Tosy

Tosy is a robotics company based in Vietnam, and it's getting quite a bit of attention at CES 2012. Why? Justin Bieber. Yep, the Biebs will be at Tosy's booth on Wednesday to show off a new robot, but before we got caught up in Bieber fever, we checked out some of the company's other droids at the Digital Experience event on Monday night.

Facial recognition

Currently, the SketRobo can only draw images that are programmed into its system. However, Tosy plans to incoporate facial recognition software and motion sensor technology so it can draw portraits of a person's face.

DiscoRobo

Dancing robots are nothing new, but the DiscoRobo can seriously throw down. It moves to the beat of the music, and during the demo it was cutting a rug to Michael Jackson with some major attitude.
