Robovie-mR2 mixes Japanese robotics with iPod Touch power

The team at Japan's ATR Robotics and Communication Laboratories just upped the cool quotient of its series of robots by integrating the iPod Touch. The Robovie-mR2 is the company's latest humanoid robot and features the Apple iPod Touch in its chest as control and communication interface.

While no pricing has been announced, the 30 centimeter-tall robot also features a CCD sensor 3.4 megapixel camera, two microphones and speaker that allows it to communicate verbally. You can check video of the Robovie-mR2 robot in action here.
