    What ever happened with the Keepon? I though it was cool, but way expensive for what it did -- kinda like the Nabaztag.

    The toy version was just released at Toys r Us today. $39/unit, which isn't nearly as bad as Nabaztag.

    Let me know when you've got a hack finished. Would love to write it up on CNET and give you some glory.

    I just got one of these for xmas. If you wrote a program and some easy to install usb package, you could make some dough...

    Yeah, I should be talking to the BeatBots (makers of the Keepon) guys soon actually. I know I'm still missing some control codes, and they're all about modders working on it.

    Do you have a picture with the motor wires plugged in?
    In my excitement to take the Keepon apart, I did not make note of their location.
