Takara Tomy's remote control robo-Q robot is tiny, incredibly cute

Takara Tomy never
fails to impress, and with its latest robot, it's done an excellent job
at eliciting "awws." You see, the February-bound robo-Q bipedal robot
is about the size of a human thumb, yet its heart and mind are big
enough to understand commands via remote control. There's even obstacle
recognition software built-in to keep it from toppling over gigantic
foreign objects (you know, like toothpicks and push pins), which is
awesome enough in and of itself to warrant the ¥3,675 ($42) price
