This roller skating robot from Japan may not drink and spew catchphrases like "Bite My Shiny Metal Ass", but unlike Bender, you can control this one with your Bluetooth-enabled cellphone.

Plen has 18 movable joints and a 32bit ARM7 CPU inside. You connect him to your PC using USB and he runs/walks/skates for 25 minutes on one charge. There's only a few available from Japan, so if you want one you probably need to hurry. Available from the land of Dragonball Z for 262,500 Yen ($2,200).
