Manoi AT01 robot more fun, efficient than a toddler

This Manoi AT01 robot has a soft, rounded body that makes him seem really cute and cuddly, deceptively hiding his serious innards. Manoi can run around, stand on one leg, pick himself up after he falls down, and other things a toddler can do, but Manoi never cries or needs to be fed. Standing tall at 13.3 inches and weighing an intimidating 3.1 pounds, he's sure to be a solid addition to your burgeoning robot collection. He's available for pre-order now for about $1,300. That's only $100 more than the Andvanced Acrobatic Robot, but it's much less crappy looking, so get out those credit cards.
