World's smallest humanoid robot in production

Japanese toymaker Tomy is showing off the 'Omnibot17u i-SOBOT' robot today in Tokyo. It is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's smallest humanoid robot in production. The 16.5 cm tall robot, powered by Sanyo Electric's eneloop nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries, is able to talk about 180 vocabularies and has about 200 different types of action patterns. The robot will go on sale in Japan for a price of 29,800 yen (about Cdn $258).

Wow!! The world's smallest humanoid robot!!
With a single charge, I wonder how long will the batteries last.
$258 is a bit too expensive. I guess I would buy it if it is under $100. (^0~)
