Feb 5 2009Want A Mini-Robot Version Of Yourself?

little-robot-you.jpg

If you answered yes, I want you to leave your name and address in the comments section, as I'd like to send you some anthrax literature. You will not be saved. But, for the sake of my Pulitzer, I'll report on these devilish little bastards anyway. Available from Little Island for a little over $2,000, the little creeps serve as a VoIP phone so you can talk "face to face" to you family or pets while you're away. But wait, there's a little more!

Unfortunately, the "robot" doesn't appear to actually have many true robot abilities, although it does have a built-in camera to let you check out its surroundings via a connected computer, and it's apparently able to do a few basic tasks like read your RSS feeds or check the weather. The bot is also essentially just a plush PC itself (complete with a 500MHz Geode processor), so there's certainly plenty of opportunity to expand its capabilities for those so inclined.

Oh my God, you're actually considering one aren't you? You are sicker than I expected. And let me tell you, I expected at least a 9 of out 10. And to think, your parents said you'd never be a 10 at anything. You showed them!

Little Island promises to craft you in creepy robot form [engadget]

Thanks to Julian, who had a robot version of himself until it drank his last beer and had to be scrapped.

Oh snap, with a doll like that I could take over the world. By world I mean, Southern California, and by Southern California I mean my street.

CREEPOLOGIE
Gadgets.Google Maps. And things that can kill you.

Why does practically every post have to start with some tard calling first? What's the point? I've seen it a few times when I FIRST started reading thi... hey, it's exhilarating to write, that's what it is.

Wow here I was wondering what pride someone gets from telling us that they spend most of their time on this website waiting for the next new post when writing it afterall is like a high. First. I'm fukkin first.

That feels AWESOME, but I could never join the firstarded.

I SO WANT ONE OF THESE!

@8.... jealous much? ;D

@10 Jealousy couldn't be further from the obvious. Nice winking smile also fuktard, go back to aol where you came from.

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Tender Dracula where Dracula's man-servant's ex-wife who is now the wife of Dracula walks a tight rope across Niagra Falls.
On the way she fries some eggs with a gas cylinder and a hub cap from a Beetle.
The eggs are over cooked when she arrives on the other side.

Wow, if it was too much like me I'd probably kill it...damn robot bastard stealing my porn

ohb iyORBOTS here drUINKING MY BEERR DAAAM ROBTOS loook juTS LIKE MEEeee LERTs DO a aSHOT WOoWOOOO

SHUT UP!!!!!!

TENDER DRACULA IS NOT A REAL MOVIE!!!!

TD is the equivalent to dividing by zero

this is creepy, who is narcissistic enough to buy one of the toys?

i have a feeling the only people that will buy these will be the douche-i-est people. because of course we need more of them, but smaller and creepier...

CHOBITS!!!

its time for your wakey wakey exercises!

some poor bastard will be making a call home when their dog is destroying it.... the owner learns that his dog would certainly murder him given the chance, and a virtual feeling of being ravaged

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photoshop job, You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max started building robots and selling them at Wal-Mart. They were cheap and easy to operate and could do manual labor that people didn't like to do. When they finally became pervasive in society, they demanded equal rights. Thiis meant that people couldn't own them anymore. They mostly went on welfare, and went to work making more robots who also went on welfare. Eventually a robot was elected president of the USA.

Daisy's the man! (errrr WOman)


Creepy....

Fail... 2.0

@18 there IS a 70's movie that was quite horrible called tendre dracula... i am assuming that the american spelling "tender" threw you off

daisy sucks, she needs to get a new joke

@Daisy - Wait a minute, that's actually happened for real, not a movie. Barack Osama is a robot! You can tell that because the shadows are all wrong, Barack Osama is supposed to be 50% niggar, but the pale complexion of his skin give him away.

I tried to use the word niggar:
Oops, you used a bad word.
Then I rewrote it as niggar instead, OK NOW I've been cen-sored! Fu-cking politically correct liberals!

REAL!!!!!
You can tell this is real and not photoshopped because there are correct shadows.

This is like that scene in Geekologie where Daisy was a robot and people found out and reprogrammed her to not make fu-ck-tard comments on the comments sections so people can actually discuss the topic of the article

I have no issue communicating without the use of profanity. Quite frankly, the english language offers much more colorful adjectives. The point being made is simply that in this country, where this blog is hosted, we have freedom of speech. The same freedom of speech that would protect this blogger (GW) in court. I find it rather disingenuous of him to post NSFW content and genitalia jokes, then censor our comments about them

@36

I think I found a new friend.

B.A. Baracus Hussein Obama is awesome.
