I had a blast the other day playing with this remote-controlled robot at the KDDI Designing Studio in Harajuku. The robot is controlled through an AU mobile phone with special software, and you either make it do pre-programmed moves, or just move around with the directional pad. Seeing it get up is simply amazing.
