Japanese Robot Gets Giggy With iPod Music

A new Japanese robot combines iPod with the joy of robots by getting giggy and dancing in sync with songs streamed from an iPod.

According to Wired, the robot uses a series of algorithms to calculate movements in response to music, which the company says could be the basis for a new breed of semi-intelligent, semi-autonomous virtual pets.

I am just getting over the iFish, iDog and iCat series, which are small little interactive speaker critter toys that hook up to your iPod or MP3 player and swish their tails with glee. Not sure I'm ready for iPod robotics.
