Nabaztag

A year ago the "Nabaztag" Wi-Fi bunny was the darling of the digital pet world as others tried to figure out exactly what it was. (We're still not so sure.) For some reason, however, its creators at Violet have decided to subject the e-hare to the whims of French graffiti artist Andre.

The result, Luxist says, is a version with a tattooed ear and a "limited edition" price tag of $300. Somehow, as we study Andre's work in the image on the left, we can't help but think the joke's on us.
