The concept of a thin client is becoming more and more obsolete as more interaction, timeliness and personification are required from the user facing the client.nI am exploring how toys can become super fat, interactive web clients. I will be presenting what I have discovered along the way as I hack a Furby, connect it to a Meteor chat app and make the toy literally ''possessed'' by other users. Warning: It can be scary!n
