Voice-Activated R2D2

Star Wars fans will probably enjoy the Voice-Activated R2D2 from Hammacher Schlemmer. The robot understands more than 40 voice commands, such as "turn around" or "behave yourself," and makes all of the character's trademark sounds, such as happy and sad whistles. An infrared sensor allows the robot to follow people around, navigate rooms, or operate as a security alarm when you're away. It can also play tag, answer simple yes-or-no questions, and trigger dialog and sound effects from the movies. Power is supplied by four AA- and four D-size batteries. Direct sales of the toy only begin in January, but SkyMall has it today for $120.
