Evolta Mascot Made Into Charger


Panasonic certainly knows how to take advantage of its Evolta robotic mascot. After attracting plenty of attention at the Iron Man Triathlon last September, they have now turned the little guy into a battery charger. We figured that sooner or later he would become a living, breathing boy robot. So far he is only available at Amazon Japan for 3,910 JPY (~$50.00.)

Bachman Bothered by Bot


Poor Michele. You just never know who she will run into in pursuit of her political dreams. On her recent stopover to Iowa City's Hamburg Inn, the presidential candidate had to deal with a couple of dozen hecklers including this "gay robot." The Roboprof chimed in with them saying, "I am a gay robot. I oppose Bachmann's position on gays, whether they are human or robot."

It turns out that the bot in question was Kambrew McLeod, a U of A communications professor who also showed up at a 2007 rally for Bill Clinton. Loud holiday music was blasted over some loudspeakers and local police were called to the fracas, but no arrests were made.

Kikkerland does more than just cool wind-up critters. We found two robots that you can add to your collection that also have a function. The 4 piece Robo Measuring Cup Set comes in red, is made of food safe ABS plastic and is a mere 3-1/4 X 7-3/4 X 2-1/4-inch" when stacked.


The Robot Tea Infuser is made of rust-proof stainless steel, has arms that will fit any sized cup or mug and includes a tray that can double as a saucer.

Must Have: NFL Robot Action Figures


Football season is finally here so why not go robot while you go team? The 12" Eli Manning has a magnetic hand for holding included football and is fully articulated so that you can play between the action. Push a button and the player becomes a bot. If you prefer Dallas to New York, the 10" Cowboy is for you.


Wait, there's more! How about a 10" bot representing the Green Bay Packers? Perhaps the 12" New England Patriots Robot is more to your personal preference. Each is posable and goes great with chips and dips at halftime.
