Chumby: Cuddly and Functional
The internet just got a whole lot more cuddly – meet the latest CHUMBY. Chumby takes the best of the Internet and puts it into a soft, playful and cute little package. Music, sports scores, weather, news, gaming and messaging are all among the over 1,000 different widgets that Chumby makes available.
Just can’tleave the net behind – not to worry – this WIFi enabled squeezable Internet tool gives you all the info you need from the net in a squezy package that you could even snuggle up to in bed…
Tell Chumby what information you want, and it finds it on the Internet automatically for you and updates itself constantly. Chumby can even become an Internet radio through Pandora. (Though sadly not for us folk in Australia)To keep itself fresh, Chumby has a Linux-based, open-source platform that is open to developers who want to improve the product with cool new widgets….
