The holidays are upon us and so we need robots for under the tree. Enter the $65,000 “Emotive Robotic Avatar” from Hammacher Schlemmer. He’s a servo-actuated bot that can wave its arms around and go from looking happy to looking evil.

It’s controlled by a tablet PC with a 30 foot range that can receive a real-time video feed. The “operator” can even speak through the robot, which will change the pitch in your voice. Cool stuff, if you can afford one.
