He's back and uglier than ever
Over 40 million Furby toys were sold worldwide in 1998. It was announced a few months ago but now we get the details: the horrible plush monster is back with 500 kilobytes of memory and voice recognition to respond to its owner.
It can laugh, smile, frown, gasp, yawn and express fear or boredom. If you ask Furby to tell you a joke, it will obey and really, I don't want to think about what kind of joke can come from that disgusting gadget.
Its back, mouth and stomach sensors respond to petting, feeding and tickling. A communication sensor in its belly can detect the presence of companion Furbies.
Available in the next few weeks for $39.99.
