Robot Holiday Savings Bank

robotbank2.jpg

Get your kids or buds a head start on this year's Holiday with this Robotic Savings Bank. Touch a red activation pad and it will sound off one of 16 phrases that will encourage savings. Once fed a coin, it will sing "Santa Bring Me a Dinosaur." By December you will probably want to feed it to a raptor after listening to the same song for 7 months.

Must Have: Robot Gifts For The Studious

bookends.jpgsharpener.jpg

For the scholarly robot freak, these Robot Bookends would make a great gift. Made of wood, each side is 5.5" x 3.5" x 8" and personalization is available. And because we believe that those who still read still know what a pencil is, think about this 4.5 x 2 x 3.6" plastic Robot Sharpener from Kikkerland.

Korea Breaks Ground for Robot Land

roboland.jpg

We have previously written about South Korea's plans to build Robot Land. It seems that they are about to break ground at the theme park and hope to complete it in 2012. Included will be a roller coaster in the shape of a waldo, a stadium for robot competitions, water slides, exhibitions and a research development department. Let's not forget that some of the staff will consist of robots. Hopefully, enough humans will be around to witness the fun.
