What’s a Chumby? Glad you asked! It’s an amazing little piece of technology that lets you get what’s best on the web and delivers it right to you on it’s 3.5″ touch screen LCD. You can play games, check the weather, twitter, news, music, and even watch YouTube videos. All of this is done via you home’s wireless Internet connection.
