$30,000 My Keepon Robot On Sale Soon—For $40

True, it's not the exact robot that initially cost a large percentage of your house, but the My Keepon toy-robot can still recognize music beats and dance in rhythm—so he's doing better than me, at any rate.

He also responds to touch, so could be that little robot pet you always wanted. I wonder if he snuggles? The My Keepon 'bot will be on sale soon for $40, with some of the profit going towards manufacturer BeatBots' research into medical robots for therapists and practitioners. I can't wait to get one of these curiously-cute creations. [BeatBots via BotJunkie]
