Looking for a friend this summer but can’t stand the thought of direct sunlight and/or human interaction? Then try the i-SOBOT. It’s a six-and-a-half inch robot that comes pre-programmed with almost 200 individual movements and can be programmed to perform up to 240 additional movements, should you get bored of the stock motions.
Best of all, it’s small enough that it probably won’t be able to kill you in your sleep. Just in case, though, better go easy on it until the two of you get to know each other.
