Japan has a long love affair with robots. It also has a long love affair with mobile phones. So it’s not surprise to find out that mobile phone provider, Softbank, is offering a RoboPhone.

The phone will have arms and legs and it can be folded into normal mobile phone. The Robophones will have faces according to the mood of the owner.

otherwise from that it’s just a regular phone. No word yet on the pricing of this weird combination.

    If the robot doesn’t move automatically, who needs it? I mean, I want it to take my calls and messages.

    Well, that’s exactly what’s great in Japanese inventions: They are useless most of the time!
