PLEN Robot Controlled by Android [VIDEO]

Those of you with piles of cash might be interested in picking up a PLEN hobby robot for your desk.  The roughly 9″ tall “droid” can be controlled via Bluetooth, either by your cell phone or PC keyboard.  You know where I’m going with this… Check out the video below of a PLEN robot (android) controlled by an app on Android. 

PLEN robots are already selling in Japan for 262,500 yen ($3,000 in US).  Though expensive,  it (he) is a very capable little guy who will be happy to perform for you.  One can make it roller skate and perform skateboard stunts.

I don’t know about you but I can see Android powering more real-life Androids in the future.

      9'' is a whole droid not his "most important" part :) I'm having somewhat hard time visualizing the mechanics, alas my imagination is limited

    Plen is an amazing little robot. I saw a Plen Soccor game played at the IREX 2007 with about 4 players a side. Pretty cute.
    Amazing to me even a 9" robot is envisioned as a sex toy for the sexually challenged.
