Our Beloved Rubber Ducky Goes IOT?
PI Labs Turns the Ducky into Smart Digital Ducky - but should they have?
TOKYO (AP) — The iconic rubber duck has gone digital — but maybe it doesn't need to.
Billed as the world's first "smart duck," the $100 Edwin the Duck is yellow, cute and waterproof, just like the good old rubber ducky floating in many bathtubs for generations. But Edwin also reads and plays music. He quacks, rather than squeaks like the traditional ducky, thanks to internal electronics. Motion sensors turn Edwin into a controller for games.
