Crush, Kill, Destroy!

Lets be honest, not much is cooler than a robot. If the generation-defining cartoon Transformers taught us anything it's that giant robots with guns are awesome. So when the latest version of the Robosapien appeared in our offices, naturally we were excited.


Whilst not being a giant killing machine, the Robosapien is capable of some pretty cool stuff. It has a full range of manual controls for its arms, torso and head, as well as the ability to walk at different paces, and acquire a target to move towards. It can dance, pick up and throw things and even right itself if knocked over. Words cannot describe the glee on our faces as we marched him around the office into surprised departments. The highlight of this was when one of the unsuspecting victims placed a toy dog in the Robosapien's path, only to have him pick it up, crush its head and throw it away. Brutal.

The Robosapien is available for around $160 and at that price we predict it is going to be one of the big Christmas sellers. That is if we don't purchase them all to construct our own world dominating super army. Toy dogs beware.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
