Humanoid Robo Hopper flies circles around larger robots

The excitement surrounding Honda's human-sized Asimo robot has long since died down but if Asimo could fly like its tiny look-a-like, the Robo Hopper, it might win new fans. Kyosho's Robo Hopper stands just 6-inches tall and operates in the same any remote controlled helicopter would, but in this case you get to scare unsuspecting pedestrians with a tiny man from the future.

The package includes a PlayStation-esque 2.4GHz 2-channel transmitter and the entire set-up runs on 4 alkaline batteries. The Robo Hopper goes on sale in Japan and online worldwide this December for 10,290 yen ($90).
