Chemistry Salt and Pepper Shakers Earn your geek cred at your next dinner party with these scientific salt and pepper shakers.

iSOBOT – Tiny fully articulating Humanoid Robot

If you’d like to just take in a thousand words in the form of a moving picture, hit the jump for a cool video of all of the moves and features this robot has. The iSOBOT from Tomy is the next Robosapien. Coming in a tiny, but powerful 6.5″ tall, he is a fully articulating bot that not only can move about like he’s an octopus, but is programmable and can react to voice commands.

The magic is in his 17 customized servomotors with built-in clutches; a gyro-sensor for balance and 17 points of articulation in the neck, arms, hands, legs, and feet allow human-like movement.

The way I see it, these surveys can play out in one of two ways for iRobot. Either iRobot will legitimately use the data being provided and utilize surveys that will actually help shape their future products or they created a relationship with a marketing group to monetize their list of contacts. We’ll let you know…
