The Unofficial Apple Weblog (better know as TUAW) brings you what has to
be one of the more unusual and adorable iPhone accessories: the Smartpet. Part iPhone cradle, part robot, the Smartpet uses your iPhone as it’s ‘head’ and control module allowing it to display numerous cartoonish expressions. The software of the Smartpet uses your iPhone’s camera to learn your facial features and allow it to recognize gesture movements via the front-facing camera.
Sadly, there’s no report on if or when the Smartpet will be available in the US. For more information and a demonstration video see the TUAW article.
