Kondo Turtle Robot Crawls Its Way Into Our Hearts

 |  |  |  |  |

While the robots that have found their way from Japan’s Kondo are of the humanoid, bipedal kind, they decided to go off the board this time, offering up a four-legged turtle-bot.


The Kame Robotto is the first robot in Kondo’s animal robot series, and he’s a cute little bugger. A set of nine servos power along the mechanical reptile, who manages to scurry along much faster than most real turtles I know.

He also has a few tricks up his turtle sleeves, as you can see from the video clip. Want one? You’ll have to pony up ¥39,900 (about $460 bucks) – and get someone the guys at Japan’s RT Shop to ship you one.
