In February, the world’s first phone-controlled robot will be sold in Japan. This robot is made of aluminum and can perform motions such as walk, jump or hand waving. On the picture, the robot is controlled by a Toshiba cellphone. KDDI and “I Bee KK” (a Japanese wireless carrier) is the creator of the robot.
Controlled by Bluetooth, the user can interact with the robot in a 10 meters range. The companies are saying that the robot could also be used as a surveillance device.
Son’y AIBO robot dog was the most expensive surveillance device, it might have some competition, price-wise. This Bluetooth robot will be sold for $1800. At this price, you will assemble it yourself (sic!)
