Sure, this little 9" guy looks cute while just standing around.... But he wouldn't have made the site if we hadn't watched the video of him MOVING. This guy can rollerskate, skateboard, and walk in a totally realistic, almost-creepy-miniature-human sort of way. Check out the video links on the merchant's website. Really the first time I've ever been impressed by a commercially available robot. Gotta be those gyro sensors, whatever they are. Wirelessly controlled via bluetooth enabled keyboard or cellphone.
