http://www.gamesetwatch.com/segacat.gif Of course, Sega make other things than video games, and messing around on eBay, we notice a reduced-price auction for one of the oddest in recently memory - Sega's 'Near Me' life-sized cat robot, so hideous that the auction seller actually describes it as 'creepy' while _still trying to sell it_. (It's going for $200, half of its original price of $400.)

The auction explains, somewhat vaguely: "Near Me - Robotic Android Cat by SEGA NEW IN BOX HOM-1000... Near me that has a pretty face like a real cat, Can take various poses with the real movement by 15 parts and 7 different sensors, There are two colors ; one is the white version, another one is the grey version (American short hair) Grey color version is also available, Please check my auction!"

The official Sega Toys 'Near Me' website has plenty more, but you will learn all you need to know from this demo video of the robot cat, which is so far in the Uncanny Valley, it may never get out again. Of course, if you're particularly goth and are in the market for a zombie cat...
