The doraemon is incredible. It looks so heavy but it flies! Very good stuff.

The speakers with eyes are so cool


I wanna make a toaster with robot eyes  or maybe a coffee maker

Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

I think the air guitar is pretty nifty example of a rapidly maturing technology...

I liked the cabinet with the retro style robots!

Ive seen those parrots on sale this year, They speak when they detect movement but I couldnt see any sensors on them anywhere.

Also I have one of the Ipenguins that were briefly shown. He sits next to my Ifish :)

Yeah, it's not that new of technology.  maybe a big wheel of servos all spinning at the same time in the same direction.  Now that'd be pretty awesome!  ;D
