We always figured this day would come, but so soon? We’re obsolete, ladies and gentlemen. It’s been a great ride, and we’re glad we got to do just one more Stevenote
with y’all before we fade into the night, but the robots have arrived,
and they’re going to blog harder, better, faster and stronger. We
cannot compete. Bandai just announced the Net Tansor Web, a
WiFi-equipped robot with a built-in camera for snapping his
soon-to-be-award-winning exposés and posting them to the web at regular
intervals alongside witty commentary. The bot can react to reader
comments like "a little to the right," or "you suck, why don’t you just
call it Applegadget?" and adjust accordingly. Net Tansor also can
handle live video, reads RSS feeds out loud and knows no fatigue.
Bandai’s going to be selling this for 50,000 Yen (about $490 US)
whenever it’s ready.
