'Tekno,' the pony-bot we never had
For every deprived childhood.
The imagination of Isaac Asimov notwithstanding, there are countless robots roaming the Earth simply to us, whether by , or . And when we tire of their efforts, others are ready to for us and even .
But face it, we've all really wanted just one thing ever since we were kids: a pony. That's why this year we're writing to Santa for "Tekno the Robotic Pony," a mechanical friend that moves in every direction by remote control but, more important, responds to being "walked, fed, brushed and played with just like a real pony," according to Gizmodiva. Even more impressive--if not a little weird--it comes with a "Tekno Translator" that "helps you find out exactly what Tekno Pony is thinking."
