True, it’s not the exact robot that initially cost a large percentage of your house, but the My Keepon toy robot can still recognise music beats and dance in rhythm – so he’s doing better than me, at any rate.
He also responds to touch, so could be that little robot pet you always wanted. I wonder if he snuggles? The My Keepon ‘bot will be on sale soon for $US40, with some of the profit going towards manufacturer BeatBots’ research into medical robots for therapists and practitioners. I can’t wait to get one of these curiously cute creations. [BeatBots via BotJunkie]
