Sony's 'Rolly' goes goth in Japan

Dancing egg gets black 1GB version.


The exact purpose of Sony's " Rolly " may never be clear, other than to help keep Ricky Martin's career alive. But now, only months after its U.S. debut , the dancing egg has offered the ultimate evidence that it's here to stay: It's coming in different colors.

Unlike the original white version, a black 1GB Rolly is available for now only on the Japanese market, which will also get new speaker covers in red, blue, and silver, according to Akihabara News. We're still not interested (can't get past the Martin thing), but it could make a good pet for your "Nabaztag" or " i-Buddy ." As for us, we'd like to see it in a WWE smackdown with the " Clocky ."
