We’re surely living in interesting times. Imagine your beer can walk up to you, and if that weren’t creepy enough, you realize that it isn’t your regular ‘beer can’, but a CanBot. Ask Ron Tajima, and you’d know that the CanBot he has readied is a robot packed snugly inside the body of your regular beer can.

CanBot that can...

CanBot that can…

The CanBot is a robot, complete with batteries, 3 RC-servo legs, and an embedded control board and is neatly encased within the body of a beer can. The CanBot is remote-controlled, which he calls the Wiimote. The CanBot apparently isn’t Tajima’s debut creation. He had previously readied Pacmba (wherein, he could play Pac-Man with the Roomba), and Wiimba (which was a portable, remote controlled vaccum cleaner).Tajima has a video (look below), in which the CanBot can be witnessed in action.
