The latest Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas was flooded with several different kinds of electronic innovations that may or may not not be essential to human living.

However, manufacturers keep on finding ways to best market their products and of the best efforts, on the part of the developers would be to create eye-catching, transforming USB robots or rather memory sticks (whatsoever).

These transformers are Official Transformers-brand USB memory sticks and mice, made exclusively by Toshiba.

When you look at them, they're like the kind of toys that little kids would like to play on and simply throw away anywhere. Well, not quite for these ones, because you have to keep them away from your curious children.

Transformers USB Memory Sticks are especially designed to complement the latest and future computer and laptop models of Toshiba. We just hope that even if they transform, they can still process their memory.

IPhone Sets A New Trend in Controlling Androids

ROBOFING

Who would ever thought that anybody can make an Android walk, run and jump even without having to create that robot? Adding to the IPhone vs Droid debate, IPhone is now capable of controlling androids with simple movements of the users fingers.

This new technology called 'Walky' was developed by Keio University in Tokyo especially designed to control androids. "More specifically, they've created an interface that puts control of a bipedal humanoid robot right at your fingertips."

"Walky" makes use of an IPhone's screen, enabling the robot to move with the simple movements of the fingers. Traditionally, controllers like joystick.paddles and buttons were used to control video games and remote-controlled gadgets and robots, but they do not necessarily have natural relations that's why they are difficult for first time users.

However, "Walky" uses simple commands that even newbies can get to enjoy this new technology. To operate "Walky", using the index and middle finger will make the robot walk, tapping the screen makes it jump up and down, and a flicking motion with one finger initiates a kicking motion.
