Sega is on a roll with its innovative personal robots. Back on Tuesday we showed you the company’s new E.M.A. “robotic girlfriend.” Now, Sega has released the A.M.P. (Automated Music Personality) Ampbot, a 2.4-foot robot that follows you around bumping your music, dancing, and letting you scratch on its turntable hands. The two-wheeled robot comes with a built-in MP3 or iPod cradle on its back, which you can control via a wireless remote. Built into the chest is a 5-inch mid-range speaker in the chest as well as two tweeters in the shoulder. Using six D and three AAA batteries, the Ampbot will pump out music for up to 10 hours. Priced at $500, the Sega Ampbot will hit stores in the U.S. and Japan in November.
