Those looking for a little robot companionship but wary of them potentially turning on you when you least expect it may want to consider the latest creations from Japan's Take G, which boast plenty of style without any of that pesky "technology." From the looks of it, there's plenty of different stationary contraptions to choose from, ranging in size from just a couple of inches to over two feet tall. Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or availability, although we're fairly certain they won't come cheap, if they're even for sale at all.
