Just when you think the digital pet craze thing is about to abate, a new, more involved, even zanier Japanese virtual companion steps up to take the place the last generation left when we got sick of it (not that we'll ever be able to truly fill the void AIBO's left). The Otoizm, shown at the Tokyo Toy Forum, responds and reacts when you plug it into a music source like your iDog, but it sounds like Otoizm uses your audio to grow, animate, and mature from the tunes you feed it, and "dances," "sings," and interacts with other Otoizms in kind.
