Aside from supposedly being the fastest runner and best jumper among similarly constructed robots, ROPID also responds to voice commands, with either action and speech. It's so talented and cute that I don't even suspect it could have an evil side, but I guess we'll see about that when it turns into a Christmas must-have toy seasons from now. [Robot Watch via Dvice]
