Tosy Robotics Launches Speakers That Double Up As Dancing Robots

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Tosy Robotics, a robotics and high-tech toys manufacturer based in Vietnam, unveiled mRobo Ultra Bass, a state-of-the-art portable speaker that doubles as a dancing robot at the CES 2012. Popstar Justin Bieber did the honors, and showed off the dancing robot.

The battery powered mRobo boasts two gigabytes of internal memory, and allows users to upload some 500 songs into the device via a USB port and select which tracks to play using a provided remote. The music plays through an integrated speaker, with the ability to produce bass at 40Hz. Once the music begins playing, mRobo, which can listen to its own music, music from other devices, or music streamed via Bluetooth, starts grooving through a series of pre-programmed dance moves.

MRobo weighs approximately 3.3 pounds and measures 4.3 inches (W) x 6.3 inches (L) x 7.9 inches (H), and stands at just under 18 inches when it transforms into a robot.  mRobo Ultra Bass is expected to retail for $199.00 in the fall of 2012.
