Sometimes a startup or idea just needs to bring a smile when things just seem mundane. Not necessarily an incredible idea, but something that made us go, “this should be on everyone’s desk”. The Takara Tomy Dancing Face-Stand not only has an incredible name that intrigues, it also brings a moment to smile in an otherwise dwindling and boring iPhone accessories market.
The little robot holds your iPhone securely after you snap a glorious picture of yourself. Utilizing the “Face Sing” app, a crazy expression of yourself is held while the robotic dance machine moves in a hypnotizing jig. The stand uses a couple of AA batteries and also accommodates an iPhone with a power cord and is expected to retail for $33 when launched next month.
This may not be the idea or startup that changes lives or leaves you thinking that’s just amazing, but we hope it at the very least makes you smile as much as it does us. Available in white, red and blue is the latest greatness to come out of Japan. Watch the video of the dancing iPhone robots on their website.
