Wow, was it really all the way back in 2004 that we first saw the FrienZoo? And they're just now beginning to ship the PC-less versions of those saccharine little monitors of theirs? Well, guess it takes a little while to raise a barn full of computer-animal hybrids; looks like they're still "intended" for nursery and preschools, but we'd like to import a few over here to the wrong side of the Pacific just to show Hanspree a thing or two about how it's really done when you slap some crazy junk onto monitor bezels. Expect the versions with a display you don't add yourself to have a 1280 x 1024 17-inch screen with a 600:1 contrast ratio and 300cd/m2 brightness -- nowhere near enough to offset those bright, adorable colors (save the koala in back).
