Tux wirelessly connects to your computer and is fully compatible with Windows, Mac or Linux systems. A fully customisable series of applications mean he can act as a music player, news service, event notification, skype phone, weather forecaster and more! With full text-to-speech abilities in more than ten languages, he'll even read your email to you as it arrives!

Tux can blink his eyes, light-up his eyes, swivel on his base, flap his wings, talk and he can also hear, tell how dark it is, sense a push on his head, a push on either wing and accept commands from the included IR remote.

Fully programmable and customisable at every level, with all of the source code and software used freely available, Tux can also evolve as you either create or download new ways to use him. There are already loads of new add-on ムwidgets' available from open source communities that add even more functionality - and we're sure there'll be plenty more to come!
