White Box Robotics Unveils World's Most Boring Robot

Harking back to the robotic craze of the early 1980s White Box Robotics has introduced the PC Bot. Basically a PC on wheels, the PC Bot is hoped by its creators to become a standard for personal robots.

Personally, I don't see a market for this product. Hobbyist can choose from a multitude of robotic kits on the market which have substantially more functionality. For the $1600 that White Box is asking, you can buy a robo-one style robot which can not only walk around but also do cartwheels!(video link).
