Robophilo is a compact personal ,“ready to walk,”13-inch tall robot has over 20 individual servos for controlling joints, and can be programmed to do some pretty complex moves.

 

The $499 RoboPhilo is available just in time for the holidays from the RoboBrothers online shop. We think it’s a perfect holiday gift.

Macworld Expo is only a bit more than month away, and we are expecting surprises. We heard that CNBC is reporting about Apple plans at Macworld to introduce a 12-inch Mac laptop with flash memory in place of a hard drive.

There are suggestions that the ultraportable Mac is 50 percent thinner and lighter than a current MacBook Pro, the largest notebook in Apple’s lineup. The pricing is expected to be at $1,500, the same price as the 13.3-inch black MacBook.

Also, we can expect 3G version of the iPhone. Let us wait a bit.

We already seen noble-looking Nintendo DS with gold, But what about some crystal-embedded system? Crystal Icing make this precious gaming device with Mario for $350.
