Darth Vader disco ball hovers over nerds who can’t dance

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2010

Look at the mirrored face of evil. Take a good hard look, because Star Wars could have turned out a lot different since it was made in the 70’s, when Disco ruled. Darth Vader could have been just a mirrored disco ball head on top of a polyester Leisure suit, force choking suckers on the dance floor. Thank god Lucas didn’t go that route.

There isn’t much info on this thing, but it was obviously made by nerds who like to shake their groove thing.

Amp follows you around, plays your tunesThis bot makes Sony’s Rolly look like the lame dancing egg that it is. AMP stands for Automated Music Personality, from Hasbro’s Tiger Electronics and Sega Toys, and it’s here to dance, follow you around with music and look just plain awesome.

It’s got Segway-like legs that dance to the beat of any MP3 player via a 3.5mm jack. Also sports 49 LEDs that shine nicely too, because bots have to have lights. The A.M.P. has touch-sensitive DJ scratching pads and 62 sound effects built in so you can jazz up your songs, and an IR sensor so he will follow you from room to room and keep the music with you at all times.

You & Pacer Suit make beautiful music together
Usually, you dance to the music. With this suit, you dance to create the music. Whether shaking your groove thing or gettin jiggy with it, you become a human musical instrument. It’s a concept that measures the electrical impulses of your muscles and converts that info into music or sound effects.

The suit can do it all by itself, with it’s amplifiers and speakers, but it’s also capable of doing so wirelessly by using infrared and a control console. With the console, the user can manipulate the sounds and arrange them alone or with sounds from others. Mostly, the Pacer Suit will just make you look like an extra from the Cantina scene in Star Wars.

Sony Rolly finally hits the U.S.
Everybody’s favorite whacked out, dancing, escape pod looking robot from Sony is finally making its way from Japan to the USA. The small egg-like bot can blast tunes from it’s built-in speakers, move its cute little flippers to the music and spin around. Is it useful? Hell no. And we like it that way.

The bot comes with pre-choreographed routines for songs. (“Also Sprach Zarathustra,” Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend”, Earth Wind and Fire’s “Boogie Wonderland”) You can also use the choreography software to create dances for own tunes. The 2GB bot can be had in black or white, and found online or in Sony stores for $400.
