If you're a Kondo KHR-2HV
hobbyist and the usual choices for headgear all seem a little too safe, you might want to check out this next item. YouTube user 'ogutti' has posted a video of the robot he built using an iPod touch for its control unit and user interface.

At the very least, this thing does have a rather cute animated visage -- although it does seem a little too top heavy for any serious tournament fighting
. See it in action for yourself after the break.
