There were rumors on the Rolly crawling the internet for a while now, and today Sony finally unveils the truth about this new robotic toy, the ROLLY.
Essentially the ROLLY is a kind of wireless speaker/audio player with 1GB of internal memory, you can interact with it and select the tracks you want to listen to. The Rolly is an autonomous audio player and has a battery life of 5h when it plays music from its internal memory and 4h 30m if the music it streamed to the ROLLY via Bluetooth computer connection. Finally you can also PLAY with the Rolly since it will be able to somehow “dance” in rhythm with the music it plays for you.

What’s this? Not a Chiclet but an 8GB hard drive! Toshiba showed off its tiny, 0.85-inch hard drive last night, which is so small that it may have to be slapped with a “choking hazard” warning. It actually has a Guinness Book of World Records entry and weighs all of 2 grams. The drive has just jumped from 4GB to 8GB…can 16GB be far behind?
At its storage booth, Toshiba also showed off external storage hard drives (the first it’s ever released), plus the first-ever writeable HD-DVD drives, in form factors for both desktop PCs and laptops. I didn’t photograph those because, well, they look exactly like regular computer components.
