Android robot controlled by Bluetooth

Posted by Starr Keshet

Androids may dream of electric sheep, but a Bluetooth controlled ‘bot designed by Hideyuki Takei and Reo Matsumura is certainly no ethereal fantasy.

Although the unofficial mascot is only capable of executing limited movements, it will certainly be welcomed by Android fanbois, geeks and nerds all over the globe.

And what about Google? 



Well, Andrew Lim of Recombu recommends the Mountain-View based company sell the endearing robot, while Gizmodo’s Kat Hannaford proposes a free Bluetooth-controlled ‘bot with every Android purchase. 

Not a bad idea, really! But what about R2D2 from Star Wars? Anyone!?
