Mitsubishi doesn’t just churn out wonders like their line of Lancer Evolution cars, but they have also delved into the world of robots with the Wakamaru being one of them. Of course, forking out $15,000 for one of these might just make you baulk, but the Wakamaru, like a pooch, was specially designed for family life. It will move along to your life rhythms, waking you up in the morning and being able to understand 10,000 words connected to everyday life helps make communication a whole lot easier. Built-in face recognition technology makes it a snap to recognize up to 2 individuals within the household as its owners, and up to 8 other people at a glance. Integrated collision detection sensors ensures that he won’t be a klutz when moving around.
