Karotz Smart Rabbit

The Karotz Smart Rabbit is a PC- and Mac-compatible gadget that brings a variety of fun and useful apps into a small, entertaining form factor. Through a web page interface, you can load up your Karotz with applications from an “Appz Store” that, while small, is growing daily and is open for developers to do business.

If you take a look at the Karotz Smart Rabbit it is cute, quirky and would look good on just about any desk.  But what is the Karotz?  And is it really useful?  Karotz is a Wi-Fi connected robot that can read your RSS feeds, Twitter, Facebook, tell you the weather, wake you up in the morning and much more.  Through the Karotz website you are able to load applications on to your Karotz.  While currently the “Appz” list is small is it always growing.  We’ve had our Karotz Smart Rabbit in the office for about 3 weeks now, read on the see if it has been useful to us.
