Here at CNET UK, we love robots. We also love monkeys , so you can imagine the poo-flinging frenzy we got ourselves into when we discovered someone had crossed the two to create a robotic chimp known as Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey.

Dave, dear reader, is an 8-inch-tall, interactive simian designed to sit atop a user's arm with the help of a small harness. Once in position, he gets his funk on, responding to inputs from an infrared remote control and performing a range of actions.
