Looks like the i-SOBOT is getting an award, even after it has been discontinued by Tomy. They are discounted heavily at Trossen and Amazon if you are in the market for a slightly belated Christmas gift. I will probably pick one up after the new year if they aren’t sold out.
Judges awarded this year’s Grand Prize to i-SOBOT due to its advanced technology, its high entertainment value, and its reasonable price of under 30,000 yen (around $300). Equipped with 17 miniature servo motors and a set of gyro sensors for balance, the 350-gram (12 oz),
16.5-centimeter (6.5 in) programmable humanoid can walk, play air guitar, dance the hula, and perform 200 other moves.
