The Karotz “smart” rabbit is the first-ever hardware device tailor-made especially for Facebook. It is the third generation of the multipurpose, internet-connected rabbits which first launched in 2005 as Nabaztag and has since become an Internet icon. The immensely popular robotic companions transform daily life by providing a link to family, friends and the world. Karotz is now compatible with Facebook– a wonderful addition to its already extensive range of features.

“We are excited to launch the new Karotz smart rabbit which is compatible with Facebook, to allow people to interact both with their new companion and with their friends wherever they are“, Fabien Bardinet, CEO of Violet. “Following the successful launch of Karotz in the US at CES this year, we are confident that it will also do very well in Europe as Karotz already has a strong fan base of people who like to keep in touch with their friends and family via social networking sites on a daily basis. The concept behind Karotz is to make communicating with friends and sharing information both an interactive and fun experience.”

Karotz can record and post status updates as an audio file, text or photo directly to your Facebook wall. You can speak directly to Karotz and share news and thoughts with friends at any time of day in real time by updating your Facebook status. You can also show friends what Karotz sees by taking a picture of yourself via the built-in webcam and posting it directly on your Facebook wall. In a few days friends will also be able to take control of your new companion Karotz via the Facebook app to communicate with you by sending messages and audio files and even sending you a poke.

How does it work?
First, you need to put your Karotz in Facebook mode by saying “Facebook.” You will then be able to take pictures via the webcam and post these directly on your wall simply by saying ‘picture’ to it. You can convert spoken words to text by saying ‘text’ directly to Karotz in order to update your Facebook status and to send messages. You can also ask your favorite companion to read aloud any comments from your Facebook account. Meantime, there are many more features to discover on

About Violet and Karotz
Karotz is a multipurpose Internet-connected rabbit. He moves his ears, speaks, reads, listens, his body lights up and he even detects the presence of other objects (by sniffing them). As he is permanently connected to the Internet, he can act, react, transmit or broadcast many types of content available over his network, – news, messages, music, text, alerts, radio, etc. He can hear you, obey your commands and even recognize things you give it to “sniff”. Born in 2005, Nabaztag has since become an Icon for the new era of smart, communicating objects. Karotz was launched in 2011 and is the third generation of multipurpose rabbits. Amongst the new features, Karotz also knows how to see and can show its owner what it sees wherever they are situated in the world and they can also listen via a PC or a Smartphone.
