Video: A tiny, smart alec parakeet lives inside the Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi—meh? Hardly!

As this short video shows, there’s a built-in parakeet-thing that repeats what you say into the microphone. Here, the guy says “say something,” to which the parakeet responds, “say something.” Very heaven.

Now, does that take away from the fact that, save for the wireless store, the DSi can be described as a minor update at best? No, but for Pete’s sake it’s a talking electronic parakeet. Even though I’m a cynical killjoy I still find it “neat.”
