Anyone come across these virtual pets before? Link to lot. They come with a color lcd screen and appear to have some sort of bluetooth connectivity and battling function. When mine arrives I'll log it, but if anyone has any info on them, it'd be much appreciated.

I haven't seen this before and all I can tell is that it is recent. I wonder if it might be less of a virtual pet and more of a game as the packaging gives an adventure/combat feel. There have been Vpets in the past that have mixed care giving with battling, some seeming to be more heavy on the battling to the point it might as well be a game. What's advertised looks to be a quality item because otherwise I would assume it is some weird knock-off pokeball. Perhaps the producer was going with that angle and while not intentionally trying to be a Pokemon copycat, the similarity was intended to draw the same audience (would work for me since I'm always interested in games similar to Pokemon).

 

Chances are there will be some dialogue in the device which might pose a problem, but perhaps you'll get lucky and it will only be token. Or maybe you'll have a full-blown story; I've heard of people playing JRPGs even when they can't speak the language and somehow they still manage to enjoy the game and complete it. If you have any basic knowledge of RPGs, it will probably come in handy for this device.

      I stumbled across this on Amazon UK, and whilst they don't appear to be in-stock yet, I figured that it was worth mentioning here;
       

      It's a Tamagotchi-shaped Bluetooth speaker.
       
      A product-photograph of the back of the unit shows the typical Bandai/Wiz copyrights, along with one for a company called Teknofun, who must be the manufacturer.
       
      I haven't come across these before, so right now I'm assuming that it's something that's being released for the holiday shopping season.

      Perhaps I'm just dumb, but I wouldn't think that giving the tamagotchis bluetooth would be impossible. It certainly would probably be the best option as of now, with basically all computers AND phones using bluetooth but not the old InfraRed. It just confuses me a bit when I think about it. I'm a bit lazy, and don't have much money, so the thought of having to buy an old phone or a dongle, kind of bothers me.
       
      Does anyone know why this is? No bluetooth I mean . Perhaps there's a technical reason that I don't understand. I am pretty clueless when it comes to how the tamagotchis are made anyway. But since we are so far ahead now with robots and other cool things I just can't wrap my head around this one.
