Japanese toy maker Tomy announces details about their world's smallest humanoid robot i-Sobot. Even the Guinness book of records recognizes i-Sobot as the world's smallest humanoid robot in mass production.

Tomy announced the tiny i-Sobot toy robot in January. Today the company revealed pricing and shipping dates.

Tomy will start shipping i-Sobot in Japan on October 25th for 29,800 Yen (~$245). The i-SOBOT can be controlled via a remote. The remote features an LCD display to select special actions like hula dancing (a robot trick pioneered by Asimo in 2004) or air guitar playing. The Omnibot17u i-Sobot supports over 200 action patterns.

Tomy partnered with Sanyo to equip the i-Sobot with the environmental friendly rechargeable Eneloop batteries.

i-Sobot measures 100×165×67mm and weighs 350g.

If and when Tomy releases i-Sobot outside of Japan is not known yet. Japanese Gadget exporters like AudioCubes will have us covered anyway.
