Who needs a talking parrot when you can get a talking robot instead? The Echo Bot looks like an alien from another world and will record up to 10 seconds of whatever it is you want to say. The critter can then be placed nearly anywhere thanks to its three legs that can be wrapped around things like table legs, and the suction-cup feet that stick to any smooth surface. Should an unsuspecting victim come within 3 feet of the Echo Bot, it springs to life spouting out the vitriol you recorded earlier. The Echo Bot looks like it could make a great novelty security device to keep people away from your office cubicle, but in reality, I think it's better suited for scaring the crap out of my cat.
