Why read tweets when Twimal reads them to you?

For those of you who are too lazy to even glance at your screen whenever you get an update from Twitter, boy do we have some good news for you. The folks over at Takara Tomy in Japan have announced the Twimal (Twitter + animal?), a USB-powered creature that is your best friend when it comes to Twitter. Just in case you don’t want to spend time reading tweets while you’re doing something else that’s taking up the whole screen, i.e. work, or playing a game, you can still get your Twitter updates without having to launch your Twitter window. Plug in the Twimal, configure your settings and you’re set. Each time a new Tweet comes in, this little “creature” will read it out to you. You can choose either a male or female voice, and it will be in stores in Japan on March 31 for $31. No word of when it’ll hit the US, but you can expect the gray market to pick up the gadget.
