20 Nao robots dancing

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on June 22nd, 2010


We already knew that Nao had the ability to dance, but check out this small Nao army all dancing together in preparation for some sort of musical apocalypse where they will dance on our graves.

I wonder if other bots will tune in and buy tickets to this cute, but terrible for us little number. Yes, this is what the Earth will look like when we are gone. Robot party time.

Botropolis: This week in robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2009

Botropolis: This week in robotsWell we made it to another Friday without being killed by a robot army. That’s always something. Over at Botropolis we continue to keep a watchful eye on all things robot. If they gain sentience we will know it. If they begin to dream, we will know it. But if they get us first and silence us, God help you all. Here’s some of what we covered this week:

Robots Using Lightsabers.

Schoolgirl Robot Dances.

It’s time to dress up your digits and have your friends judge the dance routines as you take your clock by storm with the Finger Dance Alarm Clock. This clock will keep ringing unless your fingers are able to hit the correct sequence as depicted by the lights.

Sony Rolly discontinued

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2009

Sony Rolly gets Bluetooth, more memoryWe wish we could say that this came as a surprise, but nope, we kinda figured that the little Rolly was on The way out. The Sony Rolly has been discontinued in the U.S. The good news is if you are located near a SonyStyle store, go check it out to see if they have them in stock. Thy are having a fire sale with a price of $99. That’s $300 off the original price.

Again, this is no big surprise. The Rolly was a $400 dancing egg. You do the math. But we can’t help wondering what Sony will dream up next to take its place. Maybe a little dancing and hopping cube. Think Rubik’s cube meets Disco.

MIT Labs TOFU robot is a furry dancing machine

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2009


If a Gremlin had sex with a bird, then decided to have a threesome with Keepon, then a Furby wandered by delivering a pizza and getting in on the action, this would be their bastard lovechild. It’s name is TOFU, a “squash and stretch” robot with OLED eyes developed by the boffins at the MIT Media Lab.

Tofu uses techniques of social expression that have been employed by 2D animators for ages, to explore the impact on robotics. One thing is for sure. That bot knows how to groove and puts most humans to shame with it’s dancing skills. The video above shows off his moves, which are strangely very pimp-like.

WowWee Joebot dances, while Roborover is a shy geek

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2009

WowWee Joebot dances, while Roborover is a shy geekAs always, WowWee has some new robots up it’s sleeve, despite branching out into other products. They look interesting as ever. What I like about their robots is that they actually infuse them with some personality.

In this case, Joebot is the large guy. A dancing rhythm robot that responds to beats. He’s the life of the party. The Roborover explorer on the other hand, starts out shy and gets bolder over time. I love the design on these guys. Full press release below.

USB Pole Dancer keeps dollars in your pocket

USB Pole Dancer keeps dollars in your pocket
You know how it is, you can’t always get to the strip clubs as often as you’d like. So you wish and wish, and yet somehow a pole dancer has never appeared in your workspace to shake her stuff at you. Until now.

Just plug this baby into your USB port and watch her twirl as you type faster and faster. She’s awesome because she’ll shake her money maker and never ask for a single dollar bill in her G-String. Lonely nerds everywhere will be abusing their keyboards and buying replacements in no time. It’s almost too much fun for $29.25. The only way it gets better is if she stopped to windex the pole so another girl could begin.
