EyePet steals show (and hearts) at Sony's Secret Garden media event

In Pictures: Making friends with the Sony EyePet

Mark our words: the Sony EyePet is going to be big. And when we say big, we mean BIG (think Hurley out of Lost and you're halfway there). Like Nintendogs and Tamagotchi before it, Sony’s latest EyeToy innovation appeals to anyone who has ever stared wistfully into a pet store window (i.e. - nearly everyone). In essence, it's a virtual pet that you interact and play with on screen. Spend a few minutes with the EyePet and you’ll feel an overwhelming desire to adopt one. It's just so wondrously, devastatingly adorable that it's impossible not to fall in love.

We managed to get some hands on time with the EyePet at Sony’s 'Secret Garden' media event at Sun Studios, Sydney. Despite being flanked by fully playable Uncharted 2 displays, the EyePet drew the biggest crowd. Never underestimate the power of 'cute'! Check out the rest of the slideshow to see the EyePet in action. (Just try to keep the delighted cooing sounds to a minimum).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
