Robot Watch Transforms Into Tiny Desk Clock

Robot Watch Transforms Into Tiny Desk Clock
I’m absolutely in love with these cool metal robot watches. Not only can you wear them on your wrist, they pop out of the band to become mini-clocks you can put on your desk. Each of the little guys has flexible metal arms, and a little pair of “headphones” on top of his head that come in handy if you want to hang it from a pendant or a keychain.

Robot Laughs Its Shiny Plastic Ass Off

Robot Laughs Its Shiny Plastic Ass Off
I’ve certainly seen my share of stupid robot tricks in my day, but this is the first time I’ve seen one have a hysterical laughing fit. Sure, the $3,000 Speecys SPC-101C programmable robot can walk and dance around, but more importantly, it’ll laugh at your bad jokes if you train it properly.

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart
I’ve always wanted a headline like that. It sounds like something out of Weekly World News. However, I assure you that this time it’s 100% accurate. The Mega Mech Airmagination Inflatable Robot has to be one of the worst product names I’ve heard in a long time.

Playstation Reincarnated as Robot Insect

Playstation Reincarnated as Robot Insect
I’ve seen some interesting hackjobs in my day, but nothing quite like this. Builder Harold Ilano has built himself a little robotic insect from the remnants of an old Sony  Playstation console. Harold’s Mercury BEAM Robot was scavenged from a variety of junk parts, but an old PlayStation console was the primary contributor, giving the ‘bot its two motors and other internals that keep it chugging along.

Roller-Walker: the Real Rollerskating Robot

Roller-Walker: the Real Rollerskating Robot
A while back I had a very popular post about Plen, a little bipedal humanoid robot who happened to be able to rollerskate. While that was all for show, this robot actually skates around as one of its primary methods of locomotion.

This trio of pint-sized robots connects to your media player and rocks out to the beat of your favorite tracks. The robotic musical group, known as Bandroid, has a lead guitar player, keyboardist and drummer, which can each wildly gesticulate to the beat.

R2-D2 Webcam to Drive Star Wars Fanboys Crazy
Everyone’s favorite little trash-can droid can now be a regular occupant of your home or office, thanks to the new R2-D2 webcam. The little guy is a pretty accurate replica of the famous droid, complete with authentic movie sound effects.

Gakken Centipede Robot is One Creepy Crawler
There’s just something about anything with more than four legs crawling around that gives most people the willies. This centipede robot kit will have those folks heading for the hills. The Gakken Mechamo centipede robot measures in at about a foot long, and runs on batteries.

Optimus Prime 18-Wheeler iPod Dock
I guess news of this Transformers Optimus Prime iPod dock has been floating around for a few months now, but this is the first time I’ve seen up close photos of this fun compact stereo in action.

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender
A couple of months back, I showed you a rather silly beer-pouring robot that seemed to do nothing more than slow down the process of pouring you a brew. On the other hand, this ingenious robotic drink machine actually looks pretty cool.

Where Do Chuck E. Cheese Robots Go After They Die?

Where Do Chuck E. Cheese Robots Go After They Die?
Old robots never really go away — they just come back to life singing new tunes. The gang over at Boing Boing have introduced me to this strange new trend of taking the old animatronic animal musicians from Chuck E.

Robot Can Understand Several People Talking at Once
Here’s a pretty impressive demonstration of a complex new speech recognition technology. The robot in this video clip is able to listen to three people speaking at the same exact moment, understand exactly what they each said, then process the data dynamically.

Mini Robot Bugs From Japan

Mini Robot Bugs From Japan
I was checking out Bandai Japan’s website earlier today when I came across this new micro robot that they’re coming out with later this year. The Hex Bug series of miniature insect robots scurry along on six legs, just like real bugs.

Robot Can Predict New Surroundings

Robot Can Predict New Surroundings
A team of researchers at Purdue University have devised a method to teach robots to navigate foreign environments by themselves. Using some very complex artificial intelligence, this robot can make educated “guesses” about what it might next encounter in its surroundings.

Lost in Space Robots: Danger, Will Robinson!

Lost in Space Robots: Danger, Will Robinson!
If the beer-pouring robot I told you about earlier today isn’t really your cup of tea (no pun intended) maybe you’ll like this one. Now you too can own a fully functional, life-sized replica of the original Lost in Space  Robot B9 from the famous 1960’s sci-fi TV show.

The Asahi Robocco BeerBot automatically opens cans of your favorite brew then pours you a perfect tall mug of the frosty stuff. The robot stores up to six cans of beer in its refrigerated belly, then dispenses them into a glass mug when you’re ready for a drink.
