Sometime ago, we saw that Takara was capable of coming up some neat Transformer mp3 players, these attracted a considerable amount of attention across many blogs. Now Takara Tomy has done it again by introducing their latest ROBO-Q tiny adorable robots. Thought with a heavy price tag of $42 for a robotic toy of its size, the ROBO-Q robots definitely won’t disappoint.
…about the size of a human thumb, yet its heart and mind are big enough to understand commands via remote control. There’s even obstacle recognition software built-in to keep it from toppling over gigantic foreign objects
Not the latest news but these are very neat gadgets:
Takara Tomy, Japan, released its ‘Transformers Music Label Series in the Japan market, which consists of a ‘Soundwave’ mp3 player which supports memory cards with a SD slot and earphone ‘Frenzy & Rumble’. The mp3 player it self runs on a single AA battery which can last for about 6 hours.
Based on the video I found from YouTube (after the jump), these were available in very limited quantities and were quickly sold (within hours!). However, i have managed to find a site that claims to sell them in a set of two for $169.95 available in mint box: http://www.tfsource.com/Reissues/mp-3%20Player%20Soundwave/mp-3-soundwave.html.
