Love her or loathe her, Hello Kitty is here to stay, and her reach has extended even farther into technology. On November 1st, Canon brings us the Selphy CP770 portable printer, sporting the famous Hello Kitty design.

You can now put it all together in your Hello Kitty office, talk on your HK angel phone, work on the laptop, watch the HK portable television, and balance your checkbook on your HK calculator, make some Hello Kitty toast on your HK toaster, all while your Hello Kitty Roomba vacuums the floor for you. Sweet!
