Skater-bot is almost worth the $2,000

How much would you pay for a skateboarding robot?

Almost as if on cue, just after we complained about robots of dubious value , we find two toys that we especially like. First was the iPod Transformer . (OK, so it's not a real robot, but we still want one.) Second is the "Plen," a Japanese invention that can actually skate around your desk and even do skateboard tricks on any flat surface, according to Popgadget. And before you choke on the price--$2,000--be sure to check out the YouTube clip. You might just change your mind.
