If the three letter acronym reminds you on another recently introduced toy robot you are not mistaken. Sega announced the E.M.A. robot (aka WowWee Femisapien) last week. Tiger Electronics is also selling the A.M.P robot through Sega.
The A.M.P. Automated Music Personality will blast your music through his state-of-the-art stereo sound system - with attitude.
Simply plug in any MP3 player and let A.M.P. Automated Music Personality show off some of his best dance moves. Perfect for the modern lifestyle, A.M.P. Automated Music Personality stands at 29 inches tall and features a sleek black and yellow modern exterior with stylized chrome detailing.
With five different modes and over 62 sound effects, numerous electrifying dance moves and 49 expressive LED light animations.
Remote control operated and easy to use, just plug any MP3 player into A.M.P. Automated Music Personality and secure your MP3 player in the case located securely on his back.
You’ll feel the beat as A.M.P. Automated Music Personality delivers powerful stereo sound through a 5” mid-range speaker and two high output tweeters.
A.M.P. Automated Music Personality’s Dynamic Balancing Technology enables him to dance and roll balanced on two wheels. You can also add more boom to any song with the dedicated bass boost button. Take control and be the DJ as A.M.P. Automated Music Personality becomes a virtual mixing deck. His distinctive touch pads serve as a way to layer different sound effects and scratches over your tunes. Use the left touch pad to add music effects and the right touch pad to control the audio.
The A.M.P is a more advanced version of music robots we have seen already including the iDog and the crazy iZ Zizzle.
A.M.P. Automated Music Personality will be available nationwide at select consumer electronics online retailers starting this October for an approximate retail price of $500 (steep!).

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
