It's common for robot manufacturers to claim a "world's first" for one of their robots. It's rare to seem them offer proof. So it's not surprising when there's an exception that Lem Fugitt of the Robots-Dreams.com blog writes, I thought you might find this interesting and newsworthy. He has posted some details about a joint Taakar/Tomy and Sanyo press event in Osaka, Japan in which Guinness is revealed to have certified the i-SOBOT as "the smallest humanoid robot in production". Lem included some photos and video of the tiny robot in action. The i-SOBOT is expected to retail for about $350 in the US and Japan later this year.
