Tai Chi Robots
This robot has 21 moving parts and can do 24 Tai Chi moves. I'm not sure if it's meant to be a martial arts instructor or some kind of robotic bodyguard. I can't tell if it's toy-sized or human-sized, but since they are expected to sell for about $7000, I hope it's bigger and more badass than an $80 Robosapien.
Once again, from my favorite source of news of the weird in Japan, Nikkei.net.
