NEW YORK--While DigitalLife 2007 did see a better turnout than last year according to those who attended both, there wasn't all that much in terms of new tech toys at the show.

Lots of favorites simply continued to make the digital world rounds.

The R2D2 television projector from Nikko was set up to play the famous lightsaber sequences scenes from the Star Wars films.

Lots of people were playing with the Novint Falcon at the Novint Technologies booth. The company announced Thursday that the 3D game controller would be available at CompUSA stores this October for about $239.

WowWee showed off its RoboPanda, Elvis, Roboquad robots and the Fly Tech Barry B. Benson remote control flying bee.

And who can resist the i-Dog, especially when it now comes in a "Spi-Dog" version. The MP3 speaker pets now even have scarves, hats and ear warmers in addition to the carryall. Too cute.
