Yes, I know chimps aren’t monkeys. But you know what? When you’re sitting at home wishing you had an animatroic chimp bust to play play connect four, I’ll be laughing. You know why? Because I’ll already have one. For just $149 to get my very own robot monkey (chimp).
“Now this is a real robot. So real, it’s unreal!
