Buy Your Own 'Mini-Me' Robot

You may not live long enough for technology to make your body immortal, but at least your soul can live on in a miniature, personalized robot.

A Japanese company named Little Island is selling custom robots for $2,215. You send in a photo and a small mountain of money and they'll mail back a robot that can learn your voice before connecting via LAN to read your RSS aloud. It also features a camera, 80GB of storage, 512MB RAM, multiple servos and can double as a VOIP handset...a very large, disturbingly asexual VOIP handset. [Little Island via The Raw Feed]
