Guinness Certifies i-SOBOT as World's Smallest

It's common for robot manufacturers to claim a "world's first" for one
of their robots. It's rare to seem them offer proof. So it's not
surprising when there's an exception that Lem Fugitt of the blog writes,
I thought you might find this interesting and newsworthy. He has
some details about a joint Taakar/Tomy and Sanyo press event in
Osaka, Japan in which Guinness is revealed to have certified the i-SOBOT
as "the smallest humanoid robot in production". Lem included some photos
and video of the tiny robot in action. The i-SOBOT is expected to retail
for about $350 in the US and Japan later this year.
