A holiday wish...for me

Business 2.0 asked me to suggest a technological holiday gift wish and I asked for the thing I always ask for, a walking robot.

I asked for this one:

from Lynxmotion.

Someday, I'll get one and will be bored with it 15 minutes later, but for now it remains the most elusive of all gifts (bar world peace and a gun that zaps mildew smell).

Also interesting is the appearance of an ambient display device in the list:

The Money Bunny, from Nabaztag, which appears to be a robotic, wifi-based version of the Ambient Orb from ambient devices, but simpler and more animist.
