Micro Pets-i is a smart tiny robot designed by Japanese company Takara Tomy. The difference from traditional robot is that Micro Pets-i has the cute animal shape, which is popular by girls and kids. Micro Pets-i first came out in 2002， and now they are re-launched after being improved by integrating more ai.
Micro Pets-i is something like a Tamagotchi, but it’s more interesting. They can do many things that you want them to do, walking around the desktop, chasing prey which you throw, singing as well communicating amongst themselves, and all you have to do is to slightly tap the table for giving the pet an order.
Micro Pets-i is available in all kinds of animal shapes. You can get it for about $18.7 USD at Amazon.
