Akazawa PLEN Robot
Those longing for their dearly departed Sony Aibo may be able to find a new robotic friend in the Akazawa PLEN Desktop Hobby Robot ($2,400). Only 50 of these little, expensive hobby robots are initially being made. Designed to be controlled through Bluetooth devices such as your cell phone or a PC keyboard, this little guy can be instructed to mount and use a tiny skateboard with ease. He can also get busy with a pair of snap-on skates to do basic stunts like the pros.
