Ampbot to Compete with Rolly

Sega and Hasbro have collaborated on A.M.P. Automated Music Personality (aka Ampbot,) a robot that can dance. The 2.4 foot tall bot gets down while bobbing his head and flashing red lights on his LED. Hook the Ampbot up to an iPod or MP3 player and his tunes will come out of his stereo speakers. The turntable-like hands control volume, scratching, and sound effects. Clearly this is the companies' version of Rolly, but he is certainly more user friendly. Ampbot will become available in Japan this November and go global in about 18 months for ¥80,000 (~$745.00.)
