Teen heartbreaker Justin Bieber will be on hand at the Consumer Electronic Show from 1 to 3 p.m. on January 11th, pimping out some robots. Specifically: a BRAND NEW ENTERTAINMENT ROBOT by Vietnamese electronics maker TOSY Robotics, to be unveiled at the show.
“TOSY Robotics produces 4 types of products: Gigantic robots, Service robots, Industrial robots and High-tech toys,” Robonexus reports breathlessly. There is also a tiny robot. TOSY robots can play ping pong and bartend.
The “celebrities” page on the CES website is down. Maybe it’s sick with Bieber fever? But the IBT reports Mr. Bieber will be joined by Snooki, will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, Dennis Rodman, actress Eliza Dushku, and “a slew of yet-to-be announced celebrities.”
Mr. Bieber is very techie. In addition to being responsible for 3 percent of Twitter, he has a jailbroken iPhone.
