RINGBO put a song in our hearts the other day, and now that we've pretended to sit in its little robotic seat, we can assure you that the experience is just as magical as the video makes it out to be. In case you're curious, the bumper-mounted IR sensors work great for stopping Junior from knocking over another vase, and the controls really couldn't be simpler. We heard a price somewhere in the ballpark of a few hundred dollars, but there's really no telling until it lands Stateside for reals. Check out our best approximation of the original music video after the break -- and be amazed.

And the original:



And the lyrics, one more time:

We are down we're crazy fools
Every day at school
Teachers here, teachers there
Books and books they're everywhere!
Come on boys we need to dance
We have got a good chance
Lay your problems on the floor
Clap your hands and sing once more!

Everybody let's go to the game
We can dance there
Dance and eat ice cream!
Everybody dancing all night long
Try to do it
Sing a happy song!

Music dancing in the night
We can get so high
For no reason, no don't stop
Now's the time to take it to the top
It's a sweet and happy song
Sing all night long
Lay your problems on the floor
Clap your hands and sing once more

Everybody let's go to the game
We can dance there
Dance and eat ice cream!
Everybody dancing all night long
Try to do it
Sing a happy song!

Time to dance it's time to sing
Sing a happy song (laugh)
A happy song!
Yo yo yo!

Let's go!
Let's go boys!
Come with me and sing!
(A happy song)
