Plen the Bluetooth Skating Robot On Sale In Japan

^ Plen, the Bluetooth Skating Robot On Sale In Japan

This roller skating robot from Japan may not drink and spew catchphrases like “Bite My Shiny Metal Ass”, but unlike Bender, you can control this one with your Bluetooth-enabled cellphone.

Plen has 18 movable joints and a 32bit ARM7 CPU inside. You connect him to your PC using USB and he runs/walks/skates for 25 minutes on one charge. There’s only a few available from Japan, so if you want one you probably need to hurry. Available from the land of Dragonball Z for 262,500 Yen ($2,200).
