Sega Toys Unveils Mu-Bot for iPods and MP3 Players
QJ.NET – Jul 16, 2006 at 10:16PM …Tokyo Toy Show 2006… Sega Toys and Avex Entertainment showed off the portable music player accessory called the Mu-Bot. The Mu-Bot’s hands serve as ear phones and the cord can be reeled inside the bot’s tiny body….Sega plans to release the Mu-Bot in December for 2,500 Yen ($21).
Why do I call this the “Nothing-Bot”?
In Japanese, “mu” means ‘nothingness’….But this looks like nothing but like Marvin the Robot from last year’s sadly-flawed The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy film.
