Botropolis: This week in robotsThere was a bunch of robot news this week over at Botropolis. We were still recovering from how shockingly bad the Terminator movie was and the new Transformers flick that debuted didn’t impress us much either. Thank god we still have a never ending stream of robot related goodness to get us through. Here’s some of what we covered this week.

Rubber-Band Firing Wooden Robot: He’s cranked by hand.

Comic Books: Skull Headed Robot Fights Giant Monsters From Greek Mythology.

Daleks: Dalek Patrol Attacked By Roboraptors.

Robot vs. Washing Machine: Robot wins.

Tools of the trade like grappling hooks, bottles of chaos and gravity, capes, invisibility paint, jars of anti-matter, secret identity kits, deflector bracelets and so much more.

The staff treats the products as real superhero supplies and the customers as real superheros. They even try to get you to quote a superhero oath at checkout.

The TV98+ Spider-Phone from ChinaOh China, why do you hurt us so with your unlicensed cheap knock-off products? This one really hurts my eyes. The phone is bad enough, but the packaging also shows a scene from the worst Spiderman movie ever. Spider Man 3. That’s the one where he went all emo and girlly.

The Spider-Phone has a 2 Megapixel camera, a swivel color display, a microSD card slot and dual SIM card slots. It supports GSM 800/900/1800/1900 networks and is priced at HK$1180 (US$152). What are the odds that we’ll see a Goblin phone to accompany this?

Sony working on downloadable comic service for PSPLooks like SCEE is prototyping a new addition to the PSP PlayStation Store. According to a tipster, Sony is planning a service that will let you download digital comics directly to your PSP. Survey participants were asked to watch the video below and to help determine a pricing scheme: subscription or a la carte prices.

Digital comics aren’t new to the PSP, like the Metal Gear Solid comics for instance. The interactive comics were enhanced with slight animation, music and even sound effects. The PlayStation Store currently only has one digital comic available for download: The Cryptics, which will cost you $2.99.
