I’m in Doctor Who geek heaven right now. The folks at ThinkGeek are selling a r/c model of K9:
Doctor Who is many things to many people, but one thing he is to everyone who knows him is a dog lover. He just loves his K9’s, and he knows that a happy workplace is one with a dog (cyber or otherwise). And we whole-heartedly agree. That’s why at ThinkGeek we try to have at least two real dogs in the office and now an R/C K9. But unlike the real dogs, our R/C K9 is always willing to do our bidding.
Each quarter-scale K9 is full of lush, accurate details. From the light up eye unit and back panel to the extendable nose blaster, this R/C K9 was made to be the next best thing to owning a real K9 unit. And just like the real thing, the R/C K9 is not a quiet robot; the only difference is that you are complete control of his 7 audible phrases. Heck, even K9’s satellite-dish ears wiggle when he moves. This is more than just a great toy, this is a life companion – ready to serve you. “Affirmative, Master.”
And it’s even reasonably priced to boot!
