The yo-yos are equipped with a small LCD screen and red, yellow or blue LEDs that flash as you spin it. When you first start playing with the yo-yo your warrior is ‘born’ and as you continue to spin it you’ll slowly charge your warrior’s skills. When sufficiently charged (you’ll know thanks to built-in sound effects) you’ll be able to play one of 7 different games VIA the LCD screen. You can even battle with another Kodai yo-yo wirelessly over infra-red.-- Kodai Djinns - The Yo-yo Meets Tamagotchi (OhGizmo!)
Nifty. You can get two for $50 and start battling right away. Hopefully the yo-yo won't randomly whine at you if you stop playing with it for a week. That would get creepy.
