If puppy webcams are a little too cute for your liking, then perhaps this webcam-packing robot will be enough to get you to hop on the gimmick webcam bandwagon. Unfortunately, its robotic abilities are decidedly limited, with the only non-webcam related function its able to muster being some LED eyes that light up when it detects darkness. Things don't fare much better with the built-in webcam either, which will only give you a basic VGA resolution with none of the fancy face-tracking or other features now common in non-robot webcams. On the upside, it does only cost twenty-four bucks, and it would seem to offer a few modding possibilities -- or, at the very least, provide a suitable target for your over-equipped Robosapien.
