R’BOT – You Never Talk Alone


R’bot is an electro-mechanical multimedia robot buddy, developed by the Swedish Awerks AB company.

You can enjoy listening to MP3 files through its built-in mono speaker or by using stereo headphones supporting Bluetooth (A2DP). The RAM memory capacity is 4 GB and there’s also a Memory Stick Pro Duo slot.

On the face of the R’bot you’ll find a 320×130 px OLED screen which can display various face expressions. He is also able to read out emails, SMS messages, RSS Feeds and documents.

Still not enough to satisfy your daily need of robot geekiness? Ok, here we go: It can walk around on your desk without falling over the edge and there’s a built-in fire alarm with a one-touch 112 dial up.

Still not enough? Ok, here we go again: You have a burglar alarm connected to a GPS and it’s waterproof down to 1 meter (3.3 feet).

Available colors: Red, Black, Silver, Yellow and Blue.
