Not quite kitty clones, but I hate to start new threads...

Robot can house sit while you're gone!

TOKYO Two Japanese companies have the answer for people worried about leaving their homes empty while they go on vacation: a house-sitter robot armed with a digital camera, infrared sensors and a videophone.

Stores across Japan started taking orders earlier this month for the Roborior a watermelon-sized eyeball on wheels that glows purple, blue and orange and can sense break-ins using infrared sensors and notify homeowners by calling their cell phones and sending video from its digital camera.

The machines, developed by Japanese robot maker Tmsuk Co. Ltd. and electronics company Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd., sell for about $2,600 each.

Tmsuk has also produced a four-legged security robot called Banryu, which is about the size of a large dog and sells for $18,000.

Now if they can just arm those robodoggies with a 12 gauge shotgun and you're set. :-)
