The Vietnamese toymaker Tosy Robotics, maker of the eerie mRobo, recently debuted two entertainment bots at the IFA in Berlin, Germany. The $100.00 SketRobo can not only draw 200 pre-programmed images, but can also produce custom portraits. The next generation will have a built-in camera to take a picture of a human subject then reproduce it.
DiscoRobo dances to tunes, features coordinated facial expressions, and will carry a MSRP of $60.00. Both will be available to humans in 2013.
