Tamagotchi gets rival from the future

3D character supposedly interacts with owner

The Tamagotchi has barely gotten into its teens and it's already got next-generation competition.

Japan's Frepar Network is developing some kind of futuristic 3D persona "capable of replying when you talk to it and interact with you when you try to touch it or even blow on it," according to Akihabara News.

All that sounds well and good, but will it get you a date ? We didn't think so.
