The House Sitting Robot
Well, it doesn't actually fight off the robbers but it does manage to take neat photos of the culprit and promptly posts them to you on your 3G videophone. Presto! You have visual proof of who busted your house. But before you pick up the phone to call the cops you better check if the alarm was a genuine one and not just your pet accidentally knocking off things. Just for this purpose, the robot gives you a live feed to your videophone. So whether you are in Tahiti or in Paris, breathe easy. The House Sitting Robot will take care of your house and keep you informed about all intruders.
Roborior, as this cute robot is called, unfortunately is available only in Japan and that too for $2600. We can only hope that this hot selling gadget of Japan will soon find its way to this side of the continent.
