The Ferrari of pet robots


It's not made by Ferrari but it's expensive like one, come in red, and was designed by Kiyoyuki Okuyama, the same man who brought us the elite Ferrari Enzo. A 39 centimeter tall humanoid robot from a new company called ZMP, the Nuvo looks a bit retro — like something out of Iron Giant or a Jack Kirby comic — but it's strictly high tech. Users can control the Nuvo from the PC using Bluetooth or if they really want to impress their friends, they can control it using their cellphone with a special accessory that allows them to navigate using a real time video feed from the robot's camera eye.
