“Rocobo” — a new pet robot from Tomy Corporation will be invading your desktop soon.
As described in Amazon Japan it will go on sale next August for 1,344yen ($10.86 USD). Advertised as “the moody person’s robot,” the Rocobo reacts to how you treat it—It will shake its body, and flap its arms if you yell at it. Conversely, the Rocobo will glad if you stroke or treat it nicely and will sing a song to you, tell your fortune, smile on its LCD screen or flap its ears.
Annoyingly cute, heh?
