Chumby is here! Your morning is now personalized on your alarm clock.
Chumby is the latest in alarm clock technology. It's changing the way we wake up in the morning. The lovable bean bag filled alarm clock is the size of a coffee mug and feeds you up-to the minute headline news. Or rather you prefer checking the weather, traffic, Facebook updates, latest images from I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER, or perhaps you need your Chuck Norris facts fix before you start your day. Whatever you need to get you up in the morning, chances are Chumby has the answer.
Chumby costs $180 and is available in black, latte and pearl. The device connects to your wireless home network, and has touch screen and motion sensor capabilities. The user is able to download widgets (over 700 available) & customize their Chumby directly from the website. Chumby is a Linux-based, open source platform. If you are a flash animator, feel free to show off your talents by building your own widget and submitting it on Chumby's site for others to use. The site also has a Wiki, community forum, blog, and showcase page where you can submit and view pictures and videos of Chumby's everywhere.
If you're a visual person, watch this video. If you are short on time, fast forward to the 2:00 minute mark for the demonstration.
