Push-kun, the cute robot with the menacing silhouette

It would be easy to call the Push-kun another lame toy robot if it wasn't for its striking resemblance to the terrifying spider bots of Ghost in the Shell. With a top half that could easily be mistaken for a trash can, Push-kun walks, talks and even beats its own body as a drum. None of these functions have any particular purpose, and that's probably due to the fact that Push-kun made its first big splash at the Baka RoboCup (Stupid RoboCup). Hopefully, when Robocops become a reality, they won't be designed around an unsettling insectoid motif like Push-kun. You can check out the creepy video of this "fun" robot scurrying around the streets of Japan here.
