Considering the fragile state of the economy these days, it is probably good to start saving money. Sure, you could use an old-fashioned piggy bank, but technology always gives us an electrical alternative. This is where the Robot Money Box comes in.

This bipedal robot is extremely small, measuring no larger than your thumb, and yet it possesses enough intelligence to receive and interpret commands from a remote control. The brilliant folks at Takara Tomy have even thrown …

I-Shovel, the Automated Snow Shoveler

by Mark R

Sure, everybody loves the Roomba, that lovable little iRobot device that can vacuum a room all by its automated bad self, so it is only logical that someone would create the I-Shovel, an automated robot snow-shovel.

Anybot Telepresence Robot

by Al

The Anybot telepresence robot is a videophone with a bit of a difference. The screen and phone are incorporated into a 2 wheeled human sized robot. Like a Segwat the Anybot uses the same sort of technology to always remain upright even when bending (I’m guessing this is so it can look down on your minions even when you’re away from the office). It has a top speed of 6 …

Pole Dancing Robot

by Edwin

Could this actually happen in the future, where people actually find themselves turned on by robots? Perhaps not in the form factor that you see above, where a robotic DJ and a robotic pole dancer (check out the way “she” wiggles her rear end) practise in bringing the house down on a future Saturday night. Well, I suppose when future robots have been properly skinned with something that resembles a …
