Keepon finally for sale

Posted 8 Feb 2011 at 19:58 UTC by mwaibel Share This

The funny yellow dancing robot KeepOn of youTube fame (see above) will finally be available in a toy version. The toy version will look the same as the current research version, which is used as a telepresence tool for autism research and therapy. However, unlike the research version which is priced at 30'000 dollars (!) a piece, the toy version will retail for a mere 40 dollars. For now it's not completely clear what the toy robot will be able to do, but according to the BeatBot's press release it will maintain the reactivity to touch and its ability to listen to music, detect the beat, and dance in a perfect rhythm.
