Sanyo developed this conceptual robot to check out the foundations of homes in Japan and make sure there's no structural damage or other problems. It goes on sale next year for less than $8,850. Which means it's in the $0.01 - $8,849.99 price range. Probably closer to the high end. It's called the 'Yuka Shita Inspection robot'. Which pisses me off, because I was just about to develop Yuka Shita brand toilet bowl cleanser.
