A Segway for your robot?

At least it's not asking for the keys to your car

Segway

That's right, Sparky. Now your favorite bot can tool around on its own personal transporter with "human-sized performance."

Segway has released its "RMP" (Robotic Mobility Platform) for the "quick and easy transportation" of civilian and military robots, according to Engadget. The price is steep--about $11,500 to $50,000, depending on the model--but that's still cheaper than buying a car that your robot can drive. (And it won't be nagging you for the keys to yours either.)

The RMP is making its debut in Japan, of course, land of the eventual human-free society.
