Chumby, described as a “cute little Wi-Fi friendly widget machine”, pulls content from your favorite bits of the world wide web and delivers it back to you in a friendly format.
You can listen to podcasts, audiobooks and internet radio, keep track of friends on Facebook, twaddle away on Twitter, watch vids, play games, gawp at photos on Flickr, check out eBay bids, read the news, groan at the weather…the list is endless.
Simply plug Chumby in, let it find your wireless network and pow! – you’re on the Chumby network. You can then choose from over 1500 widgets to upload. There are new widgets arriving all the time, and with no subscription fees the online world really is your lobster.
As well as its widget-tastic capabilities, Chumby features an accelerometer (perfect for tilt-responsive games), 2W stereo speakers and a headphone output.
