Tamagotchi morphs into Mr. Roboto

The Little Mr. T grows up, goes mechanical.

Lest you think the Tamagotchi has suffered an untimely demise (or a timely one, depending on your view), witness the Japanese icon's latest incarnation--as a robot.

Well, sort of. The "Roboco" actually looks more like a wind-up toy with a Tamagotchi's guts. Takara Tomy's new brainchild, as it were, virtually eats, sleeps, gets sick and generally follows the same path as its needy predecessors, according to GeekSugar.

And why not? We've already seen the little Mr. T go enter its teens , go virtual and even get its own Wii game . Besides, morphing into a robot is the most natural evolution for a country that's destined for a human-free society .
