to one specific account - ideal for that special someone. But here’s the clever bit: as well as alerting you to your contacts’ status, i-Buddy detects emotions (via emoticons) within messages and reacts accordingly.
For instance if someone puts a heart emoticon in their message, i-Buddy’s head glows and it twists and flaps its wings. And if the blushing emoticon is detected, i-Buddy will glow red. Even cuter, a gleaming red heart in i-Buddy’s chest illuminates whenever a contact is online. Awww!
With i-Buddy mounted on your monitor you can stroll over to the water cooler without having to worry about missing a message from a special friend. Simply keep an eye on this angelic-looking thingamajig’s status and race back when it starts getting in a flap.
Ideal for MSN fans of all ages, i-Buddy brings the familiar yet mysterious Messenger figure to life like never before. We always thought it looked like a dumpy chess pawn with arms, but now we’ve seen it in the flesh (well, the plastic) it’s taken on a whole new persona. In fact, if you’re a fan of instant messaging, i-Buddy is a must-have accessory. So stop msn-ing about and get ordering!
