If you’re a lonely geek, you may love the idea of having a Mini-Me robotic version of you to accompany you, or to help you out with some simple daily tasks. The Japanese company, Little Island, creates a robot based on the picture you send them and it costs you $2,215 for having them to create this Mini Me robot for you.
The Mini-Me robotic doll is simply to engage in conversation with you, especially when your days are too boring and you want someone to talk to. Other than that, it’s able to read RSS feeds for you and make VOIP calls. This little robot is actually a computer that is powered by a 500MHz processor and it runs Windows XP as the operating system.
The little robot has a 80g solid state drive, a speaker, a webcam and various sensors and servos, and there is a power cord and Ethernet cable attached to its butt. It’s also loaded with voice recognition and speech synthesis software that make it able to emulate your voice after you teach it. A video of the little doll in action is as follows:
