Japanese Readies A CanBot: Robot in a Can

We’re surely living in interesting times. Imagine your beer can walk up to you, and if that weren’t creepy enough, you realize that it isn’t your regular ‘beer can’, but a CanBot. Ask Ron Tajima, and you’d know that the CanBot he has readied is a robot packed snugly inside the body of your regular beer can.

CanBot that can...

The CanBot is a robot, complete with batteries, 3 RC-servo legs, and an embedded control board and is neatly encased within the body of a beer can. The CanBot is remote-controlled, which he calls the Wiimote. The CanBot apparently isn’t Tajima’s debut creation. He had previously readied Pacmba (wherein, he could play Pac-Man with the Roomba), and Wiimba (which was a portable, remote controlled vaccum cleaner).Tajima has a video (look below), in which the CanBot can be witnessed in action.
