Meet Plen, the Android-controlled Android

Released by Akazawa, and imported by AudioCubes, Plen is billed as a "desktop hobby robot". But unlike most miniature bipedal hobby robots, Plen can can be controlled via your Android handset.

Akazawa has paired Plen with a native Android app for sophisticated motion-based control over a bluetooth connection, including a series of complex built-in poses and actions, including skateboarding!

Plen's release is extremely limited; 50 will be sold for $3,000 USD each. Due to the small run and the inclusion of Bluetooth connectivity paired with an Android app, Plen is one of the more expensive hobby robots, but also one of the most unique.
